Kate's Country Cottage was the perfect stay for our family! The cottage is lovely and cozy, being perfectly furnished with every convenience you would need. We loved it's historic charm and enjoyed a fire on the wood burning stove. Easy location to visit the Cliffs of Moher or to catch a ferry to the Aran Islands. Martin and Breda welcomed us with friendly, Irish hospitality, and made our stay very comfortable. We are so glad we chose this cottage for our trip to county Clare!

“A REALLY WONDERFUL, WELCOMING, COMFORTABLE COTTAGE!”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for a week in July. We had a great stay in every way from the scones which Breda had ready for us on arrival to the personal farewell from herself and her husband Martin when we were leaving. Breda and Martin could teach a few of our so-called hospitality professionals a lesson in how to look after guests.
The cottage itself is a real joy to stay in. I spent most of my time in the kitchen sitting by the range or at the table. It is the most homely holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in.
There is a comfortable lounge in the next room and TVs in both rooms but do yourself a favour and dont turn them on!!!!!!! There are lots of other things to do in Clare. Beds were comfy if a little firm for my wifes liking.
The garden at the back has a lovely wee seating area from where you can watch the sun go down and see the sea.
The cottage is perfectly located, close to everything you would want to see in this part of Clare.
I really cannot recommend this cottage highly enough and cannot wait to return.

It's our third time staying here, which should tell you a lot. A great location for touring around or jsust chilling out locally. Within easy reach of many of the local attractions but seemingly off the beaten track to avoid crowds and traffic if you don't want to travel. Its a lovely cottage with plenty of room, wifi if you want to keep in touch and the owners are two of the most helpful people we have met. Highly recommended.

We spent a week at Kate's Country Cottage whilst touring northern Ireland & the Republic. The cottage was cosy and well equipped and the location was excellent for seeing all that this beautiful area has to offer. We also had fabulous weather. Breda was lovely and very helpful (thank you for the scones!) and everyone that we met in the area was so friendly.

“Best part of our trip!”

Kate’s Country Cottage was the best part of our trip. We traveled to Ireland with my parents and my children. This was the perfect choice for our family. Breda and her husband have done a beautiful job restoring this lovely cottage. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome—Breda provided a beautiful care package with milk, butter, bread and muffins for our arrival. Her husband met us in Liscanoor to get us safely to the cottage after our long trip from Florida! The cottage is centrally located near the Cliffs of Moher (amazing!), Doolin Village with the traditional Irish music (fantastic!), Lahinch with the amazing waves, quaint shops, and restaurants (fun!). From this cottage we easily traveled to Kilfenorra to view the ancient crosses around St Fachnan’s Cathedral and dance the night away at Vaughan’s Pub. We made day trips to both Bunratty and to view the Burren and the Poulnabrone dolmen. It was a blessing to be able to travel each day to see the sites and return to the warmth and comfort of Kate's Country Cottage.

Beautifully renovated and super tidy cottage conveniently located for day trips to the nearby sights in County Clare. Breda supplied the cottage with suggestions for sightseeing, hikes/walks, shopping, local restaurants, et cetera. We were traveling with my elderly parents who LOVED this vacation rental the best of all the places we stayed while in Ireland. I especially enjoyed early morning in the stone courtyard with a cup of coffee, watching the sun rise and listening to the cows in the pasture across the road. Welcome break for a city girl! Thanks Breda for your hospitality!

We had a wonderful welcome from Breda, including a very generous and thoughtful welcome pack of provisions. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard, and had all the facilities we needed and so felt like a home from home.
This was a great base to see the sights of County Clare including a trip to the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Mohar, Doolin Cave and the Burren. Very central location and easy access to so many sights.
Highly recommended - we had a very enjoyable stay in this very comfy and well equipped cottage.
