The property

This beautiful, semi-detached cottage lies close to the coast in the village of Glasclune, less than four miles from the picturesque village of Doonbeg, County Clare. Well-presented throughout and lovingly-furnished, this pretty Glasclune cottage is ideal for a family holiday to Ireland. With four comfortable bedrooms, including two on the ground floor and spacious throughout, this Clare cottage offers plenty of room for everyone, including those less mobile. Two dining areas, a sitting area and a sun room make spending time enjoying home-cooked meals together easy, as well as spending time alone, tucked away in front of the oil-fired stove with a good book. Outside your lovely Glasclune cottage, you have a rear lawned garden with furniture and barbecue, so why not enjoy days in the sun dining alfresco? It’d be a shame to waste those beautiful sunny Clare days. And just a stone’s throw away, you have a stunning beach overlooking Doonbeg Bay, ideal for lazy days on the sand or a long stroll along the shore. The nearby village of Doonbeg offers a number of walking trails, including the Doonbeg Loop, a variety of watersports including surfing, scuba diving and sailing and a number of beautiful beaches and stunning cliffs, along with a good range of local pubs, restaurants and bars to fill your days and nights. Also on offer in Doonbeg are many day trips where you can visit a multitude of sites, including the Aran Islands, Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, the Ailwee Caves and Scattery Island and further afield, the towns of Kilrush and Carrigaholt offer dolphin and whale watching trips!
