About This Listing

Quiet peaceful duplex chalet apartment in a farmland country location near to Kinvara, Co. Galway in the Western Coast of Ireland. Available on a weekend /weekly/short term basis comprises 2 bedrooms ( one ensuite ) capable of sleeping up to 5. On the ground floor is the living room kitchen combined. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms ( ensuite master room with a king and single bed ) + other small box room ( single bed ) + a small storage room/office. Downstairs to the rear at garden level is a sauna, shower and wc. Front facing patio leads to the garden and looks on to nearby woodland.

The chalet is within walking distance of the small country village of Labane. Is also a short drive approx. 5kms from Kinvara Fishing Harbour, Gort Heritage town and situated at the edge of nearby Coole Park Nature Reserve & Visitor Centre. Situated circa 200ft over sea level it has lovely private views of the Sliabh Aughty and Burren mountains . Perhaps on a clear starry night you might glimpse the glittering lights of Galway city stretch out across the Bay from the Coast Road .Galway Bay and the hills of Connemara are in the horizon. The sunset on the horizon is amazing as is the wonderful feeling of waking up to the birdsong in spring.

Probably the clearest air in Western Europe and undoubtedly the cleanest private crystal mineral water supply, pumped from 300 ft of underlying natural limestone rock . If quiet peace and tranquility this is the place for you. Crann Mor ( gaelic for big tree ) is ideal if touring Clare or Galway. A short drive from Clarenbridge,of world renowned Oyster Festival fame or 30 minutes from Galway city & Shannon Airport.
