“Perfectly quaint location with very hospitably hosts.”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I can't recommend this place enough, a fantastic quaint location in the middle of the stunning Irish countryside, a few minutes away from Spiddal (which houses some brilliant eating spots and amazing coastal views), 25 minutes from the city of Galway, and a 5 minute walk away from the beach, so location wise this holiday rental is perfectly ideal. Now the hosts, Mike and Majella, are where my main praise lie, they were both extremely hospitable and generous throughout, if we happened to see them, they were always interested in what we did in our day and were willing to help whenever (including providing aftersun to my sunburned brother), both very friendly and one of the main reasons I would recommend this place. Whilst this was my first visit to Ireland, I will most likely be returning again, and would love for nothing more than to return to this place. Brilliant stay!

“Great base for Galway and Connemara”
Reviewed 13 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Wonderful cosy cottage with very hospitable hosts.

Great location with 15 - 20 min to Galway with drive along the water. Head north west for Connemara scenery.
Convenient shopping close by.

Centrally heated, plus a fire, and very well equipped.
We enjoyed our stay...thanks so much Mike and Majella

“Perfect location for exploring area”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Definitely a cosy cottage with very pleasant hosts. Always there if required but not on top of you. Great for exploring the area even if the weather could have been better. Beach only a very short walk suitable for children. Galway only 20 minute drive away and worth a visit.

“A great getaway for a much-needed break from the rat race!”
Reviewed 18 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

After a busy Easter break what we desperately needed was a getaway and Cosy Chalet didn't disappoint. While it wasn't the warmest weather, we loved being able to take a walk to the beach whenever we felt like it - less than a ten minute walk down the lane. My two children loved being able to climb on the rocks, collect shells and crabs from the rock pools and we even got to see loads of seals close up!
We didn't realise at the time of booking that the cottage was an annex to the main house, but at no time did this become an issue. The owners are friendly and helpful and ready to help if needed.
Looking back, we are happy to have chosen this as our place to stay. It definitely represented value-for-money.
