QUIET, ROMANTIC FAMILY COTTAGE, SHORES OF LAKE CORRIB, CONNEMARA, CO GALWAY

Connemara Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Private cottage, comfort, big garden, access to lake, 5 bedrooms

“Anam-Samh” (= “tranquil soul” in Irish) is a modern, comfortable and tastefully furnished 5-bedroomed family cottage with a conservatory and a living area of 200 square meters, idyllically situated on a secluded 2.5 acre site directly on the shores of Lough Corrib, surrounded by a very large Garden and its own woods at rear. As its name implies the house is an ideal place to get away from it all. With panoramic views of Lough Corrib and the Connemara mountains in the distance, the setting is breathtaking, peaceful and surrounded by nature. Relax and read in front of a cosy log fire; take a stroll through the surrounding countryside go fishing, hill-walking or biking through scenic Connemara or enjoy cinemas, theatre, traditional Irish music etc. It's all on your doorstep.

Out of the Guest Book: What a wonderful week we had! We enjoyed your beautiful house, beautiful country and very kind & helpful people. What a magical place! We will miss the birds, bunnies and other wild life around your lovely home, but we take home many new memories. 21. – 28. July 2007, the McMurry Family, Los Alamos USA *****

How lucky we feel to have chanced upon your lovely home on the internet and to have managed to book it for the week of the wedding of our nephew. It’s in such a beautiful location and we were lucky with the weather. That all in all made our stay really wonderful. 14. – 21. July 2007, Kathy Booth., London, UK

*****

Tranquil, peaceful and above all the calming scenery: Enough to recharge the batteries and more. The weather was very wet while we were here, but your house and the magnificent view gave us rest and made up for it, ten times over. Will definitely be back hail, rain or snow, but hopefully sun shine. 30. June – 7. July 207, the Jonston Family, Downpatrick Ireland

Galway: Galway City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. Visitors and students contribute a lot to the life of the City and are welcomed by the Galwegians for doing so. Galway and its surroundings are famous for many festivals from the Film festival (end June), 'Galway Arts Festival' (mid-July), 'Galway Races' (end July) culminating in the famous 'Galway and Clarinbridge Oster Festival' (in September). A free newspaper which contains details of what's happening in the City 'The Galway Advertiser' is published every Thursday and it is worth checking the internet or picking up a copy (available in any newsagent's, if you are quick).

Tourist attractions: The house is ideally situated for trips to the wonderful scenic area of Connemara and Co. Clare. Connemara is a superb fishing and golfing area. Oughterard Golf Club (18 hole Parkland) is only ten minutes away. You may also go on beautiful walks (Connemara Way) and there is wildlife for the keen photographer. Visit Co. Clare e.g. the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren with its spectacular views and the Aran Islands by boat from Rossavael (45 minutes drive from the house).

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5
We loved it! We had plenty of room with 6 people and lovely views of the lake. It was an adventure getting to the house, but once we arrived we loved it! It was very cozy and we felt like we were at home. I would highly recommend it to friends and would stay there again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our two teenage daughters, my mother, and my in-laws spent a wonderful week together here. We chose this property because the master suite had a walk-in shower on the main floor which was perfect for guests with physical limitations. The house has absolutely everything you would need and the best equipped kitchen of any holiday rental we ever had. We shared most evening meals all together around the dining room table and had one evening meal out at the Forge in Moycullen which had a great menu of food in a casual dining atmosphere. I can’t say enough about this property. The second floor has two nice bedrooms and a spacious lounge in addition to a full bath. The views from most rooms are absolutely spectacular and one morning we awakened to the mooing of cows that were grazing in the property next door. So much thought went into furnishing and equipping this property with instructions for all appliances handy. We hope to return someday and next visit will set aside a full day to explore Connemara National Park.

Outstanding & Stunning Property!

Outstanding & Stunning Property!
  • 5 of 5
My family have just returned from staying in this stunning property, it is even better than it looks on the website!

