  • "My family and I had a fantastic week at the Old Village Barn."

    It has home comforts and is beautifully finished with lovely furnishings. The garden is beautiful and so we’ll kept. I would highly recommend the Barn and it was amazing to have the lake at the bottom of the lane. Mary and Oliver were very approachable and nothing was a bother for them.

  • "In the 30 years we have been renting holiday homes, both in the Uk and Ireland, this is the very best accommodation we have ever had."

    Decor is excellent and is exactly as per the photos on the site. Extremely bright with large patio doors and heating excellent. The garden outside has been landscaped very well and there is an outside area with a washing machine and drier - both excellent. Extremely well equipped and a lovely bottle of red wine left for us on arrival, which was very welcome. This is a holiday home that we will definitely be returning to and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Also we were able to take our dog with us with no restrictions on what rooms he could use, only restriction with him was no sitting on furniture or beds which he isnt allowed to do at home anyway. All round excellent holiday.

  • "The Old Village Barn is beautifully decorated and furnished in a tranquil, quiet location within a couple of minutes walk from Lough Derg."

    The accommodation, which is exactly as described on the website, had everything we needed and more as well as been spotlessly clean. We has a wonderful relaxing week with our Labrador and Springador who loved the outdoor space. The owner, Mary Rose, is a wonderful attentive host who was on hand if we needed anything at all. We travel to Ireland quite often and we can honestly say this is the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in. We will definitely be returning and recommending the Old Village Barn to our family and friends. Thank you Mary Rose.

The property

Woodford 6 miles.

This beautifully converted barn sits in a peaceful hamlet just moments from Lough Derg, 6 miles from Woodford and 10 miles from Portumna.

Flooded with natural light, Old Village Barn has been lovingly renovated to a high standard to provide spacious accommodation for a family or group of friends visiting this majestic area in County Galway.

Upon entering the barn, you are greeted by a large kitchen/diner, with French doors leading outside to the rear patio, a delightful spot to enjoy a morning coffee whilst you plan your day.

The kitchen leads to a bright and airy sitting room featuring a modern woodburning stove; curl up and enjoy an evening here with a good book and a glass of wine, or simply sit back and watch a film together.

The barn offers three generous bedrooms, one ground floor king-size, a further king-size and a twin, all with en-suite shower rooms.

Admire the surrounding countryside and Lough Derg from the master bedroom’s charming balcony, or take the steps down to the garden and spend time in the sunshine.

A short walk from the barn takes you to the tranquil Lough Derg, an excellent location for a lakeside picnic with the family, or why not simply enjoy a relaxing morning fishing?

Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with cycling routes, golf, walks and watersports all nearby, plus local attractions such as Portumna Castle and Gardens.

A stunning retreat for a holiday in Woodford.

Property reference 30577 also next door and can be booked together.
