"Hollybanks" is charmingly located up the Mountain, in a woodland setting 1 km from Moycullen village, 20 minutes drive west of the medieval city of Galway, ideally located to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, enjoy the many festivals, explore Connemara, the Aran Islands & angling on Lough Corrib.

The space

This large room sleeps 4. It has 1 double bed and 2 single beds - a table and 4 chairs - open log fire - cable TV - plates, cutlery, a microwave & fridge (for guests who wish to bring food to eat in) a kettle, tea, coffee, breakfast cereals and fruit are provided. Guests leave the dishes for me to clean, and go and enjoy your day.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the front seating area for picnics or to just relax with a coffee and as a smoking area.
Children may explore and play in the woods under supervision and as the responsibility of their parents/guardians.
Dog owners may use the woods to walk their pets, but we ask you to scoop your dogs poop up please! and we can offer you a place to dispose of it.
The bathroom is shared, however we give priority to guests to use it when they are in the house.

Interaction with guests

They say that Galway is "the graveyard of ambition ~ because those who come here, only do so with the intention of passing through on their way to somewhere better"..........but like so many, when I moved here I fell in love with it, and I have stayed. I enjoy meeting visitors, and sharing my knowledge of the beautiful places to see and things to do during your visit.

Other things to note

During your stay you will have the benefit of quiet seclusion of the countryside, overlooking Lough Corrib, but with it`s convenient access to Galway City where you can enjoy all the activities such as festivals, lots of excellent restaurants choices, music, dancing and much more ..... Moycullen village is the gateway to Connemara, close to ferry sailings to the Aran Islands, Inishboffin Island which I highly recommend, fishing Lough Corrib and 3 Golf courses. I would recommend a minimum stay of 2 nights in order to fully experience the city and the surrounding area. For example, you would need to allow a full day for a trip to Connemara, or one of the islands, and there is nothing more relaxing than a day spent pottering around the city, sitting out over a coffee soaking up the atmosphere, shopping in the quaint shops in the Latin Quarter, eating from a wide choice of excellent restaurants, ending the day rambling from one pub to the next experiencing the variety of vibrant live music in the city`s has to offer.

Jane has been a wonderful hostess for this lovely place. Dog lovers please beware there is a big bundle of cuteness named bailey. There is a lovely fireplace and also the room is clean. The bathroom even though shared was very tidy and had all the amenities. Jane was also kind to suggest an Indian restaurant as we had planned to cook but realised there was no kitchen. I have however given 3 stars for the following reasons: 1. Insects: there were some bugs/insects (for which Jane had provided a spray and warned us beforehand) but it caused me itching for most part of the night. 2. Space: Even though it is classified as a private room, it was more like a dormitory. It's not cramped, but we had a different picture in our mind. Also the bathroom is shared which can be inconvenient for some. Also please note that there is no kitchen to cook food only take away are allowed. (Which is mentioned by Jane online maybe we just missed it). Overall, the stay was pleasant.

My cousin and I had a wonderful stay with Jane. The room is really spacious, with a double bed and two singles and still lots of room for luggage. It has a little table and chairs within, and a kettle and fridge stocked with breakfast supplies, so it was almost like a little studio. The whole room was cosy and clean, and the bathroom was spacious and clean as well. Jane was a wonderful host, friendly and helpful, and kindly arranged to pick us up and drop us off in the village a few times because we didn't have a car and had lots of luggage, which was much appreciated. In terms of location, the house is about a 15 minute walk out of the centre of Moycullen, so it would be helpful to have a car (in which case it's only 1 minute drive), but it is a great location to base yourself for getting around the area. I would recommend this place for great value, a cosy home-away-from-home feel with a welcoming host, and a good spot for exploring the whole Connemara region and Galway. I can also recommend the amazing cafe in Moycullen called Joy - so delicious!

When I lived in Dublin I hosted foreign students learning English in my home. I enjoyed this experience, and have continued to maintain contact with many of those students over the years since. I worked in a guest house, where I enjoyed interaction with the guests and took great pride in presenting the bedrooms to perfection. I volunteer on a tourist information desk. I am a warm friendly person, I enjoy meeting visitors and I will help in any way I can recommending places of interest to my guests. As my children are now adults, and have flown the nest, it gives me the opportunity to host guests, which is something I have always wanted to do.
