BEAUTIFUL THATCHED COTTAGE IN A SCENIC MOUNTAIN VALLEY, CONNEMARA, CO. GALWAY

Connemara Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Mountains & Lakes surround this 200 year old Cottage,beautifuly restored in 2004

Casey's Cottage is located in the scenic mountains and lakes in the surroundings of North Connemara.

This historic country house was built in the period before the famine of the Casey family.

In 2004 it was renovated CAREFULLY to retain the original features, including a thatched roof.

The villa is located 3 minutes from Lough Mask and 8 km from Lough Corrib, two of the largest lakes in Ireland.

You can take a beautiful walk along the road and reach the village of Clonbur (4km). There you will find restaurants, nice pubs and shops. The location is an ideal base for playing golf, fly fishing, horseback riding and hiking, and even for those who just want to stay away from it all.

Gearoid Burke, the owner, lives just around the corner and would be glad to assist you.

Christmas in Clonbur

A fairytale cottage in a warm and welcoming community! The hosts are so accommodating, as are the folks in town at the pubs. A car rental is a must in order to explore the area. The cottage was decorated for our Christmas holiday, and the Burkes left us gifts as well! We hope to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and I am glad you had a great time, thank you for the U.S. Coast Guard caps you brought with you. I'm sorry I did not get a chance to meet you, I was working over the Christmas period (Retail) but maybe next time? All the very best, regards, Gerald.

Charming place to live sort of like your ancestors

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect to give you an idea of how your ancestors lived--but with modern conveniences. The cottage is just as it appears in the photos. It does have 2 bathrooms, one being behind the red door in the master bedroom. It is tiny, sort of like on an older cruise ship, but charming. The washer & dryer are separate units (rather than a combo unit) & work well. The kitchen is compact but has what is needed to cook a meal. Note that the dishwasher is no longer functioning, so bring some rubber gloves to spare your hands when washing dishes. The coffee pot is one of the French Press style, so learn how to do that before arriving. The "king" beds are really more Queen size. There is no wifi at the cottage, but you can go to Burkes Pub in Clonbur, have a pint & use their wifi.
The cottage is about 15 minutes from the village of Cong, famous as the filming location for the John Wayne move The Quiet Man. Pat Cohan's Pub is still right on the corner. It even has a nook that looks just like the pub did in the movie-be sure to look at all of the photos they have posted. The cottage is a good base for touring into Connemara-which is just beautiful. Just mind the sheep in the road!
Casey's Cottage was a wonderful week. At night it is so quiet you can't believe your ears. And if you luck into a clear night, the stars are magnificent since there is little interference from street lights, etc. A great, quaint place to stay.

A Hidden Gem

We had the pleasure of staying at Casey's Cottage in June 2013. Without a doubt this area is one of the hidden gems of Ireland. This lovely cottage is nestled among the mountains and lakes of Connemara. The cottage is located only a short walk from the shores of Lough Mask. Lough Corrib and Lough Nafooey are only a short drive by car. Each day we would venture out to all parts of Connemara and Mayo. The cottage itself has been remodeled with all of the modern conveniences yet it still maintains the cozy charm of a 19th century cottage. The owners added so many extra touches including videos, turf for the fire and enough food to help us enjoy an Irish breakfast each morning. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the oven was newly purchased before our arrival. For those interested in the pub scene the towns of Clonbur and Cong are a few miles away. Staying at Casey's Cottage truly enhanced our Irish experience.

~~OUTSTANDING~~

One of my husband's favorite movies is "The Quiet Man" starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. Staying at this lovely cottage made us feel as if we were transported into the film! The property is nestled at the foot of a large hill looking over a valley. A stream runs down below the cottage and a lake is within walking distance. Inside the cottage, the decor is warm and inviting, sometimes making it hard to go exploring the beauty that fills the outside. The owners were more than kind and helpful. A dream come true!

If anyone ever goes to Ireland this is the place to stay. For the residence of course. It is charming and welcoming. It feels like home as soon as one opens that wonderful red door. For the peace and serenity certainly. Everything there makes for calm and relaxation. Stress just doesn't have a place there. For the convenience surprisingly so. Everywhere we wanted to go was an easy and delightful drive away. However, more than anything, for the people! The human kind. (We saw none of the magical kind that we know of.) The Burkes are warm, reliable, intelligent and their smiles will stay with us forever. So pleasant. So generous. Go to this place to find the finest Ireland has to offer. Magnificent scenery. Legendary fishing. A picture book village with a truly fine Irish pub. Delicious food. Ringing laughter. And real Irish people who live each day with grace, courage, hope and more than a little wit.
