This cosy 19th century converted cottage is located on the west coast of County Clare just outside the little town of Doonbeg. The setting of the cottage is breathtaking. As shown in the photographs, the cottage is blessed with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by rolling green fields. The Aran Islands can be seen on the ocean horizon to the north-west. The beach (the White Strand) and cliff walks are minutes from the door. The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, and Doolin (where ferries run to the Aran Islands) are within an hour's drive. There are of course many local pubs and good restaurants.

Opened July 2002, The Doonbeg Golf Club, designed by the legendary two-time British Open champion Greg Norman. 'A true Links site - soaring, grass-covered dunes rising nearly one hundred feet tall above the white-capped Atlantic'. A private club with public play.

Things to See and Do: See the unique natural attractions of Ireland's South western Region, such as The Burren, The Cliffs of Moher, and the Aran Islands. Explore the wild Clare coast on Loop Head. Visit Bunratty Castle and Folk Park near Shannon airport. Take a ferry ride and drive the Dingle peninsula. Spend a day in Galway City, have lunch on the way at Moran's on the Weir, famous for Galway oysters, and seafood, located near Clarinbridge. Take a walk from the cottage to the striking Baltard Cliffs or just go fishing or golfing.

Doonbeg river: salmon, sea trout, brown trout. Beach fishing, bass and fluke at the fabulous 2 mile Doughmore strand, the latter also superb for wind-surfing and walking, view from cottage.

                                                                My wife and I spent 7 days in this wonderful irish cottage. I can't say enough about our stay. The setting is beautiful. We'd have dinner in the friendliest town of Doonbeg. Visit with the locals, and go for walks down old Irish country roads. We sat by a peat fire every night. The cottage was everything we hoped for. Not too much, not too little. The Cliffs of Moher are not far, and if you like an occasional game of golf, there are plenty of courses nearby. Thank you Anne!

                                                                Doonbeg is located on the West coast of Co. Clare, 6 miles from the busy market town of Kilrush, on the Shannon, 6 miles from the resort seaside town of Kilkee. It is within one hour's drive of Shannon International Airport Other Activities: pony treking, bird watching, caving/Burren Golf: 'Ireland's southwestern coast is home to a pair of the world's most storied Links courses, Bally Bunion and Lahinch. They have come to fruition as championship settings for the game. Between them is a third course - Doonbeg - with a story of its own. Doonbeg's storied seaside dunes were identified by the fathers of Lahinch as early as 1892. Officers of the Scottish Black Watch Regiment, they had searched far and wide for Ireland's perfect coastal site. As legend has it, this dramatic Links Land at Doonbeg was their first choice, but Lahinch was closer to transportation and rail service. Because of 19th century economics, Doonbeg's time would be delayed for another 100 years'. For further details on website addresses, please ask us.
