Property description

Only 20 minutes from Galway City, Weir Haven is a picturesque thatched country house set on 2 acres of beautifully landscaped cottage gardens. The calm and beautiful interiors are furnished with top class furnishings, selected antiques, designer fabrics and objects d’art.

This truly is a perfect base from which to explore the world-renowned Cliffs of Moher, the picturesque village of Kinvara, Aillwee Caves, the Burren and the Burren Perfumery, the Aran Islands, beautiful Westport, Connemara National Park, Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, Coole Park and Thoor Ballylee - home of WB Yeats.

It is also only five minutes from Moran's Oyster Bar, one of the most famous lobster and oyster bars in Ireland.

Weir Haven provides 5-star luxury, self-catering accommodation for up to eight people. The house comprises extra spacious drawing room (30x15ft), large dining room (25x15ft), bright, spacious sun-room (30x15ft) with double-height windows. Kathleen, the owner, loves to cook and entertain and previously ran it as a very successful luxury bed and breakfast so you will find an exceptionally well equipped kitchen (20X15 ft) with handcrafted units, granite worktops, 4 oven Aga cooker, a large island unit suitable for casual dining and a well stocked pantry. Upstairs there are four luxurious, extra-spacious bedrooms which are individually styled each with private en-suite bathroom, king-size bed, settee, easy chairs and flat-screen TV. Stunning river and garden views from all rooms and Italian Marble flooring throughout the ground floor.

There are several terraces for al-fresco dining and relaxing outdoors offering views of the Weir Estuary, Kilcolgan Castle and Moran's Oyster Cottage.

A Welcome Pack of fresh fruit, fresh orange juice, home-baked bread, milk and other essentials is provided for guests on arrival. Daily housekeeping is also included.

Weir Haven is built on land steeped in history at Tyrone Avenue. The area formed part of St. George’s Estate dating back to the 17th century and the ruins of Tyrone House - a neo-classical cut stone mansion - is only 1 mile away, as is St. Sourney’s Church and Well - a religious site dating from the 6th century.
