This Galway Bed & Breakfast is located in the center of a walkers paradise with the Western Way starting in Oughterard and running along Lough Corrib.    There are also several shorter walking and cycling routes in the area.   A walk up Newtown Hill, behind the farmhouse, affords scenic views of Ross Lake and the surrounding area.

Moycullen is the ideal base to tour Connemara,  the Burren in County Clare, Cong, Westport, Croagh Patrick and Achill Island in County Mayo.   As it is  close to Galway City a day trip to visit the City of the Tribes is a must.   Galway  is a very vibrant city steeped in history and it offers marvelous shopping.    The purchase of a Claddagh Ring as a momento of Galway is often the highlight of the trip to Galway City.
