Within the Village

The ‘Within the Village’ experience has been created as a unique self-catering accommodation offering in the centre of Roundstone village. Its aim is to appeal to the seasoned traveller seeking immersive, pared back, design – led luxury in the heart of beautiful Connemara throughout the twelve months of the year, and offer exceptional customer service.


The original building consisted of three 100+ year old townhouses where generations of the local Connolly and Faherty families lived down through the years. Most recently it was Connolly’s bar, shop and B&B. Many locals and visitors to Roundstone enjoyed wonderful hospitality and friendship in these houses over the years and have happy memories and great stories of good times past.

Throughout the renovation project, we have tried to preserve what we could of the beauty and heritage of these old houses in the heart of the village.

We have brought the natural beauty of the incredible landscape of Connemara into the design of the interiors and exteriors through the use of local craftsmanship, materials and colour. And we will strive to continue to provide life, welcome and hospitality, behind these 3 front doors for many years to come



We have created 5 boutique self-catering townhouses and intimate event space behind these 3 front doors. The building consists of three 3-bedroom townhouses, one 2-bedroom, and one 1 bedroom retreats, each with your own small private outdoor space, accommodating 2 – 27 people in total. Each townhouse can be rented individually on a 3, 4 or 7 night basis (exceptions for July, August and holidays)

The whole building is also available to hire on an exclusive-stay basis for minimum 3 night stays and is the ideal venue to host small intimate events such as special family occasions, celebrations and groups.

There is a serviced central reception area and a multi-use outdoor communal garden space designed to capture the beauty of the area.

A Concierge service is provided on check-in, departure and for various times throughout your stay.
