Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is set iust outside the village of Kiltullagh in a rural part of County Galway in the West of Ireland which has a shop, Catholic church (renowned for its paintings) and a thatched pub. It is 5 miles (8 km) from the ancient market town of Athenry (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athenry ), 5 miles from the beautiful lake town of Loughrea (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loughrea) and a 25 minute drive from the centre of Galway city (see http://www.lonelyplanet.com/ireland/county-galway/galway-city ).

As an alternative to driving, we have bikes of various sizes that you can use to explore the area. In Athenry there is a train service to Galway City, Dublin and Limerick.

Our neighbours (part of our extended family) are very friendly & helpful and would be able to help you if you have any questions. They may also be available for babysitting duties if you are interested.

The Galway area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. Galway is a university town with a population of about 75,000 and a well-deserved reputation for its cultural activities, particularly theatre and traditional Irish music. During the summer months, there is almost always some festival in progress. The town has wonderful art galleries, bookshops, craft shops and traditional knitwear shops.

We have access within minutes to the M6 motorway which allows easy and fast access to

• Galway City 25 mins and beyond: Connemara, Aran Islands.
• Dublin 1.5 hours to the East
• The Burren: 1 hour south-west a unique limestone area in Clare, south of Galway, famous for its rare flora
• Cliffs of Moher: 1 hour drive
• The Wild Atlanic Way – on our door step.

Additional information
If interested we would be willing to exchange cars. A car is essential for living in rural Ireland.

We also have a Golden Retriever, Sammy, who would will be looked after by our negihbours and will hang out in the garden during the day. He is child friendly and loves company.
