Very comfortable little house about 15 minutes outside of Galway. We are from the U.S. and spent Christmas here with our daughter who is working in Dublin. Kate was nice to work with and even brought by scones and tea upon our arrival. She also helped get the heat turned on. There were a few things that kept me from rating this home better. The first is that the back bedroom that my husband and I stayed in smelled extremely musty and damp. The smell didn't dissipate even after the house got warmed up, and when we got home all of my clothing still smelled musty. Second, when showering, the water gets all over the bathroom floor. There is a shower curtain, but no barrier to keep the water in. With only one bath mat provided, we had to put towels on the floor so feet didn't get wet whenever anyone needed to use the bathroom. And finally, there was only one roll of toilet paper in the house, and there were 5 of us! Luckily, we realized this before the stores closed for Christmas day, otherwise we would have really been stuck! There is no view of the ocean - the beach is not far, but you have to drive to it. Overall, it was a nice quiet place to spend with family.
this house is beautiful and in a very peaceful environment. there is everything you need nearby and it's the perfect location for an relaxing holiday with comfortable nights at the fire place. We didn't even want to leave anymore because Ireland is a wonderful country with very nice and helpful people :) we will definetly come back to that place one day
We really enjoyed our stay in Kate's cottage in barna. Very close to all beaches and water sports in rusheen bay. Nice garden and comfortable beds. Highly recommend Donnellys for seafood. Kate is a very effective communicator and ensured our stay was friendly.

This cottage is ideal for a family with young children.We spent a wonderful week here and would highly recommend it.Peaceful location clean and well equipped house. Close to all amenities lovely beaches and Salthill only ten minutes in the car.
My partner and I used this cottage as a base to experience Galway and the surrounding area of Connemara last year, and found it to be the perfect location to fulfill this purpose, especially as it's generously nestled between Galway city, the seaside and the greater West.
Kate and Carlos were extremely professional and friendly, kept both the cottage and the gardens in beautiful condition and made us feel very welcome.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage and would highly recommend it as an idyllic holiday home.
