Description

Our house in Cong is a five bedroomed en suite property. It is on a wonderfully tranquil riverside site yet only five minutes walk from the village. We provide a selection of activities on site.
The simplest obvious thing is to go for a swim in the river. If you don't wish to swim you can fish the river at several locations. Finally, if you are feeling more adventurous you can paddle and explore the wonders of the Cong River.

The neighbourhood

Cong is a unique village on an island in the middle of a river. It is blessed with spectacular natural beauty. The people are very friendly and it can cater for most requirements.
There are many resources and activities adjacent to the village including golf, fishing, pony trekking, archery, lake cruises, bike rental, scenic walks and historic buildings.

Getting around

Public transport is limited but the village is within walking distance. There are a selection of taxi services and minibus hire available locally.

Other things to note

Cong is central in the Connacht region. It is only forty minutes drive from both Galway and Westport - lively tourist hubs. Cong is actually the gateway to Connemara and ideally located for those who enjoy most outdoor pursuits. It is possible to walk from the house in most directions and enjoy peace and nature uninterrupted. It is located on a narrow neck of land between Ireland's two largest lakes.
It is a profoundly important historic region. It has been inhabited for many thousands of years and both significant archaeology and built heritage abound within walking distance.
It is an excellent base for car touring. As mentioned Connemara is close by. There is an excellent tour around scenic Lough Mask, the Maam Valley and onto Ireland's only fjord, Killary. Beyond Westport there is the spectacle of Achill Island to the northwest and to the south you will find Ireland's holy mountain, Croagh Patrick.
