  • Christmas & New Year @ "Cuach Cottage".

    "Cuach Cottage" through the seasons is just as magical as one can get. Experience this rated, Failte Ireland home at it's very best. Beautiful walks, stunning mountain terrain, faboulous lakes and of course the traditional local seasonal athmosphere only Connemara can offer.

    We have enjoyed 20 successive 5 star guest ratings over the past few years.


    Last year the "Salt Lake" was completely frozen over and the reflection from the ice was just so striking. This is a tidal lake used by the Kyakers and is within strolling distance of our cottage.

    Cuach is perfect for "Chilling Out ", most definitely. Relax beside the wood burning stove, enjoy a glass of port or fine wine, cook the Turkey / Goose, observe our friendly Fox close up, just have a great time and recharge your batteries.

    Enjoy the tasty sea food offered in nearly every eating establishment, visit Kylemore Abbey, Sky Road, Connemara National Park or just lounge around in a castle enjoying a wonderful coffee and fresh mince pies.

    Ballinahinch Castle is closeby, as is the Abbeyglen, just fantastic at this time of the year.

    Guests are spoilt for solitude and choice this Christmas at "Cuach Cottage",

    A "Big Welcome" awaits: from Liam & Marian




  • January 2017 Review by Louis.

    This place is just perfect! It is hard to find such comfort and taste in such a rural location in Ireland. None of the original charm has been lost in the renovation. The cottage is really warm and damp free with the stove and very efficient central heating. Beds are so comfortable with lovely bed linen and everything is very tastefully thought out. The location is second to none, surrounded by peace and tranquillity and your own river to explore. The kitchen is really well equipped including a lovely espresso machine and all mod cons. Great for a cook. We would love to go back.

    First review of 2017 posted on AirBnb. Thank you Louis see you in June, Liam.
