This charming self-catering cottage for two is situated on one-half acres on the same property as the owner's residence. You will enjoy your privacy in this lovely cottage which has been rated by the Guardian Newspaper as one of the special places to stay in Ireland.

Amelia's guidebook titled "" is a compelling read. Amelia, a native of Connemara, presents seven carefully selected journeys through the landscape of Connemara that are dear to her heart and shares them with us in this beautiful book. The seven journeys represent one journey for each day of the week. "The idea for my guidebook is that the readers get insights into the fascinating people who lived in Connemara, visit my favourite off-the-beaten track gems that the average tourist never sees, and to suggest places where you can enjoy afternoon tea, a creamy pint or a picnic on one of the many sandy beaches dotted along the coast."

What was once an isolated landscape ravaged by poverty has now become the destination for nature-lovers, mountain-climbers and other sports enthusiasts alike. Excellent restaurants are in abundance, and the choice of accommodation ranges from simple bed-and-breakfasts to world-renowned luxury castles.

Amelia Joyce, the owner of this luxury property, loves all things Italian. Foreign accents, notably Italian and Mexican, bestow warmth to this charming lakeside retreat.

Rough plastered walls and a rich palette dictated by oriental rugs, show off works of art, pottery and ceramics collected from around the world.

The big sitting room has sink-in armchairs before a lovely turf fire. A selection of books to choose from. In the generous bedroom, the bed linen is luxuriously Italian. French doors and windows open to garden vistas and the waters of Lough Corrib.
