Our family run cattery is located in Kinvara, Co. Galway. Pamper your cat by booking our first class 5-star cat hotel for their next staycation. Nestled on the edge of the Burren, close to Galway – Clare border, along the Wild Atlantic Way you’ll find our unique luxury cat hotel. Exclusively designed and decorated in a relaxed “make yourself at home” style. Our cat guests have access not only to their private guestroom but also to our comfortable traditional “Living Room” and our outdoor “Garden Rooms”.
The overall cattery design concept is for a contemporary look with a traditional comfortable homely feel using a combination of soft furnishings placed against a clean white backdrop. The Lodge is decorated with pictures and paintings on the walls, wood effect tiled flooring and a wood burning stove which all adds up to make your cat feel at home.
All 8 guestrooms are wonderfully comfortable accommodations, elegantly decorated with our cat guests privacy, comfort and relaxation at the heart of the design. Each room has its own electric wall mounted heater ensuring your cats are always snug during their stay with us. As an optional add-on service we have webcams in each guestroom which allow you to check on your cats during their stay just by accessing a webpage from your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
We have 6 Classic Rooms and 2 Superior Rooms. Our Classic Rooms accommodate 1 or 2 cats sharing from the same household. They are designed to allow cat guests privacy while settling down in their own space but also to maximise their views to the stimulating Garden Rooms as well as the bird feeders and butterfly friendly planting beyond. The Superior Rooms are more generous in size and accommodate up to 4 cats sharing from the same household. Each Superior Room has a snoozing area overlooking the Living Room so the cat guests can feel relaxed in front of the wood burning stove and watch TV without leaving their beds.
All guests, at their owners discretion, will have access to our Living Room and Garden Rooms, giving the cat guests a chance to socialise in a supervised meeting space or exercise and breathe in the fresh Burren air in the Garden Rooms while doing a spot of bird watching with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
We keep owners updated about the progress of their cats during their stay by either private messages or publicly via Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. We’d be delighted for you to follow us even before your cat comes to stay.
You are very welcome to visit us and have a look around the Cat Lodge in advance of your cat’s stay. We are located 15 minutes from junction 17 of the M18, approx. 45 minutes from Galway City, Ennis, Athenry, Tuam and approx. an hour from Shannon Airport, Limerick City and Athlone. Please ring or message us to arrange an appointment. All visits must be by appointment only to minimise disruption to the guests.
