About our home

Tumneenaun Lodge was the original farmhouse in the Mountmorris Estate in Connemara. We rebuilt it in 2005 to highest standards with stunning views of Mount Gable to the rear and overlooking Lough Corrib to the front. We have it available all year round as it is not our primary home. Nearby villages of Clonbur and Cong provide excellent restaurants, pubs and sites to visit. Weekend music is also a must in Clonbur where you can join in with welcome!
Approx. Distances: Galway 45 mins. Dublin 2.5hrs. Cliffs of Mohir 2hrs. Cork 3.5hrs. Westport 40mins. Clifden 40 mins: in other words an ideal base for site seeing or resting by the open fire reading a great novel!
For older children/adults, Petersburgh Outdoor Centre is only 1.5km away and a great experience provided in bog-snorkling, pot-holing, canoeing, etc. For younger children, there is a great playground within 5 mins.
For those who enjoy a stroll: Suilóid Ben Sleibhe (Mount Gable Walk) is an old road linking Clonbur to Cornamona which is now renovated for pedestrians/cyclists.


More about us

  1. We are a family of 2 adults and 4 children (13,11,7,5). Noel is in construction and farming (he built Tumneenaun Lodge so it is very special to us!).

  2. As Tumneenaun lodge is not our main house, we are more flexible with dates. It is also ideal for family with mobility issues as one of the bedrooms is downstairs with a wetroom attached.

  3. We are looking forward to becoming part of the home exchange holiday life and would treat your home with love and respect.
