Amazing landscape, beautiful spot. We stayed for one week. The apartment and the place fully met our expectations. Ideal for a quiet and relaxing stay to enjoy the lovely coast and nature.

Such a wonderful location. We spent a week in Carna at Riona’s and found it to be a restful, quiet and perfect place. While it’s a drive to get to for many, we found it well worth it for the beautiful oceanfront views and walks.

Fabulous relaxing holiday. An absolutely stunning place looking out to sea. The cottage was lovely and homely with everything we needed. An absolute treasure of a find.
