    “The house is in a very convenient location just 1 mile from Spiddal, where there are bars shops and a hotel with a very good restaurant.”

    Galway and Salthill are easy to get to along a main route.

    Galway and Salthill are easy to get to along a main route. Sally is a wonderful host, extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived to a basket of lovely fresh baked scones. The house was warm and comfortable and had a really well stocked kitchen with lots of pots, pans and dishes. Would definitely recommend staying here.

About the location


Furbogh 4 miles; Galway City 12 miles; Oranmore 16 miles.

The small seaside village of Spiddal, on the Irish Coast, overlooks Galway Bay and the Aran Islands, and is a very popular destination for visitors. With numerous restaurants and pubs, two beaches and a lovely coastal golf course it has something to suit all tastes. Located close to Shannagarraun Wood, a Special Area of Conservation, Spiddal provides lovely places to walk and explore. Try sea fishing off the pier, take a walk down Tra na mBan Blue Flag sandy beach or indulge in a round of golf at Rosshill Golf Course. Only 12 miles to the east lies Galway City, where you can discover some of Ireland's long and varied history; visit Lynch's Castle, or trace the origin of the famous Claddagh Ring, which originated in a village near the shore of Galway Bay. Why not take a day trip to the Aran Islands? Catch a ferry from Rosaveel, or, alternatively, charter a boat and take a leisurely journey to one of the three islands. A lovely coastal village, not to be missed.
