We had a lovely stay at the Sealhaven! And did see seals down at the very close seaside! Our room and bathroom were very comfortable, and our host left a really nice breakfast for us. We would recommend this place to stay.

Fantastic place and an even more fantastic host! Those wild Atlantic way fans out there will love r the proximity to the coastline. Marie was hospitable and was generous with her time (and fresh soda bread right out of the oven)! Mind we did get her on her day off so that helped her manage us, still a wealth of information about the language and geography of the area. Super comfortable bed in a spacious room, and the shower has tons of water pressure. Best stay of the trip.

Was a perfect location to get into Galway and then the Aran Islands. Restaurant recommendation was spot on. Scenery is breathtaking. Home is a very short walk to the rocky coast. Rooms are large as well as bathrooms. Had a wonderful visit to the area and with Maire and her daughter. Thanks so much!

My mother, dog and I had a lovely stay in Máire's house. Our room was clean, warm and cosy. The bed was comfortable and the room a good size. Máire had a lovely breakfast prepared for us and even made us some homemade scones. We'd be happy to return here.

Wonderful stay at Maire's comfortable home. Breakfast a true pleasure with home made scones straight from Marie's homely kitchen. Maire and her family very welcoming and helpful with advice on local beaches. Highly recommended and very happy we chose to stay at Seal Haven. Would stay again with no hesitation.

The house is wondeful with big and clean bedrooms. And, most of all, Maire is a very kind and helpful host. Thank you, Maire.
