The property

Travel west along the coast road from Galway City into the Connemara heartland and arrive at Lettermore village. The village is located on an island of similar name and approached by a series of causeways or bridges that link a number of in-shore islands. Just outside the village, perched high on an elevated site with outstanding views of Connemara landscape, you'll discover Lakeview. This is a comfortable cottage, boasting 4 bedrooms, a nice fully fitted kitchen with dining area and a comfortable sitting room with majestic views over adjoining lakes and countryside. The cottage has been lovingly decorated to provide you with a relaxing break and offers a wonderful touring base for this most idyllic location. Step outside the cottage, stone walls, dramatic landscape, sea breezes, rocky outcrops, a true reflection of Connemara. The area abounds with sea inlets and small quiet beaches. Spend some time at The Connemara National Park nearby with its many treks and trails. Take the ferry at nearby Rossaveal to the three Aran Islands, all inhabited, and savour the culture and traditions of island life. Travel further west to the bustling town of Clifden, an oasis in the west, and enjoy its many pubs, cafes and restaurants. The city Of Galway is a must for all visitors to the area, with many activities for everyone, with many festivals and fun events during the season. Book your Connemara adventure at Lakeview, and return home feeling refreshed and relaxed.

The pretty village of Lettermore is located on a small island in the south west corner of County Galway, on the Wild Atlantic Way by Bord Failte, connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway. The village is home to a welcoming Irish pub, a small convenience store and traditional butcher's store, and is also located in an area where the Irish language is still widely spoken, adding to the cultural experience. Offering unrivalled beauty and appeal, this is a great base from which to enjoy a wide range of exciting activities. There are numerous coves, beaches and inlets to explore nearby, and great opportunities for sailing, fishing and scuba diving. The fabulous Connemara National Park is waiting to be discovered only a short drive away, and no trip to this part of the world would be complete without a day trip to the majestic Aran Islands, located just off the coast in Galway Bay. Perfect for visitors of all ages and interests at any time of the year.
