    “The feeling of being home as soon as we walked in to Gable Cottage set us up for a week of pure relaxation.”

    Margaret was a very welcoming host. Although the cottage is on a corner entering the village, it was so peaceful. The garden was perfect for us and secure for our Golden Retriever. My wife enjoyed pottering around weeding and watering the plants. The garden is a lovely sun trap and a great place to dine al fresco. It's safe and secure. The facilities here are excellent.

    Margaret was a very welcoming host. Although the cottage is on a corner entering the village, it was so peaceful. The garden was perfect for us and secure for our Golden Retriever. My wife enjoyed pottering around weeding and watering the plants. The garden is a lovely sun trap and a great place to dine al fresco. It's safe and secure. The facilities here are excellent. Based here you are only a couple of minutes stroll to the harbour and a choice of bars and restaurants. A short drive will take you to stunning Gurteen Bay where the sand is white and the water is crystal clear and calm. We both decided that we shall definitely return.

The property

This lovely detached, single-storey cottage is situated in the village of Roundstone, County Galway.

Dating back to the 19th century, this property is suitable for a couple or family who wish to explore this excellent area of the Emerald Isle.

Inside this delightful cottage is a sitting room which boasts a vaulted ceiling that has been preserved from the original cottage, along with a cosy woodburning stove.

The kitchen with dining area is well-equipped, and there are two bedrooms, consisting of a large double bedroom that leads through to a bunk bedroom.

Completing the accommodation is an en-suite shower room that both of the bedrooms share.

Outside there’s a delightful, south-facing enclosed garden with a path and seating areas, so why not light the barbecue and relax with a glass of wine, whilst reminiscing about the day you have had?

Only a short drive away from this charming holiday home are the unspoilt beaches of Gurteen Bay and Dog’s Bay, or why not enjoy a drink and fresh seafood in one of the local restaurants?

The area offers waking, cycling and climbing routes, along with the Ballyconneely links course, and within driving distance is the market town of Clifden and the city of Galway.

Gable Cottage is a great base for your County Galway getaway.

About the location

ROUNDSTONE, COUNTY GALWAY

Clifden 14.5 miles; Connemara National Park 25 miles; Galway 48 miles.

Roundstone, in the Connemara region of County Galway, lies on the western arm of Bertraghboy Bay. The entrance to Roundstone harbour is marked by a large stone, like an upturned bath tub, which is known as seals rock (Chloch na Ron) as seals like to clamber up onto it and bask in the sunshine. The bay itself is also often referred to as Roundstone Haven. Roundstone offers pubs, restaurants, cafés, shops and a children’s playground, plus there is a traditional Irish night in the summer and a number of festivals which take place throughout the year. Roundstone is full of historical and geographical points of interest, including the bell tower of the Franciscan Monastery, now standing in the Michael Killeen Park, and the remains of a monument to St Brendan on Inishnee, a small island in Roundstone Bay. A five-minute drive away are Gurteen and Dog's Bay beaches, plus attractions in the area include horse riding, deep sea fishing, hill walking and cycling. Just eight miles from Roundstone is the Connemara Golf Club and further afield there is great scenery to enjoy either on foot, bicycle or in the car. The lively town of Clifden has lots of interesting things to see, while the Connemara National Park is just a little further away and the city of Galway can be reached in an hour’s drive.

Note: Max. 2 adults.
