was built in 1862 as a small fishing lodge on the edge of the Roundstone
Bog, 150 square miles of moorland and lakes which are a Special
Area of Conservation for otters, raptors and unusual plants.
It has its own river running through the garden with fly fishing
for Sea Trout, Brown Trout and the occasional Salmon, yet is only
a few hundred yards from the Atlantic and its rocky islands and
Emlaghmore is comfortably furnished in accordance with its age,
and has belonged to the Tinne family for over 75 years. Situated
halfway between the picturesque fishing village of Roundstone and
the 18 hole links golf course at Ballyconneely, it is an ideal place
to relax and enjoy Connemara.
There are good pubs and restaurants in the area, and local activities
include sailing, sea fishing, riding, hill walking, windsurfing,
bird watching and painting.
