Soheen really does mean a place of rest and peace!

  • 5 of 5

This Irish cottage was absolutely beautiful! The surrounding area is gorgeous and breathtaking. Everything was well maintained and clean. Joan and Brian are excellent to deal with and don't hesitate to help you if you need them. The town of Lahinch was wonderful. There are lovely restaurants and of course a top class golf course. The Cliffs of Mohr are so close by. So is the Doolin Cave. Unbelievable experiences. I am so happy that I decided to stay here for 2 nights. Thanks, Joan and Brian for helping me to make my Ireland vacation special!!

This Irish home is absolutely beautiful! The surrounding area is breathtaking. Joan and Brian were wonderful to deal with and are there for you if you encounter any problems.

There is no better place to relax in Ireland!

  • 5 of 5

Ditto to each comment of the guests before us! The house is perfect and comfortable as can be!! We loved the area, large yard, welcome and help from the owners! We stayed with our 2 almost teen kids and loved the long walks, water, climbing, sights and huge yard! The kitchen and home was fully equipped over all and wanted for nothing! We were able to cook and enjoy every comfort of home! Just a skip to the Cliffs of Mohr too! We will plan to visit again and promise you will not regret selecting this home for your stay!

Fantastic!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property in a fantastic location! We couldn't have been happier there. It was a family trip, including two grown sons and a daughter-in-law and we had plenty of space, comfort and ability to both go out and about and see the West Coast and also relax in the beautifully appointed house. We were footsteps away from a terrific restaurant BarTra, where we had several delicious dinners. We also had the convenience of a large (very) kitchen where we were able to cook and enjoy eating home. From this house we traveled to nearby LaHinch, the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Cliffs at KillKee, further north to Ashford Castle and down through the Connemara Mountains, we went on a Hawk Walk in the Ailwee Caves site, saw Dolman's, the Aran Islands, seals, the beautiful rock beach just below the house, to name a few of the things we did. It was a trip of a lifetime - celebrating 30 years of marriage with the family! I would absolutely recommend this property and would go back myself. When we had an issue with the hot water, the property manager came over at 10 pm. We met lovely people, had six calfs right outside the door, and a local dog named Ben befriended us for our walks and relaxation time outside.

Couldn't be better.

Fantastic spacious property with superb views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday staying in Soheen. The pictures do not do the house justice - the kitchen is a massive space, perfect for family meals and just sitting and relaxing in. The garden is also huge! Our children loved playing in it and as it is completely fenced in we felt happy to let them run free.

The house is well equipped and very clean. We had a slight problem with the heating but a quick text to the caretaker and someone was over to fix it within the hour - just what you want, problem solved!

There is a fantastic seafood restaurant 2 minutes walk away from the house. You can also walk down to the sea in less than 5.

This house is the perfect base for a holiday in Co.Clare and we would have no hesitation in recommending it!

Clean house, fantastic location, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised, spacious, very well equipped, and (best of all of) it was clean. The location is excellent. Lahinch (5 min) and Ennistimon (7 min) have everything you need. The beach at Lahinch is beautiful and pristine (the soft serve ice cream and pubs aren't bad either). Moreover, it's a quick drive to some of the best views in Ireland.

We also had two small children (toddler and baby) with us, and the house worked quite well for us. There is a baby gate, high chair, and cot w/ sheets all there, so it was really easy to settle in.

We had only one little glitch – upon arrival we couldn't get the heat to work. The caretaker came in less than 15 minutes though and quickly took care of it (a water pipe just needed to be turned on after having been off for the winter).

Finally, the owners are very responsive to inquiries and very easy to work with.

If we come back to this part of Ireland again, we'll definitely stay here a second time.
