How to Get There

The Way to Kinvara

Kinvara is easily accessible from Shannon Airport. When you leave the airport, head north on Nl8 towards Galway. Continue through Ennis, Gort and several smaller towns.  The next town to watch out for is Kilcolgan, where you make a left on to N67 towards Kinvara (there is a signpost on the corner). There are a couple smaller roads leading to Kinvara from various points along N18, but the road from Kilcolgan is the best.

N67 goes through the heart of “downtown” Kinvara.  Before you reach the town, you will pass Dunguaire Castle on the right. Delamain Lodge is visible opposite the castle on a green hill on the other side of the bay.

After passing the castle, continue driving along the sea wall towards the town. Turn right when the seawall ends, just before entering the town. As a landmark, look for Connolly’s pub on the comer (painted magenta with gold lettering). Continue driving along the water with the quay and the pier on the right. The road will meet up with another sea wall. Drive along the seawall and the road will soon bring you to the silver gates of Delamain Lodge.

Drive across the cattle guard through the gates and up the driveway to the house. Brigid  Flaherty, a local friend of ours, will have the house open and ready for your arrival. Her husband, David, takes care of the animals and the grounds. Both Brigid and David will be happy to help in any way needed.
