“La maison de Freda est grande et très agréable a vivre. Les enfants se sont bien amusés avec les nombreux jeux extérieurs et interieurs. La Famille est très accueillante. La situation de la maison est idéale pour visiter la plupart des sites touristiques au nord et au sud de Galway. Je recommande vivement cette maison. Merci encore John,Freda et les enfants!!!!”
Freda's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We had a great time in Ireland. The house is very large, nice and comfortable and has lots of toys for the children. Our children also loved the cat! Freda and Johnny had nice little attentions to make our stay pleasant and also when we came back home to Paris. You need to drive for pretty much everything when you live there, but there are very nice sites not too far, including Galway, Burren National Park and the cliffs of Moher. It was a pleasure to do a home exchange with this lovely family. Highly recommended!”
Where is it?
We are located in a small village approximately 3 kms from Gort. We have a small school, church and a little museum. The beautiful forest park of Coole is only 1 kilometre away; this was the ancestral home of Lady Gregory a central figure in the Irish literary revival.
Gort is a large market town which has a number of supermarkets, restaurants and pubs. It is an excellent location for day trips throughout counties Galway and Clare. It is a 10 minute drive to the Burren and the seaside village of Kinvara is also only 10 mins away. The Cliffs of Moher, Lisdoonvarna and the Aliwee Caves are all less then an hour away. We are 2kms from the M18 motorway that links Galway with Limerick/ Cork/ Kerry etc.
It is a half hour drive to Galway city which has a vibrant night life and numerous festivals throughout the year. Salthill, with its beautiful promenade, is a short walk from Galway city. Further west from Galway city lies Connemara and the heart of the Irish Gaeltheacht (native Irish speaking area). It is possible to day trips to the Connemara national park, Westport in County Mayo, the Aran islands and Innisboffin.
