The property

This stone-built, detached cottage is 1.5 miles from the town of Oughterard in popular County Galway. The cottage is an excellent retreat, set in a wooded area, where you can relax and forget about the hustle and bustle back home. Set all on the ground floor with stone walls and wooden beams, this cottage is traditional and cosy with a home-from-home feel. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a lovely evening meal or prepare a picnic for the next day’s adventures. In the evenings, curl up in front of the solid fuel stove in the sitting room and share stories of your day. Outside, the patio is a lovely area to enjoy your breakfast in the fresh Irish air, and you can always take advantage of the sun with a BBQ while the children explore the surrounding woodland. Be sure to take your time and spot the local wildlife! The nearby town of Oughterard has everything you’ll need during your stay, with local shops and traditional pubs. There is also a golf course within easy driving distance, and Lough Corrib is very close by for any fishing enthusiasts in the group. For a day trip you can visit the city of Galway and experience the vibrant culture, or discover the stunning scenery of the Connemara National Park. This cottage is a charming base, perfect for your Irish adventure.
