Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Ashrook Farm in May 2016 with my husband and son for 5 nights.

This home is beautiful. The photos don't do it justice. The furniture and personal items throughout the home are a wonderful touch. You truly feel like a guest in Mary's home, rather than in a rental space. The grounds and gardens are magnificent. The donkeys are lovable! The bed and linens so comfortable. This home has been restored and renovated beautifully, and it includes everything you need plus a library!

We were able to travel to most of County Clare destinations from this home, including Lahinch, the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, golf, Carrigaholt, Loophead, Bunratty Castle....we dropped off the rental car at Shannon airport which is approx 40 minutes drive. Ennistimon is very charming.

Finally, Mary the owner is such a lovely person. She greeted us with a bottle of wine, and was very welcoming. She is genuine and love the Irish hospitality! Her friend, also Mary, met us in the town to direct us to the farm and made sure to make us feel welcome also.

Thanks so much for sharing your home, Mary! We hope to return again someday soon. We miss Clare!

Fantastic Irish farm house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay last year was wonderful (yes, I'm a bit slow in getting my review up). This was the perfect place to relax and a convenient location to visit so many places in the west of Ireland. My wife, adult daughter, and I spent nearly a week here and enjoyed it immensely. From here, it was an easy drive to the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren (visit the perfumery while there), Bunratty castle, Lahinch, and other sites. Even more than the sites you could visit, the farmhouse and local area was a destination in itself that would bring me back. I enjoyed walking the lane in the morning and meeting the neighbors, feeding carrots to the donkeys, and relaxing by the fire in the evening. It was a quick drive into Ennistymon or Lahinch where you will find several nice restaurants if you don't want to cook. The house was clean, attractive and well furnished. Mary was very good to work with -- even accommodating when we had to switch dates. The cheeky cats will try to sneak into the house with you though, so watch out.

Classy farm out in the country

  • 4 of 5

For just us, a couple in our 60s, Ashbrook Farm was perfectly in the middle of County Clare. Mary met us with a bottle of wine, and we enjoyed the spacious home and very comfy bed, wood and peat fires (in both kitchen and living room), a lovely bath, feeding carrot greens to the two sweet donkeys. It was a great base camp for our daily adventures on the Burren, Moher, megalithic ruins, and music festival in Ennis.Twas a lovely, classy hideaway, would be great for a family. Lots of outdoor lawns etc. to wander in on the property too. Even a little stream and a little lake.

Great Irish Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, private farmhouse with plenty of room for my family of 5. House was well laid out and extremely neat. Mary, the owner, met us with a bottle of wine to kickoff our vacation. The setting was serene in the quiet Irish countryside, The house was in Ennistymon and was 5 minutes from the town center and 7 minutes to the center of Lahinch which had a ton of great restaurants, not to mention a beautiful beach. Also in the town center was a great supermarket for which we bought groceries and food to have back at the house when we wanted a break from restaurants. We used the house as our base camp to do daily touring of the sites around Ireland. It is 15 mins from the Cliffs of Moher, an hour and a half to Blarney Castle/Stone, Rock of Cashel, Cahir, 35 minutes to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Dromoland Castle/Falconry and a little over 2 hours to the Ring of Kerry for which we took the ferry. My daughter left a stuffed animal we got her in Ireland at the house and Mary was kind enough to promptly mail it back to us in the U.S. Just a real pleasant experience which helped make our trip to Ireland a memorable one. Would highly recommend.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family ( me, my husband and 3 children 6,5 and 11 months) just returned home after a week long stay at Ashbrook Farm. It was a perfect match for us.. My older children were so content playing with the very gentle and patient farm cats and Loved feeding the donkey's morning and night. I felt very secure that the kids were safe in the off road setting of the house and the house itself was very child friendly. Myself and my kids cannot wait to return.. I would highly recommend this property, it has perfect location, ammenities and just an overall warm feeling to the house. Thank you Mary again for a great time in Clare!

Irish countryside charm

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to have found this beautiful charming country estate. Everything we could have wanted for a restful vacation in this well appointed and cared for home was there. We were central enough to the many beauties of Clare, close to "trad" music, the beach, castles and more. The owner is a very gracious hostess. We couldn't be happier. It was just hard to leave.
