Cozy Cottage on Galway Bay W/Fabulous Sea and Burren Views

Located in: Ballyvaughan
NOTE: We normally rent from Saturday to Saturday, so please try to honor those days if at all possible. If you MUST make an exception, please ask to see if we can work it out for you.

We feel we have one of the best views in Ireland, located right on Galway Bay on the 'Wild Atlantic Way', and in a picturesque, friendly little village only 1 hour from Shannon Airport. The cottage also has great views of the famous Burren Mountains out back. We know you would enjoy your stay here as much as we have so many times for 28 years.
The owners have lived in the cottage full time from 2007 to 2010 and have made many improvements inside and out during this time. The cottage is completely re-wired, and new kitchen cabinets installed. We also have made an effort to present this as a typical 1950's cottage. Because of this you may find some inconveniences, however we have tried our best to make you comfortable. The cottage has a queen bed in the master BR, and two single beds in the small BR, so it comfortably sleeps 4. The living room has 2 full sized Futon couches, which could sleep 2 more adults, but, with only one bathroom and the cottage being quite small, it is too tight for more than 4 people, unless you are VERY friendly!
Ballyvaughan village is a one mile picturesque walk along the coast, and has a variety of shops worth visiting as well as a number of fine pubs and restaurants. Spar market also has a wide range of food you can purchase if you want to cook at home, and the cottage is equipped with most every cooking utensil you might need. Traditional music can be heard at some of the pubs in town on certain nights - you'll have to inquire as to schedules, etc. Music starts around 10PM.
The Ballyvaughan area is a mecca for walking and a Burren trail map is available at Spar Market in the village centre. There is a fine beach off the road to Kinvara about 2 miles outside the village known as Bishop's Quarter. The College of the Burren (Art College), off the road to Lisdoonvarna, has a walking trail as well as a restored castle worth seeing. Rainy day activities include Ailwee Cave, not far from town, which features prehistoric bear dens in addition to impressive stalactites and stalagmites. It also has an excellent gourmet shop worth visiting, with Burren made cheese and other tasty treats.
For the golfers, Lahinch is only a half hour drive, and the Galway Bay golf course in Oranmore features a fabulous setting on the Bay and is only a 45 minute drive as well.
If you are not driving or don't want to drive, there are two efficient taxi services in town, and there are bus schedules in the cottage to Galway and other areas with return times. These leave from Spar Market in town. We think you would have a great time here.
