  • "I really enjoyed my stay."

    House had all I needed and loved having the fire. Location is wonderful and looking out onto great scenery of a lake and distant Galway mountains and was a quiet area/break. Little phone signal but that suited me. Host was very helpful and friendly.

  • "Seán, the owner is very welcoming and helpful."

    He had kindly left some supplies including tea, coffee, milk and bread etc for us, much appreciated after our long drive! It's a very comfortable house in the most beautiful Gaeltacht area and perfect for a family holiday. My children spent their days playing in the fields and swimming in the sea (a drive away at the beautiful Trá an Dóilín beach) and we enjoyed a few walks up the bóithrín that the house is on. We had quite mixed weather - the nice few days helped but this area is beautiful even in the rain. The view from the house is spectacular. The children are already asking when we can go back and we look forward to returning again in the future.

    Visited many and varied places all withing striking distance. A pleasure to meet owner Sean.

  • "Booked this house for my mom's 60th birthday, we were blown away by the property and it really exceeded our expectations."

    Beautiful location, very calm and peaceful, the house itself was huge and immaculately clean. Everything was provided, the owner was a lovely man who dropped off the keys and told us about the local area. Absolutely amazing price for a wonderful bank holiday weekend away. We would definitely return.

The property

Travel west along the coast road from Galway City into the Connemara heartland and arrive at Lettermore village.

The village is located on an island of similar name and approached by a series of causeways or bridges that link a number of in-shore islands.

Just outside the village, perched high on an elevated site with outstanding views of Connemara landscape, you'll discover Lakeview.

This is a comfortable cottage, boasting 4 bedrooms, a nice fully fitted kitchen with dining area and a comfortable sitting room with majestic views over adjoining lakes and countryside.

The cottage has been lovingly decorated to provide you with a relaxing break and offers a wonderful touring base for this most idyllic location.

Step outside the cottage, stone walls, dramatic landscape, sea breezes, rocky outcrops, a true reflection of Connemara.

The area abounds with sea inlets and small quiet beaches.

Spend some time at The Connemara National Park nearby with its many treks and trails.

Take the ferry at nearby Rossaveal to the three Aran Islands, all inhabited, and savour the culture and traditions of island life.

Travel further west to the bustling town of Clifden, an oasis in the west, and enjoy its many pubs, cafes and restaurants.

The city Of Galway is a must for all visitors to the area, with many activities for everyone, with many festivals and fun events during the season.

Book your Connemara adventure at Lakeview, and return home feeling refreshed and relaxed.

About the location


Clifden 40 miles; Galway 31 miles.

The pretty village of Lettermore is located on a small island in the south west corner of County Galway, on the Wild Atlantic Way by Bord Failte, connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway. The village is home to a welcoming Irish pub, a small convenience store and traditional butcher's store, and is also located in an area where the Irish language is still widely spoken, adding to the cultural experience. Offering unrivalled beauty and appeal, this is a great base from which to enjoy a wide range of exciting activities. There are numerous coves, beaches and inlets to explore nearby, and great opportunities for sailing, fishing and scuba diving. The fabulous Connemara National Park is waiting to be discovered only a short drive away, and no trip to this part of the world would be complete without a day trip to the majestic Aran Islands, located just off the coast in Galway Bay. Perfect for visitors of all ages and interests at any time of the year.
