    It had 3 shower / bathrooms which was great for our party of 7. Super, big , enclosed garden for the dogs. The house was situated right in the beautiful village of Clonbur and next door to the house was the proprietor's hotel which provided us with entertainment and food. Mr Lynch who owned both house and hotel was very friendly and helpful with any questions about the house. His staff were all very welcoming and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend this house as it was very comfortable, close to amenities and a super base for sightseeing around galway. Great holiday.

The property

A beautiful detached cottage located on a quiet estate close to the centre of Clonbur, Connemara, County Galway.

Offering quality accommodation, this cottage in Clonbur is furnished to a high standard throughout and will delight any member in a group of friends or family.

This Clonbur cottage features five spacious bedrooms including a twin room on the ground floor making it suitable for a variety of holidaymakers.

Guests will love relaxing in the cosy sitting room whilst the roaring fire provides a cosy environment, and the quaint garden and patio area also offer a perfect place to unwind on fine days whilst the children play in safety.

The village of Clonbur offers many shops and pubs where a warm and friendly welcome is assured; relax with a pint of the black stuff before enjoying some delicious local food, and round the evening off with a session of traditional Irish music!

Lough Mask and Lough Corrib lie either side of this delightful village and provide superb fishing facilities, and boat and rod hire are available locally.

About the location


Cong 3.5 miles; Galway City 29.5 miles.

The traditional village of Clonbur is located between Lough Mask and Lough Corrib in County Galway. Offering a small selection of shops and pubs, it retains a distinctly Irish feel with its own unique character and charm. There are a number of places of interest to the visitor in the surrounding area, including Ross Hill Abbey, Ballykine Castle and Lough Coolin. For walkers and hikers, the imposing Mount Gable offers one of Ireland’s most scenic mountain walks, with the trail beginning less than 2 miles from Clonbur. The nearby village of Cong is well worth a visit and is famed as the setting for the John Wayne movie, ‘The Quiet Man’. It is also home to Ashford Castle with its magnificent architecture, fine dining and sprawling golf course. Loughs Corrib and Mask are world-renowned for trout and salmon fishing and boats and guides are available locally. Clonbur makes an ideal base for exploring other attractions in the area such as Galway City, the Connemara National Park and Clew Bay to the north.
