Tigh Darby description

Holiday home
Tigh Darby is a charming, detached cottage just one mile from the seaside village of Spiddal in County Galway and can sleep six people. The cottage has three double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a ground floor bathroom, a shower room with shower and basin, a separate basin and WC, a kitchen, an external utility, a dining room with an oil fired stove and seating area (seats 2) and a sitting room with a gas fire. Outside there is off road parking for four cars and a lawned garden to the front with patio and furniture. Tigh Darby is a wonderful base for your holiday in Ireland.

The small seaside village of Spiddal, on the Irish Coast, overlooks Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. With numerous restaurants and pubs, two beaches and a lovely coastal golf course it has something to suit all tastes. Only 12 miles to the east lies Galway City, where you can discover some of Ireland's long and varied history; visit Lynch's Castle, or trace the origin of the famous Claddagh Ring, which originated in a village near the shore of Galway Bay. A lovely coastal village, not to be missed.

A wonderful location, so close to everything and yet such peace and quiet. A perfect place to relax! The owners were genuinely lovely people and extremely welcoming.

This was a very warm and comfortable cottage which was full of character with very good facilities (especially the wifi). It is an excellent location, close to lovely beaches and a short drive from Salt Hill and Galway. There is plenty of parking with a safe, gated garden for children to run around in. It is a very spacious house which accommodated two grandparents, two parents, 3 year old twins and a baby comfortably. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. We definitely hope to return.

We thought the owners of Tigh Darby were both helpful and friendly. The house feels more like a home than a holiday accommodation. I would recommend it to both families and large groups.

First of all, the owners are a very warm and friendly couple whom we had the pleasure of meeting on our visit. The property is a two-storey 4 bedroom property with two fire places. The TV room was especially cosy with a nice sofa set and a warm fireplace which my wife and I enjoyed especially. The added bonus is that this property has WiFi access throughout the house. We certainly recommend others to stay in this property and my wife and I would certainly return to stay here again when we next visit Galway.

The property was delightful, very well appointed, clean and welcoming for guests. The location is excellent! The home is very comfortable and has additional conveniences that may not be found at a typical rental home. For example, the WiFi is quite robust. With two teenagers streaming video and two parents working on email the WiFi connection handled the load without complaint. We also found that we greatly appreciated having a dryer available for our clothes. We spent our holiday hiking and inasmuch had considerable laundry to wash and dry. Additionally, the kitchen is very well appointed and the dishwasher was also appreciated. Our hosts were very kind but not intrusive. We would highly recommend this home as a wonderful holiday home.

The house was a great base for our travels around Galway bay. Had a view of the sea, which was only a short walk, as was the small town of Spiddal.

Our hosts were so kind and helpful, that we immediately felt welcome. We really felt home at Tigh Darby. The house is extremely comfortable and located in a most beautiful setting, close to the ocean. A most enjoyable holiday.

This is a beautiful house, very comfortable, very clean and in a great location. The owner did all they could to make sure we had everything we needed. There were lovely views from all bedrooms. The beds are especially comfy! The power shower upstairs is amazing. It is in a superb location.
