    Our cottage is a unique Irish thatched cottage , which we have lovingly restored and extended. The original house was built in the late 19th century and has been occupied since then. We have just three rooms for guests as we wanted to keep the intimate, friendly atmosphere of a cottage. All guest's rooms have their private facilities. In the evening , all guests are welcome to relax in our sitting room and enjoy a cup of tea, a chat and a laugh , before a warming peat fire. We will be very happy to answer all your questions and advise on your itinerary , during your stay.
    The cottage is surrounded on both sides by mature gardens, where guests are welcome to sit and relax and read a book or admire the scenery. Take a walk around and compare the flowers and scrubs to what yo...

    Additional Location Information
    An Caladh Gearr is located 5klms west of Spiddal on the coast road (R336) and is ideal as a base to tour Conamara or to visit the Aran Islands, also to visit Galway city. This area along the coast is a Gaeltacht, so called because the Irish language is still spoken here in daily life. As a result of this, there is a great appreciation of our Irish culture to be found.
    Conamara has breathtaking beauty with its mountains and lakes and rural landscape. The Aran Islands are full of historic sites and Irish culture. Galway has shops , restaurants , pubs and Irish music. Spiddal, only 5klms away has a brilliant craft centre, where you can pick up some nice gifts. Also it has restaurants and pubs, with Irish music. The surrounding area is lovely for a coastal walk, a beach walk or a bog walk.
    There is a bus service to Galway city and there is private car parking .

The welcome we received was very cordial & warm. The rooms were excellent and comfortable. Advice given for walks was concise & clear. Food was well prepared & service was friendly. If we are in the area in the future we would love to stay there again. more

There were 4 of us, and we stayed 2 nights at beautiful An Caladh Gearr Thatched Cottage by the bay. Thank you, Maura and Michael, for your hospitality, advice, great food and fun times. The garden is lovely and you really went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel comfortable and welcome! more

My sister, friend and I stayed in Maura's beautiful thatched cottage B&B for 4 nights. What a delight. Apart from the cottage itself, Maura went out of her way to accommodate all that we requested. She and Michael were so forthcoming with local information and handy hints. It is in a perfect location for travelling and not far from the...
