About the Property

3 bedrooms, one ensuite and one bathroom with spa bath . Sleeps 6.

This beautiful cottage is set in a stunning location with views all around to the 12 Bens Mountains and onto the Owenglen River. It is situated on three hundred acres of mountain yet is only two miles from Clifden town which has a great range of shops and restaurants.
The Old Fishing Lodge is a spacious cottage with a lovely old style sitting/dining room with open fire. This leads to the well-equipped kitchen and out to a walled in patio area. There are two bedrooms and bathroom downstairs and a third bedroom and bathroom upstairs that are accessed by a spiral staircase. All rooms are decorated and maintained to a very high standard. Including spa bath, ideal to relax after a days hillwalking.
The local area has a lot to offer from white sandy beaches, sailing, fishing, golf, hill walking and a variety of visitor attractions all within a couple of mile radius of the cottage. The cottage is a great place to relax and enjoy the surrounding scenery.


Guest Book: ' reluctant to leave the beautiful quiet and the vistas that look like a romantic painting come to life. We've become fond of the sheep (though we suspect they are indifferent to us). The moon rose full last night. Clear over the mountains, and we had our tea outside, relishing the stillness. Thank you Mr.Walsh for your tips on hillwalking spots.
Thank you for allowing us to share an unforgettable week in this special spot. We hope to return.' 6 March 2004 Tracey Schelmetic, Connecticut, USA.


'We had an excellent time. Ye Old Fishing Lodge' is a perfect base for exploring Connemara, but it is also very enjoyable to just stay at home and listen to the sheep passing by.'
Sept 5, 2003. Martyn Engelsman.

The Old Fishing Lodge is in scenic Connemara. The property has stunning views onto the 12 Bens Mountains which can be easily walked from the cottage. The Owenglen River which is overlooked by cottage is a great fishing river , a short walk from house. The cottage is situated on several hundred acres of private mountain land which you are free to roam.

This is the most scenic part of beautiful Connemara. There are some lovely beaches near the house towards Ballyconnelly and Cleggan. Clifden 'the capital of Connemara' is only two miles away. Clifden has a variety of good restaurants offering great seafood and lively pubs where the best of Irish traditional music can be heard.

There is a good 18 hole golf course near-by in Ballyconnelly. There is a sailing and water sports center in Clifden as well deep-sea fishing. A diving centre and adventure centre are within 10 miles of cottage.

Other Activities: Dive center and Adventure center 30 minutes drive away.
