The Property

Doolin 1.5 miles. A traditional Irish cottage, in the townland of Doonagore, close to the fishing village of Doolin, on the west coast of County Clare. This Doolin cottage is steeped in history and is most renowned as the birthplace of the famous Russell family, one of the best-known traditional family musicians from Ireland. The lives of the three Russell brothers are celebrated with a musical festival every February in the village. The cottage is in a fantastic cliff-top location, with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and towards the Cliffs of Moher from the large picture window in the kitchen. This Doolin cottage has been lovingly renovated and furnished to retain its Irish character including flagged floors in one of the bedrooms and in the sitting room. In the sitting room you will also see many photos and memorabilia from Russell family history, along with the large stone hearth and solid fuel stove, high vaulted ceiling and sash windows, which all add to the history and charm of this fantastic Doolin cottage.
