  • "The house was fantastic, fabulous views over the bay."

    A lovely welcome with fresh scones and fires lit, coil nt be nicer. Beautiful wild location which as an artist I really appreciated and Cepta pointed out all the places she thought would interest me and she was spot on!! The local shop was a treasure with everything you would need and the owner speaking Irish, was a treat, despite my Irish being very rusty!! I thoroughly enjoyed the week and will return again.

  • "Prague house is simply outstanding!"

    It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The photos do not do the house justice! Cepta and Micheal were lovely hosts:welcoming, friendly and helpful in every way. The area was fantastic too. So much to do- we will have to return to do everything we wanted. We strongly recommend a day cycling on inis Oirr and climbing Diamond Hill. We could not recommend this house highly enough.

  • "The Prague House is more than a person could hope for when booking a holiday home - we spent two weeks and would have been happy to extend our stay for much longer."

    The listing accurately represents the home, but it is so much more! Cepta and Micheal have beautifully updated this family home, retaining the historic integrity while adding every modern convenience a person could need while on vacation. We cannot say enough positive things about the Prague House and highly recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect base from which to experience all that Connemara has to offer!

  • "The cottage was beautiful, in an amazing location and was spotlessly clean."

    The property owner, Cepta, has created a true 'home from home', providing guests with every conceivable comfort. The property, combined with Cepta's warm welcome and local knowledge, ensured we had a superb holiday. Thank you.

  • "The cottage is beautiful and much better than expected."

    Especially when you have look at Google-earth, the first impession is not that good. The environment is beautiful, only walking is a bit of a problem: no public footpathes . There's no detailled map of the surroundings in the cottage. You might advice future visitors to buy one at the Internet, because none of the local shops got one. To get around decently you need one. We had a excellent holliday!! Beste Regards Bert Bannink

  • "The pictures of the cottage do not do it justice."

    It is beautiful, quiet and much larger than we thought. We were a group of six people - three generations of of our family. There were three large bedrooms and three baths. We had plenty of living space and privacy. Despite the remote feeling of the cottage, there is a grocery store and a butcher in easy walking distance. The small village has a Post office, gas station and pub. Everything that we could possibly need was thought of by the owner, Cepta Stevens. The garden is large and full of flowers. Our grandchildren played in the garden everyday. There are ponies across the road that are so gentle and love to be feed carrots and apples. We loved our week at Prague House.

  • "The house was absolutely beautiful and clean."

    The views from every window were spectacular. Our house hosts, Cepta and Michael were so kind and welcoming as well. My family had a wonderful holiday that created very happy memories. The only thing that I might add to the house would be a laundry basket and more clothes pins to carry out laundry to hang outside.

  • "Prague House in Lettermore is breathtaking!"

    The views are spectacular, the people in the area are so welcoming and Prague House, or Ti Cepta to the locals, is exceptional!! It has everything we could ever need, is warm and inviting and equipped to the fullest. The ponies in the neighbouring field gallop to meet us, (maybe from the rustling of the carrot bag) and Michael and Cepta have ensured everything is perfect...a home away from home!!

    Spotlessly clean. We were met by Sumpta, the owner who was so welcoming and friendly. She had lots to tell us about the area, she even rang halfway through the week to check we were ok. *****

    We had a great week here and hope to come back one day. Many thanks to Cepta for the scones and warm welcome. The shop at the bottom of the road stocks everything and has long opening hours so no need to worry about groceries.

About the location

LETTERMORE, COUNTY GALWAY

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.
