About the property

Milltown 6 miles.

Situated amongst the rich rural countryside of County Mayo by the owner’s dry stock farm, just across the border from the village of Milltown in County Galway, is this immaculate, detached farmhouse.

Tastefully renovated from its previous state, providing a wonderful holiday home for families or groups of friends wishing to spend time together, this property offers comfort and quality.

The farmhouse comprises a well-equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs, and a spacious dining room complete with a woodburning stove for those chilly evenings in with your loved ones.

The cosy sitting room provides a tranquil space to kick back and relax with a good book by the open fire, and on the first floor, four delightful bedrooms complete the accommodation, where a good night’s sleep is sure to be had.

The cottage is surrounded by quiet country roads and lanes perfect for walking or cycling, while two miles away the local pub in Foxhall hosts music and dancing every Saturday night.

Ballyglass village, less than a mile away, has two local shops where you can pick up bits and bobs during your stay.

The nearby village of Milltown actually lies across the border line from the cottage in the county of Galway, on the main road to Galway City.

A community of very proud residents, Milltown is home to a variety of amenities, including a shop, a restaurant and a pub.

Ballindine boasts three local pubs, one of which serves bar snacks and dinners, plus a local restaurant and shops, and a short drive takes you to Claremorris, where you can enjoy a lovely walk around Clare Lake.

Within easy reach are the stunning sights of Connemara, Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, while the cobbled streets and traditional pubs of Galway City are only 30 miles away, where you can experience culture and tradition at its finest.

Golf courses can be found at Ballinrobe and Claremorris, or if you fancy something a little bit different, why not spend the day at Ballinrobe Races!

Other attractions include Mayo Abbey, the harbour town of Westport and Ashford Castle in the historic village of Cong.

A delightful family cottage in rural Ireland, to be enjoyed all year long!

About the location


Tuam 8 miles; Ballindine 5.5 miles; Ballinrobe 11 miles; Galway 30 miles; Clifden 60 miles.

The pretty village of Milltown is located 30 miles north of Galway City, in County Galway. The locals take great pride in the presentation of their village, and it has won the prestigious 'Tidy Towns' award 8 years running from 1996 - 2003. The village has a wonderful riverside walk, a children's playground, tennis courts and a picnic area. For eating, drinking, and local Irish music, there are fine local establishments offering great hospitality and a warm welcome. Two majestic lakes; Lough Mask and Lough Corrib are located an easy drive away, perfect for angling and boating, and both the pretty village of Cong, and Ashford Castle are located directly between these two lakes. Take a day trip to the Connemara National Park, with glassy lakes and rugged mountains, or take a short boat ride to the Aran Islands, home of the Aran sweater. A lovely location with something to suit all tastes.
