  • "Had a wonderful stay in Bluebell Cottage."

    It’s a brilliant location and had everything we needed. The garden is fabulous, our 3 year old had the best time running about and exploring! The owners are lovely, and the homemade scones they left for us were delicious. We’ve already booked our return trip. Would definitely recommend Bluebell Cottage.

  • "Our 2nd visit to Bluebell cottage, this time with a one year old!"

    We had a lovely relaxing time, garden is great for the dogs, very safe. The garden is well kept and was abundant with butterflies and bees which was great to see. Inside the facilities are good. Big open, airy space. Travelcot and highchair were good quality and the cooking facilities are excellent. One minor negative, some of the door handles need tightened up. Highly recommended

  • "Bluebell Cottage was absolutely lovely and Finbar was a most delightful host!"

    We were greeted with a plate of homemade scones with jam, butter and milk in the fridge together with tea and coffee in the cupboard. The beds were comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Loved everything about this area from the eclectic collection of shops in the the town to the majestic Cliffs of Moher. I recommend 'The Old Bakehouse' for a good evening meal, 'Foodies' for a hearty breakfast and the menu of Irish music served up in the local pubs.

  • "What a fabulous location!"

    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 cottage was superb."

    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...

  • "Bluebell Cottage is amazing!"

    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.
