Awesome Ashbrook Farm
Awesome Ashbrook Farm
The Internet does not do this property or it's owner justice. When we decided to take a family trip to Ireland we scoured the VBRO website for a home base. What we found was a home away from home and a host who was gracious, kind, welcoming and knowledgeable.the property far exceeded our expectations for comfort and Rosie and Minnie (the wonderful donkeys) always came calling to welcome us back when we returned from our travels. We toured most of western Ireland and even attended American Day at the Limerick Race Course. We also traveled as far as Kerry, to Blarney Castle as well as the Cliffs of Mohr, Doolin Cave and Lahinch, where we ate many a meal at the local pubs. We would highly recommend this rental to any and all since ther is enough space to accommodate a large family comfortably. We plan to return one day soon to Ireland and when we do we will surely reserve space at Ashbrook Farm.

Our family vacation
Our family vacation
All seven of us cannot say enough about how lovely this home and property was for our family vacation in August 2013. The location is perfect for visiting the surrounding area, including Doolin, Lahinch, The Burren, The Cliffs, and the Aran Islands. It also would be great as a home base for longer day trips to Galway and Kerry. The donkeys are a plus; even for those of us who have never loved a donkey before, you may be surprised at how attachable they are! The home is meticulously kept, clean, and has every amenity needed for making family meals, country walks, cozy fires, quiet reading and family time. We had plenty of bedrooms, living areas, and bathrooms for 7 (there are 4); the photos do not capture how spacious the rooms are, nor the fabulous fireplaces. We meant to take some additional ones to share with the owner but missed our opportunity to take them. The village of Ennistymon is charming and the savory galettes & crepes at Oh La La cafe should not be missed. The large grocery store at the edge of town is excellent, and everyone was very friendly. They have great wine selections and everything we needed to cook for our large family. We also ate out a lot in the pubs. We all think McDermott's in Doolin makes the best stew! We also bought fresh produce from the farmer's markets lining the street on select days. FYI: Driving is doable but takes some accommodation----they drive fast but extremely well. Just plan to focus on driving only (no coffee or snacking while driving) and select smaller cars instead of larger ones. We had two cars for our group vs a van....and that makes it easier to negotiate the tighter road allowances than what we have in the US. Cash (Euros) is easy to obtain at the ATM's and also many pubs will allow you to get cash back on your charges if you ask. We made lots of great memories at this home as well as a very wonderful new friend. I would be remiss if we did not make clear how lovely and helpful our host was in helping us get here (it helps to be escorted the first time in---thank you!) and giving us lots of good information about the area. She is an outstanding host and someone with whom we hope to remain connected. :) Yes, we hope to return, and yes: We are recommending this home to all we know who are interested in visiting Ireland. We are so thankful that this family has opened this home to share with others ~ B
