My husband and I stayed here on our last night on a 12 day trip to Ireland and Scotland. What an absolutely beautiful property and welcoming family! We wish we knew how truly great it was ahead of time because we would have planned to stay here longer, and we can't wait to go back. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone traveling in County Clare or near the Shannon Airport.
Evelyn, the young woman who works there, greeted us with tea and warm scones and showed us to our room and around the house. The whole house smelled of fresh flowers and fresh baked goods and there was a beautiful arrangement of huge lily's in the foyer. Our room was very nice with a large comfortable bed and clean bedding and fresh water on the dresser. The bathroom was the cleanest we had during our entire trip to Europe. There were multiple indoor and outdoor sitting areas and everything was lovingly cared for, clean and fresh with lots of space. There is a cute outdoor gazebo with little lights and it looks back on the great vegetable garden.
Even though the house was so nice and clean and fresh-smelling, the best part of the stay was the gorgeous farm complete with the greenest pastures and lots of livestock - cows, sheep, horses, dog! It was so relaxing and serene on the farm. Michael and his son took us on a horseback tour of the farm the morning after we arrived, and told us all about the property and the livestock. Noreen had a delicious Irish breakfast with more tea and scones and brown bread waiting for us when we returned. Noreen and Michael were really delightful hosts, so friendly and welcoming. There was another family there at the same time with two small children who obviously loved Evelyn - their little girl ran up and gave Evelyn a huge hug as soon as she walked in the door! Their family had been there for 2 or 3 days and were also very sad to leave the property, and remarked on how much their children liked Noreen's tasty pancakes.
I can't say enough good things about Cahergal Farmhouse. I really loved it here and want to send special thanks to Michael and Noreen and their son. I hope I will be returning to stay with them soon!
One last benefit, it is only 10 minutes from the Shannon airport! But still was very much in the country.
