Lovely spacious home in the beautiful Irish countryside

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home and the location. The grounds were beautiful with such a wonderful view of the lake. The house itself was spacious with very comfortable beds. We loved the surrounding villages and pubs; so quaint and historic. It was a great location for exploring county Clare. We felt like we truly lived in the Irish countryside for 8 days. We would definitely stay again!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at this home. My husband and son enjoyed the fire pit outside the home, the first night was magical the way the stars were out. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the television, VCR/DVD player, washer and dryer all worked well. The house has a nice touch with comfy pillows and beautiful plants it set up very nicely. The location is good your close enough to Limerick city and Ennis is a short drive away. We would recommend this place the owner Gillian was very pleasant to deal with.

Spacious, clean, comfy, beautiful garden & area.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless. The lounge was large and homely with an open fire and the large windows let light in during the day providing us with a lovely view of the lake. The huge kitchen table easily seated all 8 of us and held all the great big dishes of food that we had cooked. The utility room was large & had a dart board & games. Additional wellies & rain macs were available. Sad that we didn't get to use the barbecues and more of the stunning back garden due to the weather. Also, we ran out of time & didn't get to use the local boats on the lake. A great party house for a group of up to 9 people.

Further Details:

Fenloe was the site of a monastic foundation in the early sixth century and is the oldest recorded settlement in the Newmarket area, although the existing church ruin overlooking Lake Fenloe dates from the tenth or eleventh century.

Quinn Abbey, a few miles down the road, is a ruined Franciscan Abbey. It was built in the early 15th century on the remains of an earlier Norman castle and is recognised as a National Monument.

Knappogue Castle, a few miles down the road, was built is 1467 and is a magnificent example of a medieval tower. It has a beautiful walled garden originally constructed in 1817. A great night out for all the family is experiencing a medieval banquet at Knappogue.

Craggaunowen Castle and Historic Park, a few miles down the road, is another fine example of a 16th century restored Medieval Castle. The historic park is great for children to learn about early Bronze Age settlers and Ring Forts.
