ECO ' Cuach Cottage ' Truly an outstanding traditional family owned Connemara Cottage. Dwelling is a delight to vacation in. Lovingly restored and looked after by Liam and Marian.

Away from it all, yet within easy access / walking distance to the finest eating establishments. Superior shopping is available in Clifden, the capital of Connemara.

The cottage has interesting internal items & build details, ie, 3 ft thick walls vernacular 100 yrs old.

Set on 4 acres of gardens, [16,000 sq. mtrs.] and fenced paddocks is approached by way of a 100 mtr. driveway sets the scene, all natural terrain of course.

Close to Connemara National Park:

Enjoy !!! Liam & Marian.

Knock Airport. Knock is approx 120 mins. drive to Cuach Cottage.

Interesting 'Cuach Cottage': Constructed from local stone using local skills and dry bedding technique. Some internal walls are 3 ft. wide whilst others are 2 ft.

It has a conventional pitched slated roof which is now highly insulated.

To the rear, their remains the shell of a stone constructed sheep's pen. Livestock would have been housed close to the dwelling back in the day.

Al Fresco Dining: To the rear of the cottage is an elevated 8 seater outdoor dining set. Set upon a traditional pebbled and fenced patio area. BBQ here on a summer's day and you are in heaven, beautiful fresh water river running alongside, 12 Ben Mountain range so close you feel you could touch them, natural lake land and Connemara terrain right in front of you. Your outstanding views are not obstructed !! To the front of the cottage we have located a 6 seater dining bench. This offers the visitor a choice of 2 outdoor dining locations. Best of both worlds, as the sun moves from East to West. Located in the garden and beside the fresh water river is a 3 seater hand made bench where one can while away some hours, reading, sketching or indeed just taking in the scenery.

Inside the traditional fireplace is 'inglenook' type, however, this has been converted to suit a wood burning stove. In days gone by all family meals were cooked over this hearth.

Local harvested turf was the common source of fuel . The fire would sit directly on the floor in traditional manner using all the skills necessary to maintain it, lighting 24 hours per day. Most homesteads had their own plot of bog land. Plots till exist to this day alongside.

We have installed a hand crafted entrance door, 1/2 by 1/2 last year made by a local craftsman, thanks Pat.

Interior fixtures, some from Count De Vesci's estate in Laois are present in 'Cuach Cottage'

Peaceful and beautiful
We were looking for a break from our whirlwind iriish schedule and this cottage was ideal. We ate a few home cooked meals and ate at 3 lovely Clifden restaurants- We loved stumbling on to the yacht side restaurant with increfible views. Cozy clean and sunny-even when it rained. Which it will!!

Beautiful traditional cottage
We arrived on a blowy wet evening after a magnificent drive through the dramatic landscape of Connemara . Completely tired in a good way . When we found our cottage, opened the gate and saw what we had hoped for. Just opening the front door to a fire that just had to be lit and seeing how lovely and warm the cottage was rejuvenated us. The bedrooms are light and cosy and lovely - beds were very comfortable . But now to the most magnificent view from back kitchen room with three wrap around windows with views of the 12 bens . The dining room and kitchen completely new and modern and a comfortable sitting area at the other end . I didn’t want to leave and it was a wonderful experience . Thank you to Liam and Marian . From Olwen and Cian

Beautiful Connemara Cottage
We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. The location is great - a short drive to the town, and very peaceful with fantastic views from the back of the cottage. The whole place has a lovely feel - really nice decor, and we lit the fire one night which was great. Thanks!

Wonderful cottage to stay while you roam the area
A beautiful cottage, wonderful view, with a private piece of river which has to be seen to be believed. Would definitely return.
