The Property

This is a lovely, single storey, New Quay cottage, set on 5 acres, situated between Ballyvaughan and Kinvara, half a mile from New Quay, in the Burren region, County Clare. This semi-detached New Quay cottage is a wonderful touring base for this part of Ireland, and with lots of lovely features it is ideal all year round. Enjoy wonderful sea views from two of the bedrooms, and on a clear day, this New Quay cottage boasts views all the way across to Galway City from the comfortable sitting room. Close by, the famous Flaggy Shore, where The Burren meets the sea at Galway Bay, of which Seamus Heaney wrote, is wonderful for an inspiring walk, or for budding photographers to take stunning shots of natural, breathtaking beauty. For a tasty meal, visit Linnane's Lobster Bar for fresh seafood, or go towards the Martello Tower and get home-made Linnalla ice cream, or instead simply relax and enjoy a BBQ in the garden of your New Quay cottage.
