Lovely, quiet, perfectly placed

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage for a month to finish a book I was working on. It has lovely views, is walking distance to the beach and there are great hill walks through the Burren right out your door. Mary, the owner, lives a short walk away, and was a great and thoughtful hostess. There's a typical pub a short walk away, but shop the farmers' market in Ballyvaughn or the supermarket in Ennistimon and cook up a storm in the beautiful new kitchen. There is another cottage next door and a few others on the road, but this a quiet spot, with more cows and horses around than people. The place is brand new, and tastefully appointed. Of course, the weather in this part of Ireland involves a lot of rain, so be prepared for that.

Magical ocean views in all directions-breathe the cool, fresh air! You won't believe this place!

We returned to this magical cottage on the sea 7 years later to find that absolutely nothing had changed in the cottage or county--we were so delighted! I believe our family was one of the first to stay in this brand new cottage then, and the home has been exceptionally maintained. Our family of 5 was so comfortable in this cottage and very happy to again escape south Florida's hot summer. Our 6 month old daughter is now 7 1/2, and we now have 5 and 3 year old daughters, too. The ocean and mountain views and sunsets are like none we have ever experienced--brilliant blue ocean, black rocky coast, sandy Fanore beach with surf school, beautiful rainbows, Burren rocky hills, sultry orange/red/purple sunsets (even more magnificent than Key West's.) The cottage is just above the main road which hardly has any traffic, really. For the first time we were able to show the girls the Milky Way. We had a family of 3 cows and 2 calves across the street, had lots of sheep in the town, ponies and horses. We took plenty of walks down to the pub, grocery store, and restaurant, and hikes up the hills in the cool weather. We visited the Cliffs of Moher Children's Farm (15minute drive), visited a sheep farm in Mayo County (Killary Sheep Farm in the Connemara Mountinains), visited plenty of castles, old cemeteries and church ruins. We were never bored in our 2 week stay. We were happy to find RTE Lyric classical Irish music/classical station still playing. Mary, Gus, and David, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us. We will be back sooner this time!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I read all these wonderful reviews of the Fanore cottage prior to our trip, and even so, the home exceeded all our expectations!! The view was just stunning, and it was so amazing to wake up to the sound of the waves on the rocks below. We were absolutely enchanted. Mary and Gus, the owners of the property, happened to be in the country and staying in their home next door. They were fabulous hosts - so very kind and generous - it was a delight to meet them. Staying in this lovely home made our first trip to Ireland all that more special and memorable. We hope to be back!

"Class Is Permanent"

"Class Is Permanent"
  • 5 of 5
The retired Alex Ferguson (Manchester United) is credited with the phrase "Form is Temporary, Class is Permanent", an analogy which sums up Deirdre's cottage, Fanore, West Clare & the Burren.

Having stocked up my annual leave days & almost year after our first trip to Fanore, the family & I returned again to West Clare for a 3 week stay. Travelling down from Dublin on the hottest day of the year, we were glad to arrive to a welcome sea breeze & find Deirdre's cottage as well kept as we had experienced the summer before.

Little had changed in this unspoiled remote part of Ireland in the preceding 12 months. The cottage was immaculate (kept in all its finery by Mary, who doubles up as a walking guide for all the best highways & byways in the Burren), Black Head & Slieve Elva shimmering in the afternoon sun, the golden sand of Fanore beach, the Aran Islands in full view, the 12 pins of Connemara overlooking Carraroe on the other side of Galway Bay & of course, the blue wall of O'Donohoe's pub beckoning you to its door. Ah yes, it was good to be back in Fanore.

The next 3 weeks were perfect. The weather co-operated with not too many rain showers & when the rain came, it passed just as quick. The beach became our daily destination with bucket, spade and now the kids are getting older, body boards to catch the perfect wave. Heaven!

This year, we explored lots more of the Burren & its walking treks. I attempted the 5-6 hour Black Head Loop Walk, but retired after 4 hours, calling HQ for a ride home from the majestic Caha Valley river road. There's always next year! Our 8 year old walked the hill road to Balliny & back 4 times in a week - on one occasion I went a little further continuing on over the green road towards Doolin & came down a steep windy road coming back to the Coast Road at Crumlin lodge. Fantastic views all the way. With stamina built up, our 8 year old took on the BallyVaughan Wood Loop, while our 4 year old took on the buggy friendly Carran loop in the heart of the Burren!

Having done Doolin Cave last year, we took in Ailwee Cave & birds of prey show. A great way to spend a day & a great credit to Clare Tourism.

No trip to Fanore is complete without a session or 2 (or 3!) in O'Donohoe's during GAA season. With Clare going head to head with neighbours, Galway, the atmosphere was electric & the craic 90! Thanks to Pat & Tricia, the proprietors, who Welcome ALL from near & far.

A gr8 property to rent & as Arnie says "I'll be back!"

Summer Memories

  • 5 of 5
This is my 1st review of any holiday home so it says a lot for the house when I feel compelled to pen something – my hope is that I can do the house and owners as it really exceeded our expectations on all fronts. My family and I stayed in this wonderful holiday home in Fanore, Co. Clare for almost 2 weeks in August 2012. We generally stay in holiday homes in Ireland during the summer months as we find it that bit easier with young children and we were not disappointed by what we found and saw as we opened the front door of this fabulous house. Our kids (3 and 8 years) are still talking about the house and Fanore 7-8 weeks after.
On arrival we were delighted to be greeted with fresh home made brown bread, butter, jam and fresh milk and some jelly beans for the kids - this was a wonderful touch that we have not experienced in other homes we have rented for vacation. On this note the caretakers were extremely helpful and friendly (yet not intrusive) and a delight to meet.
The house was more than we had expected. The upstairs loft was perfect sleeping quarters for the kids and became a den area on other occasions. The master bedroom was very comfortable and beautifully designed and comparable to a luxury hotel suite – if only our own bedroom in Dublin was such! The living areas didn’t disappoint either. The family kitchen was amply stocked with all mod cons, delph, cutlery, etc. Gordon Ramsey would have been at home in the kitchen with its fabulous gas stove and cooker. If you have friends or family nearby, the kitchen and dining room can easily cater for a large gathering.
The house itself is in a wonderful location. The shop, post office, pub and coffee shop are a short stroll away, while the beach is a 2-3 minute spin in the car. It’s so close to the beach you can return with ease for that forgotten bucket or spade or retreat to the house when famished for lunch. The Burren is essentially on your doorstep, Doolin cave 10 minutes drive, boats to the Aran Islands (from Doolin pier) 20-25 minutes away by car, the scenic Caha valley and its walking route passing the front door, fishing from the cliffs nearby, Fanore beach and much more.
Lastly, the views from every room are truly magnificent and show Clare, the Burren and Fanore in all their glory. Idyllic.
We would have no hesitation recommending the house to family or friends – the only issue is we intend to return and the more people that know the harder it will be to secure a booking. 10 out of 10.

Extraordinary setting above the sea

  • 5 of 5
The cottage lived up to all of the great reviews previously submitted. Immaculately clean, spacious, very well stocked kitchen (one of the few places we've stayed that had sharp knives!), very comfortable. The coast along Fanore is a beautiful location with many things to do and see. Wonderful walking trails, trips to the Aran Islands and even a day trip to Connemara for a hike up Diamond Hill in the National Park. Dave, the owner, was very helpful in providing information, as was Mary. This was our first trip to Ireland and we've left with terrific memories.
