Enjoy a choice of two sitting rooms, each with comfortable leather suites to sink into, one with a cosy solid fuel stove to settle beside, the perfect addition after a busy day. Upstairs you’ll discover four comfy bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, along with a family bathroom. Little guests will adore the outside space at this fantastic holiday home, with the garden wrapping round the property, offering large lawns and a sandpit – providing hours of fun on sunny afternoons! Take a seat on the patio, enjoy an alfresco meal or a morning coffee in the fresh air, before setting out on an adventure. Spend a shady afternoon beneath the tall pines of the nearby Carrabane Forest Wood, a wonderful wooded walk with picnic area, offering a tranquil, looping trail and set literally on your doorstep, with access at the end of the lane. While away an afternoon browsing the shops in Loughrea, stop for coffee or practise your swing at the golf course before taking a stroll around the lake. For those seeking evening entertainment, this cottage is wonderfully placed as just 50 yards away is Galway’s only pub theatre, which plays host to a range of plays, live music and comedy concerts throughout the year. Venture towards the bright lights of bohemian Galway City, just forty minutes’ drive away, with its ancient architecture merged with a trendy contemporary arts scene. Hunt for handmade keepsakes in the colourful shops, or simply sit back in one of the waterside eateries, with a platter of fresh Galway Oysters, whilst watching the world pass you by. A day trip along the Wild Atlantic Way will not disappoint, where stunning sights can be enjoyed from every twist and turn of the coastal roads, from soaring sea cliffs set above the roaring waves to hidden coves and sweeping sandy bays ringed with sheep-dotted greenery. There are many wonderful things to enjoy from this property; a very comfortable and well-furnished holiday home, waiting to welcome you home at the end of each day.
