    “Hillcrest Haven is a beautiful spacious bungalow which is equipped with all facilities required for a week away.”

    The main living room has fantastic panoramic views and the location is quiet and peaceful, with the bungalow situated at the top of a hill. In relation to the area there is plenty to do with Craggy Island being less than 10 miles away which is well worth a visit as is Bunratty Castle and of course the Cliffs of Moher. There is an hour boat ride from Doolin to the cliffs which only costs 15 Euros which is well worth it. The Cliffs from above should also be visited. There are a few pubs in the ...

    The main living room has fantastic panoramic views and the location is quiet and peaceful, with the bungalow situated at the top of a hill. In relation to the area there is plenty to do with Craggy Island being less than 10 miles away which is well worth a visit as is Bunratty Castle and of course the Cliffs of Moher. There is an hour boat ride from Doolin to the cliffs which only costs 15 Euros which is well worth it. The Cliffs from above should also be visited. There are a few pubs in the village worth visiting in the evening and not too far a walk from the top of the hill down to the village. Near the bungalow are various handmade painted cards referred to a pony and donkey farm. Our eldest girl who is 8 wanted to visit so we set off and reached a bungalow pointing to the farm. We were going to turn back as it didn't look up to much at all but relented and glad we did as after being shown the donkeys and ponies we were led inside to the garage by the owner, Willie Daly, who is the matchmaker for the local singles festival at Lisdoonvarna. He showed us a video and regaled us with his tales which were brilliant. A really interesting man to talk to and all for 5 Euros for us all. We bought his book as well for 10 Euros and this is well worth reading. Great holiday and would definitely return to Hillcrest Haven again - thoroughly recommended.

A truly magical part of Ireland that is not to be missed.
