  • Luxury and comfort on a different level

    "We stayed at this wonderful house for nine nights in late September/early October. There were just two of us but it would easily accommodate six adults or a family. The location of the house is stunning, right on the sea, looking over toward Lahinch beach and the rugged coastline. Brendan welcomed us warmly and gave us a tour of the house. Everything you could possibly need is provided and more besides. We had to drag ourselves away from the house to visit the many attractions of this beautiful county, such as the cliffs of Moher less than 4 miles away, the magical Burren, Lisdoonvarna and Doolin to name a few. Liscannor is really well situated to visit anywhere in Clare and we even got the bus one day so we could both enjoy the sights. We cooked a few times so as not to miss the early evening view and enjoy the waves crashing against the rocks when the tide came in. The picture windows from the living rooms and the master bedroom allow you to make the most of the scenery. There is no compromise on comfort and you will be guaranteed a great nights sleep in high quality beds. The gorgeous bed in the master bedroom is 6 feet wide and the mattress was so comfortable we are now on the lookout for a similar one. So often holiday homes are furnished sparsely and with little thought for the holdiaymaker. My husband is 6'5" so he was delighted with this as he was with the huge TVs in all three sitting rooms, yes three! When I managed to convince him we should leave the house of an evening we enjoyed a meal in Vaughans seafood restaurant, a few minutes walk away. I'd told him they did a wonderful seafood platter but he was devastated to discover it was only on the summer menu which had ended as it was 1st October?? While we both enjoyed our meal we felt it was a bit overpriced and have had better for less in many other restaurants in Ireland. Although they have has a lot of awards for their food, the latest seem to be a few years ago. Maybe best to get a taxi or drive to Lahinch or farther afield if you are a real foodie. We adjourned to Egan's pub after our meal and had a great night. The proprietor was enjoying a night off and was most welcoming and the band, Off the Walnuts, we're brilliant and really interacted with the crowd. We also enjoyed very nice fish and chips in McHugh's pub one night. The barman is friendly and welcoming and so are the patrons. We have rented many houses on the west coast of Ireland but nothing has compared to Holland Drive."

  • Wonderful!

    "We spent 2 weeks with extended family at Ballyvara House over the holidays and had an absolutely fabulous time! The house accommodated the 18 adults so comfortably. Everyone had plenty of privacy, with a bathroom for each bedroom, and the common areas were warm and comfortable. The commercial kitchen was well equipped and made it easy to cook for the large group. It's a 10 minute walk to town along a path so you can avoid walking on the narrow roads. Becky was extremely helpful, responsive and sweet. Doolin is a fun town, with 4 pubs, all of which regularly have live music. I can't imagine finding another location anywhere that would provide accommodations like this for such a large group. We're talking about doing it again next year. I highly recommend it!"

  • Great house central to the Burren

    "We stayed as part of a family tour of Ireland and had a really good time - the house is great - space for cooking, eating, watching TV, family games and nice views and bedrooms. Every night down to the beach and maybe a drink at the local pub on the way back. The Burren, horse and bike riding, trips to the Aran Islands, caves and walking. Relaxing and unspoilt Clare. The Cliffs on a clear and calm day one of the highlights but more than enough to fill a week in Clare from a comfortable and peaceful base. Recommended!"

  • Beautiful and clean home with sea views and lovely garden

    "We were so thrilled when we arrived at Soheen to find such a clean home with beautiful views and a lovely garden. The kitchen is very spacious and sunny. Our family of six really enjoyed spending time in the kitchen together. The sitting room is cozy and has many bright Windows. The bedroom set up was ideal for our needs as well, to very comfortably sleep 6. The bunk beds even accommodated our 6'2" tall adult son! We enjoyed the coastal location, spending time in mainly Lahinch and Doolin. If you have a chance take the Doolin Cliff Walk with Pat Sweaney. You won't be disappointed! Also, at the house, we enjoyed visits from the neighbors little black and white terrier dog, named Ben, or Bennie as we called him. We had such a relaxing time at Soheen, with the ability to day trip to Galway and the Connemara region. Try dinner at Barrtra Seafood right near the house. One of the best meals we have ever had. A bit pricey compared to pub food, but well worth the 35 Euro per person for the Seafood Surprise 5 course meal! Also try the seafood chowder at O'Conner's Pub in Doolin. We highly recommend this holiday house! Thank you Joan and Brian for sharing your beautiful and restful home with travelers!"
