THE BEST holiday cottage in Ireland, located on the Doorus Peninsula in Cornamona, Co. Galway, could be yours to own for €259,000.
That was the view of Image Magazine and it’s hard to argue with them, given the rustic beauty of this thatched cottage and its surroundings on the northern side of Lough Corrib.
Sitting bang in the middle of the Joyce Country Mountain and Lake Districts, the property is situated in the Gaeltacht in one of the most scenic areas of Ireland.
This house, situated on a one acre site, consists of three en suite bedrooms, each finished with French pine timber floors and pine ceilings, while the beamed ceilings inside complement the rustic charm of the thatched roof above.
The large, traditional living room comes with a feature fireplace in Liscannor stone, the floor finished likewise.
There is also a fully-fitted pine kitchen and dining room, study, bathroom and conservatory, which boasts spectacular panoramic views.
You can also enjoy those views of the lough from a spacious roof terrace, which has a separate paved stairwell leading to a mature garden.
The Cornamona property is situated 30 minutes’ drive from Knock Airport, 45 minutes from Galway City and 35 minutes from Westport, while the beautiful Ashford Castle is only a 20-minute spin away.
The cottage is on the market for €259,000.
