Rahasane is Europes largest turlough covering 250 hectares when full. Due to the nature of a Turlough the water level rises and falls depending on the weather.

It makes for a lovely walk and is very popular with bird watchers due to its variety of bird species including large flocks of beautiful swans.

Absolutely great house with plenty of space! There is a beautiful picnic table and grill on the back patio for dinners and a fireplace inside the living room for later evenings. The house is about 25 minutes from Galway or 15 minutes Kinvarra which has a great farmer's market on Fridays. Definitely a great place to stay for those looking for a remote getaway. Perrin was a great host and very responsive in all of our communications. We were there in mid-September and since this house is really close to a lake, it did have little midges flying, though was all part of the rustic charm. I would definitely stay again!

The house is a spacious house with a views to a swamp. It was not far from Galway. It is a nice option if you don't want to be in the middle of the city but a nice distance to enjoy the countryside as well. We have been very comfortable. The furniture is simple but ok. The house was very clean and quiet as stated in the announcement. Perrin was also a nice host, at our disposal when we needed something. We definitely recomend it.
