The cottage is located close to many beautiful beaches in one of the most scenic spots along the Wild Atlantic Way in Connemara. The views are simply breathtaking.

The space

It is a small 2 bedroom cottage with garden, patio and outside decking area overlooking the sea. The inside space comprises a kitchen/dining area, cosy sitting room and bathroom on the ground floor. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs which are accessed by a wooden ladder (please note this may not be suitable for young children or elderly/infirm adults – look at the photos to decide whether it is suitable for you and your group). Upstairs there is one bedroom with a king-size bed and another bedroom with 2 single beds, sleeping 4 people in total.

The door from the kitchen leads out to the decking area from which you can enjoy fabulous sea views. In the summer months you can see beautiful sunsets over the sea and if you’re lucky you might even catch sight of dolphins passing by!

The cottage combines many traditional features with modern conveniences including a multi-fuel stove, electric heating, hot water, a fully equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and everything you need to cook your own meals. There is WiFi, a TV, Xbox, dvds, games and lots of books. In the adjacent shed you will find a washing machine and clothes dryer, along with a BBQ and outdoor furniture for your use.

Depending on the weather, the cottage can be a calm and idyllic place; a real paradise, or wild and windswept as it sits on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Either way it’s a special place to be. It’s particularly suitable for couples looking for a romantic getaway or small groups of friends/family who want to experience the raw beauty of the West of Ireland.
