Peaceful Druid cottage with internet, holiday, romance, adventure or work

  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom


'Druid Cottage' is a small self catering cottage that is part of my property situated on a beautiful scenic hillside near Shannon, Galway, Limerick and just a one hour drive to the spectacular Wild Atlantic way coastline. Secluded among rolling hills, this welcoming natural stone cottage gets it's name from it's town-land name Glendree, which means 'Glen of Druids'
It's ideal for a quick break away, holiday or even work such as writing, blogging, painting or photography. Those who are working also need a break, so a quick trip out to visit a place of interest or an even quicker walk up the hill to refresh, is always good
Although I live beside the cottage I respect my guests privacy, you might occasionally see me and for lone travelers, you have the comfort of knowing that you are not entirely alone, on this calm country hillside
Druí cottage has a well equipped kitchen, is open plan with a loft space bedroom; please take note of the rustic and securely fixed wooden ladder as seen in the photos. The bed is a comfortable mattress on the floor as the height of a full bed would be too near the ceiling. There is also a single bed downstairs with extra linens and bedding in cupboard
The bathroom is in a separate room and the kitchen is in the main room which has a high airy ceiling
There is a welcome basket of tea, coffee, scones, butter & jam, the usual condiments and fresh water on tap from a natural spring well. Organic seasonal vegetables can be found on a stall just across the road, run on trust, you just put the money in an honesty box on the table
Broadband Internet is installed in the cottage at no extra cost. The heating is SOLID FUEL with fuel supplied at no extra cost, hairdryer and iron too. However the option of an electric heater and washing machine does cost extra per stay, this is because many guests do not require these facilities and I feel it's fair not to include it in the general fee
The kitchen has a small stock of tea, coffee, sugar, spices and oil so that you can enjoy a home cooked meal without having to buy all those little necessary ingredients
If you are arriving late in the day with no time for a grocery shop, you can email me a list of items in advance and I will be happy to pick up what is required
In the nearby area there are many scenic walks, music, horse riding, fishing, golf, restaurants and local pubs to enjoy
I work from home designing and handcrafting landscape inspired knitwear and accessories in pure natural yarns that are super soft and kind to sensitive skin. My guests enjoy a 15%

PS. During the winter season this cottage is available for long term letting with an agreed price. Contact for more information
