Ideal Irish Escape!

  • 5 of 5
After an exhaustive search for a vacation rental in Ireland, we decided upon this spectacular cottage. The location and property exceeded our expectations in every way. The house itself is impeccable; it is spotless, beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable, and grand. Our vacation consisted of two couples, but we plan on returning one day with our families. The layout of the house lends itself to privacy as well as large gatherings. The location turned out to be ideal as well. Doonbeg is a delightful village, central to all of County Claire. Perhaps best of all, is the warm and delightful hospitality of the O'Deas. We wouldn't change a thing and will certainly return!

Clare coastline, the vibrancy of traditional Irish drama and music festivals Doonbeg (Irish: Dúnbeag, meaning 'Small Fort') is steeped in heritage, surrounded by amenities and is a natural gateway to explore the West Coast of Ireland.

The West Coast of Ireland

The West Coast exudes a romance like nowhere else in Ireland. It boasts an unsurpassable beauty and wild drama that is inextricably linked to the region’s culture, traditions and people. From the towering sea cliffs in Donegal and Clare, which are mercilessly beaten by the Atlantic Ocean, to the serene beauty of the Killarney National Park and the Beara Way. Ablaze with colour, the West Coast offers a chance to really get away from it all, to stand on the edge and face nature in all its glory. Here, you can climb mountains, travel to remote islands, explore quiet bays or discover ancient limestone landscapes. Most important, though, in the West Coast you can experience authentically Irish culture and traditions, from the vibrant Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) region and its lively céilÍs (Irish dancing) to the multitude of festivals that celebrate the history and heritage of this fascinating region. This is also a place where relaxation comes easily.

Whatever you want to do, you can do it in the West Coast.
