“An oasis of calm in the heart of the Burren with nearby blue flag Beach”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 for a stay in August 2011

This is a beautiful cottage nestled in the heart of the Burren with mountains out the back and view across Galway bay to front. Plenty of space to run around makes it great location for kids. The nearby Fanore beach is very clean and has lifeguard on duty throughout the summer. The Aran Islands can be accessed from nearby Doolin. Inisheer only 30mins. Eating out in Doolin (OConnors and Fitzpatricks Hotel) and Ballyvaughan (Logues) recommended.

Suitable for families and those wanted to relax and unwind, catch up on their reading or explore the flora and fauna of the amazing Burren. Surf school is available on nearby beach. Public transport is limited so car required.

“Fantastic scenery, great walks, accessible country side.”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We had a wonderful week in Fanore, walking, cycling, touring and immersing ourselves in the Burren. On fine days it was down to the beach, in addition there were great walks back up behind the cottage. The Burren countryside is magnificant, beside the sea with great panoramic views of the Aran Island and Galway Bay. The kids loved walking through the fields just looking at the horses and cows and taking in the fantastic views. All in all a wonderful sensous experience

“Relaxation, silence, beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 for a stay in October 2011

We stayed for two weeks in the cottage at Fanore. Two magnificent weeks. Very good reception of the owner. The house is large, clean and well equipped. Ability to heat with peat. Electric heating is also installed.
A car is needed. Fanore is relatively distant from the next villages / shops. By good weather you can eat outside on the terrace. I can unhesitatingly recommend this cottage.

“Soon to be an annual event :-)”

We had such a great holiday here, everything from the house, Fanore beach, the Allwee Caves, The Father Ted house and the cliffs to name but a glimpse of our holiday. Every evening heading home to out cottage in the Burran was pure bliss. It's definitely somewhere that we will go back to.

Liked best: For my daughter the total surprise was that the house overlooked the caravan park from Father Ted. For me it was the calves field right by the house.
Liked least: That we won't get back there sooner.
