Where is it?
Spiddal is a beautiful little village on the West Coast of Ireland. Gaelic/Irish is mainly spoken. There is a craft centre in the village that displays (& sells) local crafts & arts (www.ceardlann.com). There are a number of pubs and Irish traditional music is almost nightly during the summer. There is a shop at the bottom of our road that sells beautiful Irish clothes and gifts (check out www.standun.com).
The house is perfectly located for exploring Connemara, the Aran islands, Galway, Mayo, Co.Clare and the west of Ireland. Connemara is a wonderful, natural experience, with sea activities, boat trips, mountain walks, horse-riding and island trips available in abundance. Connemara (www.connemaranationalpark.ie).
