About Connie Tyrrell

Sean and I were born and raised in Co. Clare and Galway and have lived on this land for the last 28 years. This area of the Burren is so special to us for its music, beautiful walks, stunning coastline and warm friends and family. We would love to have you join the family on your next holiday to Ireland.

Connie Tyrrell purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Connie Tyrrell chose County Clare

We both fell in love with the area before we met each other and by the time we did meet Sean had found and bought all two wall a chimney and a half acre of wilderness. He had left it sit for a few years until I came along. Then together with help from good friends we slowly renovated the cottage. These days we are tackling the garden. To be honest the whole place is a labour of love. We are always planning and scheming about what needs doing next and what dreams we have for the old place.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the first thing that seems to strick our guests time and time again is the warm peaceful energy that the cottage and garden holds. The cottage has always been a home for creative people it is a place that feeds and inspires the imagination.

Fantastic Traditional Cottage, Great Time, Great Hosts!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently spent two fantastic weeks at Aisling Cottage discovering Co. Clare, the coastal villages, The Burren and it's wonderful people. Connie and Sean, and their beautiful cottage, did not disappoint us. The cottage was more than we imagined....traditional, quaint and comfortable. It as well located on the coastal road between Kinvarra and Ballyvaughn, and Sean's directions were spot on, making it very easy to find. Connie was always so helpful with her recommendations, and Sean always so concerned that we were happy and needing nothing. Sean even invited us to his traditional Irish music gig at Greene's in Ballyvaughn, a night that we still talk about. We will forever remember and cherish our time at Aisling Cottage and the genuine hospitality shown to us. We anticipate returning to see Connie and Sean soon, and now consider them our friends. Thanks for a great vacation experience!

A cozy and traditional cottage

  • 5 of 5
Aisling cottage is so wonderfully traditional! It is cozy and clean and a fabulous place to stay. During our 3 night stay we drove south to the Cliffs of Moher (driving on the coastal road is a spectacular drive!), and spent some time in the neighboring towns of Kinvara and Ballyvaughan. Connie and Sean are wonderful hosts! We would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our time at the Aisling Cottage. Connie and Sean have put a lot of work into making the cottage welcoming and cozy, and they are gracious hosts who understand the needs of their guests.
The cottage itself has 4 bedrooms, with one a little more detached than the rest. We used the two upstairs rooms that were beside each other and they were perfect for our purposes. There garden is beautiful, perfect for lounging around on a sunny day, or for sending the kids out to burn off some steam.
The cottage is situated between 2 little villages, both with plenty of amenities. You're within easy drives of plenty of tourist attractions. We enjoyed going for walks around the countryside close to the cottage. The landscape around the area is stunning and varied, and we could quite easily have stayed in the area for much longer, just nosing around and soaking up the atmosphere.
This rental is an excellent choice for those of us averse to the sterility of hotels, and who like to have our own kitchen facilities along with extra space.
Connie - please tell the faeries that Maggie is still talking about how they visited and brought cupcakes. She is still trying to puzzle out how they carried them.

Comfortable and Perfectly Located Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
My Daughter and I spent a week at the Aisling Cottage, situated between Kinvara in County Galway and Ballyvaughan in County Clare and settled in as though we were at home.We shopped at the local markets and farmers' markets to stock the frig for breakfasts and snacks and took advantage of the many local tea houses and pubs and restaurants for lunches and dinners.

The cottage had been the family's home and retains that completely welcome feel. The bedrooms are good sizes (two of them are large) and the beds are comfortable, especially snuggled under the delightful down covers.The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and the cottage has oil heat if needed, though we enjoyed firing up the wood stove after Sean gave us a quick lesson on how to use it.

The location is a perfect base for enjoying North Clare and Southeast Galway. We hiked on the magnificent Burren almost every day but also hiked along the Cliffs of Moher, took a wild boat ride out to see the nesting sea birds off the Cliffs (don't worry Roisin, never again), spent hours at ancient sites and castles and churches and graveyards with those Celtic Cross stones through the ages, stood in the ruins of Corcomroe Abbey and rural cottages and just let the spirits wash over us as we imagined older times and unhappy history.

We spent a day in very untouristy East Clare, crossing the low mountains on the narrowest back roads one could imagine and soaked up sun and views along Lough Derg. Another day was spent in Ennis town during a festival weekend; there we soaked up the traditional music in the town square. Everywhere we went we met people happy to talk and share life with us.

Sean and Connie and their daughter Roisin and home-for-a-visit daughter Lil were welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed their company over the kitchen table and at the local pub, with Father Colm of course. Easy friendships were formed. It is nearly impossible to persuade Sean to make music, but we did get a few lovely, heart wrenching songs from him. Not to mention fresh plucked mussels from the waters edge down the lane!

We would highly recommend this beautifully maintained cottage to everyone as we had a wonderful, memorable week on the Burren sheltered by its walls.

Loved Aisling Cottage! Didn't meet Sean, but Connie was a delight. The cottage was a perfect location for our daily drives. We went to Clifton, Ashford Castle, Doolin, Cliffs of Moher and of course, the Burren. One of our favorite pubs was in Kinvara, I think the name was "Keough's". I can't remember all we saw. Ballyvaughn had several nice pubs and a neat grocery. The cottage was comfortable, cozy and conventient. Definately would go back.
