About this listing
Ideal for a deep sleep after a long flight into Shannon and a restful hub for visiting nearby attractions. The Wild Atlantic way, Cliffs of Moher, the Burren National Park and Bunratty Castle, Galway city and visiting other more distant sights are possible on a day trip. Just outside the door we have beautiful short walks, lakes, wonderful hiking trails where foxes, hares, badgers and other feral creatures are often spotted.
Originally a small two roomed thatched cottage, this 200 yr old farm cottage was converted to a two story slate roof when emigrants of the 1800's sent money home. Many renovations later we have a large bathroom and kitchen however improvements are ongoing with this quaint old world house with a modern feel.
Enjoy cooking up your own breakfast without meat, please or have a light breakfast provided.
The cottage is my home however I'm often away visiting family, on request you could have the place to yourselves

Double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, garden and hillside walks.

A born wanderer from Dublin I settled in Clare to raise my children and immerse myself in rural life and textiles. I’ve enjoyed some world travel and today I love to wander from France to Ireland and back again, walking hills and coastal paths gathering inspiration for my work and enjoying locally produced organic food, and a good read by the fire at night. I also very much enjoy welcoming people to both my homes and offering help or advice on places to visit, allowing you your space as I appreciate mine.
