The Cottage is based on a little farm with ponies, horses, pigs and hens in Letterfrack village. Letterfrack is a small but lively village overlooked by the Diamond mountain in the most beautiful part of unspoilt Connemara. The cottage is ideally located beside mountains and sea offering great hillwalking and crystal clear sea and white sands. After a days activity or sight seeing it is a short stroll to the village for a drink and a meal in one of three pubs or restaurants and to listen to some traditional Irish music. Connemara National Park is also based in Letterfrack village a few minutes walk from the house. There is a walkers path all the way to the top of diamond Mountain (one of the 12 Bens) which offers great views out to sea and over to Mayo. There is an interpretive centre and tearoom at the base of the mountain walk and this is also the starting point of other walks. Boat trips can be taken from the pier in Letterfrack. Letterfrack has a good supermarket, butcher and post-office.

Other Activities: Dive center and adventure center nearby.
