Located at the heart of the Lough Cutra Castle Estate in south Galway this three bed house was built during the Great Famine of 1846. It was converted into living accommodation in the 1920s by the Gough Family who moved out of Lough Cutra Castle at that time. The cottage reflects their lifestyle having wooden floors throughout the downstairs as well as a marble fireplace in the large living room. There is ample seating for up to seven guests around the dining table and in the living area. There is a fully equipped and fitted kitchen and adjacent utility room. Two of the bedrooms are doubles (one with en suite shower) and the third bedroom is a twin. The upstairs bathroom has a tub and shower.
The house is close to Galway and Limerick cities, as well as the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, the beaches of west Clare and the Aran Islands. There are plenty of Golf Courses in the vicinity offering golfers a wide choice. Equestrian facilities abound in the area for horse lovers, ranging from Hunting with the Galway Blazers to beginners riding school lessons in Co. Clare. For heritage enthusiasts we are located close to Coole Park, home of Lady Gregory, Thoor Ballylee home of Yeats, the heritage town of Gort, The monastery at Kilmacduagh and a host of other attractions. Swimming is close by in our own lake or at the beaches at Tracht. Surfing is close by in West Clare. Excellent shopping in Galway and Limerick from designer boutiques to quirky/interesting markets and everything in between.
