We had the most incredible time at this little cottage. Liam was helpful and friendly, and very responsive to our needs. The cottage itself was just a dream. Close enough to Clifden, Galway, The Bens, and even the Aran Islands that we were never at a loss for things to do, it was also perfect for just laying around and enjoying a picnic in the backyard, watching the sheep by the brook and taking in the incredible view. To top it all off, it was also spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. You won't be disappointed with this rental.

Thank you Olivia, and brand new ' Hubby 'for your very welcome...
Getting around
This catchment area is just crying out for walkers, cyclists, mountaineers, hill walkers, fishermen, golfers, kayakers, and those who wish to explore.
It's a fantastic idea to cycle... now dont be scared off, there are standard and electrical bicycles for hire in Clifden complete with all the safety equipment. Ditch the car for a full week, get healthy and enjoy !!
Further afield for attractions like Kylemore Abbey a car is recommended..
