Located in: Oughterard
Jasmine Cottage
This charming Self Catering Cottage for two is situated one one-half acres - on the same property as the main residence. You will enjoy your privacy in this romantic cottage. Amelia, the owner, is a cosmopolitan gem who has lived in France, Italy, London and La Jolla, California. She is privileged to be a Joyce from Joyce Country and her knowledge alone is worth the trip. This honeymooner's dream cottage has been rated in the Guardian Newspaper as one of the special places to stay in Ireland.
A warm welcome awaits you.


Amelia Joyce, the owner of this luxury property, loves all things Italian. Foreign accents, notably Italian and Mexican, bestow warmth to this charming retreat. Rough plastered walls and a rich palette dictated by oriental rugs, show off works of art, pottery and ceramics collected from around the world. The big sitting room has sink-in armchairs before a lovely turf fire. A selection of books to choose from. In the generous bedroom, the bed linen is luxuriously Italian. French doors and windows open to garden vistas and the waters of Lough Corrib.

Special Attractions In Connemara. Amelia's Favourites:

Angeling: Fishermen come from all over the world to fish Lough Corrib. Sir William Wilde, father of Oscar, wrote a book titled 'Lough Corrib' published in l872. The Wilde family had a home 'Moytura House' near Headford and a hunting lodge called 'Illaunroe (attached by a causeway to the mainland) in Lough Fee near Leenane. Here, Oscar learned to fish.


Walking: Walk the 'The Western Way' a renowned walk that starts close to Amelia's cottage on the Glann Road and ends at Maam - l4km. Or take 'The Western Way' which descends to Lough Inagh Valley...a sight which captures your heart forever.

Swimming: Take a dip in Lough Na Foohey. Surrounded by the wild symphony of rugged mountains. There is a sorrow here but also a sharp beauty, a man goes cold with the beauty of it and is glad to be alone.

Picnicking: Take your picnic basket and drive to Delphi which owes it's name to the Marquis of Sligo, who returning from the Grand Tour, named his fishing Lodge Delphi. In ancient times, Delphi was considered to be the centre of the known world, the place where heaven and earth met. This was where man was closest to God and Delphi in Mayo is exactly that place.

Golf: A fine 18 hole golf club is just minutes away.

Retaurants: Excellent resturants are located nearby.

Who better than to show off the highlights of Connemara than a Joyce from Joyce Country - A name boldly imprinted on the map of Connemara. The Ancient clan has been around forever...well, at least since 1169. This romantic cottage has been featured in several top European magazines.
