Guest Reviews


    • “The cottage was lovely and the owners were very friendly. The location was ideal as we wanted peace and quiet but we were not far from the main attractions in the area. It was just what we were looking for. Beautiful.”

    Mrs Diodati-Konrad, Munich, August 2014

    • “We stayed in eight cottages during our two months in Ireland. This large house had the most wonderful view across the lake and mountains-very grand. If you wanted to sit and relax in a beautiful peaceful place, this is it. However, Oakview is located in the beautiful Beara Peninsular, and close to the famous Ring of Kerry, and Killarney National Park, so there are many great drives to be had. The scenery is truly jaw-dropping! We also had day trips to the rugged south coast. The cottage is comfortable, the hosts friendly and helpful.”

    Mr Hackett, Macleay Island, May 2014

    • “This cottage is in a quiet, peaceful and rural area. It has modern amenities yet retains charm and character. The hosts were helpful and friendly. We had many day trips from here. The Burren is amazing, the famous Cliffs of Moher are not far, and to the east lies Lough Derg. Closer to home, the town of Quin has interesting historical buildings and ruins and more than one traditional Irish pub.”

    Mr Hackett, Macleay Island, May 2014

About the location


Ennis 6 miles.

The peaceful and picturesque village of Quin is situated 6 miles east of the town of Ennis, in County Clare. With a small population of around 240 residents, this rapidly developing tourist centre is home to a 15th century Abbey, all year round fishing on the River Rine and an equestrian centre, with a number of stud farms in the area. Two miles from Quin is a 15th Century tower house, Knappogue Castle, which, having been beautifully restored, is open for public viewing between April and October, while medieval banquets are held in the main part of the castle between May and October. County Clare's principal town, Ennis, is just 6 miles away on the River Fergus, boasting a market square and narrow streets dotted with unusual shops, bars and restaurants. Offering a lively Irish music scene, the town is also home to Ennis Friary, which houses numerous 15th and 16th century sculptures carved into local hard limestone. An ideal location for touring the counties of Clare, Limerick and Galway.
