Great location to explore Connemara

Oak Lodge is a contemporary bungalow overlooking Ballinakill Lake which lies between Cleggan and Letterfrack in the town-land of Moyard. Just around the corner is the beautiful Ardkyle Beach, or Ross Beach as the locals like to call it. A great area for walking there are some lovely loop-walks from the doorstep, and your own mountain (hill) to climb at the back of the house. The view from the top is amazing.

There is history in abundance here! Ballinakill grave yard is the resting place of Oliver St John Gogarty the famous poet and writer. The house itself was once rented by Garrett Fitzgerald who was Taoiseach from 1981-1987.
The house has been recently renovated and presents a peaceful and comfortable atmosphere nothing more relaxing than sitting watching the ever changing colours over the lake or taking the binoculars and seeing the otters playing and the fish jumping. If you like to fish for brown trout of an evening look no further. For those of you who enjoy food this is the best place to source good fish and then cook it in the well equipped kitchen! Or you might want to spend the day collecting shell fish or playing in the rock pools on any of the many beaches close by such as Cleggan Beach or Omey Strand. An ideal location for Hikers, and artists will find the colours and light in the area fascinating. Once have visited Oak Lodge you will want to come back again and again. This property is suitable for rental all year around.

Inside there is a large open plan kitchen diner and sitting-room area which is bright and Airy, Separate utility area with side door. Fridge, freezer, dishwasher, tumble dryer and washing machine, a five ring gas hob and two fan ovens. There are lots of cooking utensils and the kitchen is well thought out. Leading from the dining area into a hall there is shower room, a twin bedroom and a small cosy sitting room cassette style solid fuel fire. Upstairs two bright and airy king size bedrooms and a bathroom with bath which services both bedrooms.

Lovely cottage
We really enjoyed our stay, the house is light and airy, well-insulated and thoughtfully furnished and well-equipped. The situation and outlook were delightful. We felt very lucky to have chosen it and would love to come again.
