Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: This home has been purchased as a holiday home for our family. We have an Irish and Scottish background and spent many holidays in Ireland. So to bring our children here is like history repeating itself!

Why the Owner Chose Carrigaholt:
The house is set in the village and is walking distance to the pubs, restaurants and all amenities. The village of Carrigaholt 'Rock of the Fleet' is a historic fishing port watched over by a 15th century castle. Located on the Loop Head Peninsula in County Clare, there is an island feel to the area,unspoiled and refreshingly underdeveloped. There is a sandy beach and picnic areas, a choice of pubs offering good food and warm hospitality. On the doorstep there are pubs for every taste.... a quiet pint, impromptu traditional music sessions, pub grub. An excellent fish food pub / restaurant and a local shop for groceries and fuel and fishing tackle. There is also a fresh fish sales outlet on Castle Pier. During the Summer there is usually an Oyster festival and a Family Festival in the village and a Jazz festival and workshop in a neighbouring village. There is a beach and 2 piers for fishing. Carrigaholt is a small sea-side village at the very mouth of the Shannon, the village has become a popular summer destination for the serious traveller. A fine keep and lawn of a small castle (one of the McMahons') stands near the pier. This castle has a long and colourful history of siege, capture, betrayal: quite a microcosm of Irish History. A few miles away is the birthplace of Eugene O'Curry who was honoured by having his likeness put on a postage stamp some years ago. O'Curry was a noted Gaelic scholar. The coastal scenery around Carrigaholt is spectacular with spendid examples of cliffs, sea-stacks, sea-caves, chasms and rocks; the well-known 'Bridge of Ross' is a sea-arch formed by marine erosion. In the village and locally there is a possibility for many and varied activities. There is a sheltered uncluttered beach within a few minutes walk. Bottle nosed dolphin watch boat trips leave from the pier. There is Deep sea angling and scuba diving trips and lessons. There is fishing from both piers and from the rocks locally.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Dolphinwatch Carrigaholt offers you the unique opportunity of experiencing bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops Truncatus) in the natural habitat surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery. At the mouth of the River Shannon between the Loop Head Peninsula (County Clare) and Kerry Head (County Kerry) lives a group of over 140 wild resident dolphins. Calves (baby dolphins) are born each year and are usually present in the family groups. Imagine the joy of encountering a group of these dolphins.... to watch them leap beside you and skim the water's surface... to look into the eye of a dolphin while it surfs the bow waves! Sea Angling is available from Mary and Luke Aston, check out their website www.fishandstay.com. The Burren is a place of unrivalled natural beauty that must be seen to be believed. It's unique barren limestone landscape is a treasure house for geologists, botanists, archaeologists, potholers, poets, artists, photographers, dreamers, hillwalkers and lovers of the great outdoors! Kilkee Waterworld - fun for all the family based on the Kilkee Promenade. Seaworld and Leisure Centre based at Lahinch. Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and Mediaeval Banquets. Knappogue Mediaeval Banquets in Quin. Boat trips to Scattery Island from Kilrush and to the Aran Islands from Doolin. The world famous Lahinch links golf is approx 30 miles drive from Carrigaholt. Fabulous Doonbeg (Greg Norman designed) is approximately 10 miles drive. Ballybunion, known to golfers, is approx 40 minutes via the Tarbert ferry.
