Why Cloverleaf Cottages chose Clare

This is a chance to stay in a beautifully restored 300 year old Irish stone cottage. The cottage is set in a peaceful location but still only 35 minutes drive to Galway. There is plenty of history about the cottage.

Our 400-year old stone cottage haven

  • 4 of 5

To make our Irish vacation truly memorable, we spent five nights in the 400-year old traditional stone cottage. Once the gate house to a nearby manor (home of Lady Margaret Gregory, a constant guest of W.B. Yeats), the cottage has all the feeling of stepping back in time, yet with all the modern conveniences to make our Irish vacation enjoyable--en suite bathroom (plus an extra toilet and shower in the adjacent building), totally furnished kitchen, WiFi, laundry, TV, linens, comfortable beds, and parking right next to the cottage. Located in the country outside of Kilchreest, it was only a 30-minute drive to Galway, a 30-minute drive to Burren National Park, and a 2-hour drive to Connemara National Park. We took a bus tour from Galway to the Cliffs of Moher and then a ferry to the bottom of the Cliffs and over to the Aran Island of Inis Oirr. Each day was packed full of Irish adventures and it was great coming back to our stone cottage for dinner, relaxation, a wee dram of Irish Cream, and a comfy bed. Olive and her husband made sure that we had everything we needed and provided some suggestions for sightseeing. Staying in a 400-year old stone cottage made our Irish vacation a dream vacation. Thanks to Olive and Cloverleaf Cottages!

Unclean farm building

  • 2 of 5

The chief disappointment with this property is the lack of information. Second, although charmingly furnished, it was very dirty.

Throughout Ireland there are many stone outbuildings and even houses that have been reclaimed and refurbished for use as holiday cottages. This one has been well built up but it is situated directly on a working farm. Not a few yards from the farm, in the middle of it. Perhaps as a consequence it is particularly difficult to keep clean but no amount of charm makes up for filth. At the end of December we found lots of dead flies and my husband was bit by a wasp. It was dusty and strewn with cobwebs. I found a discarded condom wrapper in a spare blanket.

The sauna, which was inoperable, is located in another storage-type building separate from the house. The laundry facilities are located in yet another building. The toilet and shower inside the house are in a super low ceilinged and narrow bathroom: a challenge for anyone over 5’8”.

One good thin about this property is that it was well heated, something I can’t stay for other Irish properties that I would nevertheless rate much higher.

Adorable Irish Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful stay at the Irish cottage. The building is over 300 years old but it is well equipped and comfortable that you will have a great and relaxing vacation. Olive, our host, was so hospitable and helped make our stay so special. You do need a car if you are going to stay here but well worth the drive. So cozy to come and sit in front of the fireplace. A real special place in Ireland.
