Holiday Rental House
Heron's Rest has an idyllic and tranquil location on the eastern shores of Lough Corrib. If being outdoors appeals to you, then this is the perfect base. It is a fantastic location for angling on the shores of Lough Corrib and close to the Black River (boats and ghillie are available for hire locally). Ballycurrin Bay is famous for its wild brown trout, while coarse fishing for pike and perch is also enjoyed. Wildlife enthusiasts have a wide variety of flora and fauna to see including pine martens, king fishers, mute swans' nesting site and bee orchids. Golf is available in nearby Ballinrobe. Local historical interests include Ross Abbey, Killursa and Moyne monastic sites, Ballycurrin Lighthouse, local ringforts, Cong and Inchagoill which can be visited by boat from Ashford Castle.

It is also an ideal base for touring the surrounding countryside eg. Connemara with its wonderful National Park, Westport, Croagh Patrick and the Burren. However, if the countryside is getting too much, Galway city is only 33km away. Galway has many shops, art galleries, restaurants and wonderful traditional music in the many pubs. It hosts the Arts Festival and Racing Festival during the last two weeks of July and early August. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: N/AMore

We had a great stay. Very peaceful area in a sheltered bay of Lough Corrib. Owner has a good knowledge of the lake and the fishing scene locally. Close enough to Galway to spend and evening on Quay Street too!
