  • Spectacular Setting on the Irish Coast

    "We rented Cliff Den for a week on the Irish Coast. The logistics of renting the house went very smoothly and the owners are fantastic to work with. Any issues (there were not many) that did come up were dealt with very quickly and efficiently. The house itself is awesome - all the amenities are top of the line. There was just the two of us but the house can accomodate a lot more folks with multiple bedrooms. The location is perfect - a quiet spot on the coastline yet close to the Cliffs of Moher and the Atlantic Way. As a golfer Lahinch is a short drive from the house as well as Doonbeg. We would highly recommend renting this beautiful house in a beautiful spot. Very relaxing and quiet and if you need some chaos and tour buses, just drive up the road to the Cliffs of Moher. For what you get the price is great - you definitely get your money's worth. Very good restaurants nearby in the village as well. Please GO STAY AT CLIFF DEN."

  • A beautifully presented cottage making a perfect place to explore from.

    "Janet and Michael have a wonderful property to base yourself and explore a beautiful part of Ireland. Your relaxing vacation begins even before arrival as their communication is great and ensures you have easy to follow arrival info (A car is recommended) Along with this is a comprehensive pack for planning days out that they've actually experienced, days that they've yet to do. Restaurants, 'teach tábhairne' (practice with google translation :-) you are inn Irish speaking part of the island) and shops. Having this information beforehand allows you to start planning your stay early. Janet and Michael were away during our stay, but Bernie is nearby and although everything is modern and well presented, we had a very minor issue and once mentioned to Bernie, was rectified immediately. Thank you Bernie. The living accommodation has more than enough space for 2 couples which we had for our stay and the kitchen and equipment, perfectly equipped. The log burner for traditional turf is not only wonderful to relax by, but efficient too. Janet and Michael's hospitality also extends outside with the sharing of their outdoor games and equipment, a nice addition. Thank you again for sharing your property."

  • Competes well with other fabulous places

    "We like to stay in lovely places in many countries and Swallow Cottage ranks as one of our favourites. It competes well against Palladian villas, Italian castles and vineyards, Garda lakeside hotels and other very nice villas and hotels across Europe. We have stayed a number of times at Swallow Cottage in recent years and enjoyed it immensely each time. The cottage is ideally located on the Flaggy Shore in Newquay and it directly overlooks the sea. There are fantastic views of Galway bay and the mountains of Connemara on the far side of the bay. Watch for Dolphins visiting on warm days! Across the bay in the evenings, the glittering lights of Salthill bring to mind our stay in the Aeolian Islands north of Sicily. There we watched the volcanic gushings of the volcano on nearby Stromboli island while sipping a glass of wine in the evenings! The cottage is centrally located for visiting all the local attractions including the Burren, Aillwee caves and the cliffs of Moher etc. We enjoyed some fantastic local walks around the Flaggy Shore and beyond. The cottage is also only a short walk from a number of local amenities such as the Russell Gallery (gallery & coffee shop), Linnane’s bar and lobster restaurant and Linnalla’s ice-cream parlour. The local beach is only a couple of minutes’ walk from the cottage. The cottage is very well maintained and looked after and the manager is very helpful and accommodating. The cottage is perfect as a base to explore the local area or to simply relax and unwind in the fantastic setting. We look forward to our next stay!"

  • For the most part, a lovely stay

    "Our family of five took the trip of a lifetime to Ireland in May, 2016. We are a quiet family of two adults and three college-aged children. We enjoyed the rural location of this home. We were minutes away from the Cliffs of Moher and the town of Doolin. It was a short drive to the Burren where we enjoyed walks through the rocky landscape. We took a day trip to Galway which was a 90 minute drive. We also took a day trip to the Connemara Mountains and Kylemore Abbey which was so worth the 3 hour drive!! The home was spacious, clean and private. Nancy met us at the house when we arrived and showed us around. The beds were comfortable and the showers had fabulous water pressure and plenty of hot water. The views of the ocean and Doonagore castle were awesome from the front windows. The kitchen was well-equipped. The only problem we had with the home was the heat. It was chilly during our ten-day stay. When we arrived, the heat wasn't even on and the house was quite cold. The first level is heated with underfloor heating and the second level by hot water radiators. Nancy turned the heat on and told us it would take "20 minutes" to heat up. After several hours and no improvement, we called Thessa, the property manager. Thessa stated it would take "several hours" to heat up. Well, it was so cold the first night that my son went to bed with his coat on. It literally took about 4 or 5 days until the lower level warmed up somewhat. The upstairs hot water radiators did a good job within a few days, but the downstairs remained chilly for most our our stay. My husband spoke to Thessa several times about the heat. It didn't help that the heat was on a timer - The downstairs never had a chance to heat up. We did eventually feel the heat in the floor in the back downstairs bedroom. We never did feel any heat in the floor in the front bedroom, the dining room, the living room, or the kitchen. We suggested to Thessa that maybe the heating should be checked in those particular rooms. The kids did not even use the downstairs front bedroom because it was too cold. Instead they shared rooms upstairs. Thessa ultimately instructed us to bypass the automatic timer and keep the heat on as needed. When we returned to the states, the owner told us she was "disappointed that we used the heat so much!!" Other than the heat issue, we enjoyed the house and our stay in Ireland."
