Location

Galway, Ireland

The peace and tranquility of the mountain we live on, the views are spectacular, over the nearby lake and bog, across Galway Bay, to the Burren, The Cliffs, and the Aran Islands. At night the stars are literally popping out of the sky and the lights of the villages across the bay are twinkling in response.

During your stay
I try to give my guests as much privacy as they wish, but I endeavour to spend some time with them, showing them the best touring routes and sites to visit. I also provide a ride to Barna village in my car if they wish, time permitting.
