Eden Cottage Retreat - Stunning Views with Hot Tub!

Bedrooms 4
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 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 Ennis

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!

Lots of space and very responsive

  • 4 of 5

Mark was very informative upon our arrival. The house has tons of space and a great lot. Unfortunately, when we arrived the heat didn’t work and the house was REALLY cold. Anna was quite responsive to fix it the first day and when it went out the second time brought in a repair person. The house has some plaster work that needs to be fixed and it is showing some signs of wear and tear. Overall it was a good location and a lot of space for the four of us.

Wonderful house in great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 adults & a 2 yr old) loved Eden Cottage. Mark was a pleasure to work with and responded quickly to questions. The house was spacious, yet cozy and a great place to relax after a day of traveling. The .hot tub was an added bonus for relaxing. Located a short 20 min. drive from Shannon airport, the house is close to the center of Ennis and within a reasonable driving distance to the Cliffs of Moher and other places of interest. We loved seeing the sheep in the pasture up the hill and the daily visits from a sweet dog, Charlie.

Eden Cottage was a great fit for our family and our needs and would definitely stay there again if we visit the area.

Beautiful spacious home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family of 5 (kids ages 12, 9 & 4). The house is very spacious and super comfortable and has all the amenities that a family could need or want. The kids enjoyed playing in the yard and LOVED our daily visits from the neighbor's dog Charlie - they would drop everything and run outside to pet him. We used this location as a home base for day trips to Galway, Cliffs of Moher, and Bunratty Castle. The town of Ennis is close by and wonderful to explore - lots of great places to eat. Quiet neighborhood, perfect for families and great home base in order to be able to explore more of Ireland's west coast.

Perfect for extended family groups

  • 5 of 5

Eden Cottage Retreat was the perfect place for a family group to stay. Larger than it looks in the pictures, convenient to Ennis and the M-18, everything we needed was there and working. Hot tub a terrific bonus after a day of exploring. Charlie the neighbor dog was a welcome visitor.

Great house in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Easy to get to from Shannon airport and then we did day trips out west and the environs - none of which was too long of a drive. House was very well equipped and comfortable. Kids loved the hot tub. Fabulous week
