About this listing
A simple homely retreat like place for people who are looking for peace and quiet, are happy with going back to the basics open fires, open colourful spaces and beautiful natural surroundings.
Come and take a break from the city life and rest from your travels for a few nights at an incredibly tranquil place in nature.
We are located right in the heart of the magical Burren, 10km inland from the Wild Atlantic Way, right next to the Burren Walking Trail, 30km from the Cliffs of Moher and Doolin, where you can get to the Aran Islands, and 30km from Galway, away from all the noise and hectic of the city.
A beautiful spot on the side of a hill overlooking a valley and turlough (disappearing lake) surrounded by nothing but open countryside, hills, wild goats, unique flora and fauna and beautiful sunsets.
This place is simple in material terms but rich in so many other ways.
If you value peace and quiet, a friendly colourful environment, space to stretch and be, being surrounded by beautiful nature, then you will most likely have a wonderful time here.
This is also a great place for artists, the flora and fauna is very unique and the landscape beautiful and the light especially in the evening creates a magical athmosphere.
You'll be staying in a 300 year old traditinal irish cottage with wood burning stoves for heating and relaxation.
Water comes from the rain via a gravity fed eco rain water collection set up for washing and cooking and from a nearby spring for drinking.
We have converted the attic into sleeping platforms.
There'll be a mattress each for your use up there. There is room for up to three people sharing in one attic room and 2 people in the other attic room.
We rent out the house to one family/couple/person at a time, so you'll have the house for yourself as we have our living spaces outside of the house.
There is a bright, sheltered space for yoga, meditation, strechting,painting in the old barn,that is particularly nice in the morning.
There is a Pub in the nearby village (2km away) that serves fresh fish on a friday and has an irish music session on each friday night.
There is also a cafe about 2km from the house.
Other Things to Note
There is limited WIFI access in the house , enough to make your travel arrangements and send emails.
As our water supply for showers and the toilet comes from the rain (an eco rainwater collection set up), we ask you to be generally aware of the amount of water you use.
Because believe it or not,even though it's common belief of people visiting Ireland, that it is always raining, there are times when there is no rain for a few weeks at a time :-) !
