    It has excellent facilities but is in need of some tlc!! Upstairs room was great except bed was rickety and headboard falling apart Downstairs, the ensuite room was comfortable but furniture was so musty we could not unpack and lived out of our suitcase!! Downstairs double room bed was uncomfortable and squeaky. We had to light woodstove as there were no instructions for storage heaters(couldn't get them working)Stove also needs attention Considering present Covid I don't think house was adequately cleaned. Light switches and sockets were visibly dirty.We left the house considerably cleaner than we found it.We appreciated the little touches like tea and coffee and hand-wash etc but for the price we paid our expectations were not met.

The property

This charming, detached County Clare cottage is situated in a peaceful, rural hamlet just two miles from the small fishing village of Carrigaholt and 7 miles from Kilkee in County Clare.

Perfect for a family or group, your County Clare cottage can sleep up to seven people in four bedrooms, with en-suite facilities available, and offers open plan living accommodation with a homely and welcoming feel.

Guests will love the quiet location of their holiday cottage, which is just two miles from the sea and Carrigaholt's beach.

Enjoy a spot of swimming in Carrigaholt, try your hand at fishing or see if you can spot dolphins on a special boat trip!

If the seaside is your thing you will love a visit to Kilkee with its Blue Flag beach; sunbathe, play in the sea or treat the children to a surf lesson in the summer holidays at Kilkee Surf School!

If you wish to explore the delights of County Clare a little further from your holiday cottage, you will find much to tempt you.

Historic Kilrush is an easy drive away, home to a lovely marina from which you can take a ferry to the nearby, monastic Scattery Island, as are a selection of colourful coastal towns and villages along Clare's west coast including Spanish Point, where many ships of the Spanish Armada were shipwrecked, Lahinch, which offers superb views of the North Atlantic, and Miltown Malbay.

After a busy day exploring return to your County Clare cottage and gather your thoughts with an evening tipple in the large, peaceful garden, before curling up in front of the warming woodburning stove.

A great opportunity for a coastal cottage holiday to revive the senses, in a lovely part of Ireland.

A short drive takes you to the charming seaside town of Kilkee, which overlooks a mile-long horseshoe bay, with a safe and sandy Blue Flag beach, and is reputed to be the safest bathing place in Ireland. Kilkee is home to the Kilkee Surf School, popular Waterworld with its range of indoor water attractions, an 18-hole championship golf course, a host of lively pubs and bars and a selection of restaurants serving the local speciality, seafood.
