Prague House description

Holiday home
This detached stone cottage is in an elevated position on the fringes of Lettermore village, close to the sea in County Galway. The property dates back over 100 years, and used to be the village shop. Now, this building offers accommodation for up to six people, comprising of three double en-suite rooms, a kitchen with solid fuel stove, a utility room and a lounge with open fire and exposed stone walls. To make the most of the impressive views, there is also a sun room with French windows opening onto the garden. The cottage has been lovingly restored to provide spacious and welcoming accommodation, full of character and original features, yet still benefits from modern conveniences.

Located on a small island in the south west corner of County Galway, the pretty village of Lettermore is connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway. This village is home to a welcoming Irish pub, a small convenience store and traditional butcher's shop, and is also located in an area where the Irish language is still prevalent. This beautiful area of unspoiled countryside offers a wide range of walking and cycling opportunities, as well as great spots for water sports. There are numerous coves, beaches and inlets to explore along the coastline, in addition to great opportunities for sailing, fishing and scuba diving. The Connemara National Park is only a short drive away, whilst the Aran Islands are located just off the coast in Galway Bay.

Towering cliffs stand next to vast stretches of golden sand, whilst vast mountain ranges cradle cool, low-lying lakes. The Galway region epitomises the term 'great outdoors'; with fantastic walking and cycling and exhilarating water sports.

Oil central heating with solid fuel stove in dining room and open fire in sitting room. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV, DVD player, stereo/CD player, internet via ethernet cable, library of books, CDs and DVDs.

We loved the cottage, it was a credit to the owners who could not have been more helpful or kind! Lots of extras included which just made our holiday more enjoyable.

What a wonderful house, and what a lovely reception! The house, it is beautiful with fabulous views and lovely rooms which are superbly equipped. The fantastic kitchen diner was of a standard we would dream of having in our own house. We can't fault this holiday home. We have stayed in many, many cottages and villas all over the UK, and Europe, and this, without doubt, was the nicest we have ever been to. 10/10 from us and highly recommended in every way.

I have stayed in accommodation all over the world and without question this is top of the list. We found no fault at all and will definitely be returning.

The place is beautiful. It's a little remote but well worth it. It accommodated six of us easily - and we'd recommend it to anyone considering it. We all loved it.

It was a home from home holiday experience. On arrival we were greeted by the owners at Prague House who showed us around and made us welcome. The table was set and there was fresh Irish soda bread, milk and treats, which were greatly appreciated after a long journey. The house was immaculate and the views are superb.
Mrs Beatty
June 2014
This was our 4th visit to Prague House and as usual it was perfect again. Wonderful reception with the owners. This place is more than excellent. It is a beautiful house with just about everything you need and there is a shop just down the lane selling more or less everything. A real homely feel with amazing views in a very peaceful area. Ideally located for visiting our family there and for a relaxing peaceful break. Already planning next year's visit.

Prague House is a perfect place to spend a break. Our children loved the horses in the nearby field.
Mrs Lyons
July 2012
We stayed in Prague House, it was out of this world. It was a home from home and had everything we needed. The local shop was brilliant, sold everything and it was really welcoming. Our host was fab and really friendly and was waiting for us with turf fires lit. It was a great holiday and we will definitely be back.
Mrs Summers

Beautifully fitted out, very comfortable and warm. Lovely welcome by the owners (scones, wine, chocs etc).Exceptionally good value for money.

This is an excellent house with spectacular views. Fantastic kitchen and brilliant sun room! Lettermore is surprisingly well-provided with facilities e.g a useful shop (always open) just down the lane.
Mrs Baily

Property exceeded expectations. Area wonderful, very peaceful. Access to shop/pubs nearby. Outside area; paved terrace with seating. Ample parking. Small paddock safe for the children to play in at the rear of the house.

