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.

Perfect in every way! House was clean and very efficient!

  • 5 of 5

Simon and Anne had everything ready for us. The house was clean, adorable, and in a perfect location for day trips and walks throughout the town. It is still off season so not much open in Roundstone but O'Dowd's served excellent and reasonable meals. Mary is a gem. Clifden was a short ride and we listened to live music a few nights in the pubs. We loved, loved, loved our trip to Roundstone and staying at Quay House.

Beautiful home in a great location! The home is well appointed and cozy. We enjoyed the views in all weather and especially enjoyed having a fire in the evenings. Roundstone is a lovely place with very hospitable people, I highly recommend it! Anne was so easy to work with and a pleasure to meet!

Fluent Guinness

  • 5 of 5

My 85 year old father and my brother made the pilgrimage back to Connemara to stay on the Quay at Roundstone where used to holiday very summer in the early 1970's. The view was the same, the weather was the same (sunny above the clouds) and the welcome was the same. The big change was that when I was 10 I didn't understand Guinness, but now I speak it fluently. Thank you for a lovely week Anne, your house is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Robin, it was such a pleasure to meet you all and I'm glad to hear you became properly acquainted with Lady Guinness this time around! We do hope you will be reunited again some day soon!! Best Anne

Great house, superb location and well maintained. The satellite TV and DVD player didn't work properly but actually made us appreciate even more what a great place this really is. For a week away from the rat-race, it doesn't get much better than this. We miss it already!

Owner's Response: Dear Graham Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, as you know this is so helpful for us and for future renters alike! I really do apologise re the satellite TV and system not functioning 100% and I would like to confirm that this has since been rectified, we have installed a brand new Smart TV and updated the whole system. Not much good to you now but hopefully you'll come back some day to check it out?!!! Best wishes to you Anne
