  • Spectacular

    "This is a wonderful new cottage with an traditional cottage feel. Wonderfully comfortable, with astounding views, near many attractions, but in a quiet rural location, overlooking the Atlantic and the Aran Islands."

  • Lisconnor County Claire Ireland

    "The house was perfect for our family of 6. Very close to Cliffs of Moher, Alwee Cave and the Burren. Very nice fire place. Washer and dryer very helpful when staying in Ireland for more than 2 weeks. The views were great and had clear nights for star gazing. Info packet was extremely helpful for shopping, dining out and attractions."

  • Amazing Cottage- Ireland at it's best!

    "We just had a wonderful family holiday in Fanore Holiday Cottages where we stayed for a week. When we arrived our car had just broken down, but John and Ann offered to help us out with transport out to the shops etc until we got the car fixed. That was such a lovely Irish welcome,and completely unexpected! (and especially welcome as it was all a bit stressful at the time!) The cottage was really well equipped, and nicely laid out, with more than enough space for two adults, and two teenagers. There was also a very handy BBQ available, we used this a lot because the weather was gorgeous. There is a fire (which was fully stocked with turf when we arrived), which was really lovely for the evenings. It's funny, the weather was really warm, but a turf fire at night made the room so welcoming. We all sat around it in the comfy armchairs for hours (after all the walking and exploring we were wrecked!)....Lots of family chats in the evening there. The cottages are situated pretty much in the middle of Fanore (apparently the longest village in Ireland!), with amazing sea views (and sunsets/sunrises) and spectacular views over the Burren mountains, You can even see the Aran Islands in the distance (you can travel to them by boat from Doolin, which is a great day out. We visited Inis Oirr, saw a Minke whale on the way, as well as the local dolphin, who was hanging out by the pier. It was a great trip.). There is a pub with great food which is easily accessible from the cottages (O'Donoghues), which also does traditional Irish music. It is close to Doolin Village, which also does great Traditional Irish music sessions (a very easy drive from the house) You can also walk to Fanore beach which is one of the loveliest beaches in the West Coast of Ireland. The local Collie Dog even visited us for a few nights , which was quite charming (as were the resident cows in the field next door). There are also great walks in the area, one of which starts just above the cottages and leads over the mountains. All in all it was a fantastic holiday, and we're looking forward to coming back !"

  • Picturesque and quaint

    "We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay in Ballyvaughan! We fell in love with everything about this quaint, little village, including the cottage. It was the best home base and centrally located which allowed us to have incredible day trips with a comforting home to return to at the end of each day. The cottage had everything we needed...with even more than we could have imagined. We were so lucky to have spent a week in Ireland at a time where they had the best weather. Sitting in the yard, facing Galway Bay with a glass of wine, watching the sunset, the antics of gulls, swallows, terns and our small "herd" of donkeys brought a peaceful closing to each day. Each morning brought us a spectacular sunrise over the bay. We definitely would like to return and highly recommend this experience to everyone. Highly recommend An Fulacht Fia as an exceptional dining experience, a bike ride on the Aron Islands, a guided tour of the Burren's by Shane Connelly, a night of trad session at The Greene's with Sean Tyrrell, a view of the Cliff's of Moher, Aillwee Cave and the Birds of Prey.....just a few of the highlights. Take a day to drive along the Wild Atlantic Way and be prepared to stop in many charming villages and pubs as well as shops that carry authentic local wool sweaters, scarves, throws, socks and many food items. Of course, the requisite Irish Coffee and beer is a must!"
