The Space

The house was an original thatched cottage with a stone shed which we've converted into a double housing unit. We live in the 'shed' part , and rent the cottage. It retains a number of original features including a stone chimney breast. It has two bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, a small sitting room and a well filled book room. The bedroom upstairs has a double bed and a small ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a double and single bed. There's a divan bed in the large book room. The downstairs bathroom has a walk in shower.

Guest Access

There's wifi, a tv with most English and Irish stations, and a large garden.

Interaction with Guests

When we're here we like meeting people and we're always ready to help with travel enquiries, maps and itineraries!

The Neighborhood

Walking, the sea is 5 minutes away, and there's a great view of the Burren across the bay on a clear day. In the winter time bird migrations arrive from the arctic circle. Walking away from the sea brings you to Drumacoo (URL HIDDEN) early monastic site with a 'holy well' and further along the ruins of Tyrone House, a Georgian mansion. There's a shellfish farm in our bay and you can buy oysters, mussels and clams from Kellys the fish farmers. Kinvara, a very pretty market town with its picturesque castle is 10 minutes away by car where there are plenty of pubs often with live music, and a good selection of restaurants.

Getting Around

There is no public transport, so a car is essential unfortunately.
