Self-Catering in Co Clare?


I need advice on where to stay in Co Clare in November. We're kind of picky, as we're looking for a self-catering cottage with an ocean view, for 300-400E per week. Has anyone recently stayed in a cottage with a great view? There are so many websites out there and I feel confused!

Don't worry, I know the weather out there can be iffy in November :)

Hi bonojib. Unfortunately the cottagesI always stayed in are now private homes. You could check out dreamireland.com, goireland.com and accomodation.ie. Hopefully those might help. Cheers.

Hi bonojjb, we found a self-catering cotage on the grounds of ballinalacken castle. I'll be staying there in June, and have taken a chance as i found it on the web while lookng for homes with king size beds--don't ask, long story!!. the website is www.gentiancottage.com--it looks lovely and I'm really looking forward to staying there, I'll try to post about the accommodations when I return from my trip, in the meanwhile, check it out, you might like it.

We are going to self-cater in this area next summer and are looking at a number of places. Check out VRBO- it's a by owner site. Also, a great place on holiday-rentals.com Property 6560. Phenomenal view of sea, Aran Islands, etc.. Cheap!

We were in Ireland in November and the weather was WILD!!! On our first day it was a balmy, sunny 50 degreesF. However, by day 2, a hurricane like storm came. Despite the foul weather, it was amazing. Not a soul around! We are going in summer next so we can see the landscape under sunshine, but I'll miss our "private" Ireland. Any questions, let me know. Good luck, Sherry
