“Molls Cottage ”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This holiday retreat is beautifully presented. It's almost a dolls house with a high spec finish. Molls Cottage is perfectly located along the picturesque Wild Atlantic-way between the city of Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, nestled in the lovely small harbour village of Ballyvaughan. This is a very well managed and organised getaway retreat with a very relaxing feel with all the comforts of home. Would highly recommend

“Ideal location for touring west clare”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just spent two weeks at Molls Cottage in Ballyvaughan.
We had a very enjoyable experience. Lovely cottage, decorated to a very high standard, all our requirements were met.
The free Wi-Fi was a real bonus!
Susan the owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with.
We loved sitting in the Kitchen at breakfast each morning enjoying the lovely views.
Very peaceful surroundings.
Would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to family and friends. Hope to return again in the future.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I have just completed a weeks stay in Molls Cottage.its a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. It is spotlessly clean and furnished delightfully. A lot of thought has gone into the provision of equipment to make it comfortable for guests. Ample parking and excellent WiFi.it was delightful to sit having breakfast every morning in the dining kitchen looking out at the mountains.It is 500 yards from the village centre where there is a well stocked grocers selling fresh home made fruit scones that are addictive. There are plenty of eating options about the village. Tea rooms called An Fear Gorta on the sea front is a must . The selection of cakes there is out of this world.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our stay at Molls Cottage was wonderful. Susan met us upon arrival and went through all the ins and outs of the cottage. The cottage is beautifully situated in the Burren and centrally located for many day trips; Cliffs of Moher, Aillwee Cave, Galway, Our Lady of Knock, and more. The small quaint village of Ballyvaughn was thoroughly enjoyable. We met so many great people at the local pub, O'Loclainn's and especially loved Margaret!

Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Molls cottage is a traditional Irish cottage in beautiful picturesque Ballyvaughan in the Burren, Co. Clare. It's the perfect location from which to explore the local area. The cottage is lovely and inviting and has great views and is a short walk to the village amenities and the seafront. Lots of space and all the mod cons you could require for your stay. I highly recommend a stay in Molls cottage if you're visiting Co. Clare :-)

“Molls Cottage is very homely and comfortable.”
Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

It is everything described in the advert - including warm, clean and central. Phyllis the caretaker was always on hand if we had a question. Its ideal for a family and near a supermarket...don’t forget to light the turf fire - as Phyllis said you don’t need to use the storage heaters as the fire heats the whole house and so our electricity bill after one month was practicaly zero . It’s a new building with an old romantic feel to it and the lawns outside are impeccably kept so we had a BBQ and football games being blessed with good weather mostly. Regarding our big group needs - a bigger fridge with a freezer-compartment was our only suggestion which we were told was on the way – so I couldn’t recommend the cottage highly enough. Thanks Phyllis and Susan.

“Really fantastic, truly lovely cottage in one of the best locations in Ireland”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family holiday was a staycation this year and we stayed in both hotels and self catering accommodation - Moll's Cottage really was one of the most relaxed, peaceful and safest places we have ever stayed. The children loved it and it was totally safe to let them run around the garden. The village is a stones throw from the cottage with great pubs, restaurants and shops. The pretty harbour is also 5 minutes walk. All in all it is perfect for family's big and small, older people will also love it as there are bedrooms/bathroom downstairs.
