The Cottage: “Pier View” is a delightful traditionally styled cottage overlooking Derryinver Quay, a small fishing harbour which is at the eastern end of the beautiful Ballinakill Bay. The views across the bay towards the twelve Bens Mountains are stunning and the light changes constantly. If you want to relax and enjoy watching the fishing boats come and go this is the ideal place for you.
If you want to be a bit more active the cottage is ideally located. Ten minutes drive will bring you to the village of Letterfrack where you will find shops, bars and restaurants where you can have a pint, a meal and enjoy locally sourced produce including fish and oysters. Also in Letterfrsck is the Connemara National Park where you can find out about the local ecology or take a hike up the Diamond Mountain. In the other direction you will find Tullycross Village where you can shop or eat out too.
There are some great walks literally on the doorstep with Tully Mountain at the back of the house.
You can spend a day visiting Kylemore Abbey or if you are feeling more energetic organize a trip to Scuba Dive West diving centre. The sandy beaches of the Renvyle peninsula are only a very short drive away and stretch for miles down to the mouth of Killary Harbour. If you stay here you will never be short of something to do.
Inside: There are four bedrooms in the cottage which are 2 doubles and 2 twins. Relax in sitting room and dining area with a solid fuel stove, TV and DVD player. From the windows of the lounge you have lovely views, a real Connemara experience, peaceful to the heart. Look out for dolphins in the bay in the early morning.
