About Cottage Breaks in Clonbur
Located close to the serene and stunning lakes of Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, the village is set within a truly beautiful area, with the soaring Mount Gable nearby providing a wonderful backdrop. If you appreciate stunning scenery you will absolutely love Clonbur, and if you are an artist taking a cottage holiday here, whether you are a painter or perhaps a photographer, then you will find that the lakes and mountains are perfect for capturing on paper and on film.
Another lough which can be found at the base of Mount Gable is Lough Coolin, which provides fresh water for Clonbur’s residents. This lough is harder to reach than the others as visitors have to pass through another village to get to it, the village of Ballyveane, but once there, it is very much worth the effort because of the relics and remnants of an old village. This is truly fascinating to see for those who are interested in architecture and history.
Lovers of natural beauty and landscapes will love coming to Clonbur for a special self-catering break to soak up the wonderful lake and mountain scenery, and Mount Gable provides some excellent walking trails, some of the best in the whole country. With the sweeping lakes below as well as the picturesque villages, ascending to the peak of Mount Gable is brilliant for if you are an avid walker or hiker, and the views really are worth it.
Ashford Castle is located close by to Clonbur and makes a wonderful day trip for if you are visiting or staying in the area. The castle was built in 1228 and is magnificently grand with beautiful gardens and an imposing entrance.
