Pollclabber cottage, a thoroughly modern reconstruction of an old cottage is near Doolin and Lisdoonvarna yet located in a very peaceful rural setting. It is ideally located close to the Wild Atlantic Way, Cliffs of Moher, Lahinch golf courses, Burren Way walks, cycles and horse rides. The Burren is a unique limestone area with rare flora which mainly flower in May. The area is full of megalithic tombs, ancient castles and churches, monuments abound. Lisdoonvarna is host to a matchmaking festival in September and Doolin has wonderful traditional Irish music in the pubs in the evening time. The Cliffs of Moher, whether you visit them by road or by walking trail are truly one of the local wonders, close to the house. A day trip to the Aran Islands from Doolin Pier is like stepping back in time and well worth considering. Doolin and Ailwee cave, open to the public enhance the understanding of the limestone karst. There is an interpretative centre in Kilfenora which explains the uniqueness of this area. Loop Head lighthouse and the surrounding area of Kilbaha is worth a day trip.
This peaceful house, full of natural light all year round would make the perfect setting for someone to write their novel, paint or just catch up on reading.
Year Purchased: 2006
Why the Owner Chose Clare, Co. Clare, Ireland:
Even though Pollclabber cottage was a ruin when we bought it, we fell in love with the oasis feel to its beautiful setting and the stream running under the road and down through the field in front of the cottage. We felt it oozed potential. It is located on the edge of the Burren way walking route, cycle route and Atlantic Way, perfect for exploring the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Pollclabber Cottage is a pure rural idyll, with amazing walks. I adore that moment when I reach the crest of the hill just before the house and the Aran Islands come into view across the sea. It manages to take my breathe away every time. It revitalises and re-energises me every moment I spend there. I hope it does the same for all our visitors to Pollclabber
