The Farm House lies at the entrance to Cleggan Farm, on the slopes of Cleggan Hill, beside the Wild Atlantic Way. It is surrounded by its own woodland garden with open fields and a mountain stream with a fine view of the 12 Pins to the East, and the main farm buildings on the West side. It has always been a family home and we have maintained the warm ambiance and decor, a feature often commented upon by guests. Whilst it is an old house, we have furnished it with modern conveniences, including Wi-Fi throughout the house. There are two twin bedrooms, and one double room with en-suite. A feature is the games room, much appreciated on wet days.
Cleggan Farm is an ideal setting as a base to explore the beauty of Connemara.
Cleggan Farm has been lived in by our family since 1850 and this lovely family house came to us by inheritance, and the farm is now run by our nephew. We live and work in the UK but get back to Cleggan frequently.
The 750 acre hill farm is bounded by the Atlantic. It is primarily stocked with black faced mountain sheep, but now also has a small flock of Alpacas. Connemara ponies are naturally to be seen on the farm. The farm hillside features a megalithic tomb.
Cleggan Farm is an ideal setting as a base to explore the beauty of Connemara. Equally this is a comfortable family home for easy days of relaxing or reading without external pressures.
Endroit paisible, au milieu des prés de moutons et à côté d'une ferme et cottages saisonniers. En dehors du village. Balades possibles à partir de la location en traversant les prés de moutons. Maison fonctionnelle et bien meublée. Un problème de pression et d'eau chaude au niveau de la douche à l'étage, nous avons donc utilisé celle du bas (à noter que le cumulus est très juste pour 4). Salle de jeux sympa pour les enfants. Bien situé pour visiter le nord du Connemara.
Cleggan beach is within walking distance, forming a part of the Wild Atlantic Way. Numerous sandy beaches are accessible within a few kilometres drive.
