Country View Cottage description

Holiday home
A Country View Cottage is a delightful detached cottage situated six miles from the medieval heritage town of Athenry in County Galway and can sleep twelve people in one king-size double bedroom, a ground floor double with en-suite and two family rooms. There is a family bathroom on the ground floor. The rest of the property contains an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with multi-fuel stove. There is an additional sitting area (seats 5) with an open fire, a conservatory, a utility and a games room with pool table, table football, table tennis and mountain bikes. To the outside of the property there is ample off road parking and a front enclosed lawned garden and rear patio with furniture and barbecue. A Country View Cottage is a spacious property ideal for families or groups of friends looking to explore this lovely part of the Emerald Isle.

Athenry is a medieval heritage town in County Galway in the west of Ireland. The town's charter was granted in 1235 and has town walls dating from 1310, of which approximately two thirds still remain. Athenry Castle dates from the 13th century and retains a three storey tower which now houses an exhibition area. The town has an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants and is home to Athenry Golf Club. The city of Galway is just 15 miles away and has a large selection of attractions and is regarded as one of the best tourist destinations in Europe. The coastline and beaches of the west of Ireland are just a short drive away, making Athenry a superb holiday destination for touring this beautiful part of Ireland.

Towering cliffs stand next to vast stretches of golden sand, whilst vast mountain ranges cradle cool, low-lying lakes. The Galway region epitomises the term 'great outdoors'; with fantastic walking and cycling and exhilarating water sports

we were a party of 7 adults and 5 kids & stayed here start of july 2020. we had a great week even though the weather was awful! .... the house is huge and there was plenty of room for everyone, the place was spotless and the beds were very comfortable, it provides all the comforts of home and the owner is on hand at all times if we needed him, beautiful outdoor seating area and garden for the kids to run around, would definitely recommend!

We have absolutely loved John’s house! !! We were a group of 3 couples with 5 kids staying over the weekend. The house is extremely spacious, yet very warm and cosy, and has everything we could have wished for and more. Apart from having all of the standard amenities and utilities (that are not actually always a standard in other houses) having the pool table, dart board, tons of kids toys, board games, etc. made our stay much more special than usual. All of the bedrooms and toilets are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. John was very helpful and organised everything to the highest standard. A weekend away at the beginning of December has become our family and friends annual tradition as we celebrate my wife’s birthday by going away together. 2018 marks the best one to date thanks to John’s house!

This was a great house perfect size for the party of people we had .. The games room went down a treat with plenty to keep everyone going . The owner was very helpful and provided all we needed . Couldn’t recommend the house enough the only thing that I would say was the drive in and out To Galway city everyday took longer than expected so if I was to stay again it would be a lot closer to the city . For anyone looking a quieter holiday to relax and enjoy the lovely views this house is perfect .

House is bigger than we expected.. The owner John is the nicest guy you could ever meet. He is the most friendly and accommodating owner. Nothing was ever a problem, he would move mountains to make sure you had everything you need and a relaxing holiday. The house has everything you would expect in a rental and more, he has thought of everything. I would happily and highly recommend this property to anyone. Athenry is lovely, warm friendly locals and some nice restaurants also.

A wonderful house in a perfect situation to explore the West of Ireland.. ...we would definitely book again. The photos don’t do the property justice for the amount of space available. The host was always available by text for any questions. The honesty box for food and drink supplies was a lovely touch as were the children’s toys supplied. All in all a great family holiday.

Superb, just had minor issues with the tv set up (but the owner was fixing it very quickly) and the blinds in the rooms were not good at keeping out the light (we were travelling with 2 young kids and needed their rooms to be dark so they would sleep).. Other than those very minor things everything was wonderful.

Mrs Morrow

The house was just beautiful.. As a family holiday it was the perfect setting. Very close to galway city. There was sheep and lambs in the field behind. The kids thought they were in a farm. Swing set and slide with big gardens made the kids holiday. Would definately go back. So spacious and clean. Really enjoyed our week.

Our cottage exceeded our expectations.. Everything was really nice and and comfortable The owner John was so nice and even had a cuppa with us one morning and a chat!! John even went out of his way to post my daughter's electric toothbrush back home to us when we forgot to lift it

Absolutely loved our week away at this property. Owner John was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Recommended most of the places we visited whilst there. Very clean and spacious. 2 big family rooms too which was perfect for us. Would certainly recommend.
November 2017
It is a great spacious modern cottage, excellent for big families.. We used it for an orchestra and a number of musicians shared this property. Everyone found room to practice and after rehearsals we enjoyed relaxing in the fitness room over a few games of pool. The host is very kind and helpful and looks after the needs of his guests and after the house. The location is good for people touring the area, it is not a scenic location, just a quiet country location. There are no shops or pubs in walking distance. A car is a necessity, but it is very close to Galway city and Co.Clare. All in all we were extremely happy with our stay there.

Great accommodation for a family.. We really enjoyed the cottage - the games room was a plus. The garden is great and it really is only 10 minutes to Athenry

It was easy to get day trips sorted kids loved the WiFi.. The BBQ was great and to top it of there was a jazzui bath
Mrs Callaghan
July 2017
As a family of 2 adults and 6 kids we try and rent a house for a week every year in different locations for family holiday.. This year we thoroughly enjoyed our home in Athenry. Everything that we needed was within the house. We had power cut which affected the TV and problem with trip switch on tumble dryer, I texted the owner and both were fixed immediately. The house had stair gates and everything needed to make our holiday memorable. The house was located near to Athenry and Galway and we had some lovely days out in neighbouring villages and townlands. We couldn't fault Sykes Cottages, the house we rented, the location or the owner of the house who was just a quick text away at all times. A wonderful trip.

Very enjoyable holiday, would definitely go back.. Absolutely everything provided in the cottage....down to toys available for our 3yr old grandson. Very spacious inside and safe, secure gardens for children to play in. Can't think of anything the cottage required to make our stay any more enjoyable....highly recommended!

The house was outfitted to a great standard and my interactions with the owner were brilliant. The location is fantastic with amazing views and good access to local towns Athenry and Oranmore, with Galway being just a little bit further.
Mr Evans

This is a lovely spacious house with comfortable furnishings and lovely views. The owner was welcoming and very helpful indeed. It is an excellent base for exploring County Galway by car. Our family had a truly memorable holiday at Countryside View.
