  • Mr A'hearn

    “Excellent location in rural, yet close to town, setting.”

    Cottage has ample room and parking. Plumbing could use some upkeep, and a clothes dryer would be helpful since getting everything dry was problematic, but otherwise a fine place for a big group such as ours.

About the property

Situated just a short walk from the popular fishing village of Kinvara in County Galway, is this delightful detached, stone-built cottage.

With its thatched roof, this lovely cottage is the perfect place for families and groups of friends wishing to explore and discover the wonderful west coast of Ireland.

The cottage boasts a well-equipped, fitted kitchen where you can prepare home-cooked meals, and a separate sitting room with dining area, which is complemented by a feature fireplace and solid fuel stove for extra comfort during your stay.

Five comfortable double bedrooms and two bathrooms complete the accommodation.

Guests can also enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in the front garden and there’s ample off road parking available.

The charming village of Kinvara lies on the stunning Wild Atlantic Way, Europe’s longest coastal route which stretches from Malin Head in Donegal all the way to Mizen Head in County Cork.

It encompasses Ireland’s breathtaking west coast and all that is has to offer, including striking seascapes, sandy beaches, majestic sea cliffs and a wealth of coastal culture, tradition and charm.

Kinvara boasts a selection of shops, pubs and places to eat, as well as a pretty harbour where you can watch the local fishermen land their daily catch.

There are plenty of attractions within easy reach including Traught beach, The Burren, The Cliffs of Moher, Galway City and Doolin caves.

Why take a boat trip to the Aran Islands, or travel to the charming town in Lisdoonvarna, home to the annual Matchmaking Festival?

This delightful cottage provides a truly splendid base for exploring both Galway and Clare.

About the location


Galway City 18 miles; Burren National Park 19 miles.

A picturesque seaside village in south County Galway, Kinvara is located on the edge of the world renowned "Burren" on Galway Bay. The entrance into Kinvara is marked by Dunguaire Castle, where medieval banquets are still hosted, and the quaint harbour still holds working examples of 'Galway Hookers', the majestic sailing craft which used to sell their wares between Connemara & Kinvara. Home to numerous pubs, shops and eateries, with a renowned farmer’s market every Friday and hosting two festivals celebrating culture and heritage each year, there is no shortage of things to do here. The small city of Galway, affectionately known as the “city of festivals”, with its pretty alleyways and colourful nightlife is within easy reach, and 7 miles away is the Burren National Park and Nature Reserve where animals and plant life are abundant, and there are numerous walking opportunities. A wonderful location, at any time of the year.
