Guest Reviews


    • “Beautiful accommodations in the country, perfect getaway home.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The owners greeted us on arrival to go over the homes features, very genuine and helpful. The home was true to its online depiction. It was well appointed with furniture, technology, and a beautiful yard. Plenty of space for our family (grandparents, couple, and children). The house is situated in a lovely area outside of Galway, and was within driving distance of many great attractions (Cliffs of Moor, Bunratty, Aran Islands). We really thought it was priced well, especially when you compare it to the cost of hotel rooms on a per/night basis. But more importantly to us, it felt like being home. (Owners left a little care package in the kitchen to get us started, which was a nice touch).”

    The Howard Family, Indiana, October 2013


    • “The house was ideally situated for visiting places of interest. After a day sightseeing you'd come back and relax in the wonderful surroundings the house is situated in. The garden is great for alfresco dining, and also very quiet. The house caters for all ages, we could not fault it and would definitely return.”

    Mr Smith, Rainham, September 2015

    • “Beautiful house, well equipped, excellent location, central to Galway and Co. Clare. Owner very welcoming and helpful- we'll be back!”

    Mrs Hayes, Belfast, October 2014

    • “My wife and I, accompanied by my daughter and her two children picked this house for a base for a family holiday. The house fulfilled all the promise of the pictures seen on the website. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owner who left several items for that essential 1st cup of tea after a day travelling. My two young grand-daughters enjoyed exploring the delights of the house and well laid out gardens. For us the house was perfectly placed for visiting the greater Galway area and isolated enough for a quiet day doing little or nothing. We would have no hesitation in booking this house again or recommending it to others.”

    Mr Blyberg, Belfast, June 2014

    • “The location of the property was excellent for areas like Connemara, The Burren and Galway. The weather was fantastic, and there were excellent restaurants. The property had an excellent garden with decking & a huge garden area.”

    Mrs Wilkes, Birmingham, June 2014

    • “A very friendly welcome! The house was spacious and luxurious; A perfect size for 6 to 8 people! And the location was perfect to explore a big part of Western Ireland. Of course the weather was not always ideal but then the comfortable cottage really compensated for this! So we had as splendid vacation!”

    Mrs Fieman, Engelen, April 2014

    • “We can not say enough good things about our stay at Cois Chlair! It was beautiful, private, spacious, comfortable and the perfect place to come home to at the end of a day roaming the beautiful west of Ireland. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer or spend more time at the cottage just resting and enjoying the beauty. Every detail was attended to by the owner, who was delightful and helpful.”

    Mrs Zenk, River Falls, March 2014

About the location


Gort 7 miles; Galway 16 miles;

The small charming village of Ardrahan, County Galway, sits on the main road from Ennis to Galway, surrounded by beautiful countryside. With accounts dating back to the 13th century, and the remains of an ancient Norman castle to be found on its outskirts, Ardrahan echoes a history long past. Nowadays it is home to a local shop, two pubs and a scattering of quaint thatched-roof houses. The striking Coole Park Nature Reserve and The Burren can be easily reached from Ardrahan, both offering outstanding walking opportunities. The market town of Gort lies a short drive to the south and benefits from a good selection of shops and traditional pubs hosting vibrant Irish music that is sure to inspire the soul. The city of Galway is just a little further, as is the picturesque coastline of County Clare, making Ardrahan a well-situated base for touring the beautiful west of Ireland.
