Glendollagh Lough and the grounds around the property are a haven for wildlife, with otters and hares frequently seen close to the cottage.

This delightful holiday home was originally built to the highest standards in 1895 being a classic combination of a historic building forming part of Recess Station on the Galway to Clifden railway, being built by the Midland Great Western Railway Company as the Engine House at Recess on the Galway to Clifden Railway.
