Why Helen Murphy chose Spiddal Area
Even though Pollclabber cottage was a ruin when we bought it, we fell in love with the oasis feel to its beautiful setting and the stream running under the road and down through the field in front of the cottage. We felt it oozed potential. It is located on the edge of the Burren way walking route, cycle route and Atlantic Way, perfect for exploring the area.
What makes this cottage unique
Pollclabber Cottage is a pure rural idyll, with amazing walks. I adore that moment when I reach the crest of the hill just before the house and the Aran Islands come into view across the sea. It manages to take my breathe away every time. It revitalises and re-energises me every moment I spend there. I hope it does the same for all our visitors to Pollclabber
Guestbook comments from the owner
A little hard to find for us Americans but boy was it worth the drive. The house is wonderful! We couldn't have asked for better. So warm and welcome. Just like being at home only better. We are here in beautiful Ireland. You have done the remarkable with the house, from the simplistic design to the high quality appliances and furnishings and the elegant taste. This house has made our stay in Ireland a pleasant one. You have thought of everything. Nothing like a great game of table tennis to get all the family involved.
