Fanore house description

For anyone who has ever been to Ireland, you know how truly relaxing it can be. But for those of you have been to the West coast you have also experienced the true magic of this country. This house is in a remarkable location with the Aran Islands in front of you and the Burren behind. Virtually every window has a postcard view. And although the views are spectacular, the house has a warmth all its own. The moment you step in the front door, you will feel like you are home. Maybe that's why we have so many people come back year after year. Or maybe it's the truly wonderful friends we have in the area who make you feel more like family than a visitor.

Three of the rooms have king size beds with bathrooms en suite. The fourth room has two twin beds with a bathroom just outside the door. The living room has a gorgeous hand carved stone fireplace and two-story ceilings with skylights.

For those of you who wish to leave the house you will find abundant entertainment. There is a gorgeous sand beach just down the road. For the golfers in your group there is a world-class golf course just a few towns over in Lahinch. Also in Lahinch you will find some of the country's best surfing. (And, although Fanore is not yet reknowned for its surfing, there is a surf school every summer.) And for those of you music lovers, Doolin is just one town over and is renowned for its traditional Irish music in addition to many incredible restaurants. But for those who wish to explore Fanore, you will find amazing scenic walks and some of the best angling in the country.

The house is just up the road from O'Donohue's Pub and a small grocery shop. Both are within walking distance.
