Property description

Creig Cottage has the most spectacular views of the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher and Galway Bay.
Built on a half acre elevated site, it is situated in the heart of the limestone Burren, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Yet for a lively night out, we are just three miles from Doolin, which is famous for its nightly traditional music and fine seafood restaurants, or take a boat across to the Aran Islands or a Cliffs of Moher cruise.

Some of Ireland's most famous attractions are all within easy access - Ailwee Cave, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Galway and Limerick. Take a day trip to Connemara, Kerry, Ashford Castle or Dromoland Castle.

Beautiful `Blue Flag` long sandy beaches (Fanore and Lahinch), swimming pool, horse riding, fishing, and championship golf courses are all close by.

The cottage is on The Burren Walking Tour, an ideal base for walking and touring through spectacular scenery. Wild goats, badgers, foxes, birds and unique flowers can be seen on this unspoiled barren land. A fascinating area for all Botanists, Ornithologists and Geologists.

Lisdoonvarna or the `spa town` is noted for its sulphur water, and for its `match making festival` on September and afternoon dancing.

Miltown-Malbay hosts the Willie Clancy summer school every July, learn to play a traditional instrument or Irish set-dancing.

Golf Information; A championship world famous golf course of Lahinch is just 20 minutes drive. There is also Doonbeg, Dromoland Castle and Ballybunion all within a 2 hour drive.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Busy mother and I also run a Bed and Breakfast in nearby Lisdoonvarna.

Why the Owner Chose Doolin:
We built Creig Cottage in the year of 2000. It is located on Martins family land and we needed a holiday home when we visited as we lived in Dublin and our family was growing. So we felt we could no longer take over Martins mums house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is unique in its setting - looking out the windows is an ever changing picture. It is as Ireland should be viewed. Overlooking the ocean and unspoiled.
