The house has four bedrooms: 1 double with end suite shower and toilet, a large bedroom with 2 single beds and additional pull out bed, a twin room with single beds and another bedroom with a set of bunk beds and a travel cot.

Claddaghduff is an area situated northwest of Clifden which is 15km from Aughrus cottage. It is rich in historical sites especially on Omey Island which is reached on foot when the tide is out where you can see the remains of the 7th century church of St. Feichin and a wedge tomb and drumlins.
The main attraction of this beautiful place is the white sandy beaches, blue seas and the wildlife, which has over time inspired so many artists and writers. There is deep sea angling, lake fishing, and boat trips to Inisturk and Inishbofin.
In Claddaghduff there is a local pub which serves freshly caught seafood dishes, and is quite famous for mackerel in season.
