Amazing Family Christmas Experience!
If you are considering a stay at Thomond House, don’t hesitate! You will be treated to wonderful accommodations and warm hospitality. Marion and Ger went out of their way to make sure our experience was everything we wanted and more. We took my parents and our three children for a week over Christmas and everyone (ages 15 to 74) had such a great time. Ireland itself is an amazing holiday but staying here made it magical. It’s central location and proximity to the Cliffs of Moher was perfect. I was originally concerned we would be too remote but the village and surrounding area was lovely and only 10 minutes from all the amenities of Ennis. High end appliances, beautiful furnishings, and comfortable beds in oversized rooms made for delightful relaxation time “at home.”
Golf for eight!!
This house was perfect for eight golfers. Communication was very efficient, the hosts are great, and the house shows serious pride of ownership!! Very convenient to Shannon Airport but quiet and beautiful!!!!
So beautiful, we never wanted to leave!
I can't say enough about this beautiful home!
My family and I had the privilege of staying here for 4 nights. We had hoped to use this home as a base while we took day trips to explore the countryside and surrounding sights. The house was so comfortable and inviting, however, that we had difficulty pulling ourselves away from it each day! Each room was more beautiful than the next!
Six out of the eight bedrooms each had their own private bathroom, and the 2 bedrooms on the top floor shared a hall bath.
The bedrooms were luxurious and comfortable, and so lovely and thoughtfully appointed.
The common areas were very charming, and provided the perfect atmosphere for making cherished memories as we chatted over meals, or played board games with our kids.
This home also has a very spacious and functional laundry room with a washer and dryer, which was EXTREMELY helpful.
This home, for all it's luxury, is surprisingly kid friendly. Our hosts, Olive and her awesome 8 year old niece, Jane Ann, made us feel instantly at home and like family. They encouraged us to relax and to take full advantage of the many amenities provided. There were board games for the kids, and different sporting equipment so that the kids could play outside in the spacious yard.
They were so kind and thoughtful, and made us immediately feel at home. Olive prepared and delivered delicious scones each morning, and Jane Ann made the sweetest card to accompany the treats. They were able to offer suggestions and recommendations that helped us to make the most of our time in the area.
The home is conveniently located to several area attractions, and is within a short drive to many of Ireland's more popular west coast destinations. Not that that matters! Even if you never make it out of this home, your time will be well spent! :)
With a group of five couples we could not have asked for a more lovely place to stay and wonderful hosts. From Olive with her fresh baked scones and wonderful stories, Marion in making us all feel so welcomed and Ger for the history and local tours made for and absolutely remarkable visit. Well done!
Stunning property. Spectacular service.
Nestled on the River Fergus in a private, gated courtyard, is the Thomond house in the beautiful and quaint town of Clarecastle, Ireland. This property has been exquisitely renovated by the owners from army barracks dating back to the 18th century. Each room with en suite bath is appointed with gorgeously restored antique furniture. The story of the home and the love that has gone into the restoration is apparent with artwork throughout showing the building's history. We met with the owners on arrival and while on the property, and it was delightful. They took the time to show us the history of the property and we got to see the workshop where all the art and furniture restoration occurs.
The kitchen is fully appointed, every utensil, glass, and cookware one could need. And to top it off, we were greeted with scones each morning that were BETTER than we had at high tea at Ashford Castle!!!
We could not have had a more enjoyable experience, and would love to come back. It is a jewel of a property, just outside Shannon. We felt incredibly lucky to have been some of the first guests. Thank you for a unique and memorable stay. Your hard work and attention to every detail is apparent and so appreicated by us all. Bravo, and here's to the next trip!!!
Best Experience Ever!!!!
Our family had the most amazing experience staying at this gorgeous historical castle! Not only has it been renovated beautifully, but the family who owns it made our stay extra special! From homemade scones in the mornings to a tour of the historical castle. We felt like family! We were all sad to leave this beautiful home and will be back one day!!!
