About us

Every room is equipped with a fan, closet, soap, shampoo and hair dryer. Wifi is available throughout the house.

We use only natural environmentally safe cleaning products – whether it is for laundry purposes or keeping our home clean and fresh.
Our guests are invited to relax on the deck, surrounded by trees in very quiet surroundings in rural Ottawa.

Connemara is a great place to stay, if one is looking for quiet, solitude, but want to experience down to earth old fashioned Irish hospitality.

A lot of our guests like to enjoy breakfast in the kitchen, or on the deck, but for those who like to have  breakfast in a more quiet surrounding  – our dining room is open to all.
Our varied breakfast menu will spoil you, as we use locally purchased food made with only the freshest natural ingredients – no additives or chemicals.

Play a round or two at any of the five nearby golf courses.  Visit Watson’s Mill, fine restaurants and shops in nearby Manotick or the Canadian artisans and craft shops in historic Merrickville.

We are open year round, so plan to visit during such exciting events as Winterlude, and skate on the world’s longest skating rink; or attend the annual Tulip festival and Blues Fest.

After going through a very tragic experience, I moved back to the area my ancestors came to when they immigrated from Ireland in 1826.
I built a home keeping the natural surroundings – the forest and all.  Because this is  where I healed, found myself, I have a strong urge to share it with others.
The peace, the quiet, and the serenity of the environment allows one to experience the opportunity to become creative and reflect.

So if you need a quiet space to  plan that important meeting;  a  place to collect your thoughts; a place to write or draw;  or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city without being too far from the city,  Connemara is your sanctuary.  We serve breakfast only and make the best cup of coffee!
