    “Lovely place to stay.”

    Great for travelling around the local visitor attractions. ...

    Great for travelling around the local visitor attractions. We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the home comforts of the cottage. Very welcoming owners who were on site should we have any queries or need anything. It was a little difficult at times to keep our 7 month old pup in as one end of the cottage is rear garden is open so he gave us the slip a few times. A gate both ends would be good but that said, this may not be a problem for older dogs who are less likely to go off exploring! All in all a lovely cottage in a lovely setting which is well woryb

The property

This welcoming, detached barn conversion, set next to the owner’s home, lies 3.5 miles from Loughrea in County Galway.

Providing a wonderfully-placed holiday home for discovering this beautiful part of Ireland, The Stone Cottage offers couples, friends and family groups a bright and airy base, surrounded by stunning scenery.

There is a sociable open plan living area, offering fresh and light accommodation with comfy furnishings, a well–equipped modern kitchen and a cosy dining area.

Two well-furnished bedrooms, each with their own en-suite for added comfort and luxury during your stay, complete the accommodation, which sits entirely across the ground floor.

Outside, you can relax in the sunny patio with a glass of wine; why not take your supper outside and enjoy the fresh country air after a busy day?

You can explore the stunning surrounding landscapes on foot, by bike or even horseback, as the owner is happy to provide stabling by arrangement, in case you’re hoping to discover this beautiful location with the help of your best friend!

The thriving market town of Loughrea is just ten minutes’ drive away, with a medieval history and a wealth of amenities, whilst the crystal clear limestone lake can be found even closer, offering beautiful bathing waters, and showering and changing facilities should you fancy a refreshing dip during the summer season.

Lough Rea is also an internationally important site for waterfowl, as well as providing some of the best trout fishing waters in the country.

The bright city lights of cultural Galway City can be enjoyed in just over forty minutes’ drive, where you can wander its web of winding historical streets, dipping into the interesting shops, museums and art centres before stopping for a pint of the black stuff and a platter of oysters in the bay.

The Wild Atlantic Way can be joined from here, and is definitely worthy of a day trip, with its towering sea cliffs, craggy inlets and 1500 miles of spectacular coastal scenery.

This cosy cottage is sure to welcome you home at the end of each busy day’s adventure.

There is a strong tradition of Irish music in the locality and many pubs stage sessions at night, plus the area has lots to offer, from beautiful countryside, to great restaurants with various types of cuisine and golf in all the towns nearby.
