Our home

Our home is very comfortable, clean, and spacious. It is very warm and inviting, with all of the modern conveniences that you may require. We have 5 bedrooms, two bathrooms and one ensuite.
It has a large open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room, overlooking the sea. We have a large garden with goalposts for football enthusiasts...We have a solid fuel stove to light in the cool summer evenings . Oil fired central heating throughout. Upstairs we have a home cinema to relax with your favourite movie and a glass of wine.
We have a deck which overlooks Galway Bay, which is a beautiful tranquil place to sit and enjoy the ocean. Our garden has private access to the rocky seashore, and there is an ancient pier used for swimming if you're brave enough to chance the. Old Atlantic temperatures.

Our home really is in the perfect place, close to the beautiful village of Barna, the wonderful city of Galway and yet peacefully situated on the seashore, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds as we do!

Our Children are grown up now, 30,25 and 19, however, It's usually just the two of us traveling. We love to walk, hill walking, archaeological walks, swim and enjoy our garden. We love exchanging to cities around the world and have had 8 fantastic exchanges so far. Occasionally our adult children join us on our travels, however, it will be just the two of us travelling in 2019.
