Fresh, simple country charm - pretty rooms with enchanting river views, freshly baked bread for breakfast... Beautiful, fragrant gardens

Read guest comments

Warm, funny, self-deprecating, Lynn adores her gorgeous garden and her guests equally, giving you her undivided attention. Her highly personal house has lavender-blue woodwork, odd chairs full of personality, windows that each frame a different, glorious view: the whole effect is fresh, simple and thoroughly country. She is artistic, has lived here all her life, knows the best fishing and walking spots, and may join you in a dip in the lake across the road. Breakfast is a treat, with homemade bread, jams and organic cereals, herbal teas for every cure. In the calm of whitewashed walls, the house breathes through wooden floors, antiques, fresh wild flowers, log fires. The pretty mixed-size bedrooms have enchanting river views and robes for the corridor run to the bathroom; the walls of the huge dining room carry musical instruments, seascapes, boats and baskets (poets, artists and musicians all gather here). An impossibly cute courtyard leads to the beautifully natural gardens; paths wind past fragrant azaleas, an organic veg patch, wild rocky outcrops to bluebell woods and a well-earned hammock. Peace at its best.

Lynn Hill:

  • Roundstone Regatta (July). A weekend of curragh racing and sailing the traditional red-sailed Galway Hookers, and Irish dancing on the quay! Good opportunity for some great photography of the boats in beautiful Roundstone Bay!
  • Clifden Arts Week (Mid-Sept for 10 days). The country’s top poets, writers, actors, musicians! So much to enjoy & see, yet still time to enjoy the peace of Connemara, out of town!
  • The old Galway to Clifden Railway line passes 1 mile from the house, and is presently being opened up as the Connemara Greenway. Enjoy miles of various lakeside walks through the Ballynahinch woods and over spectacular untouched bogland.
  • At the top of the woodland garden is a private campsite with views over the garden and the river. Small kitchen shed, fresh water, electricity and a new compost loo. A heavenly spot!
  • A personal guide can be booked for guided walks in the Connemara countryside or as an excellent ghillie for all the good spots! We have our own free brown trout fishing.
  • The pretty kitchen can also be used as a tea/coffee making point. Many herb teas and snacks available.

"My friend Marie Duffy and I stayed with Lynn when I was living in Cheshire about 2005. We had a wonderful time and on a rainy day, we borrowed some boots from Lynn and walked to the old deserted stone church where Cromwell's men attacked the monks and they all swam across the bay to their deaths! The atmosphere was amazing and the scenery superb. We had supper in the bar at Ballynahinch Castle nearby and chatted to a fisherman who was in all the gear with his dogs and ghillie. We had dinner at the 'Vaghaun's hotel in nearby 'Roundstone' and saw the place where they made the drums."
