The space

“Anam-Samh” (= “tranquil soul” in Irish) is a modern, comfortable and tastefully furnished 5-bedroomed family cottage with a conservatory and a living area of 200 square meters, idyllically situated on a secluded 2.5 acre site directly on the shores of Lough Corrib, surrounded by a very large Garden and its own woods at rear. As its name implies the house is an ideal place to get away from it all. With panoramic views of Lough Corrib and the Connemara mountains in the distance, the setting is breathtaking, peaceful and surrounded by nature. Relax and read in front of a cosy log fire; take a stroll through the surrounding countryside go fishing, hill-walking or biking through scenic Connemara or enjoy cinemas, theatre, traditional Irish music etc. It's all on your doorstep.

The guests will have the house, which was built with comfort in mind to themselfs.

Galway: Galway City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. Visitors and students contribute a lot to the life of the City and are welcomed by the Galwegians for doing so. Galway and its surroundings are famous for many festivals from the Film festival (end June), 'Galway Arts Festival' (mid-July), 'Galway Races' (end July) culminating in the famous 'Galway and Clarinbridge Oster Festival' (in September). A free newspaper which contains details of what's happening in the City 'The Galway Advertiser' is published every Thursday and it is worth checking the internet or picking up a copy (available in any newsagent's, if you are quick).

Tourist attractions: The house is ideally situated for trips to the wonderful scenic area of Connemara and Co. Clare. Connemara is a superb fishing and golfing area. Oughterard Golf Club (18 hole Parkland) is only ten minutes away. You may also go on beautiful walks (Connemara Way) and there is wildlife for the keen photographer. Visit Co. Clare e.g. the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren with its spectacular views and the Aran Islands by boat from Rossavael (45 minutes drive from the house).

Michael's house is beautiful, in a very pretty setting on the shores of a large lake . The photos on line do not it justice. Our stay was most enjoyable.

Dear Leigh, thank you for your comments and the nice note you left on the table for me. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our house and that the distance into Galway was not such a Problem after all. Best regards Michael

Michael is a very conscientious and welcoming host, and despite being out of the country, contacted me by e-mail and phone to make sure I had all the necessary info for my stay. The caretaker was also very prompt in answering questions, and extensive information is provided in the house itself regarding appliances, maintenance and info on the surrounding area. The house is well-appointed with everything you could possibly need in terms of kitchen, linen etc. It's a real home away from home and the sort of facilities I would hope for when using Airbnb. The views are as described, spectacular, with plenty of reading nooks and areas in the house to enjoy it from. Access was challenging, as the secondary road to the house is quite poor, so slow and careful driving is required, and the driveway of the house itself had suffered extensive flood damage and had a temporary surface, but I believe the driveway is currently being repaired. Overall this is a lovely home as can clearly be seen in the photos. It's well-suited to the Airbnb ethos, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael as a host.

Thank you Tara for your valuable comments and remarks. During the May fly season it is a big challenge to keep the windows clean. Unfortunately I am not there to keep an eye on this. We will improve the driveway to our house this year. Regards Michael
