  • What a find!

    "For the past 15 years we (a group of 4 couples) rent a home to spend a week together. We have not before experienced somewhere like this place. To look at the photos it seems good, but in real life it is much better. The living space is large and open, and more a hotel than house! The hosts are helpful but not intrusive. The maintenance of the place is spotless, and it's very functional. The location was great. We got to play golf at Adare, made a trip Galway and to the Cliffs of Moher, to Killarney, and explored local walks too. We bought fresh food at the Saturday morning market in the village, and ate super pizza nearby too. There is a beautiful park in the village, with adult gym equipment that kept some of us feeling fit! We ate out in some nice places- and too much Guinness, and a friendly bar owner in Mc Namara’s in Scarriff was memorable! We also cooked in using the well-equipped kitchen, herbs from the garden and the big wood stove was great for evening. Definitely we will be back!"

  • Five Stars Are Not Enough for this Spectacular House in this Spectacular Location!

    "The Bridge House is warm, welcoming, comfortable and fully equiped. There are great views from every room. The bed rooms are all good size and the bathrooms are nicely appointed. Five of us were here for a week (sadly only a week, but we plan on returning). After a day out exploring our group could prepare dinner and sit around the kitchen table talking, eating and enjoying the views. We then retired to the living room, a warm fire, share photos and enjoy the music provided and plan our next day. Ana, the house caretaker, was kind and very helpful with all of our questions. The house is in a good location for exploring (or to just stay put and relax...think about curling up with a good book, a cup of tea and a fire). The local pub, O'Donohues, is a quick walk away. They have the best Guiness pour, fish and chips and staff (yes, we did a comparison of several other acclaimed pubs in the area). Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher and the fairy boats to the Aran Islands are about 1/2 hour drive. Galway is about 1-1/2 hour away. The Burren Perfumery on the way to Galway was a pleasent stop. Walkers, hikers and rock climbers will love the Burren. A good read on the area is Tony Kirby's "The Burren and Aran Islands, A Walking Guide". He also gives walking tours of the Burren. We booked a private tour with him and consider it one of the best things we did on our trip. GPS will be somewhat helpfull getting from Shannon Airport to Fanore and will help navigate the "round abouts" which can be confusing. GPS has its limitations, don't count on it exclusively. If you do get lost, the people are great, friendly and helpful."

  • Best of the Best!

    "LOOK NO FURTHER; STAY HERE! What a WONDERFUL place to stay! Location is perfect; centrally located. No need for a car and walking is the best way to see the city and sights. The flat is just as described and as shown in the pictures. Beds are comfortable and the flat is spotless (Thank you Maria!). Communication with the owner was prompt and upfront; very refreshing. We were a party of 4 at this flat; my husband and I with my best friend and her 14 yr old. Having 2 bathrooms was a lifesaver in the morning. The Wi-Fi was a blessing, not only for the 14 yr old, but for us old folks too. It allowed us to keep in touch with home as needed. No need for tour books as there are plenty of books in the flat. The kitchen has everything you need. It is wonderful to not have to leave the flat for breakfast or coffee. All of the appliances are in good order and having the American-style washer and dryer was a great surprise! The flat is the perfect place to retire after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. Lots of shopping and pubs near. It is quiet at night and located overlooking the interior courtyard of the building. The owner provides very specific instructions about EVERYTHING prior to arriving at the flat. The owner also provides a book that provides additional information regarding the flat, VERY HELPFUL and appreciated. It takes all of the guessing out of the start of the vacation. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this flat to everyone. Cross the bridge and you are in the Temple Bar area, Trinity College, Grafton for shopping and lots of eating options. The Tesco and other markets are near. If you don’t want to walk, there are bus stops in front of the flat and if you want to do the touristy thing, you can take the Hop-on-Hop-off bus right in front of the flat. One last suggestion about Dublin, don’t miss the GUINESS factory tour, definitely worth visiting! Overall, having stayed at the flat made our vacation that much better since we did not have to think about or worry about our lodging. If we return to Dublin, this is where I am staying."

  • perfect beach cottage

    "My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Cozy Beach Cottage (aka: Clancy cottage) this past week. It was everything we expected: in a small town, clean and quaint with all necessary amenities and lots of nearby nature walks. We enjoyed three days and nights: walking down to the pub for a pint and fresh fish and chips, sleeping in and making breakfast at our leisure (fresh brown bread and eggs from the local convenient store--we even added the blackberries--freshly picked by us!--to our morning plates), and in the evening we cozied in the rocking chairs by warmth of the cast iron stove/fireplace and read our books or some of the Irish history papers left by previous guests while sipping tea. The town of Doolin is only about a 20/minute drive south, and is worth the drive for the traditional/ nontraditiinal Irish music. You will find a comfortable place to rest and unwind in this cozy cottage. Make sure, however, you bring enough cash...the pub doesn't accept credit cards and you don't want to miss out on their good Guinness (4 euros/pint) and the nearest ATM is about a 30 minute drive... The convenient store will take cards...but there is a minimum purchase. The cottage is right off the main road--but it is a small 'main' road that is infrequently traveled by cars. We mostly traveled by foot. The location really is perfect for a simple retreat/get away from busy life. We left feeling refreshed and hopeful that we will be able to return soon."
