Additional amenities & feature info
Old Mike's Cottage offers a welcome break from telephones and internet access.
There is traditional a living room with multi fuel stove in the original large open fireplace. Three bedrooms include an open loft and further to this is a cailleach bed (a bed in an alcove).This opening off the kitchen area was very common in thatched cottages in the west of Ireland .This alcove was often the sleeping quarters of the old woman of the house hence the name cailleach (old lady).

From her bed she was able to maintain a certain amount of discipline and exercise some discipline over children in a mother's absence. She was also kept within the family circle and was party to most family activities.
