The Cottage: Gowla cottage is just 10km away from the lovely village of Carna at the beginning of a large peninsula. It is located in a Gaeltacht area which means that the locals speak the Irish language but don’t worry they also speak English. A great place for walking or for a quiet relaxed holiday the area has changed little in the last number of years and retains the charm that rural Ireland was once famous for.The cottage is located up a quiet boreen with stunning views of the surrounding area. It is real hidden gem with all mod cons while also having that lovely cottage feel. You will need a car but this is a great location for discovering all of Connemara and the peninsula itself has many hidden beaches for you to explore.Carna Village has a hotel, shop church and a few pubs that also serve great food – we recommend the steaks in Tigh Mheac. Cashel House hotel & Zetland Country House Hotel are just 6km away if you fancied a meal or to enjoy their gardens. Perfect spot for salmon and trout fishing, just a short distance from lough Inagh, Derryclare and Ballynahinch.Inside: This newly renovated cottage has everything you could need.
