The Milking Parlour, Magherabaun is based in a beautiful rural setting, bordered by a stream and open fields but still close to the amenities of Feakle. Based on the East Clare Walk, there is plenty to explore in the area, from the Wild Atlantic Way, the Burren to Lough Derg and Lough Graney for water based activity enthusiasts. We can provide free range eggs from our small flock of chickens and you may see our cheeky Terrier x Rogan and Wisp, our resident cat.
“I would 110% recommend staying here! It is in such a beautiful location and all the small toches that Steve and Jess have left around the cottege make the place feel so cozy and so relaxing! The stove was hot and the the house was lovely and warm, there was hot water bottles provided on each of the beds and everything thing we needed was provided. The jacuzzi is amazing!! Staying feels like your in your own private spa its the perfect getaway and Steve and Jess are great hosts and made us feel at home! Looking forward to the next time :)”

“My stay at the Birds Nest was without a doubt my favorite experience on my trip to Ireland. The view is unique and the little hut is warm and cozy. Should it be a bit cold outside, the little room can be quickly warmed up by the heater. Although space is limited, there is enough storage space under the bed for all kinds of luggage. In front of the hut, covered, there is a toaster, kettle and fridge - perfect for breakfast. As I'm not the greatest outdoors person, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the shower. The view is only screened off on one side, but the shower is positioned in such a way that it cannot be seen directly. The water is also wonderfully warm. Don't forget to take biodegradable shower gel with you as there is no drain, the water goes straight into the bottom! Of course, one should be aware that one cannot expect luxury, but if you let yourself into it you will rewarded with a truly unforgettable experience. Peter is also an experienced host and was always ready to help. I will definitely come again.”
Our home (a working farm) and The Cottages are nestled beneath Ireland's highest mountain, Corrán Tuathail. We are situated on the famous Kerry Way walking route and in the heart of the Reeks District. The collection of houses were some of the last in Ireland to be connected to the electricity grid (in 1978) due to their isolated location in one of Ireland’s most unspoiled valleys on the edge of the Killarney National Park.
“From the minute you arrive you are left under no illusion that you have chosen the perfect place to switch off and connect with nature. The minute you open the door you see the log basket by the fire and spy the soda bread and jam you know that your stay is going to be comfortable and cosy. We had the privilege of staying in the cottage for 9 nights and could have happily stayed for 9 more. The attention to details in furnishing and equipping the cottage shows that Ailsih had really thought about what her guests would like; from dressing gowns, hot water bottle to an abundance of mindful colouring books. The cottage really is a joy to spend time in.”
