An 18th century traditional Irish cottage ‘Cuinne’ has been tastefully refurbished to encompass the comforts of modern living yet retains the charm of some original features such as the half door, stone hearth and low doorways. Set in mature, enclosed gardens the cottage is located in a small farming community 3kms from the town of Headford and 23kms from the medieval city of Galway. The air of tranquillity that pervades the area of approximately a dozen cottages makes it a wonderful place to relax. The garden provides the perfect location to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the peaceful countryside whilst also providing ample parking, bar-b-que, and garden furniture.
On the borders of counties Galway and Mayo ‘Cuinne’ is 10kms from Lough Corrib, Ireland’s second largest lake and renowned fishing centre. Loughs Mask and Carra, also great fishing lakes are within 20kms.
Headford Town is a lively market town with restaurants, pubs, supermarket etc. For further information see (website hidden) Lough Corrib is famous with anglers from all over Europe and hosts several competitions during the fishing season, the most famous being the Mayfly at the end of May.
