Whether you are here to work or play, The Nook @ Kinlough, is the perfect place to gather focus, relax and unwind. Nestled beneath Kinlough House, The Nook is a warm and welcoming two-bed offering beautiful views of Galway Bay. Local amenities include the infamous Salthill Prom, Galway Golf Club, tennis courts, swimming pools, parks and playgrounds. It is a residential area which is quiet, warm and safe to explore. Private parking is available and we are on the Bus Eireann 402 bus route and the City Direct 410 bus route.
The Nook consists of 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 single bed), an open plan kitchen and living/office area, cooking station and bathroom. Outdoor seating is provided for your leisure. The smart TV gives you access to your Netflix and social media accounts.
My parents, Kevin and Mary, live in the main house. You may bump into them but I will be your first port of call should you require any information or help with your booking.
Work - Lets get this out of the way first!
Access fibre broadband and a comfortable and quiet workspace in the living/kitchen area. The dining table may also be used as a work station. A HDMI cable is available to connect your laptop to a 32" TV which is perfect if you prefer to work on a bigger screen. A scanner and printer can be provided upon request.
Play - Now for the good stuff!
Take advantage of the infamous Salthill Prom which is just minutes from The Nook. Revitalise your senses with a stroll along the Prom into Salthill (takes 30mins) or the city centre (1 hour). The view is spectacular and you are sure to meet friendly faces along the way. Don't forget to kick the wall!
Take a deep dive (or maybe just a dip) at Blackrock Salthill. Found half way up the Prom, it hosts a changing area, seating area, diving boards and steps into the water. Blackrock is a swimming institution that is enjoyed year round by the brave, as well as tourists and locals alike.
Enjoy a round of golf at Galway Golf Club (10 min walk) which "offers the discerning visitor a Championship Standard 18 hole Parkland Course with spectacular views over Galway Bay, the Burren and Aran Islands...".
The Village of Salthill offers a host of excellent restaurants, cafes, bakeries and pubs. I have lived in the village for almost 20 years now and I absolutely love it.
Galway is a medieval city. The city centre unfurls this beauty in a vibrant, deeply cultural and cobbled feast of food, music, art and antiquity. Don't forget to go off the beaten track. There are many amazing restaurants, pubs and cafes just outside the city centre.
