Hill walking

Delphi valley offers three of the best hillwalks in the country: Sheeffry, Ben Gorm and Mweelrea
Mweelrea is the highest mountain in Connaught (814m), and a short distance to the nouth of the cottage. It presents magnificent scenery from it's summit, but is a mountain which must always be treated with respect. In poor visibility good navigational skills are essential.The major ascent starts from Doolough, 15 mins. north of our cottage.

Tully Strand

Angling

Spend time fishing at Bundorragha river at the cottage or from the pier a couple of meters away. Read more about Angling in Connemara here.

Beaches

Connemara as well as the west coast of Co Mayo are home to some of Ireland’s finest beaches, with wide stretches of pure white sands lapped by a turquoise ocean. The nearest beaches are Tully Strand to the South and Silver Strand to the North of the cottage.

A recent review

Meg McDonald wrote in April 2016:
“We have just had the most wonderful week staying at Bundorragha Cottage. On arrival we were greeted by Deirdre, fresh eggs from her chickens and a homemade cake. The cottage is delightful, plenty of space, a cosy lounge with a wood burning stove and supply of peat (love the smell). The setting is spectacular. The cottage looks out over a river which runs into a tidal pool, you stroll round the corner to the pier and look out over Killary fjord, there are mountains all around and you could spend a week just watching the sun, clouds and weather shift over the landscape. You will need a car. This setting is about the opportunity to be in the awesome landscape. There are pubs and shops but you have to drive. There are spectacular beaches and numerous little islands. There is seafood and soda bread. We can't wait to go back.”
