Set in a quiet, tranquil country location, not far from the shores of Lough Corrib, this most attractive residence blends the charm of an authentic Traditional Irish Thatch cottage with  modern comforts and conveniences.

The property is approached via a pebbled driveway with stone walls on either side and lawns to the rear and fore, with well established landscaping and limestone features.

The original cottage would date from about 250 years past, and is said to be the oldest cottage in the district. It was lived in by successive generations of the same family up to 1972 when the present owners bought it and carried out the many improvements to make it the comfortable home it is now.

The cottage would have been a well known meeting house in times gone by, with many local people  recalling dancing and card parties there.  It seems it was a central gathering place for the area.

The property has a very interesting history.

The Thatch was replaced this year.
