Whitethorn Cottage description

Holiday home
Whitethorn Cottage is a semi-detached single storey cottage in the countryside near Tully, on the Renvyle Peninsula in County Galway. There is a double room and a single room, and a shower room. The kitchen has a dining area, and the sitting room has an electric fire. Outside this traditional cottage is off road parking for 4 cars. Whitethorn Cottage is well placed for the beaches of the peninsula, as well as Kylemore Abbey, activities such as diving and fishing, and miles of wonderful walking.

Set on the picturesque Renvyle Peninsula in County Galway, the seaside village of Tully is located by the Atlantic Ocean, allowing fishermen to continue to land the daily catch on the small pier by the beach. The village itself offers two bars with restaurants, a post office, two supermarkets and a horse-riding centre, as well as Teach Ceoil - a music house which holds traditional events every Tuesday evening during July and August. Across the bay are the mountains of Mweelrea and Croagh Patrick, offering great walking and hiking opportunities, whilst Connemara National Park, Kylemore Abbey, and Inishboffin Island are all within easy reach.

Towering cliffs stand next to vast stretches of golden sand, whilst vast mountain ranges cradle cool, low-lying lakes. The Galway region epitomises the term ‘great outdoors'; with fantastic walking and cycling and exhilarating water sports.

The spot was lovely and tranquil. Looking out over the sea made the place even better. The owners are friendly and helpful.

Liked the views, walk from gate and other walks from the house. Had helpful while not intrusive owners. Views from the kitchen diner were superb. There were very good places to visit close by; Kylemore Abbey and Connemara national park were brilliant, there were lots of fantastic beaches.

The cottage was very well equipped. The kitchen had all the supplies of home. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our entire stay. We wouldn't hesitate staying there again. We love the area so much, it might just happen.

Very comfortable and well equipped. Comfortable bed and hot powerful shower and spotless. Good location close to beautiful beach. Owners very helpful and welcoming without being intrusive. Everything was great and we would certainly recommend Cartwheel Cottage.

Comfortable cottage, warmth assured by storage heaters and full explanations of facilities by owner who lives alongside. Well provided kitchen, Mira shower, etc. Views of Inishbofin and north to the Mayo mountains Mweelrea and Croagh Patrick. Good beach within easy reach at White Strand and good food at nearby renowned Renvyle House Hotel and in nearby Tully village. Locating the house would be easier if its name was displayed outside.

We were really pleased with Cartwheel Cottage. It was spotlessly clean and well kitted out. A short drive away is a spectacular beach and also the little village of Letterfrack. It's a great base to explore Co. Galway and Connemara National Park is 10 minutes drive. The owners of the cottage live next door and they left us some groceries and home made bread and jam which was delicious. They were welcoming and always on hand to help but never intrusive. We can definitely recommend Cartwheel Cottage.
