Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms (one queen, two twin), 3 full baths, sleeps 6

This beautiful home in Doolin, Ireland was built in 1998 as a traditional, thatched-roof, Irish cottage and contains all modern amenities.

Each of the bedrooms is en suite, with antique pine furniture. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the two guest rooms each have twin beds. The master bath has a bathtub and shower. The house has wireless access.

The Great Room has a two story fireplace, conveniently gas fired. There is a panoramic conservatory with 180 degree views, including Cecil B. Demille sunsets.

The cottage is well planted with a berm to the west, giving privacy and a profusion of flowering plants.

The view from the house was featured in the September 2007 issue of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. The striking Doonagore Castle, one of the most photographed castles in Ireland, is located immediately down the hill from the cottage and is framed by the conservatory windows. A round tower built c.1350, Doonagore Castle was entirely restored in 1975.

The cottage is surrounded by grazing cattle, lending another level of tranquility to the idyllic setting.

A circular driveway brings guests close to the front door, should there ever be inclement weather! We joke that our favorite occupation is sitting in the conservatory and watching the weather change.

When the cottage was being built, one of the builders suggested naming the cottage. He said we should name it Draiocht, which means a magical, marvelous place and it is.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved it! I used to think the Oregon coast was about the prettiest spot of this earth, but not any more. We had he most beautiful weather - every day - and just loved staying in your beautiful home. And that stove of yours - awesome. I do all the cooking for our gang and that was the first item in your book that I studied. Our whole time in Ireland was great. The Doolin area was a high point - and we really enjoyed our boat trip out to Inis Oirr and the cliffs of moher, and the walking tour of the Burren with Shane. We also went to Dysert O'dea and then I studied your book of the Irish Round Towers. Awesome. What a view from your conservatory windows! Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your home. One day we hope to return.

Dream Location!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home is in a dream location; a castle and the ocean is the view from your living room. Easy to find, but a house by itself without neighbors. Small village with Great restaurants and shopping close by. The home has everything that you need with large living spaces, a nice kitchen with all appliances, comfortable beds, in a location that looks like a post card. You will not be dissappointed.

We can not wait to we visit here again!

Best View in the Area!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough wonderful things about this rental. The most welcoming house filled with things to make all of their guests comfortable and at home - users manuals for appliances, rain jackets, umbrellas, books, binoculars, kitchen utensils, hygiene products, etc. The location is AMAZING with a non-stop, breathtaking view of Doonagore Castle, Doolin, and the wild Atlantic. The worst part of our stay was having to leave when our time was over.

A relaxing, and beautiful way to end our trip to Ireland fit with all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

The house in Doolin was everything we needed for our last stop on our trip around Ireland. The owner was kind enough to let us arrive a day early due to a bad experience at another rental and this house blew us away. It had all the comforts of home (coffee maker, tea kettle, ample towels, blankets, washing machine, hair dryer) and beautiful views of Doolin and the ocean. We went on beautiful hikes, spent time in Doolin, and had just a short drive to neighboring places to visit like Ballyvaughan, Fanore, Lisdoonvarna, and the Cliffs of Moher. Thank you to Elizabeth and the caretakers of the facility for making our stay so memorable!
