  • Description


    Hi, we are a family of 4 who live 15 minutes by car to Galway city and 15 mins to the beach. We are on the gateway to Connemara. We have two amazing girls and three fish. We are into the outdoors, yoga and healthy living but enjoy a bit music and the odd pint as well. We live within walking distance of two lakes and some lovely walking trails and the local village of Moycullen. There is access to a bike, lock, helmet and high visibility vest. The village has frequent buses in to Galway city and out to Connemara.
