Welcome to Auntie Katie's Cottage!
This fine traditional Cottage once was home to our Auntie Katie and is situated in an idyllic location on the sea front of the picturesque seaside village of Ballyvaughan. It overlooks Galway bay to the front with the stunning Cappanwalla Mountain to the rear. A short walk along the sea front brings you to all the shops, restaurants and pubs in the village.
This is an ideal location, as a touring base, for exploring the magnificent Burren landscape or visiting the many famous tourist attractions in the area such as the Cliffs of Moher, Aillwee Caves, Doolin and the Aran Islands.
Ballyvaughan is also growing in popularity as the focal point for such renowned walking tours as the 'Burren Way'. Other guided walking tours through the Burren region, to suit all tastes, are also available. [more about the location and the activities...]
The cottage itself consists of two bedrooms on the ground floor, 1 double, 1 twin and a loft room upstairs which contains two single beds and is ideal for families or for couples. There's one bathroom with shower over tub. [more...]
The living area, the traditional "kitchen" is full of character and old world charm with a flag floor and open fire place with hobs. It doesn't take much to imagine Katie still sitting there enjoying the open turf fire and a cup of tea!
All rooms in the cottage still feature traditional Irish farmhouse antiques and original pictures on the walls.[more about living in the Holiday Cottage...
A separate kitchen and dining area off the living area is well serviced with all modern conveniences including washing machine and microwave.[more about cooking and eating in the cottage...]
All in all is a cosy and comfortable corner to relax and enjoy the unique landscape that the area has to offer. The property is enclosed and fairly safe for children. There's a garden table with chairs inviting to sit in the afternoons and watch the sunset setting in on Galway Bay!
The cottage is available to rent all year long. Early booking for the summer season is highly recommended! For prices, booking & contact information please look here.