Just returned from our second stay here. We were not disappointed. If you want to expierience rural rustic Ireland, then this is the place for you. A beautiful stone built cottage which used to be the village shop / post office. A huge family farmhouse kitchen with roaring peat fire, comfortable living room with another roaring peat fire, three double bedrooms, one with great views over the bay, this has to be one of the best cottages we have stayed in. On arrival you will receive a warm traditional Irish welcome from Michael and Septa. Freshly baked scones and a steaming pot of tea or coffee, bottle of wine and chocolates. Even the beds had hot water bottles put in them. Michael will leave enough turf to burn for the week. It is equiped with everything you could possibly need for the week, from BBQ coal (if you get the weather) to walking poles. There are loads of books and guides on the local and surrounding area which itself, although rural is not that far from Galway or smaller local villages. Rory`s shop at the bottom of the lane has everything you will need plus a well stocked off license. A pub 10 minutes walk with another less than 2 miles away. Be sure to go to Rosaveel (5 miles away) and catch the ferry to the Aran Islands (make sure you book ahead as they get busy over the summer) Inisheer is the smallest and most beatiful of the 3, again with several pubs and restaurants. Highly recommended. If you fancy a bit of deep sea fishing then there are several charter boats that usually go out 5-6 days a week, weather permitting. As the location is right of the edge of the wild Atlantic, dont expect tropical weather, although we did have it last year. I cant recommend this place highy enough and Michael and Septa will go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. With friends from England staying with us, we had a great time. looking forward to next year again

We couldn't be more thrilled with our choice of the Prague House for our family vacation. We were greeted upon arrival by the owners, who were just the sweetest and friendliest couple ever. They had brought us huge fresh scones from the bakery, lit a fire, set the table, and even had some milk and eggs to start us off. The house has everything you need such as towels, linens, dishes, utensils, pots/pans, seasonings, WIFI, TVs, literally everything! There were six of us and there were enough towels for all. There are two beautiful fireplaces which were so comfy! The surrounding area is gorgeous with a water view and amazing Irish scenery. It is also conveniently located in walking distance from a market (that also has everything you need), walking distance from the funnest pub (Plunkett) with live music & a gas station right next door, about 10 minutes driving from a post office, 20 minutes from a cute little art town called Spiddal, and 1 hour from the city of Galway. The house was so comfortable and cozy and felt like our own, and the town of Lettermore is so friendly and amazing. We absolutely loved our stay here. THESE PICTURES DONT DO IT JUSTICE - the house is much larger and even more beautiful in person!

Booked this house for extended family including grandchildren. House is located in a very rural, beautiful part of Irish speaking area ( also English). The owners Michael & Cepta meet us on arrival with table laid for tea and fresh scones, what a start. The house was fantastic, spotless, with loads of room and all the facilities you will need. The local shop is 300 yards down road and the owner Rory treats you like one of his family giving you a map of area and places of interest. His fresh baked wheaten and inhouse Pizzas are so tasty and reasonably priced. Approx. 10 mins drive from house is one of the most pleasant and challenging 9 hole golf courses you will ever play and only 15Euro. The club house has a thatched roof. Galway City is less than a hour south and all to the north is the Connemara region, it is breathtaking for scenery and beaches. Go to Dogs Bay beach near Roundstone. The area around the house is worth exploring and the house inside and out is brilliant. If the sun shines just to sit in the patio area with a book and drink will calm you to the bones. Forget about all the buzz and hassle of foreign hot places and recharge your batteries in this magical part of Ireland. Money can't buy what you get from this place, house and people. Book and enjoy..

Prague House is an absolutely stunning cottage. It is located in Lettermore which is quite isolated, although there is a shop at the end of the road. The cottage has a welcoming feel to it, beautifully renovated with views over the bay. There are two en suites and a bathroom so perfect for friends and families. The owners are very welcoming with hot scones and coffee on arrival. The kitchen/diner is fantastic giving a real homely feel to the property. Would definitely recommend.
October 2013
This a fantastic property, we loved it. We were also very lucky to have lots of sunny days which always puts a good slant on anywhere one stays.However, this house was extremely well supplied with everything and is very comfortable.
August 2011
This cottage was beautifully presented and exceptionally well-equipped. The welcome from the owners was first-rate and we felt very at home here. Lettermore is in beautiful Connemara and the only thing we found disappointing was the distance we needed to cover to find eating places and places of interest - this should have been clearer from the cottage brochure.

