Waterfall Cottage is a completely unique vacation rental property at the heart of the spectacular Delphi Valley in south west Mayo, Ireland - and directly on the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.
This extraordinarily scenic area is on the northern fringe of the beautiful Connemara region and just over the border from county Galway. Killary Fjord is less than two miles away and the nearest village is the pretty seaside hamlet of Leenane, Co Galway.
Surrounded by one of Ireland’s largest Special Areas for Conservation and in a National Heritage Area, the four-bedroom holiday home overlooks a pristine river in a stunning wilderness setting.
A dream holiday cottage that was formerly part of the famous Delphi estate, this deceptively large rental property is a reconstruction and extension of two 19th century cottages, merged into one home of great character.
There are no other buildings in sight.
Clad in local stone, roofed with traditional Welsh slates and fully insulated to modern standards, Waterfall Cottage has all the charm of a period property with all the benefits of modern reconstruction.
The cottage sleeps eight people in great comfort and an extra two bunk beds can be added on request.
There are four principal bedrooms (three with one large bed and one with twin single beds), plus an optional extra bunk room. There are three bathrooms, one en-suite with the master bedroom.
There’s a modern kitchen and a large day room equipped with satellite TV, wi-fi, an eclectic library and a DVD player. The piece de resistance is the spectacular 440 sq. ft. lower level River Room with its terrace right beside the river, offering amazing views over the water to the wild scenery beyond.
The cottage has oil-fired underfloor heating and a large wood-burning stove.
