This traditional stone built lodge, situated on an elevated site at the foot of the Twelve Bens Mountains in Glencoaghan Valley, Recess, Connemara is a popular property for those seeking a peaceful retreat yet still in the heart of the most beautiful part of Connemara.   The valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is an ideal base for walking and for touring the Connemara region. Local activities include walks from the door, hill climbing, lake and river angling.

Each window in this attractive hideaway cottage is like a painting, such are the views of the surrounding mountains and countryside.  The large living/dining room has a wood burning stove, and comfortable sofas.   The kitchen is well equipped with all necessary equipment. There are 3 bedrooms to sleep 6 people, 1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom and shower and 2 twin rooms.  The family bathroom includes bath with overhead shower.

Recess, set among superb lake and mountain scenery, is a real beauty spot in Connemara with Glendalough Lake on one side and Derryclare Lough on the other.  North of Derryclare, Lough Inagh stretches along the glaciated valley of Glen Inagh, separating the Twelve Bens from the Maamturk Mountains. It is a hauntingly beautiful place, fringed by the mountain ranges and enhanced by forests on the foothills of the Twelve Bens.

A small but charming strip of shops makes up Recess village, with Joyce’s Craft Shop and Art Gallery providing a genuinely good reason to get out of the car and stretch your legs. Recess is the home of the famous Connemara green marble and don’t forget to visit the Connemara Giant in the car park opposite to make a wish.

Lough Inagh is renowned for game fishing and boats can be hired locally by visitors. Lough Inagh Lodge has a lovely traditional bar and a great restaurant, both serving excellent food.   Further north into Connemara brings you to Killary where you can take a cruise up Killary fjord.
