Turlough view was a 5 star delight our family of 10 spent a fantastic week in this tranquil heaven.
We had great Craic playing pool in our own pub reliving our misspent youth.
Turlough view has everything one could need for a family staycation and it’s proximity to Galway and the surrounding area is perfect.
Anyone booking Turlough View is in for a 5 Star Treat from the second you drive through the gates.
Thanks Brendan looking forward to next year

Three families, three generations (from 2-64) six adults, six children had a wonderful week in this dream house.

Back home now with hearts full to bursting with such happy memories.
The house has everything you would need but lovely as it is it is the outside space that is so awesome.
Bring bikes for the long driveway or give the kids their first driving lessons!
Walk by the river and spot the myriads of painted lady butterflies on the thistles or the dragon/damsel flies by the water.

The gardens are magical - a mixture of shrubs, wild flowers and long grasses where if you can keep the kids quiet for long enough you will hear grasshoppers.

We didn't have perfect weather BUT even so the iPads stayed shut, the games remained in their boxes, colouring books unopened an the tv rarely on - bliss.

We have brought home six tanned, rosy cheeked, fitter, happier kids and all of us cannot wait to go back.

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 .
