  • 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 !"

  • perfect beach cottage

    "My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Cozy Beach Cottage (aka: Clancy cottage) this past week. It was everything we expected: in a small town, clean and quaint with all necessary amenities and lots of nearby nature walks. We enjoyed three days and nights: walking down to the pub for a pint and fresh fish and chips, sleeping in and making breakfast at our leisure (fresh brown bread and eggs from the local convenient store--we even added the blackberries--freshly picked by us!--to our morning plates), and in the evening we cozied in the rocking chairs by warmth of the cast iron stove/fireplace and read our books or some of the Irish history papers left by previous guests while sipping tea. The town of Doolin is only about a 20/minute drive south, and is worth the drive for the traditional/ nontraditiinal Irish music. You will find a comfortable place to rest and unwind in this cozy cottage. Make sure, however, you bring enough cash...the pub doesn't accept credit cards and you don't want to miss out on their good Guinness (4 euros/pint) and the nearest ATM is about a 30 minute drive... The convenient store will take cards...but there is a minimum purchase. The cottage is right off the main road--but it is a small 'main' road that is infrequently traveled by cars. We mostly traveled by foot. The location really is perfect for a simple retreat/get away from busy life. We left feeling refreshed and hopeful that we will be able to return soon."

  • Outstanding Rental, Gorgeous Environs

    "David's cottage was a dream rental -- beautifully situated, impeccably maintained, close enough to everything but on a quiet road with little traffic. Amazing sunsets, lovely pastoral views of fields with rocks and rainbow-colored cows (one of my favorite things -- in the US, all cows in a herd tend to be the same color ... boring). Spent a week at the cottage inFanore during my birthday tour of County Clare (my namesake) and highly recommend this location as a jumping off point for day trips. If you visit, be sure to visit O'Donoghue's pub for some of the tastiest fish & chips ever. Cottage has a huge, private master BR with a sitting area, and a loft area upstairs perfect for kids."

  • Five Stars Are Not Enough for this Spectacular House in this Spectacular Location!

    "The Bridge House is warm, welcoming, comfortable and fully equiped. There are great views from every room. The bed rooms are all good size and the bathrooms are nicely appointed. Five of us were here for a week (sadly only a week, but we plan on returning). After a day out exploring our group could prepare dinner and sit around the kitchen table talking, eating and enjoying the views. We then retired to the living room, a warm fire, share photos and enjoy the music provided and plan our next day. Ana, the house caretaker, was kind and very helpful with all of our questions. The house is in a good location for exploring (or to just stay put and relax...think about curling up with a good book, a cup of tea and a fire). The local pub, O'Donohues, is a quick walk away. They have the best Guiness pour, fish and chips and staff (yes, we did a comparison of several other acclaimed pubs in the area). Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher and the fairy boats to the Aran Islands are about 1/2 hour drive. Galway is about 1-1/2 hour away. The Burren Perfumery on the way to Galway was a pleasent stop. Walkers, hikers and rock climbers will love the Burren. A good read on the area is Tony Kirby's "The Burren and Aran Islands, A Walking Guide". He also gives walking tours of the Burren. We booked a private tour with him and consider it one of the best things we did on our trip. GPS will be somewhat helpfull getting from Shannon Airport to Fanore and will help navigate the "round abouts" which can be confusing. GPS has its limitations, don't count on it exclusively. If you do get lost, the people are great, friendly and helpful."
