Connemara Holiday Lettings is proud to present Salmon Cottage.

Salmon Cottage is a family home with beautiful views of Cashel Bay and the Atlantic coast.

Just off the Wild Atlantic Way, the house is designed to make the most of the magical light and breathtaking wilderness of this far European shore.

Set over one floor, the house is light and airy and perfect for children or groups of all ages.

Tucked away from public view and with its private, unimpeded, access to the seashore, this is a perfect location for fun, excitement and relaxation.

Lettercaumus is situated on a secluded promontory which forms one side of Cashel Bay. About 15 minutes drive from the beautiful fishing village of Roundstone, the area is home to many of the families who have fished and farmed this rugged coastline for centuries.

Beaches, mountains and miles of quiet roads provide opportunities for enjoying the sea, climbing, hiking or cycling. Go surfing, fishing, swimming, horse riding nearby, or enjoy a round of golf at the Connemara Championship course at Ballyconneely.

Clifden, the capital of Connemara, is about 30 minutes drive away, with award-winning pubs, bars, galleries, restaurants and shops. Here, you can enjoy the area’s riches in style.

Free WiFi. Pets welcome. Cot/high chair/toys for young children available.

Open the back doors, chill on the patio or take a 10 sec walk down to the sea for some swimming, kayaking etc If you love water sports this place is unreal for kayaking right out into the bay .. simply perfect. The house itself is big and really well laid out with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room and kitchen.
