Rosmuc Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Rosmuc Cottage is a detached, mostly ground floor cottage which dates from the 1800s and has been delightfully restored and modernised. It has three bedrooms (a twin, a double and a mezzanine single) and a family shower room. There is a large open plan living area with a fitted kitchen (with a breakfast bar), a dining area and a sitting area with a welcoming woodburning stove. Outside the front of the cottage is lawned garden with outside furniture and a barbecue, off road parking for four cars as well as outbuildings for storing bikes, fishing gear and wet suits. Framed by beautiful rugged coastline, beaches and mountains, Rosmuc Cottage is an enchanting place to spend a memorable holiday.

Rosmuc is set in the heart of Connemara in a picturesque location between the mountains and the sea. The town of Clifden is a short drive away, and is home to a fantastic range of pubs, shops and restaurants, and plays host to a variety of colourful festivals throughout the year. Just 15 minutes' drive from Rosmuc is Rossaveal Harbour, where you can catch a day ferry to the Aran Islands where you can step back in time and see some of the finest examples of Stone built forts in Europe. Connemara National Park is close by for a great day out, as is the world famous Kylemore Abbey with its breathtaking views and beautiful setting. With guided walking tours, world class golf, horse riding, angling, historic houses and boat trips to enjoy, there is something to please even the most discerning of visitors!

Towering cliffs stand next to vast stretches of golden sand, whilst vast mountain ranges cradle cool, low-lying lakes. The Galway region epitomises the term ‘great outdoors'; with fantastic walking and cycling and exhilarating water sports.

The holiday was really lovely, enhanced by being in a traditional historic cottage. The area was all we expected, quiet, rural and unspoilt.

An absolutely lovely cottage in stunning surroundings, with a great enclosed garden that the dogs loved. Would love to go back!

We had a fantastic holiday. The cottage was fantastic and the garden and surrounding area was stunning. We would and already have recommend this property to our families and friends. Thank you to the owner for a truly comfortable stay. Will definitely come again.

We spent a week in this beautiful cottage in a lovely location. The property is full of character, very well equipped with everything we could want. The garden was lovely to laze in when the sun shone and a day was spent lazing by the fire, reading when it rained. A great location and we would buy this cottage if it was for sale! The most relaxing place in Ireland!

This is a great cottage, cosy and well equipped. One of the best we have stayed at. Very comfortable and for a restful holiday it was perfect. No hesitation in recommending this cottage.

The surrounding area is beautiful, a great place for long walks. People were very friendly in the local pub.

The provision of turf and wood was a big advantage, particularly in winter. Ample provision of saucepans and utensils made cooking of Christmas dinner straightforward.

We wanted somewhere remote, close to water and with grounds for the dogs to run and play. This property was ideal for that. Also, the owner provided a lovely personal welcome, with a roaring fire already on the go.

Was brilliant to have all mod cons on holiday i.e. dishwasher, tumble etc. Lots of accessories, plates, crockery and more. Very comfortable. The cafe at the sailing club in Clifden served lovely food. Con National Park was lovely and Dogs Bay Beach gorgeous!! Kids loved everything and are missing the cottage and Ireland.

A very well equipped cottage with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. The scenery was absolutely wonderful and we were lucky and had wonderful weather - 24/25 degrees for the whole week. An excellent base from which to tour the Connemara area. This holiday certainly exceeded our expectations - we returned totally relaxed. Thank you for a wonderful location and holiday.

This cottage exceeded our expectations. A stunning cottage in a rural setting, it was peaceful and quiet. The cottage contained everything that could make our stay easy - we were amazed at how well equipped it was! We were greeted by the owner who had started a fire in the wood burner, this was such a wonderful welcome after our journey. Galway is every bit as stunning as we had hoped, we had a perfect week exploring and left feeling relaxed and determined to return. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage to others.

Fabulous location and the walk to the rocky coast at the bottom of the land was an absolute treat. Lovely cottage with everything we needed for our stay. Great welcome from the owner. The shower was fantastic!
Mr Robinson

Rosmuc Cottage is in a beautiful peaceful location, there are plenty places to visit e.g. Cong, Cliften, Orterard and also Galway. The cottage itself is absolutely lovely with tiled and wooden floors, it has everything you will need from iron, hairdryer to dishwasher, washer and dryer. The owner was a lovely welcoming lady who made us feel at home. We were just sorry we couldn't say thank you and goodbye because we had to leave as we had a long drive to get the ferry. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous cottage, it's a fab place to visit. Thanks again.

Wonderfully warm welcome. Great garden, all enclosed, for our dog. Plenty of parking space.
Mr Boyland

A haven of peace and tranquility. Very friendly pub/garage/shop. Coastline through gate beautiful and shared only with a few cows. Attention to detail in equipping cottage was second to none. A lot of care and attention had been applied.
March 2014
Lovely cottage bit south of Connemara proper, just a bit too far from galway. Great place to snuggle up with a book in front of the fire. Lovely owner, kitted out well. Dogs had a great time and we relaxed:)
July 2013
Have just had one of the most relaxing holidays. The countryside is spectacular and the cottage a fantastic base. The dogs enjoyed it also, albeit the weather was very hot but there's plenty of water around, lakes or sea. People very friendly and welcoming.

We stayed here towards the end of Sept and had a wonderful week long holiday. The cottage is really well equipped and has a fabulous shower!! The Rosmuc area is really lovely - we explored the area on foot on mainly quiet lanes and deserted beaches. The walk from the cottage across the cottage's land to the coast was lovely and we even saw an Irish hare down there a couple of times, which was a real treat. Aside from the immediate area being lovely, the cottage is conveniently located for travelling either to Galway City and the wider Connemara area. It's easy enough to hop onto the main road and head in whichever direction you'd like to. The owner was very welcoming and accommodating with arrival and departure arrangements. All in all, a great holiday, super cottage and really wonderful location. We'd happily return!

Nos atendio la Sra Joyce, que fue bastante comprensiva con nuestro retraso, ya que nos perdimos en dos ocasiones. Era educada y amable. La vivienda era perfecta, con todas las comodidades que se describen y todo lo necesario en una casa de campo. La ubicacion, perfecta, todo rodeado de lagos. Precioso y cercano a todo lo visitable en esa zona. Los vecinos de la zona, amables, simpaticos y dispuestos a ayudarnos en todo momento, ya que al ser extranjeros no hablabamos apenas ingles.

We had a lovely holiday at this beautiful cottage. The cottage was very well equipped and perfect for a family of four. The owner was very friendly and helpful and very understanding when we arrived late, having taken a couple of wrong turns. We particuarly enjoyed the deserted local beaches and fell in love with the whole area. Thank you!

The surroundings were so beautiful, it is a perfect retreat from a busy work/life balance. The cottage was extremely cosy and had everything you could wish for. Its location whilst remote is still close enough to the main road which makes travelling for days out much simpler.
