With superb far reaching views of the sea and Connemara Mountains, this Romantic Detached Thatched hideaway is situated in a peaceful spot on the beautiful Renvyle Peninsula
Full of Olde Worlde charm, with small cottage windows and beams, makes a perfect retreat for a romantic honeymoon, as it is only a 10 minute stroll to the lovely Tully beach, Pier and harbour, where children enjoy to swim in the evening, when the tide comes in over the warm sand. My grandchildren love it.
With so much to do in the area, where do you start?
The National Park at Letterfrack is a 10 minute drive away. Opened to the public in 1980 The Connemara National Park is dominat3d by the massive Diamond Mountain, from the top visitors can enjoy views of 2,957 hectares of mountains, bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands.
some of the Park's mountains - Benbaun,Bencullagh Benbrack and Muckanaght - are part of the famous 12 Bens or Benna Beola range. Many lands which are now part of the park were once owned by the Kylemore Abbey Estate and the Letterfrack Industrial School. At present the whole area of the National Park is owned by the State and managed solely for National Park purposes.
The gorgeous valley of Kylemore, only 10 minutes aaway, is dominated by the astonishing Kylemore Abbey. The Building was built in 1864-1871 by an Englishman Mitchell Henry. When on honeymoon, at a shooting Lodge in the area his new bride, Margaret said to him 'Mitchell, build me a castle here' and his love for her was so great that he did!!!
Golf enthusiasts can enjoy a round on the scenic Ocean and lakeside course at the nearby Renvyle House Hotel. The hotel was once owned by the Poet Oliver St John Gogarty.
