Holiday Cottages, Lettermacaward
This lovely village is situated along the wonderful touring route around the broad sweep of Gweebarra Bay. Lettermacaward or "Leitir" as known locally, is the gateway to the Rosses from the South.

The Bay, rich in both Estuary and Marine life, is an ideal location for Angling, Horse Riding, Sailing (pier on south side of the Bay), Scuba Diving, Snorkelling, Swimming and Wind Surfing.
