No 1 Barracks Road Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This charming semi-detached townhouse offers accommodation for up to five people, and enjoys spectacular views across the stunning coastline. The sitting room has a wonderfully cosy feel, added to by its traditional open fire and picture window. Other accommodation includes one double and one family bedroom and a kitchen with dining area. Outside of the property, visitors can enjoy a seating area ideal for dining al fresco, as well as many walks throughout the area, beginning just moments from the cottage. Within a 5 minute drive is a secluded, sandy beach, and within 15 minutes drive, a coral beach.

Located on a small island in the south west corner of County Galway, the pretty village of Lettermore, on the Wild Atlantic Way by Bord Failte, is connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway. Home to a welcoming Irish pub, a small convenience store and traditional butcher's shop, this village is situated in an area where the Irish language is still widely spoken. With incredibly picturesque surroundings, this is a wonderful place for walkers, cyclists and ramblers. The countryside is full of coves, beaches and inlets to explore and boasts great opportunities for sailing, fishing and scuba diving. The Connemara National Park is also within easy driving distance, whilst the renowned Aran Islands are located just off the coast in Galway Bay.

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.

There was nothing I had to bring or buy except food and drink. Other places had no clock, just a few towels, no heat except for a fireplace, no kleenix, and the only thing I wish it had was internet (a scarcity all of my 6 weeks). This was by far the best accommodation that I had in 5 weeks.

We had a fabulous time here. The cottage is lovely and has everything you need including a hairdryer. There were many thoughtful items to be used including tea & coffee - even some slippers! If you forget anything don't worry because the owner has probably thought of it and provided it for you. The cottage is in a very picturesque place and you can be as active or as relaxed as you like. Plenty of car parking and garden area for the children to play in and even the dog next door is so friendly and loves playing with the kids (he was lovely and we had no concern with him spending time with the children he never gave any cause for concern). The owners of the local shop were very friendly and went out of their way to help. Apart from the shop the cottage is a little distance from amenities but this didn't bother us, must admit the footpaths are in part non existent so not so good for small children. The cottage is well placed for accessing other activities although beware Lettermore is not actually signposted Lettermore it is signposted by the Irish name Leitir Moir. The road numbers don't always tally either so do your research first. Not for people who like to be in busy places but perfect for those who like peace and tranquillity in beautiful surroundings. Last but not least the owner is a lovely person and nothing is too much trouble. Enjoy the open fire - it's bliss

Everything worked, I needed nothing extra to get, the cut roses in the vase were awesome, and the view was fabulous.

The cottage was in very close proximity to the local shop, which had very friendly shop keepers. The cottage had everything we needed as well as a hairdryer, which was a lovely touch as we had forgotten ours. The scenery from was beautiful and so relaxing; we could be as active or as relaxed as we wanted to be. It was safe for the kids to play outside. I would recommend this holiday to anyone who likes quiet, peaceful places.

We have just returned home from a family holiday to Lettermore. We have previously stayed in this house and again enjoyed every minute of it. The house is a fantastic base for exploring the area, situated close to the shops, pubs and main roads. It has all the amenities needed in a comfortable house perfectly suited to a small family or couples. The owner of the house, ensured that all was OK throughout our stay and we look forward to staying here again.

Beautiful area just the right distance from the Aran Islands and Galway City. Great golf course just a few mile walk away. The property owners were extremely considerate and made sure that there was nothing missing.
