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.

Our stay with Brian was excellent. He provided great advice on the region and also provided us with a comfortable place to stay. I would recommend this Air BnB to anyone that is staying in the Galway area.
A fantastic few days in beautiful surroundings. Brian himself has been a first class host and shown us some real gems we wouldn't have come across by ourselves. Comfy, homely base to explore from and a genuinely enthusiastic and knowledgeable host to point you in the right direction and maybe have a pint with too!
Ireland is wonderful, it is full of amazing landscapes, and hidden magic views.
Galway bay is so nice and it is great to wake up and enjoy this amazing view on the ocean!
The cottage was very good, very comfortable and heart warming!
Brian helped us a lot to enjoy at maximum our journey, and guided us to the best places, from the little port restaurant, to a really nice pub in the village, and without forgetting to tell us the best place to have an amazing view on Connemara and Cliffs of Moher...
We enjoyed as well the city of Galway, and we've been partying in a really nice St Partick's atmosphere, where people are very friendly and know how to party!
Being Irish and being friendly and welcoming, looks like synonyms :-)
Thanks a lot Brian, for this really nice experience!

Brian was great! He took us in to town when he picked up his son and gave us a little mini tour of Galway. He is very knowledgeable and gave us great tips on where to go and what to see.
The cottage was lovely and had all the amenities one could hope for. The washing machine was a blessing since we had only carry on luggage for the two weeks we stayed in Ireland. I will recommend this cottage to friends.
We had a wonderful experience at the Up Away Cottage. Brian was a great host and his tips and historical insight really made the past come alive. I would definatley recommend staying here and would stay again.
Everything was perfect. Gracious host, ultra clean and well-equipped.
We really had a great stay at Brian's, he was the perfect host and I can only recommend staying here. Having a car is recommendable but Brian also gave us a lift into town and the number of his local taxi driver.
Brian also prepared basics like bread, tea, milk and pasta and many more for us to use and gave us great tips on what to do when and where to go. The house is lovely and there is more than enough space for 2-4 people, the area is amazing and on a good day you have a great view of Galway Bay and even see the Black Head and the Cliffs of Moher.
If you want to have a great and quiet stay in the counrtyside of beautiful Ireland then this really is the place for you. Thanks so much for having us Brian!
Unser Aufenthalt hier war total klasse, Brian war der perfekte Gastgeber, er hat uns ueber alles wichtige aufgeklaert, uns Tips gegeben was wir wann machen koennten, wo wann live Musik ist und wo wir hinfahren koennten um die Landschaft zu geniessen.
Das Haus ist total klasse, schoen gross und sehr ruhig. Wir hatten eine super Zeit und ich kann dieses Listing nur jedem empfehlen.
This accommodation comes very highly recommended. It is clean and modern, everything in perfect working order. But what sets this place apart from others is that Brian is a fantastic host, he welcomed me and my friends with such warmth, giving us everything that we needed to enjoy our stay in Galway. He drove us into town so we could enjoy a night out, pointing out the good pubs to go to and giving us a history of the town. I'm just sorry we couldn't stay longer. This is a definite must stay!
I can only say positive things about my experience. Brian was incredibly helpful and kind and I would say went above and beyond what is expected of a host. The cottage is even better in person and had everything my partner and I needed and more. My only regret is not staying longer. I will definitely stay here again if in Ireland and will recommend this place to everyone. I think a longer stay is best so that you have time to visit and see everything and I think renting a car is a good idea and one I will keep in mind for next time. But no complaints about the place or the host!
Brian was a wonderful host! He was very welcoming and has a wealth of knowledge about the area which he is happy to share. The cottage was beautiful! and well appointed. It is very spacious (hard to tell that in the pictures), and spotless. His sweet pup 'Puff' kept watch over us which was an added bonus!
