    “First Time Letting of this superb new home: We are after coming from the first ever letting of this house after a week long stay here.”

    Our booking was a very last-minute booking. From the first moment we contacted the hosts, on the afternoon of our stay, they were so accommodating. Nothing was a trouble to them. ...

    Our booking was a very last-minute booking. From the first moment we contacted the hosts, on the afternoon of our stay, they were so accommodating. Nothing was a trouble to them. From the first minute we entered the property, just wow. We didn't know where next to look. Absolutely amazing. On first sight, everything was so clean, perfect, immaculate and so well kept. There wasn’t a thing to fault. It was all spotless, like showhouse condition. This house should be a five star rating house, as it really is a showpiece. We are very fussy people and some of us have certain allergies, and well, there was absolutely nothing at all we could fault. If we had to give it 10 out 10, we would be giving it 15 out of 10. It was an incredible house and such a lovely house for a stay. The only disappointing thing for us was that we couldn’t stay any longer. It was already booked out to extend our stay, but for sure, we would have loved nothing more than to have stayed longer. We are hoping to stay again and hope to in the near future again. For anyone that is looking for a beautiful house, where the hosts are just so lovely and accommodating, then this is definitely your spot to go. James and Mary were so lovely and genuine and checking to see if we were all ok, during our stay. Highly highly recommend it and we are just hoping to come back soon. The pictures that you see online are exactly as you see upon entering the house. Every little detail to the house was carefully designed by the hosts and really thought out. Also, another bonus for people, is that it's walking distance to the local village. For any tourists looking to book a stay here, we know for sure you won't be disappointed. The village has a nice supermarket and some lovely pubs around for food and music. And even though we're Irish, we loved looking out at the cows/cattle across the field every day. (So I know any tourists would love this extra bonus) As I've said already, we're very fussy people and well this house was well above any of our expectations. Genuinely, you will absolutely love your stay here, if you choose "Teach de Barra". Thanks again to the really welcoming hosts. Rose and family

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Corofin, County Clare, is this stunning three-bedroom dormer bungalow, Teach De Barra.

Enjoying a wonderful location adjacent to Lough Atedaun and the River Fergus, as well as a stylish interior, The Cottage is a fabulous pet-friendly dwelling for a group or family of six embarking on their next getaway to Ireland.

Be welcomed into the large kitchen/diner, where you will find everything, you need to conjure up delicious feasts, ready for your loved ones to enjoy at one of two dining tables, one which benefits from a position in front of the electric fire.

On warmer days, you can enjoy your meals alfresco out on your very own private patio.

Just off the kitchen, you will find a handy utility area for your convenience.

When its time to relax, head to the spacious sitting room with plenty of plush seating to relax on, a Smart TV and a contemporary electric fire.

Completing the ground floor is a lovely double bedroom served by a well-appointed shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you will discover two further bedrooms, a second double with its own en-suite shower room, and a generous super-king-size with sloping ceilings.

Your local amenities can be found in Corofin, where you can dine at O’Riains Bar, Bofey Quinns Bar & Restaurant and the Yellow Submarine, or stock up on essentials at one of two convenience stores.

From here you can easily access The Burren National Park, where you can enjoy leisurely strolls and exceptional views and scenery.

Next stop is Ennis, home to the fascinating Ennis Friary, Clare Museum, the excellent Ennis Golf Club, Calre Abbey and a variety of restaurants and pubs to suit every taste and budget.

For a day along the coast, make the drive over to Lahinch, where you can beachcombe the shores, or make your way up to the ruins of Dough Castle which overlook the Inagh River.

Continue onto Doolin, where you can hike along the Cliffs of Moher, explore the nearby Doonagore Castle, or indulge in traditional Irish pub fayre at the 19th-century Gus O’Connors Pub.

All this and more awaits at Teach De Barra.
