Welcome to Ronan's airbnb. This beautiful home is situated 1.2km from the center of the picturesque village of Kinvara and boasts a beautifully landscaped garden. Kinvara is the perfect place base for your trip around South Galway and North Clare.
From my house there is a footpath all the way to the village which makes it safe for walking -no problem to get home from the pub if you are out late.
In the village there is an outdoor pursuits shop where Mike hires out bikes for 14euros per day which covers all insurance and safety gear ; lots of interesting and quite biking routes around here ; either inland to the Burrren or out onto remote peninsulas and islands.Lots to see in terms of ancient monuments and natural landscape.
This 1940's home has been welcoming guests for many years. The house is full of character and charm and all rooms are large and spacious. There is a kitchen for your use as well as laundry.
There is wifi internet connection to all room. There is lots of entertainment at the local village or else enjoy the comfort of staying in and sitting by a log fire.
DIRECTIONS; Continue out of Kinvara on the Ballyvaughan road heading west. After 1km there is another petrol station on the right and then a church, I am the second house on the left after this (DUPLEX / SEMIDETACHED). If you travel by bus then you can request the friendly bus driver to drop you outside the front door as this is a recognized drop-off point .

Lovely stay. This was my second time staying with Ronan, and I have recommended him to others who have stayed there too.
The house was perfect, fire was lighting when we arrived.
As we were running a race in Kinvara, Ronan made sure there was plenty of hot water for baths. Very considerate.
Wir waren recht erschrocken, als wir das Haus von Ronan gefunden hatten. Auf den Bildern hat er trefflich die schönsten Sachen fotografiert. Leider konnte man darauf nicht erkennen, dass er viele Projekte angefangen und nur wenige vollkommen beendet hat. Die Schlafzimmer und Bad waren sauber, wenn man davon absieht. dass der Bauschaum vom Fenster setzen noch nicht beseitigt wurde, oder der obere Absatz im 2. Stock noch keine Fliesen hat. Ronan ist ein Lebenskünstler, er war im Garten als wir ankamen, ein wirklich netter, freundlicher Mann, er hat uns auch direkt die Heizung an geschalten. Er hat noch sehr viele Ideen. Es ist sicherlich ein fantastischer Anlaufpunkt wenn er mal fertig ist und die Baustelle, die natürlich während unseres Aufenthalts still stand, fertig ist.
Ronan's cottage is a beautiful spot with an easy going set up. The kitchen was functional with a lovely table overlooking the unique garden. By far the nicest feature is the wood burning stove which is perfect for a cosy night in.
We were a small party visiting Western Ireland and Ronan's place worked out very well for us. We arrived late, and Ronan was kind enough to make arrangements and welcome us. We could have had several others with us on this trip and still been very comfortable as the house has several bedrooms. My daughter LOVED the back garden and spent the morning running and exploring until we packed the car to explore the Flaggy shore, Burren, castles and Cliffs of Moher. Great stay. Thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ronan’s cottage, which is in a pretty area with beautiful rural surroundings. The cottage had everything that we needed in the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms (note there is not a working hairdryer). The cottage is lovely and cosy and full of interesting furniture and art – and the garden is full of interesting things also! Ronan himself was incredibly helpful and accommodating and made us feel welcome, putting on the wood burner before we arrived (which was definitely well used in our January visit)!
We arrived in the dark so found the directions difficult to follow, particularly as there is a Topaz petrol station and nearby church in Kinvara village itself – you need to ignore these two and continue west out of the village where there is a second petrol station (currently boarded up without a Topaz sign) and church. The cottage is then on the left after these.
Ronan was a discrete and nice host. As we arrived 2 hours later due to a flat tyre, a fire was lit in the house which was a real pleasure and Ronan had waited for us.
The house is cosy and you feel at home. The descritpion on the ad should be a little updated as in the house there are 2 bedrooms and not 3 and there is no jaccuzzi, or maybe it's only used in the summer.
It was a very pleasant stay in this arty and comfortable home. Kinvara is a very strategic location and a nice little town close to Galway, on the wild atlantic way and close to major point of interest (cliffs of Moher 50km away and the Burren national park).
L'hôte est discret et serviable nous n'avons rien à lui reprocher à ce sujet, mais nous avons été déçu par l'ensemble de la prestation qui ne correspondait pas vraiment à l'idée que nous nous faisions après lecture de la description des lieux et au vue des photos:
- 2 Salles d'eau (alors qu'une seule se trouve dans la maison)
- 1 jacuzzi alors qu'en réalité c'est une baignoire (peut être la barrière de la langue)
- maison encore en travaux
Pour nous en dessous de ce que nous recherchions.
Du coup nous y avons juste dormi et nous n'avons pas profité des "commodités" de la maison.
Mais bon séjour malgré tout ça !!!!

Hey ,I'm Ronan .I am a creative and energetic person. I am all accepting of other peoples beliefs and quirks! This is my third year as an Airbnb host.
So ... My interest in architecture has lead me to travel to places like Greece , Italy and Egypt . This education has inspired much of the garden art, which can be seen at my place. I enjoy wine at the end of the day and I like to cook. I believe in looking at the bright side of life and remaining positive. My dream is finally realized to be able to spend most of my time at home to create a unique living environment. To be totally honest ... I must be a bit crazy... I have all these creative projects that I must complete, .well.... I have designed and built my home to be a peaceful yet imaginative place. I live in another beautiful home which I am building next door. My aim is to give all my visiting guests as much space and privacy as they need .
My " Cottage" listing is a private apartment with on large bedroom with a double and two single beds . Also someone could sleep on the couch downstairs .
My "Guest House" listing is another private apartment and includes 2 twin rooms ( double and single beds ) but if needed /or available, can join up to the Cottage via a corridor and then a third bedroom is accessible.
So...... understand .... I have 2 listings at the moment but it is all the one property , each part being completely private.
Another bedroom with bathroom is available in the gatehouse in the courtyard .
I have a laundry room with washer and drier.
