Where is it?
We live in a rural area which is mainly agriculutral although there are a lot of new houses close to us built by the extended families of the local landowners. The locals are very friendly and you will get a true taste of west of Ireland life. There are lots of sheep cows and horses. The area is very quiet and mostly you will just hear sheep bleating or horses hooves on the road but little else.
We are 20 minutes from Galway city and within minutes of the N17 to Galway which also brings you north to beautiful Sligo and Donegal.
We are 10 minutes from the main Galway to Dublin motorway and it takes approximately two and a half hours to get to Dublin from our house.
There are a lot of festivals in Galway over the summer, the Galway Arts festival and the Galway Races are the biggest events in Galway every year. We are 15 minutes from Ballybritt racecourse. There is always a choice of live music and culutral events in Galway as well as markets and lots of street entertainment.
We are 20 minutes from the main Galway/Limerick/Cork road also which brings you to Clare, the burren, the Cliffs of Moher, Kerry and West Cork.
Beyond Galway is spectacular Connemara, with wild landscapes fantastic for long drives. Pets are welcome but as it is a rural agrucultural area with farm animals it would depend on the type of pet.
