    “Delia is a lovely host, providing us with an exceptionally warm welcome and very detailed information about the house.”

    No photographs can do the islands of Ceantar na nOileán justice and in turn, Delias Lake House. The house is rustic but with all modcons and the location is beautifully scenic. The livingroom is very cozy, with a massive fireplace the main focal point. Some very lovely decorative touches throughout the house. Taking the boat on the lake was great craic, and under the Autumn sun just idyllic. Walkers have lots of options, with just one "main" road as an artery running through the island there is a large network of laneways and trails to navigate without the worry of traffic. For starters I would recommend the loop around the lake, which can be extended by walking down to the rugged shoreline. Tigh Lee's pub is a short stroll away and highly recommended for a few(too many) pints and conversation with the incredibly friendly locals. If you are looking for some local seafood you should ask around for contact numbers for local fishermen, we managed to purchase a huge amount of freshly caught shellfish for a fraction of the cost you would pay at market value. If you want to visit a truly unique corner of Connemara I cant recommend this property enough. Largely untouched by tourism with a purity of Gaelic culture little present elsewhere in Ireland but still in reach of the sights of North Connemara. Thank you Delia for the opportunity for outsiders to enjoy this region from such a beautiful home.

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.
