Bookeen Hall is a 200 year old church about 20 minutes from Galway City and within easy reach of the Cliffs of Moher, The Burren and Connemara.

We offer a private room (with a king size bed and a single bed) with a private bathroom. For larger groups we can make a second room available (with a king size bed), so can accommodate up to 5. We live here with our two dogs and look forward to meeting you!

We recommend having a rental car. The nearest train station is 8 miles away in Athenry!

El lugar

A protected building and national monument, Bookeen Hall is a former Church of Ireland Chapel built in 1820. Part of the Dunsandle estate, the church was used for services by the estate’s Church of Ireland congregation. Built in stone, the rectangular hall with its large gothic windows and solid bell-tower can be seen across fields and woodland, making it a distinctive and well known local landmark.

It was deconsecrated in 1920 and 200 years after it was built it was given a new lease of life and converted into a two bedroom home.

Inside the interiors are bright, open and contemporary. The church is comprised of a large open plan living/dining room and two bedrooms. The guest bedroom available to visitors has access to its own bell tower/reading room with great views of the surrounding countryside and private bathroom complete with claw-foot bathtub. The guest room has a king size bed and a single bed and can accommodate three people.

Bookeen Hall is situated on the edge of Dunsandle wood which has some great walking and running routes, which your hosts, both keen runners, would be happy to show you. Quiet and peaceful, it is surrounded by woodland, and fields full of cattle and sheep.

Easily accessible by car, Bookeen Hall is just 2 mins from the Dublin / Galway motorway (Dublin airport is 2 hours away); about 1 hour from Shannon airport; a 20 min drive from beautiful Galway city; and located just a 10 min drive from the neighbouring towns of Athenry and Loughrea, both of which have a good selection of cafes, restaurants, and bars, and good public transport links. The church is ideally located for day trips to Connemara and the Cliffs of Moher and Burren region.

Enjoy our home baking with tea/coffee when you arrive and a continental breakfast each morning.

What to expect: a restored church – with a light, bright and homey feel to it. It’s also home to a greyhound called Mouse and a lurcher called Birdy who can’t wait to meet you!

We loved staying in Chris and Orla's home. They have done amazing work in renovating the building and making it feel so homely. Everything was very comfortable in our room and we had everything we needed. Their hospitality was excellent and we especially enjoyed our breakfast spread. As dog lovers one of the highlights for us was definitely their two gorgeous dogs who are very sociable without being overly energetic! We would definitely recommend staying here to anybody visiting the Galway area.

Chris and Orla are very welcoming and they made us feel very at home. It' s a beautiful church conversion and looks even better than the photos. Our kids loved meeting Mouse the greyhound. Chris was very helpful suggesting places to eat and a lovely walk in the woods. We will definitely go back.

Wow is all that comes to mind. Chris and Orla are superhosts that really treated us great and were awesome to meet. A phenomenal experience to say the least. A really amazing home with really cool touches everywhere. We were met by Orla with coffee and homemade brownies to start. We then explored around the home to find amazing detail after amazing detail. The bedroom was extremely spacious and the beds were really comfortable. Everything was really clean and we had everything we needed including waters in the room right next to suggestions on where to go. The bathroom was really nice, spacious, clean and comfortable. Mouse, their dog, was an added bonus. He is a super sweet rescue greyhound who you can't help but love. In the morning, Orla and Chris prepared a great breakfast with scones, toasts, muffins, breads, yogurts, granolas, nuts, fresh fruits and coffee of course. It was a restaurant-esque spread and really well done. We cannot say enough great things about staying here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cool home with phenomenal hosts! Thanks again Chris and Orla, you are amazing.

Chris and Orla are absolutely fantastic, and the property is amazing. They provided us with so many helpful tips about the local area and how to get around, as well as suggestions for food and sightseeing. They even provided better directions than our GPS did to get around due to a new motorway opening 10 days earlier. The church itself is gorgeous, with the perfect combination of modern (and doggy) touches blending in with the older aesthetic. Between their generous hospitality, the beautiful property, and Mouse, their Greyhound, we loved staying with them. We will absolutely visit them again next time we are in Ireland.
