A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN A STUNNING LOCATION

County Clare House Rental Photos and Description

A spacious 5 bed 5 bath house great for families or romantic getaways

Bayfield House is a spacious, lovingly restored farmhouse with incredible views over Galway Bay and the mountains of the Burren National Park. It’s a five minute walk to the Beach and the extremely beautiful Flaggy Shore and sits in its own three acres of farmland and gardens.

While being perfect for just a couple of people it can sleep up to 12 with three en suite doubles, one twin-room and one bunk-room (with two bunk beds). All of the rooms are spacious, comfortable and airy. The generously sized kitchen is modern and well equipped and has a large dining table that can sit 10. There are three sitting rooms; the largest has big comfortable sofas and an open fire; the next overlooks the garden with views down to the water in one direction and up to the mountains of the Burren in the other; and the final one sits just one person very comfortably and looks out over Galway Bay from the “perch” upstairs.

Bayfield is in the heart of the Burren National Park. The surrounding area is outstandingly beautiful and while being a perfect place to relax and do nothing the area offers a huge amount of activities and things to see and do. The near by sandy beach leads onto the stunning Flaggy Shore with a three mile coastal road that is probably one of the best strolls in the world. The location is very rural with cows and sheep grazing the fields surrounding the house. In addition to it being so rural New Quay also benefits from having the excellent seafood restaurant 'Linnane's' (500 meters from the house) and the Russell Art Gallery which serves really good Tea, Coffee, Wine and Prosecco a short walk down the road. It’s a ten/15 minute drive to the bustling coastal villages of Kinvara and Ballyvaughan. Also within easy reach by road or water taxi is the lively coastal town of Galway famed for its Oyster Festival, the Galway Races and the great music played in its pubs. There are superb walks right from the front door of Bayfield which are great for any level of fitness ranging from the walk around the coast to hiking in the Burren hills. The golf courses of Lahinch, Gort and Drumoland are nearby. The surfing/kite surfing mecca of Lahinch is a short drive away as are the Cliffs of Moher which along with the Aran Islands are probably the most striking sites to see in Ireland. Due to the makeup of the landscape the area is famed for its flora and fauna which blossom in early spring. For historians there is the local history of the ring forts and the Neolithic tombs as well as some beautiful castles and churches to be seen. It is a great place!

If your group is ten or more there are other smaller houses in the area as well as great B&Bs in Kinvara and Ballyvaughan and we can also recommend a close by cottage five minutes walk down the road which sleeps 4 (twin and a double) – please ask for details.

Bayfield was built by our Great Great Grandfather and has been in the family ever since. We grew up visiting the house when on holiday and now think of it as part of the family. We love the walking, the pubs, the views and the people on the West Coast and come back to visit Bayfield whenever we can.

Great country holiday with friends

I stayed here with a group of friends for a country break. The house was huge and beautifully done with stunning views and everything you needed. Kitchen was perfect for large group meals and rooms large and very comfortable. Fantastic setting - despite it being February and pretty cold & wet we did some great coastal and hill walks and found some lovely, friendly local pubs. And a great little coffee shop/art gallery next door where we often stopped for a coffee (or stronger drink) after a long walk. Definitely planning to revisit in the summer.

We had a long weekend at Bayfield at the end of September 2013, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The description of the house, the rooms, the grounds, the scenery, the locality, & the activities… it's all spot on…! We flew into Shannon airport, and Bayfield was straightforward to find, and the little touches in the house instantly made us feel welcome and at home. We're already planning another trip to Bayfield in 2014…!!

The Burren is a spectacular area like no other and Bayfield was absoiutely perfect. The kids loved the wide open spaces of the garden (enormous) and exploring the seashore. Linanne's is a great place, fantastic sea food and a gentle 300 yard stroll (or stagger back) along the road by the sea. The house is great for a young family with lots of bathrooms and a big sitting room with a fireplace for the rainy nights. Bayfield is a magical spot looking out across Galway Bay. Would recommend Bayfield to anyone wanting to stay on the west coast of Ireland.

There is an endless supply of things to do in the area. The walks are top of the list for most people. The coastal walk offers different scenery every time you walk it due to the ever changing height of tide. At low tide the rock pools are great for foraging in for sea life and the local sandy beach extends out into Galway Bay. Quite often seals bask on the rocks of nearby inlets. The walks in the limestone covered hills that surround New Quay are also brilliant. There are easy walks and also some more challenging circuits that you won’t want to try unless you are fairly fit and take some provisions for. There are several horse riding stables in the area and quite often horse racing or point to point racing which is very popular in Ireland. The local villages of Kinvara and Ballyvaughan are great to visit and have superb pubs and restaurants. They often host festivals and regularly have live Irish music being played in one or other of the pubs. Further afield is Galway which is a lively and vibrant town that has year round live music in many of the bars. It has very very cool night life especially round the Quay side area and is a lovely town to walk around with a huge Cathedral and some lovely old Irish streets. Also within easy reach are the Aran Islands which can be accessed by a small ferry from Doolin (about an hour trip). The Islands are absolutely beautiful and great for walking on or hiring a bike and cycling around. Ferries from Doolin also go to the Cliffs of Moher which are as striking to see from the water as they are from the top of the cliffs. Having said how much there is to do around the area, Bayfield House and the tiny area of New Quay is somewhere that is great to stay and doing nothing in. There is the pub down the road and the Russel Gallery that does great food, wine and teas and coffees. You can buy freshly laid eggs and other basic groceries from local farmers. Staying in the house is a lovely thing to spend time doing either in the house itself or out in the garden taking in the views.
