Booked this cottage as loved the remoteness of it and also the views you got from it. The cottage is much larger than it looks on the photos and has a very well equipped kitchen/dining room. The lounge has a great log burner and the owner has a fuel starter pack ready for you when you arrive. Towels and bedding are all provided along with a well stocked book library and lots of information leaflets about the area. The cottage is very clean, well thought out and in a fantastic location. There is a washing machine in the outside garage available for your use and even wash powder!

From day one of the booking Paul the owner was in full communication and when we arrived in Doolin and got lost, he guided us easily to his cottage and provided us with lots of useful information and showed us how to walk from the back garden down to the cliffs without hitting any of the roads.

It takes approximately 5 minutes to drive to the pubs from the cottage, all of which are excellent and have good food. Our favourite was McGanns. To walk from the cottage you will need to wear the hi-vis jackets left for you and take a torch as no street lights but a very pleasant walk during the day and takes only about 15 minutes each way. One thing to bare in mind is that although you can take dogs to this cottage, none of the pubs let them in and we have found this to be true in most of Ireland.

We had a great week of sightseeing from here, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park is a must for anyone. Only thing I found disappointing was the Cliffs of Mohr, paid 6 euros each to basically park the car in the carpark and upon leaving discovered we could have parked for free off a lay by further down.... dont waste your money.

This cottage is ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet and tranquility of the area.

Please be aware though that the driveway to this property is steep and bumpy and could be a challenge to anyone elderly or with a disability.... fine in a car.

Well done to Paul the owner on his new venture... Im sure it will be a great success.
