Avoid Roundstone... the village is finished. Was out there two weeks ago on a weekend and the only place open was ODowds...four people there in total. No shops, no post office opened anymore...nice scenery but is literally just a place for a coffee stop nothing else.
I have holidayed near there for the past few years. Pretty village, but my word as indicated you have to endure some complete D4 specimens …. usually they congregate around the wall opposite O’Dowds for evening pints in the summer. The older crowd are self regarding types with the attendant offspring, piggybacking off Mummy and Daddy … As one local described it where there used to be the ‘Galway tent’, those ‘in the know’ who see themselves as the real movers and shakers congregate in Roundstone. I suppose they do give some injection to the local economy, but the downside is the village and hinterland is now predominantly holiday homes which means for about 7 months of the year it is denuded of residents
Anyway, there is a decent Sunday market and nice views to enjoy a coffee or something stronger. My tuppence worth
Think you've been on that grassy knoll too long! Zombie thread.
Anyway, agree completely. Lovely place expect for those who frequent it. The Galway wannabee D4 types are even worse than the real D4 types!
And a few hill walks https://roundstonevillage.ie/walking/
