Welcome to Spring Cottage; my lovingly restored traditional Irish cottage which has been in my family for 5 generations. It is an A1 energy efficient home with all mod cons in a rural setting, close to city centre and seaside. Relaxing and peaceful environment. You have your own section of the cottage, private ensuite room with a fabulous bed. During your stay you may have access to the garden. Parking is also available on the property.

The space
The Tierney homestead cottage is 250 years old. Spring cottage is 2km to city centre and on the Wild Atlantic Way- yet in a peaceful rural setting.
My great great Grandparents home came to me in poor condition and I spent many years bringing it up to a A1 energy efficient home yet carefully retaining its authentic heritage. I connected the old barn with the old house and this gives guests a section of the cottage (more or less) to themselves. There is a two story lounge with TV and books (I use upstairs as an office at times). Your large bedroom is ensuite with a luxurious kingsize bed and I insist on the very best quality linen. I am very particular with a keen eye for detail.
The cottage is on its own grounds, surrounded by fields and has parking available on site.
I live in the old barn section and it is joined to the cottage by the kitchen where we can share tea or coffee or you are welcome to a light breakfast which I provide.

There is a bus to the city centre from right outside the door which departs every 30 minutes.
The city centre is a mere stroll away (30 minute walk) or a 10 minute free-wheel cycle down the hill - if you have a bike !
The seaside resort of Salthill with the beautiful promenade and famous Blackrock beach and diving tower is 30 minute walk from the house. I go swimming in the sea every day - you are always welcome to join me! Splash!
