The property

This detached, traditional cottage, which is conveniently situated entirely over the ground floor, is just perfect for those seeking a taste of traditional, rural Ireland from this Galway cottage holiday. Situated in a scattered hamlet on the Wild Atlantic Way, 1.5 miles from Kinvara, County Galway, Mickey's Cottage is a cosy, welcoming holiday cottage, which has been decorated preserving some of its wonderful traditional elements, such as the warming oil burning stove surrounded by a large stone hearth in the living room, which gives the room a cosy, traditional feel, just lovely for a romantic night in, cuddled up under a blanket, with a steaming mug of cocoa and the toasty stove burning. The enclosed garden is great for those with small children or pets, and provides a great spot for alfresco dining, while the location is ideal for those looking for a rural retreat, without isolation, as the amenities of Kinvara are just a mile and a half from this Kinvara cottage. Take a stroll along Traught Beach, discover Dunguaire Castle, or revel in the Irish surroundings with some traditional music in one of the many pubs.
