Clare Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Experience the true magic of West coast from Fuschia Cottage. Its location is remarkable in that from the front door you see the broad Atlantic, to the left of you the Cliffs of Moher and on your right hand side the barren Burren landscape.

Fuschia cottage is a family owned and run vacation rental and this is very evident in the hi spec furnishing, level of comfort and cleanliness provided. The owners, frank and Marian Sheedy, greet all their guests personally on arrival and are always available to assist in any way to ensure their guests have a really successful holiday. The high level of repeat business bears testimony to this fact.

This house has been built to maintain the old world charm of a traditional Irish cottage whilst supplying all modern conveniences that today's discerning traveller requires. It resembles home from home which probably explains why so many guests return year after year.

A sunset viewed from the patio outside Fuschia Cottage is one truly magical experience and not to be missed.

The cottage consist of 4 bedrooms - 2 queen size doubles, one twin and one single - two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, sitting room with natural fuel stove, sun lounge, patio with BBQ, gardens and ample parking off the street.

One will find abundant entertainment in the trips to the Aran Islands, visit Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Caves, Doolin Cave, horse riding, swimming, surfing, hill climbing, exploring the Burren. Doolin village renowned for its traditional music has an incredible amount of fantastic restaurants and craft shops and is only a 10 min drive away. Always a pint and a bit of craic to be had there.

Our sister property The Wildberry Cottage is just a few minutes away that also boasts the same wonderful views and sunsets.

About Marian Sheedy

We both grew up in this area and built Fuschia cottage as our home in 1995 when we got married. We lived here for several years until we moved nearby to another house. We both have worked in the catering business since college and currently run Roadford House Restaurant in Doolin village. We have two children - Blathnaid and Jack, a dog called Beans

We enjoy guests coming to our home and make every effort to ensure their holiday in one to remember. Several guests return year after year so they are now family friends.

Marian Sheedy purchased this cottage in 1995

I'm sitting in gorgeous Fuschia Cottage in rural Ireland overlooking lush green Ir hills and the glorious ocean as I write this review. It doesn't get much better than this!

We arrived at Fuschia Cottage to be welcomed with a basket of homemade scones, jam, brown bread and fudge - all from the award winning chefs who own and manage two of the best holiday cottages I've stayed in anywhere. Every comfort is taken care of and the place is roomy enough that seven of us don't get in each other's ways. It is spotlessly clean, well equipped and modern but the character is that of an old Irish cottage. I've been to the Burren several times from Texas and will come back again and again, hoping to rent this cottage each time for wonderful family vacations.

Comfortable, Clean, and Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 7-day stay at Fuschia Cottage in Doolin this November with our daughter and two friends. The cottage was extremely clean (pictures don't do it justice!), and very spacious with all the amenities you would need. Additionally, the sunsets and views of the Aran Islands were breathtaking! Frank and Marian were nothing but accommodating. When we arrived, there were delicious homemade scones and bread awaiting us. Marian arrived shortly after we did and showed us how to work the heating systems, setup our wifi, and give us ideas on travel. She even provided us with a pack-n-play and highchair for our daughter. We had a question about the heating system on our second day and Frank was there within minutes to assist us. Despite a cold and rainy week of weather, we were able to have an incredible stay in Ireland thanks to our home base at Fuschia cottage. Highly recommend!

Perfect cottage, Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was absolutely wonderful for our family of 6. There was plenty of space (there was even an extra bedroom we didn't use). It had everything we needed - a great kitchen, SPECTACULAR views, even a massage chair in the sun room! You can see the sea from your backyard, along with a beautiful field of flowers, and there are some ruins just next door. The owners were so helpful and came over whenever we had questions or needed any help. Doolin is great little town and has the best live music in the country! We were so happy with our decision to stay here and would do it again in a heartbeat! Hopefully we'll be back one day!

Amazing and Intimate!

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Marian have a wonderful cottage! And they are just the sweetest people you could ever hope to meet. The views of the village and ocean from the cottage are simple breathtaking. My husband and I went there for our honeymoon with the only plan that Doolin would be our starting point. Marian was super and gave us really great advice as to where to spend our days for an authentic and fun experience. As well as how to avoid tourist traps. I highly suggest eating at the Roadford House. The food is to die for! Frank is a fantastic chef! The cottage was a great place as a central point for driving all around the county. You can find something to do everyday. It was an amazing experience that we hope to repeat in the future.

Outstanding Rental

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 of my girlfriends traveled to this quaint little town (Doolin) on the west coast of Ireland. The house itself is about a 5 minute drive from the town. It sits perched up on a hill overlooking the Atlantic. The house has terrific space, comfy beds and spectacular views. We used this as our home base to take day trips and tour the West and SW coast. We stayed only 4 nights and spent the last 2 in Dublin. We were kicking ourselves upon reaching Dublin and wondering why we ever left such a wonderful home. Highly recommend
