An Irish gem

June 30, 2024

Garranbaun Lodge is a lovely comfortable country house. The photos do not do It justice. It is spacious, well equipped, charmingly decorated with beautiful and extensive gardens. There is lots to visit in the area- beautiful scenery, historic and unspoilt sites and cozy pubs and good restaurants- particularly for local seafood which is excellent. All in all highly re

Beautiful authentic property

June 30, 2024

We had a fantastic week’s stay at Garraunbaun this month. Definitely helped by spectacular weather! The house is well setup, loads of extras included such as a fully stocked pantry, and a lovely authentic period property. Plenty to do in the area and we discovered some fantastic restaurants. But the best thing to do in the area is just drive … and take in the spectacular scenery of Connemara!

Stay: 8 May 2022 to 15 May 2022

Thanks so much Barbara and Conall, we had a fantastic stay in your beautiful house. The rhododendron were in full bloom – what color! Your place was very comfortable and offered us a home away from home. Booking communication was excellent and we checked-in without a hitch.

My husband said the golf course in Ballconneely was spectacular! We enjoyed the drives through the mountains and along the Sky Road. Mostly, we liked to light the wood burning stoves and enjoy the house. The kids appreciated the fast Wifi which seemed to work everywhere in the house. The large flatscreen TV was an asset on those days when we decided to stay in.

We have booked our return trip back for next year already

Winter Family Holiday

June 30, 2024

We had a great family holiday during the off peak season – our favourite time for the West of Ireland. This is a fantastic house in a quiet rural location. The lodge is superbly decorated and furnished in a classic Victorian style with beautiful gardens.

It is well located for exploring the north Connemara region. We visited Kylemore Abbey, the Renvyle peninsula, climbed the Diamond Mountain, and on “soft” weather days we whiled away a few happy hours in the Clifden shops.

Thank you Barbara and Conall for everything.

A great house for a family

June 17, 2024

This is a very nice clean house suitable for family with kids including a den with a TV and loads of space, there’s a laundry room and the bedroom layout is very good. The house is a 13 minute drive into Clifden which is a charming small town worth spending some time in. I even managed to get some fishing in on some beautiful lakes.

The host was attentive and helpful if we had any questions.
