About Connie Tyrrell

Sean and I were born and raised in Co. Clare and Galway and have lived on this land for the last 28 years. This area of the Burren is so special to us for its music, beautiful walks, stunning coastline and warm friends and family. We would love to have you join the family on your next holiday to Ireland.

Connie Tyrrell purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Connie Tyrrell chose Clare

We both fell in love with the area before we met each other and by the time we did meet Sean had found and bought all two walls, a chimney and a half acre of wilderness. He had left it sit for a few years until I came along. Then together with help from good friends we slowly renovated the cottage. These days we are tackling the garden. To be honest the whole place is a labour of love. We are always planning and scheming about what needs doing next and what dreams we have for the old place.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the first thing that seems to appeal to our guests time and time again is the warm peaceful energy that the cottage and garden holds. The cottage has always been a home for creative people it is a place that feeds and inspires the imagination.

We are now offering some great added extras! Those of you who come to Co Clare to part take in traditional music school may be interested to learn that we can organize master classes in various instruments. Most of the teachers have a great knowledge of traditional music and have years of experience as both musicans and teachers. We are also introducing secret walking tour of the hidden Burren. These guided walks are lead by a women who can trace her Burren roots back eight generations. Her knowledge of the traditional methods of Farming and protecting this special area makes a walk a wonderful experience and a must for anyone who wants to get the inside track on Burren life past and present. Sometimes our roads leave a lot to be desired. Should you require a day off from driving the narrow road of the area we would be glad to provide a driver. We can either meet you at the airport or arrange to meet the driver here for a later date.

Cosy cottage with lovely owner !

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. House is very cosy and lovely. You need a car to move around the area. We took small day trips to Cliffs of Moher and Galway. Roads are narrow and they felt even more narrow because I had to drive on “wrong side of the road” ;)

The owner, Connie lives just next door and she is just a wonderful warm lady ! When we were in flu, she brought us some medicine (Jameson etc.)

Place is very peaceful almost only voices you can hear is birds and cows. All the furniture in house was good, especially I have to mention beds. They were great.

We really enjoyed those few days we spent in Aisling Cottage!

Thank You Connie !

It was everything we would have hoped. Cosy, gorgeous scenery, the most wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is delightful and very well equipped. Nearby towns have anything you could reasonably need. There are many lovely drives to make with a variety of striking scenery. The kindness of our hosts, Connie and Shaun, is unparelleled and will always be remembered. We felt very much at home in Aisling cottage and would recommend it to anyone. Our visit will be a happy memory for years to come.

We really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We felt very welcome in the unique house on the Wild Atlantic Way. It was a very good location for us to explore the cliffs and Galway. We also enjoyed the late evenings around the peat stove. The near by seafood restaurant was delicious. It was the best meal of our entire trip.

Lovely base to explore the Burren

  • 5 of 5

Kind, helpful hosts - greeted us with delicious homemade baking and lots of information. Pretty garden and lots of space to spread out in for our family of 4. The home is halfway between Ballvaughan and Kinvarra, so it was perfect to explore the Burren. Cliffs of Moher were not too far, nor was Galway. Quite a spectacular area.
