The property

This bright and welcoming, detached holiday cottage sits close to the sea on the outskirts of Kilbaha, the last little village on County Clare’s Loop Head Peninsula. With plenty of space for you and your loved ones, this comfortable cottage offers accommodation entirely the ground floor. It sleeps up to six people in its three bright bedrooms, which provide the perfect respite after a busy day out and about amongst County Clare’s majestic countryside. The large kitchen has wide, dual aspect windows, with sights stretching across the stunning surrounding countryside. It offers lots of room to prepare hearty family meals, and comes with a sociable dining space, where you can all gather together for dinner and discuss the day’s activities. To the front of the property sits the airy sitting room, which has lots of cosy sofas for relaxing on; take a seat, switch on the gas fire and soothe away any chills after a breezy day beside the sea. Outside is a decked space with patio furniture, so on fine days you can enjoy a morning coffee or a relaxed alfresco lunch in view of the sweeping enclosing countryside, before heading out on an adventure. The tiny fishing village of Kilbaha nestles in a small, sheltered bay and offers breathtaking seascapes alongside its local shop and welcoming inn. Venture just three miles further and you’ll find yourself at the Loop Head Lighthouse, the furthest point that County Clare extends into the Atlantic. Try one of the superb coastal walks or borrow a bike from the owner and head out on the lonely, winding roads to take in the superb scenery. Some of the country’s most beautiful drives can be enjoyed in the wonderful west of Ireland, with the Cliffs of Moher a pleasant coastal drive north, well worth the day trip, passing lots of other excellent towns and attractions along the way. Why not spend the day in Lahinch and try out the surf? Or head to the coast surrounding Spanish Point, where there are beautiful coves, cliffs and secluded sandy beaches. Kilkee is just half an hour’s drive away, the gateway to the peninsula, where the wide beaches brim with immaculate white sands, and to the south, the whole of County Kerry is waiting to be explored. This spacious cottage offers the perfect base for exploring Loop Head’s remote peninsula, County Clare and beyond.
