On this floor there is also a comfortable sitting room with seating for 6 people, and a bedroom with bunks (sleeping two persons) The well equipped kitchen looks to the east over the Burren hills. Upstairs the double bedroom and delightfully decorated twin room exudes a warmth all of their own. Also on this floor is the bathroom, which has recently been refurbished.

Touring the area: To spend some time in this unique Burren landscape is to experience the delight of the region, timeless, austere beauty of hills, valley, sky and sea. From May to September the colours of the landscape change as plants, flowers and the beauty of wild butterflies mammals and bird life adds to this unique place.

Sonas holiday cottage is situated in the village of Fanore on the "Wild Atlantic Way", which is in the heart of one of Ireland’s greatest natural glories, The Burren. A green road walking route, The Burren Way, which begins in Ballyvaughan, twists

its way past historic sites, areas of outstanding beauty passing by the house to finish in Lahinch, which boasts a world-class golf course and some of the country’s best surfing. Sonas is in the perfect location for touring the West of Ireland and the Shannon region, perhaps taking a ferry from Doolin, the spiritual home of traditional music in Ireland to visit the Aran Islands.
