"Highly recommend Heron Cottage! Was a fantastic home, surrounded by peace and beauty with a lot to do...from long walks, to the local pub to the fantastic Russell Gallery and neighboring towns. We stayed at Heron Cottage for the week, and it was perfect! Got to see enough, but also incredibly relaxing. Gerry and his wife are kind and on top of taking care of everything. Would LOVE to get back to this location!!"

"Our family of 4 (parents & 2 teen girls) loved our week stay at Bridge House before heading to Limerick for a family wedding.
By itself Bridge House & Fanore are a beautiful, scenic and storybook location! The views are incredible and the house is very charming and just as shown here. It is clean, well appointed, cozy but with plenty of room and had everything we needed. The fire place was a treat to have on one chilly rainy day. Thanks to Mike & Joan for stopping in from Stone House next door to help us get it lighted!
Fanore is a magical place. Even just staying in the house/town would be a great vacation. But we found it is an excellent location for easy day trips. This was the first country vacation for our family and we were a little worried that it would be too remote and maybe not be enough to keep our teens busy. It ended up being one of our favorite vacations. Fanore's peaceful quiet allowed us to rest & relax. Having 2 restaurants and the small market within walking distance would have been all we needed for a week. We really enjoyed walking to O'Donoghues pub (the owner Pat gave us a fresh loaf of brown bread when we met and said we were at Bridge House!). We had several great meals there and enjoyed a trad music night as well. The market had what we needed including a coffee machine that came in handy on early mornings. The walk to the beach along the old road is spectacular.
We are pretty lazy travelers but were able to cover a lot of ground. We toured/hiked the Burren, visited the farmer's market & tea rooms in Ballyvaughn, Cliffs of Moher, had dinner and shopped in Doolin a couple of time, also had dinner in Lisdoonvarna, visited the Perfumery, saw lots of area ruins, spent time in Kinvara and Galway. A must-do is pony trekking with Peter Williams of MountainView Stables near Lisdoonvarna. Peter is fab! We did a 2 hour mountain trail ride but will be back for a beach ride! Peter's place is close by and easy to find, the ponies are lovely and we really enjoyed our guide. They accommodated our beginners as well as letting the experienced in our group ride ahead for some cantering along the trails. We ran into Peter a couple of times post-ride at O'Donoghues and it was like running into an old friend. If you want to see the area on horseback - Mountain View is the place to go!
Ana the caretaker was helpful and friendly. Thanks to Mike & Joan for all of their great suggestions and hosting us for a glass of wine at Stone House!"

"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."

"This house made our family trip to Ireland magical!!! Waking up to the views of Doonagore Castle, the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher was absolutely amazing!!! The house is a very nice modern house that was spacious enough for us to spread out with all the modern conveniences a house with teenagers need. The house was clean and well furnished, the water pressure was great, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen has all the modern appliances one could ask for, the laundry facilities made it possible for us to pack lightly which left room in our luggage to bring back lots of purchases we made while exploring the west coast of Ireland. After coming back from our daily excursions we were able to take walks down to the Cliffs of Moher walking trail since it was light out until 11:00 PM!!! The rental manager also great and very helpful. I can't say enough good things about our experience at Castlewood. This house was perfect!!! My only regret is not staying longer!!!"
