We (myself, my husband and our two daughters aged 7 and 2) booked this cottage for our wedding/honeymoon. We arrived on Thursday and got married in Vaughan's pub (around the corner) on Saturday. We then stayed for another 6 days and explored all the wonderful sights Clare has to offer. Our host Anna Maria was a pleasure to deal with from the start. She made everything very easy for us and we knew that she was always on hand to assist us should we need any help. We were even surprised with a lovely card and bottle of champagne on our arrival on account of our upcoming celebration :) We also decided that we wanted to stay an extra night which was sorted with just a quick text to Anna Maria who very generously allowed us to stay. The cottage itself is beautiful and while it retains all the original features of an old Irish cottage, it also has everything you need for modern-day living - great kitchen facilities, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer etc. It has everything you would want even a lovely table outside to eat al fresco (weather permitting!). The cottage is also perfectly located in the lovely village of Kilfernora where you can find Vaughan's pub (which does beautiful food and a ceili every Sunday night) as well as The Burren Centre. The village is also close to pretty much all the sights in Clare. We saw the Cliffs of Moher, Moher Open Farm (twice), The Aaran Islands, Aliwee Caves, Father Ted's house and lots more. All in all couldn't recommend this cottage or location highly enough.We'd go back tomorrow if we could and will certainly be returning in the future. Jennifer
We stayed in the Cottage a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed our experience both of the beautiful cottage, and the area as a whole. The cottage itself is so quaint and comfortable we were so delighted the minute we arrived. The owner and family could not do enough to make sure that our stay was memorable, which they managed to do by the special little things they did for us throughout our stay, especially bringing us logs for the log burner in the living room which we enjoyed each evening to great effect. The cottage is broken into two parts, there is the older original dwelling, really quite unspoiled, and very Irish if that is what you are after, it has a big stone fireplace in the living room coupled with the log burner, adequate comfortable furniture, and everything that you would need to make this a home from home. As well as the old part, there is a fantastic new extension comprising of a bedroom with ensuite, a massive kitchen/dining area, a fully equipped utility room and a bathroom. Must say the showers surprised me, they were both power showers and were fabulous. The cottage has oil fired central heating and has a very efficient boiler which heated the water and radiators very quickly. The bedrooms are really comfortable, in fact, the bed in the older bedroom was so comfortable that I slept sound from the first night, something which I find quite difficult when trying to sleep somewhere other than my own home. The kitchen as I mentioned was a lovely size, we made breakfast each morning, and it comes fully equipped with everything that you would ever need. The parking area was great in that we were able to bring the car inside every night and close the gates which made us feel very secure, not that anything in Kilfenora would ever make you feel threatened, it's a lovely little village with a very interesting monastery which is well worth a visit. Thankyou Mary and your lovely family for letting us share in this little jewel nestling in this fascinating part of Ireland, we would recommend it to anyone wanting a clean, comfortable home from home.
We have just returned from a fantastic week at this cottage and will certainly be looking at going back next year. Just off the main street in Kilfenora, the cottage is close enough to walk to local shops and pubs yet just far enough away to give total peace and quiet. A mix of the old and new, the main living room brought back wonderful childhood memories of sitting in front of the fire chatting for hours whilst the newer kitchen/diner felt like we were in a newly built house. The owner lives close by so all needs can be catered for. Local sights that must be visited are the Cliffs of Moher and the Ailwee Caves and a stop off for a bit of surfing in Lahinch is a must. The beach at Fanore is one of the best we have ever been to and with so many ghost stories abound my teenagers loved the stay during Halloween. No stay in Kilfenora can be complete until the Bacon and Cabbage dinner from Vaughan's has been tried - you may struggle to finish a Guinness after such good food. Highly recommend the Cottage, Kilfenora and Vaughan's.
