About this listing
The Wild Atlantic Way passes the entrance. We are close to beaches and shops, and walks from the house provide stunning scenery towards Innishboffin, Clare Island and the mountains of Mayo with Croagh Patrick in the distance. It is an ideal base for driving tours south around the Sky Road and through Clifden to Roundstone and north to Letterfrack National Park, Kylemore Abbey, Killary Harbour and the beautiful peninsula of Renvyle.
We are renting out a 1-bedroom apartment on 2 floors with basic but lovely country house furnishings, and two bathrooms, right off the beautifully rugged Connemara coast, between Cleggan and Claddaduff. The beach is a beautiful 10-minute walk away. The place contains a spacious upstairs bedroom with a double bed and a single bed and a desk (and a view of the bog), and a downstairs living room (which can be turned into a bedroom) with a double futon bed and en suite bathroom, an kitchen and dining area. The apartment is attached to the back of a larger house, but has it's own entrance and complete privacy. There is parking available.
We are within a short walking distance of the stunning Connemara Coast with it's white sandy beaches and the small town of Cleggan, a 3 minute drive away, where you will find a shop and three pubs and a Fish&Chip shop. The historic and beautiful town of Clifden is a 15-minute drive away. In Cleggan and Clifden, where you can rent bikes, there are a number of nice cafes that offer free WiFi. You will need a car however, as public transport is too infrequent.
This is a great area for adults and kids alike (our grandchildren love it!); there are spectacular beaches nearby, the ferry can be gotten from Cleggan over to Inishbofin ( and walking through the colorful Connemara scenery and picking flowers and feeding horses is a treat! Nearby Cleggan (a 3-minute car ride or 20-min walk) also offers Sea and Fresh Water Angling, Horse Rising, Golf, and Boating. We have spectacular sunsets here, and this is a great area for landscape and nature photographers, and bird watching. The spectacular SKY ROAD is nearby, and please also note the annual Pony Show in Clifden in August.
