Gentian Cottage provided a wonderful place for our adventures in Ireland. So close to the town of Doolin, with its wonderful, traditional music every night; the Aran Islands and all their wild splendor; the Burren; the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher (tip - take the coastal walkway, less touristy and so beautiful). The house itself had every amenity we could imagine, including incredible sunsets over the ocean. Ann O, our friendly and most gracious host, could not have been easier to deal with and was so helpful in so many ways.
This was our favorite stay in Ireland It was close to Cliffs Of Moher, awesome local Irish pubs and traditional Irish music, near castles, caves, the water. Best hike from pub to cliffs of moher- great views and countryside! Highly recommend to stay here & experience all of Doolin in excess of Cliffs Of Moher!!!!
This cottage and the views are fantastic. You can sit for hours looking out at The Atlantic, The Aran Islands and Galway Bay.
Ann was so helpful and friendly. She made our stay a wonderful experiance.
The area where the cottage is located is a low traffic area so it is great for walkers.
This was our fifth trip to Doolin. This Is were you want to be if you like Traditional Irish Music, traveling to The Aran Islands and walking along The Cliffs of Moher.
The People of Doolin are warm, friendly and it is so easy to carry on a conversation with them.
This was a fantastic rental. It was beautiful, spacious, clean, and it had amazing ocean views from every room. Location is fantastic with so much to explore right out the front door. Doolin, with its excellent pubs and live trad music, is a very short drive away. Doolin pier has regular ferry rides to the Aran islands. Best thing about our stay was the incredible hospitality of our hosts. Ann is wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to make sure our toddler had everything she needed.
We spent 10 days of our trip in Ireland at the Gentian Cottage, a charmingly beautiful place with breathtaking views of the Sea and Aran Islands! Ann, Collin & family were wonderful hosts and very accommodating! Ann gave us a private tour of the nearby Ballinalacken Castle. The location is great and nearby to tour the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and the Aran Islands. We will miss our “Irish Home” and plan to return in the future. We highly recommend the Gentian Cottage, it is a very special place to stay!

The house is great. It is spacious and very comfortable for two families with children. Each of the bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. What makes it particularly special are the panoramic views over the Atlantic and the Aran islands. The location is very peaceful as it is a long way from the main road. As the electricity and oil are paid on top of the rental price, you have to be a bit careful with how much you heat the house and water in order to keep the bill down.
Amazing hosts for an amazing home. Attention to detail is superb and it was a perfect home base for us to explore county clare. Doolin is a wonderful community with great little shops and lively pubs - music every night! There's a number for Dennis the cab driver in the phone Ann leaves at the house - Dennis is wonderful and aided in our desire to get our drink on while in town. Ann & Colon are extraordinary hosts and have created a place of relaxation for their guests. The view is breathtaking as are the locals - we felt so welcome and at home. Enjoy!!!
