  • "Just spent a week staying at Bluebell Cottage and have to say it's one of the most homely comfy places I've ever rented."

    Everything about the place was absolutely perfect, the attention to detail in every room to make your stay comfortable was second to none. We arrived to meet Finbarr & Geraldine there with a blazing fire going for us and a plate of freshly home baked delicious scones. Fridge & cupboards had enough stock to get us settled in and the sitting room was stocked up with heaps of firewood & coal. Everything in the cottage was in perfect working order and the entire place was immaculate clean. Beautiful lay out of rooms , perfect place for families or couples with excellent space to accommodate. I would highly recommend this holiday home~away~from~home cottage, beautiful location only a few mins walk from Spanish Point beach and a short drive from Miltown Malbay, Quilty & Tue White Strand. We had a lovely relaxing week staying at Bluebell and I will definitely be booking in again . Mandy ✨

    The cottage was warm and cosy and its pics don’t do it justice at all. Lovely big garden and surrounds. Local supermarket and pub and great location for sightseeing. All in all great value for money. Great stay, thanks for the memories

    All home comforts and a few more besides. Spotlessly clean and very well located, being close to Spanish Point beach (2 min drive). Finbar and Geraldine are the best hosts you could wish for and we hope to be back next year!

  • "The photo does not do justice to this lovely house."

    It is not practical to walk to the shop or beach because there is no pavement on the quite busy road.

  • "Amazing place to stay ."

    The pictures don’t do it justice . The house is much bigger than it shows . Every thing you can think of is provided ( and more) we would have used the pretty garden more if the weather had been warmer , but that’s just a seasonal thing . Lots of room , very efficient house too . Very little energy needed to heat . Our dog loved the huge windows and doors to keep an eye on the birds . Close to amenities and Spanish Point beach .

  • "Had a great week stay at Bluebell cottage it had everything you could ask for and spotless clean, a nice big open kitchen area looking onto a lovely big enclosed garden where a small group of rabbits would come to graze in the evening."

    It was a good base also for exploring south Clare as Kilkee was only 25 mins away (great beach and cliff walks)and then a further 15 would take you to killimer where we got the ferry across to Kerry and drove down to Dingle across the Connor Pass, and then there’s a scenic drive to loophead lighthouse where you can see nesting fulmers and guillemots on lovers leap. Travell just north from bluebell cottage will take you to Lahinch and then on to Doolin where we had a great 20 min trip to innis oirr and horse and cart ride around the isle (well worth it) A perfect week was had staying at the Lovely Bluebell cottage where hosts Ger and Finbar couldn’t have made you more welcome

    The cliffs of Moher and the Burren are musts to see, as is the local expanse of beach at Spanish point. The town of Ballyvaughn overlooking south Galway Bay is also a must, and close to the coast road of the Burren. The cottage is well equipped and in a large garden. We enjoyed the delicious scones provided by Finbarr on day one. We can recommend this cottage wholeheartedly.

    5 minutes walk into Miltown Malbay, great tourist places to visit, and 2 minutes from the beach for fabulous refreshing walks - still missed. The facilities at Bluebell Cottage were just stunning and the cottage itself was so welcoming and warming. If you want peace and quiet - it's here, but if you wanted all your friends to visit - this is the place to invite them! The owners were so welcoming and no question or assistance was a bother. As said, we still miss it and have told lots of people about it. Would definitely stay again.

    The heating system was incredible (we stayed in February), the house is extremely well appointed with extra towels, two tv's (we've small kids so this helped prevent rows on wet days), great kitchen and entertaining space. The location is excellent for a West Clare holiday, 10 mins to Lahinch and the Cliff's, 20 minutes to Kilkee and the Loop Head trail. We had a couple of minor issue's and Finbarr arrived and sorted them out within the hour! We will be back and we'd highly recommend this cottage - absolutely five star space and service. We rent in West Clare usually about three times a year and I think we've found our home from home...

    We had a pleasant surprise after a long drive from the ferry port across Ireland. The owners were there to greet us with freshly made scones and jam which were very much appreciated, what a welcoming touch! The picture on the website doesn't do it justice, as round the back there's a beautiful large extension finished to perfection, with tiled floor throughout. It is a light and airy space with a comfortable lounge area and a roomy kitchen / dining area tastefully done out. .....actually we wanted to live there!! Lots of interesting little decorations around and a lovely garden at the back. Bedrooms all good and spotlessly clean. We visited Ireland for a wedding and this was the icing on the wedding cake for us...Many thanks.

The property

A fantastic detached holiday cottage on the edge of the popular seaside village of Spanish Point, County Clare.

Lovingly refurbished and extended, the original part of this cottage dates from 1940, and incorporates a number of features from the time, with flagstones and original doors dating from the property's earlier life.

Sash windows and a stable door also add to the character of this lovely Spanish Point cottage.

There is plenty of space to gather together, with two separate sitting rooms - one with leather furniture and a traditional stone fireplace housing a cosy woodburner, and a more modern area with picture window, comfy furniture and an open fire as well as a library of books, games and DVDs.

The well-equipped kitchen and dining area offer quality fixtures and fittings, with a Kensington range and doors out onto the sunny patio area.

County Clare is renowned for its stunning coastline, and from the cottage you are perfectly placed to discover this for yourself, with a choice of Blue Flag beaches in the area and the spectacular Cliffs of Moher less than a half hour's drive.

Experience surfing for the first time at Lahinch or enjoy some traditional music in Doolin.

Whatever you decide, this quality cottage is sure to please.

About the location


Miltown Malbay 1.5 miles; Ennis 20 miles.

The village of Spanish Point is situated on the west coast of County Clare in Ireland and takes its name from the Spanish who died there in 1588, when many ships of the Spanish Armada were wrecked during the stormy weather. Today the village consists of many holiday homes, two fine hotels, a lovely beach, which is popular for swimmers and surfers alike, and a nine-hole golf course, which is one of the oldest courses in Ireland and offers wonderful views of the rugged coastline. The small town of Miltown Malbay is 1.5 miles away, offering a selection of shops and pubs, while the seaside town of Lahinch is also close by, offering great surfing opportunities. Visit the Cliffs of Moher, north of Lahinch and also Doolin, which offer superb views of the North Atlantic and the Aran Islands in clear weather, or travel further afield to Clare's County town of Ennis, which boasts unusual shops, bars, restaurants and a lively Irish music scene.

Please Note: This property will only accept check in days on a Saturday.
