What makes this House unique

The 2,500 km driving route passes through nine counties and three provinces, stretching from County Donegal's Inishowen Peninsula to Kinsale, County Cork, on the Celtic Sea coast. Along the route there are places and attractions which have been designated as points of interest for travellers. The Burren Way Trail is a trail through the Barony of the Burren which forms the northern part of County Clare, overlooking Galway Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The word Burren comes from Boireann, or stony district, and refers to the 130 square kilometres of spectacular terraced carboniferous limestone hills and valleys that characterise the area. The highest hill, Slieve Elva is a mere 344 metres above sea level, but the south-western end of the Burren bedrock drops into the sea at the Cliffs of Moher which rear more than 200 metres vertically out of the sea.

                                                            Beautiful home in a fantastic location

                                                            Daniel V.

                                                            This home was recommended to us by our parents who had stayed here in the past. The home is beautiful and very well maintained. It has all the modern conveniences and excellent views of the Burren and the Atlantic Ocean. The host John and Adrienne were delightful and very helpful for local information. This location served us very well for an excellent tour of the Wild Atlantic Way, and also was not to far from other major tourist locations such as Bunratty and Kilkenny. Only recommend would be is to be prepared for cold temperatures, we found the weather to be pretty harsh still in mid-March, so bring warm clothing. Thank you so much for being part of our wonderful vacation!

                                                            Such a peaceful place to unwind and relax! A little bit of heaven on earth!

                                                            We loved our week at this house! It’s perfectly located to experience the peace and serenity of our favorite area in Ireland. Our walks were so nice and the views of the countryside and ocean so picturesque. Then when we wanted to take off, there were plenty of places to go enjoy. The house is lovingly decorated and set up to provide all the amenities you need. We loved how perfectly clean everything was. Highly recommended!!

                                                            I came to Ireland with my four adult sons. My great-great grandparents and my great grandmother came to Michigan, USA from Ireland. I chose this location because of the outdoor adventures offered. I didn't know the real adventures were on the one lane roads! We were entertained each day within a 10 mile radius of this lovely home.

                                                            This home is perfect for a convient home-base. Beautifully decorated with

                                                            tile and wood, inviting furniture and three living areas (even grown sons need some separation at times, ages 45 to 55 years). Some things never change.

                                                            The McMahons were so accommodating with my many questions and needs. Perfect hosts!

                                                            We would all return to this home if visiting Ireland.

                                                            Fabulous, clean, tastefully decorated. Everything you could possibly need.

                                                            Awesome views and sunsets. Great location. Easy access to towns for music, dining and Pubs. Also the ferries to Aran Islands and coastal road are a must. Highly recommend! !!

                                                            Cosy cottage with beautiful views

                                                            Lovely cottage with everything you need for your stay. Walks from the door too! Wifi is good. Don't miss a trip to the Aran Islands!

                                                            Beautiful place to stay

                                                            Mary Anne P.

                                                            Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much. The cottage was very nice and comfortable. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed the visit by the horses in the mornings. We were very close to area attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, great music on Doolin and Lisdoonvarna, and boat rides to the Aran Islands. We ran late arriving to the cottage and got a little lost as we went through town. John was very gracious and accommodating. Thank you! We recommend staying at the cottage and look forward to a return visit.


                                                            Clare, Co. Clare, Ireland

                                                            Flaggy Shore is half a mile of coastline at Finvarra, County Clare. The shore is at its most beautiful on an evening after a light rain, with the setting sun above. This is when the soft limestone rock, wet from the rain and eroded into fantastic rounded shapes by the sea, reflects all of the colours of the sunset like a giant mirror in the landscape. Small wonder that this place inspired the late Irish poet and Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney.
