    - Mr Mcguinness, June 2021

    Thank you for your feedback. The cottage is thoroughly steam cleaned and sanitised between stays so we were surprised by your comments. We are sorry the previous guests left a lot of rubbish but the bins are collected every other week in this area which is why we leave extra bags in case they are needed. Starlings do sometimes nest close by but we are not able to control this and most people travel to this area to appreciate the local wildlife in this beautiful area. The mattresses were changed on the beds last year and we choose those type of beds to match the old cottage style. The other furniture is all solid and is fit for purpose. I was not aware that the BBQ was advertised as I asked for this to be taken down last year due to Covid, however the shed is not for guest use and should not be used during bookings. The property listing advertises a garden and conservatory and not a patio. The icon refers to a garden or patio and this property has a garden. Thank you for letting us know about the radiators, we will get these checked. We feel that the property is very reasonably priced in comparison to other local properties, and had the guest contacted us to raise any issues or let my brother know when they saw him, we would have been more than happy to help. We hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

The property

Located on the popular Wild Atlantic Way, in the hamlet of Claddaghduff, lies a charming, detached cottage with stunning, panoramic sea views on County Galway’s coastline.

This comfortable Galway cottage is brilliantly located for a relaxing break for friends and families, with the shop, pub, and sandy beach situated just a five minute walk away so you can leave your car parked at the cottage and completely unwind!

There are five bedrooms in this Claddaghduff cottage, three double rooms on the ground floor, and two family rooms upstairs each housing a king-size double and a single bed.

One of the ground floor bedrooms has its own en-suite facilities and there are also two family-sized bathrooms, one of which is also located on the ground floor.

There is a well-equipped kitchen, a dining room, and a sitting room with a cosy open fire, perfect for retiring by after a day exploring this glorious corner of Ireland.

Settle down with a good book and a glass of wine in the conservatory enjoying spectacular seascapes, and in the summer, step out into the garden, a large, fabulous lawn where the kids can play while you keep an eye on them and soak up the sunshine.

Uncover a treasure trove of attractions from the comfort of this Claddaghduff cottage, from long, romantic walks on the beach, to chasing the luck of the Irish with fun-filled days at the Omey Races!

Keen fisherman will most certainly want to visit Couhoor Lake, and the seaside village of Cleggan, with its delicious seafood restaurants and trips to Inishbofin Island, is just an easy drive away from this Claddaghduff cottage.

Visit Clifden, a delightful market town, where you can peruse a marvellous selection of unique boutique and independent shops followed by a pint of the black stuff in one of its lively pubs, or a day at the annual Connemara pony show!

Pack your walking boots or climb in the saddle, either way with your camera, and discover the breathtaking mountain landscapes of the Connemara National Park.

On lazy afternoons, pay a visit to beautiful Kylemore Abbey and stroll around its tranquil Victorian walled gardens, or venture to Galway City and spend the day shopping and drinking with many pubs showcasing live traditional folk music!
