About Mike and Tina
We aim to make your Irish vacation as enjoyable as possible. Seeking advice re. region? day-trips? restaurants? travelling? etc. Please just ask. We will be happy to help.
Mike and Tina purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Mike and Tina chose County Clare
Quiet and peaceful on the village outskirts, backing onto the Atlantic Ocean with its changing moods, this fully equipped 3 bedroom property is perfect for your stay. Set 500 meters off the Wild Atlantic Way, mid-way between the Burren landscape and the Eden Tourist Award winning 'Loop Head' there's plenty day trips if you can drag yourself away from Shorehaven's peace and tranquility.
What makes this Cottage unique
Unrestricted ocean view of the Atlantic of its ever changing moods and tides. Laze away in one of Shorehaven's hammocks or shoreside seats while lapping waters sooth your cares. The biggest decision? 'Will I have another beer...or opt for a glass of wine and some cheese...' :-)

Beautiful vacation spot!
Property was in great shape, so cute and so many details and personal touches! Owners were so thoughtful in getting the house ready, communicating and following up! We had three couples and were very comfortable with the space for sleeping and for hanging out together. We didn't cook more than breakfast but house is fully equipped for cooking meals and it was great to have snacks and a refrigerator for storage.
Everything was clean and inviting. Sitting on the enclosed porch and the side patio were such a pleasure. We didn't put the TV on the whole stay, too much to watch out the windows. Mike and Tina made recommendations for what to see and where to eat in the area. We drove north to the Burrens and Cliffs of Moher one day-about a 1/2 day adventure with stop at the Salmon Smokehouse. We drove south to Kilkee and Kilrush, a 2-3 hour adventure. Had beautiful sunsets from the back porch 2 nights. Great place to stay!
Thanks Emily for taking the time to post this lovely review. You were such a charasmatic group we would have loved to have more time to converse with.
Your enthusaism for life was so infectious. We hope you had a lovely journey home.
We are very pleased that our seaside cottage fulfilled your needs. Thanks for your friendship and custom. Regards to all.
We loved the ocean and the great hospitality of the home owners
Thank you for taking the time to post this review. You arrived just after Storm 'Ophelia', and lived through Storm 'Brian' so the ocean was at its most turbulent.
We are glad you survived and happy that you enjoyed your stay. Wishing you much more subdued and drier weather for the rest of your holiday. Regards and thanks.
A fantastic vaction home where you should stay if visiting Ireland!
Shorehaven is a wonderfully equipped vacation home direct on the sea. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the home. It is cozy, quaint, and the view of the sea and surrounding area from the glass veranda is stunning. It is located close to most everything of interest in beautiful County Clare.
Mike and Tina are extremely thoughtful as on our arrival they had a bottle of wine, fresh strawberries, chocolate, and a card for our 25th wedding anniversary. They also were available and gave us great tips for places to go and local talent to see in the area.
We plan on visiting Shorehaven again in the future and have already told relatives that they must stay at Shorehaven when they go to Ireland. Thank you again Mike and Tina for making our stay in Ireland truly wonderful.
Thank you for this lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your special anniversary at Shorehaven. Thanks for recommending us to your family and friends. We would love to have you both on a return visit. Health and happiness to you both always.
Perfect location--perfect vacation!!
Shorehaven was beautiful. The house was lovely, and the views were breathtaking. We walked right down the steps attached to the back patio to the beach. The sunsets were stunning, and the sound of the ocean crashing on the rocks mesmerizing! Tina and Mike were wonderful hosts--they had the house ready for us on check-in day, gave us a full tour and explained all we needed to know. They were available if we needed them, but after helping us get settled, they left us to enjoy our stay in beautiful Ireland. Staying in Quilty is perfect as you can easily travel north or south to many beautiful sights and towns. The town of Kilkee (about 40 min south) wasn't in any of our tour books, but definitely a must see if you are touring the west coast of Ireland. I would highly recommend staying at Shorehaven. I definitely hope to return some day!
WOW!, can we employ you as publicist? Thanks for this lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree...Shorehaven is perfect for exploring north or south. We hope you do return, we enjoyed meeting you and your lovely family. May health, happinness and good music be always with you.
Home from home
The whole experience was fantastic. The home was definitely a 'home from home'. Mike and Tina made us all feel very welcome. Everything was on hand as described and it was a pleasure to stay there. The dining room was where we spent the most of our time due to the wonderful views, otters, sea birds, seals and ever changing views of the sea.
Thank you, your review is greatly appreciated. We are glad our seaside cottage fulfilled your expectations. We enjoyed meeting you and would have liked a longer chat but time constraints on both sides interviened. The west coast of Ireland is perfect for flora and fauna gazing and we would love to have you back. Thank you for your custom and lovely relaxed outlook. You will always be welcome in Shorehaven.
What a fantastic place!!!
Beautiful views, unbelievable property owners! This place has it all! Amazing local restaurants, easy access to great tourist sites and did I mention the view. Beds were comfortable, house was clean on arrival and the owners tina and mike even left us a snack. I would totally come back here the problem is you never want to leave the house!
Thank you for this review. It was our privilage to host you lovely people. You will always be welcome to return. Thanks for recommending 'the galleon' fish plate at the Armada. It was as you said, 'Awesome'. Regards and thanks. M&T
