Keeps Getting Better - Year 3 Family Reunion for 32 at Ballyvara
"We have just come back from our 3rd family reunion at Ballyvara (and are working on a date for 2016). With 3 generations going from 4 to 83 years, Ballyvara caters for all our needs and more. 32 of us had a fantastic weekend - we walked, we talked, we ate and we drank. Some didn't even leave the grounds of the house as they were having too much fun where they were. The children cried when they left as they enjoyed it so much - and now we have 12 months of them asking, ' how long till we go back to the big house in Clare'!! Ballyvara has a great location, fantastic facilities and a brilliant athmosphere. It's not just the kids that are looking forward to next year...."

"Thank you Louise and Sean for making our vacation in Ireland so very special, relaxing and most of all homey! We had everything we needed and hoped for without ever asking for it. Louise welcomed us into her home truly as family would and we are so very thankful for that. We were a large group with 3 couples and 3 young children all under 5 years of age and our hosts were very understanding of our comfort and the needs of our children. They brought by scooters and ride-on toys for the children to enjoy. Donkeys to pet and a beautiful yard to run in.
They went out of their way to help us procure a spare tire for our rental car that we popped a tire on promptly upon leaving the airport. Thank you for that! Louise even stored some food in the fridge for us before our arrival and gave us lots of handy advice about local worthwhile activities and attractions.
The house was plenty big for all of us to spread out in and was in tidy shape upon our arrival. The backyard and river were lovely to enjoy for both kids and adults. The town itself is super relaxing and serene. Ideal spot for a tranquil holiday.
If we return to Ireland we would stay here again without a second thought.

"We were unable to stay at Ballyportry Castle as it was already booked, but the owner was so helpful, kind and prompt in her replies that I wanted to give the castle a positive review for customer service. I'm sure the owner gives the same amount of care to her castle as she does her customers, which would make it a truly wonderful place to stay!"

"This cottage was absolutely wonderful for our family of 6. There was plenty of space (there was even an extra bedroom we didn't use). It had everything we needed - a great kitchen, SPECTACULAR views, even a massage chair in the sun room! You can see the sea from your backyard, along with a beautiful field of flowers, and there are some ruins just next door. The owners were so helpful and came over whenever we had questions or needed any help. Doolin is great little town and has the best live music in the country! We were so happy with our decision to stay here and would do it again in a heartbeat! Hopefully we'll be back one day!"
