Kinvara 2.2 miles. Nestled in the rolling Irish countryside near the charming sea port village of Kinvara, County Galway is Mountain View. This idyllic dwelling benefits from a fantastic location overlooking the hill and mountains, perfect for those looking to explore the myriad of encompassing walks as well as an open-plan living space welcoming two guests for a romantic retreat in Ireland. Cross the threshold into this romantic bolthole and head straight for the fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up a delicious meal that you and your partner can enjoy upon the intimate breakfast bar. Or if weather permits, take advantage of the shared firepit in the owner’s garden where you can fire up a barbecue and indulge in an alfresco affair with a truly spectacular view; be sure to pop open a bottle of fizz and toast your getaway with a memorable backdrop. When the sky darkens, head inside and snuggle up on the plush sofas in front of the soothing warmth of the woodburning stove before washing off the day’s adventures in the sleek ground-floor shower room and catching up on your rest in the mezzanine double bedroom. Make the most of this coastal setting by venturing down to Traught Beach where you can stroll along the sand while admiring the breath-taking view across the water or the more adventurous can take to the water on kayaks or canoes, a unique way to experience your picturesque surroundings! Take a scenic drive to Kinvara where you can pick up all your essentials or treat your partner to date night at Keogh’s Bar and Restaurant or The Pier Head Bar and Restaurant. Or travel further afield to Galway to immerse yourself in the area’s past at the medieval ruins of The Hall of Red Earl, the Lynch Memorial Window or the nearby impressive, 15th-century Oranmore Castle which you can tour. Galway is also home to Galway Atlantaquaria, the National Aquarium of Ireland, Galway Cathedral, The Latin Quarter, The Fisheries Watchtower Museum and the Midway Point of the Wild Atlantic Way which spans an impressive 1600 miles offering beautiful sun sets and endless opportunities to explore charming coastal villages; perfect for keen ramblers!

Kinvara is a lovely seaside village in south County Galway, situated on the edge of the world-famous "Burren" in Galway Bay. Dunguaire Castle marks the entrance to Kinvara, where mediaeval feasts are still hosted, and the small harbour still houses working specimens of 'Galway Hookers,' the majestic sailing ships that used to sell their wares between Connemara and Kinvara. There are various bars, stores, and cafés here, as well as a renowned farmer's market every Friday and two festivals commemorating culture and tradition each year. The small city of Galway, popularly known as the "city of festivals," with its charming alleyways and colourful nightlife, is within easy reach, while the Burren National Park and Nature Reserve, where animals and plant life abound, is only 7 miles distant. A fantastic location at any time of year.
