Located just a two minute stroll from the seaside village of Spiddal in Galway this 4 bedroom semi-detached home is perfect for your family summer break. There are four double bedrooms, one of which is ensuite and the main family bathroom is upstairs. There is also a guest toilet downstairs.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay and the utility is home to the washing machine and dryer. There is a dining table but it only really seats up to 6 people so wouldn't be ideal for groups or families with more than 6 if you planned sitting down together at the same time.
The sitting room has a TV, comfy sofas and a welcoming open fire should the evenings get a bit chilly!
There is a small garden to the rear with some garden furniture so you can sit outside and enjoy the long summer evenings.
Located on the shores of Galway Bay and just 18 km west of Galway city, Spiddal (An Spidéal) is on the eastern side of the county's Gaeltacht and of the Connemara region. It is home to it’s own beach, Spiddal Beach or Trá an Spidéil which looks across Galway Bay to the Burren region, the Cliffs of Moher and over to the Aran Islands. Spiddal is in the heart of the Galway Gaeltacht (Irish speaking area). The locals speak both Irish and English here but all signposts in the village are in Irish. With the rugged beauty of Connemara only a stone’s throw away, Spiddal is an ideal base for your holiday in Galway. You have a good choice of eateries in the village and a selection of pubs where most weekends you can catch a “live trad” night.
Spiddal has two south-facing beaches on beautiful Galway Bay connected by a scenic walking / cycling path. One is by the roadside east of the village with a short promenade, while the second is sheltered behind the pier, and is reached by car by means of a narrow road to the west of the village. The rocks behind the pier, and the pier itself, are used for shore angling when the mackerel shoals are in. Galway has six Blue Flag Beaches and “Tra na mBan”, or “Ladies Beach”, in Spiddal is one of them.
