The Marian Lodge is set in gardens in Salthill, County Galway. It is close to the promenade, beach and Leisure land and located adjacent to the Wild Atlantic Way and golf course. Tours can be arranged to the Aran Islands, Connemara and the Burren.
Marian Lodge is an inviting, family-run, three-star guesthouse with four diamond AA rating and membership of the Premier Guest Houses of Ireland. Located in Salthill, County Galway, Marian Lodge is just around the corner from the Galway Golf Course and Driving Range. Facilities for fishing, tennis, horse-riding and windsurfing are all within easy reach. Guests may take a very short walk to a nice, quiet pub and restaurant, or venturing a little further on to Salthill reveals a wide range of restaurants, pubs and shops.
Your Hostess, Celine, is originally from County Donegal and now provides a warm Donegal welcome and a home-from-home atmosphere in her spacious modern home. This beautiful family home has six ensuite rooms all comprehensively equipped with cable TV, orthopaedic beds, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, clock radio, and tea/coffee making facilities.
Celine is an excellent cook who bakes her own bread, which provides a tasty addition to the extensive choice at breakfast time. This meal is served from 0800 to 0930 in the dining room, which is furnished with an elegant Waterford chandelier, Victorian and Italian antique furniture, and has splendid views of Galway Bay. An interesting feature of the house is a collection of vintage pots and pans displayed around the rustic fireplace.
Celine is also on hand to help guests plan a daily itinerary. She books daily bus tours from outside her home to Connemara, taking in Clifden, Kylemore Abbey, and the impressive scenery of Lough Inagh. This dramatic landscape was inspirational to, and played no small part in the success of, films such as The Quiet Man and The Field. Another daily bus tour will bring you to The Burren, where limestone rock covers the landscape, and alpine and arctic plants grown and thrive between and within the crevices of the rock formations (for which this region is famous). Another highlight of the region are the Cliffs of Moher, where visitors can view the wild Atlantic Ocean pound the rock 200 metres below the cliff edge upon which they stand. Guests can also stop and explore the Ailwee Caves upon their journey.
Tickets are on sale at Marian Lodge for the daily ferry trips to the Aran Islands, and the bus (which services the boat) will pick guests up just outside Marian Lodge.
