We stayed for two weeks for a family holiday and were pleasantly surprised at how good the cottage was. The instructions to find it was straightforward and the complementary food we found on arrival went down well with the children. The cottage was clean, airy, and *quiet*! There was no TV reception, but a huge range of DVDs (for grown-ups) to choose from. We tended to listen to the radio anyway during the times we were at the cottage. The kitchen was fully equipped, making cooking for a family very easy - the dishwasher was an unexpected bonus too (we don't have one at home!). On an evening we often lit a fire (you can get wood and peat from the general store in Kilkee). The kids played in the garden for hours on an evening - perfect for ball games and chasing each other around. The cottage served as a perfect base to explore the nearby towns and coastline too - we spent much of our time in Kilkee, Carrigaholt, and around the Loophead peninsula. If you have kids, check out the Nevsail watersports activities in the summer at Kilkee, and the Dolphin Watch boats from Carrigaholt - both were excellent.
“Lovely property set in beautiful grounds. Ideal location for touring and sight seeing county clare. Amenities at cottage great and everything needed was there. Coal fire was lovely of an evening to chill and relax without TV and Internet. Good communication with host Kevin and property very reasonably priced. Would love to return in summer when the cottage can be seen at its optimum. Overall all a lovely experience and cottage. In all fairness would in the summer be quite happy to just stay in cottage and have bbq in garden and enjoy the peace and solitude. ”
“If I had the time and money, I would be going back tomorrow. Lovely location, beautiful cottage, comfortable, warm and most of all perfect for families. Lots of space, clean and everything one needs for a vacation/getaway. Lovely people with whom I dealt and very very fair!
