We stayed there for a week and it was like home for us. The cottage has everything you need. The hosts are really super friendly and help with any questions. The supermarket is only ten minutes away by car. It takes fifteen minutes to get to Lahinch beach where you can surf. There are many opportunities for things to do: visit a cave, explore the Burren, enjoy the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands. We have enjoyed our stay. If we travel to Ireland again, we will gladly return to Brook Cottage :)
stayed here twice in the last few months. owners margaret and pj are lovely people house is immaculate and comfortable. faultless and also great value.
Brook Cottage is stunning and ideally located. Margaret and PJ are perfect hosts and have a vast knowledge and history of the area...listening about the background of the house was fascinating. Our family were able to travel to the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher both within close proximity of the cottage. The cottage is beautiful and spotless and the grounds are charming, it is well equipped with everything for nice days/evenings in...especially the board games. We would be absolutely thrilled to stay again at Brook Cottage and highly recommend it to all. Thank you Margaret and PJ.
Myself and my husband and our three children stayed here for our trip to Co.Clare, the hosts Margaret and pj where very friendly and there communication was outstanding, the house itself was very well presented and contained everything we needed for our self catering break away, My favorite thing about the house was its uniqueness and location, lovely and private with a beautiful little stream running beside it, my children had a great time roaming around and exploring the grounds without any worries.
The location is perfect for exploring Co.Clare, we visited the alawee caves to include the birds of prey which is a must and really helps to conserve the wildlife, also the cliffs of moher which were breathtaking and well worth a visit
We really Enjoyed out stay here and id have no hesitation on returning and would like to thank Margaret and pj for having us.
We have just got back from a great visit to Ireland. Brook Cottage is in a brilliant location for visiting many areas of the Republic of Ireland, just 1 hour drive from Galway and Limerick and half hour drives to Loop Head, Cliffs of moher, etc. Kilfenora is also a great spot to stay in for exploring the Burren.
We really enjoyed our stay here and although we didn't spend too much time in the cottage, it was very complete and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The hosts Margaret & Peter are lovely, helpful and very friendly. Although we didn't require their help after check in we got the feeling they would be right there if we needed them.
At the cottage itself there is no Mobile signal as well as no internet connection. This is sometimes a nice change whilst on holiday to be able to fully relax. But it is good to know before hand in case you are reliant on good internet.
The only thing I would comment on in the house itself is that the radiators cannot be adjusted to different temperatures or turned off in some rooms. This again is not a huge problem as we just put the heating on on a timer for an hour or two in the morning and again in the evening before going to bed. But the bedrooms got very hot, where as some of the other rooms stayed cool. The living room has a lovely log burner, which unfortunately we didn't use as we weren't there to use it, but a nice little addition.
Margaret supplied us with some lovely cakes and tea, coffee and milk to start our first day at the cottage.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
We stayed in this cottage for one week and had a wonderful break. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and is immaculately clean. There is no wi-fi or mobile coverage which for us was super, we wanted peace, quiet and quality family time and Brook Cottage was the perfect place. It is a good base to see the area. PJ and Margaret made us feel very welcome and are wonderful hosts. We left some of our belongings behind and they went above and beyond to have them returned to us. It is a great cottage, run by great people and a great base to see the County, go!
Brooke's Cottage is a unique place.
Although it is very old, you can find everything and more you need.
It has a great wooden stove, nice chairs, a very spacious kitchen with all kinds of build in equipment.
Two good electric showers( remember to put the boiler on before dinner if you want a hot shower before you go to bed)
And two cosy bedrooms with really clean bedding and towels.
One of the owners, Margaret is brought up in Brook's Cottage with a lot of brothers and sisters.
And that' s exactely what you feel when you rest your tired feet after a long walk in the nearby Burren: this house has a lovely history.
The owners PJ and Margaret does all the cleaning themselves.
I can assure you it is very neat and clean!
At night it is quiet and if the sky is clear one can see heaps of stars.
We saw a lot of wild animals in the garden including a marter.
There is no mobile internet.
There is service in the nearby village Kilfenora,you can reach it in only two carminutes or ten minutes walk.
In Kilfenora you can get information in the Burren Centre about the Burren, the Puoulnabrone tombe and many more interesting things to see.
We walked along the kliffs in Kilkee, made a boattrip to Moher and walked trough the stones and shrubs of the area.
Be sure to bring your hiking boots and go and see the kilfenora Ceili band in one of the pubs.
We had a great week in Brook's Cottage!
