Property description

Heron Cottage

Heron Cottage is a five star property situated on a very private secluded and tranquil peninsula that extends into Galway Bay but at the same time is located just minutes from the local pub, award winning seafood restaurant, Russell art gallery and pottery shop.
In the local pub which is only minutes away you can enjoy a pint in the company of the locals and be assured of a very warm welcome while enjoying the traditional music session. Around the corner at the pier you can buy the latest catch of the day and various shellfish from Martina the local fisherman’s wife to take back to Heron Cottage for your lunch or evening meal.
It is situated midway (10 minutes) between the beautiful coastal villages of Kinvarra in Co Galway and Ballyvaughan in Co Clare.

While on the Flaggy Shore you will come across a small sandy beach suitable for swimming, the Martello tower and Lough Murree a freshwater lake which is home to a vast amount of bird life ranging from swans, ducks, geese and other migratory bird where you will have the opportunity to share in the sounds of the singing seagulls, cries of the curlew and the colourful puffins at the shores edge, which is separated from the sea only by the width of the flaggy shore and is a photographers paradise.
