Green Meadows is a delightful old-fashioned cottage set in the heart of the Irish countryside. It has been fully renovated and is well equipped with all modern conveniences.
These self catering accommodations are suitable for people seeking peace and tranquillity, but also families with children. The children are welcome to take part in milking the cows, or to collect the breakfast eggs.
The area is peaceful and relaxing, but within easy reach of a wide variety of amenities and attractions. We provide information folders and the Jim Robinson map in each cottage.
From Kilfenora, you can drive right through the heart of the Burren to the Aillwee Cave and Ballyvaughan. From there you can follow the coast road via the beaches of Fanore to the fishing village of Doolin, famous for it's traditional Irish music sessions and day trips to the Aran Islands. Not to be missed, just south of Doolin, are the Cliffs of Moher and a couple of miles on, you will arrive in Lahinch with it's beautiful beach and championship golf course. Carry on to Corofin and from there back to Kilfenora and you have never been more than 10 miles away from Kilfenora village.
If you like fishing, Lickeen Lake is nearby as is Inchiquin Lake at Corofin. And again, within a less than 10 mile radius, you have the whole Atlantic coastline to your disposal.
In the evenings you can enjoy traditional Irish music and set dancing in Kilfenora and we'll be happy to teach you a few steps, so you can join in yourself.
On arrival, you are welcomed with home baking and you are always welcome to visit our home for a cup of tea and a chat.
Looking forward to seeing you!

The Burren Farm Cottages are situated on the edge of the world famous Burren region, which is an unspoiled part of Ireland. Here in the Burren, the bare exposed limestone which is up to 780 metres in thickness, covers an area of 250 square kilometres. Great slabs of rock are almost as flat and undisturbed as they were when they were formed in the warm shallow seas of the Carboniferous ocean 340 million years ago. The Burren does not mean barren; people have settled here since Stone Age times. Evidence of their habitations and tombs are all around you.
The unusual flora of the Burren has attracted huge interest and attention over the years. Rare and spectacular plants grow in abundance throughout this unique limestone region. Unusual butterflies and moths feed on the flora and the hazel scrub. Pine forests give cover to the larger animals including Pine Marten.
We had a fabulous time at marian and martin's cottage. Not only was the cottage very cosy, comfortable and clean, we had such a warm welcome from Marian that it really made our stay very relaxing and enjoyable from the start. Despite storms and very bad weather the cottage was well heated and pleasant. Marian very kindly made scones and gave us fresh eggs from their farm, a lovely treat. The location was superb, great acccess to Burren walks and coastal regions ensuring great variety of day trips. Plenty of room for us 2 adults and 3 kids.Would highly recommend this cottage.
We loved our stay at Green Meadows . The cottage was very suitable for two couples and a great base to explore County Clare . Marian and Martin are wonderful hosts and very happy to show us their dairy farm . Highly recommend a stay
