Holiday Rental House
Situated 200m from the Falduff strand (Oldhead), the house is an idyllic family get away. The house design is centered around the kitchen which has a large dining sunroom to enjoy meals in what feels like an outdoor space. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. It opens to the living room - a cosy space with an open fire and views of Croagh Patrick. The house is ecofriendly with underfloor heating and constant hot water supplied through a geothermal system. The house is situated on two thirds of an acre with gardens to every side. There is a south and west facing patio (outdoor table and chairs provided) and barbecue area taking in views of the local countryside. The upstairs has views of Clew Bay.
