This charming cottage dates back to 1800 and has been carefully refurbished to offer the visitor the convenience of 21st Century living, whilst retaining its original character. The well-equipped bright kitchen has a generous dining area and is on semi-open plan with the welcoming sitting room with its oil burner, which gives the room a cosy feel. There are three bedrooms, and they are tastefully decorated in keeping with the cottage with warm natural materials. The shower room is on the ground floor, and outside there is a fabulous decking area with furniture, perfect to sit and watch the world go by, and a large lawn with plenty of space for family games. This is a superb property for a relaxing holiday in this area.
The fishing village of Kilkieran is on the dramatic coastline in County Galway. It features a stone pier and from here visitors can watch the fishermen as they process the day's salmon and seaweed. There are unspoiled beaches just a short drive away, as well as the beautiful National Park of Connemara and the magnificent Connemara Loop. There are many lakes in the area so it is an angler's paradise, and if fishing is not your thing then there are plenty of walking opportunities to take in the glorious scenery. A little further away are the Aran Islands, and a boat trip across to the islands can give you a taste of traditional Irish life. This area is the perfect place to relax and escape for a while.
Towering cliffs stand next to vast stretches of golden sand, whilst vast mountain ranges cradle cool, low-lying lakes. The Galway region epitomises the term ‘great outdoors'; with fantastic walking and cycling and exhilarating water sports.
