Fanore chateau / country house description

Four bed (all en-suite) home overlooking the Atlantic ocean and Aran islands to the front with stunning backdrop of the Burren mountains behind you. The accommodation comprises 2 bedrooms downstairs with a double bed in bedroom one, and a double and a single bed in bedroom two. There are a further two bedrooms upstairs - each with a double and a single bed. The bedrooms are bright, spacious and all en-suite. Each bedroom makes the most of the strikingly attractive views surrounding this home. There is also a guest bathroom downstairs. The house boasts a large kitchen cum dining room which will seat comfortably a large gathering. There is a large bright sun-room with an open fire place and wooden floors. Perfect views of the Aran islands are framed through the conservatory windows. The house is newly built with oil fired central heating and equipped with all modern appliances. The large garden is ideal for children as it's fully enclosed. Plenty of parking available.


Fanore is noted for itsmany walking trails through the burren hills. These trails are along ancient 'Green Roads' and are child friendly. Some of these walks such as 'Black Head Loop' and ' Caher Valley loop' are accessible from the house and the walks can vary from moderate to strenous. There are also guided walks available.

The Burren is home to a remakabley diverse and well preserved heritage, richly represented of every era from the Neolithic period onward. This heritage give us an insight the lives of the generations passed. Magnificent, evocative structures such as the 5,800 year old Poul Na Brone, portal tomb exemplify this heritage. The Burren also includes about 80 wedge tombs, over 500 ringforts, including the spectacular Caher Cummann, ancient cooking sights known as 'Fulacht Fia', ancient churches, holy wells and round towers.

The Flora of the Burren is famous all over the world because of its remarkable beauty, richness and diversity. Over 70% of Irelands native Flora is found in the Burren, including 24 of our 27 Orchid spiecies. The exuberant beauty of the burren Flora is matched by its intriguing nature, with artic-alpine plants growing beside mediterranean plants. The diversity of the plant life adds a splash of colour and vibrancy to the burren from early spring through to Autumn.

Doolin, a small village 14km's from Fanore has had a living musical heritage for many decades. Doolin today is internationally renowned for it's music. 3 Pubs, McGanns, McDermotts and O'Connors in Doolin have music all year round. Musicians both local and not so local play here nightly, joined by visiting musicians, every night has it's uniqueness. Many different styles and mixes of musical instruments are to be found. A session is an informal gathering of musicians. It is unrehearsed as each one is made up of different players.

Lisdoonvarna, a small town situated 15Km's from Fanore is renowned for the Lisdoonvarna Match making festival throughout September. Music sessions and dancing take place daily for the month.

There are a number of other small towns and villages in North Clare within easy commuting distance from the house.
