Holiday Rental House
A charming home on its own private grounds and a one minute walk to Ballyvaughan village and the sea front. There are three bedrooms (1 king size with ensuite; 1 double and 1 single) ; bathroom ; sitting room with open fireplace and a lovely kitchen opening to a patio with views of the Burren hills. A stroll to the village will lead you to the many pubs and restaurants which offer great food and atmosphere and also to the grocery shops and craft/gift shops. The beach is five minutes from the house and the Burren, famous for its karst landscape, flora and fauna is right on your doorstep. The house is on the Wild Atlantic Way and is within a half hour from the Cliffs of Moher. Shannon International Airport is 45 minutes drive and Dublin Aiport is less than 3 hours.

What a lovely property and host. Possibly the cleanest,most well equipped house we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Everything you could possibly need topped off with a fantastic welcome gift, which included the all important tea and biccies. Nicely situated on the edge of the village so lovely and quiet but within very short walking distance of local pubs, restaurants and cafe. A real treat . We had a lovely time here and will definitely book again

A lovely clean, neat, quiet and peaceful house, with a view from the living room of fields and nearby limestone hills, yet within minutes of Ballyvaughan for local shops and restaurants. Walks from the door (first 200ms on the main road) to quiet farmland and after a couple of miles Ailwee Cave - lunch and back home! Great central spot for touring any part of the Burren. Third visit and no doubt more to follow. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a family holiday in this very comfortable, clean and well equipped home. There is an outside area with garden furniture to relax in and enjoy the view and also off road parking. The owner Marie is very friendly and can inform you about the village and places of interest to visit. She kindly left us with some home made scones/jam, a bottle of wine, smoked salmon and soda bread. What a welcome ! The cottage is a few minutes walk to the local Spar convenience store and souvenir shop with tourist information. A few minutes walk around the corner and you will see the sea. There are several bars and restaurants in this small village and also a village hall where there is a farmer's market on Saturdays and a craft sale on Sundays. Pop in and meet the locals. There is always a warm welcome to enjoy. I would recommend Monk's at the Pier for the excellent menu. Enjoy sitting outside with a view of the sea. You may enjoy some lively Irish music in some of the bars. We had such a wonderful holiday enjoying the panoramic views along the Wild Atlantic Way, the Burren and especially the Ring of Kerry. Orchard cottage was a fantastic base for our touring holiday.

Well equipped, bright, beautifully furnished, comfortable house, a short walk from the village. Perfect location for a Burren holiday and the wine, brown bread, cheese and smoked salmon were a lovely bonus! Can't wait to make a return visit.

The house was perfect, so clean and bright with lovely furnishings. The owner had thought of everything and we really appreciated the welcome pack of locally smoked salmon, butter, milk, tea, brown bread - and fresh scones which she replenished during the week! We loved being just a short walk away from the village which was so picturesque and had excellent eating places. The walks and scenic drives were most enjoyable - even the Ailwee Caves being within walking distance on a most peaceful road track with some of the very special Burren flowers to be seen along the way. Flaggy Shore was another special place. All in all definitely to be recommended.

We had a great stay at Orchard Cottage for a week. Marie met us and showed us through the cottage - very clean and well equipped with all the necessary appliances, lovely large kitchen area - very comfortable cottage. Maire also left us a hamper with lots of goodies which was very nice. The cottage is off the main road with off-street parking. The village of Ballyvaughan is great, nice bars and restaurants - seafood restaurant is very busy so definitely need to book. There is also a very quaint whiskey bar in town - very popular with a huge selection of whiskies. We had great day trips out to the Cliffs of Moher, Galway, walked around The Burren etc. - plenty to do in the surrounding area. Marie was very friendly and extremely helpful. Would highly recommend this lovely cottage to anyone. Bill and Christa
