Located in: Galway »
If you are planning on visiting Galway City, but are also keen to enjoy a bit of 'down-time' in a rural setting- then this property is definitely for you. Located only 2 miles from the centre of Galway City this property is perfect both for those wishing to enjoy a city break, as well as day-tripping to Connemara, The Burren - or perhaps doing a bit of fishing on Lough Corrib.

'The Barn' is a genuine vernacular West of Ireland stone structure which is located in what was once the working farmyard of Leitriff House, a Victorian House built in 1840. The present owners have restored the building and created a very unique contemporary accommodation without losing the character of the property.

Within one mile there are shops where provisions can be obtained such as; groceries, video rentals, health foods, pharmaceuticals... and two miles; restaurants, cafés, pubs, shops, galleries, cinemas, golfing, horseback riding, swimming, beach, lake- and much more.

This unique holiday accommodation is a unique combination of creating a contemporary space within a vernacular building unique to the west of Ireland. This granite stone farm building dates from the early 1800s.This unique holiday accommodation offers a combination of contemporary and vernacular features and furnishings. It is bright, cozy, comfortable and spacious. Entering the house you are immediately struck by the generosity of open space and light levels which is afforded by the oversized windows and skylight. On the ground floor is a large open-plan living space with modern fully equipped kitchen, large dining table and plenty of room for relaxing by the wood burning stove. A glass patio door opens out to a very private space for relaxing. A spiral staircase takes you up to the livingroom on the mezzanine floor - from there the second spacious bedroom with its en-suite bathroom is accessed over a 'bridge' . All the rooms have wide recycled pitch pine floors and exposed stone walls in places.The back of the barn faces out onto a meadow field bordered by stone walls, a boreen and large trees. Free WIFI, cable television and DVD player. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and the dining area can seat six. One of the two double bedrooms is located on this ground floor with floor-to-ceiling glass double doors which can be opened to make the ground floor space totally open plan. next door to this is one of the bathrooms with an enclosed shower.

There are two bedrooms with good quality 5ft wide double beds. For those who may require a different type of sleeping arrangement there is a good quality daybed located in the mezzanine living area.

The Barn accommodates 4 adults comfortably. Bedroom 1 (with with large double bed - 5ft wide) is on the ground floor next to a bathroom with shower. Bedroom 2 is upstairs and has an en-suite bathroom with shower. There is also a very comfortable daybed to accommodate a 5th guest. The beds all have quality mattresses and are dressed with allergy-free bedding (duvets, pillows, and extra blankets). A baby cot and seat for feeding can be provided. Guests should bring their own baby blankets.
A radio, clock and hair-dryers are provided.

Both bathrooms in this accommodation are new, tiled and have quality fittings. Both have glass shower enclosures with power showers and non-slip shower mats for your safety. Extractor fans are fitted in both bathrooms. Towels, soap, and toilet paper are supplied. The oil fired Central heating system heats radiators and provides ample hot water.

The house is fully planning compliant with fire and smoke alarm system wired in.

Washing machine and tumble dryer
There is a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer located at the property which can be used by guests building. This facility is used by two houses, so we make an arrangement that one house has the use in the morning and the other in the afternoon- this ensures that your privacy is respected. There is a charge of €8 per load
(wash and dry with detergents, etc included in this cost).

There is plenty of secure parking space in the yard .

Although we have animals - dog, cats, pony - these are not allowed into the house as we fully appreciate that this can cause problems for guests who suffer from allergies. For this reason we do not allow pets.
