About the property

Luxury Cottage, Located on the Quay with 'The Best View in Ireland'

Roundstone Rentals ( is proud to bring to you an exclusive self-catering property on the village quay in one of Ireland's most sought after holiday locations.

The Quay House has oil fired central heating, wireless broadband, satellite TV, free parking outside the door, hotel standard beds, linen and goose down duvets

The view from the living room and bedrooms, described as one of the best views in Ireland, is ever changing throughout the seasons. The cottage is located on the pier in the heart of the fishing village of Roundstone in the Connemara region, an area famous worldwide for its picturesque views, award-winning restaurants, fishing, walking and breathtaking beaches. O'Dowds Bar & Restaurant and Vaughan's Roundstone House Hotel, only metres from the house, serve award winning seafood throughout the season.

For those with kayaks or even their own boat, the cottage provides a fantastic base for your holiday where you can step outside your front door and into your boat, moored in the shelter of Roundstone Harbour.

Golden sand and crystal clear water can be found at Gurteen Beach and Dogs Bay, only 2 km away. These beaches are a mecca for swimming and beach combing during the summer months. Climb Errisbeg mountain behind the village and return for O'Dowd's famous seafood chowder, or locally picked mussels prior to a short stroll down the harbour to the luxury of the Quay House

Roundstone Rentals is a small family operated business. We own and manage the Quay properties and make every effort to ensure that our guests have a memorable holiday. We live nearby and are available to meet you on arrival to ensure that you get settled in.

Dream house, dream location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this great house. The views from every window overlooking the quay, local fishermen getting ready and the islands across the bay were superb. The house is so clean, spacious and comfortable with everything we needed to make our stay relaxed. The location was ideal for exploring the coastal drives, Ballynahinch Castle and Clifton. We enjoyed the local walks too and local excellent!

Great View and Location

  • 5 of 5

Last time we were in Roundstone we saw this property whilst wandering around the harbour. the views are stunning and the location is perfect for the pubs and restaurants in the village. the house was very spacious and well equipped, the fire was very welcome on a few chilly evenings. I would wholly recommend staying her for the view out of the front of the house alone. Thanks!

Ticked all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

I booked Quay House as I wanted to spend my St Patrick’s Day birthday in a small Irish village that had character. Not only was Roundstone perfect for this but so was the property as we were able to use it to host a fabulous dinner one evening. Anne and Simon were very helpful and we all loved the mackerel from the local Smokehouse. Thank you for helping to make my special birthday very memorable.

Perfect Get-Away in Connemara

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two fabulous nights at the Quay in Roundstone. Everything was great -- the house was warm, O'Dowds up the street was delicious, the view from the house is truly the best I've seen at any airbnb, communication with Anne was smooth and very clear, the fire was cozy, the place was well-equipped, wifi was perfect -- the whole experience was easy and comfortable. The only problem was that we never wanted to leave! Thanks for everything, Anne! My family will always cherish our time in Roundstone!

spacious comfortable house in brilliant location.

  • 5 of 5

Three great bedrooms, two with stunning views. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge area with effective central heating and the option of an open fire. Plenty of games, jigsaws etc but disappointed there was no DVD player as expected. Great pub in easy walking distance, recommend food. A great base to explore the area, incredible views. Lowry’s bar and Mannion’s are a ‘must’ to visit in Clifden for food and live music. A fantastic holiday!
