Offering guests stunning countryside views at its exterior and a stylish, traditional interior, this cottage on the outskirts of Cong is a brilliant holiday home from which to create everlasting memories with your loved ones at any time of year.

Lies between the shores of Lough Corrib and Lough Mask, which are good fishing lakes, available from February onwards and full of salmon, trout and pike for your enjoyment.

Step inside the porch way and settle down your belongings before entering into the kitchen/diner where a woodburning stove awaits you to warm the room as you sit together at the dining table to enjoy your home-cooked meals.

In this room you can find all the essential appliances encompassed by cream hues and wooden worktops, creating a traditional farmhouse feel.

Carry your conversions through to the sitting room and light up the open fire before taking a seat in one of the characterful red sofas, with a Smart TV and a snug environment, it makes the perfect place to end your evenings.

At the end of a fun-filled day, seek comfort in one of four bedrooms; the ground floor benefits from a homely double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, perfect for the grandparents of the group, or move up to the first floor to be greeted by two further double bedrooms and a twin room, all boasting brilliantly bright feature walls and a snug place to rest your head after your adventures.

Outside, the property presents a large gravelled area, with miles of uninterrupted countryside giving you and your loved ones a beautiful backdrop for when you enjoy alfresco dining in the form of a barbecue in the summer months.

The nearby village of Cong plays host to a good range of amenities, including the simplicities of a shop, gastro pub, coffee shop, restaurants and more, as well as its own museum based on the famous film of The Quiet Man.

Explore the historic abbey of the village.

Close by you can also find Ashford Castle, known to be the most dramatic castle in Ireland, where you will also be greeted by an 18-hole golf course, or embark on a day trip to the picturesque Kylemore Abbey with its Victorian walled gardens and a beautiful tea room, it's a true marvel to be seen.
