Full description

This stylish Dutch sailing barge for two is beautifully moored on the scenic banks of Lough Atalia, with easy access to the delights of Galway City.

Lovingly transformed into a luxurious couples' retreat, Catharina is a historic Dutch sailing barge that's quite unlike any other!

You'll find her moored on the banks of the tidal Lough Atalia, right next to Galway City hotspots that include the famous G Hotel, the Huntsman Inn and the Eye Cinema... which means finding something to do won't be a problem.

Yet you'll have to disembark first, and that really could be a problem! The spacious barge is perfectly equipped for sumptuous style and comfort, including a large kitchen with granite counter tops, a snuggly lounge with a wood burning stove, and an indulgent bathroom that boasts a bath and a shower.

You'll even have underfloor heating to keep you toasty, while the cabin bedroom is furnished for a dreamy night's sleep on the gentle waves.

With your holiday scene perfectly set, all you have to do is open a bottle of wine and take in that amazing sunset, as it melts over the sparkling horizon.
