The Gallery is a perfect retreat. Had relaxed, friendly hosts who were ready and willing to help but in no way obtrusive. Really can't fault it in any way.

The Gallery was a well cared-for property with very hospitable and helpful owners. It was an ideal base for us both to explore a very interesting area and the property itself was very clean and comfortable.

This was a very cosy little house, and the owners are very kind. The cottage is ideally situated in the middle of all the beautiful places to visit.

Our Hosts were very gracious and welcoming. The Gallery was a lovely cottage and in a perfect location to see all of the things we wanted to see. We would highly recommend The Gallery as a lovely Irish Cottage!

We very much enjoyed staying in a house that is looked after so well. Even in January it was cosy and warm, the bedroom had electric blankets! The owners were very friendly and helpful, nothing seemed to be complicated.

Absolutely wonderful. In a great situation for a holiday with a plethora of information provided by our hosts, plus some very helpful comments and directions given to us by our hosts. The Gallery was like a home from home, and relaxing in comfortable surroundings after a day out was made easy by the quality of the property and the furnishings.

Had a great break at The Gallery in November. The house is very well situated for visiting parts of Galway Clare. There are lots of good restaurants and bars within a short drive. Overall the property was very comfortable, very good value and we were very well looked after by the owner. We would definitely return.

We would recommend The Gallery to anyone who wants a nice relaxing time in a beautiful part of the world. The quality of the accommodation and furnishings is remarkably good for the price of the property. We will definitely be going there again.

It was really great to know we were coming back at night to what seemed like home.

Owner was friendly and hospitable. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us feel at home. The Gallery was comfortable and had everything we needed. We were in easy reach of many interesting places and particularly enjoyed visiting Kinvar which was just a few minutes car journey away.

The Gallery was fantastic! I loved every minute I was there and would love to return one day. The owners were fabulous hosts and so welcoming. I arrived late and they had a fire going and some nice scones waiting for me. The bedding was amazing and helped me to get some much needed sleep. The wood stove kept it cosy - one rainy day I never even left the cottage. Many thanks for helping to make my vacation so wonderful.

An awesome cottage that provided everything we could hope for. Great location, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to travel to all the lovely places in the Galway region. Highly recommend.

The Gallery Cottage was perfect in every way and we had everything we could possibly need. The owners were so helpful and very welcoming. We couldn't have asked for more and felt very much relaxed and at home. Wonderful local pubs just 5 minutes down the road! Great place and people!

A wonderful property. Not only does it offer everything you could need in a great location, it gives a real feeling of home comfort, so much so that we cooked and ate in most evenings! The owners could not have been more welcoming; they struck a perfect balance between letting you know they were there whenever you needed them, and making you feel as though you could treat the place as your own. There was a wealth of things to do in local towns and villages and so much to explore (thanks a lot to the advice given in The Gallery!) we will most definitely be returning again to The Gallery, and Ballinderreen, and will highly recommend it to friends and family!

We spent a week in this property and wish it had been longer. The owners were available if needed and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was so homely and welcoming, a lovely plate of scones were waiting on our arrival.

A sweet little cottage located in a small quiet town, about 20-30 min drive from Galway. There is room for a car if you have one. The cottage is snug and has a well stocked kitchen if you do plan to do some proper cooking. The cottage is furnished well and feels like a home. A lot of care and effort has been put into the place to make it feel homely, and it does. The bed is comfortable and comes with extra blankets and pillows if needed as well as an electric blanket. Very invaluable if you decide to holiday during a very cold week! A thoughtful plate of scones, jam and butter was left out for as when we arrived at the cottage. There is a selection of DVD's and books upstairs. The owners have also put together a file of suggestions for day trips, restaurants and things to do if you need some help. They have also listed other useful information such as the whereabouts of the nearest post office, church, police station, hospital etc. We had a lovely time there and would definitely return on a second visit to Ireland. It is very well priced, private and feels like your home for the week or however long you have chosen to stay.

We stayed for a week over Easter and it was wonderful. The owners were very friendly and could not do more for us! The cottage has everything you could need and is perfectly positioned for seeing arup the sites around Galway!

We were welcomed with warmth and hospitality by the owners Aisling and Joe who had obviously put this cosy cottage together with great attention to detail. Being near the road caused no problems at all and made touring the area very simple. Kinvara is close by and is a very characterful, pretty village whch can be reached in a few minutes. There are forest walks, dramatic coastal drives and the Burren all within reach. We left the property already planning our next visit . We would recommend the Gallery to anyone wanting a genuine experience of Galway.
March 2014
The Gallery it's self was a perfect cottage for a couple looking for some quality time together. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The cottage caters for everything you could possible need. It was extremely clean, well looked after and presented. The owners aisling & Joe were the most welcoming and warm people who couldn't help you enough. They were very friendly and approachable. We fell in love with the place and the people and will most definitely be back in the future!
September 2013
The cottage is the perfect size for a couple, with an open plan living room/dining area/kitchen upstairs and a double bedroom and shower downstairs. It's well equipped and comfortable with everything you need for your stay.There is a small private sitting out area at the back. The cottage is located next to the owner's house by a main road but we weren't aware of any traffic noise once inside the cottage. There are plenty of places to eat not too far away in Kilcolgan and Kinvarra, and Ballinderreen itself has a couple of pubs and a petrol station/convenience store. It's a good base for touring around and is ideally located for visiting The Burren and Galway City. The beautiful and almost totally unspoilt landscape of Connemara is also within easy reach by car.

The accommodation could not have been better, warm, spotless, well situated and all the comforts of home.

Everything we needed was in The Gallery to make it a wonderful holiday. It is in a great location to travel into the Burren and up to Galway and Connemara. There was a comprehensive information pack with suggestions of where to eat and lots of leaflets to browse through. Had a very relaxed and cosy week and would recommend it as a place to stay.
