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.

Local Info

The sea, islands, coastline, mountains and towns offer distractions for all ages and abilities.
There are plenty of walks from the house itself, either along the bay or up Cashel Mountain. Or you can head out to climb the Bens, explore the coast near Ballyconneely or amble through Roundstone and Clifden.
Connemara’s unique peat bog and mountains provide stunning walks, expansive views and plenty of interest for nature-lovers.

Ballynahinch Hotel has a number of maintained walks through its grounds which take you past fishing beats, through woodland and along the Ballynahinch river. You can relax over an afternoon tea in the hotel afterwards.

  • Salmon cottage is a special place indeed. We were delighted with all aspects of our stay! We will be back! Ciara Dec 2020
  • We had a wonderful stay in Salmon cottage. It is in a stunning setting on the Cashel coastline in beautiful Connemara. The house is extremely well equipped, including board games, jigsaws, Monopoly, Scrabble and beach toys, for a busy family break. It is very much a home away from home. It is very spacious and comfortably sleeps eight people. The grounds of the house sweep down to the sea and the overall setting is very calm and peaceful. There is plenty to do in the immediate area, including picturesque Roundstone, Ballyconneely, Gurteen beach and Clifden are all within a short drive. Cashel Hill is nearby and provides a nice walk in the morning.-Lauren September 2020
  • A sweet little comfy hidey hole In Connemara -“We arrived to a lovely view of the bay…a warm house as Morgan (local), had put the heat on and left us a very substantial welcome pack, with plenty of tea, coffee, milk and even a lovely soda bread, butter and jams. We spent 4 lovely nights and days just chilling. The hound loved it too and was tuned into the surroundings by his 2nd day and happy to roam down the back as far as the stones to the sea shore would allow, (under his Mama’s watchful eye of course!) All the beds were really solid and comfortable with lovely linen, plenty of towels as well. The boot room at the front door was a great idea as we obviously got soaked on more than one walk! So the cupboard for drying is a great idea and stuff gets turned around really quickly. It’s like a large ‘Flately’ dryer of old, if anyone remembers them!! The kitchen was stocked with pretty much everything you would need in terms of glasses, crocks and pots and pans. There was plenty of staples in the cupboard for cooking regarding oils and even some baking staples if you were so inclined! We normally always bake a birthday cake when we are away for my birthday but someone was on strike this year! I still got cake from a lovely cafe in Clifden. Delicious! The views are amazing from the cottage and we had a great evening Day 2, as the day was so bright and sunny, watching the sun go down, drinking sun downers and waiting for stars to come out for my birthday, after a long walk at Dogs Bay, Roundstone. The stars didn’t disappoint, what a magnificent display! No light pollution so on a clear light you get the Ireland of old … displaying every wonder the night sky has to offer. Beautiful. I am sure in November shooting stars would be visible too. The back terrace makes a lovely sun trap too as we discovered that morning at breakfast. Very sheltered and warm. Inside, there is a good size lounge separate to the kitchen / dining area, with lots of comfy seats and sofas and a big open fire. (The house almost completely faces the ocean bay views). Get plenty of logs as it takes a few to get it really pumping. Also an open fire in the kitchen too, a little hard to light this one. I would say the draft isn’t as good so get some firelighters, we kept forgetting them at the shop! The house is old, but very nicely and relatively newly done inside with 4 good sized beds and 2 bathrooms. The outside doesn’t do it justice really. Inside it is light, airy, yet cosy… it has the feel of an artists hideaway… which I believe it may have been. If you want a little bit of peace and quiet, read a book, paint, potter, or just watch the landscape change as the weather does, this is a lovely place to stay.” – Caroline March 2020
  • Salmon Cottage is a delight, spectacular views, good location and a sparkling clean cottage. Blissfully comfy bed, snuggly warm duvets (important) when on holiday in November! The house is so welcoming, comfy and very well equipped – great for families or a group of friends. Looking forward to visiting again.-Bun November 2019
  • Direkt am Wasser mit sehr schönem Ausblick über die Bucht. Ferienhaus wurde vor kurzem renoviert.-Rico October 2019
