About our home

I am situated about a one hour drive west of Galway city. My home is set amidst the rugged Connemara landscape with sea and mountain views. The property is one of five set in a large but secluded spot. The two focal points of the property are the lounge, which has three very comfortable and luxurious sofas, a stone fireplace with a wood burning stove and six windows overlooking the sea and mountains; ideal for relaxing after a day exploring the beauty of Connemara!. Double doors lead to a large office/sitting room with very large picture windows looking directly to the sea and mountains. The room has a large sloping atrium with 4 velux windows set in high. Large double doors lead to a large luxury dining kitchen with oak units, washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher, microwave, electric oven with gas hob, and steam oven. All of downstairs has tiled floors and all of upstairs has beautiful oak flooring.

There is high speed wireless internet access and a printer.

The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, the double and the twin room have their bathrooms next to the bedrooms. The double guest room has a settee (as well as a double bed) which can make into a double futon. The master bedroom has a chair (as well as a king bed) which can be made into a single futon.

Directly from the property you can enjoy walks, treks and cycling along the quiet country lanes and to the nearby harbours on the picturesque coast. There is a patio round two sides of the house so you can move the furniture to catch the sun!

Come to Garafin and experience the special energy of the land and air and enjoy the beauty of the everchanging light and sky. This is a place to nourish yourself.
