Railway Lodge and Cottage are situated at the Gateway to Connemara, you may wish to self cater in the Railway Cootage or you may want to be pampered in the Railway Lodge, this is the ideal base to experience More and discover the majestic Connemara. The Aran Islands are a short drive and ferry trip away, climb Diamond Hill in the National Park Letterfrack or explore Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Gardens. Enjoy culinary delights in the village of Oughterard after a day in Connemara. Less
