About Joan and Brian

Joan and Brian live in Oakville in Canada and have 3 wonderful children with our youngest in University! Brian grew up 20 miles/ 30 kms from Soheen and visited Lahinch every Sunday as a child and vacationed there every summer. Lahinch is a very special place for us and just thinking of there reduces our stress! Soheen is a house that we never can stay there too long and is one that we get so excited every time we stay there. We built this house with the best of materials and appliances. It is the house we intend to retire in.

Joan and Brian purchased this bungalow in 1996

Why Joan and Brian chose County Clare

Soheen (or in Gaelic is Súichín) is a very special place for us and it lives up to its name which means 'a place of rest'. The review are spectacular and we just love spending time there when we can! We built this house with the greatest care and attention to maximize comfort and be a restful house in keeping with the surrounding natural area.

What makes this bungalow unique

We, like our guests, that visit our home just love the atmosphere in the house - the wonderful finish which makes it most comfortable. Large open kitchen with wood floor and a perfect place to relax and enjoy the views of the countryside. The living room with natural stone fireplace which is just a perfect place to read a book and take it easy. The master bedroom with its en-suite and has a fireplace to give it that real Irish feel. The large gallery area on the 2nd floor which has a desk to sit and read and do yoga or stretching exercises! The main bedroom upstairs which has wonderful views and the feel that you are in another world and of course the children's room which has 2 bunk beds (3 singles and a double) and ! A place of rest and rejuvenation !

Soheen was a great house for us - loved the area and the house was terrific. Great kitchen, beautiful yard, and a couple of sweet dogs that would visit us ( my son loved them). Highly recommend-

Wonderful home and a great base for our two weeks in County Clare

  • 5 of 5

This is a sound , comfortable, clean and secure home near Lahinch . There is a rocky private beach a walk down the road, lovely sea views from the home, privacy but near neighbors and an excellent restaurant Barrtra Seafood Restaurant. ( Make reservations ahead of time , they book up ) The biggest plus is the neighbor's dog Ben , a very friendly Beagle/Terrier mix who will gladly show you how to get to the beach or hang out with you on the lawn on sunny days. Everything you need is supplied, and previous quests left dry goods, like paper products and spices, so we did not have to buy all those things. The owners are great with getting back with questions , and have set up a wonderful home. Things to note the house is not in walking distance to town, and the pull out couch is in the kitchen not the living room. We were a group of all single women, so I think having one of the rooms with twin beds instead of one double, or the pull out couch or a full couch in the living room . This would help groups like ours. This house was a great base for our two weeks in County Clare. Lahinch is a great town and a fun town, with a great beach, restaurants and pubs . There are other great towns close to the house, like Ennistymon, Liscannor, Doolin, Lisdoonvarna, Milton Mawbay, and only 1/2 hr from Ennis. Its only about 20 mins from the Cliffs of Moher. Also to note if you have friends who are using a caravan, there is a park close by.

Fabulous house with everything in it you could want. It it kept extremely well.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. Lahinch is a beautiful place and this house has everything you could wish for in a beautiful setting of well landscaped gardens and views of the sea. All normal consumables that you could need were provided. Quality of beds, linen, towels, showers, kitchen utensils, kitchen supplies etc were all top class. The owners are very responsive to any issues that may arise. Everything was clean, tidy and very well maintained. As it is in a lovely location a few km outside Lahinch, you do.need a car for all travel even into Lahinch

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to Lahinch in Ireland! The cottage was quite lovely and in a very nice location. Very clean and had everything we needed (and more)! Had a great time hiking the trail of the Cliffs of Moher. I would definitely recommend this to others as a great place to stay while in Ireland! The owners also respond very quickly to any questions.

Lovely cottage and setting

  • 5 of 5

A few minutes out of Lahinch this cottage is both convenient and remote, a nice combination. Clean, spacious and well appointed with a view over fields down to the water, what is not to like.

Lovely home and wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited upon arrival to see this lovely house, amazing views, quiet secluded location and beautiful yard. Inside was well decorated, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed meals around the large kitchen table, cooking in the spacious kitchen and sleeping in comfortable beds with amazing ocean and farm field views. Lahinch is a great little seaside town perfectly situated near some of the most spectacular sites in Ireland. Being just a bit outside of the city was perfect for spending some time with friends, but close enough to enjoy sightseeing, shopping and a fun meal at O'Looney's.

Plenty of room for eight!
