Our cottage is set in the countryside approx. 13km from Galway city, and 40 minutes drive from Connemara. It is a pre-famine cottage that has been simply modernised. Enjoy the quiet countryside while visiting the city and beaches nearby.
This is small renovated, rustic cottage, with lots of charm. There are lovely country walks nearby, as well as outdoor areas for enjoying the peace and quiet and watching the swallows - some of which live in our shed!
There are two bedrooms, one twin/double upstairs, one double downstairs. We have one bathroom with a shower. Large kitchen, separate dining room, and separate living room. Log fire. Outdoor seating to watch the lovely sunsets (hopefully)! Upstairs room is accessed via a ladder stairs, so may not be suitable for people with limited mobility, and has a hatch door in the floor.
Interaction with guests
In the summer we live in the art studio across the yard, so contact will be minimal, whenever required, for chats, advice etc. Continental breakfast for the week will be supplied, so you will not be disturbed in the mornings.
Other things to note
Our cottage is not suitable for children, and access to the upstairs room may be problematic for some (see ladder photo). We supply fresh orange juice, museli, homemade soda bread, eggs, milk etc. The cottage has exposed stone walls so may be a bit dusty for people with allergies. The twin room does not have black out windows, so a bright room in the morning. Suitable location for those who enjoy fishing!
Treat the house as you would like others to treat your own house, while making yourself 'at home'!
