'Could not recommend this holiday more to anyone looking for an ideal rural location to get away from it all. Wish we could have stayed another week!'

A wonderful week at Querrin Creek. The cottage is well equipped, very comfortable and very tidy. The location was peaceful and scenic, and not far from town and supplies...an excellent base for exploring the west coast.

We had a fantastic stay in Querrin Creek. The house is a lovely size, very clean and modern with lovely little artistic touches, and the kitchen was better equipped than my own at home! Louise & Brian, Dublin.



Querrin Creek is a great house, and West Clare is fabulous. Brendan & Sorcha, Perth, W. Australia.

Relaxing rural retreat in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this deceptively spacious cottage and were utterly delighted with it. 4 good bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, everyone in our party had their own space.

We were met by the owners representative who gave us a warm welcome and had a tea tray ready for us - a lovely touch.

This is the best equipped cottage we have visited - it had everything you needed. The views out of the back of the property were breathtaking - the Shannon Estuary; the Dingle Peninsular; fields and mountains in the distances.

This cottage is off the beaten track which we loved. There are no shops or pubs/restaurants within walking distance, but it is a great area for cycling and walking along the single track roads.

At the end of the lane is the creek where we went crabbing - catching lots, as well as skimming rocks. It is also great for swimming and playing racket sports on the walled court. You can also have a picnic on the stone tables and benches with a great outlook.

While in County Clare we visited the Burren which was spectacular, the Aillwee Caves, the Cliffs of Moher, Ennis for the Fleadh, Scattery Island, Kilrush, Vandeleur Walled Gardens (excellent cake and hot chocolate), Kilkee and bodyboarding at Lahinch.

The fish and chips at Kilkee were outstanding (beautiful fresh fish that melted in the mouth). The Long Dock at Carrigaholt was fabulous - excellent food and friendly staff.

The best part of our holiday other than the wonderful cottage was the hospitality we received from everyone we met. An amazing holiday with our 13 year old saying it was the best yet!

Cozy and comfortable stay in a pastoral setting

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a cozy cottage that felt warm and inviting after a long trip to Ireland. The cottage is nicely appointed and feels like home. It is nicely appointed with beautiful rustic furniture and inviting linens. It was very clean and comfortable. Access to the cottage was easy and a tea service was set when we arrived which made for a welcoming touch. The home is very spacious inside - more than enough room for a family. We enjoyed a peat fire in the fire place as we took in the pastoral setting around us. The cottage is surrounded by farms and pastures but it is in a small development of similar cottages. Don't be put off by the narrow road to get to the cottage - the one track road is part of the charm of this place. The estuary is a minute walk down the road which supplies lovely views and a great place for tranquil walks along the shore. On our first day there, we were greeted by a stray group of a dozen calves who had wandered on to the rocky beach. With the help of a local, we helped to herd them back to their farm. What a great experience for our family and a terrific welcome to Ireland. Kilrush and Kilkee are very short and easy drives away where you can dine or purchase groceries. Both lovely areas to explore. Sheila, the owner was lovely to work with throughout the rental process and made sure our visit was exceptional. We would love to come back and we whole heartedly give this rental a positive endorsement. Thank you for a fabulous stay!

The perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We are city folk, we wanted to escape the city for a couple of weeks and found Querrin Creek. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean and really has everything you need. We brought our own food but also ate out quite a bit as it is perfectly situated in between all the small towns. Lots of great eateries and charming pubs. The addition if a squash court close by, both kept the children happy and tired! As a family we lived this house, a perfect escape to country living with all the mod cons you would want. Looking forward to returning with and without the children.

A walkers paradise on the WIld Atlantic coast

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I, all walkers headed to Querrin Creek at the end of September last year to spend a week walking and exploring the magic of the Wild Atlantic Way. We planned a different venue every day, so Querrin Creek was the perfect location. We were met by Patricia, the housekeeper who could not have been more friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The cottage was the perfect size for the six of us, it was spotless and oh so comfortable after our long days trekking. We were lucky enough to have the most beautiful sunsets over the bay for our evening barbecue and few glasses of wine.

We walked to Loop Head Lighthouse along the cliff edge on the Wild Atlantic Way. We spent a day exploring Kilkee along the magic Georges Head and then headed to the Diamond Rocks and finished with a swim in the famous Pollock Holes. Our day walking in the Burren was spectacular and there is no shortage of cosy bars where you can toast your feet on an open fire, eat wonderful fresh seafood and have a bit of traditional music thrown in.

The owner had supplied plenty of information on all the local things to do and see, and we all agreed we could have spent another few days there, but left with wonderful memories of West Clare.
