The property

Lettermore 2.9 miles.

Nestled close to the coast on Gorumna Island in Deirin Darach near Lettermore, County Galway is Barbara’s Cottage.

This wonderful, white-washed, dormer bungalow welcomes families or friends keen to explore and enjoy the traditional and beautiful area of Galway, where Irish is still widely spoken and wonderful scenery awaits you at every bend in the road; it also benefits from ground-floor bedrooms and stunning views of sea inlets.

Cross the threshold into the heart of the home where you can find the sitting room with a crackling open fire, the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring or to cosy up in front of as the sea winds whistle outside.

Later, head into the kitchen/diner to rustle up a hearty meal that the whole family can enjoy at the dining table or alfresco on the private deck which boasts unbeatable views over the wild landscape to the sea.

When the evening draws to a close, wash off the day’s adventure in either the bathroom on the ground floor or first floor before sloping off to sleep in either of the double bedrooms, the ground-floor twin or the single completing the first floor.

Find all your amenities in the village of Lettermore which houses a convenience store and local pub before exploring the wild coastline which comprises both sandy and rocky beaches.

Connemara National Park is slightly further afield but offers outdoor enthusiasts a plethora of activities, and 7000 acres of mountains, bogs and grasslands which have walking and hiking trails woven throughout; the perfect place to admire the wild beauty of Ireland.

Make unforgettable memories on the Irish coast at Barbara’s Cottage!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €450.

About the location


Clifden 40 miles; Galway 31 miles.

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.
