airbnb Spiddal
| 4 min read

Spiddal is a picturesque seaside village on the shores of Galway Bay. Spiddal is probably best known for Colaiste Chonnacht to which students come from all over the world to learn the Irish language, culture and traditions. With the rugged beauty of Connemara only a stone’s throw away, Spiddal is an ideal base for your holiday in Galway. You have a good choice of eateries in the village and a selection of pubs where most weekends you can catch a “live trad” night. Whether it’s the culture and notorious nightlife of the city itself, the hills of Connemara, or going rural and rustic with the memorable throwback lifestyle of the Aran Islands, Spiddal has more to explore than most visitors can ever hope to uncover.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities.
