The property

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Bunratty village is this apartment-style property, Ard Cnoic, which is attached to the owner’s own dwelling.

This bolthole makes a great spot for a couple to spend quality time together and to discover County Clare’s rolling countryside and craggy Atlantic coastline.

Enter Ard Cnoic to find the well-equipped kitchen, containing the essentials to cook up a storm by making use of the utensils, induction hob, microwave and fridge.

In here, you will also find a washing machine and a tumble dryer, ensuring that you can washing and dry your clothes with ease after a busy day in the countryside.

Settle down for your meals within the spacious sitting/dining room, with the dining table perfectly positioned for admiring the far-reaching views of Shannon Estuary as you tuck into your home-cooked delight.

Look forward to unwinding of an evening upon the plush seating arrangement and flicking the TV with Sky, whilst the multi solid-fuel stove crackles in the background and offers a gentle warmth.

A brightly decorated double bedroom with good wardrobe space and a sleek wet room, containing a walk-in shower, basin and WC, complete the interior.

Take dining outdoors by opening up the doors and settling down on the picnic bench seating, where the views of the Shannon Estuary can be further admired.

For your amenities, head to the bustling village of Bunratty, home to many shops, restaurants and bars, including the famous Durty Nellies, a fine restaurant situated in a thatched-roof cottage, which was once a bar for castle guards.

Immerse yourself in the village’s past by visiting Bunratty Castle, an authentic medieval fortress with 26 acres of woodland, nature trails, Viking playground and idyllic walled gardens to explore, before sampling Bunratty Meade at Bunratty Winery.

Venture further afield and visit the city of Limerick, which enjoys its own unique charm with its Georgian architecture, pubs playing traditional Irish music, grand museums and historical landmarks including King John's Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral and St John's Cathedral.

For those feeling more adventurous, explore the endearing Woodcock Hill Bog or kayak along the gentle waters of River Shannon Estuary.

Ard Cnoic makes a wonderful getaway for an adventure with your partner.
