The property

Kilrush 6 miles. This delightful, spacious detached cottage is set 6 miles from the coastal town of Kilrush and 14 miles from Kilkee in County Clare along the Wild Atlantic Way. Finished to a high standard, the cottage enjoys panoramic views of the countryside surrounded by family owned farmland with cattle grazing in the fields and a friendly donkey and foal in what was the old orchard. This 200 year old house, set in tranquil countryside, is the perfect retreat from modern living with the rolling hills of West Clare with clear rivers and lakes nearby. Set across the ground floor is the large open plan living area. This light and airy space has a kitchen, a dining area where home cooked meals can be enjoyed and plans for tomorrow can be discussed, and a sitting area. The comfortable sofas are arranged around a multi-fuel stove which will warm your toes at the end of the day and create a cosy atmosphere to be enjoyed. On the ground floor you will also find a double and a twin bedroom along with a shower room which allows for flexible sleeping arrangements within your group. Upstairs there are two single rooms and an additional shower room. Head outside and you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee while taking in the Irish air. The property is surrounded by old sycamore trees and you can enjoy long walks or bike rides on the quiet country roads by day and the hospitality of the local pubs in the evening. This cottage exudes old world charm and provides a comfortable base for your holiday destination and busy days exploring the Wild Atlantic Way.

About the location

KILRUSH, COUNTY CLARE

Kilkee 9 miles; Ennis 29 miles; Shannon Airport 40 miles.

The coastal town of Kilrush is located near the mouth of the River Shannon in the south-west of County Clare. An historic town, one of the listed Heritage Towns of Ireland, Kilrush was once an important Shannon port and is today home to a modern Marina and Heritage Centre. Take a boat trip from the marina and explore the lovely waters of the Shannon Estuary, with its many picturesque riverside towns and villages and resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins! Enjoy a drive along the Wild Atlantic Way, the longest defined coastal touring route in the world, which goes through Kilrush. Alternatively, take a ferry to nearby Scattery Island, a 6th century monastic island featuring the ruins of several churches and a unique 10th century round tower. Kilrush offers supermarkets, traditional pubs, restaurants and an excellent 18 hole golf course, and golfers will also enjoy the Greg Norman designed golf links at the Trump international Golf Course, Doonbeg, which is within easy reach. Just 9 miles away is the seaside resort of Kilkee, which boasts a horse-shoe bay, 18-hole golf course, restaurants, pubs, cafes and good walking routes, and is the starting point for the Loop Head Drive along the rugged Atlantic coastline, offering wonderful coastal scenery. All the sights along the West Coast of Clare - Lahinch, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren region - as well as the town on Ennis, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and the numerous other attractions are all in easy driving distance. If you feel the need to travel further afield, Shannon Ferry is just minutes away enabling you to explore the neighbouring counties of Limerick and Kerry.
