Just the nicest house we have ever stayed in . My family of 10 adults 3 young children and 2 dogs stayed here in August . The house has everything you need and more . It’s also wheelchair accessible which was important to us . It’s location is private and secluded . The house itself was big very comfortable and clean . It had all the ammenities you could need and also had a bar , jukebox and pool table . We all had a great week at Turlough view and the owner Brendan is very friendly and helpful . The only problem I can think of is that we were only staying one week . I would highly recommend it to everyone wishing to stay in the Galway area .

Turlough View is stunning! large, comfortable and very clean. Nice, secluded location with wonderful grounds. Fully equipped with pool table, jukebox etc. Owner gave us lovely private tour of the property. Definitely recommended!
Well stocked with quality appliances and comfortable furniture. Large and very clean. The grounds are lovely and private. A kind welcome of fresh cakes and a tour by the owner was very appreciated. Pool table, jukebox etc were amazing for nights in. Property is secluded and roads not really suitable to walk along so a car is essential for shops etc. The house is better than the photos!!
