  • "You did not describe just how welcoming the house, the housekeepers, and the neighbours are - the dairy farmer just up from the house was happy to let us watch his cows being milked."

    He was happy to explain to city children how and why things happen. The house keepers were very kind and friendly too. A lovely house in a fabulous setting. comfortable, warm and spacious. Nor did you mention the absolute peace and extensive space around the house. plenty of parking Lovely for me, the children and the dog. Thank you.

    It was very comfortable for our little 50th wedding Anniv. celebration. Working and serving our guests from the area with the refrigerator and freezer allowed seating for several people without interruption at the main kitchen table.Many guests said that this house would be recommended to their family /friends if needed.

The property

A family-friendly, detached cottage located in the small hamlet of Timicat, near to Glenamaddy, a friendly town in the north east of County Galway.

This cottage offers spacious, peaceful accommodation and is a wonderful place to spend some time together as a family or for getting together with friends in rural Ireland.

With four well-presented bedrooms, there is plenty of variety throughout.

This Glenamaddy cottage has a large fitted kitchen with small dining area that comes well equipped for all your catering and entertaining needs, a large utility with additional WC, a welcoming sitting room with open fire and a separate dining room where you can relax together after a jam-packed day around the Galway region.

The dining room opens out on to a rear patio through sliding doors, so step outside to take in the fresh countryside air; the only sound you will hear will be the cows grazing nearby!

The large enclosed lawned area makes for an ideal place where the children can play all day long while you relax and enjoy your Ireland break.

The town of Glenamaddy is commonly known as the music capital of Galway and prides itself in its strong tradition of music and drama, with numerous lively pubs that host regular sessions.

The town lies beside Lough Lurgeen, a raised bog area of National Heritage and International importance which is bursting with interesting plant life.

Further afield you can visit the town of Roscommon, the shrine at Knock, the town of Athlone and Lough Ree, Connemara and The Burren.

The city of Galway is well worth a trip while staying at this Glenamaddy cottage, with its cobbled streets and array of culture and heritage.

A delightful family-friendly cottage, with something for everyone.
