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.
This bright and airy two bedroom cottage is located in Cnoc Suain Conamara. Connemara hill is a charming village with many excellent restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarkets, health food stores and pharmacies as well as wonderful scenic walks. Surrounded by West Connemara, Galway city, Burren and the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands, this is the ideal location for touring Spiddal. This delightful two bedroom cottage sleeps three people and has a living room, fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, free parking, indoor fireplace, dryer and all other essentials.
