Experience authentic Irish living in this cosy, characterful 1930s house in the village of Kilfenora in County Clare, famous for traditional music and adjacent to the world famous Burren Region, with its spectacular landscape, and an abundance of flora and fauna. This charming and commodious house, with many original features, is suitable for people seeking peace and tranquillity in the Clare countryside and also for families with children, with much to see and do in the locality.
“The house was the perfect base for our recent family trip to the west of Ireland. We planned a weeks worth of day trips and found that everywhere we wanted to visit was just a pleasant drive away. The village had three wonderful pubs all within a minute’s walk and the locals were incredibly welcoming. Vaughan’s was our particular favourite! For ‘essentials’ the village shop was perfect however the two local supermarkets were just a ten minute drive away. Communication with a Fiona was perfect! All questions were answered very quickly and although we were never bothered during our stay, we knew that Fi’s mum was close at hand if we needed anything. The house was immaculate and had literally everything you could ever need for a very comfortable family holiday. I was so impressed with the level of quality of every single item in the house. I’m used to travelling a lot and it’s pretty standard to see a house full of Ikea furniture and cheaper appliances. Fiona’s house was very much the exception!! From the sound system to the art work to the very comfortable mattresses, everything felt like a proper family home! Not a single corner felt cut! We had a week of terrible weather so it was simply wonderful to return home each day to the comforts of the house. We’d cook most evenings, eat together around the huge family table and chill out with a drink in front of the log burner, occasionally calling for a ‘few’ Guinness in between! If you’re looking for a spacious, well designed home from home for your trip to Ireland I doubt you’ll find anywhere better! Thanks Fiona, we’ll certainly be returning x”
