Sea Mist House
When you are sitting in the conservatory of Sheila Griffin’s Sea Mist House, enjoying a delicious breakfast as the bright light of Connemara bounces off the sea and into the room, make sure to look out the window and study carefully the gorgeous array of flowers that Sheila cultivates in her garden.
Don’t they make your heart sing! The tulips and bluebells, the clematis and the roses, the peonies and campanula, the angel’s fishing rods and the aquilegia. Wave after wave of colour, and all of them overlooked by the bust of Mark Anthony. Ms Griffin’s zest for her garden is matched by her zest for hospitality, and her hospitality shares an organic sense of origin, and colour, and naturalness that matches her horticulture. Sea Mist is simply peachy, one of the great destinations in Connemara, one of the great destinations on the Wild Atlantic Way, an enchanted place that casts a spell on the guest. When you stay at Sea Mist, you feel that you have truly found Connemara, in all its bright brilliance.
