We were in Clare for our annual pilgrimage to the Clare Burren Marathon Challenge. On this occasion we decided to stay at Drumcreehy House. At first we thought that being about 2.5km away from the nearest restaurants in Ballyvaughan would be a problem but the peaceful setting, friendly welcome, well presented bedrooms, super breakfast and the honesty bar more than...

And although a small community, decent dinner choices nearby. A pretty setting and great location... More

Very pretty property with nicely appointed rooms. A very nice breakfast was included. We stayed just one night and found the location very well situated to drive the Wild Atlantic to the Cliffs of Moher.
