The property

Resting along Ireland’s stunning Wild Atlantic Way, this detached cottage can be found along a quiet coastal road on the outskirts of Miltown Malbay in County Clare. Situated just over a mile from the beach at White Strand, this traditional cottage is a superb base for discovering all that the West Coast has to offer. Set over two floors with a variety of rooms on each floor, the ground floor features a fitted kitchen and dining area where you can enjoy family meals together while you discuss the day’s adventures. Also on this level are three of the four bedrooms and a shower room, which may be of benefit to less mobile guests. On the first floor are a double bedroom with an en-suite and a sitting area with fantastic views out towards the Atlantic Ocean, and a warming open fire, perfect for chilly autumn evenings. Access to the lawned garden is via sliding doors from the dining area, a great spot to sit and relax with a cool drink as you plan the following day’s activities. Miltown Malbay is a thriving town, famous for the Willie Clancy Festival, a superb week of music, dance and ‘craic’! The town is also home to a selection of shops and a range of traditional pubs, most of which showcase live Irish music on a regular basis. Discover the majestic Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most popular attractions, or venture along the coast and catch a glimpse of the Burren, a vast and wild limestone landscape which will provide many fantastic photo opportunities. For beach fans, head to the seaside village of Lahinch, home to a Blue Flag beach, surfing and golf, plus the whole region is cradled by sandy beaches, rugged seascapes, and lush rolling countryside. This cottage is a wonderful place to enjoy your Irish holiday at any time of the year.
