Magical place in the Burren

  • 5 of 5

To start, the photos for this cottage do not do it justice. This is an absolutely fabulous place to stay - we felt so fortunate to be able to spend time here. The owners are fantastic people. While here we went on many adventures with our 8 and 11 year old sons, including heading to the Ailwee Cave, surfing lessons at Fanore Beach, trips into Doolin and Galway, and fabulous hikes up into the Burren. Also - go to the fishing tackle shop in Fanore. You can rent fishing rods from Mick and fish for Mackerel right off the shore of Black Head at dusk! The kids loved this, we did it a couple of nights.

This is an absolutely magical place and we were so happy to spend time here - very hard to leave!

Our Fanore visit.

  • 5 of 5

A grand place, that is beautiful and serene. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is off the beaten path, just a bit, and has a remarkable "driveway"!

The views are amazing and proximity to the Burren and the Ocean? well you are right there.

If the time comes again, we will return!

Great house well equipped and modern

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in Brendan's house with our two daughters and two friends of us. The house is modern, with large rooms and located in a very quiet area. It was perfect. We would recommend it to anyone who want to discover the west coast of Ireland.

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage. We stayed for 5 nights and it suited us perfectly. The first day we slept a good deal and then explored a bit on foot. We then hiked quite a bit - there are wonderful walking trails in the hills around the cottage. We then traveled to Ballyvaughn and Doolin. We even spent the whole day in Gallway and then got back at night. The beach is stunningly beautiful and the restaurants and pubs nearby great. We prefer to stay in cottages rather than hotels and b and bs so we were prepared to find our own way around. Brendan and Rita were wonderfully helpful. I can't say enough about the cottage. It was comfortable, clean, modern, allowed us to rejuvenate and be in the most spectacular natural setting.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is much larger than imagined by the fotos, all the rooms are spacious and very nice. I loved to cook in the wonderful kitchen, which - as all rooms - had great views of the Burren. My family loved the oven in the living room. Everything worked well and the cottage was very clean. The place was a great startung point for walks in the Burren (it takes 2 minutes to reach this bizarre nature), but the beach and O'Donohues was not far eather. You can buy all essential things in the little shop nearby.

The owner and his wife have been very friendly and helpfull.

PS: visit the Caher Bridge Garden, Carl who runs the garden is unique.

PPS: a good knife would be a good addition to the kitchen
