Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage recently with our young children while in Ireland attending my brother’s wedding. Amazing location, spacious cottage with everything we could need. Very easy to find, following the owner’s helpful guidance. The wedding was at Dromoland Castle, so the cottage was perfectly located; no more than and easy 10min drive away. Shops easy to access in Newmarket-on-Fergus only a few mins away by car. Warm, comfortable and clean. I would highly recommend this cottage. The owner’s communication has been fantastic at every stage. Many thanks!

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.
