  • "We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the owner’s speedy response on the one occasion when we needed to contact him."

    Some more cutlery, dishes for cooking and serving food, a couple of Pyrex jugs and a few more wine glasses would be good additions in the kitchen.

  • "The location was superb for visiting west of Ireland."

    It’s real traditional Ireland at its best and the owner was lovely and accommodating after an initial plumbing problem. A few things I would add would be a bbq and a few extra utensils and the skylight in one of the bedrooms needs a blind or you will be up early

  • "I enjoyed my week in The Cottage very much."

    It met all my needs & like someone else has said, I loved seeing the horses every morning as I ate breakfast. Joe was very helpful & unlike another house that I have stayed in recently, wi-fi and electricity were included in the cost so there were no nasty surprises at the end of the week. Also loved that my furry friend was made welcome too.

  • "We arrived at the cottage between 6+7 pm we met the owner Joe Morrisey and he showed us around and explained what we needed to know."

    First thing to greet us was the musty smell in the property and it was very old fashioned as we went around the property sorting who went where as there were 6 of us one in particular my son who suffers with a serious respiratory condition we had to get in and clean down surfaces door handles we were all to touch not a good start then we realised we were sharing the property with any number of creepy crawlies when we opened windows some of the handle pieces fell off. The property definitely did not meet our expectations there was only one good thing we could say about the property and that is its location ideal for the touring around Clare we planned to do. We took photos to show how bad the house was i can forward them on privately. We definitely would not recommend this property unless it underwent some work and major cleaning. We feel some of this falls on your company to check these properties during a season for cleanliness it is the worse property we stayed in.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry this property did not meet up to your expectations and that you found some issues. The owner is upset you did not make him aware of any concerns during your stay as they could have easily been addressed. He has not noticed any musty smell and has not had any smell reported since or prior to your stay. He has seen your pictures of a few spiders but they are difficult to control at this time of year. We do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise and thanks again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is clean, very spacious and well equipped."

    There are beautiful views of the sea and countryside from the garden and living room. We visited the Cliffs of Moher, Loop head peninsula, took a trip to the Aran Islands,bathed on Fanore beach, went spotting dolphins in the Shannon estuary, visited many parts of the Burren,took a trip to Limerick and another to Galway where we saw a wonderful show of traditional Irish music and dancing. Joe is a very friendly and helpful host. Our holiday was great, I would 100% recommend staying here.

  • "The owner, Pat Morrissey could not have been nicer."

    He even provided basic foods and drinks for us on our late arrival (tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, etc.). The cottage suited our needs perfectly - 5 adults and 2 little children. Very peaceful and quiet on small side road with nice panoramic views of the Atlantic Ovean and farm fields all around us.

  • "The cottage was perfect for our purposes."

    We wanted a base in Co. Clare from where we could explore the rest of the county. It was the perfect location. The host couldn't do enough for us. I highly recommend this cottage for hire. Thanks!

  • "This is a great house for a big group."

    Plenty of space for everyone. Also a good location, easy access to the many wonderful attractions of Clare. Joe, the owner could not be more helpful.

  • "A large property - great for not feeling on top of each other."

    Ideal for a large group of golfers wanting to explore nearby courses. Very quite, inland, rural environment - a car is essential for reaching the nearest shop, bar or beach. Lovely waking up to the gentle mooing of cows in nearby fields / or to see the horses in the stables next door. Joe the owner is lovely, warm and welcoming. A care package of essential food stuffs was left waiting for us so there was no frantic rush to find the nearest open shop. Great to arrive at a property that actually has toilet roll in situ as opposed to some properties who give no thought to their guests nor have a desire for repeat custom.

The property

This family-friendly detached cottage is situated in the heart of the countryside, just over a mile from the seaside village of Quilty, on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, County Clare.

This delightful cottage provides a home-from-home for families and groups of friends, wishing to discover and explore this scenic region.

This attractive cottage boasts five comfortable bedrooms, with two double bedrooms on the ground floor and one of the first floor double bedrooms has an en-suite shower.

There is also a single bedroom and two family shower rooms, again, one on the ground floor.

There is a well-equipped fitted kitchen where you can cook up a storm for your loved ones to enjoy in the separate dining room, which is complemented by a solid fuel stove.

After wining and dining, you can retire to the cosy sitting room and curl up in front of the open fire.

There is an enclosed private garden to the rear of the property where the children can play safely, as you relax with a refreshing drink, planning the next day’s activities.

The coastal village of Quilty lies on the main road from Milltown Malbay to Kilrush and is perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, where you can watch the waves crashing against the shore.

The village is home to a local shop and pub and is just a short drive from the popular town of Milltown Malbay home to the Willie Clancy Festival, which showcases some of the finest live traditional music in the county.

The region is scattered with sandy beaches, seaside golf courses and breathtaking seascapes and some of the most famous attractions in the area, which include the majestic Cliffs of Moher, Doolin Cave, Trump International Golf Links, The Loop Head Peninsula and the Burren.

From Quilty, the car ferry at Killimer is also within easy reach and will take you across to County Kerry.

A wonderful touring base for you and your family.

About the location


Miltown Malbay 3.6 miles; Spanish Point 2.8 miles; Lahinch 11 miles.

Quilty is an attractive seaside resort with local charm, providing a seafood restaurant, a pub, a supermarket and sea fishing. The nearby pretty town of Miltown Malbay is located close to the Atlantic coast in County Clare, and is only an hour from Shannon Airport. Famed for its traditional Irish music, it is home to the Willie Clancy music festival, which is held in July, however visitors will find fabulous live music in many pubs and bars whatever the time of year. Miltown Malbay is close to some excellent beach resorts including Spanish Point and Doonbeg, both of which are well worth a visit for their relaxed vibe and great surf. The Burren National Park to the north of the town is a mecca for walkers and nature lovers with its unique geological landscapes and rich colourful wildflowers, and to the south you will find the striking 'Cliffs of Moher', which rise majestically out of the ocean and are best appreciated from one of many boat trips departing nearby.
