Thank you for a great stay. We all loved Lahinch and West Ireland and hope to be back. The cottage was perfect for us.

I stayed here back in September for a week. The cottage is beautiful and the views are simply spectacular. Lahinch itself is a wonderful place with loads to do and see.

“Amazing”

person found this review helpful

We absolutely loved this property. It was different to anywhere we had ever rented before. It was so welcoming, sumptuous furnishings and the walls were covered in the most amazing artwork with a flavour that was very fitting for the area that the house is in. The location is stunning with easy access to a major surfing beach and spectacular Atlantic cliff walks. Our hostess was most welcoming, having warmed it up in advance and set the stove for us. There were also 12 fresh free range eggs left for us. We'll be back

“lovely cottage in ideal location”
Reviewed December 2, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is really lovely accommodation. Bar Tra is very private and the views are gorgeous. It is a perfect location for touring stunning Co. Clare. The cottage was warm, comfortable and very well equipped, it also had lots of character and was very welcoming. The processes of booking, arriving and departure were seemless and classy. Highly recommended.

“Complete Bull”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

Property looked ideal and was available for the period we needed according to Tripadvisor, so we enquired about booking.

Turned out the information on Tripadvisor was complete bull****. Even after the owner told us it was not available it was still showing available.

My advice would be do not waste your time with Tripadvisor when it comes to looking for rental properties.

We regret that the property was not available for your preferred dates. It is listed on more than one site and has lots of repeat bookings many of which come directly to Sheila on her cell phone (listed on holiday lettings site). The listing showing availability was an error and I regret any inconvenience to you.

“Such a beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

This cottage is beautiful, inside and out. The owners have put a lot of effort and money in to restoring it and making it one of the nicest self catering homes we have ever stayed in. Bedrooms are spacious with lots of storage, beds really comfy. The cottage is really homely with lots of lovely pictures, books to read and fantastic views of Liscannor bay. We hope to return some day. We stayed with young kids and found the place child friendly. The owner was very kind, dropped us some of her hens fresh eggs and some fuel for the stove on our first day.
