This welcoming cottage near Moycullen has been finished with a contemporary design to offer a comfortable base for families and friends in need of a Galway escape, with four bright bedrooms, each providing a pleasant place to retire to at the end of the day. The spacious kitchen has a woodburner and a bright breakfast area, while the separate, airy dining area has large patio doors opening to the garden. The cosy sitting room at this Moycullen cottage room has a large TV, and with its open fire it offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere for guests to relax together and enjoy a DVD on leisurely evenings. If you decide to take an evening to discover Galway’s culture, then you can head into the village to the welcoming bars and enjoy a hearty Irish dish. Outside this cottage in County Galway is a lawned area where on sunny occasions, why not take your breakfast out onto the patio as you prepare for a day filled with discovery?

For fans of the great outdoors, this area of County Galway is a wonder, with lovely walks, cycling and horse riding within easy reach. Lough Corrib is well regarded as an angler’s haven, with its vast waters on the doorstep of this Moycullen cottage, along with that of nearby Ross Lake and Bally Quirke.
