About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms each with two twin beds, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The cottage is beautifully decorated with Irish antiques and all the modern amenities (with the exception of a television) to make for an enjoyable, relaxing stay. Curl up in front of one of two turf (peat) burning fires with one of the many books on Irish history, art, culture and literature. Or explore the rural, west coast region of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way with its many cliffs, beaches, farms, forests, caves and ruins to experience. The owners leave nothing to chance and provide their guests with extras such as boots, wax jackets, wool sweaters, backpacks, binoculars, riding hats so that every activity is within reach. Hiking, beach combing, cycling, horseback riding, spelunking, bird watching, fishing and golfing are just some of many activities to choose among.
At the end of the day, Doolin Pubs await the tired with lively music, good food and a pint or two.
The cottage has four bedrooms, all en-suite, with twin beds in each. So what will it be? A family trip to explore your Irish roots, a girls getaway or a guys golf trip, talking business over golf at Lahinch, Doonbeg and Ballybunion?
Fly overnight into Shannon Airport and be at the cottage within an hour.

This rural part of Ireland is deceiving. Upon first glance it may seem there is not a lot to do when in reality it is alive with more activities than one can fit into just one vacation. The basket over the phone is teeming with brochures of all the many local activities. Some of our favorite things to do are as follows:
• The Lahinch Golf Course is one of the great links courses in the world, so don’t miss it. It may be tough to get a tee time in the summer, so plan as far in advance as possible. The great course is called the Old Course. The Castle Course is across the street and easier to get on. It’s not much of a track but will do in a pinch. Ballybunion and Doonbeg are also just a short drive away.
• There are two nearby par-three courses, one just between Lahinch and Liscannor, the other in Doolin on the road to the ferry pier. There are many great hikes and walks, especially in the Burren. There are various maps and walking guides in the bookshelves, just right of the southern window.
• A leisurely drive through the Burren should include a visit to The Burren Centre, Kilfenora Cathedral and Crosses and a visit to Poulnabrone Dolmen. A guided tour is worth the effort. Call Mary Howard at 065 707 6100.
• The Doolin Cave is well worth a visit to see one of the world’s largest stalactites. Ailwee Cave is also an interesting visit. If only seeing one cave, make it The Doolin Cave.
• There is regular ferry service to each of the Aran Islands from Doolin pier from a variety of competing companies. On each island you can chose to hike, bike or take a horse drawn wagon tour. On a rough day it is sheer misery to cross to the Islands so only consider going on a nice day. Also consider a boat tour of the cliffs.
• The local pubs usually have good Irish music. You cannot go wrong with grabbing a pint at the Doolin pubs- McDermotts, McGanns and O’Connors after a dinner at home or out.
• Pat Sweeney is a local farmer who conducts an unforgettable Doolin Cliff Walk. The tour commences outside O’Connor’s Pub each morning at 10 am. Private tours that begin at the house can be arranged as well. Pat is extremely knowledgeable about the landscape, history and culture of the area and is a truly lovely person to spend time with.
• Bunratty Castle and Folk Park is fun with children. The castle is in sound condition and the theme village around it provides wonderful examples of the homes people lived in through out the area. The same can be said for a guided tour of Craggaunowen.
• Peter Williams runs the Mountain View Horse Riding Center in Lisdoonvarna. He can take you on one or two hour treks through the Lisdoonvarna countryside and, like Pat, is a pleasure to meet and get to know.
• Lahinch is a wonderful town for a stroll along the water front and shopping for Irish sweaters, pottery, jewelry and art. Doolin also has lovely shops for finding gifts for family back home.
