Nestled at the base of the 12 Bens mountains, directly overlooking Suantrai Beach and the ocean, the only traffic is the local fisherman pulling pots and traditional Galway hookers going by. This peaceful setting makes Cashel Bay Cottage the ideal sanctuary for a holiday getaway, family reunions, yoga retreats and corporate team building events. The house has an open-concept layout with dramatic ocean and mountain views. Four large bedrooms, three bathrooms, and spacious country kitchen make the home comfortable for large or small groups. A yoga studio, patios, fire pit, and an outdoor sauna give visitors a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy.
Relax in a beautiful outdoor oak sauna barrel with its glass wall enjoy the tranquil sea views overlooking Inis nee island. The sauna fits four guests comfortably so quality time together can be appreciated. Take a plunge into the crystal clear Atlantic after your sauna to clear your body of all toxins, and this gets the blood flowing and gives a beautiful feeling of being alive.
A highly qualified Massage Therapist with 14 years experience is available to visit and give on-site massages, followed by a seaweed bath, with untouched seaweed taken from the crisp, clear shoreline just below the house. Personal or group classes may also be arranged and can be enjoyed in the custom built yoga room, or enjoyed on your private beach. Enjoy an array of activities without the need of a car. Examples include: A day or half day trip on a traditional Connemara hooker to visit surrounding islands. A currach trip to Roundstone for lunch; walking the beautiful surrounding hills and beaches; stopping off at local restaurants for lunch; or merely wander the shoreline to forge for seaweed and shellfish before preparing a meal together in the fully-equipped country kitchen.
All boat trips (hooker or currach) will leave from the shoreline behind the house upon request. Sharing our unique culture of the working boats, the Connemara hookers that carried turf to the surrounding islands, this luxury farmhouse is ideally located in the heart of Connemara, nestled in Cashel bay at the base of the famous Twelve Bens Mountains - just minutes by boat to the seaside village of Roundstone. Peace and tranquility abound in this seaside getaway; wake up each morning to the sound of the sea just outside your bedroom window. Onsite massage therapy is available as well as yoga classes - either in the house or on the beach; indeed a beautiful paradise.

The owner has taken artistic license with her description of this house. Although we spent a pleasant week in Connemara we found the house dirty and unkept. The views are wonderful, but a five star property it certainly is not.
"Oasis of calm" Probably the most relaxing holidays I've ever had. Stayed for three days with the girlfriend. it was pure bliss. Truly wonderful property and setting. There's even on-site massages!
"Gorgeous property overlooking the beach!" Had a wonderful time here last summer. Took the wife and kids (2) for a week in June. What a find! Very relaxing setting with amazing views. Kids had a great time - so did we. Would highly recommend....
