The stay at East Clare turned out to be a very pleasant one. I was, at the onset, very skeptical, about the concept of 'Golf Village' - did not know what to expect really. However, it is a complex of charming residences, in County Clare. We stayed in a 2-bedroomed 'villa', which comprised of two floors. Ground floor kitchen and very specious living (both with full amenities) + bathroom, with both bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs. The accomodations seem new...perfectly clean.
Yes, the place is really 'away from it all', but at the same time, many Irish highlights were within 90mins driving.
Some reports have commented on the lack of wifi but this seems to have been solved as we had excellent fast wifi.
While it is understandable that in low-season operating a restaurant may not make sense, perhaps it is a bit 'tough' not having the restaurant operating in the evening. Took the opportunity of the shuttle bus to the nearby Feakle Pub and Restaurant, lovely atmosphere with Irish music, though food not necessarily the best in Ireland. But ok for an evenign out.
The recepetionists were also very helpful in providing directions, assistance in paying the electronic motorway toll, making suggestions and so forth.
