The property

Situated just two miles from the pretty village of Leenane in County Galway is this delightful detached cottage. Well-presented and tastefully decorated, this charming cottage makes a great romantic retreat or a base for a small family to explore the scenic west coast of Ireland. Set out all on the ground floor, the property opens into a spacious, social open plan living area, featuring a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area to gather together and make plans and a cosy sitting area with a warming multi-fuel stove for those chilly evenings. Two comfortable bedrooms, ensuring you rest up well ready for the next day, and a shower room complete the accommodation making this cottage a great choice for your Irish holiday. Enjoy your morning coffee outside the front of the property, taking in the unforgettable scenic views of the surrounding area. The picturesque village of Leenane is a short drive from the cottage and has a couple of shops for your basic needs and also a few local pubs to visit for a quick pint. Known as the ‘Gateway to Connemara’, Leenane is ideally situated near the Galway/Mayo border making it a great touring base for both locations and there is excellent access to the Wild Atlantic Way with its rugged scenery. The bustling towns of Clifden and Westport are within easy reach of the cottage, each offering a variety of restaurants, boutique shops and traditional pubs playing Irish music, allowing guests to soak up local culture during their stay. A half hour drive will take you to sandy Silver Strand Beach, popular with young families, where you can dip your toes in the Atlantic Ocean or further afield, Coral Beach in Carraroe has lots of rock pools for little adventurers to explore. An ideal cottage in a spectacular location, with scenery like this you won’t want to go home.
