Only a few miles from the castle you will find the longest sand beaches in Ireland, the world famous Cliffs of Moher, the ferry to the Aran Islands, 2 championship golf courses and the most Western spa in Europe. The property lies within the unique Burren landscape with its rare flora, prehistoric monuments of international importance and so much more!

Electric stove and microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer all there to make sure you don't miss the convenience of home.

About Oliver's Travels - UK

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Nearest Airport
30.5 Kilometres
Shannon International Airport

Shannon Airport is about 45mins by car. The castle is 2.5 miles from the nearest town. There are hundreds of things to see and do in the neighbourhood, from experiencing the countryside to one of the many cultural events or extensive sports facilities. County Clare is a land of ancient castles and diverse landscapes, of uncrowded byways and fascinating sightseeing, from quiet lakes to vast, sandy beaches and the eerie landscape of 'The Burren'.

Lahinch (6 miles): This lovely seaside resort has a lot to offer. Stretching around one of the longest sand beaches in Ireland it also has a fantastic Seaworld Aquarium and leisure centre with swimming pool and two championship golf courses.

Cliffs of Moher (6 miles): Some call it the largest tourist attraction in Europe! Rising 650ft out of the Atlantic Ocean and extending for 5 miles, the sheer rock face of the Cliffs is an awesome sight.

Doolin (6 miles): The mecca for Irish music, pubs and celtic craft. From here leaves the ferry to the Aran Islands. The three Aran Islands lie in the entrance to the Galway Bay.

Kilfenora (2.5 miles): The smallest diocesan of Ireland with its cathedral and famous highcrosses. Nearby, Lickeen Lake, is an insider tip for every passionate freshwater angler. Have a look into the Burren Exhibition Centre with its fabulous display. And don't miss the traditional Irish Dancing at Vaughan's Barm - great fun!!

Liscannor (6 miles): Famous among deep-sea anglers. Step on board one of the boats and explore the waters of Galway Bay. You may see blue sharks, basking whales, dolphins or even killer whales.

Lisdoonvarna (3 miles): Founded at the discovery of its sulphur, iron and magnesium rich spa wells, this town is home to welcoming restaurants and some excellent traditional pubs. Give yourself a treat in a sulphur bath, have a massage, wax treatment or sauna in old-fashioned Victorian surroundings. Don't miss the unsurpassed taste of the world famous salmon from the Burren Smoke House.

Within 10 miles there are also many sports facilities including pony trekking, surfing, diving, abseiling, caving, pitch & putt, cycling, tennis, and of course hundreds of miles of scenic walking routes.
