“Beautiful cosy cottage with all mod cons in the heart of Clare.”

We (myself, my husband and our two daughters aged 7 and 2) booked this cottage for our wedding/honeymoon. We arrived on Thursday and got married in Vaughan's pub (around the corner) on Saturday.We then stayed for another 6 days and explored all the wonderful sights Clare has to offer.
Our host Anna Maria was a pleasure to deal with from the start. She made everything very easy for us and we knew that she was always on hand to assist us should we need any help. We were even surprised with a lovely card and bottle of champagne on our arrival on account of our upcoming celebration :) We also decided that we wanted to stay an extra night which was sorted with just a quick text to Anna Maria who very generously allowed us to stay.
The cottage itself is beautiful and while it retains all the original features of an old Irish cottage, it also has everything you need for modern-day living - great kitchen facilities, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer etc. It has everything you would want even a lovely table outside to eat al fresco (weather permitting!).
The cottage is also perfectly located in the lovely village of Kilfernora where you can find Vaughan's pub (which does beautiful food and a ceili every Sunday night) as well as The Burren Centre. The village is also close to pretty much all the sights in Clare. We saw the Cliffs of Moher, Moher Open Farm (twice), The Aaran Islands, Aliwee Caves, Father Ted's house and lots more.
All in all couldn't recommend this cottage or location highly enough.We'd go back tomorrow if we could and will certainly be returning in the future.

We stayed in Fair Green Cottage a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed our experience both of the beautiful cottage, and the area as a whole. The cottage itself is so quaint and comfortable we were so delighted the minute we arrived. The owner and family could not do enough to make sure that our stay was memorable, which they managed to do by the special little things they did for us throughout our stay, especially bringing us logs for the log burner in the living room which we enjoyed each evening to great effect. The cottage is broken into two parts, there is the older original dwelling, really quite unspoiled, and very Irish if that is what you are after, it has a big stone fireplace in the living room coupled with the log burner, adequate comfortable furniture, and everything that you would need to make this a home from home. As well as the old part, there is a fantastic new extension comprising of a bedroom with ensuite, a massive kitchen/dining area, a fully equipped utility room and a bathroom. Must say the showers surprised me, they were both power showers and were fabulous. The cottage has oil fired central heating, and has a very efficient boiler which heated the water and radiators very quickly. The bedrooms are really comfortable, in fact, the bed in the older bedroom was so comfortable that I slept sound from the first night, something which I find quite difficult when trying to sleep somewhere other than my own home. The kitchen as I mentioned was a lovely size, we made breakfast each morning, and it comes fully equipped with everything that you would ever need. The parking area was great in that we were able to bring the car inside every night and close the gates which made us feel very secure, not that anything in Kilfenora would ever make you feel threatened, it's a lovely little village with a very interesting monastry which is well worth a visit. Thankyou Mary and your lovely family for letting us share in this little jewel nestling in this fascinating part of Ireland, we would recommend it to anyone wanting a clean, comfortable home from home.

“Relaxing Weekend Away”

This fabulous cottage situated in the heart of the burren offers everything you need for a break away. The flow of the old style with the new build is fantastic as well as been clean its comfortable, spacious and inviting. The cottage was very well equipped with all mod cons (Tv, Dryer, etc) necessary for our stay. Electric was metered and topped up before we arrived. Bedding and towels were provided and all were spotless which I was most pleased about. Essentials such as Tea, Coffee, etc were also provided even a packet of biscuits which I can honestly say was very thoughtful of the owner and well welcomed after our journey down. Off road parking was also available at front of cottage. The village of Kilfenora was within walking distance, where there was shops and pub should we required anything. Sights such as the Cliff of Moher, Alliwee Caves and tour of the Burren among others were within driving distance and information on all these sights and more were provided at the cottage. This cottage is an ideal place to stay. To Mary and Family, I would like to express my sincere thanks for your hospitality on our stay and would hope to see you again in the near future.

Mary and it's familly have renewed this old typical house with a lot of taste.
All bed linen are furnished and this is good quality bedding.
You dispose a washing machine and a dryer which is very useful in Ireland because of the wet weather.
The house is not equiped with Internet but 100m from the house you can find the Linnane's pub, which offer free wifi with a good data bandwidth.
The house is equiped with a large flat TV cabled for local DTV and satelite TV.
The house is well situated: 20 min. for Moher Cliffs, 15 min. for Burren, closest supermarket at 10min in Ennistimon. There are also some facilities in Kilfenora (post office, proximity shop, restaurant, pubs with live irish music, tourism information center...)

“A fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

people found this review helpful

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.
Highly recommend Fair Green Cottage, Kilfenora and Vaughan's.

“Best Family Holiday”
Reviewed 9 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Fabulous house. Traditional irish with all mod cons you need. Honest with light and heat bills (metered). Warm welcome, they even got in milk, bread, bikkies and pasta so we could have a drink and some food once we arrived.

The house is clean and spacious. All towels and linens were supplied, as well as cleaners and detergents.

Personal service, was told to call if we needed anything which was great. Loats of tourist info in the house so you can plan your days, also money off attraction offers and coupons with the info so we got half price for all the family for the caves/birds of prey show and cliffs of Mohar cruise.

The children loved the house, its close to all necessary amenities and short driving distance to all tourist attractions. I highly recommend The Rock Shop for gifts from Clare and for the high amount of fossels for sale - including real dinosaur teeth, dinosaur egg shells, and full fossels of jurassic lizards! I had to convince my partner to stop there and it ended up one of our favourite places. I also recommend the cliffs of Mohar cruise - however make sure you bring warm clothes as it can be wet and rough!!

In short it was the best family holiday we ever had. There isnt much free attractions however everything is competitively priced and we saved about €250 by booking online before our holiday started, or by phoning and booking from the holiday home so planning is essential.
