"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!!!"

"" We stayed in Clahane Lodge last week and we were blessed with good weather which made the stay very enjoyable but I must say that even if the weather was not kind, this house is a perfect retreat, well appointed and in a superb location.
The views are outstanding from the spacious living room and with the benefit of the large windows, you could observe the changing light scenarios and the different moods of the Atlantic.
The design of the house was very well thought out and has everything that one needs for a nice break. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the house has a modern sound system which really adds to the enjoyment.
We will be back - If we can find any vacant weeks!"

"Everything was so easy, booking, arriving, hospitality of Seamus and Mary, it all made for an extremely relaxing holiday despite the mixed interests of adults and children. The dogs chased swallows on the lawn, the children played on the go carts, the adults went on runs, walks, everyone had picnics, and that was just around the cottage.
We had great fun going to the Falconery and caves at Ballyvaughan, the Burren was just wonderful no matter where we went. It was just a wonderful break and absolutely perfect for a family. Five star, gold star, 10 out of 10."

"We had 19 family members from across the United States gather for a family reunion at Ballyvara House. It was the perfect venue for our large group ranging in age from 85 to 22. There are lots of accommodations that sleep 20 but very few which have 11 bedrooms which allowed all couples and singles to have their own room. We enjoyed the large lounge/bar area each evening and cooked most meals in the large commercial kitchen. The house is close enough to a Doolin that you can walk the path in the back of the house to the pubs and shopping. I would recommend Ballyvara House to anyone looking for a large rental home in County Clare."
