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

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!

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.

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.

CUAN BEAG TRULY WAS OUR "HOME" IN IRELAND!

Cuan Beag truly was our "home" in Ireland!
  • 5 of 5
Bernadette and Seamus have created a lovely and comfortable holiday home, which I wholeheartedly recommend to everyone! From the comfortable furniture, to the beautiful art work, to the gorgeous views, and all the wonderful amenities, Cuan Beag surpassed our every expectation. Everything was as promised on the website, and then some. The location was perfect for our day trips to explore Galway, the Burren, Clonmacnoise, all around County Clare, Tipperary, and Connemara! If you are going to the west of Ireland, you should rent Cuan Beag - it's the perfect home base - emphasis on "home!"

THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR A WONDERFUL VACATION.

  • 5 of 5
This is my second time renting Seamus and Bernadette's beautiful home in the Burren and it is even nicer now than it was five years ago. The house itself is delightful and the area has so much to do. The kitchen is a blessing for making a full meal or just coffee and a snack. The view from the house is incredible and very relaxing. I can't say enough good things about this property.

From Stephanie's Russell Gallery to Linanne's Pub to the Flaggy Shore and Kinvara, the setting is perfect. We did not rent a car; we took the bus (which stops at Linanne's) to Galway City for shopping and a local cab into Kinvara. We hired a driver for a day-long tour through the Connemara area. Perfect way to avoid driving/renting a car in Ireland! Seamus and Bernadette are wonderful and thoughtful hosts who make you feel like their home is yours.

Put this property on the top of your list. You will be glad you did!

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN SPECTACULAR AREA.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fabulous week in this very comfortable 4 bedroom house last summer. From start to finish we felt completely at home. While the open plan layout of the kitchen-dining room allowed quality family time, the house itself - with a separate sitting area upstairs, en-suite rooms, satellite TV and WIFI, meant that we all had our own space. The kitchen and utility area was fully kitted out with everything we needed for family meals. With the weather so good, we made the most of the outside patio area for barbeques.

The area itself is awe inspiring, surrounded by the famous landscape of the Burren and just a few minutes away from the Flaggy Shore, the hills and stunning views.
There was so much to do for our teenage children. My husband and son loved the fact that they could fish, swim, kayak and cycle, all at the doorstep. Having done numerous walks of the Flaggy shore, Finavarra and general locality, my daughter and I took a trip to Galway city for some retail therapy - just a quick 35mins away.
The evenings were spent in the spacious bay window area of the house - watching the sun go down over stunning Galway Bay. We also spent some time in the famous Linnanes pub and Lobster bar, where we enjoyed meeting the locals and sampling some fine food and wine.
Our hope is to return to Cuan Beag to do some more exploring of this wonderful part of Ireland.

BRILLIANT BURREN WAY IN MAY

  • 5 of 5
We came for a week in May,- Cuan Beag the place to stay
To taste life the Burren way,leaving city life far,far away,
We wandered down to the shore and sat for a while or more,
To hear the sea birds cries and the lark high up in the skies,
Hardly a soul around,barely a human sound,
Just the peace on a mild May Day,
As we lived life the Burren Way.

Wish we had the gift of composition. The late Nobel poet laureate,Seamus Heaney, found inspiration for his poem "Postscript" , in this scenic region.
We were welcomed, hospitably , by the owners , to their clean and comfortable home which is tastefully furnished .
The views are stunning across the Galway Bay to Aughanish Island , Connemara and Galway City. The light is constantly changing casting shadows over the mountains, facilitating great photographic opportunities. We had access to books on the Burren which educated us on the flora,fauna and walks of this amazing heritage landscape.
We chose to stay local,visiting the magestic Cliffs of Moher with a day trip to Galway city.
The local,Linnanes Lobster Bar , provided us with delicious seafood and even better pints. A coffee at Steffs Gallery was refreshing after a long walk.
Our intention is to return soon and will be recommending Cuan Beag ,with its amazing views ,to our friends.
We made many friends , especially with the local dog,Bingo

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.
