A fabulous detached stone cottage, in an elevated position on the fringes of Lettermore village, located on the Wild Atlantic Way, close to the sea in County Galway. The property has a rich history dating back over 100 years, and was formerly the village shop. Offering superb views, the cottage has been lovingly restored to provide spacious and welcoming accommodation full of character and original features, yet benefiting from all modern conveniences. Only a short walk away is the village centre, with a welcoming pub and local convenience store, whilst just a few miles outside the village golfers will be delighted to discover a challenging links course, complete with a tee shot over the Atlantic Ocean onto a small island! Alternatively, why not explore the nearby Connemara National Park, or cast a line into one of the many well-stocked fishing lakes that the area has to offer? An exceptional cottage, in a beautiful location.

Located on a small island in the south west corner of County Galway, the pretty village of Lettermore is connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway. This village is home to a welcoming Irish pub, a small convenience store and traditional butcher's shop, and is also located in an area where the Irish language is still prevalent. This beautiful area of unspoiled countryside offers a wide range of walking and cycling opportunities, as well as great spots for water sports. There are numerous coves, beaches and inlets to explore along the coastline, in addition to great opportunities for sailing, fishing and scuba diving. The Connemara National Park is only a short drive away, whilst the Aran Islands are located just off the coast in Galway Bay.

“Just returned from our second stay here. We were not disappointed. If you want to expierience rural rustic Ireland, then this is the place for you. A beautiful stone built cottage which used to be the village shop post office. A huge family farmhouse kitchen with roaring peat fire, comfortable living room with another roaring peat fire, three double bedrooms, one with great views over the bay, this has to be one of the best cottages we have stayed in. On arrival you will receive a warm traditional Irish welcome from Michael and Septa. Freshly baked scones and a steaming pot of tea or coffee, bottle of wine and chocolates. Even the beds had hot water bottles put in them. Michael will leave enough turf to burn for the week. It is equiped with everything you could possibly need for the week, from BBQ coal (if you get the weather) to walking poles. There are loads of books and guides on the local and surrounding area which itself, although rural is not that far from Galway or smaller local villages. Rorys shop at the bottom of the lane has everything you will need plus a well stocked off license. A pub 10 minutes walk with another less than 2 miles away. Be sure to go to Rosaveel (5 miles away) and catch the ferry to the Aran Islands (make sure you book ahead as they get busy over the summer) Inisheer is the smallest and most beatiful of the 3, again with several pubs and restaurants. Highly recommended. If you fancy a bit of deep sea fishing then there are several charter boats that usually go out 56 days a week, weather permitting. As the location is right of the edge of the wild Atlantic, dont expect tropical weather, although we did have it last year. I cant recommend this place highy enough and Michael and Septa will go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. With friends from England staying with us, we had a great time. looking forward to next year again”

“We couldn't be more thrilled with our choice of the Prague House for our family vacation. We were greeted upon arrival by the owners, who were just the sweetest and friendliest couple ever. They had brought us huge fresh scones from the bakery, lit a fire, set the table, and even had some milk and eggs to start us off. The house has everything you need such as towels, linens, dishes, utensils, potspans, seasonings, WIFI, TVs, literally everything! There were six of us and there were enough towels for all. There are two beautiful fireplaces which were so comfy! The surrounding area is gorgeous with a water view and amazing Irish scenery. It is also conveniently located in walking distance from a market (that also has everything you need), walking distance from the funnest pub (Plunkett) with live music & a gas station right next door, about 10 minutes driving from a post office, 20 minutes from a cute little art town called Spiddal, and 1 hour from the city of Galway. The house was so comfortable and cozy and felt like our own, and the town of Lettermore is so friendly and amazing. We absolutely loved our stay here. THESE PICTURES DONT DO IT JUSTICE the house is much larger and even more beautiful in person!”
