Our house is located 20 minutes drive from Galway City and is 5 minutes from the local medieval town of Athenry in the village of Monivea. Athenry is a well known town by virtue of the song 'The fields of Athenry'.

The space

The room available is a Double room En suite which can fit two people. It has a mini-fridge, Hairdryer and kettle. The prices for nightly, weekly and monthly are inclusive of breakfast.

Guest access

Guests have access to kitchen and living room. However these are not separate from our living quarters so these areas are shared . We also have a pool table in an apartment at the rear of the house which the guests can use. There is a patio with table and chairs in the back garden which the guests can access when they please.

Interaction with guests

I will be in the house most of the time during the guests stay and will be available to offer assistance when required. I can offer transport to Galway/ Athenry if arranged in advance.

When you stay with Maura, you are staying in a genuine Irish home, not a sterile B & B. Everything is about a decades-long ownership of a lovely country home and property where children were loved and raised into successful adulthood by her. Family photos and memories are everywhere, and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking my breakfast in Laura's kitchen each morning. The villages nearby are lovely, and Galway is within easy driving distance. You will need a car to get around! For me, staying with Maura was a wonderful experience that I will never forget. The bed was fine, closet space was ample, and the shower was great, always hot and ready for a rinse. If you want to enjoy the experience of living with a local, this is your ticket!

Maura met me at the bus in Galway and when I left she drove me to the train in Athenry (I had no car). In all honesty, it is a necessity to have a car for this home as it is one mile out of Monivea village, no footpath for walking. There is no Monivea bus frequently scheduled or designated bus stop near the home. And it is 9 km to Athenry. Maura was very accommodating and drove me everywhere for which I paid her. She is very knowledgeable about Galway and the area. In the home, I had an ensuite room, use of the washer, use of the kitchen. The shower always had hot water and was very powerful. It was nice to meet Maura and her daughter, and I thank them for the time spent in their home.

Maura was very warm and welcoming. She was good-humoured, and had plenty of time for a chat. She made us feel at home and was concerned for our well-being. The location was lovely and quiet. Maura met us in the village to make sure we didn't get lost. The bedroom was comfortable and the ensuite shower was powerful. Thank you Maura for everything.

Jag bodde hos Maura två veckor i maj när jag besökte min dotter. Beskrivningen av omgivningen, huset och rummet stämmer precis. Det är lantligt beläget och är lugnt och tyst. Rummet har vad som behövs, sängen är skön och det är gott om varmvatten i duschen. Det är första gången jag bott hos någon jag inte känner och det var en positiv erfarenhet. Maura är gästvänlig och alltid redo att hjälpa till om det behövs. Hon har tips och information om vad som finns att göra i närheten. Det ligger som sagt lantligt så det är bra att Maura vid behov kan köra till t.ex stationen. Jag fick varje morgon skjuts till min dotter och det underlättade mycket för oss.

Maura est une personne très accueillante et chaleureuse avec beaucoup d'humour. Elle possède cette belle qualité de mettre à l'aise son hôte. Elle nous a donné de nombreux conseils pour nous aider à circuler. Le logement est très agréable car garantit confort et indépendance. Nous avons bénéficié du calme d'une petite ville et de la proximité avec Galway. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de Maura et de notre séjour chez elle.

Hi there, I live outside Galway City in the village of Monivea with my Daughter.
I love hosting to travelers and offering them advice on the sights to see in Galway! I will be able to offer you transport If needed and arranged in advance. I can also offer full board basis or use of the kitchen If you would prefer to cook yourself!
