    “A cozy yet roomy cabin in the Burren with excellent amenities.”
    This was a well appointed cottage, near the major attractions of the Burren. Maureen, the owner was very obliging and friendly, as were all the people in the area. Terrific views of the Burren through the living room window, Wish we could have stayed longer.

The property

A lovely, detached bungalow in a small and well-kept development just outside the village of Bellharbour, County Clare.

With three comfortable double bedrooms and a bright, open-plan kitchen and sitting area, this pretty Bellharbour cottage is the perfect spot for families or friends to enjoy a wonderful Irish getaway.

Extensive views of The Burren, a landscape like no other and a hill-walker's paradise, can be enjoyed from the sunny patio of this Bellharbour cottage.

The nearby Burren Outdoor Centre also offers kayaking, rock climbing and caving for children or for the young at heart.

The local pub is just a short stroll while the arts, culture and nightlife of Galway City are only 45 minutes' drive from your Bellharbour cottage.

The coastal village of Ballyvaughan is just a short drive away and is home to a range of superb seafood restaurants, while a short trip to the north brings you to Flaggy Shore, made famous by the poet Seamus Heaney.

County Clare is renowned as one of Ireland's most naturally stunning counties - spend the morning surfing on the Blue Flag beach at Lahinch, visit the spectacular Cliffs of Moher in the afternoon and watch the sun set over Doolin Pier before enjoying some 'craic agus ceol' (fun and music) at the famous Gus O'Connor's pub.

After a fun-packed day, return to a warming open fire and a cosy bed to dream of your next adventure on your Bellharbour cottage holiday.

About the location


Ballyvaughan 5 miles; Kinvara 9 miles; Ennis 25 miles.

Bellharbour is a quiet and tranquil Irish village situated on the most easterly point of Ballyvaughan Bay and only nine miles from the picturesque seaside village of Kinvara in south County Galway. Kinvara is located on the edge of the world renowned ‘Burren', on Galway Bay. The entrance into Kinvara is marked by Dunguaire Castle, where medieval banquets are still hosted, and the quaint harbour still holds working examples of 'Galway Hookers', the majestic sailing craft which used to sell their wares between Connemara & Kinvara. Home to numerous pubs, shops and eateries, and hosting two festivals celebrating culture and heritage each year, there is no shortage of things to do in Kinvara. The nearby Aillwee Caves make for a great family day out and the coastal village of Ballyvaughan where the Burren Way Walk starts is only 5 miles away from Bellharbour. The small city of Galway, affectionately known as the "city of festivals", with its pretty alleyways and colourful nightlife is within easy reach, and only a little further is Burren National Park where animals and plant life are abundant, and there are numerous walking opportunities. A wonderful location, at any time of the year.
