Luxury Cottage for rental in roundstone galway

Whale Harbour Cottage - A Luxury Beach Front Home Rental in Connemara

5-star luxury self-catering rental accommodation does not reach higher levels than those achieved in this unique owner built and designed stone cottage. Luxury rental properties in the west of Ireland & on the Wild Atlantic Way rarely come with such high levels of comfort. Built on a 5-acre site leading to the beaches of Gurteen bay renowned for their turquoise tides & golden sands. This tranquil setting is amazingly only two kilometres from Roundstone village.

Whale Harbour Cottage is located at the foot of Errisbeg mountain where the garden slopes to the shores of Gurteen Bay and the quaint old fishing harbour from which the property derives its name. The property has been in the same family for 2 generations and was rebuilt in 2013 by the current owners. The entire house was built from stone which was sourced from the site on which the house and gardens stand. The owners have a history of 60 plus years visiting the area and their love of the locality is demonstrated in the presentation of this exquisite holiday home. A five-minute coastal walk from the house takes you to the golden miles of white sandy beaches of Gurteen and Dogs Bay.

The owners have 60-year-old childhood memories of the area and guests have spoken of how they wish to make their own special family memories in the property on return visits. Guests have renewed marriage vows nearby and the traditional feel achieved in this modern build lends itself to a warm homely atmosphere regardless of season.
