THATCHED ROOF, ELEGANT COTTAGE IN DOOLIN, SPECTACULAR VIEWS, TRANQUIL

County Clare House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms (one queen, two twin), 3 full baths, sleeps 6

This beautiful home in Doolin, Ireland was built in 1998 as a traditional, thatched-roof, Irish cottage and contains all modern amenities.

Each of the bedrooms is en suite, with antique pine furniture. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the two guest rooms each have twin beds. The master bath has a bathtub and shower. The house has wireless access.

The Great Room has a two story fireplace, conveniently gas fired. There is a panoramic conservatory with 180 degree views, including Cecil B. Demille sunsets.

The cottage is well planted with a berm to the west, giving privacy and a profusion of flowering plants.

The view from the house was featured in the September 2007 issue of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. The striking Doonagore Castle, one of the most photographed castles in Ireland, is located immediately down the hill from the cottage and is framed by the conservatory windows. A round tower built c.1350, Doonagore Castle was entirely restored in 1975.

The cottage is surrounded by grazing cattle, lending another level of tranquility to the idyllic setting.

A circular driveway brings guests close to the front door, should there ever be inclement weather! We joke that our favorite occupation is sitting in the conservatory and watching the weather change.

When the cottage was being built, one of the builders suggested naming the cottage. He said we should name it Draiocht, which means a magical, marvelous place and it is.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved it! I used to think the Oregon coast was about the prettiest spot of this earth, but not any more. We had he most beautiful weather - every day - and just loved staying in your beautiful home. And that stove of yours - awesome. I do all the cooking for our gang and that was the first item in your book that I studied. Our whole time in Ireland was great. The Doolin area was a high point - and we really enjoyed our boat trip out to Inis Oirr and the cliffs of moher, and the walking tour of the Burren with Shane. We also went to Dysert O'dea and then I studied your book of the Irish Round Towers. Awesome. What a view from your conservatory windows! Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your home. One day we hope to return.

AMAZING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was absolutely AMAZING!!! My husband and I enjoyed watching the sunset every night. The view is just beautiful. The children loved playing outside and seeing the donkeys and the "Rapunzel" castle.
The cottage is clean, spacious, well decorated, cozy and just lovely. I would highly recommend this property and we would not hesitate to rent it again. You will not be disappointed.

ABSOLUTELY LOVELY COTTAGE IN DOOLIN!

  • 5 of 5
What a treat it was to stay in this cozy cottage overlooking Doolin and the gorgeous surrounding scenery! The cottage was extremely neat and tidy, and very well stocked with everything necessary for our 4 night stay. Many thanks for the great CD collection and stack of board games. The conservatory overlooking the castle is the perfect spot for sipping tea and playing Scrabble.
This location made a perfect home base for exploring the West coast of Ireland. We visited the Cliffs of Moher, from land and sea, explored Doolin's little shops and pubs, and also made a day trip up the coast to Galway and the Connemara. Next time we will also take the ferry from Doolin over to Inisheer and explore more of the Burren. We are already planning on coming back someday!
Both O'Connor's and McGann's pubs in Doolin served up delicious food and wonderful music in the evenings. The nice people at O'Connor's found my Mom's drivers license after it fell from her pocket, and also stored our luggage when it was delivered from the Dublin airport.
Thanks to Elizabeth and the Lynch family for providing such a wonderful cottage to call home for our family vacation in Ireland!

SIMPLY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
The most beautiful home in Doolin. So warm and welcoming with fantastic ocean views. We loved the local pubs, the nearby Cliffs of Moher, but most of all we loved staying in this wonderful home for the week. It made our 40th anniversary truly memorable.

LOVELY HOME IN STUNNING SETTING

  • 5 of 5
We had the great pleasure to stay at this incredible property when we visited Ireland with another couple in August. While we always do our homework to read reviews and check out any listing, we usually approach a vacation spot with a certain amount of apprehension. To our great delight, this place was truly wonderful.
Rather than merely a house, we found a home which was neat and tidy. Charming and quaint, it offered all that we needed for a comfortable stay. The best feature of the house is undoubtedly the conservatory with a breath taking ocean view we will long remember.

We found the location in perfect proximity for wonderful road trips. Elizabeth was kind enough to suggest some of the local highlights which was extremely helpful. The pubs and music in Doolin made for great night life which would have never gotten old. The only drawback of our stay was to not have allowed more time here.

In looking back on our trip, we were touched not only by this amazing experience, but by the generosity on behalf of the Lynch family to share their lovely home.

UNFORGETABLE VIEWS AND VACATION EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented this beautiful house for a week in October and we were amazed by the beauty that surrounded us! The house is decorated so cozy and comfortable. The views from all sides of the house are amazing but its the views from the atrium room that will take your breath away! The beautiful sunsets over the ocean views, the view of Doonagore Castle or just the sight of the neighboring cows in the background; we loved just sitting in this room enjoying our Irish coffees and taking in every moment of beautiful Doolin. The house is so cozy and we really loved having a fireplace to relax near every night. The location of the house is very close to all of Doolin's shops, restaurants, pubs, and attractions. Check-in was so easy & the house provides information and pamphlets on all of the areas attractions, taxi services, grocery shops, restaurants, etc. We loved Doolin and this beautiful house and can't wait to return next year!
