Fall in love with our new 11-room luxury accommodation located on the waterfront of Ballyvaughan Harbour and Galway Bay.
After exploring the picture-perfect town of Ballyvaughan, savouring fresh seafood in our famous restaurant, we invite you in for a blissful night’s sleep to the sounds of waves gently lapping on Galway Bay.
The home of seafood in Galway Bay for more than 40 years. Traditional, rustic and local. Fresh, flavourful and full of goodness. This is what Monks food is all about – because we bring you ‘local’ at its best.
Nestled in the heart of the Burren, against a sheer backdrop of mountains which stretch all the way out to magnificent Black Head, Monks is the ideal base for sightseeing trips and outdoor adventures.
