About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

For anyone who has ever been to Ireland, you know how truly relaxing it can be. But for those of you have been to the West coast you have also experienced the true magic of this country. This house is in a remarkable location with the Aran Islands in front of you and the Burren behind. Virtually every window has a postcard view. And although the views are spectacular, the house has a warmth all its own. The moment you step in the front door, you will feel like you are home. Maybe that's why we have so many people come back year after year. Or maybe it's the truly wonderful friends we have in the area who make you feel more like family than a visitor.

Three of the rooms have king size beds with bathrooms en suite. The fourth room has two twin beds with a bathroom just outside the door. The living room has a gorgeous hand carved stone fireplace and two-story ceilings with skylights.

For those of you who wish to leave the house you will find abundant entertainment. There is a gorgeous sand beach just down the road. For the golfers in your group there is a world-class golf course just a few towns over in Lahinch. Also in Lahinch you will find some of the country's best surfing. (And, although Fanore is not yet reknowned for its surfing, there is a surf school every summer.) And for those of you music lovers, Doolin is just one town over and is renowned for its traditional Irish music in addition to many incredible restaurants. But for those who wish to explore Fanore, you will find amazing scenic walks and some of the best angling in the country.

The house is just up the road from O'Donohue's Pub and a small grocery shop. Both are within walking distance.

You will love this relaxing retreat along with its stunning ocean views. 03/17/2017

VRBO Bear stayed here:

There is no better place to learn to love Ireland than the Bridge House in Fanore, County Clare. From the moment the Bear and our party crossed over the bridge and walked through the front door, we were struck with how spacious and warm the house felt. The closeness of the beach and the Atlantic arrested our attention as we looked out through the large living room windows. My wife and I enjoyed our stay in the master bedroom because of its stunning ocean view and comfortable king bed. We were delighted to learn the rest of our party also had lovely views of the Atlantic from their rooms’ vantages. Each meal we prepared in the Bridge House’s well-appointed kitchen felt as if we were in our own home. The living room offered a comfortable place to visit and to enjoy each other’s company. We enjoyed lighting a fire in the fireplace each evening as we settled in for the night. While the Bridge House offered relaxing seclusion, we enjoyed walking to O’Donahue’s pub for lively conversation. The neighbors of the Bridge House, and our lovely local contacts, couldn’t have been more gracious and accommodating. We visited the beautiful Ashford Castle in County Mayo as well as the incredible Cliffs of Moher and the rugged coast just a short drive from the Bridge House. If you are planning a trip to Ireland and want to experience the Wild Atlantic Way, then you will find the Bridge House to be the perfect place for you and your party.
