Set in the magnificent surroundings of the Maam Valley, the Connemara Artists Cottages offers self catering accommodation in a charming 100 year old cottage. The Cottage has been refurbished and extended to provide a peaceful retreat offering cosy living accommodation, with 2 large bedrooms. Ideally located with charming villages, fabulous beaches, and Clifden and Galway City all within a 45 minutes.
