A very warm welcome in spacious 4 bed getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Marian and Martin made us all very welcome including our 8 month old baby by providing her with a cot and high chair. The house was spacious, well laid out and inviting. Very well situated for short trips to the beach and sessions and set dancing in Kilfenora. We used it as a base for going to the fleadh in Ennis. We learned how to milk the cows and even got to sample the good stuff. A lovely stay in rural Clare.
