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.

"great little cottage" This lovely cottage enjoys the sun which does not always shine in the Irish summer. extremely nice and discrete landlords who can give all sorts of advice. They have their own cultivated vegetables which they share generously. Behind the cottage you can enjoy a place in the sun - if it shines. The cottage is very well equipped with washing machine and all sorts of nice things. Galway is nearby; Barna itself has a good infra-structure and the cottage is situated in the middle of the wonderful Irish landscape. We would love to return anytime!

"Kate's Cottage Ideal for two or on your own." We had a lovely stay at Kate's Cottage in Barna our first time to stay. Ideal cottage for two good fit out and clean. Location is good for travelling both in Galway & Clare with Barna having ample top class places to eat & drink. Donnellys being overall best value for both. We availed of the wonderful Joe O'Toole for a very valuable transport service while not driving ourselves. Thanks Kate & Carlos enjoy your own holiday.

"Cozy Cottage in a Beautiful Location" I was in need of somewhere to live in a hurry and happened upon this cottage. I contacted the owners who were accommodating and were very friendly. The Cottage had everything I needed and the wood burning stove heated up the space very quickly. The location is beautiful and peaceful. All in all I was delighted to find this Cottage and thanks to the owners for being so helpful.

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.
