The property

Located on the popular Wild Atlantic Way, in the hamlet of Claddaghduff, lies a charming, detached cottage with stunning, panoramic sea views on County Galway’s coastline. This comfortable Galway cottage is brilliantly located for a relaxing break for friends and families, with the shop, pub, and sandy beach situated just a five minute walk away so you can leave your car parked at the cottage and completely unwind! There are five bedrooms in this Claddaghduff cottage, three double rooms on the ground floor, and two family rooms upstairs each housing a king-size double and a single bed. One of the ground floor bedrooms has its own en-suite facilities and there are also two family-sized bathrooms, one of which is also located on the ground floor. There is a well-equipped kitchen, a dining room, and a sitting room with a cosy open fire, perfect for retiring by after a day exploring this glorious corner of Ireland. Settle down with a good book and a glass of wine in the conservatory enjoying spectacular seascapes, and in the summer, step out into the garden, a large, fabulous lawn where the kids can play while you keep an eye on them and soak up the sunshine. The quiet, friendly village of Claddaghduff has a shop, pub, and beautiful stretches of golden, sandy beaches reaching out to Omey Island, which you can walk to when the tide is out. Uncover a treasure trove of attractions from the comfort of this Claddaghduff cottage, from long, romantic walks on the beach, to chasing the luck of the Irish with fun-filled days at the Omey Races! Keen fisherman will most certainly want to visit Couhoor Lake, and the seaside village of Cleggan, with its delicious seafood restaurants and trips to Inishbofin Island, is just an easy drive away from this Claddaghduff cottage. Visit Clifden, a delightful market town, where you can peruse a marvellous selection of unique boutique and independent shops followed by a pint of the black stuff in one of its lively pubs, or a day at the annual Connemara pony show! Pack your walking boots or climb in the saddle, either way with your camera, and discover the breathtaking mountain landscapes of the Connemara National Park. On lazy afternoons, pay a visit to beautiful Kylemore Abbey and stroll around its tranquil Victorian walled gardens, or venture to Galway City and spend the day shopping and drinking with many pubs showcasing live traditional folk music! Whatever the weather, and whatever type of holiday you are looking for, a stay in this Claddaghduff cottage will be exactly what you need for the perfect Irish getaway.
