“Lovely country cottages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012 via mobile

You definitely need a car here. The cottages are right out in the lovely green fields of East Clare. Very comfortable, good size and well-equipped although no wifi. We had a 2bedroom cottage with 2bathrooms and a large living room with stone fireplace. There are no other facilities onsite but that is part of the charm. A good base for exploring the west of Ireland. We had lots of days out, Limerick, Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, all within east reach. Even Connemara is reachable within a day trip. One of the local music pubs will send a minibus to take you for a good night out!

Stayed August 2012, travelled with friends

I just stayed a week at Dangan Lodge Cottages with my family. The cottage was decorated very nicely and felt very homey. We chose to go the week after christmas and the weather was very snowy and icy. The roads around the area can be quite treacherous when the ice forms. That said we took several day trips and even an overnight trip north to Belfast using the lodge as our home base.
We had a two-bedroom unit with a generous-sized pull-out couch in the living room. The bedding and pillows were nice and comfy which was great as it was cold.
There was coal available and you could have a fire in the small stove in the unit which warmed things up considerably.
When we went over the the sister property to pay our electricy fees I did feel If I came again I would prefer to stay in one of the units on the main property as they all had wireless internet and the reception desk had a lending library, videos and a small store. Maybe it was the bad weather- cottages are remote and don't have "hotel-type" amenities. It was blissfully quiet and you can park right outside your front door.

In Summer 2007, my two siblings and I took our mom to Ireland for her eightieth birthday. We stayed at Dangan Lodge Cottages (in County Clare) for one week, after spending time in Dublin. We booked through RCI, and were absolutely thrilled by the charm of Dangan Lodge Cottages. We were very comfortable during our stay and the manager/staff were very helpful.

The location is good for day excursions in southern and western Ireland. We visited Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Dingle Peninsula, Cork on separate days, coming back to Dangan each night to sleep. The Dingle trip was a long day, but was doable. To stay at Dangan, it is essential to have access to a car, because it is located in the middle of the countryside.

Ennis is a small city with local charm, restaurants/pubs, internet cafes, and is only ~8-10 miles away. We grocery shopped in the nearby town of Tulla (~2 miles), and enjoyed breakfasts in our cottage, and also some of our lunches/dinners on bread, cheese, deli meats, and of course, the Guinness beer! We enjoyed local sightseeing in Ennis, as well as Knappogue and Craggaunowen castles, both of which were only ~5-10 minutes away.

Our cottage had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large living area with kitchen (with washing machine and dryer). The washer/dryer helped a lot with minimizing our luggage (we only brought enough clothes to fit in a carry-on bag for each of us), but do not operate as efficiently as ours in the USA. The capacity is smallfor both the washer and the dryer, and the time to cycle through is long! So, if you are traveling light, you have to plan accordingly and start washing small loads of laundry throughout your week-long stay at Dangan.

We loved our stay at Dangan Lodge Cottages. It was a perfect place for our family while we enjoyed the country of Ireland.

My sister, best friend and I took a trip to Ireland over St. Patrick's Day 2008. We booked accomodation through RCI with Dangan Lodge Cottages in East County Clare. The cottage was fantastic. It was in the countryside and the scenery was extremely beautiful even though we weren't there in "high season".

From the time we booked the owner/manager Gina Sivyer was very helpful. She allowed us to vary from the RCI policy and let us rent from Friday to Friday vs. the standard Saturday to Saturday term. Gina met us at the cottages upon our arrival and gave us everything we'd need immediately (as we were nothing short of exhausted after a transatlantic flight, etc.). She left us with detailed driving directions to get from the cottage to neighboring villages with pubs, stores, and supplies.

We had a two bedroom cottage with two baths and a large kitchen, dining room and beautiful stone fireplace. Plenty of room for three adult women. Everything in the cottage met our American expectations for comfort--plenty of hot water, heat, modern appliances and parking. The only complaint we had was that there was no phone in the cottage itself. There is a payphone in a booth on the property but there were a few days that the phone was out of order and it got cold trying to call family back home. Also, I would say that you shouldn't even try staying at this cottage unless you've rented a vehicle for the duration of your stay. It is remote (part of it's charm) and is not a walkable distance from things you would need.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Dangan Lodge Cottages. A big thanks to Gina and her staff. It was a perfect base for us to make daytrips to the West Coast of Ireland!