Extremely relaxing, and the window in the lounge overlooking the Lough can not be beaten, especially if you enjoy curling up and reading. Excellent location, and plenty of very nice restaurants in close proximity, would highly recommend The Pullman Restaurant at Glenlo Abbey Hotel (food is good, but the experience is excellent), O'Grady's on the Pier in Barna is excellent.

The house has absolutely everything you could want in it, the kitchen is extremely well equipped with all the pots, pans, spices, oils etc that you would need.

The people looking after the house were extremely helpful, and yet very unobtrusive.

We can not recommend this property highly enough, and will definitely be back again.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5
Zuallererst: Wir haben und hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist äußerst geräumig und gemütlich, die Abende am Kamin mit einem Glas Jameson in der Hand sind sehr stimmungsvoll. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, es ist alles da, was man braucht.

Als Fotografen war für uns natürlich die Lage sehr wichtig. Von hier aus als Startpunkt sind viele sehr sehenswerte Orte relativ schnell erreichbar. Der Norden des Lough Corrib ist für Sonnenaufgänge gut geeignet. Connemara, The Burren und der Atlantik sind mit dem Auto schnell erreicht. Die Lage am See ist traumhaft. Schade ist nur, dass man nicht zu Fuß um den See herum kann, da hier Zäune im Weg sind. Dafür ist das Grundstück sehr groß und beinhaltet ein ansehnliches Stück Seeufer.

Das Haus liegt etwas versteckt, jedoch ist es mit der ausgezeichneten Karte, die der Vermieter zur Verfügung stellt, absolut kein Problem, dieses zu finden.

Auch die Leseecke für verregnete Tage (die es in Irland eben ab und zu ;-) mal gibt), ist auch recht gut ausgestattet und hier findet jeder etwas, auch in deutsch.

Übrigens: Im Pub without Name (auch auf der Karte zu finden) kann man bei einem Glas Guiness in das Leben der Bewohner eintauchen.

Eine Oase der Ruhe

  • 5 of 5
Die Hausbeschreibung hat nicht zu viel versprochen: Unsere Erwartungen wurden auf jeden Fall zur vollsten Zufriedenheit erfüllt. Einrichtungsstil des Landhauses ist ein wenig "Old-fashioned" , was wir als sehr gemütlich empfunden haben. Die Küche lässt keine Wünsche offen. Und so bringt es Spaß, das eine oder andere Gericht selbst zuzubereiten. Allesamt waren wir begeistert von den Matrazen, die Garant für einen erholsamen Schlaf waren. Einfach klasse! Insgesamt macht das Landhaus einen recht gepflegten, sauberen und gut durchdachten Eindruck und stellt einen idealen Ausgangspunkt für vielerlei Ausflüge dar. Was haben wir vermisst? Eigentlich nichts! Vielleicht ein eigenes Ruderboot, das die Möglichkeit bietet, die Fischgründe vor Ort zu erkunden (wir hatten Glück! Freundliche Nachbarn stellten uns kostenlos (!!!) ein Ruderboot zur Verfügung und so konnten wir uns den Weg nach Oughterard sparen...). Was bietet die nähere Umgebung? Natürlich den Pub ohne Namen in Carrowmoreknock (für uns eher "Liebe auf den zweiten Blick"...), GALWAY - tolle Stadt mit vielen Pubs (The Quays), Restaurants (Oscar's Seafood Bistro) und netten Leuten, das White Gable in Moycullin mit herrlichen Steaks und schmackhaften Fischgerichten.

Wir kommen wieder!

Anám-Samh -dieser Ort entspricht seinem Namen

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben leider zu 5. (anstatt zu 6.) aber dennoch 2 ganz wundervolle Wochen in diesem traumhaften Haus verbracht. Wie schön es war spürt man erst richtig wenn man nicht mehr dort ist und zurück blickt. Die traumhafte Lage und die Ruhe am See, zusammen mit den wunderbaren Aussichten und Einblicken unserer Touren durch die Umgebung, haben wirklich für eine lang anhaltende Erholung gesorgt. Am Abend hat man sich stets aufs "Heimkommen" gefreut, denn dieses Haus ist wirklich mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und dekoriert. Man findet alles was das Herz begehrt!
