          We sat on their patio and had some great local oysters with a glass of white wine. Very yummy. They are right on the main street through letterfrack. We enjoyed our snack sitting on their outside tables in the sun

          Large bedroom with open style wardrobe. Bathroom a bit small though. Excellent kitchen/living area. Lovely BBQ area outside. Bar food was tremendous and staff are friendly. Locals are great fun. One hour from Galway by bus. Walking distance of Connemara national park.
