Set all on the ground floor, this traditional cottage is ideal for families or friends looking to explore this glorious region of County Galway. Offering three spacious bedrooms, a double, a family room and an adult bunk room there are flexible sleeping arrangements whatever your party size. The large kitchen has a dining area so that everyone can get together over breakfast as you chat over the plans for the day. The sitting room with its warming open fire invites you to curl up and relax together after a busy day exploring the region. On summer days guests can step outside to the front lawned garden and relax with a cool drink, whilst the children run off their energy or for sun-worshippers the rear gravelled patio is an ideal spot for catching the sun’s rays.
