“Beautiful home in stunning landscape”

Some places are really hard to leave. We ended up staying in Ciara and John’s house longer than we had planned, for lots of reasons. The location is really special. It’s folded into the Burren landscape in a dip in the Aillwee mountain. From the kitchen table I could watch the light shifting over the limestone rocks and I never, ever got bored of the view. While the setting is drop dead gorgeous, there’s more to it than that though. It’s partly a feeling. It’s peaceful. The hazel wood a few steps from the house has more than a hint of magic about it. And rolling down the drive-way, with Ox eye daisies nodding at every turn, the shoulders seem to drop a couple of inches. The house itself is fantastic. It’s a clever house, with an eye to beauty. It was designed to be loved and lived in. It’s airy and light-filled and everything works exactly as it was imagined. The rainwater system was my particular favorite - drinking water without the nasty chemicals and bathing water that nurtures the skin. It’s also extremely well equipped. Towels are soft and linens sun-bleached white. We’re picky about our kitchen paraphernalia and brought a lot of our own stuff only to discover that absolutely everything we needed was already there. Finally, the clincher for us was a walking green road to the town. As we have a baby who likes to be on the move when napping, it was a life-saver. Overall though, I think the main reason that we found it hard to leave was that it felt like coming home.

“Wonderful house in the countryside”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in January 2013

My husband and I stayed in this house in 2013. We had a wonderful stay. The house itself is very stylish, the furnishings are beautiful and the kitchen was a dream. It had everything we needed. The setting was absolutely gorgeous. Very private and peaceful with meadow, woods and gardens all around. Not a neighbour to be seen, except for some grazing sheep. The hot tub and sauna in the woods are a real treat! It was a short walk along a beautiful green road to the village of Ballyvaughan...a perfect little village with shops, pubs and restaurants. We will certainly return to this house if it is available next time we visit Ireland. We can't recommend it highly enough.
