The cottages have been furnished to provide quality and comfort during your stay. A choice of 2 and 3 bedrooms cottages are available, with a fully fitted kitchen and open plan living with open fires. These cosy rural cottages lead down to a private jetty, situated in a sheltered cove on mighty Lough Mask.
