Good sized cottage with fantastic views out over Galway Bay towards County Clare and the Aran Islands - you can watch the weather roll in and the sunsets for a long time. Very handy for Barna and Galway each only minutes away, and Silverstrand beach, whilst set amid fields and bogland. Very friendly and helpful welcome from Brian, with lots of tips and deep wells of local knowledge. We had a bit of a mix up over the booking but it was all dealt with very smoothly. Lots of useful bits and bobs and thoughtful things around the house, an excellent selection of books too, and look out for hares on the road!
Brian and Mary were prefect hosts and made our stay in this lovely cottage both relaxing and welcoming.
We were staying to attending a family wedding and they could not have been more accommodating to us. The cottage was comfortable and well maintained, with everything you need in the kitchen. The setting was tranquil and the dog loved the freedom to run around.
Highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking to stay in Galway but still enjoy the quietness of the Barna.
The location and views are amazing with stunning walks right out the front door. It's also a convenient location to Galway and many other wonderful sites. We arrived after a very long trip to a clean and well appointed house. Brian, our host was terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed our "Walking Tour" of Galway with Mr. Brian Nolan and would strongly recommend. His advice on tracking down our relations and his recommendations on day trips won't be forgotten. We look forward to going back and we did enjoy meeting Puff.
Close to Barna village, about 15 minutes from Galway. Thanks to our host Brian's great advice, we spent 2 days touring the area and had a great time. We would love to visit here again and would recommend this place to anyone.
The house was in perfect condition, accommodating our every need and perfect for little ones. Brian was extremely helpful and resourceful. The area is gorgeous, with lovely views and trails in each direction. Puff was also a great host, greeting us every time we'd come back from an adventure. The beach is not far away from here, as are parks and the aquarium. Galway was a quick drive. Loved the variety of books and dvds.
Thank you for everything❤.
