“Even better than we expected!”

Three words: beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. The place, the people, the house.

We've rented homes on a number of trips but we were just a bit skeptical of this one because there was only one review. As it turned out, it was even better than we expected.

The view of Galway Bay from all the rooms was incredible. The pub just two doors away was very convenient, the food was terrific, and the staff and patrons were incredibly welcoming.

We did day trips to Connemara, Galway, Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher. We took hikes along the Flaggy Shore (right by the house), the Green Road, and lots of other places.

Kinvara, the closest town, had all that we needed including a small but nice farmer's market on Fridays and wonderful music at Connolly's on Sunday.

Bernadette and Seamus, the owners, are wonderful people. They live in Galway and sometimes stay in a suite attached to the house but no worries, it's still very private. As there were just two of us, we hardly even set foot upstairs.

The only caution, if you've never driven in a place with teeny tiny roads, prepare yourself for some angst. It takes a bit of getting used to.

BTW, there's a house a couple of doors down that is also a rental that we saw on VRBO. Fortunately, as photographers we noticed that they had photo-shopped the power lines out of the picture of the view from their house. We would have very disappointed had we rented it.

Stayed here with family for the last couple of years.Cant recommend accommodation highly enough. Very spacious,clean and great location/base for discovering the Burren and beyond. Local pub only a short stroll away and full of characters with great Trad sessions,brilliant seafood also!
