Superhosts zijn ervaren, hoog gewaardeerde verhuurders die zijn toegewijd aan het verzorgen van een geweldig verblijf voor hun gasten.
Perfect for isolating! If you need to quarantine, you're welcome here. The house and garden are private, with board games and Netflix for entertainment. You can see no one: we can arrange groceries left on your doorstep, and check in is with a lockbox. The house is meticulously cleaned, and gaps are left between guests to ensure everyone's safety.

Here for pleasure? Located right in the centre of friendly and creative Athenry, it's a perfect nest from which to explore the wild West of Ireland.

De ruimte
At the start of 2017, this 1906 mid-terrace was falling apart. Lovingly restored, it's now full of personality and modern features. From the outside it's a small and ordinary townhouse, but inside it opens out to be spacious and airy, bursting with colour and comfort. It truly is a home where anyone who enters must expect the unexpected.

Once you shut the front door, you shut out the world. Outside noises are rarely heard, and it's easy to forget anything else exists. Skylights in the hall and main bathroom mean that light floods the house. Want to unwind in the bathtub? Turn off the lights, and have the bright moon keep you company. Prefer showers? Modern rain showers are in both the bathroom and ensuite.

If you love to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with herbs and spices for guest use. Or if you just want a tea or coffee, you're sure to find something to your taste in the large selection.

Want to unwind with a film? The 65-inch 4K TV upstairs has Netflix for guest use, a comfy sofa to recline on, and a sound bar to give you an immersive experience.

The house comfortably sleeps up to six people in the two bedrooms and the upstairs TV room/gym. The sofa bed has a full-thickness 4ft (a small double) memory foam mattress, so it's comfortable to sleep on for multiple nights.

Super-fast 100 Mbps Internet access is available, with four access points providing strong WiFi signal throughout the house.

In the summer the 100ft garden, newly landscaped with a patio, is perfect for enjoying the elusive Irish sun.

Toegang voor gasten
Guests have access to the entire house and garden, with the exception of the small cupboard upstairs.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
We prefer to meet guests in person, but if you're arriving in the early hours of the morning self check-in can be arranged, as we have a lock box by the front door.

If you’re arriving by car, there is paid street parking right outside the house, and long term parking a 2 minute walk away for €3 a day.

It's a small, 100+ year old terraced house, so there's no bathroom on the ground floor and a reasonably steep staircase. If you have mobility issues the stairs could become tiring.

And finally, by staying in our AirBnB you're supporting local animals. Every month we sponsor local dogs at Madra, a dog shelter in Connemara who do amazing work.

We're currently sponsoring the Croga family, a family of 34 dogs taken from a hoarding situation currently being rehabilitated. You can read more about them and see their progress on Madra's website or Facebook page (search for Madra, mutts anonymous).

Locatie

Athenry, County Galway, Ierland

Athenry is a medieval town which still has its 13th century street plan, and is one of only two towns in Ireland with the original town wall (part of which is at the foot of my garden). Athenry castle and priory are a short walk from the front door, behind the heritage centre which is at the end of the street. Sleepy at first sight, the town always has something going on, whether live music in one of the local pubs, or lively conversation in the cafes. There's a large supermarket a 10 minute walk away, or you can stock up in the local fruit and vegetable shop, and at the Friday market at the end of the street.

Galway, the heart of the West, is an incredibly lively city on the Atlantic with an amazing nightlife. Regular buses and trains running until 1am will take you to the centre in 20 minutes. If you prefer nature, Connemara national park is an easy day trip away and boasts beautiful hiking trails, castles, and spectacular abbeys.

Closer to home there's Coole Park, where the writer Yeats spent his days, and many forests and beachside walks. All are within half an hour's drive.

I'm a writer based in Amsterdam with my dog Mymble, and husband Brian, who's Californian. I own a house in Athenry, Ireland, which bought after I moved back to be closer to my parents. I completely renovated it and redesigned it, and consider it my retreat away from reality. Now that we live in Amsterdam, I'm happy to be able to share it with other world travellers.
