Beautiful views, clean, comfortable home away from home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. What a beautiful location overlooking the ocean and the Aran Islands... Awesome!! Central to everything in County Clare. The house was comfortable and well equipped, convenient to everything we wanted to see. We felt so fortunate to be able to stay there. Ann was a delight, so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. It was the perfect getaway to simply relax and enjoy! Just the two of us went his time, but would love to take the whole family in the future.
We all loved you rental. The roses were wonderful. All eight of us felt right at home. Tour of castle and meeting your son was great.
My third time at Gentian Cottage. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Ireland! Cozy, gorgeous views, quiet, relaxing, and Ann is simply the best in the world!
Cant waite to return
Gentian cottage is everything i asked for and more. Perfect location surperb cottage views are simply sublime. Hosts are always on hand if needed.
Wonderful home and host
Our group of 7 spent a week at Gentian Cottage and loved it. The home is beautiful, well appointed, and was fully equipped to accommodate our 17 month old. Ann was extremely helpful in securing a baby stroller for us and answering our endless questions. The cottage is a short drive to Doolin and Lisdoonvarna. Views are incredible from every room.
If you stay in the area and can complete a strenuous hike, I highly recommend the 5 mile cliff walk led by Pat Sweeney. It was the highlight of our trip and the absolute best views of the cliffs of Moher. We also really enjoyed our day trip to the Aran Islands. The food and live music in the local pubs is superb.
Everything was great
The house was just what we wanted. Ann was friendly and warm and made sure that we had everything we needed. She made us feel like family. We had a wonderful week at this location.
Our cottage is just off the R477 (Coast road to Fanore) Just past Ballinalacken Castle Hotel gates on your right hand side take the first road past the the gates on Right hand side and the cottage is situated half way up the hill 5th house on the right hand side.
