Michaeleen's Manor B&B is a unique Bed and Breakfast themed on the John Wayne movie, The Quiet Man, which was filmed in the local village of Cong. Michaeleen's Manor B&B houses a cornucopia of film memorabilia with film posters, paintings and photographs on every wall, as well as character named bedrooms and quotes from the movie immortalised on wooden plaques. Michaeleen's Manor B&B offers a range of single, double, twin, and family rooms en suite with towels and toiletries, and delicious full Irish breakfasts. Ideally located for Quiet Man fans, only 1 mile from The Quiet Man Museum - the departure point for the award winning tours of the film locations.
Set in an idyllic setting, within the Joyce Country and Great Western Lakes Geopark, Michaeleen's Manor B&B is located near the beautiful Connemara region, only half a mile from Lough Corrib and one mile from Cong village, which featured on TripAdvisor's top 10 Irish destinations in 2018 and 2019. The village is an inland island surrounded by water, with quaint shops and cafes and historical ruins dating back to the 12th Century. Michaeleen's Manor is centrally located less than 20 miles from the Bay Coast section of the Wild Atlantic Way at Leenane, and 25 miles from Galway City and Westport - an ideal base from which to explore the West of Ireland including the Aran Islands, Achill Island and the Marian Shrine at Knock.
Michaeleen's Manor is 5 minutes walk from Ireland's finest brown trout and salmon fishing on Lough Corrib and 10 minutes walk from the world famous Ashford Castle. With 2,000 acres of natural forest and woodlands along the lakeshore and river banks, Cong is paradise for walking, hiking and cycling enthusiasts. Whatever outdoor pursuit you fancy you will find it here – boating, cruising, kayaking, archery, horse trekking, caving, mountain climbing, zipwiring and hawk walks.
Come to Cong to unwind, get away from it all, return to nature and work up an appetite in the fresh air for the delicious local food served up in the award winning coffee shops and restaurants. Why not enjoy a Guinness in Cong, the former summer home of the Guinness family and Oscar Wilde and listen to Irish music while having the ‘craic’ in the pubs, which are no place for a Quiet Man!
Cong, once seen is never forgotten.
