Lovely, spacious, comfortable cottage with excellent accessibility to the beauty of Connemara and the Aran Islands. Galway City is nearby as well. Brian was a responsive, accommodating and informative host who gave us excellent tips on what to see in the short time we had, as well as fabulous restaurants. We stayed three nights-- wish we had a week!

Staying at Brian's was as simple and comfortable as can be. Plenty of space and all the conveniences you'd need to feel at home made for a relaxing jumping-off point to explore the Galway area.

Brian's place was beautiful! Right outside Galway city but felt like you were in the country. We loved staying here. When we got there one of the beds did not have clean sheets so we had to wash them ourselves. This was probably due to the fact that Brian was gone while we came and someone else was caring for the house. Outside of that everything was great though!

Living in the west of Ireland, blessed by good health, fair weather, gorgeous views of Galway Bay the Burren and the Aran Islands on the horizon, I am a lucky so and so. Glad to share the wonderful Connemara scenery with visitors to my house.
