The property

This lovely detached, single-storey cottage is situated in the village of Roundstone, County Galway. Dating back to the 19th century, this property is suitable for a couple or family who wish to explore this excellent area of the Emerald Isle. Inside this delightful cottage is a sitting room which boasts a vaulted ceiling that has been preserved from the original cottage, along with a cosy woodburning stove. The kitchen with dining area is well-equipped, and there are two bedrooms, consisting of a large double bedroom that leads through to a bunk bedroom. Completing the accommodation is an en-suite shower room that both of the bedrooms share. Outside there’s a delightful, south-facing enclosed garden with a path and seating areas, so why not light the barbecue and relax with a glass of wine, whilst reminiscing about the day you have had? Only a short drive away from this charming holiday home are the unspoilt beaches of Gurteen Bay and Dog’s Bay, or why not enjoy a drink and fresh seafood in one of the local restaurants? The area offers waking, cycling and climbing routes, along with the Ballyconneely links course, and within driving distance is the market town of Clifden and the city of Galway. Gable Cottage is a great base for your County Galway getaway.
