Overview

Ideal for Kids

Tack Room Cottage is a sedate, elegant home clad in original stone with stable doors and abundant period charm, fused with every contemporary comfort, to provide a refined, genteel home nestled within the Lough Cutra Castle Estate in County Galway.

This warm and inviting home was converted in the 1920s from the former tack rooms for the estate’s many stables; set within a charming, private cobbled courtyard, with its own entrance and parking. This sumptuous home has fairy tale views of the majestic, awe-inspiring castle.

Tack Room Cottage epitomises “accessible grandeur” - this unique home blends cosy, soft-lit home-spun warmth with ornate, lavish and opulent design touches! Busting with polished antique dark-toned timber, artefacts, plush fabrics and prints, Tack Room Cottage has abundant characterful panache and flamboyant charm - a far cry from an anonymous chain hotel!

In a stylish, charismatic blend of old and new, guests will enjoy top-grade kitchen fittings in a modern farmhouse style kitchen, along with sleek, contemporary touches and unapologetic period charm. The dining room is a vivid canary yellow, punctuated with gilded framed oil paintings and polished dining table for ten, offering a suitably eccentric backdrop for some lively dinner parties!

The living room has a roaring open fire as its centre-piece; rich crimsons and oriental style antiques jostle with soft brown leather upholstery and richly patterns throws, sleek oak flooring offset by bookshelves groaning with good holiday reads.  

Guests will be able to curl up in sublime comfort after a busy day enjoying the outdoors, among the candelabras and ambient light emanating from silk shades!

Eight guests can be accommodated across one queen bedroom, two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom; each bedroom is stylised with unique touches and accents of colour, whilst a bold pillar box red bathroom provides a glamorous, rock-star tone! Whether it be a twin room with soft sky lights or lavishly patterned double room with regal accents of rich crimsons, guests will have fun selecting their abode!

Tack Room Cottage blends the best of a secluded and tranquil home alongside the wider estate’s facilities, such as organised clay pigeon shooting, fishing equipment hire, pheasant hunting, or refined afternoon teas!

This striking home epitomises relaxed luxury and soft glamour, nestled within a striking castle setting - like a scene from the movies - this is a home with a difference - in one of the most rugged, windswept and beautiful parts of Western Ireland!
