Rental Home
A dream holiday cottage on the Wild Atlantic Way Formerly part of the Delphi estate, this deceptively large rental property is a reconstruction and extension of two 19th century cottages, merged into one home of great character. There are no other buildings in sight. Clad in local stone, roofed with traditional Welsh slates and fully insulated to modern standards, Waterfall Cottage has all the charm of a period property with all the benefits of modern reconstruction. The cottage sleeps ten adults in great comfort. There are four principal bedrooms (three with a superking or king bed and one with twin single beds), plus an extra bunk room with two full-size bunk beds. There are three ultra-modern bathrooms (2017), one en-suite with the master bedroom. Two have large showers and one ...A dream holiday cottage on the Wild Atlantic Way Formerly part of the Delphi estate, this deceptively large rental property is a reconstruction and extension of two 19th century cottages, merged into one home of great character.

Our family ( 7 adults ) had the wonderful experience of spending a great, active and relaxing time at Waterfall Cottage in Delphi Valley. The location, the spacious and beautiful cottage were all and more than one would expect. We do expect to return.

About the neighborhood
The main attractions are the scenery, the beaches, the fishing, the hiking and the sense of utter tranquility. The nearest major town is Westport, a beautiful Georgian town with the historic Westport House a major attraction. Scenic drives through Connemara and Mayo are a must, perhaps taking in the Victorian gardens at Kylemore Abbey, the pretty fishing village of Roundstone, the National Museum of Country Life and the holy mountain of Croagh Patrick.
Getting around
Having the use of a car is essential.
