About our home

Our house was newly built in 2011 to very high standards. On the ground floor there is a large living and dining room, well-equipped kitchen, snug (cosy living room), laundry, bathroom (with disabled access), double bedroom (190 x 140cm, sleeps 2), and a playroom/TV room (sofa bed 190 x 140cm, sleeps 2). Upstairs there is a large family bathroom (with separate shower and bath), and 3 large bedrooms (one with a double bed (200 x 140cm, sleeps 2), and two with single beds (205 x 110cm; 190 x 100cm, each sleeps 1)). There is ample parking outside and great views over the large garden and countryside beyond. A basketball hoop, barbecue, bikes, golf clubs and tennis rackets are available for your use.

The house is located on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way in peaceful countryside just 400m from the shores of Galway Bay. Peninsulas, islands and bays are a feature of the local coast and attract a great variety of migrating bird species. Birdwatchers may spot Brent geese on nearby Tawin Island, or egrets at Ardfry peninsula. A convenient 15 minute drive brings you to Galway city: Famous for its shopping, Arts Festival, night life, excellent restaurants, and character-filled pubs. Galway is the gateway to scenic Connemara, the spectacular landscapes of the Burren, and to the traditional Irish-speaking communities of the Aran Islands.

The village of Oranmore just 4km away boasts restaurants (8), pubs (4), supermarkets (4), cafés (4), a cinema, bowling and a bakery. Oranmore is well connected by bus and/or train to Dublin, Limerick, Cork, and Galway itself. The house is close to the Galway Bay Golf Resort. Visitors can enjoy a round on a magnificent seaside course designed by former Ryder Cup golfer Christy O’Connor Junior. Other local sporting amenities include: Rinville Park (walking and jogging); the Galway Bay Sailing Club (which offers courses for children and adults); and nearby football pitches and tennis courts.
