    “Beautiful Cottage”
    Perfectly situated cottage just 3 miles north of Dunmore, County Galway. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms were the perfect set up for three adults. We were visiting family in the area so this was a great place to stay. The central kitchen was cozy and warm although there is another sitting room if someone would like some quiet time. Washer and dryer made it very convenient to keep packed clothing clean.
