We have just returned from a fantastic week at this cottage and will certainly be looking at going back next year. Just off the main street in Kilfenora, the cottage is close enough to walk to local shops and pubs yet just far enough away to give total peace and quiet. A mix of the old and new, the main living room brought back wonderful childhood memories of sitting in front of the fire chatting for hours whilst the newer kitchen/diner felt like we were in a new built house. The owner lives close by so all needs can be catered for.
Local sights that must be visited are the Cliffs of Moher and the Ailwee Caves and a stop off for a bit of surfing in Lahinch is a must. The beach at Fanore is one of the best we have ever been to and with so many ghost stories abound my teenagers loved the stay during Halloween.
No stay in Kilfenora can be complete until the Bacon and Cabbage dinner from Vaughan's has been tried - you may struggle to finish a Guinness after such good food... more
