We stayed here from 22-25 August, and we loved every minute of our stay there. The site owners Danny & Geraldine were very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with.There was zero hassle checking in and out, and the electricity charges were minimal. The houses were immaculate and well maintained, and we were even upgraded to the 4* which was an added bonus. The facilities on site were ideal for the kids aged 12,8 and 5 which comprised of an onsite pool, games room, playroom, tennis courts and sandpit which kept them entertained. I would highly recommend this resort and we will definitely be returning in the near future.

We stayed here from 23rd august for 3 nights. The cottages were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location is fantastic with splendid views over the Atlantic ocean. The children loved the free access to the indoor heated pool and games room. The owner of the site was very helpful and very friendly even giving us a lift to the shop when our car broke down. We needed to stay an extra night and there was no problem with this. We will definitely be returning here next year. Thank you Danny.

We stayed here with our two boys aged 2 and 6 for five nights. I would definitely recommend westpark as its a fantastic base for a family holiday. The house itself is a little oldfashioned but has everything in it that you might need. The swimming pool is an asset to the site and we used it nearly everyday..most of the time we were the only ones in it!! The electricity was very cheap so we didnt mind paying it on top of the house price.
Overall I think its ideally placed for visiting anything in the surrounding area and the owners danny and Geraldine were very helpful...we will be back. Thanks Aisling and Damien Campbell

Just returned from 2 weeks in Quilty cottages where our two families rented two of the cottages side by side. The cottages are exactly what I expected from looking at the website - 4 star in a 1980's way with dated furnishings but do not let that put you off. They were clean, well equipped, comfortable with stunning views. The beds were exceptionally comfortable ~(even the insomniac slept well) and the houses very spacious with plenty of extra space - more like a house really than a cottage. As for the infamous "immersion" rather than an electric shower - I never needed it. There seemed to be enough water constantly.

The complex as such is extremely well kept, and well appointed with plenty of room for children to run safely around without supervision (the younger are aged 6 and 4). Although you do have to drive one mile to a beach, the onsite pool and sauna, sandpit, donkey and games room more than make up for that inconvenience and on rainy days you don't have to move an inch to keep the kids occupied. Also great place for the kids to cycle around and the 6 year old said goodbye to her stabilisers on holidays as Danny had promised. A big plus for any family is the industrial sized dryer located at the pool (free of charge) - a winner for those wet towels and clothes on rainy days.

The older kids (11 and 13) were enrolled in a Surf School at the nearby Spanish Point beach every day from 11 - 1 which wore them out and kept them entertained (only €70). There are also swimming lessons running every weekday in the pool should you need them. The location is great for exploring the Burren, Lisdoonvarna, the Cliffs or further south to Kilrush and Kilkee. On the one really wet day we had, we drove the 45 minutes to Ennis and went to the cinema. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in nearby Miltown Malbay and the Armada hotel (one mile away) has a great little pub. Most have music during the week.

We also ate a special meal out in Barr Tra - a lovely fish restaurant in a little cottage half way between Quilty and Lahinch. Oh, I forgot about Lahinch. Great lively town with everything (including a circus), seaworld, beaches, shops, restaurants and pool located about a 20 minute drive away.

As for the owners - Danny and Geraldine, couldn't be more helpful and while this is a holiday village, the fact that it is family run makes it all the more welcoming. Great Irish holiday. Danny had told me in advance that it was the type of place "where parents go out to look for the children at bed time as they have all congregated in the games room or the playground" and he couldn't have put it better. Your kids will love it! We will be back.

Spend a week (Aug 10 17), had a very enjoyable time, owners are very friendly & helpful, very central for touring (beaches are less than 5 minutes drive), the kids loved the place, the games room the tennis courts and the swings, the swimming pool is fabulous and there are great places to eat nearby.

We Spent a week with our 3 sons in quilty cottage from the 3rd - 10th Aug .We found them excellent in every way ( reasonable price for Electricity for week!!!) . It was a totally safe environment for the children to play football, tennis and use the games room , of course not forgetting the clean swimming pool which they used on a daily basis. Danny and his family are very friendly and welcoming and work hard to keep their lovely holiday homes so well. It is close to the beach and some of the lovely sites of Clare are not too far away either eg Cliffs of Moher . The houses where well equiped with all you need in the kitchen , the rooms where nice and spacious and of course not forgetting the lovely sea views. I would have no problem in reccomending these holiday homes to anyone

My mom and I stayed there for a week. 495 Euro the price was. The house is very old fashioned, the shower was very poor, you had to use an immersion as it wasn't an electric shower. The grill in the cooker didn't work, the oven wasn't great. Kept losing tv signal, had to call the owner and he said there was a loose wire connecting, but didn't do anything to fix it. No radio, no dvd player. No privacy in the gardens, my friend stayed one night, she was lying out in her bikini and a man next door to us could see in and kept staring at my friend. So couldn't lie out in the garden. The location was really out of the way, nothing was walking distance, you had to drive at least 5 mins to nearest shop or pub. Plus there is a heating and an electricity on top 495 euro. Very disappointed, wouldn't be going back there again.
