Our recently renovated 200 year old cottage is set in a secluded area 2km from Cong, a heritage site with church ruins and Ashford Castle (a 5 star hotel), which has extensive gardens, forset and lake shore walks.
Cong has a number of christian monastic ruins. In the village you will find some charming cafes, pubs which serve food, small specialist shops and art galleries.

Cong is also one of the gateways to Connamara, with its wild and rugged beauty. Nearby is Ballinrobe Golf Club. Ireland West Airport has daily lights to Dublin and the UK.
