How to get there

St Flannans Cottage is on Errislannan Peninsula on the west coast of Ireland, four miles (6.5Km) south of Clifden. It's about half way between Clifden and the Connemara Golf Club at Ballyconneely (Championship Links Golf Course).

You really need a car so either come by ferry or fly and drive. We usually come from the UK via Liverpool or Holyhead to Dublin. Either Dublin port or Dun Laoghaire. They are both easy and the drive across Ireland only takes 4 hours. If flying Galway is the closest (1.5hrs) airport but seems to be in terminal decline regarding choice of flights. A better choice is had at Knock Airport (2.5hrs) and the hire cars are cheaper. It’s a pretty drive if you are not in a rush.Shannon is more international (3.5hrs).
