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.

WONDERFUL! My husband and I just spent a wonderful week at Kate's Cottage. The cottage is lovely, situated in a beautiful , quiet, and peaceful country setting. It has everything you need for your comfort. The location is a perfect base for touring Galway and the west of Ireland. We hope to be back!

"Serene Country Getaway" My partner and I used this cottage as a base to experience Galway and the surrounding area of Connemara last year, and found it to be the perfect location to fulfill this purpose, especially as it's generously nestled between Galway city, the seaside and the greater West. Kate and Carlos were extremely professional and friendly, kept both the cottage and the gardens in beautiful condition and made us feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage and would highly recommend it as an idyllic holiday home.

This was our second visit to the cottage and once again we were very pleased. Kate and Carlos are very professional and excellent hosts. The cottage is fully equipped and all needs catered for. An ideal area from which to tour or alternatively to relax and chill out away from the hustle bustle of city life but at the same time but a short journey into the city Thoroughly recommend this property to potential clients. We intend to return in 2018

Very comfortable functional house. We really enjoyed our stay in Kate's cottage in barna. Very close to all beaches and water sports in rusheen bay. Nice garden and comfortable beds. Highly recommend Donnellys for seafood. Kate is a very effective communicator and ensured our stay was friendly.

PEACE AND TRANQUILITY. The cottage is nestled amongst rolling green fields and is both peaceful and ideally sited. Close to Bearna but sufficiently located to enjoy that silence of the countryside. Delighted this is a pet friendly cottage and welcome the owners willingness to accommodate our wonderful golden retriever who is well behaved at all times. Well equipped - good welcome pack. Owners close by which is such a plus. Would I go back- indeed I would- in fact- indeed I am going back in August!

Great holiday! The location of the house was perfect visiting Galway, Aran Islands and Connemara region. Free Wi-fi and a modern TV made the visit with my teenage sons great as we could all unwind after a busy day sightseeing. We had a great time. Thanks!

PEACEFUL AND WELL LOCATED.... My family and I had a wonderful stay here. We rented both the cottage and the smaller accommodation and were able to comfortably fit a total of 7 people. Kate really is one of the best. She communicated well with me from the start - super responsive, and was over-the-top in meeting our needs. The property is in a great location. From here we were easily able to visit Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, and more. This was a highlight of our Ireland vacation. Recommended
