About the property

Luxury Self Catering Cottage in beautiful Connemara

Why don’t you come & relax in this peaceful home, open a bottle of wine, put your feet up & chill out in the calming den upstairs or unwind by the fire downstairs whilst planning your days/nights in this stunningly beautiful part of Ireland.

Situated down a private lane, it offers breathtaking sea views overlooking Ballinakill Bay and Tully Mountain. The kitchen, dining & living area is a bright spacious open plan with wooden beams. Three clean luxurious bedrooms downstairs and the master bedroom upstairs offer stunning views. With an exceptionally well-kitted kitchen, wood burning stove, large flat-screen TV, Sky+ HD, DVD, surround sound, free wi-fi a separate hi-fi system upstairs and a new TV you will find it hard to leave the cottage!

Outside there is a wooden wind-shielded deck, dining furniture & BBQ - perfect for quiet al fresco dining with a picturesque view. It is very close to Letterfrack village, (shops, pubs & restaurants), Connemara National Park, Kylemore Abbey, Clifden & Cleggan.

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, Ballyconeely and Errislannon. 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.Check out the new video on her website which will give you a much better insight into Red Deer Cottage!

Spacious, charming and well-equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all and still have all the comfort of a lovely 4-bedroom house, this fantastic cottage is a must in Connemara.

It is well-maintained, clean and has a superb nature location, surrounded by meadows with a fantastic view of a lake.

The energy of the place is so well-coming that you feel immediately at home.

Liz, the owner answered all our questions patiently and provided a special mattress to sooth my back problems.

We are very grateful for all the help we received.

We can wholeheartedly recommend this property to a friend or family member. If we go back to Connemara, we would definitly stay again at Red Deer Cottage.

Red Deer Cottage is a gem. Snuggled down a quiet, winding lane, it is surrounded by lush vegetation and rolling, wooded pasture.

From every aspect there are delightful views of striking hillsides and of Barnaderg Bay with its glorious sunsets.

All the rooms in this spacious cottage are tastefully furnished and filled with light. The well equipped kitchen includes a lovely eating area, the bathrooms are stylish and the beds - oh, so comfy!

There are hints throughout that the house is cherished and often filled with music. Perhaps this is why Red Deer Cottage really does feel like a home.

Wonderful cottage in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well equipped and fitted to a very high standard. It has lovely views (aided by what is almost a wall of windows) and is laid out in a cozy but also airy open plan living area and traditional bedroom design. The beds were very comfortable and the place was spotlessly clean. The cottage is situated on a private driveway and although there are other houses and cottages nearby, it is not overlooked. Therefore it is a great balance of peace without being too isolated. Good shopping is only a short drive away in either Cliffden or Letterfrack and the hills and beaches are close at hand and easy to access. I would thoroughly recommend Red Deer Cottage and the area in general. Thanks for a great holiday, Liz.

Gem in Connemara

  • 5 of 5

Red Deer Cottage provides superb accommodation in a convenient location close to shops and attractions in Letterfrack village and Clifden. There are wonderful walks from the cottage and the national park is nearby. The cottage itself is exceptionally well-appointed with all modern conveniences and a lovely ambience. The owner, Liz, was very welcoming and assisted us during our stay. We would certainly recommend Red Deer Cottage if you are considering a stay in beautiful Connemara.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week during October half term, with our three children, and really enjoyed our stay.

The cottage is in a beautiful location, which is very private, located just outside Letterfrack village, and very close to Connemara National Park. We really liked this, as it meant we had a really relaxing stay, but could easily take a 5 minute drive into the village to visit the local shop or one of the pubs. The house is well-equipped, especially the kitchen, which has a huge amount of cooking utensils and crockery, and a really nice range cooker. We also made good use of the WiFi and Sky TV, which kept our teenager happy! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The mezzanine is a nice feature too, as I enjoyed listening to music there if the kids were watching TV, and the kids liked it as a different place to play and relax.

The great location is very close to the 'Wild Atlantic Way' too, so the cottage was a great base for exploring the coastline, and for visiting Clifden or Kylemore Abbey. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend this cottage, and this wonderful area.

The spectacular Connemara National Park is two kilometres from the property. There are walking paths, hiking and an interpretive centre with a lovely cafe. It is a 'must do'


Kylemore Abbey is 5 kms away. It has a long and interesting history and beautiful gardens. www.kylemoreabbey.com

It's a few minutes' drive to the fishing village of Cleggan from where you can make day trips to Inishbofin Island. 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 of the area. Considered an easy climb, you can, from the top, 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.

Other Activities: Biking and Boat trips can be arranged through Connemara adventures with advanced notice .

Golf: Nestled between the scenic splendour of the 12 Bens mountain range and the rugged Atlantic ocean, lies Connemara Golf Links. From the testing dog leg opening hole through to the breathtaking back 9, which have been acknowledged as the 'equal to any in the world', Connemara is an enduring monument to its designer Eddie Hackett.
