|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
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.

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!
The property was absolutely gorgeous and just like the photos. Geraldine also was there to greet us and give us a tour of the house and show us everything in it we might need. She also had a cheat sheet printed in case we forgot how to adjust the water heater or anything. We felt very taken care of but not at all bogged down by rules. The food in her welcome package was outstanding, beside the essentials she also gave us salmon, yogurt, cheese and a bottle of champagne to celebrate our very special stay. I absolutely loved waking up there every morning and getting to play the beautiful piano, it made me feel so at home. Not to mention the entire area is just breathtaking! The only hard part was the fact that we had to leave eventually; we would have stayed forever if we could!
This is a wonderful old house – lots of character and love in it plus the best selection of books to wallow with that I’ve seen outside a library! Also the best welcome I’ve ever experienced in a rented holiday place; fire lit, kettle on, warm conversation. Thank you Geraldine!
The countryside surrounding this cottage is so peaceful and relaxing! The cottage itself has the charms of an earlier time but modern amenities. The renter was extremely accommodating and even stocked the refrigerator with a few essentials to make our arrival even nicer. Would highly recommend!
Wat een bijzonder warm ontvangst van de eigenaresse die al heeft gezorgd voor ook letterlijk een warm huis en lekkernijen. Ook de whiskey hoorde erbij als start van de vakantie als soort van traditie. Erg leuk!
Het huis vonden wij bijzonder sfeervol, compleet en alles is aanwezig. Bijzonder gezellige keuken, woonkamer en slaapkamers. Allemaal in een passende stijl waarover is nagedacht. Als je gaat vliegen hoef je praktisch alleen kleren mee te nemen. Rest is grotendeels aanwezig. Ook tijdens het verblijf is eigenaresse zeer behulpzaam.
Aanrader voor mensen die deze oude stijlvolle woningen kunnen waarderen. Overigens, wat mij betreft, aanrader voor iedereen!!!
Highly recommend this property. Geraldine truly takes the time and effort to make Fanore Lodge that little bit special by providing everything from fresh bread on arrival to scented candles and luxury bath oils. The lodge has sweeping views of the Atlantic from both the living room and the master bedroom, and a fireplace so one can stay cosy in the winter. Fanore itself is a great base to explore the west coast of Ireland, with the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and Bunratty castle being some of the sights less than an hours drive away. We will definitely be back!
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.
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.

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