  • Mr Drew

    “Delia is a lovely host, providing us with an exceptionally warm welcome and very detailed information about the house.”


    No photographs can do the islands of Ceantar na nOileán justice and in turn, Delias Lake House. The house is rustic but with all modcons and the location is beautifully scenic. The livingroom is very cozy, with a massive fireplace the main focal point. Some very lovely decorative touches throughout the house. Taking the boat on the lake was great craic, and under the Autumn sun just idyllic. Walkers have lots of options, with just one "main" road as an artery running through the island there is a large network of laneways and trails to navigate without the worry of traffic. For starters I would recommend the loop around the lake, which can be extended by walking down to the rugged shoreline. Tigh Lee's pub is a short stroll away and highly recommended for a few(too many) pints and conversation with the incredibly friendly locals. If you are looking for some local seafood you should ask around for contact numbers for local fishermen, we managed to purchase a huge amount of freshly caught shellfish for a fraction of the cost you would pay at market value. If you want to visit a truly unique corner of Connemara I cant recommend this property enough. Largely untouched by tourism with a purity of Gaelic culture little present elsewhere in Ireland but still in reach of the sights of North Connemara. Thank you Delia for the opportunity for outsiders to enjoy this region from such a beautiful home.

The property

This traditional, detached cottage dates back over 200 years, and is situated in a lakeside location, with stunning, uninterrupted views over the lake and sea beyond, on the island of Lettermullen in the Connemara region of County Galway.

Cosy and comfortable, this Lettermullen cottage is furnished and decorated in a traditional style, providing a quaint, welcoming home-from-home for families or friends.

The location of this Lettermullen cottage makes it ideal for birdwatchers and artists alike, and with use of the owner's boat, launched from the pier, this Lettermullen cottage is also perfect for a day on the lake, or for enjoying a spot of fishing, with brown trout fishing available on the lake or deep sea fishing further out.

There are many lovely beaches on the island, so you could spend a day at one of these, or drive along the coast road to bustling Galway city, knowing that at the end of the day, you can easily return to the peace and tranquillity of your Lettermullen cottage.
