The property

Set just seven miles from Kinvara, a popular village in County Galway is this lovely, detached cottage, situated on a quiet laneway that overlooks Galway Bay. Providing a modern, bright space, this renovated cottage is well-decorated and furnished and offers excellent quality throughout, meaning it’s the perfect spot for a romantic, peaceful retreat. At the centre of the cottage is the sitting room, complete with a multi-fuel stove providing added comfort and warmth during your holiday. Two well-presented bedrooms lead off from the sitting room and both will ensure a peaceful night’s sleep, filled with dreams of what adventures there are still to come. After a busy day exploring the Wild Atlantic Way, you’ll love returning to prepare and enjoy your home-cooked meal in the kitchen and dining area, where you can discuss the next day’s plans. Sit, relax and take in the panoramic views of Galway Bay. On a clear day you will also be able to see right across to Barna and Spiddal in Connemara. The iconic 18th century Aughnish Martello Tower is only a stone’s throw from your front door and was built to guard Galway Harbour’s entrance from French invasion. Kinvara is a popular, vibrant seaport village that is set on the main Galway to Clare route and provides fantastic access to the two counties with many attractions such as Doolin Cave, The Burren, Tracht beach, the majestic Cliffs of Moher and many more. Boasting an array of pubs, shops and, of course, the 16th century Dunguaire Castle, Kinvara is a wonderful place to visit and is ideal for exploring Ireland’s beautiful west coast.
