This is a lovely, cosy apartment attached to the original cottage in a setting that's just ideal for an escape from the city. The apartment was really warm, the wood burning stove was great to come home to after a winter walk. The location is great too - only a few miles from Ennis so it doesn't feel too isolated. Jason and Noelle are great hosts and we arrived to find some home-made wheaten bread, fresh eggs and jam - great after a long drive. This is an ideal location to explore Co Clare - the roads take a bit of getting used to for a city dweller (just as well I wasn't driving!) but all the more reason to take it steady and enjoy the journey
The cottage is set in a very tranquil, nice environment. It is well appointed and has what you need. It is a little ways out from Ennis, but it did come up on our GPS and we drive right to it. Jason and Noelle were both very nice and had fresh baked shoes waiting for us, which was a nice touch.
A warm cottage well-equipped owned by warm hosts. From the first minute you feel comfortable and welcomed. Between coast and Lough Derg and the lovely town of Ennis, there's always something to do or visit.
Jason and Noelle are wonderful hosts who are full of ideas of what to do in Co. Clare, whether you want to play the role of a tourist or step into the shoes of a local (or both!). Rent the smallest car you can, and scrupulously follow their directions to the cottage in order to have any hope of finding it on the first try. But what a find it is, and well worth the effort of navigating those impossible Irish roads. A perfect little getaway - and if you're lucky enough to be there on a Friday, go to the farmer's market in Ennis, where Jason and Noelle sell their freshly grown and picked veggies, and then head to Naughton's Bar later that night for some amazing Irish music. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant vacation.

We (2 adults and a 9 month old) stayed in the apartment for one week. Despite the small size the apartment is well laid out and maximises the space available. Jason and Noelle were fantastic hosts, calling by over the course of the week to check that all was well and were able to give great advice about things to do and places to see in the area. The peace and tranquillity you experience staying here cannot be understated. Our baby had no real prior interaction with animals and a highlight for us was his delight at the hens and Gus, the gentle giant of a dog. All in all a holiday we will never forget.
