Why Us?



What we love

Architecturally designed and built by members of the Keane family, Ti Mhaggie is a luxurious, detached retreat overlooking Gowla Bay, on the Wild Atlantic Way in Connemara. Relax in the natural garden, or sit in the sun room and watch the ever-changing tide against a backdrop of the unspoilt Connemara Hills with all its colour and beauty. This detached, single-storey house is ideally situated for anybody wanting to absolutely get away from the hustle and bustle of busy living, but yet keep all the comforts of home including an Apple iMac PC and wireless printer for guests to use. The quiet village of Carna is just 5 miles away, and here you will find a selection of shops and pubs (some with Irish music sessions). Clifden, a pretty and lively town, is about 15 miles away and is home to several festivals during the year such as The Horse Fair and The Arts Festival.

For the more active, the area is a wonderful walker’s paradise, with both roadway and hill walking readily available. The owner’s 26 acres of grounds are also available for guests to use just a short distance away. There is beach pony trekking in Ballyconneely, near Clifden, and miles of quiet roads to cycle on. Lake, river or deep sea fishing can also be found nearby, and guests can actually bring their own boat as the owner’s land is on the shoreline. During the summer months, there are regattas in the bay, with old fashioned Irish boats such as ’currachs’ and ’Galway Hookers.’ There are beautiful, white sand beaches in Carna, and sea kayaking is also available. There are also many islands in the area to explore. For golfers, Oughterard is a lovely parkland course, and Connemara Golf Club in Ballyconneely is a challenging links course. Kylemore Abbey, the Connemara National Park, the Aran Islands, Inisbofin and Galway City are all worth a day trip and are within easy reach. Shannon airport is 160km away, and Dublin airport is 280km away. Beach 6 miles. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

Approximate distance to Knock airport is 128 km.

    Whoever built and decorated Ti Mhaggie is a genius--this place is a masterwork; and no, I'm not being paid a euro, a cent, or anything at all to say that. Gorgeous cottage, beautifully situated (Gowla Bay is out your window), intelligently appointed (very smart use of all the space) and thoughtfully provisioned with "starter" stuff you might need after a long journey: coffee, tea, sugar, start wood for the fireplace, etc. When I and my relations arrived, the owner was waiting for us with a fire started. We had a fantastic time & would stay again without hesitation. To add to other reviews a few things we especially enjoyed were: * Absolutely enormous full rain shower; having a gigantic rain shower head--largest I've ever seen, and my wife and I have been to at least half a dozen 5 Star hotels having rain showers. This beat them all. Plus there was a series of 6 (!) shower heads flanking the sides, so you could use that alternatively. * The Donkey neighbors out back who you can see through the kitchen window * Too many thoughtful features to list (great design / efficient / space saving); I probably snapped two dozen pictures for design ideas to apply for a new home we bought here in Florida this past summer (2019). There was only one downside: one of the "King" sleigh beds, in the room facing the Donkeys, seemed a lot smaller than a US-defined King bed. Felt more like a Queen or Double. And was a bit uncomfortable. Upgrade the beds and I'd give Ti Mhaggie an "11" rating overall--were it possible to do so. Being a yank, I feel bad "complaining" / commenting about the bed. But we stayed in other hotels 'round Ireland that had comfy, US-dimension King beds. On the other hand, we realized from reading the guest book that visitors to Ti Mhaggie are largely from the Ireland and the UK; and so are probably accustomed to the bed sizes. My wife and I are anything but plump--I myself could stand to gain around 10 pounds or a stone or two. But we are used to large US-style beds. But the mattress itself was more of an issue--just wasn't comfy. So a simple replacement of the mattress, same size, keeping the same lovely frame, would be wonderful. It's one of the few improvements I can conceive of, as the owners thought of nearly everything. Thanks again so much to the owners for making our holiday in Ireland extra special. Relations at home were absolutely *gushing* with the photos we were posting of Ti Mhaggie to social media

    An absolute beautiful gem of a property in a relaxing and peaceful part of South Conemara. If you want a quiet break away from civilisation and a place to re-charge your batteries then this is the place for you.
