Anna is a fantastic host and her cottage is a gem in the heart of Clare Island. We felt so comfortable and at home and the scenery is just stunning. Anna provided everything we needed and we can't wait to return. I would highly recommend Anna's cottage and a trip to Clare Island.

Anna-Lena's home was fantastic! It felt like we were in the middle of the countryside between hills and on the sea while still being accessible to the town and on the main road. Anna-Lena and her son Olof were so friendly and welcoming, picking us up at the ferry and making sure we were taken care of. We loved the cozy feel of the place and we were also able to use the kitchen while we were there which was great. Clare Island and Anna-Lena's was one of my favorite Irish experiences and we will be back!

When we arrived the house was very well prepared and ready for us. The kitchen was well stocked for our breakfast and our room was very comfortable. Our host is really nice and gave us lots of local information which was very helpful. Her house is about a mile from the pier with a lovely garden . It is an easy walk to the pub and the restaurant and we had a lovely time. Anna Lena is a very warm person and we hope to return soon . Clare island is well worth a visit but be careful , you might want to stay forever !!
