    “The house is in a stunning location, 5 mins drive from the M18, 2 mins drive from Quin and 15 mins drive from Ennis.”

    ...

    Received a very warm welcome from Maria and Tony, and Maria's fresh homemade Scones were delicious, also provided was milk, tea and coffee. The house is very traditional and beautiful from the outside, and has recently been modernised inside to an exceptional standard, lovely lounge, hallway, and large kitchen, and large bathroom, with toilet, separate bath and shower are on the ground floor, upstairs one double bedroom has onsuite, with separate access to it for the other 2 bedrooms, one double and one large twin, the house in a very quiet spot away from the main road into Quin, surrounded by meadows (the clue was in the name) and plenty of wildlife as well as cattle. There is a driveway to the rear of the property with ample parking. Quin has amongst other shops, a Groceries/Bakery shop, pharmacy and 3 bars, we was recommended the Abbey Tavern for food by Tony and wasn't disappointed, after a meal you can walk it off around the Quin Friary. We would definitely stay again, especially as its a great base to explore County Clare, Galway and Limerick. Once again, thank you Maria and Tony for sharing your family home with us.
