The location of this cottage took our breath away. The sea is a stone's throw away from the front garden. A beautiful, calm inlet - a small islet with a lively tern colony just offshore. The terns feeding their young was often the only noise we heard. But behind all this were the twelve bens - or at least five of them - shining in the sun that we got for the first few days of our stay. After we climbed Diamond Hill from the National Park (just 5 minutes away by car), we were able to look smugly over at its craggy peak and say - "We were up there!".
The cottage itself is extremely comfortable for adults and fascinating for the kids. The garden had various interesting nooks and crannies and when it did rain, there was so much for them to do in the games room. They also enjoyed the fantastic beach at Renvyle just 10 minutes away, while the adults enjoyed the odd pint in the bars at Letterfrack. The shop in Letterfrack was excellent - we are veggies and it stocked a surprisingly good range of stuff that we like.
All in all it was an idyllic week and it just ended too soon. We hope to come back again before long. Thank you Sandra for meeting us on our arrival and for your hospitality.
Cottage is a short distance from Letterfrack with pubs, restaurant and we'll stocked shop. Ideal for Clifden and the Connemara National Park. Nice location overlooking the Bay with secluded garden. We arrived late however the owner stayed to welcome us and ensure we were happy with everything.
A unique and characterful cottage in an idyllic location. We had a wonderful stay here! We were met with a warm welcome from the owner who went beyond the call of duty with help during our stay. The lodge is very well furnished and equipped, and stands in a wonderful garden overlooking the bay. It is a real home from home with a lovely atmosphere.
Letterfrack village, 2 miles away, has all the essential amenities whilst Clifden, a 20 minute drive, has a much wider range of shops, restaurants, a cinema, sports centre etc. This is a beautiful area and there is plenty to do and see without venturing too far.
All in all, the cottage and the location were everything we had hoped for and more. We couldn't imagine a better place to be on holiday and would love to return for another stay.
