Paddy Staffs Cottage Beach Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
This cottage is a large property just two miles from the lovely coastal village of Spiddal in County Galway. The cottage was built in 1952 and though it has been thoroughly modernised throughout, it still retains many of its original features such as the open fire in the comfortable sitting room. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and the dining room boasts spectacular view across Galway Bay. The four bedrooms are roomy and pleasantly decorated with a tranquil ambience, and two of the bedrooms have their own hand basins, whilst a bathroom completes the living accommodation. Outside the garden enjoys lovely views and there is a lawned area apatio and a barbecue. This is a lovely property for a holiday base in this beautiful part of Ireland.

Area
Overlooking the Galway Bay and Aran Islands, the delightful village of Spiddal is a popular tourist destination and offers visitors plenty of attractions. There are numerous eateries and public houses, two beautiful beaches and a fabulous coastal golf course. The nearby wood of Shannagarram is a special area of conservation and provides excellent walking opportunities. Sea fishing is available off the pier and the blue flag beach of Tra na mBan is a haven for families. Galway is only 12 miles away to the West and Ireland's rich and colourful heritage can be discovered there. There are ferries to the lovely Aran Islands or alternatively boats can be chartered to any of the three islands. With such a wealth of activities and attractions, this is a fabulous holiday destination at any time of year.

Region
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.

The cottage is set in a quiet location with a couple of pubs nearby, which were not open due to CV19.. There is a lovely beach at the bottom of the road that was clean and quiet. We had a few conversations with Bridie, the cleaner, who gave us plenty of information about the running of the cottage. The facilities are good and the house was lovely and clean. Would definitely book this again in the future.

This was our second visit to Paddy Staff's Cottage - it's in a beautiful location and comfortably holds 6 adults.. Bridie Folan, the housekeeper, is wonderful and very welcoming. I somehow managed to fuse the house and she was there within minutes of our phoning for help. The only downsides of this year's visit were that the pillows in one of the bedrooms smelled a bit musty - I swapped them with spares from another room and it was fine. Also, the washing machine may have had something unpleasant stuck in it - clothes came out smelling disgusting. Once I put a boil wash through, the problem was solved. Drying clothes was a bit difficult, as we could not find any washing line, only a small clothes horse. We would love to return to this house again. Situation, facilities and the wonderful welcome from Bridie all make for a fantastic, relaxing time.

The first two numbers I called to enquire about collecting the keys were out of date - the woman I spoke to was very unimpressed that I had her number.. When my son and I got to the cottage, Brídie Folan could not have been nicer or friendlier - she had the place spotless and was very helpful in showing us around and recommending places to visit, etc. We had a lovely time in Paddy Staffs Cottage (despite the almost constant rain!), and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in Connemara.
