Other Things to Note
I have three very friendly dogs on the premises. They like to go for walks, play ball and go swimming! But they will leave you alone if you are not interested in them.
The Cuckoo Festival first weekend in May is an Irish traditional festival with lots of top class music in the pubs and cafes.
Cruinniu na mBad, meaning "Gathering of the Boats", is a festival held in August each year, which brings us back in time, to when the majestic Galway Hookers used to transport turf/peat to Kinvara. In 2015 the festival will be held on August 14th to 16th.
Smoking allowed outside:)
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
We spend a (too) short but very pleasant time at Anette's home! She's very welcoming, attentive and give us good advice to visit the beautiful Kinvara area! The breakfast was generous and various. Thank you!
We had a great stay at Anette house.
she was really friendly. She made a great guest book that have all the information about what to do, where to eat, etc..
Arrived too late In the day to make the most of it. Beautiful surroundings and the morning breakfast was very pleasant.
Anette was a friendly woman but our room was to cold for us. The bathroom could be cleaner. I think if you want a very relaxed athmosphere you will be right there.
Annette was a generous host who made me feel welcome. I was only there for a weekend, but it felt like I could have been there much longer. I did not have that sense I was intruding in another person's house. Annette made it easy to settle in. It is gorgeous part of the country side. Lots of mountains (low ones) and sea. Galway has lots go on too.
Staying here was really pleasure, our room was spacious and clean. Anette was kind and gave us good tips.
