John and Adrienne Mc Mahon
John and Adrienne Mc Mahon purchased this house in 1999
John was born in this area of Co Clare and has a lot of family connections there. We like to spend our free weekends there when we can and love to take walks in the surrounding countryside or along the nearby beaches.
The number one benefit is quietness away from the hassle of every day life. The scenery is breathtaking and never ceases to amaze one.
Two wonderfully weeks we spent right here. Catching crabs in Ballyvaughan and boating to Innisheer. Dipping in the sea from Doonbeg to Fanore. Exploring Allwee Cave, braving the cliffs of Moher. To Killfenora on Thursdays for the weekly celi and Poll ns Bron dolmen – the oldest one yet. In Bunratty Castle, a trip back in time. Then the beautiful Burren carved out in lime. With monopoly and chess up above in the loft to keep the kids amused when days were ‘soft’. And as for the house: it’s a real Gold Nugget. Thank you so much – go raibh mile maith agat.
Spectacular. ..We can't wait to go back. The house was beyond what we could have hoped for...John was very helpful and thoughtful in any questions we had. The house local was perfect for exploring the western part of Ireland. The bed were dreamy, the kitchen had all we needed to make breakfast and our dinners, the laundry takes must longer in the UK ..so plan accordingly. The locals where lovely. Great famiky house .. we need to plan to come again. Thank you both for sharing your home with
I think our family, we made magical memories in Ireland .. a tip..get a wii fi hotshot from your car rental.
This cottage was very clean and more than adequately furnished for two couples. It is close to the town of Lisdoonvarna and to all the local sights - including the Burren and Cliffs of Moher. There were good views of the ocean and the setting sun. I would return, and will recommend it to others.
We had a lovely 4 nights at the cottage-beautiful views of the ocean, great walking directly out front and short drives to everything else we wanted to see in the area. Comfortable beds, great espresso maker, and outdoor patio made our trip extra enjoyable. The area is so peaceful, sunsets over the water were amazing and we all slept wonderfully. Many thanks to Adrienne and John for being so hospitable! Highly recommend!
The cottage had everything we needed, we found it very clean and comfy. We plan on returning in September!!
The cottage was exactly as described : well equiped and very clean.
It was what we were looking for : very quiet and with breathtaking views.
We rented this cottage for a week with 8 persons . We had enough space and our 2 boys from 10 and 12 could play football in a save garden.
The house was very clean , the kitchen was very good equiped and the beds were small but with good matrasses.
Adrienne and John had a lot of tips were we could go to, or were we could have dinner in pubs or restaurants.
Also there was a lot of information present in the cottage what you could do in your holiday.
We had a lovely week and the Cliffs were the most impressive experience but there is so much to do, our week holiday was over in a blast.
Thank you John and Adrienne and if we come back it would be in your house.
Flaggy Shore is half a mile of coastline at Finvarra, County Clare. The shore is at its most beautiful on an evening after a light rain, with the setting sun above. This is when the soft limestone rock, wet from the rain and eroded into fantastic rounded shapes by the sea, reflects all of the colours of the sunset like a giant mirror in the landscape. Small wonder that this place inspired the late Irish poet and Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney.
