“Clareview House”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2007

Clareview House is located on a farm a few miles outside of Kinvara. Brenda is a very sweet woman who is extremely friendly and helpful; we enjoyed chatting with her very much. However, our accomodations were somewhat disappointing. While our room was clean and the bedding adequate, the decor was quite out of date and the bathroom in need of some remodeling. Our room contained strictly the bare essentials--no hand soap, alarm clock, television or public phone. The home itself (especially the exterior) was quite lovely, with a neat little sitting room open to guests.

  • Liked — The beauty of the countryside
  • Disliked — Bathroom needed some work--i.e. poor lighting. No hand soap or alarm clock.
  • Stayed April 2007, traveled as a couple

Clareview House is a few miles outside of Kenvara, a lovely little village on the coast. It is not far from the Burrens or the Clifts of Mohr and reasonably close to Galway. Brenda, the hostess, is a lively lady who is friendly and interested in her guests comfort. She tends to 6 rooms that are large and adequately furnished. My bathroom was small and the shower would be impossible for a large person to manage but perhaps some of the other rooms have a larger shower. Breakfast was hearty and typical: cereal, eggs, meats, breads, tea and coffee.

The facility is well kept and friendly but location is a bit of a problem. Clareview House suited my needs well as I had day trips lined up prior to arrival, but anyone who had a loose schedule might not like the location as it requires a drive to go anywhere, including food after breakfast or any form of entertainment.

Three of us stayed at this B & B at the end of July. It's located outside of Kinvara, on a working farm. Brenda and Michael are consummate hosts. We arrived all frazzled after driving from Newgrange, and Brenda sat us down in the conservatory with tea and fresh baked scones, even though it was early evening. She offered us invaluable suggestions for how to see everything in the area--and there's a lot to see. We loved this B & B and you will too.
