Located in the exceptionally picturesque fishing village of Roundstone, these welcoming self catering holiday houses enjoy an enviable position overlooking Roundstone Bay and the Twelve Bens mountain range, and will appeal to 3 generation families and friends groups, meeting for a holiday or to celebrate an important occasion.

This is a great base for touring Connemara and the Aran Islands. Gurteen beach and stunning Dog's Bay are within easy reach and offer fantastic opportunities for watersports, hiking and sea swimming. Connemara National Park is one of Galway's highlights with mountain walks, bogs, grasslands and woodlands, a must see for rare plant life and birds.

Island View is a comfortable home from home with attractive living spaces and fantastic sea and mountain views - with the sea just across the road. The kitchen diner is fully equipped for preparing group meals and eating together at the table sitting 12. The outside decked covered seating and picnic benches are perfect for a barbecue or drinks, with a fire pit too. The cosy lounge has plenty of sofas and a warming wood stove. Bedroom accommodation is spacious with contemporary soft furnishings, TVs and tea making facilities, pleasant and snug at the end of a day out.

The Old Bakery and Abby's Cottage offer additional space, both in the centre of the village.

The Roundstone Regatta is held in July each year and Island View probably offers some of the best seats in the house to watch the traditional sailing vessels and rowing competitions. Roundstone itself is a pretty coastal village and well worth a wander around the quaint harbour watching the boats come in and sampling the local shops and cafes. Boat tours of the bay also available in summer season. National park, Kylemore Abbey and boats to Aran and Inish boffin all less than 1 hr away. Galway, over an hour away, is the only city on the Wild Atlantic Way and marks the halfway point. Galway is a cosmopolitan centre full of culture, cobbled streets, festivals and bars - a grand day out.
