Location:
Within 2.5 hours of Dublin and 40 minutes from Galway City, Suaimhneas is perfectly located to explore the beauty and history of the Burren and the Co. Clare, Co. Galway area. Although there is public transport links from Galway and Dublin we would highly recommend using a car to get the most out of your break in the Burren.

Anout the Area:
The Burren covers 1% of the land surface of Ireland and is approximately 250 square kilometres in size. Most of the Burren is designated a Special Area of Conservation to protect this extremely unusual habitat. The Burren National Park is located in the south-eastern corner of the Burren and is approximately 1500 hectares in size. The Park land was bought by the Government for nature conservation and public access. It contains examples of all the major habitats within the Burren: Limestone Pavement, Calcareous grassland, Hazel scrub, Ash/hazel woodland, Turloughs, Lakes, Petrifying springs, cliffs and Fen.

Some of the other features of the area are The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's top Visitor attractions and are a designated UNESCO Geo Park. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare.

The three Aran Islands, Inis Mór Island (Big Island), Inis Meáin Island (Middle island) and Inis Oírr Island (East island) are situated in a north westerly, south easterly direction at the mouth of Galway Bay, Ireland. They are famous for their geological formation, historical monuments and their linguistic and cultural heritage. The Irish(Gaelic) language is still spoken here and in the twenty first century all native born islanders are bilingual in both Irish and English.

The area around Suaimhneas is excellent for hiking in the hills of the Burren and horse riding. Also located a 45 minute drive away is the one of Ireland's best known surfing locations Lahinch Beach and the much quieter and less well known Fanore Beach.

Enid was a wonderful host with excellent accomadations. Everything was exactly as pictured, in a very cozy home in beautiful countryside. Enid was kind and extremely helpful in navigating the country for some of the best sites! Not to mention a delicious and extremely filling breakfast in the morning. We had a wonderful stay and wished we'd been there longer.

What a host! What a property! What a welcome! Enid is a wonderful host and her property is in a beautiful setting. It is a very difficult thing - to make strangers feel welcome and relaxed in your home, but Enid does it with ease. We were sorry to leave and fingers crossed, will be back next year!

Enid gave us a very warm and friendly welcome at her house. The rooms were nice and the homemade breakfast with fresh fruits was delicious and can't be topped. She gave us helpful information about local points of interest and we had inspiring discussions with her. We can highly recommend her as a host.

Enid User ProfileEnid is a superhost.

Enid is a Complementary Health Therapist/Tutor/English Language Teacher.

I relocated to South Galway to start life afresh in a most beautiful enriching landscape. I have therapy rooms in my house that I work from and I teach Massage Therapy, Aromatherapy, Diet/Nutrition in Gort and I also teach English Language Classes in Ennis Co Clare. I love heading out into the Burren to climb the mountains especially in the spring when the wild flowers and fauna are abundant in this spectacular landscape. I love to entertain my friends and family at home, we have many evenings where great food and wine are shared with some scintillating conversation and great Irish humour. I love to meet new people and hear their stories, traditions and experiences from around the world. My home is a happy care-free home where friends and family want to come to relax and unwind and to re-energise.

I look forward to meeting with you.
