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.

                          Sonas holiday cottage is situated in the village of Fanore which is in the heart of one of Ireland’s greatest natural glory, 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.

                          Other Activities: For those of you who are music lovers, Doolin (10 miles) is renowned for its traditional Irish music.
