A traditional semi-detached cottage on the outskirts of one of County Clare’s musical and cultural homes, Lahinch, surrounded by rolling hills and affording views of the sea on the horizon.
On entering, you are presented with the three bedrooms, all spacious double rooms, neatly decorated with charming curtains and bed-spreads, with a well-positioned bathroom containing a shower down the hall.
In the colder months, you will be excited to use the woodburning stove, which you will find in the centre of the open-plan living area, which contains the kitchen, sitting area and dining table.
The wall-mounted TV sits in the corner, making it easy for all the family to spend time together while the food is prepared.
You will then come to your favourite room of them all; the beautiful sitting room with wraparound windows that bring the natural light in and overlook views of the endless green landscape, with the ocean in the distance.
In the warmer months you can take the kids outside and play in the garden, with its large lawned area surrounding the property, or just pop a picnic blanket down and enjoy lunch outside.
Take a trip into Miltown Malbay and you can enjoy its selection of pubs and eateries, some of which like Friel’s Pub that date back to 1895, hosting live music every weekend and some weekdays in the summer.
When the seaside is calling you, head over to Spanish Point, a very scenic sandy beach, named so because of the Spaniards who were buried there after the wreck of their Armada ships along the coast in 1588.
If it’s not enough to just see the shores, you can head over to the fishing village of Quilty where you can hire a currach and visit the site of the wreck, and then spend the rest of the day trying your hand at throwing a line or two.
This location is fantastic for getting to know the west coast of Ireland, and this holiday home is everything you need to feel right at home with your loved ones.
