Red Deer Cottage in Stunning Location (Free Wi-Fi)
Letterfrack, County Galway, Ireland
Additional Location Information
This delightful new cottage is cheerful and bright - just like its owner who, along with her sister, is a well-known traditional Irish fiddle player. Children are warmly welcome here. A baby's cot is available on request. The front garden is a large and safe area for kids to play in. This is a strictly non-smoking property.
Baunoges Cottage is situated in a foodie's paradise with the award winning Renvyle House Hotel a mere 10 minutes away by car. If you feel like walking, the Rosleague Manor Hotel is only a five minute trek from the cottage. The village of Letterfrack is 1.5 miles from the cottage and has shops, pubs, and restaurants. The Avoca Handcrafts shop is half a mile from the cottage with a great variety of clothes, handcrafts, books, cds and kitchenware. Kylemore Abbey is less than ten minutes drive with beautiful landscaped gardens, and pretty walks around the abbey and its lakes. Killary Harbour and Leenane is a little further towards Westport. It is eight miles from Clifden, the capital of Connemara - a great place to go for food and to listen to some traditional Irish music. You can always take the Sky Road Drive out of Clifden, with its breathtaking views across to Slyne Head and Ballyconeely. Inishbofin is a day trip and reachable by a ferry that leaves Cleggan every morning and evening - give yourself 20 minutes to get there as the roads can be busy during the summer. There are many fine sandy beaches in the area - just ask and I'll be happy to direct you to a few hidden gems. At the right time of the year, you can also walk the shore and collect cockles & mussels - a lovely meal in itself. Connemara National Park is practically on the doorstep, with a variety of walks to suit everyone and an excellent playground for kids of all ages! There is also a lovely tea room with a visitors centre open daily.
The closest of several area beaches is Ross Beach, 10 minutes by car..nearest sandy Beaches in Renvyle are only 6 miles away.
Connemara is a walker's paradise. Baunoges, on the road to Cregg Hill, has magical views from the top. Considered an easy climb, you can, see as far as Roundstone in one direction and Achill, in County Mayo, in the other.
For the more ambitious walker, there is nearby Diamond Mountain and the Twelve Bens, 2 kms away, which has a new path and amazing views as far as Croagh Patrick to the north and The Burren to the south.
