    “Feedback - Teach de Barra, Corofin, Co Clare Mother always said, ‘keep it simple son’.”

    So, I will… this Teach De Barra, Corofin is as good as it gets. High quality place, great memories! Family, grand children, dog, the lot have all just enjoyed an amazing, wonderful week 13-20 August at the magnificent, brand spanking Teach de Barra, Corofin, Co. Clare – literally the gateway (at the front door) over the historic Macken Bridge (River Fergus) to the wind swept Burren limestone landscapes of north Clare, the stunning Cliffs of Moher (25mins) and probably the most spectacular ...

    So, I will… this Teach De Barra, Corofin is as good as it gets. High quality place, great memories! Family, grand children, dog, the lot have all just enjoyed an amazing, wonderful week 13-20 August at the magnificent, brand spanking Teach de Barra, Corofin, Co. Clare – literally the gateway (at the front door) over the historic Macken Bridge (River Fergus) to the wind swept Burren limestone landscapes of north Clare, the stunning Cliffs of Moher (25mins) and probably the most spectacular concentration of Neolithic, Bronze Age, medieval tombs, manor houses, keeps & impressive old Gaelic castles anywhere on the island of Ireland. And all in a couple of square miles of lush green, traditional Irish countryside. Even managed to get on to Lahinch Beach 3x times. (18mins) Walked up the village (12mins) one day to Bofey Quinns for tea (great!). Old architecture is just everywhere. Kids loved the big play park at the local GAA ground (14mins). On another evening, back up the village to the Yellow Submarine (10mins) traditional music night (can’t remember?). What a place! This detached, big bright, spacious property with its massive kitchen (sporting two large dinning tables) and large living room was just a joy to behold. To the front, across the meadows, the wooded skyline of Clifden Mountain (as lovely in the morning mists) and the evening sunset. To the rear, from the extensive stone patio, again low green fields, old hawthorn hedgerows rolling out to a massive wildlife sanctuary lake, teaming with ducks, geese & swans. This wildlife area carries a Special Area of Conservation SAC EU protective designation & deservedly so. We had a very low fly-by directly over the house from a hunting Golden Eagle mid-week. With the area clearly steeped in history, local folklore & surrounded by abundant nature, this impressive new luxury property has it all & much more… and of course, is situated in one of the most interesting & beautiful scenic settings in the west of Ireland. In the evening you can sit outside, lower the lights & in the black-dark with the cooler airflow, its as if the heavens come down to greet you. Twinkling star-spangled skies all around, the constellations & the Milky Way combine to remind you of ‘this very special time & place’ in the mighty universe. Yes, for sure, as good as it gets, we all loved it & can’t wait to get back. Awesome! Aidan Crean, Belfast, 20 August 2022
