About John and Adrienne Mc Mahon

John and Adrienne Mc Mahon

John and Adrienne Mc Mahon purchased this house in 1999

Why John and Adrienne Mc Mahon chose County Clare

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.

What makes this house unique

The number one benefit is quietness away from the hassle of every day life. The scenery is breathtaking and never ceases to amaze one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Notes:
The cottage is on the Wild Atlantic Way tourist route. The Wild Atlantic Way is a tourism trail on the west coast of Ireland. The 2,500 km driving route passes through nine counties and three provinces, stretching from County Donegal's Inishowen Peninsula to Kinsale, County Cork, on the Celtic Sea coast. Along the route there are places and attractions which have been designated as points of interest for travellers. The Burren Way Trail is a trail through the Barony of the Burren which forms the northern part of County Clare, overlooking Galway Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The word Burren comes from Boireann, or stony district, and refers to the 130 square kilometres of spectacular terraced carboniferous limestone hills and valleys that characterise the area. The highest hill, Slieve Elva is a mere 344 metres above sea level, but the south-western end of the Burren bedrock drops into the sea at the Cliffs of Moher which rear more than 200 metres vertically out of the sea.

Great Property on Ireland's West Coast

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent two weeks in John and Adrienne's cottage near Lisdoonvarna, Ireland. What a terrific property, very comfortable. It made a great base for day trips all over western Ireland. Dublin is also an easy 3 hour drive. We found the Irish people very friendly and helpful at every encounter. Thank you.

Brilliant Location Along the Wild Atlantic Way

  • 5 of 5

We very enjoyed our stay at this cottage which was large enough for the 5 adults in our group. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The location of the cottage was perfect for our planned day trips: golfing in Lahinch, ferry at Doolin, caving in Ballyvaughn, family visit in Ballinasloe. Some highlights for future guests would include horse back riding ay Mountain View (the owner Peter is terrific), the roadside pub and Burren smoke house in Lisdoonvarna. Lisdoonvarna is a nice little down that we considered home base and frequently daily to get coffee, news paper, provisions and beer/wine. There is a grocery store as you pull into down on the left (MACE?) that sells everything.

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.
