    “Lovely Location”
    The cottage was situated in a lovely location on the coast.
    The cottage was situated in a lovely location on the coast. The cottage was jouined to a bigger property and the only downside to that was that there was quite a bit of noise, although not enough to spoil our visit. We really did enjoy our stay and the owners of the cottage were very helpful in guiding us to the cottage. We would certainly return to this location if we are ever in County Clare agin

The property

A cosy ground floor apartment attached to a larger cottage in 5 acres of grounds, on the shores of Galway Bay, close to New Quay in the beautiful Burren region of County Clare.

This lovely self-catering New Quay apartment is an ideal choice for a couple seeking a practical and convenient base to explore this fascinating area.

The interior of the New Quay apartment is welcoming, while the outside space is just made for relaxing on a warm afternoon, taking in the smashing sea views as you dine alfresco on delicious local treats.

Take a stroll from your New Quay self-catering apartment down to Flaggy Shore, made famous by Seamus Heaney and offering up superb inspiration for photographers, artists and nature lovers.

Or, visit Linnane's Lobster Bar or indulge in home-made ice cream at the Linnalla Ice Cream Parlour and Dessert House for a true taste of Irish indulgence.
