The Property

A welcoming detached cottage located in the hamlet of Maam, just 15 miles from the wonderful Connemara National Park, County Galway. Boasting stunning views across the Bealanabrack River to the mountains beyond, this single-storey Maam cottage has been renovated to a modern style to provide spacious and cosy accommodation, perfect for families and friends. The striking chimney breast is inspired by an American design and this Maam cottage also features a large window from the sitting room allowing you to make the most of the picturesque vistas. The four comfortable bedrooms in this cottage in Maam won’t fail to provide a good night’s sleep after a long day exploring the surrounding countryside, and there is also a warming multi-fuel stove in the sitting room. The location of this Galway cottage is superb with so many activities and attractions within easy reach. The numerous walking and hiking trails reveal landscapes and views that will take your breath away. Take a boat trip on Killary Fjord or to Inishboffin Island, visit the impressive Kylemore Abbey, or soak up the atmosphere in the lively market town of Clifden with its variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. Furthermore the coastline in Connemara is nothing short of spectacular with jagged shores, sprawling sands and hidden coves many of which offer peace and solitude with just the sound of the sea for company. There are also ample fishing opportunities on the vast Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, and day trip to Galway City, with its cosmopolitan nightlife and iconic architecture is a must! All before returning to the comfort of your inviting Maam cottage, a delightful base at any time of year.
