Welcome to Shannonside, our family cottage on The Wild Atlantic Way. Situated in Doonaha, as quiet a spot as you can imagine. On Sundays you might hear the sound of church bells, shouts from The GAA Field or Vincent dropping by to care for the lawn, but that's about it. The magnificient views across our garden and meadow look out across the Shannon to Kerry. Quarter of an acre, mostly wild meadow plus orchard and garden areas .

The space
Loop Head has been named by the Irish Times as the best place to holiday in Ireland. The local beach Glasheen is secluded, don't expect a beach bar, deck chair hire or even an ice cream van. Use the picnic blanket from the cupboard and, if you get there early, you might be the only one there. Full ameneties can be found a 15 minute drive away at the bustling seaside town of Kilkee.
The original cottage was very traditional with thick walls. Additions over the years have made a more spacious, user friendly home, but with history at its heart. The history is important to us, we have integrated old pressed glass lampshades and inherited pieces into the decor. In terms of modern, well it's this: we have an electric oven (next to the traditional peat fired Stanley Range), fridge/freezers, dish washer, washing machine, microwave and a Cuisinart slow cooker. You will find beds made up, with towels and guest toiletries also provided.
We have purposely fashioned this as our get away from it all retreat, there's no tv, no wifi (ok confession - we hotspot for a bit of Netflix or to catch up on emails). There are plenty of things to do on your visit; the local village of Carrigaholt is notable for restuarants and pubs as well as its Dolphin Watch. Please note that there is no pub, bar or shop in immediate walking distance. Kilrush is great for shopping or a daytrip to the enchanting deserted island of Scattery which is a short boat ride away. The walled Vandeleur Gardens are also in Kilrush, along with the museum of Irish Rural Life, fancy Doonbeg golf course is a short drive, whilst further afield is the Historic City of Limerick, The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, Galway Bay etc. But what are you doing driving? Enjoy the calm.
