Located on an island in the heart of Connemara, attached to the mainland, is Gorumna House. It is set on 35 acres and adjoins the completely separate Gorumna Cottage. Just an hour from Galway City or from Clifden (in the other direction), this is a location like no other and ideal for exploring all that this magical part of Ireland has to offer.
The House has a private entrance door and parking area. It can sleep up to 8 people in four double bedrooms, three of which are ensuite and the fourth which has access to the main bathroom.
You enter into the foyer of the house. There is a double bedroom downstairs with an ensuite with shower. The main sitting room is large and luxurious yet comfy and cosy and features two couches, a TV and a wood burning stove. There is another double bedroom downstairs too which is ensuite.
The kitchen is bright and modern and has all the appliances and equipment you will need during your stay. There is a laundry room to the rear of the house with has both a washing machine and tumble dryer.
There is another seating area downstairs with a TV and a two seater couch and armchair which is ideal if some of your guests want some time away from the rest.
The remaining two bedrooms are upstairs. The master double is ensuite with a shower and the other room has a smaller double bed in it and while not ensuite, it has access to the main bathroom with feature bath in it across the hall.
The closest beach is just a 3 minute drive or a 15 to 20 minute walk away. The beach is called Trá Mór which translates to Big Beach. This is a lovely sandy beach perfect for swimming and you can dive off the rocks when the tide is in.

It is important to note that children would need to be supervised at the front of the property as it is right beside the road, however they have acres of space behind to explore on their bikes or on foot – it would be perfect for creating little adventures!
The adjoining Gorumna Cottage has a full time resident living in it but it has its own separate entrance door and parking area and is entirely separate from the main house.
