Cottage-style house, in group of 9 houses, on coast road in Inverin, Connemara, 14 miles west of Galway city. This is a very comfortable, well-equipped, 3-bedroomed property, perfect for rest and relaxation and as a base for touring Ireland's beautiful west coast.
Galway City is a haven of Irish music and culture with shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. The Aran Islands, the Burren and Cliffs of Moher, Connemara National Park, Clifden, Kylemore Abbey and Killary Harbour are all within easy touring distance. Day trips recommended to historic Bunratty Castle and Folk Park (County Clare) and to the award-winning town of Westport (County Mayo), recently voted the most desirable place to live in Ireland.
For those happier to remain close to home, why not explore the local area: walk Trá Mhór Blue Flag beach among others; explore the many quaint 'bohreens' ('little roads') or follow the Connemara Way; visit the nearby Spiddal Craft Village or enjoy cycling, horse-riding, golfing, fishing and water sports.
At night, dine out in a range of pubs and restaurants, listen to traditional music and hear Irish (Gaelic) spoken by native speakers.

Áine''s house is extremely well designed. We were three older women and could each have our own room with comfortable beds and good quality bedding. Everything worked perfectly. We enjoyed sitting by a peat fire in the evenings. The house is in a great location, right off the main coast road but very quiet at night. It is convenient to Galway City, Connemara and the Aran Islands. There is a good supermarket and beach within walking distance. Best of all was the chance to talk to Áine, who is a fascinating person.
I had made a mistake and missed that there is no internet. It wasn't Áine's fault, but she went out of her way to arrange with one of the neighbors for me to use their wifi. She is a lovely, gracious hostess.
My friends and I would all recommend this place without reservation.
We went to Connemara with my family (4 persons) and we had a wonderful stay at Áine's.She had prepared a turf fire for us (it was still a bit cold in the evening) and bought some groceries! How thoughtful! We had a lovely chat we her and she adviced us where to go and left some flyers about what to see in Connemara. The house is so pleasant to live in, we were so close to the sea and Galway and the ferries to the Aran Islands, it was perfect! We would definitely come back the sooner or later! Thanks again Áine!
