Kelly cottages are two bungalow houses situated on the narrow strip of land which runs between the mountains and the northern of Clew Bay, near Mulranny. They sit overlooking the lovely bay and the surrounding countryside is made up of rolling hills (Drumlins) that were left behind by the receding ice sheets of the last ice age. They offer breath-taking views of Clew Bay with its numerous tiny islands.

The area has a rich history which is reflected in its many relics of bygone centuries. Local recreational facilities cater for all tastes and are ideally suited to group holidays or family.


The cottages, approved by the Irish Tourist Board, meet a three-star standard and feature a sitting room, kitchen/dining area, and bathroom with bath, shower and toilet.
