  • Amazing views

    "What an amazing cottage. We instantly felt comfortable and at home. Kathy left the best booklet there for some local insight. It never steered us wrong. Also an excellent jumping off point for many point of interests. Cliffs of Moher and the Burren and and close to Doolin. We will definitly be back and stay here again."

  • 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 !"

  • The Hawkins Vacation of Joy 2014 - Ireland part

    "What a super home for our family! We put 2,500 miles on a van in 16 days in Ireland. So, by the time we got to this great vacation home in Ennis, we we're ready for a quiet place to rest and enjoy some peace. We got that and more here! The hottub cottage IS our favorite place on the property. Very private and quiet place! Very impressed with the way the house is laid out and its' efficiency. We certainly felt comfortable and honored to use this house on our Vacation of Joy! Rent with confidence! The Hawkins Family Fairbanks, Alaska USA"

  • Couldn't have chosen a better home away from home!

    "We've just returned from three weeks in beautiful Ireland, two of which we spent at Aisling Cottage. We couldn't have chosen a better spot to get to know the "real" Ireland. On arrival we were met by Seán and shown through the cozy cottage. Connie had baked a delicious cake and a loaf of brown bread to welcome us and we immediately felt at home. We didn't lack for anything while there and found it very comfortable and suitable to our needs. Connie and Seán are wonderful hosts and checked with us regularly to make sure that all was well. They were also an invaluable resource for the best places to see in the Burren. Don't miss a trip to Hazel Mountain Chocolates - delicious! They also do great guided hikes on the Burren, which we participated in, as well as doing several on our own in areas recommended by Connie. Absolutely breathtaking views from the top! Another highlight was our trip to the Burren Perfumery where they make all natural creams, soaps, perfumes, etc. One of my personal favorite times was walking down to the water in the morning with my cup of coffee and returning with my cup full of the delicious blackberries, which were in season. If I was lucky, I was able to time it so that I could watch the local farmer bringing in his herd of 120 cows for their morning milking. Soooo peaceful... Seán is a well known Irish folk singer and we were lucky enough to see him perform in Kinvarra, the nearby town. We were hoping to catch him again at his regular Wednesday performance at Greenes in Ballyvaughn, but unfortunately for us he had to leave on a USA tour. Maybe next time! Aisling Cottage is very well situated to see many of Ireland's best attractions. We went to the Cliffs of Moher, took a boat-ride out to the Aran Islands, toured other castle and monastery ruins, went to a great sheepdog herding demonstration and Caherconnell fort tour, drove around Dingle Peninsula and did an overnight trip around the Ring of Kerry. We also went to a medieval dinner at the castle in Kinvarra. All in all we had a very busy, but extremely enjoyable time. Thank you for everything Connie and Seán - we couldn't be happier with our choice of your wonderful home!"
