  • "I had a fabulous stay at this cosy cottage."

    Hilda kindly had a roaring fire lit for me prior to my arrival which was most welcome on a cold January evening and ample fuel available for the duration of my visit. The cottage was spotlessly clean throughout and anything I needed was at hand including some tasty cookies and scones on arrival. Perfect base to tour around Connemara and check out the beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended.

  • "We spent a lovely week despite the rainy days."

    The place is a very well-renovated old house. Thanks to the owners to preserve this heritage. The views from the house are fantastic, and the fireplace makes the interior very relaxing. It was our first trip to Ireland and we really enjoyed it. Lakes, mountains, rivers, agricultural landscapes, the area is really rich for nature lovers. And on top of that, the owners are very kind. We highly recommend the place.

    Within easy reach of Cong (The location for The Quiet Man John Wayne movie) Galway City, Satlhill and Spiddal with white sand beaches and gentle strolls on the prom. If sea fishing is your thing a trip with Galway Bay Angling and skipper Kevin is a must. If you like a but of Perch, Pike or Brown Trout then there are plenty of shore marks on Maske and Corrib aling with boat hire. This cottage is well worth visiting and tge owners are very helpful.

The property

Clonbur 4 miles.

Tigh Mhicheal Phaidin, Irish for 'Michael Patrick's Cottage', is a beautiful abode, ideally positioned for a holiday with family or friends to this scenic area of Ireland on an action-packed adventure.

Internally, this property offers a traditionally-styled and homely base, while outside boasts an idyllic countryside backdrop to any social occasion; there's no better base from which to explore County Galway and beyond.

Enter the snug sitting room and light up the woodburning stove to bring a welcoming warmth to the room, while the white plastered walls and timbered ceilings offer traditional touches.

Adjacent to the sitting room, you can find the quaint kitchen/diner, with stylish, white units and worktops bringing a touch of elegance; the rest of the room echoes the traditional aura of the cottage, as well as making a lovely spot to serve up all your family-favourite meals, to be enjoyed around the dining table.

At the end of each day, retreat to the three wonderful bedrooms to rest your head; on the ground floor you can find a modest double bed, while up on the narrow staircase tucked beneath the eaves you can find both a double and a twin room, both featuring velux windows, giving an airy and spacious feel to each room.

Begin your day freshening up in the stylish shower room, before sitting out in the gravelled garden and soaking up the magnificent surroundings of mountains and Lough Mask, being sure to explore the scenery up close on a walk at some point during your stay.

For all of your local amenities, visit Clonbur, a traditional Irish village offering a modest selection of shops and pubs, while its unique character welcomes guests at any time of year; the nearby town of Ballinrobe boasts a wider selection of amenities to while away the hours.

Sitting between the beauty of both Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, you can find ample fishing opportunities at your doorstep, they're famous for their trout and salmon, in particular.

For an adventure further afield, be sure to visit Cong, which provided the setting for the John Wayne film, 'The Quiet Man', with a replica of the cottage that you can visit, this scenic village is also home to the historic Ashford Castle and a fantastic golf course.

Visit Leenaun to find where the Atlantic Ocean cuts between the mountains and village, with boat trips available so you can explore the waters up close, or embark on a journey to either Westport or the oasis of Clifton for an unforgettable experience for all the family.
