The County Galway/County Clare region

The Barna Cottages are on the doorstep of the acclaimed 'Conemara' region. This area of west Galway extends out to the islands, and is known for its stone-walled fields, thatched cottages, boglands, unspoiled beaches and native Irish speakers. Take the sea-shore route through Spiddal, Inveran, and on out to Ros-a-Mhil to catch the ferry to the Aran Islands, or travel the 'lakes' route through Oughterard (famous for salmon fishing & castle), Maam Cross and past the Twelve Pins Mountains to the busy market town of Clifden and on to the Conemara National Park & Renvyle or even to Inishbofin Island.

There are many golf courses nearby (only a short walk from the cottage to the Barna Golf Course). For day-trips you could consider: the Burren National Park, The Cliffs of Moher, Aillwee Caves, Coole Park, Thoor Ballylee (home of W.B. Yeats, one of our great poets). Visitors to the area can enjoy fishing, wonderful scenic and historic walks and sea sports.


BARNA is a quiet, seaside village offering award-winning restaurants (Donnelly's, The Twelve Hotel, O'Grady's at the pier), cafés, hair & beauty salons, health food shop, gift shop, boutiques, bakery and a great supermarket. Visit Silver Strand Beach, Barna Woods, Rusheen Bay Bird Sanctuary, Barna Tennis Courts, Spiddal Craft Village, the Aran Islands, Salthill Promenade and many other superb amenities.

Or pop into the lively city of Galway to hear traditional music, watch street entertainment or attend many of the festivals that are held throughout the year, including the famous Galway Races (end July), Galway Arts festival, Volvo Ocean Race, Powerboat racing at the docks and Salthill, Oyster festivals, Cúirt Literary festival, Medieval Festival, and many more. There are Farmer's Markets in nearby Spiddal (Thursdays) and Moycullen (Fridays) and of course the well-known Galway Market on Saturdays.

"Peaceful, relaxing cosy cottage"

This is our second year renting the cottage in Barna. It is in a peaceful and tranquil setting and meets all the needs of our family. The children can go for walks or to the GAA pitch across the road. They played badmington this year on the front lawn. The numerous books, videos and music provided are a great source of entertainment. Kate and Carlos always make us feel welcome; the gardens are wonderful and we were welcome to try the delicous beetroot and rhubarb. A great escape from citylife and close to Barna for the great food of the 12 Hotel and Donnellys. A short drive into Spidael, Connemara or to Clare. This year we booked tea at Fr Teds in Kilnaboy and Ard Bia at Nimmos in Galway city is a must for food. Can't wait to book next year.

"Peace and tranquility in beautiful seaside village"

Kate and Carlos gave us a warm welcome after a very long drive from Kent, and it was lovely to find a very well equipped and comfortable cottage with beds made up and clean towels available.

For urbanites like us who had never been to Ireland before, the peace of the surrounding countryside (with cows for neighbours!) was a real treat, and Kate and Carlos are on hand, but never obtrusive, if there are any queries. The only downsides were elements out of Kate and Carlos's control, such as the unpredictable weather and the variable internet access. You do need a car - that mile up from the village is a long one!

I recommend a day trip to Inish Mor (but check the weather forecast!) This was a highlight for us.

Many thanks Kate and Carlos!

Thanks for that lovely review, and fair comments. The internet needs to be re-set on occasion, by turning off the power for a few seconds. Must remember to let other guests know that!
