Exceptional Lodge with stunning views and frontage onto Lough Emlaghnbehy, superbly located between Clifden and Ballyconneely.
Derrygimlagh Lodge is approached up a gravel drive with the stunning lake on the right. The
original Lodge dates back to the mid 1800s and has been delightfully extended and refurbished.
The entire property now offers bright, spacious and comfortably arranged accommodation
designed to maximise the panoramic views across the lake. The large drawing room, kitchen and
master bedroom all have large picture windows overlooking the lake and islands one of which is
home to nesting herons and to watch the ever changing landscape. The property enjoys extensive
lake frontage and is a haven for wildlife.
To the rear of the house accessed through the large sunroom is an amazing original walled garden which provides year-round shelter, nearly impossible to find in Connemara. With a delightful lily pond, beautiful Liscanor stone terraces, a wonderful array of roses, planted beds, a vegetable garden and various fruit trees this tranquil and private setting contrasts with the expansive seaview to the front. There is the added benefit of a large workshop tucked in behind the gardens.
Derrigimlagh has been appointed as one of just fifteen 'Breathtaking Sites' along the famous 2,500 km Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland's west coast. The Lodge is situated at the foot of one of Ireland's most beautiful walks, through the spectacular blanket bog, a stunning mosaic of tiny lakes and peat, and taking in two sites of intenational historical significance: the site where Alcock and Brown landed their plane after the first ever transatlantic flight and the atmospheric Marconi Radio Station.
