Property Description

Our facilities::

Our facilities include all en suite rooms, free Internet and Wifi, free parking, complimentary continental breakfast (and free tea/coffee all day ), excellent self-catering kitchen and dining room, beautiful TV and reading room with great selection of books of Irish interest.

The Burren area:

What a location ! A great base for The Cliffs of Moher, walking in The Burren, fantastic beaches and surfing at Lahinch and Fanore (what a beach to walk at low tide !)

Nearby sites of interest:

We are only 10-15 minutes from some of the leading sites of interest in The Burren area including: The Poulnabrone Dolmen, The Doolin and Ailwee Caves, Caherconnell Stone Fort. You can also take a boat-trip to the Aran Islands from nearby Doolin.

Take in a trip to the world -class Burren Perfumery near Carron.

Food and drink:

Directly across the road from:
- The Roadside Tavern where the traditional music sessions are legendary;
- The Burren Smokehouse - which is one of Ireland's leading producers of gourmet salmon
- The Wild Honey Inn which is serving the best pub food in Clare right now.

The great outdoors:
Only 10-15 minutes max drive (you can walk too !) from the famous surfing beaches of Lahinch and Fanore. There's nothing like walking Fanore beach at low tide on a summer's evening.

We have detailed maps and routes for many of the best walks in the area including Caher Valley Looped Walks and can link you with some of the areas leading walking guides including Tony Kirby, Shane Connolly , Mary Howard , John Connolly.

Food and drink:
Throughout The Burren there are great developments in locally sourced quality Irish foods. We also recommend The Tea Rooms in Ballyvaughan, the Farmer's Markets in Kinvara (Fridays) and Ballyvaughan (Saturdays).
For a special occasion try Gregan's castle which will surely be Michelin starred by the time you read this!
