To the South (Clare and the Burren) and the north(Connemara) of Galway are other spectacular beaches and landscapes. Our street is perfect for children as there's no traffic, you can walk to the village (5 mins) for groceries, visit the library for books, have a meal or go for a drink. There are excellent traditional, Indian and Chinese restaurants nearby; traditional music in Galway City. For something special 'Morans on the Weir' is a 10 min drive south and is renowned for its exquisite seafood in a lovely outdoor setting on the banks of the Clarin river (which feeds into the sea) with a view of Kilcolgan Castle.
