The Boathouse Cottages, (Delphi Estate) Connemara, Co.Galway
There are five delightful holiday cottages on the Delphi Estate. The cottages are just a short walk away from Delphi Lodge and are all attractively located in this valley of staggering beauty. The local wildlife, featuring otters, badgers, pine martens, peregrine falcons and myriad of wild flowers, is exceptional. The cottages, being surrounded by some of the highest mountains in the west of Ireland, are also popular with hill-walkers, artists and those in search of a quiet hideaway.
A charming L-shaped terrace of four two-bedroom holiday cottages derives from an attractive conversion of the old “keeper’s house” and the adjacent Delphi Boathouses. With old pine furniture, large open fireplaces and stone floors downstairs, these fine old houses have a charming air of tradition and cosiness. But they also have all the requirements of modern living including a well-equipped kitchen, comprehensive heating, a shower and a bathtub, comfortable sofas & chairs, a large airing cupboard and full carpeting upstairs. Two of the Boathouse cottages sleep up to five people with a triple room (double bed and single) and a twin room (two single beds). The other two Boathouse Cottages are a little smaller and sleep up to four people in a double room and a twin room.
Along with the four Boathouse cottages there is also a larger cottage available on the Delphi Estate, Wrens Cottage
