The two bedrooms are upstairs. The bathroom is downstairs. The stairs are relatively narrow and winding, and as a consequence, less physically able folks, or very young children need to take extra care on the stairs. I do have stairs guards for younger children, one for top and bottom of stairs. I also have a travel cot should one be required.

About the neighbourhood
Quiet, rural hinterland just 8 kms from the city of Galway. High on a hillside, we are beside Barna Golf Club and on the 'Sli Connemara' or 'Connemara Way' Walking and Cycling Route. We are 3kms from Barna village.
Getting around
We are poorly served by public transport, so a car is almost a necessity. There is a good, keenly priced, locally based taxi service in Barna. There is a Galway to Connemara Bus Eireann Bus stops in Barna six times a day in each direction. The Aran Ferries bus also stops in the village.
