The property

This is a delightful, detached cottage, dating back over 200 years, situated on the shores of a lake, on the island of Lettermullen, County Galway. This Lettermullen cottage is a traditional Irish holiday home, but its location on the lakeside gives it something special. Use of the owner's boat means guests can launch from the pier and enjoy long lazy days on the lake, fishing for brown trout, relaxing or picnicking, making the most of the peaceful, tranquil setting and clean, fresh air. Artists and birdwatchers can make the most of the beautiful landscapes and scenery surrounding this Lettermullen cottage, while walkers can discover hidden Connemara when exploring the designated walkways of this traditional western isle, or take a trip on the coast road, through the other islands out in this area, immersing yourself in Irish speaking communities with great Failte for visitors. No matter how you choose to spend your days, you can guarantee that on your return to your Lettermullen cottage you will be greeted with its cosy interior, warming open fire and delightful cottage charm. The perfect base for a lakeside getaway.
