    “What an amazing home from home.”

    The view was incredible and the beach a short walk away. Everything was catered for and a great welcome. Great to relax and enjoy out time away. Highly recommend this home.

Enjoying a superb location on the Wild Atlantic Way, and just moment’s away from the beach, The Cottage is a wonderful dwelling for a group or family of six seeking their next Irish escape.

Off-road parking and a delightful front garden with outdoor seating greets you on arrival, a perfect spot for savouring your morning coffee with exceptional sea and countryside views.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can look forward to evening’s spent relaxing with your loved ones in front of the crackling woodburning stove, as your favourite show plays out on the Smart TV.
