The property sits at the lower slopes of Errisbeg mountain which overlooks Roundstone Village. Errisbeg (Urrisbeg) was the original settlement on the side of the hill of that name and itself predates Roundstone.
The property has views of Roundstone bay and is within 10 minutes walk of Roundstone village itself. Both Gurteen Bay and Dog’s Bay ( which was originally known as Port na Feadóige, the bay of the plover), two of the loveliest and best well known Connemara beaches which attract a large number of visitors and are justly famous for their exceptional beauty and long white sandy beaches. These beaches are approx. 5 mins drive from the property.
Roundstone derives its name from the anglicised corruption of Cloch Na Rón, the rock of the seals. The bay was used by smugglers into the 18th Century while the village itself dating back to the 1820’s was built by Alexander Nimmo.
