Fabulous place to stay, step back in time with modern conviences!
My husband and I spent a week at The Gamekeeper Cottage and that was too short of time. We really wanted to see what the real Ireland was about and we found it here with Carole and Kevin Clarke. Salt of the earth people and very accomadating to the tee. Beautiful country everywhere you look. With me being raised on a farm I felt right at home with the barnyard chickens and ducks. We spent most of our time with the locals and walking the countryside surrounding the area. Can't say enough about the whole experience thank you Kevin and Carol.
If you want to experience true Ireland culture, this is it!
We had a wonderful time here. We went with another couple and we all agreed this was the perfect place for us. The owners are so friendly and made us feel right at home. Weather was sunny and warm and enjoyed the beautiful landscape.
It’s exactly what your mind and body need
We arrived quite late and were so excited when we turned the corner to see the property. Kevin drive to meet us in the village to guide us in and from the outset, he and carole perfectly matched the charm of the place. Invited in for a warming drink, it’s obvious this couple are in the right business- hospitable, genuine and so interesting. Kevin is a descendant if the original owners dating back to the 1600’s. We were spoilt in the cottage with homemade bread, milk and eggs, chocolate and flowers. The goal is clearly to make their guests welcome and special and profit second. It is the best value for money and we were so sad to leave. Thanks for the tip to go to Galway too Carole!! Love you guys
COUNTY CLARE IRELAND
My girls and I came to Ireland to enjoy the countryside and explore our family roots. In the process we found so much more. Whitegate and the gamekeepers cottage is the perfect launching point to see some of Irelands greatest treasures. If you want authentic—this is it. We can’t say enough about the Clarke’s, as they were so helpful in every way and a joy to sit and talk with. Oh— and then there’s Cooper—the shorthaired pointer!!! Wow, well you’ll just have to go see him. At the cottage we had everything we needed. We had plenty of space, room to cook, and plenty of hot water. My daughters have told me that we HAVE TO go back to Ireland, so you can bet that when we do, we will be staying at the gamekeepers cottage. Many—many thanks to the Clarke’s, we had a blast!!!!
We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. Carole and Kevin were terrific hosts and we had a wonderful time chatting with them. Their home is absolutely beautiful. We were traveling with our small children and they loved all that there was to do on the property and in the surrounding area. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. This place is a great stay off the beaten path, in a beautiful Irish location. Highly recommend!
Have a True Irish Experience at This Location!!!
Go back in time as you stay on the grounds of the Williamstadt House. The Game Keepers Cottage is a charming stone building located next to the Williamstadt House. We were greeted by the owners Carole and Kevin and were gifted with an apple pie and fresh eggs. We were invited up to the big house for tea upon arrival and were made to feel so welcome. Carole took us on a walk down to the harbor and around the neighboring area. The cottage is tastefully decorated with all the amenities you could need. Carole and Kevin were very helpful in giving us advice on what to do and where to go while staying in the area. I highly recommend staying here, if you want to feel enmeshed in the Irish culture.
Hello to the sisters and the gentleman! We loved your visit with us and hope you will return one day. I have framed the beautiful watercolours you gave us, and plan on sending you many photos from here. You both captured the place so well.
Thank you for those gifts, they really mean so much to us! I have secured a place for your talent at the Saturday Farmer's Market in Mountshannon!
All the best,
Carole and Kevin
