This charming cottage is set in its own grounds, 1.8 miles from Ballyconneely village, 8 miles from Clifden (the capital of Connemara) and within an hours drive of Galway city. It is the real traditional cottage with some furnishings dating back to 1936 including a deep, wide cast-iron bath. It enjoys views over the coastline and the Twelve Pin mountains. It provides a great base for those seeking peace and tranquillity. For those more active there are two bicycles provided for your own use. Ballyconneely 18 hole golf course and Gurteen Bay sandy beach within 5 miles.

No visit to Connemara or the West of Ireland would be complete without a visit to Ballyconneely . This peninsula, jutting into the Atlantic between Clifden to the north and Roundstone to the south, contains some of the most tranquil, unspoilt and interesting countryside to be found anywhere in the country. Its name translates from the Irish as Conneelys Village, and is based on the old civil parish of Ballindoon which in turn was named from the old fort or cashel on Doon Hill built by the McGeogegan family to celebrate the restoration of free trade in the late eighteenth century. The peninsula is virtually ringed by beaches - from the Coral Strand at Derrygimla, west and north to Knock, Mannin, Dunloughan and Truska, and east and south from Keeraunmore, Aillebrack, and Ballyconneely Bay to Calla, Dolan and Murvey. As well as being ideal for bathing, some of those beaches provide excellent bases for shore fishermen. Today the area is home to a vibrant, thriving community and boasts many attractions for our visitors. The magnificent 27-hole Connemara Golf Links is located at Aillebrack. Three miles to the east, there is the Roundstone Bog, a vast expanse of moor, lake and stream, teeming with undisturbed wildlife and rare plants, an area which is almost haunting in its serene tranquility, especially in the early morning and late Summer evenings. Our already mentioned beaches, as well as providing excellent bathing have an abundance of edible shellfish and molluscs accessible at low tides. These include Clams, Cockles, Mussels, Razorfish, Sea Urchin, Shrimp and Scallops, and with local knowledge, the occasional Lobster!
