Property description

Inchiquin House is an elegant period home in County Clare, romantically tucked away in the west of Ireland not far from the Atlantic. It is the perfect base from which to explore the unique Burren landscape, historic sites and the county’s many leisure activities. Over 200 years old, the house stands in its own peaceful wooded private estate of over one hundred acres, reached by its own half-mile long avenue. This well-appointed self-catering home comfortably accommodates 10 guests in 5 bedrooms, and is an ideal vacation setting for family and friends. We are delighted to provide for the young and old, having a special outside playhouse for children and a wheelchair-accessible bathroom and guest room within. Inchiquin House is conveniently positioned only 30 minutes drive from Shannon Airport, with Limerick and Galway being only a little farther. Both inside and outside, the house exudes atmosphere and an old country charm - an experience you will want to relive again and again.


House Interior: The House is entered through a bright porch added in the early twentieth century and leads into the main hallway with stairs to the upstairs rooms.

To the right of the hallway is a twin-windowed drawing room with relaxing period armchairs and plush sofas, dominated in the background by a Steinweg pianola and a writing table. Two paintings of The Four Seasons adorn the walls. The black marble fireplace, decorated with period blue tiles, burns on coal, wood and pleasantly-scented local turf.

The well-proportioned red-painted dining room with polished marble fireplace welcomes you with a warm glow of old-world opulence. The large mahogany table seats 10 and is serviced by two sideboards.

At the rear of the house is the refurbished kitchen and dining area providing a view towards the old garden at the back. The kitchen has oak units and granite worktops. The dining table seats 10 comfortably, and has an adjacent sideboard.

The Surrounding Estate: The estate borders the country road from Corofin to Kilnaboy, and the house is reached by a kilometre-long avenue which provides splendid views over Lake Inchiquin. Coming up to the house you pass through a double-gate under two old copper beech trees that change colour with the seasons.

The front ground-floor drawing room and dining room look out on to lawn and mature trees. The house is on a working farm, and cattle occasionally graze in the fields adjoining the avenue, being sometimes herded into the extensive woodland at the back.

Surrounding the house there is ‘The Granary’, a storage building and a series of farm outbuildings. There is also a small storage building in the garden that has been converted into a children’s playhouse.

In the woodland behind the House, the Burren’s karst limestone reveals itself, formed by millennia of erosion. A large stone ring-fort over 1000 years old can also be visited on foot, through the moss-covered forest landscape.

Car: Necessary

Inchiquin House is situated at the gateway to the famous karst limestone Burren in Co. Clare. It is easily accessible from abroad, being only 30 minutes drive from Shannon International Airport. While the House and Estate is a charming tranquil hideaway, there is simply so much to do and see in the surrounding area. Start simply with the stunning landscape of the Burren National Park, the monumental Cliffs of Moher at the Alantic, or go underground into the Ailwee or Doolin Caves. For those who are actively minded, surf and golf in Lahinch; walk, bike or hike in the National Park and along the breathtaking Atlantic coast, or boat and fish in our own local Lake Inchiquin. Interested in history? Explore the nearby archaeological megalithic tombs, medieval abbeys and castles and cultural parks such as Bunratty. On your way home, drop into Boffey’s pub in Corofin, and sit in front of the open turf fire with your Guinness whilst listening to the jigs and reels of the ‘trad’ musicians.

Golf: Golf and other links

No more than 30 minutes drive from the house there are some of the most famous Irish Links Courses such as Lahinch and Doonbeg. There are many others worth playing too.

Irish Landmark Trust

About: Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges. As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home. Over the past two decades, we’ve conserved 25 quirky, eccentric, and distinctive buildings across Ireland. Irish Landmark uses only the best artisans, builders and craftspeople, and we give them scope to revive traditional skills that might otherwise be lost. Conservation projects like ours can lift the morale of communities, and the tourist revenue from Irish Landmark guests brings cash infusions and new energy to these areas. Keeping the buildings truly relevant means offering the romance of a medieval spiral staircase, along with a modern kitchen and a shower that works. Public and private owners typically agree to let us take properties on 50-year leases that allow us to make them suitable for holiday accommodation. Once a lease expires, the property reverts to the owner. It might not feel like your holiday is anything but a relaxing indulgence, but when you stay in an Irish Landmark property, you’re part of a community that’s keeping heritage alive.
