    “Absolutely beautiful cottage and fantastic location.”

    ...

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Collen and Raymond were fantastic hosts. The cottage itself had everything we needed and the location was also fantastic, just outside Oughterard where there are shops, restaurants and a great modern playpark for the kids. Also not too far from Galway city and a great base for exploring the wider county as we did. The best part for us though was the significantly sized wooded area in the grounds of the cottage. Our 4 year old daughter absolutely loved exploring this and it quickly became known as the enchanted forest.

    Thank you so much Seán for such high praise. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to meet your lovely family. Maybe on your next visit you'll be able to find the fairy trails and doors. Property Owner

The property

This stone-built, detached cottage is 1.5 miles from the town of Oughterard in popular County Galway.

The cottage is an excellent retreat, set in a wooded area, where you can relax and forget about the hustle and bustle back home.

Set all on the ground floor with stone walls and wooden beams, this cottage is traditional and cosy with a home-from-home feel.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook a lovely evening meal or prepare a picnic for the next day’s adventures.

In the evenings, curl up in front of the solid fuel stove in the sitting room and share stories of your day.

Outside, the patio is a lovely area to enjoy your breakfast in the fresh Irish air, and you can always take advantage of the sun with a BBQ while the children explore the surrounding woodland.

Be sure to take your time and spot the local wildlife!

The nearby town of Oughterard has everything you’ll need during your stay, with local shops and traditional pubs.

There is also a golf course within easy driving distance, and Lough Corrib is very close by for any fishing enthusiasts in the group.

For a day trip you can visit the city of Galway and experience the vibrant culture, or discover the stunning scenery of the Connemara National Park.

This cottage is a charming base, perfect for your Irish adventure.

About the location

OUGHTERARD, COUNTY GALWAY

Galway 17 miles.

The traditional village of Oughterard is found in the west of Ireland on the shores of Lough Corrib, at the start of the Connemara Mountain range and close to the famous Western Way. Home to the Oughterard 18-hole championship golf course, Derroura Mountain Bike Trail and Aughnanure Castle, there are lots of things to see and do, and located next to Lough Corrib, Oughterard is great for lovers of fishing. Just a short drive away in Roscahil is the pretty Brigit's Garden; with four main gardens and places to play, sit and relax, this is a great day out for all the family. Only 17 miles from Oughterard lies Galway City, where you can discover some of Ireland's long and varied history; visit Lynch's Castle, or trace the origin of the famous Claddagh Ring, which originated in a village near the shore of Galway Bay. A lovely lough-side village, all year round.

Note: Property sleeps 2 adults and 2 children
