Enjoy the fabulous view of Dunguaire Castle from this thatch cottage residence. Only a five minute stroll along the sea front to the fishing village of Kinvara which boasts fine restaurants and lively pubs. Kinvara is en route to the Cliffs of Moher.

The space

Welcome folks!
I have to say we love living here. We have sea and castle views from most windows and a garden out front with enough space for my herb and veg patch. Together with my garden and hens I offer something a little different with a true country living experience, yet only minutes from town. Inside is spacious and that includes the bedrooms also, the stove keeps the house warm on chilly nights.

Guest access

Apart from a private double room, equipped with wash hand basin and tea making facilities, guests have access to kitchen facilities for breakfast ONLY. Although I do not supply breakfast, guests are welcome to use the kitchen to cater for all their culinary needs, alternatively there are friendly cafes just a 5 minute sea stroll away . There is also wireless internet connection. The bathroom is shared and has an electric shower with good water pressure. This is an old house with bundles of character, the interior is quaint and rustic.

Interaction with guests

I love meeting new people and chatting to visitors and can supply some good tips for local interesting sites eg: holy wells, Burren walks, beach strolls. I have a keen interest in Burren flora and know many mountain walks off the beaten track.

Other things to note

You will have the delight of meeting my extremely friendly and cuddly dog Nanook and her trusty side-kick Max, the most gorgeous German Shepard. We now have a new addition, a kitten!

Thanks for a wonderful stay in your beautiful thatch cottage-- all promised and more. Sorry we had to sneak out so early, but we easily made it back to Dublin airport for our flight as the roads are great. The location is perfect for hiking in the Burren Geopark-- what a landscape!, driving the coast road and visiting the cliffs and island. The spectacular view across the bay and of the castle was just an added bonus.

All I can say is wow! Emma and Peter are beyond friendly and helpful, they had great advice on what to see in the area and made us feel super welcome in their amazing home. Their dogs were super well behaved and lots of fun! The room was very spacious and comfortable. Another huge plus was the private sink and kettle in the room. This was such a great place to stay in a beautiful locations, we couldn't suggest it more highly!

Staying with Emma was a dream- this thatch room cottage is big, out of the city, with very friendly and helpful hosts, and at a great bargain. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

The thatched Cottage is a unique experience, with castle views and an easy walk into town. We enjoyed strolling along the streets and popping into Greene's for a traditional music jam session. We didn't really get to know Emma until the next morning during breakfast and she was very sweet showing us her gardens. The room was quite big, but the bed was a bit springy. It was really nice to have a little tea service in the room.
