Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My father was born in Clare and my family have been in Clare since before record keeping commenced. As children we used to go to Ballyvaughan for a swim,a walk and an ice cream. In medieval times the McNamara clan were known as Builders. This is my occupation and I built this cottage as a holiday home for our family in 1997. Thats me taking in some fresh air on the green road over Black Head.

Why the Owner Chose Burren:
Ballyvaughan village is in a beautiful location on the coast of Galway Bay in the heart of the Burren in County Clare, Ireland. It is located on the Wild Atlantic Way sea route that runs along the west coast of Ireland. The sea and mountains around here are completely pure and unspoilt and will remain so because the village is now located within a national park.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The village grew up in the 19th century around its harbour and it developed as a small fishing port. Its piers are very much a part of the village today and there is fishing and boat hire from the harbour. There are blue flag beachs nearby. However Ballyvaughan is now known for its location in the mysterious Burren region, a mecca for botanists and walkers. The many attractions close by include Ailwee Caves, Newtown Castle Fanore Beach, the Green roads and the mountain / sea views at Black Head. The village is very well serviced by its pubs and restaurants.A short drive will bring you to Ennis or the very lively Galway city.
