The property

This traditional, mostly single-storey Connemara cottage is just a few minutes' walk to the sea and just 10 minutes' walk to the pub in Rosmuc, in the heart of Connemara, County Galway. This Connemara cottage dates back to the 1800s, and has been tastefully renovated and modernised to combine tradition, character and contemporary features including the stable-type door, stone floors, butler sink and cosy woodburner, making for a great Connemara cottage. Surrounded by 25 acres of rugged Galway countryside, this Connemara cottage boasts rural views from all aspects, so sitting in the garden to enjoy the views is a must, and whether it's a sunny summer's day, balmy spring morning or blustery autumn afternoon, the beautiful landscape will have a visual treat in store for you. If you fancy a walk, perhaps traverse the numerous acres and dip your toes in the cooling sea water and feel its chill lap at your feet, instantly cooling you down on a hot day. There is plenty to see and do right from the doorstep of this Connemara cottage, if you can tear your eyes away from the beautiful view for long enough.
