The property

Situated 5 miles from the small seaside village of Spiddal, County Galway, is this large, detached ground floor cottage, a traditional Galway cottage dating back to 1952. Inside, this traditional cottage still retains many original features, and guests can enjoy the cosy open fire, and the built-in seating that it provides. With delightful views over Galway Bay, Paddy Staffs Cottage is a Galway holiday cottage you won't want to miss out on! From the cottage, you can enjoy calming views over Galway Bay; light a fire, sit back, and allow yourself to completely relax as you gaze over the bay from the comfort of your Galway cottage. Alternatively, sit outside on the patio area and light the BBQ for a meal together alfresco. Take the 5 minute stroll down to the beach where you can enjoy coastal walks and sea fishing, or enjoy the traditional music and craft shops of Spiddal village.
