The County Galway/County Clare region
This cottage is in an ideal location to suit all tastes from quiet country walks, to beautiful scenic drives, follow cultural and heritage trails, enjoy city touring and nightlife, great restaurants and pubs with lively entertainment, come for one of the many festivals, or just relax on the patio or by a cosy log fire.
Galway (City of the Tribes), in the west of Ireland, is one of those wonderful places that everyone wants to visit and if you live there you never want to leave. Galway city has a rich cultural and historical heritage. The city has grown with the economic boom in Ireland, but has retained all of its small town charm and beauty. Take a walk through its busy narrow streets and admire its medieval buildings tastefully mingled with modern structures, visit Galway Cathedral, the Spanish Arch, Lynch’s Castle, the Salmon Weir bridge, or wander through the cobbled streets of the Quays area and the Claddagh, enjoy shopping for – art, books, clothes, handcrafts to suit all budgets and tastes, or just stop for a coffee or a drink in its many cafes, restaurants and bars and soak up the atmosphere. To add to the magic of your holiday, plan your visit to coincide with one of its many festivals – Arts week, Galway races, Salthill Airshow, or the Oyster festival.
Galway is ideally located for touring the surrounding country. Travel west into Connemara "a savage beauty"(Oscar Wilde). This unspoilt terrain is spectacular as you travel west through wide open bogland, serene still lakes with the ever changing light casting hues over the landscape as you are beckoned west by the majestic Twelve Bens. Visit Clifden, the Connemara Capital, and enjoy lunch at Mitchell’s, shop for your designer clothes at Design Platform or just relax at one of the many local beaches. Don’t miss a drive along the Sky Road with spectacular views over the Atlantic. From Clifden you can drive north to visit Kylemore Abbey and Connemara National Park or South to visit Ballyconneelly, Roundstone and then continue east to Ballinahinch Castle returning to Galway by an alternate route.
A few miles south of Galway, visit the Burren area. Start your tour in the beautiful seaside town of Kinvara with a visit to Dunguaire Castle and continue your drive through the unique landscape of the Burren. The Burren is a limestone plateau and has been inhabited since the Stone Age. All about you there are remnants of the various peoples - massive dolmens, wedge tombs and stone forts called cahers, castles, churches and of course modern homes. The Burren has unique flora and fauna – limestone loving plants like foxglove and rock roses, and also plants found in the Arctic, Alpine and Mediterranean regions – a phenomena unexplained by botanist. It hosts 26 of Ireland’s 33 species of Butterfly. You may also encounter herds of Wild Goat. Don’t miss the Black head drive with fantastic views of the Atlantic, a visit to Cliffs of Moher, Aillwee Caves, at least one Celtic Cross, and do visit the village of Doolin renowned for traditional Irish music. Bring a good map as the narrow winding county roads can seem like a maze to the unprepared traveler, and don’t rely on signposts as they might not exist or could point in the wrong direction.
Good link for local news and festivals www.galway.net
Traveling north east from Galway you can find the quiet, low lying landscape criss-crossed with stone walls from whence Galway get its name ‘The Stone Wall County’. Visit the medieval walled town of Athenry, where large segments of the 12th Century wall still stand, tour the Castle and Heritage Centre, visit the pre-Christian Turoe Stone and if you have children, spend a wonderful afternoon at the Turoe Pet Farm and Leisure Centre, Visit Clonfert Cathedral, Dartfield Horse Museum, Portumna Castle and Forest Park, Loughrea with its grey lake, and if your visit is in October don’t miss the Ballinasloe Horse Fair – the longest running fair in Europe where Napoleon supposedly bought his horses.
I have left the best treat to last. Visit the Aran Islands. You can get there by one hour boat trip from Rossaveal, or 10 minute flight from Inverin. Words cannot describe the Islands. The Irish Language is still spoken there and you will get a very special glimpse of Irish language, culture and heritage. Island life is impossible to describe, and never forgotten. You must visit to experience it.
Maree is just three miles from Oranmore and eight miles from Galway city. Maree is a quiet seaside village renowned for its many species of migratory birds, and also its seal colony. You can enjoy lovely country walks, stroll on the pebbled shores of the Atlantic or just sit and read on the cottage patio. There are several golf clubs within easy distance of the cottage and guest golfers are very welcome. The villages of Oranmore and Clarenbridge are just three miles away. In Oranmore enjoy traditional Irish Music and Dancing at Keane's or Tig Gearoid, visit McDonagh's thatched pub which is a protected buiding. There is also a good selection of restaurants. Clarenbridge is renowned for its September Oyster Festival. It is a picturesque village on the Clarin river. The schoolhouse restaurant, and Paddy Burke's are both well worth a visit. You can also pick up some authentic Irish antiques in Clarenbridge. Venture a little further south (on the N18) to Kilcolgan and follow the signs for Moran's of Weir - a thatched pub dating back to the late 1700's - the food here is superb. I particularly recommend lunch. A little further south on the N18 you can visit Thoor Ballylee- summer home of the Nobel Literature Prize winner W.B Yeats,, and also Coole Park, home of Lady Gregory a founder member of our National Theatre and key figure in the Celtic Cultural revival of the early 20th Century.

"An ideal location for traveling the Galway area"
Lally's Corner is a charming thatched cottage with access to all areas from the cliffs of Moor to the Aran Islands. The cottage is near to basic shopping, cozy restaurants and pub. A car is essential for getting around and a GPS will help after a day of exploring the narrow country byways.
