                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1980

                  About the owner: Sean and I were born and raised in Co. Clare and Galway and have lived on this land for the last 28 years. This area of the Burren is so special to us for its music, beautiful walks, stunning coastline and warm friends and family. We would love to have you join the family on your next holiday to Ireland.

                  Why the Owner Chose Burren:
                  We both fell in love with the area before we met each other and by the time we did meet Sean had found and bought all two wall a chimney and a half acre of wilderness. He had left it sit for a few years until I came along. Then together with help from good friends we slowly renovated the cottage. These days we are tackling the garden. To be honest the whole place is a labour of love. We are always planning and scheming about what needs doing next and what dreams we have for the old place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  One of the first thing that seems to strick our guests time and time again is the warm peaceful energy that the cottage and garden holds. The cottage has always been a home for creative people it is a place that feeds and inspires the imagination.
