Looking out and towards Knockma Hill, the Friar’s Room recalls the name of a famous horse owned by the Kirwan Family. He was the talk of the racing community in Galway. In a gallant and magnificent effort he won a particularly historic race. For John and Mary Kirwan, this was a race that literally saved the family from ruin and launched the Kirwan name to rest evenly and fairly in Galway history.
With the aspect of Knockma watching serenely, the ensuite room with its sleigh bed and furnishings invites you to relax within the Hidden History of Rural Ireland. Enjoy the shared sound of silence and the reminders of where our own histories dwell.2 person B&B – €220 per night
