  • "The cottage is in a quiet location outside Corrofin."

    It has all facilities needed and is very nice to stay at. The place is a good base for day trips, if you have a car.

  • "The house was charming and had a lot of character."

    It had a well equipped kitchen and plenty towels and linen. Only negative was the uncomfortable chairs in sitting room and old tv with only a few channels. We couldnt go out at night as we have a young baby. A tumble dryer would have been helpful as well.

  • "Everything we needed was there."

    Just one suggestion, a sweeping brush and mop would have been good to have.

Cragmoher Cottages

Corofin 1.5 miles. In the stunning Burren Region of County Clare, in the West of Ireland, sits Cragmoher House and Courtyard with its three self-catering holiday cottages. Located in a beautiful country setting on the southern edge of the Burren National Park, these three delightfully furnished Corofin cottages provide high quality accommodation for groups of up to 18 people. With one semi-detached cottage and two apartments (which are linked by an adjoining door), these Corofin cottages are perfect for discovering the local attractions. The Burren (from an Irish word "Boíreann" meaning a rocky place) is world renowned for its unique ecological environment, as it is an exposed Limestone Pavement, which is rich in herb and plant life and has some of the best wildflower meadows in all of Ireland. Set just 1.5 miles from the village of Corofin, with its local amenities, these Corofin cottages are also a perfect base for discovering the County Clare coastline. The seaside village of Lahinch is just 13 miles away from these Corofin cottages and has fine sandy beaches, an 18-hole championship golf course and numerous activities such as sea fishing, diving, surfing and sailing. From these Corofin cottages, you can also visit the Aran Islands or take a day trip to Spanish Point, named after the Spanish who died there in 1588, when many ships of the Spanish Armada were wrecked during the stormy weather. These are three superb Corofin cottages, which can be booked individually or as a group and provide welcoming accommodation, no matter what your reason is for visiting County Clare.

Described as the southern gateway to the Burren (one of Europe's most distinctive limestone landscapes), the pretty village of Corofin peacefully rests on the River Fergus and offers a good range of shops, pubs and eateries, whilst providing home to the Clare Heritage Centre in St. Catherine's Church. Famous for its music, with festivals occurring throughout the year, this charming village also provides easy access to the visitor centre at Dysert O' Dea castle, where the 15th century round tower and renovated castle accommodate a delightful museum and tea room. The surrounding area is great for hill walking and cycling, whilst the golf course at the seaside resort of Lahinch is worth a visit. With fishing on the River Fergus and in the twelve lakes scattered throughout the area, The Cliffs of Moher, trips to the Aran Islands, Craggaunowen and Bunratty Castle all easily accessible, this lovely location has plenty to offer!
