The property

Perched on a cliff-top in the townland of Doonagore near Doolin in County Clare, this traditional detached cottage was the birthplace of the Russell family, one of Ireland's best-known family of traditional musicians. Full of character and charm, this Doolin cottage offers stone-flagged floors, a solid-fuel stove in an impressive stone hearth, vaulted ceiling. The large picture window in the kitchen of this Doolin cottage means the room is flooded with light, making it a pleasure to enjoy breakfast while taking in those stunning sea views. Should the sea breeze really pick up, this Doolin cottage remains cosy and welcoming, with solid-fuel stove in the sitting room making it a snug retreat. Outside this cottage near Doolin, there is open ground, with a front and rear patio, furniture, BBQ and those ever-present sea views. Walkers will love the proximity to the Cliffs of Moher coastal path, which can be accessed directly from the owner's land, while families will enjoy a day on Lahinch beach, or discovering the eerie landscape of The Burren. A Doolin cottage for a uniquely Irish break.
