County Galway Holiday Cottages
Welcome to the west of Ireland and the county of Galway, where a
kaleidoscope of sights and adventures awaits, not to mention some
fabulous County Galway cottages. Although it's growing rapidly,
vibrant Galway City exudes an almost village-like ambience, its
cobbled lanes brimming with brightly coloured shops and pubs.
Renowned the world over for its exceptional entertainments scene,
this is the place to come for music, song, dance and culture.
Expect banjos, fiddles, harps, tin whistles, jugglers, painters,
poets - and more! And don't forget to sample the local oysters.
For spellbinding scenery on a grand scale - pewter-tinged peaks,
glossy black lakes and remote valleys - the Connemara region never
fails to impress, taking in a huge sweep of the county as well as
the idyllic island of Inishbofin, the Aran Islands and the prize
fishing lakes of Mask and Corrib. The wild natural beauty and
ever-changing moods have bewitched generations of writers, artists
and musicians - little wonder the area claims so many visitors'
Discover sleepy seaside hamlets or enjoy the 'great
outdoors', with magnificent walking, cycling and horse-riding,
championship golf and a variety of daring adventure sports.
Connemara is also the greatest stronghold of the Irish language -
so savour the dulcet tones and experience true Irish culture,
especially on the islands. Indeed, the Aran Islands offer a
deliciously slow pace of life and an air of timelessness. Cycle
along narrow lanes, walk along pristine beaches, explore ancient
stone forts, or enjoy the 'craic' in a lively local pub.
