Overview

County Clare House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, living room with piano, separate kitchen, sleeps 5

Fanore Lodge is nestled between the sea and Slieve Elva, set amid the wonders of Burren flora and its unique geology, offering views of the sea and the long sandy beach, three minutes from Fanore Lodge. There is a local surf school operating from the beach. The Caher River runs by the door, and the soothing sounds of water on rock can be heard from the house. Fanore Lodge is at the foot of the Caher Valley Nature Reserve. The Caher Valley and Caher River probably take their names from the fact that there are so many ring forts or cahers in the immediate vicinity. The house is ideally situated at the starting point of many hiking routes.

The house is protected as a historical structure and has been sympathetically and attractively furnished and decorated according to the period in which it was built. The owner is fond of art and there are paintings and prints of well known artists throughout the house and many images of the Burren.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We SO enjoyed our time at Fanore. We spent one day just driving through the Burren, exploring, and another day riding the ferry out to Inis Oirr and seeing the Cliffs from above and below. I also enjoyed a little walk up along the road by the lodge. It was all so breathtaking. There is room for the soul in that place, and I miss it already! I would sincerely love to come again, and I would certainly choose Fanore again!

Thanks for everything!

Ein liebevoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt in Fanore Lodge! Alles ist mit so viel Liebe fürs Detail hergerichtet und gestaltet. Regionale Köstlichkeiten erwarteten uns in der Küche. Für alles war gesorgt und wir haben es sehr genossen.
Direkt hinter dem Haus ist ein Bach, in dem unser 7 jähriger Sohn Stunden verbracht hat. Einfach herrlich und unbedingt zu empfehlen.

great house in the most beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5
With all the positve reviews we had high expectations and all were met - and topped. We had a very warm wellcome from Geraldine and fell in love with the house and its interiors at once and it did not abate.
All through our week in Fanore we had fine weather. Until the middle afternoon we went hiking (you can start for several destiations from the house, no need for a car) or sightseeing (i.e. to the Cliffs of Moher) and afterwards we had a swim in the ocean. The children were very happy with the bodyboards. There were 3 provided for our 3 children. Still, with all the available good books, CDs, DVDs and games we were almost sorry that there was no heavy rain or storm which would have bound us to the house.
Yes, we had a perfect vacation and would have very much loved to stay longer. We would highy recommend this property.

Beautifully decorated, stunning views of the sea

  • 5 of 5
Fanore lodge is a beautifully decorated house with stunning views of the surrounding burren landscape and the wild Atlantic coast.
It is very close to Fanore beach and not too far away from the local pub where you can hear some great trad. sessions whilst enjoying a pint of guinness and delicious fresh fish and chips. Yum!

The house has everything you could possibly need - beach towels, buckets and spades, body boards for doing a bit of surfing! A fantastic gas barbecue, great big outdoor table, lots of candles, comfy couches in the sitting room, open fire, tonnes of books, fully equipped kitchen (even everything you need for baking a cake!), great picnic basket for taking to the beach - it has everything!
The house is also perfectly located for setting off on some of the burren walks.

Geraldine makes you feel very welcome with a lovely bit of smoked salmon waiting for you in the fridge, fresh brown soda bread, a pot of jam, milk, butter and some lovely teas.

We'll definitely be thinking of coming back again.

Peaceful and Serenity in Historical Burren Home

  • 5 of 5
Just a quick note to let you know how much we all enjoyed our stay at Fanore Lodge, "The Old Barracks".

There are so many special moments, but in particular sitting outside in the white chairs enjoying the beautiful mornings, reading there and having good conversation, our afternoon teas and the sunsets. Our dinners when Kim cooked such great meals in the kitchen. I don't know why but somehow they tasted so much better in Ireland in your kitchen! The evenings in the parlor with the great turf fires, my son and his friend playing the piano together in between Van Morrison on the stereo. And the house lit up so beautifully at night with the candles and the hurricane lanterns in the windows. And croquet in the side yard. Walking to mass on Sunday morning. All such special memories!!! Thank you again.

We hope to see you again.

Fabulous Fanore Lodge

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely house, beautifully furnished. We were made feel welcome and we had a great holiday, relaxing and exploring the Burren. I'd recommend Fanore Lodge for anyone who wants a quiet holiday in magnificent surroundings.

Over and Above Expectations

  • 5 of 5
Fanore Lodge was a wonderful place to spend a week. The house is lovely with views of the sea and Aran islands in one direction and of the Burren's stony hillside in another. Geraldine is a generous and gracious host, providing everything needed for a delightful experience. The kitchen was filled with delicious food: smoked salmon, local cheese, fresh eggs and orange juice, bread, scones and local butter. The living room with sofas and a fireplace is a delight, especially on a rainy night. The walls of the house are filled with scenes of the Burren by local artists, and bookcases are filled with excellent recent fiction, and every possible guide book and history of the area. I can't imagine a better location, with walking trails right outside, near interesting towns. Geraldine's recommendations for restaurants, walks, and sights were another gift. The house was spotless, in excellent condition and the beds are very comfortable. We hiked every day, and visited tombs, forts, sacred wells. The weather cooperated and we were able to visit the Aran Islands for a day of biking. It was a perfect week. I recommend Fanore Lodge with enthusiasm!

Stunning location in the heart of the Burren, a karst landscape of great natural beauty, richly endowed with rare botanical specimens including several varieties of wild orchids. Situated adjacent to the Caher Nature Reserve and the Burren National Park.

Fanore Lodge is nestled between Slieve Elva and the golden sandy beach of Fanore, (500 yards), which is safe for bathing and has a local surf school and Life Guards during summer months. There is a wide range of activities on the door step including sea angling at Blackhead, coastal and hill walking on marked green roads, loop walks, horseriding, golfing and cycling.This region is also full of opportunities for potholers as the area has a extensive network of underground caves.

Home to poets and artists, this inspirational landscape is rich in antiquities including prehistoric settlement and burial sites such as dolmens, cairns and ring forts as well as ruins of medieval monastic sites.

'The Caher Valley and Caher River probably take their names from the fact that there are so many ring forts or cahers in the immediate vicinity. Further up the valley, past the bridge, is a fulacht fiadh or cooking place to the south of the road.

Close to award winning sea food restaurants. North Clare is famous for its traditional music and many of the local pubs feature live music. Only a 15 minute drive to Doolin, renowned for Irish music. The Cliffs of Moher, one of the most popular Irish tourist attractions is also only 20 minutes away. The Aran Islands are a short cruise from Doolin and ferries run several times a day.

Fanore Lodge is a one hour drive to Galway; and during the summer months a fast speed ferry operates from Ballyvaughan to Galway.

Coole Park, to which WB Yeats was a frequent visitor, is 45 minutes drive and Doolin and Ailwee caves are just 20 minutes away.

Lahinch 18 Hole Championship Links Golf course is 30 minutes drive. Doonbeg, a Greg Norman Golf Course, European Golf Course of the year 2010, is only an hours drive away.
