A fantastic detached cottage, outside Ennistymon and Lahinch in County Clare.
This lovely, bright cottage makes an excellent base for a small group of friends or family to come together and discover County Clare.
Set over two floors, you enter the property on the top floor into the open plan living area, which extends back to a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, perfect for keeping everyone together while a scrumptious meal is being prepared.
With the sun out, why not take the plates out to the balcony area, which boasts beautiful views of the rolling countryside, and talk about the day’s high points over dinner in the fresh Irish air?
Children can play safely in the enclosed patio at the back of the cottage, which also comes with half an acre of land where you can walk the dog.
As the day draws to an end, relax in the front garden and enjoy a well-earned drink while soaking up the last rays of the day.
Afterwards, head back inside to the sitting area where you can relax and put your feet up in front of the woodburning stove.
There are two comfortable bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one on the lower ground floor with an en-suite shower, and in the sitting room there is a day bed, with two good-quality single mattresses, which pulls out to offer flexibility for your sleeping arrangements.
The surrounding area provides you with great scenery should you fancy a countryside stroll, or hop into the car and take yourself to Lahinch beach to dip your toes in the Atlantic.
Head to Ennistymon or Lahinch, where you will find a superb selection of shops, restaurants and pubs for you to sample, many with local Irish music being played.
Alternatively, if you wish to venture a little further, visit the Cliffs of Moher, home to spectacular views and somewhere that you must visit while in the area, or the music village of Doolin, where locals are sure to give you a night to remember.
A lovely property to be booked immediately to avoid disappointment.
