The property

A beacon of peace and solace, this Kilfenora cottage stands alone amidst rolling fields and beautiful countryside, on the outskirts of the village of Carron, 5 miles from the Burren village of Kilfenora, in County Clare. Easily accessible, this single storey cottage has been fully restored, and beautifully renovated to provide top-class Kilfenora holiday cottage accommodation. The large, open plan living area in this Kilfenora cottage is a wonderful place to spend time together; while you are cooking a tasty meal in the well-equipped kitchen, you can join in the conversation of those chatting on the comfy sofa, and all watch the TV in the background. The second sitting room is light and bright, with French doors to the patio, so while you are relaxing on the sofa, you can open the doors and enjoy the fresh, light breeze of the open countryside. This Kilfenora cottage has a wonderful, unique feature; it is across the road from the famous Caherconnell Fort, a well-preserved ancient Ring Fort with a visitor centre and popular rose-covered tea room. Families will love the sandy beach at Lahinch, while walkers and nature lovers alike can delight in the wonders of the Cliffs of Moher. Stroll along the wonderful Wild Atlantic Way which is a long distance footpath that runs along the coast, or discover the Burren, with its magnificent countryside and wildlife. With so much to see and do within 30 minutes' drive, and a beautiful cottage to return to the end of busy days, this really is a Kilfenora cottage you'll want to return to, year after year.
