Galway International Arts Festival coming soon. Be on hand for some amazing events, fun and entertainment. Then slip away to a peaceful location by the sea on the Wild Atlantic Way to rest ....before going back for more. A large garden to sit in. Beautiful inspiring landscape
Our house is in an area named Minna, Inverin which is on the coast road,the R336,in a rural setting yet only a straight run of 40 minutes from Galway and Spiddal village just 15 minutes away whete there is a great festival of the arts and traditional music at the end of June,in Connemara on the shores of Galway Bay , and the sea/beach is just at the end of our road. It is our family home and we are a creative group of people. I work in Arts and Crafts, We have an organic garden and orchard, and we also have three cats and a dog so this keeps us busy. . Our house is filled with art, colour, warmth, and is peaceful.This is an inspiring landscape for artists,poets,writers,musicians and anyone moved to create.
The room has a double bed, and plenty of storage with an open plan wardrobe and chest of drawers with a shared bathroom.
We'll provide tea, coffee, free range eggs,juice and toast for breakfast, but we're open to other arrangements by request.
As for local attractions, we are very near the airport that services the Aran islands and also near the port for getting a ferry to the islands. In the nearby fishing village of Spiddal there is a craft village where traditional crafts such as weaving and pottery may also have a contemporary twist or prehaps get a unique irish language print t shirt and finish up with a visit to the cafe. Walk along the bog roads with stunning vista of the Twelve Pins mountains range. We are about an hours drive from Connemara National Park. In nearby Leenane there are great seaweed baths ,perfect after a days hiking !There are also great walks to be taken on the sea shore There are plenty of friendly pubs, music, places to eat. a beach nearby for swimming, fishing from the shore or a chance to go on a boat from Spiddal which is just 13 kilometers away. There is a bus service which takes about 40 minutes, but occasionally faster depending on traffic.

We live in Inverin on the Wild Atlantic Way right by the sea known locally as Cois Fhairrige.. I have worked as a handweaver and in recent years earned a degree in textiles / sculpture here in Galway. Most recently i have worked in film as a costume assistant. We keep an organic garden and also have our own orchard. We spend nearly eight months of the year out and about, working the garden, saving turf, traipsing up and down to the beach which the dog adores, going on rambles, finding artistic inspiration . I am an avid reader, love films, gathering together with friends for food ,wine and chat. Going for long walks on the shore.Ours is a relaxed family home .
