Doolin house description
"In terms of the music you are either in McDermott's, McGann's, or O'Connors or heading over." -Playwright John Doorty
Tigh Amu - at the heart of the village.
Tigh Amu (gaelic for "the house of Amu," my sister's married name) sits at the end of a private road surrounded by beautiful quiet countryside, yet it is only a five-minute walk to the lively pubs in Doolin village. Doolin is famed as the home of traditional Irish music and its sea food restaurants. Doolin is the ferry port for the Aran Islands and a short drive from the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and the largest Stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere (now open to the public and a must see).
Tigh Amu is a spacious modern Irish country home, with a large kitchen/diner. It also features an open fireplace built from Connemara marble in the living room. Both the living room and the family room have sliding doors leading out onto the garden affording lovely country views.
* Four large bedrooms (all en suite)

Perfect for all ages
Perfect for all ages
My husband and I stayed here with our 2 college age girls and our mothers last August. We enjoyed the bucolic views, the short walk to the Doolins pubs, and ferries, and the kitchen, which was perfect for cooking the fresh local fish while planning our next day. The owners were great. We found the people, music and food of Doolin to be delightful, and it was close to some beautiful and deeply moving sites - the prehistoric fort and church ruins at Inis Mor, the Burren, and Poulnabrone Dolmen. We were more comfortable walking around Doolin in the day than at night as the roads were narrow with no sidewalks, and driving took some courage. But we highly recommend this place as a wonderful way to see Ireland for the first time.

Ireland a country of breathtaking beauty! And the people are the most wonderful people that we have ever met in our travels. This house is everything that you could ever hope for. It is tucked away down a gravel road, with 3 cows as your neighbors. Give them an apple with a cube of sugar and they will come up to the stone fence in the morning when you wake up, and greet you with a mooo. The house has everything that you would require, it is clean, well maintained, spacious the list is endless. The view from every room in the house is so, so so beautiful. My husband and i also recommend having supper in town at the "River side bistro". The restaurant is charming, and the food is outstanding. Eddie who is the waiter, and who also owns his own "Cafe" and "Barber shop" in Ennistymon, called "Cafe.Jel" Is such a delight, and very helpful. The pubs are a stone throw away. But, far enough where, should you decide to stay in, and cook a meal, light the fireplace, and watch one of the many movies that are provided and enjoy the view from the house. Thank you Cris and Olive for sharing this beautiful cottage with us. You both are amazing people. We have already booked our tickets for Sept 2012. Hoping to see you both again. Josie and Michael.

A group of ladies on a weekend away had the most wonderful time in this beautiful home. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need, and we did a lot of cooking. The bedrooms are all en-suite and very comfortable. The sun room had a view of the sea and the village of Doolin. We could not recommend this house enough. Well done.
