Amazing Short Break
Had 4 days in this beautiful cottage in the heart of Connemara - Great weather - sunny all days - walks on the beach and mountains - great golf and fantastic food in Clifden plus a few beers as the sun was setting. 2 adults and 2 teenage kids - just what the doctor ordered for a stress free break at Easter. Many options for accommodation in the West but this comes highly recommended - authentic cottage, super clean, traditional, rustic, warm and comfortable. €5 euro in a taxi from Clfden. Cottage is very private and set on river/stream with closest living critters being birds, otters and sheep - no noise - bliss. Liam and Marian great to deal with - good tips and really helpful - Thanks for a memorable stay - we'll be back. Keith and Dee.

What a Wonderful Experience!
We had a lovely stay at Cuach Cottage. It's a warm and comfortable place in a beautiful location, convenient to Clifden and Connemara. The Youngs did a wonderful job in renovating the cottage and adding modern conveniences while maintaining its 19th century charm. It truly felt like home, and we can't wait to come back.
So much cute details!
The cottage was so cute, and there were tiny little decorative features in every room, from a vintage clock on the mantlepiece, the wellie door knocker, the trinkets on every shelf, to the cool retro radio. My partner and I wanted somewhere quiet to get away from a mega busy few months and Cuach Cottage is just what we needed. We stayed on the October bank holiday weekend; it rained solid for the three days, but we just read and snuggled up by the wood/turf stove together. The housekeeper Eileen was waiting for us when we got there at almost 11pm on the Friday night, and had the fire lit for us. We cooked for ourselves for the weekend, and there was every tool we needed in the compact kicthen. The location is so so quiet and i recommend it to anyone who wants to shut off the outside world for a few days.
Response from Liam & Marian Young - 01/02/2012
Thanks Louise. The weather in Connemara is somewhat unpredictable at that time of year, however, it has it's own charm particularly for outdoor people who just love the ruggedness of the area and the continually changing light.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in "Cuach Cottage" Eileen our housekeeper is "The salt of the earth" and ensures every guest is looked after in a personal manner.
Wishing you a very happy and and not too stressful New Year,
Liam & Marian.

A Unique and Soulful Experience
From the moment we arrived at "Cuach" Cottage we truly relaxed from the stress of city life. The cottage was amazing it is furnished in a very French/Irish rustic manner with really quaint little touches throughout. It felt like our own home. The care and attention to detail left us feeling like we had furnished it our selves. With the rambling river running past the cottage and the backdrop of the "Twelve Pins" behind the cottage it is truly a unique and special location. The cottage has so many aspects to it and we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. We had planned to eat out each evening in nearby Cliften but found we preferred to light our turf burning stove and stay in the comfort of our cosy cottage. Cuach Cottage is a unique and amazing hideaway definately worth the visit.
