For Galway, it's the perfect location. The city and Connemara at your doorstep area are easily accessible. We found everything we wanted within a short drive of the cottage. The local town has remarkable amenities for its size (several truly excellent restaurants, a convenient grocery and off-licence). The cottage itself has all the comforts of home: a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed and a lovey deck in a setting of complete peace and quiet. Truly a lovely thing to come back to after a day of touring. It was a pleasant and restful stay that I’d highly recommend. Kate and Carlos could not have been better hosts: pleasant to chat with, always available but never intrusive.
We stayed in this chalet for one week from July 8. We brought our little dog and Kate and Carlos were so helpful even leaving us bedding for our pet. Carlos even left us a DVD player as we were not out much in nighttime and wanted to catch up on House of Cards! The chalet is very well equipped with everything you would need. It is very cosy and comfortable. What a great location for touring.kylemore abbey 30mins galway city 15mins Spiddal 10mins.we had several meals in The 12 and O Gradys on the Pier.Highly recommended.Pizza in 12 is excellent.

We had a lovely stay at Kate's Cottage in Barna our first time to stay. Ideal cottage for two good fit out and clean. Location is good for travelling both in Galway & Clare with Barna having ample top class places to eat & drink. Donnellys being overall best value for both. We availed of the wonderful Joe O'Toole for a very valuable transport service while not driving ourselves. Thanks Kate & Carlos enjoy your own holiday.
I was in need of somewhere to live in a hurry and happened upon this cottage. I contacted the owners who were accommodating and were very friendly. The Cottage had everything I needed and the wood burning stove heated up the space very quickly. The location is beautiful and peaceful.
All in all I was delighted to find this Cottage and thanks to the owners for being so helpful.

This lovely cottage enjoys the sun which does not always shine in the Irish summer. This is why the cottage is a little damp, but one can overcome the dampness by using an electric heater or the small fire place. Then you can enjoy everything at Kate's and Carlos' that you need for a successful holiday for two: extremely nice and discrete landlords who can give all sorts of advice. They have their own cultivated vegetables which they share generously. Behind the cottage you can enjoy a place in the sun - if it shines. The cottage is very well equipped with washing machine and all sorts of nice things. Galway is nearby; Barna itself has a good infra-structure and the cottage is situated in the middle of the wonderful Irish landscape. We would love to return anytime!
