  • "Lovely cottage, and a lovely spot of Co Clare, just 3km from the beach."

    It would have helped to have some documentation in the flat. Some leaflets/maps about the area ... but even more important, to have instructions for the use of the downstairs shower (a bit idiosyncratic, and even after calling the owner and discussing, still it took time to work it out). Having this available written down would save the owner some phone calls. We think the dishwasher doesn't work. Even after advice over the phone, we couldn't succeed (its an old one, and the latch wasn't clicking shut). And for these occasions good to have some scrubbers for washing by hand. By the way, we loved the place! I will recommend it to family, The 4 double bedrooms, and the spacious living area, make it a great choice ... even if the weather was terrible, would have still been a great trip. But the little things I mention would make it better.

  • "The water pump was quite annoying if you had to use the bathroom at night."

    easy to follow directions to the site, the owner was so helpful and left us cake and tea and even lit the fire for our arrival. left spare keys as we were a large group. we are a group of 6 adults away for a long weekend and there was so much space. added extras in the way of a washing machine and tumble dryer! would highly recommend

  • "Lovely accommodation - clean and set out well."

    Warmed up quickly with fire /heating as turned up during a cold spell. Person met us promptly to let us in just when we phoned her so that worked out well as it was a long journey. Short distance to Kilkee and riding stables. We couldn’t find lighters to light the fire til the next day so we had to go to shops straight after arriving but that’s not anyone’s fault - it’s just we weren’t prepared for the cold spell. Would definitely stay again.

  • "The heat did not work upstairs for almost 4 days (arrived on Saturday and fixed on Tuesday afternoon)."

    Michael was brilliant and kept bringing around turf and logs for the fire but honestly, why wasn't this checked before we arrived? The tablecloth had crumbs and butter on it (as did the placemats), the extractor fan/kitchen light didn't work, the cold tap on the sink in the downstairs bathroom didn't work, 3 of the cooking pots were rusty and unuseable, the DVD selection was poor (and this mattered as their is no internet -- which was fine and what we were expecting), the sitting room desperately needed a coffee table and some side tables and lamps (we brought a few lamps in from the bedrooms). In the original description of the house, a hot tub was advertised but I noticed after I made an enquiry if there was an actual hot tub, that was taken down. There was a Jacuzzi bath in the en suite but the Jacuzzi part didn't work and since the heating was off upstairs where the master bedroom was, it was too cold to use that bathroom (plus no hot water upstairs. We did enjoy the open layout of the house, the lovely light, the close location to Kilkee and Kilrush but honestly, some one needs to vet the cottage properly before you charge people money to stay there.

The property

Kilkee 4 miles.

Located just four miles from the popular seaside town of Kilkee in County Clare, is this bright and airy detached cottage.

Lovingly decorated throughout, this charming cottage is ideal for families and groups of friends wishing to spend time together in this extremely scenic county.

Lending its name ‘Long Cottage’ from the layout, guests can enjoy a spacious open plan living area complete with a well-equipped, fitted kitchen, dining area and comfy sitting area, all complemented by a multi-fuel stove for extra warmth and convenience during your stay.

There are also four peaceful and relaxing bedrooms where you can enjoy a superb night’s sleep, one of which has the added benefit of an en-suite bathroom.

This delightful holiday home is surrounded by rolling hills and fields and there are plenty of quiet rural roads to explore either on foot or by bike.

Also just over a mile away from the property is the lovely, secluded Glasheen Beach, and four miles away is the coastal town of Kilkee, which is home to a vast stretch of sandy beach, along with traditional seafood restaurants and charming pubs.

Children will adore the amusements and local Waterworld, with its indoor water attractions, not to mention the ice cream shops!

Why not take an exhilarating clifftop stroll and admire the breathtaking seascapes?

It will most definitely blow away any cobwebs!

Kilkee lies at the mouth of the Loop Head Peninsula which boasts glorious coastlines and the Loop Head Lighthouse – next stop, America!

Nearby attractions include dolphin spotting near Carrigaholt, golf courses at Trump International at Doonbeg and Lahinch, the majestic Cliffs of Moher, and superb access to County Kerry via the car Ferry at Killimer.

A wonderful base for touring all that the south west has to offer.

About the location


Kilrush 8 miles.

Kilkee is a charming seaside town on the western coast of County Clare overlooking the mile-long horseshoe bay, with a gently sloping safe and sandy Blue Flag beach that is protected from the Atlantic weather by the Duggerna Reef, which stretches across the mouth of the bay. Kilkee has a well deserved reputation as the safest bathing place in Ireland with bathing and swimming enjoyed at all stages of the tide. The Kilkee Surf School runs surf camps for children aged 9 to 16 at Kilkee and Doughmore beaches every week of the summer holidays or why not try Waterworld? A popular all-weather facility, Waterworld has a range of indoor water attractions including a bubble pool, shower geysers, the 'lazy river ride' and a 61m crystal tower slide, and the Thalassotherapy Centre which offers a variety of sea based therapies. The 18-hole championship golf course is situated on the road towards George's Head and stretches along the spectacular cliffs. There are also numerous walks with cliff scenery that can only be described as spectacular. Kilkee has a variety of cafes and restaurants specialising in locally caught fish and shellfish, while the pubs and lounge bars have regular music competitions, traditional Irish nights, cabaret, dancing and pub theatre. Dolphin watching can be enjoyed at nearby Carrigaholt, while activities including sailing, scuba diving, birdwatching and horse riding are available in the area. Something for everyone!
