The property

Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, this wonderful, detached cottage is in the scenic rural setting of Ross, just two miles from Kilbaha, a village on the Loop Head Peninsula in County Clare. This cottage welcomes guests from the moment you step through the door and also boasts impressive views across to the Brandon Mountains and Kerry Head. Inviting and homely, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind, with an open plan living area, featuring a dining area that makes a feature of the wonderful views and a comfortable sitting area for enjoying time together by the solid fuel stove. This Clare cottage offers three wonderful bedrooms, so flexible sleeping arrangements are available at this family-friendly cottage. Why not make the most of the warm, summer months and relax outside in the large garden area and patio? Soak up your stunning surroundings whilst any children in your group play in safety. Guests are lucky enough to be directly opposite a wonderfully unique feature; a magnificent cove that is cut into the County Clare coastline. Venture down into the calm waters to enjoy a relaxing swim in this truly spectacular setting. For those who enjoy walking and cycling, the Loop Head Peninsula coastline is known as offering some of the best routes in Ireland. The lighthouse at the entrance to the Shannon Estuary is well worth a visit or there is the Bridge of Ross, a naturally formed bridge where the Atlantic has cut away into the rock, that guests can marvel at whilst discovering this fantastic area. Picturesque viewpoints are on offer on the Wild Atlantic Way, down the west coast of Ireland, and the well known golf links at Doonbeg, the unspoilt sands at Lahinch or Kilkee and the impressive Cliffs of Moher are all along this route. Other activities that can be enjoyed in the area are a trip on the Shannon to see if you can spot any dolphins, a ferry ride to Kerry to discover the delights of the area or why not visit a local pub where you will receive a warm, Irish welcome and be able to enjoy some traditional music. This is a wonderful cottage that can be enjoyed at any time of the year.
