The area is peaceful and relaxing, situated well away from traffic noise and light pollution – on clear nights, the clarity of the sky and stars is breath-taking. However it is still within easy reach of a wide variety of amenities and attractions. We provide information folders and the maps in each cottage, offering information on local attractions, as well as contact details and emergency numbers.
From Kilfenora, you can drive right through the heart of the Burren to the Aillwee Cave and Ballyvaughan, or you can follow the coast road from the fishing village of Doolin via the beach of Fanore to Ballyvaughan, one of the most scenic coastal drives in the country if not the world! Doolin has a long heritage of musical association - it was home to tin whistle player Micho Russell, after whom an annual weekend festival is named, and is famed for its traditional Irish music sessions. An annual folk festival and beer festival have recently been added to its attactions, and day trips to the Aran Islands are available from here.
The spectacular Cliffs of Moher, which have featured in both Harry Potter and The Princess Bride, are situated just south of Doolin, and are the second most popular visitor attraction in Ireland. A couple of miles on, you will arrive in Lahinch with its beautiful beach and highly-acclaimed championship golf links. Surfing is hugely popular here and several schools and rental companies can provide everyone from the complete beginner to the seasoned surfer with everything you need.
