The property

For a magical break away on the wonderful west coast of Ireland, look no further than this fairytale stone-built cottage, just a short walk from the pretty fishing village of Kinvara, in County Galway. Complete with a thatched roof and lovely exposed beams, this cottage is perfect for a family or a group of friends looking for a break away to remember. Step inside and you’ll see the sitting room’s rustic feature fireplace, complete with woodburning stove, ideal to snuggle up in front of during the chillier months. Walk into the well-equipped kitchen and you’ll find plenty of room to prepare a delicious meal featuring the catch of the day, straight from Kinvara’s harbour and you can enjoy your dinner alfresco in the front garden. With bedrooms on each floor, as well as a shower room and a bathroom, there’s space for all the family. When you decide to venture into the village of Kinvara, you’ll be rewarded by a fine selection of shops, pubs and restaurants and you simply must pay a visit to Dunguaire Castle, an impressive building steeped in history, hosting spectacular medieval banquets from April to September, featuring theatrical performance, music, rhyme and song. This village lies on the breathtaking Wild Atlantic Way, the longest coastal route in Europe, taking in an abundance of stunning seascapes, sandy beaches and striking sea cliffs. A great day out can be had by all when taking a boast trip across to the starkly beautiful Aran Islands, whilst attractions such as Traught beach, The Cliffs of Moher and Doolin caves are also within easy reach. Galway City is also within reach and boasts a wide array of historic sites, traditional taverns and interesting shops, as is the delightful town Lisdoonvarna, where fun can be had at the annual Matchmaking Festival. With all this and more, just waiting to be discovered, The Well House is the perfect property from which to begin your Irish adventure.
