Perched on the tip of the stunning Renvyle Peninsula, Castle Cottage enjoys spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Mayo coastline in the distnace. Situated just a stone’s through away from the shoreline, the cottage gets its name due its close proximity to the ruins of a beautiful 13-14th castle, known as O’Flaherty castle, where the famous pirate queen herself, Granuaile Ni Mhaille, once resided. This five-bedroom cottage oozes traditional charm throughout, with full advantage being take off amazing sea views from the open plan kitchen/living space. The house sits on a site of circa 0.32 acre, with parking to the rear. This unique property is almost exactly where one’s thoughts drift too when dreaming of a coastal cottage in Connemara, with the added magic of a castle ruin outside your window. An amazing opportunity not to be missed!
