Ballycurrin House is located in the grounds of the 12th century Ballycurrin Castle. This fine Georgian House is on the shores of Lough Corrib, set in four acres of beautiful woodland and gardens with one of Ireland's onshore lighthouse's a stroll away. The whole house can be rented or if preferred, an individual room with breakfast. Please see the separate listings under 'room only' if you are interested in booking a room.
Ballycurrin House is located on the shores of Lough Corrib a few minutes drive from Headford, Co Galway. This Georgian property dates from the 1760's and was built on the grounds of the 12th century Ballycurrin Castle. The ruin of the castle is just behind the house. Ballycurrin was extensively restored and renovated a few years ago. It's a two story over basement house. The large and well equipped kitchen is in the basement. On the 1st floor is the the impressive hallway with access to the living room. On the 2nd floor are three bedrooms, all ensuite. The very large master bedroom has views of Lough Corrib and has a large ensuite bathroom. Both the double and twin rooms have ensuite bathrooms. There is plenty of space for parking and there are lots of green spaces to sit out and enjoy the view in the peaceful surroundings of the Galway countryside. There is plenty to do and see here. Ballycurrin Lighthouse, dating from the 1700's is a few meters walk from the house and swimming is possible in the lake. The historic town of Cong is 20 minutes drive away and the very famous Ashford Castle is nearby. Ballycurrin House is a wonderful place to base your holiday as Connemara is easily visited by car as is Co Mayo. Fishing is possible at Lough Corrib and there are boats to rent if you so wish. There is also golfing and horse-riding in the area. The rooms are also available to book on an individual basis (please see the separate listings for the bedrooms on Airbnb).
You will have access to all of the house except my private room.
As you will be renting the whole house we probably won't see each other except on arrival and departure but I will always be contactable should you need me for any reason.
I don't have any very strict rules. All I require is that guests respect my home and if the kitchen is used for cooking that it is cleaned up afterwards. I'd appreciate if you turn off the lights in rooms that you are not using. Please let me know if you are planning a party or event as I reserve the right to deny the request depending on what type of party/event is proposed.
