“Wow - So peaceful”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our family, with 2 children, stayed in the 'Anna' cottage for 6 nights in May. Greeted by a very friendly host in Riona, she spent sometime telling us about the area and things we could, and left us with leaflets and maps (our own Tourist Office). The accommodation was exceptionally clean and ample sized for a short holiday, and the facilities meant eating in was very easy. Making breakfast in the morning was great because you can look out of the windows across the sea and west coast.
The location is a long drive from the main road, but Clifton is well worth the journey for its coloured shops. We went for peace and quiet and its just what we got. There are several excellent coastal walks with amazing sights. If you're unsure - give it a go: you wont regret it.

“Lovely Lovely Lovely Place!”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed at the DARA at Bru na Mara with my father for his birthday this year from 22nd to the 28th of May and it had been the most beautiful and wonderful vacation we have ever had. It's literally a dream, something you would read about in a novel or see in a movie, but you'll be experiencing it in reality. Coming from New York City, this little sanctuary on the west coast of Ireland carried me to another world in which I still live from time to time. Riona is the most adorable lady you can imagine and we bonded instantly and I think of her and her wonderland often and so dearly. The house is immaculate to say the least, the cleanness, comfort and tasteful decor were only few of the extraordinary qualities this place had to offer.. and I can't wait to be back there with my family again!!! Thank you Riona for bringing such delight into our lives! We miss you and we will see you again soon!!!

“Fabulous place for a holiday”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent a lovely week in this property over Easter. The house itself is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a spectacular location. There are great walks all around and lots of interesting places to visit. We particularly liked the small village of Roundstone and the many lovely sandy beaches. We also spent a great day cycling on Inis Mór. The scenery in the whole region is breathtaking and we also enjoyed fabulous weather. Last, but not least, Riona was a great hostess and gave us lots of information about the area. The fact that she is a native Irish speaker was also great. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dara-Bru na Mara to anyone looking to have a relaxing holiday in a beautiful location.

We spend one week in the comfy Bru Na Mara house. We were 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids). The house is large and cozy. The place leads us to walk away in very beautifull countryside and seaside. Thanks to Riona's advise, we also visit places we'd probably miss otherwise. The coast is just amazing and we will keep in mind for a long time some really beautifull pictures of the irish beauty.
