Holiday Rental House
Located in one of the most breathtaking areas of North Clare, this beautiful cottage is nestled into the wild Burren landscape about 50 metres down a private lane: perfect for a 'get away from it all' holiday. It is set on its own private grounds of approximately an acre with ample parking, creating a peaceful haven. There are beautiful rural views, stone boundary walls enclosing the surrounding fields, with spectacular sunsets from the house. There are great walks directly from the house, on green roads and the Burren Way, with fabulous views of the Aran Islands.

Additional amenities & feature info
The master bedroom and twin bedroom each have an en suite bathroom and the double bedroom has direct access to the main bathroom which has a full bath. This is a luxury single storey house with great attention to detail. The open plan living area with its high ceilings is flooded with natural light as there are windows positioned carefully to catch the sun as it moves from east to west in the sky. There is a new system for wifi ( April 2017 ) at the house which we are trying out to see if it works. It may be a limited signal. Small charge will be applied for usage. There is limited mobile phone signal inside the house.

About the neighbourhood
This part of Ireland has particularly beautiful scenery. The Burren area is world renowned for its beautiful plants and landscape and a great way to visit it is by horseback. It is full of archaeological treasures from stone forts to dolmens and burial chambers dating to the megalithic era. While in the area you really must visit the Aran Islands for a back in time experience. There are many walking festivals in the Burren, nightly traditional music sessions in nearly pubs in Doolin. Lisdoonvarna hosts a matchmaking festival every September. Lahinch, Doonbeg and Ballybunion Golf courses are within easy reach for the golfing enthusiasts.
Getting around
A car is really essential to view all the area offers.
