“A little slice of heaven in County Clare”

We spent just one night in this idyllic cottage, but we loved every second. From the moment we were greeted by the wonderful Margaret & PJ, we knew it would be a trip to remember.
The cottage, on approach, is like something out of a painting. It looked so beautiful in the afternoon sunshine. The only audible sounds as we stepped out of the car were song birds & the running water of the brook. I fell in love with the place right at that moment!
Inside, the house is overflowing with charm. There has been so much attention to detail & this is clear where ever you cast your gaze. The bedrooms are so cozy, the kitchen is equipped with everything you might need & the wood burning stove in the living room is the icing on the cake.
We definitely hope to return for a longer stay in the future. Many thanks again to PJ & Margaret for being such great hosts.

“'A treasure of a place from which to explore the Burren!'”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed at Brook Cottage a few years ago with my parents & we're back twice in the season this year! Such welcoming hosts in Margaret & PJ and you have everything you could need in a peaceful rural location & at the same time within minutes of the Burren Centre & shops in Kilfenora. Definitely recommend it!!

“Well-equipped, very clean cottage”

Brook Cottage is really well looked-after and has everything you need. It's in a good location near Kilfenora, which is great for the coast and the Burren. Margaret and PJ were very welcoming when we arrived and waved us off at the end! It's not the cosiest of cottages - tiled or laminate floors throughout - and the living room doesn't get the sun in the evening. Be aware that there's no wifi and mobile reception is limited - we got wifi in Vaughan's pub and mobile reception up the access track. The village shop doesn't sell beer! I suppose that means you have to go to the pub. There's a decent supermarket in Ennistimon.
These quibbles aside, Brook Cottage served us really well and was great value for money, too.

“Home away from home!”
Reviewed May 28, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Well maintained and well furnished traditional cottage, sitting in a small valley and just a short drive (or walk) to Kilfenora. We've stayed here every time we visit County Clare and we've never had a problem with anything. The cottage is spotless, bed linens and bath towels are clean and fresh, kitchen has everything you need, laundry room is fully equipped, and the heating system functions very well.

“Lovely house in a peaceful location”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay here. Margaret and PJ are great to deal with and their attention to detail is wonderful. We loved the scones and jam and the fire being set for us on arrival and appreciated all the "extras" e.g. laundry powder, sewing kit, box of games etc. The house was spotlessly clean.....in fact possible the cleanest I have ever stayed in. We found the location excellent for exploring the coast and inland. I would love to return there again.
