"Absolute Bliss"
We had a fantastic stay!. The house lacks nothing. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable and spacious areas for relaxing and big bedrooms.
The outdoor space is ideal for watching the sun setting across Lough Corrib over Connemara.
There is lots to do within easy reach - from historic Cong village and Ashford Castle to Galway City and onwards to Connemara. We did a fantastic drive to Killary Fjord and the scenery all the way there and back was stunning.
The house is very well maintained with friendly, helpful owners and I recommend it for anyone who wants to chill out for a week or more or use it as a base to explore the wonderful west of Ireland.

"Spectacular Getaway"
An incredible getaway to a fantastic lodge, yards from the Lough Corrib shoreline with a great little spot for swimming just outside the house. Would highly recommend for families of all ages; there are ample things to do even on a rainy day and we especially enjoyed the pool table in the evenings. We will most definitely be back.

"Fantastic Tranquil Incredibly Beautiful"
The Lodge is set on the border of Galway and Mayo on Lough Corrib. It has its own pier and rowing boat. 4 big double bedrooms, TV with multiple channels, pool table, books, games lots to occupy you if it rains. Big garden with BBQ, patio table & chairs to enjoy the outdoors.
We enjoyed the morning sunshine with our coffee and toast, listening to Lyric FM, “Marty in the Morning”, looking across the lake watching people in canoes. Such peace and wellbeing.
Ideal location for touring West Ireland. Cong Village a few miles away, where “The Quiet Man” was made, with Ashford Castle, is a romantic spot. Through the Maumturk Mountains on to Leenane and Killary Fjord (Ireland's only fjord) south brings to Kylemore Abbey, Letterfrack and Clifden, back to Galway from here and onto Headford to complete the loop. Every part of Connemara is a full day outing. Stunning. Way too much to describe.
Rent this lodge and experience it for yourself. Read the Visitors book. Visitors from all corners of the globe have been here. Not a single negative comment.
We could not have been happier. 5 Big Stars.
