About the neighbourhood
Headford is the nearest town and you'll find all your day to day requirements here: Supermarket, petrol station, hair and beauty salons, pharmacies, local bar and restaurants.
Cong is a beautiful village located approx 15 mins drive away, it was the location used for the classic film 'The Quiet Man'. Ashford Castle Hotel is also located here, and we strongly recommend a visit for a walk around the beautiful grounds or afternoon tea overlooking the gardens. There are several quaint coffee shops in Cong serving locally produced artisan foods.
Galway is the nearest large city, approx 30 mins drive away.
Westport is a scenic drive away and well worth a visit.
