Gelegen in het hart van de Lough Cutra Castle Estate in het zuiden van Galway drie bed huis werd gebouwd tijdens de Grote Hongersnood van 1846. Het werd omgebouwd tot woonruimte in de jaren 1920 door de Gough Familie die uit Lough Cutra Kasteel verhuisde op dat moment. Het huisje weerspiegelt hun levensstijl met houten vloeren in de hele begane grond, evenals een marmeren open haard in de grote woonkamer. Er is voldoende zitplaatsen voor maximaal zeven gasten rond de eettafel en in de woonkamer. Er is een volledig uitgeruste en ingerichte keuken en aangrenzende bijkeuken. Twee van de slaapkamers zijn tweepersoonskamers (een met eigen douche) en de derde slaapkamer is een tweeling. De badkamer boven heeft een bad en douche.
We were quite pleased with our time in Conmorant Cottage. The cottage is huge, especially for three people. We had a ton of space! The kitchen had all of the conveniences. Since we were left with a welcome basket of a dozen fresh eggs, butter, bread, milk, juice, and fruit, we made good use of it all on our first night in the cottage. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer so we were able to take care of laundry in the cottage. Beds were quite comfortable and we all slept well during our stay.
The estate is charming and we wandered around daily, hiking around. There are horses and donkeys, who are quite friendly.
We had a lovely stay at Conmorant Cottage.
My husband & I visited Ireland to celebrate my 50th birthday. Our son gave the trip to us as a birthday gift. (Thank you, Kyle!)
First of all, as we drove up to the gates, I felt like I was driving onto the set of "Beauty & the Beast." The castle entrance & gates were amazing. As we took the road through the woods & fields, a sense of magic settled upon us. (Well, it IS Ireland!)
One can imagine the clock turning backward in time as the castle & outer houses appear.
We were greeted by a polite young man who showed us our cottage. We were shocked at how large it was.
The cottage was very well kept, clean and comfortable. We felt like we had stepped back in time. I kept saying to my husband," Honey, there's a castle in our back yard!"
The central location to all the areas we wanted to visit was perfect. I would recommend this rental to couples who want a quiet get-away.
Thank you, Edward, for a wonderful vacation home.
Found on the internet, we knew what to expect, but in reality this was even better. Great place for a getaway, as you come to rest once you enter the gates of the castle grounds. But than again not just in the middle of nowwhere, as the great spots in Co. Galway and Co. Clare can be explored within 2 hours drive. The house was full of charm, furniture and house were a perfect fit to feel at ease and yet something different than the usual B&B. Kids played outside on the lawn and in the woodland, whilst we finished another book and another bottled of wine. Truely one of the highlights of our visit to Ireland
Excellente semaine dans ce cottage. Belle demeure et parc magnifique, dans lequel il fait bon flaner et découvrir son chateau, son lac, ses arbres, ses faisans, ....
Bien situé, le lieu peut servir de base pour la visite du Burren et du Connemara.
Un grand merci à Mr et mme Somerville pour leur acceuil.
Spacious cottage with lots of things to discover inside (pieces of old furniture & pictures) and on the estate (horses, cattle, pheasants, castle, lake and more).
Garden and estate are very well maintained by Ed and his wife, who are managing the estate with their team. The view from outside the cottage to the castle and lake at sunset is superb. And for grey rainy days or an evening with a glass of good wine and an interesting book the big old fireplace is a treasure.
Very well located for beautiful daytrips by car to the Cliffs of Moher, "the Burren", Bunratty Castle, the City of Galway, and more. In nearby Gort you will find supermarkets, shops and a couple' nice restaurants.
There are no words to describe how fantastic my stay was. I came alone to plan my wedding on the property and cannot believe how helpful everyone at LC was. I can definitely say that this stay was the best of all my previous travels. Even though I had visited many places in the world, I have never gotten such unbelievable experience. I felt like a dear guest rather than a client. The amazing warm reception I was given can be only compared to the way your close friends treat you, people who truly care about you. Personal attention was given to everything.
The experience of my stay was truly magical starting with the gorgeous drive on the property to the fairy tale setting of the cottage near the castle. Actually, the top quality experience started months before when I first sent my enquiry. The helpfulness of the manager was absolutely astounding. His patience and attention to details clearly showed how much he cares about guests. I could not have found a better place to have our wedding with 70+ people attending from 12 countries. I happened to visit Ireland during the worst flood people can remember. Due to road closures, for hours I was not able to get back to the cottage the next day after I arrived. Around 10 pm I got a text message from the manager hoping that everything is ok. I found it disarming that somebody cared. How many hotels worry about your wellbeing? Nothing on the property felt like a hotel or a room for hire. Everything is designed for a guest to relax and have a good time. I was prepared that I will spend 10 days working on the wedding plans under a lot of stress in the country I had never been before… Instead, I made friends, had a fantastic vacation, got things done and feel even more excited about next summer. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property for one’s next vacation. Besides fantastic location you will get to experience great hospitality that rarely found in touristy places. You will learn something about yourself and will leave with a few more friends. My whole experience felt surreal. I have not had many things in life that exceeded my expectations to the extent that the experience at LC gave me. The value for the money was unbelievable. You really cannot put price on something like that. I feel very excited and lucky that I was able to find such a gorgeous and sincere place for my wedding guests to stay next summer. I know that I will be back more, much more than ones:) Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
