This traditional hillside cottage, on the side of Mount Gable, has panoramic views over mountains and the noted fishing lake of Lough Mask whilst Lough Corrib, famous for fishing is close by.
The cottage is a real ’get away from it all’ cottage. There is no TV and no Wi -Fi in the cottage, just a wood burner and clean mountain air outside! Guests can walk directly to the summit of Mount Gable and savour mountain, lakes and ocean views. The stable door entrance, small windows and thick walls are reminiscent of yesteryear, whilst cosy furnishings complement the simplicity of the property and its surroundings. While it’s location may be halfway up a mountain, it is only 3 miles to the pretty village of Clonbur. There are miles of unspoilt roads in the area, perfect for walkers. Ashford Castle, with its beautiful grounds, is a short drive away, and there are miles and miles of official walking routes in the area. For those interested in fishing, brown trout and salmon can be caught (at cost, Feb-Sep, license may be required), and boats are available for hire locally. Petersburg outdoor activity centre offers kayaking, rock climbing and more, and is located nearby. The attractions of the Connemara National Park and the buzz of Galway city centre are within easy driving distance. Shop, pubs and restaurants 2.5 miles.
