    Sykes cottages were very helpful, particularly as I originally made a mistake with this booking. They fixed the problems quickly and easily. The host (Peter) was very easy to contact, and the location was perfect - very out of the way and yet within driving distance to necessary places. I had the most restful few days of my year in this cottage, and I wanted to stay longer. Every accommodation was made for my comfort - Peter even lent me his boots for walking - tea and coffee were there on arrival, the open fire was lovely, and the family (including Lorraine and little Eimear) were so welcoming. The surrounding area was beautiful and peaceful. The roads can get quite tiny and dark so I'd recommend caution, but the views at every point were awesome. I took Peter's advice in making all my excursion plans, and he's well worth paying attention to :) please do the drive around loop head. It was the best day of my trip.

The property

A charming, cosy cottage in Kilmurry McMahon, just under four miles from Killimer on the shore of the Shannon Estuary, and a short drive from the coastal town of Kilrush.

The cottage is situated in the countryside, surrounded by farmland with grazing animals and the owners live on site and are only too happy to share their extensive knowledge of County Clare with their guests.

The cottage is a wonderful holiday retreat for couples, with one double bedroom and a shower room, plus an open plan living area with kitchen, a dining area for two and a sitting area with an open fire.

After walking all day, you can sit out in the garden to the front of the cottage and share a bottle of wine, or curl up together by the fire when the weather is chilly.

The large garden at the front of the cottage is shared, and there is also a shared garden and orchard at the back where you can collect apples.

Although Garden View is in County Clare, a 20-minute ferry trip across the Shannon Estuary from Killimer means it is also a wonderful holiday destination or those interested in uncovering the delights of County Kerry too.

Europe’s largest pod of bottlenose dolphins call the estuary home and you can take boat trips out onto the water to try and catch a glimpse of them!

Across the estuary, play the Ballybunion links course and enjoy glorious views of the sea and the town’s sandy beach.

The course is rated one of the world’s top courses and will certainly make golf enthusiasts swoon!

Spend a day on the beautiful, Blue Flag beach at Kilkee, with a picnic and a paddle in the sea.

Drive the coastal route around the Loop Head Peninsula, and enjoy soaking up the stunning ocean vistas from its well-known lighthouse.

This corner of Ireland is beautiful, and a lovely place to escape for a romantic break with your loved one.

The coastal town of Kilrush is located near the mouth of the River Shannon in the south-west of County Clare. An historic town, one of the listed Heritage Towns of Ireland, Kilrush was once an important Shannon port and is today home to a modern Marina and Heritage Centre. Take a boat trip from the marina and explore the lovely waters of the Shannon Estuary, with its many picturesque riverside towns and villages and resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins! Enjoy a drive along the Wild Atlantic Way, the longest defined coastal touring route in the world, which goes through Kilrush. Alternatively, take a ferry to nearby Scattery Island, a 6th century monastic island featuring the ruins of several churches and a unique 10th century round tower. Kilrush offers supermarkets, traditional pubs, restaurants and an excellent 18 hole golf course, and golfers will also enjoy the Greg Norman designed golf links at Doonbeg, within easy reach. Just 9 miles away is the seaside resort of Kilkee, which boasts a horse-shoe bay, 18-hole golf course, restaurants, pubs, cafes and good walking routes, and is the starting point for the Loop Head Drive along the rugged Atlantic coastline, offering wonderful coastal scenery.
