Interaction with Guests
We provide as much advice as possible but live 3 hours away. Our neighbour/ caretaker can usually solve any problems.
Clew Bay is one of the most beautiful on the west coast of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. The house looks out over several islands to Clare Island and Croagh Patrick mountain. The location is in a farming and fishing community, who are present all year round. The house is about 200 metres from the shore from where tide goes out for over 3 kilometres, leaving wonderful sandy walks, and great foraging opportunities. In summer the wildflowers are abundant and some are rare; in winter the shore is a destination for many migratory birds including a large flock of Brent Geese. It is as interesting in winter as it is in high season.
The scenery of the area is magnificent and extensive and a car is essential, particularly as we are only 200 metres off the Wild Atlantic Way, but it is also ideal for cycling; bicycles are for hire locally and the Greenway is easily accessible. Knock airport is about an hour away, Dublin about 4 hours.
Other Things to Note
There is so much of interest and to do and see that a week or fortnight can be spent doing something different each day - the Atlantic Drive on Achill Island is one of the truly dramatic coastal drives. NB. MINIMUM LET IS 7 NIGHTS USUALLY CHANGING OVER ON SATURDAYS. A WEEKLY RATE €1200 APPLIES IN JULY & AUGUST ALSO AT EASTER WEEK, CHRISTMAS, HALLOW'EEN & NEW YEAR
Sandhill is our family holiday home and is much used by us and it is very personally furnished with oil paintings etc. We want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do. There are plenty of stores which guests are welcome to use, but we do ask that they are replaced if finished, so that life is simple for the next inhabitants. Pets are welcome by arrangement but we do prefer no smoking in the house itself. We do not have a bin collection, so we ask guests to take all their refuse to the dump near Newport. If this is not possible please make arrangements direct with Kevin, the caretaker, who may be able to remove it at a charge of €10 per bag, which should be paid to him. If refuse is left without payment to Kevin, we will charge €10 per bag against the damage deposit.