A wonderful welcome and stay. There was nothing that was too much trouble for the owners. The cottage is immaculate and fitted to the highest standard having a vista at the rear across the bay and beyond to the hills of Clare on a clear day and out across to the Aran Islands. To the front is Lettermore hill for which the owners provide instructions on how to access the top, it requires a bit of effort but most should be able to do it in half an hour, panoramic views of the twelve Bens and Aran Islands and clear enough on the day we went up that we could see the Cliffs of Moher in the far distance across Galway Bay. It is a great base situated ideally to get out and explore with all of the main attractions within an hours drive and many more closer still. The lighting along with the tides changing throughout the day provide constantly changing surroundings which can be enjoyed from the sun room. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Prague House in early July and were impressed both by the accommodations and the wonderful owners who met us (though we were two hours late!) with fresh scones and a warm Irish welcome. As it turns out, this house has been in their family for generations and the love that went into its restoration is quite evident. The pictures do not do this house justice. It is newly remodeled and very large, easily accommodating our family of five. There is both a peat-burning stove in the enormous eat-in kitchen (which had more gadgets than I have in my own!) and a fireplace in the large family room. The three bedrooms are of good size and comfortable, the bathrooms modern and stylish. While not on the water's edge, there is a panoramic view of the sea from the kitchen, master bedroom, sun room and terraces. Other rooms look onto nearby cottages, but nothing that is objectionable in the least. The owners showed us around the place, including how to use the appliances which was very helpful, and when we departed met with us once again and refunded the good-housekeeping bond on the spot without any quibbling whatsoever. We could walk down to the general store, which is a huge plus since the cottage is relatively isolated (which we liked). There is a Catholic Church in town which has services in Irish (the view of the steeple at night is really rather pretty), and a pub (we didn't make it there, but it's maybe a three-minute drive away). The drive to the Aran Island ferries is about fifteen minutes and there are good restaurants/pubs within about that distance as well. Galway, Connemara Park, and Cong are all within about an hour's drive. The only reason I gave it a 4 star on location has to do with getting through Galway in order to access anything west or south of there. We've stayed in lovely accommodations all around the world, and I would not hesitate to recommend this home. I don't know how our experience could be improved- well, maybe down comforters on the beds- not much of a "complaint"- just that the rest of the house was so far above expectations!

This is a superb property in a superb location. This is a real home from home and one of the best that we have ever stayed in.

We have just returned from a family holiday in which a large group of us stayed in Prague house and two other nearby cottages. I could not recommend Prague house enough. It was a beautifully decorated house with every thing you would need for a stay in Connemara. The kitchen of the house is particularly outstanding with a stove to burn turf on, which we used on a few rainy days. The owners of the house were wonderful and ensuring that we had everything we could possibly need. We are already looking forward to the next time we visit Prague house.

What a beautiful & comfortable home.. It is convienent & filled with all the modern convienences. The hosts are both helpful & available.

The pictures of the cottage do not do it justice.. It is beautiful, quiet and much larger than we thought. We were a group of six people - three generations of of our family. There were three large bedrooms and three baths. We had plenty of living space and privacy. Despite the remote feeling of the cottage, there is a grocery store and a butcher in easy walking distance. The small village has a Post office, gas station and pub. Everything that we could possibly need was thought of by the owner, Cepta Stevens. The garden is large and full of flowers. Our grandchildren played in the garden everyday. There are ponies across the road that are so gentle and love to be feed carrots and apples. We loved our week at Prague House.
Ms Pomykaj

The house was absolutely beautiful and clean.. The views from every window were spectacular. Our house hosts, Cepta and Michael were so kind and welcoming as well. My family had a wonderful holiday that created very happy memories. The only thing that I might add to the house would be a laundry basket and more clothes pins to carry out laundry to hang outside.

Prague House in Lettermore is breathtaking! The views are spectacular, the people in the area are so welcoming and Prague House, or Ti Cepta to the locals, is exceptional!! It has everything we could ever need, is warm and inviting and equipped to the fullest. The ponies in the neighbouring field gallop to meet us, (maybe from the rustling of the carrot bag) and Michael and Cepta have ensured everything is perfect...a home away from home!!
April 2018
A beautiful bungalow with everything you need for a great holiday.. Spotlessly clean. We were met by Sumpta, the owner who was so welcoming and friendly. She had lots to tell us about the area, she even rang halfway through the week to check we were ok. *****

The holiday cottage was fantastic ! Incredibly well equipped, clean and comfortable. It was a true home away from home. We really appreciated the personal touches and would love to stay again.

Lovely large, cosy cottage, refurbished with love and care.. We had a great week here and hope to come back one day. Many thanks to Cepta for the scones and warm welcome. The shop at the bottom of the road stocks everything and has long opening hours so no need to worry about groceries.
