Anam-Samh: Quiet, family cottage on the waterfront of Lake Corrib in Connemara
“Anam-Samh” (= “tranquil soul” in Irish) is a private, quiet, modern, comfortable and tastefully furnished 5-bedroomed family villa with a panoramic view, idyllically situated on a secluded 2.5 acre site directly on the waterfront of lake Corrib , surrounded by a very large Garden and its own woods at rear. As its name implies the house is an ideal place to get away from it all. With panoramic views of Lake Corrib and the Connemara mountains in the distance, the setting is breathtaking, peaceful and surrounded by nature. Relax and read in front of a cosy log fire; take a stroll through the surrounding countryside go fishing, hill-walking or biking through scenic Connemara or enjoy cinemas, theatre, traditional Irish music etc. It’s all on your doorstep.
Galway: Galway City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. Visitors and students contribute a lot to the life of the City and are welcomed by the Galwegians for doing so. Galway and its surroundings are famous for many festivals from the Film festival (end June), ‘Galway Arts Festival’ (mid-July), ‘Galway Races’ (end July) culminating in the famous ‘Galway and Clarinbridge Oster Festival’ (in September). A free newspaper which contains details of what’s happening in the City ‘The Galway Advertiser’ is published every Thursday and it is worth checking the internet or picking up a copy (available in any newsagent’s, if you are quick).
Tourist attractions: The house is ideally situated for trips to the wonderful scenic area of Connemara and Co. Clare. Connemara is a superb fishing and golfing area. Oughterard Golf Club (18 hole Parkland) is only ten minutes away. You may also go on beautiful walks (Connemara Way) and there is wildlife for the keen photographer. Visit Co. Clare e.g. the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren with its spectacular views and the Aran Islands by boat from Rossavael (45 minutes drive from the house).
