We arrived early in the day here after a long flight and a three hour drive from Dublin and Vera and Bartley were so kind to allow us to stay and make ourselves at home while they prepared our room. The house is beautifully decorated, as are the grounds. We had a nice room in the back overlooking Galway Bay. We met interesting people at breakfast each morning, and Vera's cooking was well received. She's a wealth of knowledge of things to see and do in Spiddal and surrounding areas. She gave us a map to follow for the road to Connemara and marked our route with precision. We followed her advice and had a wonderful scenic drive the next day. While in Spiddal we ate at An Cruiscin Lan and Peppino's. Both were good!
