“Fine if heating system corrected”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The house is a modern bungalow, beautifully located and easy to find. It is very central for the purposes of visiting north County Clare. As such it suited our purpose. Unfortunately the house was filled with fumes from the oil heating system. The owner did not reply to a phone call made on the evening of our arrival or later during the week. When we made the situation known to his brother who lives next door he replied that this "happened before". No one came to our assistance so we had to keep the windows opened while we were in the house. As the Oil Burner is situated in the Hot Press all the bed linen and towels smelled of oil. Luckily I brought some of my own but my friend had to go out to purchase sheets and towels. I could only recommend this house If the heating system got fixed

I m sorry that there was a smell of oil. I did get a missed call and voicemail from you the day before you were due to leave, but your number was blocked as private, so I had no way to contact you back.I did send you a message at the time via this booking website to let me know your number and I would ring you back,but I never heard back from you until now. As this message explained, we did have a problem with the heating a few months ago. We did get it fixed and also thought we had sorted out the problem with the smell of oil. This was all done at the end of May, and we have had various people staying there since then. Yours was the first complaint that the smell of oil was back, and I apologise for this. I went to the house the day after you left and agree that there was a smell of oil in the utility room, but I m not sure I d agree that it was all over the house. When we investigated it, we found and old sheet at the bottom of the hot press which still had some oil on it. Once we removed this and did a full clean out again,the smell was gone. We have had people staying in the house since then, and they have not reported any problem. I can only apologise again that you felt that the smell was that bad, and if I d been aware of it sooner I would have tried to resolve it at the time.

Nice house, equipped with all what one needs. House is located a few kilometres from the centre of Kilfenora, but it is easy to reach. We didn't met the house owner, but he called us from time to time to ensure everything was fine.

“Fantastic House in a great Location.”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Had the pleasure of staying here in August this year. We had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful, spotless clean, and very big and spacious, there are four generous sized bedrooms and one ensuite and plenty of open space for the kids to play and two donkeys on the site. We were able to bring our dog as well which was a great bonus. The owners were very obliging and I had to text them for something and they were straight back onto us, nothing seemed a bother for them. It’s a great base for exploring Clare. Lisdoonvarna is only a short drive away, (great playground for the kids there and few nice pubs playing tradition music) and we also also did a tour of the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Caves and went surfing in Lahinch which was great fun. We had dinner one night in a really nice restaurant/pub called Vaughans which is in Kilfenora village, and we had a drink in Linnanes, barman Gerard was very friendly and welcoming. Father Ted used Kilfenora when they were filming and we would have liked to go and see the “Father Ted” house but didn’t get a chance to, but we are already planning on another visit next year and we will definitely stay here again.

“Wow fantastic house in an ideal location”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had the best holiday ever at the beginning of AUgust for two weeks. The house is absolutely beautiful, spacious and full of all the ameneties you would need. JJ and Steven were easy to deal with and the location is excellent for kilfenora, lisdoonvarna, and the whole of the Clare coastline

Superb parking, gardens and two donkeys across from the gate

This property is very safe for kids and ideal for families as it has four bedrooms

Booking every year from now
