Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Here we are pony trekking in the Burren just a 15 minutes north of the cottage. My husband Mike is on Padraig, an Irish draft. I'm on Max, an Irish cob.

Why the Owner Chose Liscannor:
We started vacationing in the area years ago because my husband has family there. We loved being there - horse back riding, golfing, hiking, walking on the beaches, listening to traditional irish music sessions, meeting wonderful people. We looked for a place for years & fell in love with this cottage & bought it on the spot!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love horses & there are always some sort of equestrian events going on - fairs, races, eventing, hunts, etc. The people in the area are great - very friendly & welcoming. The weather is completely different every trip so the landscape is never the same & you do different activities according to the weather, so every trip feels unique. County Clare is world famous for it's traditional music - we get to listen to great sessions every night we are there.
