About Ann Doherty

This is my home for 6 months of the year. My work takes me away for the summer months. I'm sure you'll enjoy my house as much as I do.

Ann Doherty purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Ann Doherty chose County Clare

I grew up in this area and I built this house in 2006 because I loved the site and remember visiting it when I was a kid

I love to go for walks towards Doonagore Castle down to Doolin beach to watch the sunset or along the coast walkway to Cliffs of Moher.

What makes this cottage unique

Situated on a quiet road, ideal for walking or cycling, yet only 10 to 15 min walk to restaurants, pubs and shops

Wonderful house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in lots of holiday homes over the years and this was the best. Fabulous location with great views, beautiful gardens and a great house. Comfortable and so well equipped and the welcome from Ann was great - apple pie and supplies to start off our stay without needing to find a shop straight away. Great for exploring the Burren and visiting the beaches of Fanore and Lahinch. And evenings up on the top floor or on the bench in the garden watching the sun set over the Aran Islands and watching the hanging views of Connemara mountains will never be forgotten. Hope to be back here soon!

An amazing home with an incredible host!

  • 5 of 5

I've been fortunate to have utilized VRBO around the globe and Ann is by far the most thoughtful and caring host I've ever encountered. From the moment you walk into her home, you know you are in for a treat. Fresh apple pie, breakfast and lunch staples and a home packed with all the creature comforts; she literally has thought of everything! I own my own VRBO property and took notes while I was here to improve the experience for my guests. It really was a joy to stay here.

Ann went above & beyond to welcome us. Delicious apple pie, staples for breakfast & lunch. This property is not simply a house, it's a beautiful home.

Amazing propety and amazing owner

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property. It is immaculately maintained, and Ann is extremely customer oriented. She was very understanding when we made a scheduling error, and was a pleasure to do business with. The upstairs has sweeping views of the coast, and is just a 2-3 minute drive from Doolin. There is a creek in the back yard, and a nice picnic table in the back for outdoor meals in the fresh air.

An Immaculate Home and the Best Hostess

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Ireland. We have rented numerous properties on VRBO, but this one far exceeds any of the others. The house was immaculate and well furnished. Having a vegan in the family, we seek houses with good kitchens so we can prepare our own meals. The spacious and modern kitchen made meal preparation a charm. The hostess/owner, Ann, far exceeds any other I have ever encountered. She is kind, warm, generous and accommodating. She had a starter package of groceries for us and a warm apple crumble awaiting our arrival. She made us feel at home immediately. The house is in a great location close to Doolin village and walking trails, but far enough away to be out of the tourist traffic. We were awakened each morning by the mooing of cows and delighted in the wonderful sunsets seen from the house in a quiet, tranquil setting. I cannot say enough about the property or the hostess....both far exceed all expectations. Thank-you Ann for allowing us to share your home. We'll definitely be back.

A wonderful property and a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! This was our first time using HomeAway, but it will not be our last. Our host and owner Ann, was so gracious and accommodating. The house is beautiful, and so relaxing with views of the Aran Islands. The first morning we were awakened by a cuckoo bird, which is a first. There were even ring-necked pheasant in the side yard. From the welcoming breakfast and apple pie, to the well appointed kitchen, we lacked for nothing. We would gladly book with Ann again, should we return a third time to Ireland! The house is centrally located on the west coast, within easy driving distance of Connemara and Galway, Cork, and Dingle. Of course it's within walking distance of Doolin, and a short drive to The Cliffs of Mohr and Lisdoonvarna. Be sure to check out the sheep dog herding demonstration at the Caherconnell Stone Fort in The Burren.

Thank you again Ann.
