We just returned from a two week stay at this lovely house in Oranmore. It was such a great location....close to Galway, but a peaceful country setting. There is a water view out the front, and beyond the large backyard are rolling pastures with mountains on the horizon. The house is spacious and immaculately clean, with plenty of room for 6 adults to be comfortable. There was nothing we lacked for amenities. The caretaker, Margaret, was a pleasure to meet and work with when we had questions.
Oranmore is a very short drive for groceries, restaurants, pubs, but don't miss the local store just a minute from the house, Grealy's shop. Wonderful baked products each morning, a small deli, some prepared foods, and general convenience items. You NEED to try the scones!
The area is lovely to walk, and there is a great park nearby. A car is necessary as there are not many shops/restaurants or public transportation within walking distance. Galway is a quick 15...
