Kinvara Village Holiday Cottage - with HOT TUB included! Cosy and modern and located right in the harbour village of Kinvara, Galway Bay. Stroll to the shops, pubs, restaurants & watch the traditional boats set sail from the pier. Enjoy views of the world-famous Burren hills. Large TV/DVD. Cosy open fire.

The perfect base for exploring Kinvara, the Burren and counties Galway & Clare. Enjoy Kinvara with its lively traditional music scene, noted seafood restaurants, sailing, and festivals. 2 minute walk to shops, pubs, cafés, hotel, sea, tennis courts. A few minutes drive brings you to Trácht beach with its golden sands and the 'flaggy shores' of New Quay. 25 minutes to the bustling city of Galway.


The living area looks right out at tall broad-leafed trees which line the laneway. You can hear the birdsong, while relaxing in front of the open fire. From the windows here and the bedroom above you can gaze at the Burren Mountains. All the rooms are furnished to high specification, and the beds all have superior quality mattresses (two of them are queen-size). All bedrooms contain wardrobes, bedside lockers and lamps. The kitchen is very well equipped. Bathrooms have instant electric showers. We also provide an array of books (including children's), DVDs, jigsaws and playing cards. Welcome Folder and maps. Travel-cot and highchair available. Also equipment for elderly and disabled.


There is a private, fenced garden at the rear, and a patio area with garden furniture. Let us know if you wish to book our hot-tub, so we can have it set up & ready for you. We provide a BBQ stand and utensils and can purchase disposable charcoal trays on your behalf, to start you off. Also, upon request you may have the use of a shed if you have bicycles, fishing or sports equipment – ask the owner for the key. Ample, private, off-road parking. Public tennis courts and football pitch across the road at the top of the lane

Owner's reply:
Thank you Anne. Overall your review was positive and complimentary, and we have started immediately to put into place some of your recommendations – extra bedside locker & lamp, new matching crockery sets, more cutlery, clothes horse, outside socket, and the instruction manuals in a more accessible place. Just to note: the House Instruction Sheet which I send to guests before arrival, and which is also contained in the Welcome Folder does have instructions on how to turn on the hot water by a red button near the immersion tank, and then a slider switch to ‘Constant on’ which bypasses the timer. This sheet also has a map showing location of the glass recycling bins! And we had a great selection of tourist leaflets at the start of the summer but they seem to have whittled down! Anyway we do appreciate visitors’ feedback as that is how we get an insight into what to improve/add in order to provide top quality accommodation for our guests. (You mentioned about difficulty having a dinner party for 12, but, in fairness Anne, while we can certainly add to the cutlery and crockery, the cottage is set for a maximum capacity of 8 persons, hence 8 around the dining table - but good idea to bring in the garden table. Also the large half-acre site does have a second shed converted to studio which is sometimes in use by 1 person who does our garden maintenance. A tall densely slatted fence divides the 2 properties and gives privacy, and there is a separate driveway for each.)
