  • Annie

    “Fantastic house with everything needed for our extended family holiday (13 of us from 73 years to 14 months.”


    ) John the owner was extremely helpful and answered all queries promptly. Quiet area short drive to Athenry with handy supermarket. Would recommend Dans Bar for friendly Irish welcome with lovely simple food and a turf fire. 30 min drive to Galway with its lively bars and restaurants. All in all fab house with the best of both worlds country peace and short hop to city.

The property

Athenry 6 miles.

This delightful detached cottage is situated six miles from the medieval heritage town of Athenry in County Galway.

This modern, four bedroom property boasts spacious and bright living accommodation, providing plenty of room for a family group or for friends looking to get together in this lovely part of the Emerald Isle.

Set over two floors, the open plan living area offers a stylish well-presented kitchen which leads through to the dining and sitting areas, where you can stretch out in front of the multi-fuel stove at the end of a busy day.

The conservatory offers a second area for dining, a lovely room to sit and wonder at the rolling countryside and where you will find a spot for star-gazing later in the evening.

With a second sitting room offering a place to get away from it all, there is plenty of space for everyone.

There is the added bonus of a games room too, where guests of all ages can unwind over a game of pool, or for the keep fit enthusiasts, you can hop on the treadmill or lift a few weights to go that extra mile.

The ground floor also offers a double bedroom with an en-suite jacuzzi bath and shower room, together with a main family bathroom.

Upstairs you will find three further bedrooms, which also boast fully marble tiled en-suites offering a choice of power or raindrop shower heads.

Outside, the patio offers wonderful views, the perfect place to enjoy an alfresco breakfast before you set off for the day’s travels, or take time to relax and unwind in peaceful surroundings at the end of a busy day.

On a fine day, you may even catch a glimpse of Croagh Patrick Mountain, an important site of pilgrimage in County Mayo.

Galway City is just a short drive from this idyllic holiday home, as is the stunning coastline, the spectacular west coast and the range of beaches that this part of Ireland has to offer.

Whatever time of year you visit, you will be assured a warm welcome and a wonderful Irish experience.
