  • "It is perfect : a stunning view, a marvellous house and a so nice host!"

    The location is very good, between Kilrush and Kilkee (we have appreciate a lot the O'Maras Pub at Kilkee!). The house is very nice, bedrooms are beautiful and beds are very good, the kitchen has a view... you will enjoy to wash the dishes! And Mary, our host, is too nice : we found in the house enough to make the first breakfast and she brought us eggs of her farm! We surely will return in this house, and probably for a week.

  • "The cottage was lovingly restored with many original features retained or restored."

    It was decorated very tastefully and there were lots of nice serving dishes and glasses so we entertained friends one evening. There was a lovely relaxing drawing room with an open fire and the host provided fuel for same. This cottage is great for children as a field out front but without road access to play games and bug hunt! A concrete yard in the back ideal for scooting. The hens and cows also provided more entertainment! As it rained a few days while we were there we were very lucky to have such a nice space to play board games/cards and prepare meals. The hosts were wonderful checked into make sure we had everything we needed, recommended places for swimming and dinner out. They also dropped over homemade brown bread and lemon drizzle cake straight from the oven which was a delight! I would highly recommend this cottage if you want somewhere very peaceful in nature yet only an 8 min drive from hustle and bustle of Kilkee and Kilrush. We will definitely revisit.

  • "Lovely location with a nice home from home feeling."

    Plus the Wild Atlantic Way that never fails to impress just down the road. Hope to return in the summer.
