Loved the location. Surrounded by water, cows, beauty. Very comfortable home. Great views from every window, especially "the whiskey room." Check out was a bit early - but it worked out for us. Nearby villages are nice - good restaurants and a grocery store. Lots of paths to walk/hike from the house. 3 bathrooms was key for our group of 6 people. Very relaxing. A highlight of our trip.
Un bout du monde en Irlande
Idéalement situé pour profiter des jeux de lumière irlandaise , du silence .. du vol des oiseaux et de la douce musique du vent ... peu importe les fréquentes averses car elles subliment les couleurs . Randonnées campagne et mer autour de la maison avant d’aller découvrir d’autres comtés comme le Connemara à proximité. Des hôtes chaleureux qui nous invitent dans une maison à ciel ouvert . Nous reviendrons . Ce fut parfait . Merci .
Helen and Gerry were great hosts! This is a very spacious home and sparking clean! The views of the country side and bay were amazing. So quiet and peaceful.
peaceful residence in the nature
excellent residence as you are looking for a way to step out of the stress in the middle of nowhere. You can plan excursions, as you are well informed by the owners. Very nice and practical kitchen. Just wifi could be better.
Great Cottage for Exploring the West of Ireland
The Heron Cottage is a fantastic place to stay for exploring the west of Ireland. We had 5 adults & 2 kids stay in the main cottage, with the 2 kids sharing a double bed & 1 adult in a single bed, which worked for us but if you have that big of a group I’d consider booking out the attached 1 bedroom unit as well.
The location is ideal for day shots into Galway, the Aran Islands & the Cliffs of Moher.
Linnanes is a great spot for food and they’ll do take away orders do you can enjoy back at the cottage.
Gerry & Helen are great and we had no issue with the check-in or check-out process.
We will be coming back to the Heron Cottage for our next trek back to the Burren.
Hi David .
Thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Heron Cottage. We very much enjoyed having you and your extended family to stay. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we look forward to accommodating you sometime in the future.
Gerry and Helen.
Superb cottage in the Burren
We recently spent a marvelous week in Heron cottage with another couple. The cottage is well situated on a small peninsula in Galway Bay. The friendly owners met us upon arrival and showed us the cottage and gave valuable tips about what was available in the region. The cottage is very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and bedrooms. There is a large fireplace in the living room for those chilly nights. The view over the water is lovely with fantastic sunsets. And, yes, there were herons and other birds. Locally, there is an incongruous ice cream parlor, a nice gallery/café and one of the famous Martello towers to explore. Also, there is a very nice paved walking/cycling path along “The Flaggy Shore” nearby.
We had four good dinners at nearby restaurants in Ballyvaughan and Kinvara, including the famous Moran’s on the Weir. The cottage is well positioned for exploring the local sites by car. To the south are the Burren, megalithic sites, the Cliffs of Moher and the small towns of Doolin and Ennis. Ferries from Doolin can take you to the nearby Aran Islands. To the north are Dunguaire castle, Galway and the wilds of Connemara.
All in all I think you would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay in this region. We left with many great memories and will always remember the delightful owners. By the way, if you encounter the owner’s dog, Clara, she will be your friend for life if you rub her tummy!
