  • Exceeded our expectations by miles- lovely cottage!

    "Stayed one night here whilst travelling around Ireland with friends. Martin was a great host- very welcoming and friendly. The cottage completely exceeded our expectations- it's huge, very beautiful, filled with everything you could possibly need and the stocked fridge supplies and soup/sandwiches were a delightful surprise on arrival. The cottage has two good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms, two lounge areas and a large kitchen/dining area with its own fireplace. Martin had lit both fires for our arrival too which also a lovely treat. When our fire went out and we had trouble restarting it, Martin happily came over to relight it for us- very much appreciated! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this cottage to others and I look forward to staying again in future! Thanks Martin."

  • A Wonderful Stay

    "We are a group of 4 ladies in our 60's visiting Ireland for the first time. We stayed at The Silver Teal for 4 nights. We were met at the apartment by Liz. She gave us a tour of the premises and shared some recommendations for places to eat and tours that she felt we would find interesting. On our first day there was a shortage of hot water. We suspected that the apartment has been empty prior to our arrival as there was plenty for the subsequent 3 days. The beds were comfortable; plenty of towels and bed linens. A large basket of food was a surprise. The kitchen is large and very well equipped. We found the entire apartment very comfortable and welcoming. Within walking distance we found The Crane Pub. In the upstairs space there was a jam session every night beginning around 10 or 10:30. This was awesome! There were recitations, singing in the Irish language and musicians from around the world who came together. It is a very small space ; very lively but when someone decided to sing the entire place fell silent.... So respectful and appreciative . The apartment is in an ideal location (we did not rent a car); the pictures are accurate and we found it to be clean. We would recommend this apartment to anybody who does not have issues with mobility. The stairs leading to the apartment might be difficult for persons who have physical challenges."

  • 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 house was perfect for our family of 6. Very close to Cliffs of Moher, Alwee Cave and the Burren. Very nice fire place. Washer and dryer very helpful when staying in Ireland for more than 2 weeks. The views were great and had clear nights for star gazing. Info packet was extremely helpful for shopping, dining out and attractions."
