Ballyvaughan is a quaint village in the Irish countryside on Galway Bay. We spent a wonderful week at this 5 bedroom 3 bathroom home in June, 2013 where we enjoyed cooking and sleeping in the comfy beds. The home has every modern convenience. The owner's booklet for renters covers details for an easy stay and includes a list of day trips with excellent driving instructions. After a day of touring the nearby sites and attractions, returning to the house or stopping at the friendly nearby pubs, are excellent options for dinner. The helpful neighbor who lives just down the street is available if questions arise during your stay. We highly recommend this family owned Irish retreat.

Lovely Irish Country Home

Our party of nine enjoyed a fantastic week in this comfortable and well located home. Just outside of tiny Ballyvaughan with it's fabulous pubs all within a few blocks, close to the Cliffs of Mohr and the Aran Islands and many paths for walking right from the back door. The kitchen is large and the sunroom so inviting. Watching the cows just beyond the fence and the wild rabbits were a treat. You will love this home and we all would love to return someday.

This is a beautiful, peaceful, comfortable home in an amazing part of West Ireland. I would highly recommend this place for so many reasons! The view is gorgeous, there are trails just down the end of the lane that take you out onto "The Burren". We loved watching the cows each day, moving from pasture to pasture. We took day trips to several places that were recommended by the owner of this home. The owners provided guidebooks, maps, suggested itineraries, and these added to the enjoyment of our visit. The home has everything you will need: comfortable beds, clothes washer and dryer, dishwasher, wonderful areas to "hang out" after a long day of sightseeing. Ballyvaughan is a charming town as well. We went to the farmers market, rented bikes for a day (at the laundromat), visited the Burren Perfumery. I could go on and on. there is so much you could do or you could relax and enjoy the view in this wonderful home.

We spent a terrific week at this house, which exceeded our expectations. Our group included 3 couples and 1 single adult, and we all had privacy and comfort. The house is well-designed, built and maintained, beautifully furnished, and well-equipped with all the modern conveniences. The kitchen-dining room, the living room and the family room are all spacious and afford varied gathering spaces. The house is well-located in a lovely country setting, with enjoyable rural walks as well as to the nearby interesting village of Ballyvaughan. Excursions in several directions are easy and worthwhile. This is a superb choice for a stay in this part of Ireland.
