Property Features

Three become one…

Completely rebuilt on the foundations of three 19th century famine cottages, the lodge gazes out through panoramic windows onto an ever changing ocean.

Clever design has ensured that all the main living spaces experience uninterrupted views of the bay.

Doors are as generous as windows here, with a set of double ones leading through from the tiled entrance hall to the large open plan kitchen and dining area.

There is more than enough counter space including a central preparation island, and all the gadgets one would expect.
A breakfast bar with hi-stools serves as an informal divide to the dining area.

If sitting in a bay window with views on three sides is not close enough to nature, and if the weather is behaving itself, you can slip through the glass doors and dine al fresco from the grand rustic refectory table.

Following through from the kitchen, you can take your choice from any of the three sofas in the living room.

There is no escaping the views in the bedrooms either – more sliding panoramic glazing!
Neutral colours, warm pine panelling and under floor heating feature here and throughout the home.

All the bedrooms are en suite with stylish modern bathrooms and mosaic tiled floors.

There is under-floor central heating throughout, and the house is wheelchair friendly.
If you have a particular requirement, or want an activity or guide organised be sure to tell us.

Outside

The cottage is literally a stone’s throw from the pebbly beach, and a short walk through the garden finds a small sandy cove which is safe for swimming.

There are 14 acres of natural secluded landscape surrounding the house with limitless opportunities for walking or kayaking, fishing or painting – whatever takes your fancy really.

The area is dominated by the majestic Twelve Bens (or Pins), a series of craggy mountains in Connemara National Park that are a magnet to the serious hill walker.

For Golfers, the magnificent and scenic eighteen hole Connemara Championship Golf links is just 20K away.

Keep your eyes open for the hardy Connemara Pony. A breed collected internationally, they are known for their athleticism, versatility and good disposition. Every July, the Ballyconneely pony show attracts people from the surrounding county to exhibit livestock and enjoy the travelling funfair.

Clifden, known as the capital of Connemara, is just 5 kilometres away – a 10 minute drive along a narrow road or 45 minute stroll along a very scenic road. Packed with great shops and restaurants, and catering for all shopping and craft needs, it is the central crossroads for daytrips.

Watch out for the Arts festival in late September, and Clifden Pony Show in August.

The Connemara 100 Mile Ultra Marathon, occurs in mid August every year, and passes through Clifden. Last year the winner did it in just under 16 hours – 6.35 miles an hour!

A drive or cycle around the deeply indented coastline reveals many beaches of staggering beauty, and some of golden coral, which is formed from the skeletons of maerl seaweed. You will also discover quirky little fishing harbours; sanctuary from the huge Atlantic swells.

On 15th June 1919 British aviators Alcock and Brown, made the first transatlantic flight from Newfoundland to Connemara. Taking less than 16 hours to complete the journey, they made landfall in what appeared from the air to be a suitable green field, but which turned out to be a bog near Clifden.
