A Family Friendly Property

Adults-only holiday home in Ardrahan
Our self-catering cottages are situated adjacent to a peaceful wooded area and a restored historical structure and grounds. A visit to this site provides a memorable window on local history. The surrounding landscape provides stunning views of the Burren Hills (to the West) and Slieve Aughty Mountains (to the East).

On site is a children's play area, with swings, slides and hen run & wildflower meadow. Plans are for a clay oven to be built for Pizza making in the garden for 2014. One of the key features of the location is that visitors will genuinely feel that nature is a short walk away. The historic village of Ardrahan is conveniently located on the N18 between Galway City and Airport (20 minutes drive) and Shannon Airport (40 minutes drive). The coastal town of Kinvara is only a 10 minute drive away, and is famous for its traditional music all year round and its excellent choice of restaurants and pubs. The town plays host to the annual Cuckoo Fleadh music festival, and the Crinniu na mBád, during which you will see the famous Galway sailboats 'Hookers' gather in the bay in one of the biggest festivals in the West of Ireland.

Our self-catering accomodation provides an ideal base for day trips to the Aillwee Caves (30 kilometers), Bunratty Folk Park(30 Kilometers), Thor Ballylee ( 5 Kilometers), the Cliffs of Moher (40 Kilometers), Connemara, Galway City (18 Kilometers), and Ennis( 18 Kilometers).
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Smart televisions are featured in guestrooms.

Kitchens offer fridges, stovetops, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer.

8/10 Good

Convenient for touring
the property was pleasant and host was helpful. Better set up for 4 than for 6 but acceptable. The shower set up could be better, one was not usable and the other was open to the bathroom so the water was all over the floor. With 6 of us having 2 working showers would be better.
