Recently renovated, our stylish, open plan barn conversion is set in the idyllic rural landscape of County Clare. It adjoins our 150 year old stone farmhouse, and offers a self-contained holiday space ideal for those who like peace and quiet 'off the beaten track'. The clever use of space means you have your own kitchen, dining and sleeping area with a small en suite shower/toilet and the living space includes a unique Bluthner grand piano for the musically minded!
“Nicola's cottage is a dream. It's quite, and cozy with thoughtful little touches. The chair by the fireplace was my favorite part of the weekend, quietly reading by the fire. We arrived late and Nicola has already started the fire for us so the cottage was warm and welcoming. And she was accommodating with our schedule on check-out day which made planning our trip a breeze. It was like a mini country get-a-way and retreat weekend! Thank you Nicola! We hope to return again soon!”
The Milking Parlour, Magherabaun is based in a beautiful rural setting, bordered by a stream and open fields but still close to the amenities of Feakle. Based on the East Clare Walk, there is plenty to explore in the area, from the Wild Atlantic Way, the Burren to Lough Derg and Lough Graney for water based activity enthusiasts. We can provide free range eggs from our small flock of chickens and you may see our cheeky Terrier x Rogan and Wisp, our resident cat.
“We just got engaged here !!!! pure bliss ideal romantic getaway to completely switch off. All the touches from the stove lighting when we arrived late to having milk bread eggs and water in the fridge just made it so homely . The hot tub at night was pure magic you really could be anywhere . Thanks again Steve and Jess the milking parlour will definitely be a regular for us after such an incredible few days !!”
'Boreen' is a cosy, handcrafted cabin hidden in the hills with uninterrupted tranquility & stunning views of the countryside. Be one of the first to stay in this newly refurbished Airbnb. Completed in late December 2019, everything in the cabin has been custom-designed and built to give you a completely unique and incredibly special experience. Just a ten-minute drive from the hugely popular twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina, Boreen feels a world away while on the doorstep of exploration.
“We feel so lucky to have spent a few days at this comfortable, cozy, clean and unique cabin set in a spectacular setting! What a perfect place to be in solitude as a family, where we could open up the doors to the beautiful outside, our children could play in the creek and explore the ruins, and we could wake up to the amazing scenery surrounding us. We hiked, read books snuggled on the porch, played the fun board games found in the cabin (the kids loved the toys, games and art supplies!) and enjoyed a relaxing, quiet time together. We truly appreciate our time spent at Steve’s beautiful cabin, especially during this crazy time. Truly amazing place and we hope to be back!”
