Doonbeg house description

Luxury home with fully-equipped kitchen/dining area, lounge and relaxation areas. It has 5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 8 people. PLUS, beside the house, you also have detached multi-use accommodation, which makes it unique and means that it can also be used for everything from group meetings to family get-togethers. The extra detached accommodation includes a kitchenette, table and chairs, TV and can also sleep two people.

The house is set on peaceful grounds with front garden and a large back garden with patio and BBQ area. It is spacious and bright with all modern facilities. It includes free WiFi. There is private off-road parking for cars and boat or trailer.

The location of the house in the centre of West Clare makes it ideal for a wide range of breaks. It’s a place to detox away from the hustle & hassle of modern living. Drive short distances in any direction and you’ll discover incredible seascapes and landscapes – areas perfect for exploration, activities and enjoyment.

It is best suited to families or groups of up to 10 people and is perfect for leisure and activity enthusiasts, golfers, anglers, water-lovers, business strategists, team-building, retreats, writers, photographers, artists and wildlife and nature-lovers.

IF YOU LOVE BEACHES: explore the Wild Atlantic Coastline with beautiful beaches at Doonbeg (20 mins away), Quilty (24 mins), Spanish Point (28 mins), Kilkee (30 mins) and Lahinch (40 mins).

IF YOU LOVE NATURE: West Clare is a special place for wildlife and bird watchers. The Loop Head Peninsula is a designated European Destination of Excellence for Aquatic Tourism. The Peninsula drive starts 20 minutes from the house – and you’ll experience incredible land and seascapes on the circular route, from the Bridges of Ross to the Loop Head Lighthouse. The Shannon Estuary is home to over 100 dolphins - Ireland’s only known resident population and you can take a dolphin-watching boat trip from either Kilrush Marina (20 mins) or from Carrigaholt. The world-famous Cliffs of Moher are less than 60 mins away as is the Burren National Park - a limestone area where rivers flow underground and rare flora blooms. As you travel through these unique areas, thousands of years of history will unfold before you through castles, towers, ancient monuments and burial sites. Some monuments in this area are older than the pyramids! Nature takes you back even further in time and the caves in Clare, including the Aillwee and Doolin showcaves, are over one million years old (great for visits too!).

IF YOU LOVE ACTIVITY AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS: you can take to the cycling trails, to local walks or beach walks. The cliff walks at Kilkee and at Loop Head are REALLY spectacular! If you are a golfer, you can play at the world-rated Doonbeg Golf Links (20 mins). Designed by legendary golfer Greg Norman, it spans 1.5 miles of crescent shaped beach and features century-old sand dunes. Lahinch, a legendary golf links, is less that 40 mins away and there are several other golf courses within easy reach.

IF YOU ARE INTO WATER ACTIVITIES : the beaches provide endless opportunities for enjoyment. Kilkee, a blue flag beach, is perfect for swimming and is one of Ireland’s safest. The best surfing is at Lahinch and a number of schools there provide lessons or coaching for all ages and abilities. Beneath the Cliffs of Moher is probably the world’s biggest surfing wave named ‘Aileens’. It can reach heights of up to 50 feet but does not break unless the elements of wind, tide and swell combine for perfect conditions (it’s not for amateurs or the faint hearted!). Kilkee is great for diving and the late Jacques Cousteau rated it the finest diving spot in Europe. Kilkee also offers kayaking, canoeing, sailing and other watersports – and you can take beginner lessons or advanced coaching with all equipment provided. Sea, game and coarse fishing can all be enjoyed in West Clare. Knockalough Lake is 5 minutes from the house and holds a good stock of brown trout. If you want more exciting fishing, you can try shore angling or shark fishing off the Peninsula!

HORSE RIDING: Ireland is famous for its horses and horse riding is available near Kilrush at the West Clare Equestrian Centre. It provides lessons for all levels – from beginner to advanced and for both children and adults. There are beautiful scenic treks in the area as well.

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS include great restaurants and pubs – many serving locally caught fish. The pubs warmly welcome visitors and have regular music and singsong sessions. Traditional Irish nights feature regularly.

ENNIS, the capital of the County, is just over 20 minutes away and is well worth a visit. It’s a bustling town which dates back to 1240 and is famous for its quaint narrow streets, shopping and for its music.

DAY TRIPS – the Killimer Car Ferry is less than 30 mins from the house and takes you across the Shannon Estuary to Tarbert in Co. Kerry in just 20 minutes. From there you can take in Ballybunion (famous for golf) or Killarney. Limerick City is less than 60 minutes away and Galway less than 90 minutes away. Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, on of Ireland’s top visitor attractions, is within 45 minutes.

TRAVEL TIP: Shannon International Airport, with services from the United States, Europe and the UK is less than 45 minutes from the house and all the major car hire companies are located there. Cork Airport is 2 hours and 30 minutes away and Dublin Airport 3 hours and 15 mins.

When you book the house we’ll send you our very own insider’s guide notes to the area and can give you insights and tips depending on your interests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Doonbeg:
The house and the adjacent farm has been in the family for 5 generations. We extensively renovated it in 2007 - so it's full of all the modern comforts and yet retains the character of a home our extended family just love. It's a place our family and friends use a few times each year to get together, or to relax away from the faster pace and stresses of modern living. It's a very special place we take great care of and are happy to share with decerning travelers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's rural location, and it's proximity to so much within a small compact area, makes it special. It really is a de-stress zone (pure silence.... but for the sounds of nature and wildlife). The configuration of the house - including a separate detached accommodation (with kitchenette, toilet facilities, meeting and presentation facilities) also means its ideal for groups of up to 8-10 people. It's perfect for families, writers, artists, photographers, golfers, anglers, activity enthusiasts, wildlife and nature-lovers, business strategists, team-building, families and more.
