    “People were lovely, cottage very well presented, only down side was the pub down the road although close walking distance as described is run by the local farmer so can't always rely on the pub being open & not much atmospher.”

The property

This comfortable detached stone cottage is situated in the townland of Ballinahown, just under three miles from the village of Rossaveel in the heart of Connemara, County Galway.

Dating back to the 1900’s this delightful cottage was once a knitting factory and it has been lovingly converted to retain many of the original features including the fireplace and the high ceilings.

Decorated and furnished in a traditional manner, this lovely cottage boasts three comfy bedrooms where you are ensured a good night’s sleep.

The living and dining area are light and spacious and provide an ideal place to share sociable evenings together in front of the warming fire, whilst the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare delicious meals.

Outside there is a front lawned garden with furniture and beautiful views towards Galway Bay in the distance, perfect for relaxing with a cool drink.

The cottage is located close to the village amenities of Rossaveel.

The Connemara region is famed for its scenic beauty with breathtaking coastlines, sandy beaches and rustic traditional cottages and guests will love the peace and tranquillity of the area.

The city of Galway is within easy reach with its lively pubs, art and culture and traditional Irish music, as well as its large selection of eateries.

The Connemara National Park and Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way beckon to the outdoor enthusiast and are well worth a visit.

Also within easy reach are the Aran Islands, The Burren and the Cliffs of Moher.

This charming cottage provides the perfect base to experience all that Ireland has to offer.
