Cottages have comfort and amenities fitting with the traditional style. Especially memorable was the Oiche Shamhna or Halloween evening of food, song, and story by the fire. Dearbhaill and Charlie are consummate hosts.

This proved to be inspirational and perfect for a group experience. We learned about Gaelic culture in some detail (while sitting in the thatched roof cottage with a fire going no less) as well as were treated to some music and dancing lessons.So interesting and inspiring! The hosts were fantastic--passionate and welcoming and very relatable. On a subsequent trip I...

Derbhail and Charlie are the very best of Ireland – warm, passionate, fiercely independent people who have created a truly remarkable refuge for weary souls and curious travellers in a beautiful corner of the country. I love this place.

I stayed in the cottage for 2 nights as part of my solo get away to recharge my batteries. I can't imagine finding a better place to do that. The peace and tranquility of the place are perfect for such escape. The cottage has all the comforts you might find in a well furnished hotel room ( fully furnished kitchen...

We rent the 1 bedroom cottage and it was just perfect. The cottage is fully equipped (even with underfloor heating) and a nice fireplace. It is a quiet retreat, but still an ideal starting point to discover Connemara. The owners of the cottage were very nice and offer helpful advice about the area. We can only recommend everybody to stay...

This is the spot to be if you love nature, history, organic gardening and...

Stayed in the one bed roomed cottage for a week at the end of April. Cnoc Suain is 5 minutes of the coast road from Spiddal - easy to find as it is signposted off the road. We picked this cottage as it looked ideal and the location was perfect for touring both sides of a Galway Bay. The cottage...

We had the most amazing time in our little cottage retreat and it was perfect for what we needed. The Forge pub is less than 10 minutes away and a great place to enjoy some good home cooked food and the farmers market on a Friday is a great place to pick up good local produce from surrounding areas. Charlie...

The major desire my wife had of our trip to Ireland was to spend some time in a "traditional Irish Cottage" (think Quiet Man). We had the An Nead Cottage (cozy one bedroom). We found this and more at Cnoc Suain. We spent wonderful time with Charlie and Dearbhail (owners), learning about the Gaelic language, music, and the life in...
