CO. GALWAY: The Cottage is on the doorstep of the acclaimed 'Conemara' region. This area of west Galway extends out to the islands, and is known for its stone-walled fields, thatched cottages, boglands, unspoiled beaches and native Irish speakers. Take the sea-shore route through Spiddal, Inveran, and on out to Ros-a-Mhil to catch the ferry to the Aran Islands, or travel the 'lakes' route through Oughterard (famous for salmon fishing & castle), Maam Cross and past the Twelve Pins Mountains to the busy market town of Clifden and on to the Conemara National Park & Renvyle or even to Inishbofin Island.There are many golf courses nearby (only a short walk from the cottage to the Barna Golf Course). For day-trips you could consider: the Burren National Park, The Cliffs of Moher, Aillwee Caves, Coole Park, Thoor Ballylee (home of W.B. Yeats, one of our great poets). Visitors to the area can enjoy fishing, wonderful scenic and historic walks and sea sports.

The fully equipped chalet was perfect for my needs, being clean, cosy and comfortable at the end of a long day's hiking etc. The bathroom was a bit small but still worked well. Great kitchen facilities. The owners would go out of their way to make sure everything was just right. Located in a rural setting, just one mile up the hill from Barna pier, beach and village, it is also only a short drive / bus ride into Galway City or out into the wilds of Connemara. Buses for the ferries to the Aran Islands also pick up in the village. Plus points are that the chalet is quiet and peaceful. Negative points? Hard to think of any!

The cottage was very clean and modern. It had a fridge, washing machine, kettle, toaster, microwave, bed linen, towels, tea towels, hair dryer, electric cooker, plates, utensils, wardrobe, TV, Wifi, etc – everything we needed really. The Cottage is in a quiet and peaceful place. It is about 1.5 Km from Barna Village where you find nearby beaches, various shops and Restaurants, a Supermarket and a lovely Hotel (The Twelve). We stayed for a week in this cottage in July 2012. We all had a fabulous time. The hosts were brilliant and really genuine people, friendly, warm and very helpful anytime with the local guide and some local advice on where to go and what to do. On arrival, they make you feel at home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a lovely peaceful holiday, away from the bustle of the city centre.

The owners gave us a warm welcome after a very long drive from Kent, and it was lovely to find a very well equipped and comfortable cottage with beds made up and clean towels available. For urbanites like us who had never been to Ireland before, the peace of the surrounding countryside (with cows for neighbours!) was a real treat, and the owners are on hand, but never obtrusive, if there are any queries. The only downsides were elements out of their control, such as the unpredictable weather and the variable internet access. You do need a car - that mile up from the village is a long one! I recommend a day trip to Inish Mor (but check the weather forecast!) This was a highlight for us.

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. It was very comfortable - had everything you might need, all cooking facilities, electric shower, tv, wifi. It was spotlessly clean. We actually had our son with us and the owner supplied a camp bed for him. It is about a mile from Barna - we found it was easy to walk down to the town for dinner/drinks and get a taxi back. Barna is a beautiful spot, fab restaurants and close to Salthill, Spiddal and Galway city. Lots of lovely beaches, such a relaxing destination. I would certainly stay in the cottage again.
