    “Perfect!”
    This was the perfect base for a week! The house was so spacious and had everything we needed. The location was ideal for the Connemara area but also for a trip to Galway city. The house and surrounding area was peaceful and there is a fully enclosed garden giving reassurance that the dogs were safe. Within walking distance there is a lovely restaurant and bar. The owner Michael was helpful and friendly and I would probably book here again as I loved the area so much

The property

Carna 3.7 miles.

A lovely detached cottage situated on a quiet estate near the village of Carna, within reach of the spectacular Connemara National Park in County Galway.

Situated on the renowned Wild Atlantic Way, this welcoming cottage provides all that a holidaymaker needs for a memorable time in this special region of the Emerald Isle.

The spacious living area features wooden floors and a lovely brick fireplace where you can set a roaring blaze to the hearth to help you unwind.

There are four comfortable bedrooms in this cottage, two on the ground floor, and you'll be sure to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep and awake refreshed and ready to discover all the beauty that surrounds you.

Outside is a large lawned garden to the rear, along with a shared lawn to the front affording far-reaching views to the mountains beyond.

The Connemara National Park is one of Ireland’s more precious treasures.

The landscapes are wild and rugged with soaring peaks and sweeping valleys punctuated by scattered settlements where no doubt you’ll find a friendly welcome in a thatched pub.

Grab your walking boots and trek one of the many trails that showcase this stunning location, or why not take to horseback for an alternative perspective?

Just a short distance from your cottage is the coastline, where the untamed Atlantic meets jagged rocks and unspoilt sands to create unforgettable imagery; don’t forget the camera!

The market town of Clifden, along with Kylemore Abbey, the Aran Islands and of course, the vibrant city of Galway are all within easy reach and worthy of a visit.

A trip that you will treasure forever awaits at this cottage!

About the location

CARNA, COUNTY GALWAY

Clifden 23 miles; Galway 49 miles.

The small, quiet village of Carna in the heart of the Irish-speaking area of Connemara Gaeltacht, is set on the shores of Galway Bay, overlooking Galway Harbour, in the scenic region of Connemara. Carna is noted for its traditional Irish music and singing, and music sessions are held weekly in the local pubs and hotel. For walkers, runners, cyclists and hillwalkers, the area provides opportunities unrivalled for their tranquillity and scenery. The quiet roads leading to Mweenish Island and the local coves are ideal for family cycling. Lying off the coast of Carna is St. MacDara's Island, a site of pilgrimage and mass held on 16th July each year. The famous sailing crafts, the 'Galway Hookers' were made in Carna, as well as a small boat called the Currach, and the area is well known for the skilled boat-makers who crafted them. There are still some working examples of the 'Galway Hooker' moored at Mweenish Island and Cashel Bay and 'hooker' regattas are held throughout July and August. It is also possible to book a day trip on a local 'hooker'. There is great fishing in the area with many working piers providing an ideal place for lobster, crab and mackerel fishing, while Connemara National Park, home to the famous Connemara Pony and Kylemore Abbey are both within easy reach, providing great days out for all the family.
