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 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.

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.

Such a peaceful place to unwind and relax! A little bit of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at this house! It’s perfectly located to experience the peace and serenity of our favorite area in Ireland. Our walks were so nice and the views of the countryside and ocean so picturesque. Then when we wanted to take off, there were plenty of places to go enjoy. The house is lovingly decorated and set up to provide all the amenities you need. We loved how perfectly clean everything was. Highly recommended!!

The Wild Atlantic Way

  • 5 of 5

I came to Ireland with my four adult sons. My great-great grandparents and my great grandmother came to Michigan, USA from Ireland. I chose this location because of the outdoor adventures offered. I didn't know the real adventures were on the one lane roads! We were entertained each day within a 10 mile radius of this lovely home.

This home is perfect for a convient home-base. Beautifully decorated with

tile and wood, inviting furniture and three living areas (even grown sons need some separation at times, ages 45 to 55 years). Some things never change.

The McMahons were so accommodating with my many questions and needs. Perfect hosts!

We would all return to this home if visiting Ireland.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much. The cottage was very nice and comfortable. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed the visit by the horses in the mornings. We were very close to area attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, great music on Doolin and Lisdoonvarna, and boat rides to the Aran Islands. We ran late arriving to the cottage and got a little lost as we went through town. John was very gracious and accommodating. Thank you! We recommend staying at the cottage and look forward to a return visit.

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.

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.
