Bridge House Studios is set in the heart of East Clare, 5 minutes from Killaloe town. Our gallery is housed in a 19th century cottage. The location is ideal for relaxation, outdoor pursuits and visiting the many pubs and restaurants in Killaloe.
The space is very unique with its authentic feel kept throughout all renovations. Bridge House owned by artist and printmaker Iseult O'Flynn, and attached to the Bridge House Studios Art Gallery. With two self-catering spaces up to, and over, 6 people can stay.
Guests have access to all their own living spaces and essentials, ie. Kitchens, Bathrooms...
All spaces have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and access to the river garden on the premises.
Interaction with Guests
Hosts are present in the house most of the time for any queries or questions about the self-catering spaces and the area itself.
The neighbourhood boasts glorious views and great outdoor pursuits, ie. sailing, fishing, walking... Lough Derg (River Shannon) and Moylussa (highest mountain in Clare) are just a 10 minute walk from Bridge House.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars closeby with one just a 2 minute walk up the road - The Pipers Inn. Also AnnaCarrige Brasserie and wedding venue just 5 minutes down the road.
There is plenty of parking available on site. Although not essential, a car would be the easiest form of transport as we are a 5 minute drive into Killaloe-Ballina. There is the odd bus here and there and taxis available. All info is available at the house.
This was my second stay at the farmhouse and it turned out to be as good as my first. The same attention to detail by the host Iseult that makes this quiet and cosy cottage a pleasure to stay in. It has everything you could need for self catering, it's clean and tastefully decorated with the emphasis on a quiet place to relax within easy striking distance of Killaloe, Ballina and Lough Derg. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to explore the surrounding area.
Charming cottage in a beautiful quiet setting and a great host. I spent 4 weeks here in 2014 and will definitely return. The cottage is traditional, recently restored and has all mod cons. There is a wood and turf burning stove that makes the place super cosy and warm. Iseult, the host is fantastic, making me feel very welcome from start to finish with loads of fresh linen, towels and wood for the stove!! She has loads of local knowledge and was always around to answer any questions I had. At night with the window slightly ajar you can sleep to the sound of the river which is amazing!! There are 2 bedrooms, a wet room with shower and a separate smaller bathroom all upstairs. The kitchen has all you need to do proper self catering. Would highly recommend this 2 bedroom cottage to anyone looking to stay in and around Killaloe.
