About Bernadette O'Grady

Seamus and Bernadette, having settled in the beautiful medieval city of Galway, were pleased to find this peaceful site on the seafront within a short distance of their home.

Bernadette, retired Primary school head teacher, adores walking the Flaggy Shore which affords her time to birdwatch the wintering Brent geese, oystercatchers and curlews, while in the midst of farmers engaging in their seasonal work.

Seamus, retired Director of Adult Education at NUI Galway, takes advantage of local fresh fish availability as cooking is his favourite hobby. Of course, the excellent pints served by Vincent in Linnane's Lobster Bar down the road, is greatly appreciated.

Bernadette O'Grady purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Bernadette O'Grady chose County Clare

This property, we feel, is in a perfect location. It was a dream come true for us to find a location which is situated on the edge of a beautiful farming countryside, on the waterfront with beautiful views and with access to wonderful entertainment and activities.

Both Seamus and I come from a rural and farming background and have spent our working lives in our local city of Galway, so it was important to us to find a somewhere we could relax in our spare time.

With the surreal Flaggy Shore only meters to the left, you can become one with nature. While for those more lively folk, Kinvara is renowned for it's music and festivals, and Galway city is only 40 minutes away for the keen historians and shoppers!

What makes this cottage unique

The stunning location at the the edge of the Burren and overlooking Galway Bay is what had us fall in love with this home.

The house is an ideal family base. The spacious garden facilitate BBQs, play or general relaxation. The gallery and upstairs area allow children to have free time away from parents who wish for peace and quiet.

If You Ever Go Across the Sea to Ireland.........

Cuan Beag is a Five Star house overlooking Galway Bay. It is even better than it looks in the pictures. I was there with my sister for two memorable weeks in September. We know the area very well, and now that we have found the perfect place to stay, we can't wait to return. It is a real treasure and the perfect place for a fabulous holiday.

From inside every room in the house, and from the beautifully landscaped gardens, you have superb views of Galway Bay, Aughanish Island and even the lights of Galway City. Every comfort has been provided for the discerning traveller.

I have recommended Cuan Beag very highly to all my friends. Now, I am hoping that it will be available for me when I want to return.

Many, many thanks to Bernadette and Seamus. You are the perfect hosts. I hope to see you before too long.

Beautiful Irish Home - Wheelchair Friendly

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently spent a delightful time at this cottage in the Burren. We were given a warm welcome by Seamus and Bernadette, to their warm and comfortable home on the waterfront of Galway Bay. The scenery was far more spectacular in person than photos could ever convey.
The home, being wheelchair accessible, allowed us freedom to move without hinderence around the house - living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, which is furnished with appropriate handicap equipment.
Likewise, down the road, Linnane's Lobster Bar is wheelchair friendly. We enjoyed the local seafood and amazing Guinness. Customers both local and tourists mix to create an easygoing and amusing atmosphere.
Ballyvaughan, nearby, is on the flat with many interesting tearooms. The promenade there was very peaceful and relaxing. Near to the Aillwee Caves is the Award winning Perfumery with its coffee shop, not to be missed. The Burren Chocolatier which is only a short drive from the home is also a very unique and interesting attraction to see.
The Clare/ Galway region, rich in landscape, culture, literature and music is ideal for exploration and full of intriguing attractions.
We are very much look forward to returning.

Amazing home and people

  • 5 of 5
NOTE: We stayed at this home in March of 2013, but the website wouldn't let me change the date that far back - sorry for the delay in writing this review!

We arrived (after midnight) to a beautiful home with a home-cooked meal waiting for us. The owners were as wonderful as their home. Bernadette and Seamus were gracious and kind hosts, and we were pleased to have Seamus join us at the delicious Lobster Bar (within walking distance!). The locals were kind enough to indulge us in a bar-wide rendition of "Danny Boy" in honor of our visit.

"The Flaggy Shore" by Seamus Heaney is a poem written about a beach near this home. It was here that we spread my father's and brother's ashes, transforming what would have been a somber event into a wonderful memory that my family will cherish forever.

Thank you so much, Bernadette and Seamus, for this great family vacation destination.

Love,
John McCarty and Family

very lovely

  • 5 of 5
We were really happy in the cottage. The lovely house, the beutiful landscape and very nice trips around (short way to connemara national park, cliffs of moher, dolmen, beach, ....). All things you need are there. The little technical fault was soon repaired because of the very nice hirer.

Perfect Irish Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Ireland and stayed in hotels and B&B's. This was the first time we rented a cottage and it was a great idea. This home made for a perfect vacation. We were right on the water and in a secluded area where we could walk through the countryside and watch the sunset on the water. We were also within 10 to 30 minutes of some very good restaurants. We took several day trips to Doolin, Connemara, Galway, Ennis, and Gort. We were able to see and experience all of Western Ireland. We loved it and will definitely come back.

Our warm homely house is located 200m from Linnanes Lobster Bar and 800m from the Russell Gallery. We are a 15 minute drive from the musical and lively town of Kinvara which, regardless of the time of year, is living in festival mode!

The beautiful and historic city of Galway is a 35 minutes drive and for those who do not wish to venture too far, the lights of this magical city can be viewed from across the bay in New Quay.

For those who are keen walkers, there are many local routes to be discovered. Surfers are only 1hour from the waves of Lahinch. Avid golfers are in their element with the World Renowned Lahinch, Doonbeg, Gort, and Galway Bay Golf Courses all within driving distance.

The peaceful village of New Quay is set on the coast of Galway Bay, overlooking the Aughinish Peninsula and submerged within the beautiful limestone landscape of the World-renowned Burren.

Linnanes pub and seafood restaurant is famous for it's locally produced organic food and Galway bay fresh fish, provided by the local fisherman Gerry. His wife Martina, also sells the fresh fish from a shop beside Linnanes, for those who are happy to cook at home!

The Russell Gallery and Teashop is a wonderful location to view works of art by local and international artists whilst enjoying a strong coffee or even a glass of prosecco and antipasta.

The Flaggy Shore, which inspired Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney to write 'Postscript', is a unique and stunning setting. The contrast of limestone flags, flora and fauna, located only in the Burren and Scandanavia, makes this a historic and magical area.
