  • “This is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in in 30 odd years of renting holiday cottages in Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales.”

    The hosts are lovely and very welcoming. The house itself has everything you could want and is beautifully presented. A big bonus is the swimming pool, hot tub and games room and a proper television that works and has Sky!! We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a fantastic relaxing holiday but within easy reach of lots of tourist destinations.

About the location

DUNMORE, COUNTY GALWAY

Tuam 10 miles; Galway 30 miles.

Dunmore town lies 10 miles northeast of Tuam, boasting an original fort and a stone castle whose four storeys, towers and wide windows date back to the early 17th century. On the Eastern side of the town stand the impressive ruins of an Augustian Abbey. The town’s Demesne Golf Club is a 9 hole parkland course designed by highly respected golf course architect, Eddie Hackett. The Dunmore Festival is held annually in late July - early August, when the town hosts pub events, children's fancy dress, pavement art, walking, bicycle and car treasure hunts, so there's plenty of fun for all the family! The nearby town of Tuam is best known as a centre of church affairs, and has two cathedrals. The area has lots to offer, from beautiful countryside to great pubs with traditional music and restaurants offering varied types of cuisine. You are also ideally placed for touring Galway and Mayo. Spectacular sunsets are a feature here, and nature lovers will enjoy birdwatching and walking. The cosmopolitan delights of Galway City are 30 miles away, and with Connemara and Lough Mask offering scenic days out, your stay here can encompass all that Ireland has to offer.
