Oscar Wilde described Connemara as ‘a place of savage beauty’ and no truer phrase fits the stunning location of this magnificent coastal property. Positioned on circa 11 acres of land that span across the Aughris peninsula of Gannough, this property enjoys panoramic views-both of the Atlantic Ocean and inland to the east, The Twelve Pins and Mweelrea Mountains. Incredibly this property has circa 450 meters of seashore frontage, including beaches facing both north and south on either side of this beautiful peninsula.


The cottage is traditional yet stylish and has been graciously extended and enhanced with large bright rooms. It is very well proportioned two-bedroom property with a dual aspect which takes full advantage of the light and views. Further accommodation comprises of a large reception room with an open fireplace, kitchen with a Stanley stove, dining room, bathroom, w.c. and loft room / space. The master bedroom enjoys a marvellous large ensuite and dressing area.


The property is accessed off a local road, at the end of a tree/shrub lined avenue.  There are also two outbuildings on site. Cleggan and Claddaghduff villages are a very short drive away and Clifden town is 10 minutes from here.
