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.

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. It was very comfortable - had everything you might need, all cooking facilities, electric shower, tv, wifi. It was spotlessly clean. We actually had our son wit… More

"Excellent stay at Barna Cottage for Two"
The cottage was very clean and modern. In my opinion the cottage was nice. It had a fridge, washing machine, kettle, toaster, microwave, bed linen, towels, tea towels, hair dryer, electric cooker, plates, utensils, wardrobe, TV, Wifi, etc – everything we needed really.
The Cottage is in a quiet and peaceful place. It is about 1.5 Km from Barna Village where you find nearby beaches, various shops and Restaurants, a Supermarket and a lovely Hotel (The Twelve).
We stayed for a week in this cottage in July 2012. We all had a fabulous time.
The hosts, Annette and Carlos, were brilliant and really genuine people, friendly, warm and very helpful anytime with the local guide and some local advice on where to go and what to do. On arrival, they make you feel at home.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a lovely peaceful holiday, away from the bustle of the city centre.

"Everything you could need."
The fully equipped chalet was perfect for my needs, being clean, cosy and comfortable at the end of a long day's hiking etc. The bathroom was a bit small but still worked well. Great kitchen facilities. The owners would go out of their way to make sure everything was just right. Located in a rural setting, just one mile up the hill from Barna pier, beach and village, it is also only a short drive / bus ride into Galway City or out into the wilds of Connemara. Buses for the ferries to the Aran Islands also pick up in the village. Plus points are that the chalet is quiet and peaceful. Negative points? Hard to think of any!
