  • "Our stay at Silver Birch was very comfortable."

    We have rented other properties over the last 3 years and we were very concern as to what we would get when we arrived as previous properties (cleaning materials at hand0 they have been awful, but this was a great surprise on our arrival. To find a clean, tidy and the same as on the web site. We would highly recommend this to our family and friends.

    If you appreciate quiet and wildlife it's for you. But it has easy access to the Wild Atlantic coast and everything it has to offer. Would definitely recommend it.

  • "We had a fantastic week staying at Silver Birch."

    The house was spotless on arrival and Thomas the owner extremely helpful and accommodating. We arrived earlier than the stated check-in time and the house was ready for us and Thomas had provided milk and apple tart so we could have a much needed cup of tea! The house itself was perfect for us; it has everything you need with plenty of space for a family. We particularly liked the safe, large and clean garden for our young children and the icing on the cake was the brilliant playroom stocked with toys to keep them entertained! The washing machine was also a major bonus for us. Locally there is a fabulous beach about 5ish mins drive away plus Kilrush is not far if you need to go to the shops. This was a fantastic place to stay for an amazing family week in Co Clare - many thanks!

  • "The house was in an ideal location and good base for travelling around as it was close to a lot of places."

    Good beaches a few minutes away, close enough to local shops and nearby Kilrush has everything you need. The house itself was deceptively bigger than it looked in the pictures, and the playroom was a godsend! The private garden and decking area provided a few great evenings! Thomas was lovely, and very helpful and the little extra's on arrival were unexpected and very appreciated. Definitely a house we would come back to!

    Very friendly and helpful host. Cows passing by in road between 8 and 9 and around 17:00 so be prepared to wait at those times of day. Approx 1 mile to main road and fairly bumpy tarmac single lane. Very quiet.

    It is fully equipped and so comfortable. Although rural, it was a perfect base to discover all of Co Clare. If I were visiting Co Clare again, this is the home that I would return to. A home from home and the owner was very helpful. A lovely touch of having milk & some treats on arrival.
