  • Fantastic Place For Family Gathering

    "This is a continuation of a prior review... Ballyvara is within walking distance of several great music pubs in Doolin and is very convenient to the Cliffs of Moher (in fact, there is now a great walking trail from the edge of Doolin all the way to the Cliffs). The walk into Doolin is about 3/4 of a mile, normally along a narrow Irish country road that must be shared with speeding Irish cars (there is a redundancy or two there somewhere), but Becky’s husband has laid out a path through the fields that allows you to avoid much of the road. Bring a flashlight for nighttime walking, whether it is the road or the field. The location is also very convenient to the Burren and for day trips to Galway and even to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and Limerick. If you go to Galway, take the coast road going or coming. The scenery is worth it. We highly recommend Ballyvara House!"

  • Lovely property!

    "As a group of 5 women visiting Ireland for the first time we could not have picked a better home! It was huge and just like the pictures depict. Rita could not have been a lovelier hostess, thank you for the yummy apple pie! The house itself sits right outside of Ennis, just a few minutes drive. It is a quiet property with easy access to the highway, making sightseeing much easier. We found having a bedroom each after a long day was a nice touch. Each room has a shower, and then there is another separate bathroom with a tub. Lots of room to spread out. Every morning we would have breakfast in the kitchen then hit the road. Rita was extremely easy to work with prior to the trip, promptly answering all emails. (Sorry, Rita, that I sent so many questions!!) This home greatly enhanced our trip to Ireland and I would happily stay there again and recommend it to friends!"

  • Only One Regret... I Wish I Stayed Longer!!!

    "This cottage is in a perfect setting and provided a true “home away from home feeling”. The only regret I have is that I was only able to stay one night as I, and my beautiful girlfriend, were visiting Ireland and were on a self-guided tour putting us in a new and exciting place each night (although I admit my best night of sleep was here). Fortunately the 2 days (1 night) spent in the cottage and in the area was packed filled of highlights. We went surfing in Lahinch (only 3 miles away) for the first time and had an unforgettable time with our instructor – I laughed so hard it hurt my sides more than the wipeouts! After an exhausting afternoon, it was delightful to relax in Mike and Kathy’s cottage with some fresh cheese, a loaf of bread, and a bottle of wine picked up from a local establishment. Later in the evening we were able to join some newly made friends to celebrate my birthday before retiring for the evening. The next morning we headed out again on our journey stopping at the Cliffs of Moher (ridiculously close) before enjoying the rest of what Ireland had to offer. From the views of the family room, to the cleanliness of the entire cottage, to the comfort of the bed (just like I was at home), this place is simply exquisite."

  • Peace & Quiet with Lots of Luxury

    "We spent 2 magnificent weeks at Corlea House. The house was luxuriously appointed and equipped with everything one could possibly need on holiday. Vincent and Mary who manage the house made us very welcome and ensured that we were thoroughly briefed on all the equipment in the house. To ensure that we had no difficulty finding the property Vincent and Mary met us at a local hotel and led us to Corlea House. The views from the house across Lough Graney were spectacular and never boring. The colours of the countryside continually changed with the weather (and that changed a lot!). On a good day The Burren and Galway Bay were visible. There's lots to see aand do in the local area. Bunratty Castle, the Lough Derg Drive, The Burren and the Cliffs of Moher to mention just a few. Be sure to visit Pepper's Bar (Sunday & Wednesday are Irish music nights) We have no hesitation in recommending this excellent vacation rental"
