Eden Cottage Retreat - Stunning Views with Hot Tub!

Bedrooms 4
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Relax and unwind in an Idyllic Irish Retreat. This is the perfect Irish countryside cottage to explore Western Ireland!

Open the door. Eden Retreat wraps its arms around you from the moment you walk inside. This is a large, cozy home with all the modern amenities. Tucked on a hillside, trees dot the edges of the one-acre yard, with gardens, and the lush Irish countryside just beyond. Eden Retreat is an ideal hideaway for one or more couples traveling together. It’s also a great lodging for families to gather.

Eden consists of a lovely main home and a detached, little cottage with full bathroom. A 1,000 square foot covered deck surrounds the cottage, some covered for all weather, offering a fine outdoor retreat and seating for all! The hot-tub cottage is a cheerful, bright space featuring an indoor hot tub encased in sandstone. The cottage has its own bathroom with shower, and may be used as a fifth bedroom on request. A deluxe, full height, queen-sized (and very comfortable!) Aerobed will be supplied.

This home is the best of both worlds. Peaceful and quiet, Eden is tucked on the outskirts of Ennis, a charming and bustling market town, and the capital of County Clare. Only 20 minutes from Shannon Airport, 30 minutes from Clare’s rugged scenic coast, and 3 minutes from the M18 motorway linking Galway & Limerick, Eden’s location is ideal for exploring the best of Western Ireland.

The stunning, peaceful ambiance of Irish nature is one step outside your back door. A custom-paved patio, perfect for parties and lounging, awaits you. Gracious sandstone walls and wooden steps lead through terraced lawns and flower gardens.

Eden welcomes children of all ages! There is an extensive wooden play set with slide and swings in the large landscaped yard. Inside, kids can discover a variety of books, games and DVDs, as well as a Playstation2 console with many games.

Eden Cottage Retreat is nearby all major attractions on the west coast including: Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Aran Islands, The best traditional music, Bunratty Castle, Adare Village with thatched cottages, Cork & the Blarney Stone, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry, Beaches only 20 minutes away!

About The Owner

Ennis gets its name from the Irish word “inis” (island) because it is virtually surrounded by the River Fergus, a melodious presence throughout. The streets of Ennis are narrow and charming, and some do not allow cars. There are plenty of locals here—Ennis is no tourist trap—and you’ll hear voices that are raised in laughter or storytelling in bakeries and bookstores alike. The Friary at the bottom of Abbey Street was founded by the O’Briens in the 13th century. Many of its original features survive. It’s breath-taking and has a textured silence that speaks through the centuries.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose County Clare

But, the main attraction in Ennis is the locals’ love of traditional music. Every year on the month of May, Ennis hosts Fleadh Nua, an international celebration of Irish culture, and in November the Ennis Trad Festival is held. But traditional music of the highest quality is on display in the pubs of Ennis throughout the year. It often seems that those in town who can't sing or play an instrument are very much in the minority!

Ennis is located near all the best attractions in the West of Ireland including the Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Galway, Limerick, Cork, the Blarney Stone, the beautiful beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

Also, we can arrange a rental car, activities or other lodgings around the country should you wish to explore more of Ireland! We also can accept all major credit cards. The heating, electricity and cleaning fees are all part of the rental cost - there are no hidden charges. After years of working in the travel industry, we feel it is important to not charge anything extra!

Comfortable house in the countryside of Ennis!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Eden Retreat! It was a great central location to Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher and Galway. The hot tub was great after a long day of sightseeing. The beds were very comfortable and it was great to have the comforts of home. We were able to enjoy breakfast before we headed out each day and cooked in several evenings. It is also only 25 minutes from Shannon airport.

Perfect house to explore County Clare and more

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at Eden Retreat. The house is conveniently located just outside of Ennis and close to grocery stores and restaurants. Great base location to explore all that County Clare has to offer. Charlie, the neighbor's dog, came to visit a few times and every morning you will see the sheep grazing in the upper field behind the house. Mark the owner was very accommodating to work with over the months leading up to the trip.

What a dream!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! I had no idea what to expect when we first pulled up to the house around 10pm at night, but once we turned the lights on, we felt like we were at home (actually better than home.. I was sad to leave this house!). The hot tub room is well maintained and beautiful, it was by far our favorite part of the property. Our three young children loved all of the children's games and toys, and the beautiful fireplace made the rainy days so much more enjoyable. I can't wait to come back to this property!

The Hawkins Vacation of Joy 2014 - Ireland part

  • 4 of 5

What a super home for our family! We put 2,500 miles on a van in 16 days in Ireland. So, by the time we got to this great vacation home in Ennis, we we're ready for a quiet place to rest and enjoy some peace. We got that and more here! The hottub cottage IS our favorite place on the property. Very private and quiet place!

Very impressed with the way the house is laid out and its' efficiency. We certainly felt comfortable and honored to use this house on our Vacation of Joy!

Rent with confidence!

Ennis Treasure

  • 5 of 5

The Ennis Cottage Retreat was just as pictured with no surprises. While some of the rooms could use a coat of paint, the house was clean and neat! The house worked out well for our group of four and as an added bonus, we got a daily visit from a pup we named "Clare". We did have an issue with getting some of the lights to work and called on Tom who came over and got us working in no time!

I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to avoid the hustle and bustle of staying in city centers as it affords a quiet place with a good measure of privacy!
