Stay In This Beautifully Restored Stone Cottage Next To The Beach In Connemara From €164 Per Night

All kinds of want!


Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying our recent travel series that’s shining the spotlight on some of the most unique places to stay across our little island.

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve looked at:

  • This Donegal Cabin Is The Cosy Hideaway In The Hills That I Need In My Life (have a peek here)
  • Live Like Harry Potter in this Gorgeous Old Castle in Clare from €140 per Night (see it here)
  • A Gooorgeous Treehouse in West Cork With its own Private Hot Tub (check it out here)
  • A hillpod in the hills of Donegal fit for a hobbit king (see it here)
  • Some insanely picturesque glamping in Portsalon (check it out here)

Today, we’re heading out to Connemara in Galway to check out a magnificently restored stone cottage.

That’s right next to a beach!

All. Kinds. Of. Want.

This cottage is literally METERS from a beach.

About the cottage

I tend to get a little over-excited when I come across (or get sent – leave a comment below if you’ve a great AirBnB to recommend) a place to stay in Ireland that’s unique or quirky.

This place is definitely unique.

Folan’s Cottage in Connemara is a beautiful designed holiday home that was rebuilt in 2010 from two ruined stone cottages.

Take a look inside!

Old school on the outside, and insanely stylish on the inside.

Views for days

The cottage is just a few meters from a wonderful quiet sandy beach, and boasts views of the Twelve Bens and across the ocean to the Arann Islands.

According to the hosts, ‘The setting is magical and remote with just rabbits, sheep and Connemara ponies as your neighbours.’

Fancy staying here?

The cottage sleeps 6-7 people and can only be rented by the week.

This makes it the perfect place for those of you in search of a place for a quiet staycation, or for those of you who fancy exploring Connemara and its surroundings for a week, and are in need of a nice basecamp.

That’s a wrap. Have a great AirBnB or rental to recommend? Let me know in the comments below.
