Our stay at Gorse Cottage exceeded our highest expectations. We have stayed in over a dozen places in Ireland and this was our favorite. The picturesque views span as far as the eye can see. The location is ideal for exploring Doolin, the Cliffs, Aran islands, and the Burren. The house is spacious and clean while still feeling warm and welcoming. Ted lives at the top of the hill and was a wonderful resource for local music, hikes and activities. We hope to stay again!
We had the delightful privilege of spending a week at Gorse Cottage in early March. The location is ideal with beautiful scenery out each window; the Burren, Atlantic Ocean and Cliffs of Moher can be seen from the front door. We enjoyed the birds out our kitchen French doors as they sang to us each morning. The cottage is suitably stocked with everything you could need for a home away from home. We were thrilled to find a Scrabble board and play after dinner as we do many nights here in the states. The village of Doolin also has amazing pubs and store keepers willing to advise and assist you to make your vacation a dream! You can’t help but have a fabulous vacation with Cindy and Ted looking out for you! Many thanks to them for making our stay so memorable!
We had a great time at Gorse cottage, Ted made us very welcome and the cottage was great, fully equipped with everything, would definitely recommend and would definitely come back, the views are amazing and the locals are very friendly. Was made welcome at the local pubs, kids also very welcome.
This house easily accommodated our party of 5, with stunning views and a very comfortable kitchen and living space. It's very close to Doolin, which has good food and pub options, including live music which we really enjoyed. The countryside is beautiful and the house is situated up on a hill so you get amazing vistas while sipping a cup of tea or eating a meal.
The house is clean and spacious, with plenty of beds, books for a cozy night in, and lots of space in the kitchen for a family meal. We were there in the winter, so the weather was wild, but the house was sturdy even though it sounded like the wind was trying to blow us away! We made good use of the feather comforters, for sure.
Our GPS didn't recognize the given coordinates, so we ended up lost coming from Northern Ireland, but the owner's father Ted was waiting when we arrived very late to help us in. He was very cheerful and helpful and lives just a house away so if there's any worry he's there to assist.
During our ten day stay with our adult children, we all agreed the house was the perfect choice. We loved the wind whistling around us at night while we were cozy inside. The views from each window were magnificent. Every day as we stepped outside we marveled at the vistas.The house is truly equipped with everything one might need. Beds are comfy and the house is immaculate
The location was perfect for traveling to the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, Galway, the Burren, and all the small villages along the way. The pubs were friendly, and the music every night was delightful.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to help us make memories. We all loved it.
