Oh where do I begin...When we were looking for a place to stay in Shannon, we knew we wanted to find that special "jewel" as a means to divert ourselves from our norm back at home and be as close to nature as possible. What we didn't know was that we were gonna find the best place we had ever experienced in every way. From the moment we walked through the door and found a colorful welcome note from the family all the way to the incredible scent in the air in every room...every detail reminded us of a serenity spa or wellness retreat. Your vacation becomes complete once you immerse yourself in this calming setting. It was all so perfectly clean and welcoming. You're in for a wonderful stay! We got in early afternoon (and were so hungry after driving around and indulging the beautiful country and scenery) and before we could decide on a nearby place to eat, we saw that they had left us some bread, cheese, jams and other food items in the fridge to tide us over. Tom and Rosie are so easy to communicate with, they are incredibly helpful and willing to offer suggestions of places to go and where to eat. They even have an album especially created for guests to look at with information on pretty much everything you can do near or far... Their beautiful home is located about 10-15 mins drive away from the nearest restaurant, shops, pubs, convenience stores, gas stations. Another highlight of their place is the king size bed with an amazing mattress, comforter and pillows, although they have other full/ queen sized beds available for bigger parties as well. You're guaranteed a perfect night's rest. The shower was another experience in itself with multiple settings sure to relax any exhausted traveler after a day's worth of exploration. Their place is easy to find, Tom gave us the coordinates and very detailed information on how to get there from the Shannon airport, in case we didn't have a gps. Whether you're a couple on a special getaway or just simply want to treat yourself or even a family on a road trip...their home creates the beginning of the experience for you!!! Thank you Tom, Rosie and're the best!

From booking to leaving, our hosts, Tom and Rosie were a class act. Tom had a wealth of historical information and both gave us many suggestions for siteseeing and food. Upon arrival, we were welcomed into their home for tea, coffee and cake while chatting and giving us more information on our location. The view from their place was stunningly beautiful. Waking up in the country with a view of the lake and cows in the distance was just what we craved. We stayed for 4 nights and had plenty to do. The location is great for day trips to Ring of Kerry, Galway, Rock of Cashel, Doolin Cave and others. There were 4 of us and we had plenty of room. Beds were comfortable and there where many staple items made available to us. Would definitely stay there again on another visit.

Our host Tom was amazing with the most thorough directions to the house and great communication at all steps. And Rosie, our hostess, was such a delight! Rosie had tea and cake ready for us and was so fun and easy to hang out with; she even offered to drive us to and pick us up from the local pub. We feel like we made a new friend in Rosie.

The best Airbnb experience to date! I can't say enough about the gorgeous view, the comfortable and homey space and the thoughtfulness of Tom and Rosie. My only regret is not staying longer. I highly recommend this space. We're already trying to plan it into our next trip! Thank you a million times over Rosie and Tom- what a special memory to add to our trip.

We had a fantastic stay! Tom and Rosie and Adam could not have done more to make our stay more welcoming and warm. We cannot thank you enough, from the beautiful welcome tea and chat to the well stocked fridge and continuous text and email and finally the complete fold and return laundry service. We can't say enough about this wonderful accommodation above the lake. A hundred thousand thank you's from all of us to all of you! Will definitely see you again if we ever get back to Clare!

We arrived following a three-hour drive from Dublin and our hosts were awaiting us with tea, biscuits, good cheer, and welcome advice. That set the tone for the week. The accommodations were wonderful--an entire, very private, apartment below their main house. We almost regretted not having our family join us, there was so much room! The views were stunning (the photos do not do the scale justice). While the place is "in the middle of nowhere" it is a mere ten-minute drive from the local town and a few good restaurants. Throughout our days there our hosts were always available, even late in the evening, and would come over on a moment's notice with ideas on how to spend our day and where to eat. They encouraged us to quickly adopt the Irish mindset (rain shouldn't change your plans) and made sure we didn't miss out on anything. The location is an hour-and-a-half from the Cliffs of Moher on the Western shore, and hour from Limerick, and a pleasant drive everywhere you might want to go regardless of distance. We are considering coming back.

It was everything the pictures show and more! We had such a lovely few days stay. Tom and Rosie were so amazing and helpful. Rosie suggested we go up to Doolin caves and then take a ferry to see the cliffs. It was a perfect day and we were able to see things we wouldn't have. The apartment has everything you need to make a meal and they stock the pantry full of breakfast stuffs. There are several close restaurants that are worth a try. We did the Pipers Inn and my husband said the stuffed chicken was one of the best meals he had ever eaten. The house is also well supplied for little ones with loads of books and a side bedroom attached to the main. All around good time and we would happily go back for a longer stay.
