The restrained décor continues through the bedroom, where a solid oak headboard extends the natural theme of the interior doors and woodwork. But at the end of the day, it is the omnipresent vistas that are the consistent focus.

Outside

A short but private Fuchsia lined driveway leads to the house, but the real magic happens at the other side where just beyond the lawn, fern feathered cliffs tumble to the pebble beach and clear waters beyond.

A long stretch of lawn separates the gate lodge the main residence, and behind, there is a narrow twisting road up the hillside which reveals ever more of the Aran Islands and the local townland as you climb.

Burren Aran Islands 450x300

Out & About

 

The Burren in County Clare is a magnet for walkers, surfers, musicians and foodies. You are sure to find your favourite.

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

The Gatehouse is just above the scattered village of Fanore on the twisting shoreline road between the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. It has a nice pub, and it’s long narrow sandy beach is a popular with surfers.

Fanore Beach 458x300

The cottage is 10 minutes from the vibrant coastal town of Doolin, widely regarded as the home of traditional Irish music, where there are nightly pub sessions throughout the year – sometimes four in the summer months.
County Clare is particularly home to the concertina.

Doolin is also the extremely busy jump off point for ferries to the Aran Islands – there are three of them at the mouth of Galway Bay. The passage takes an hour and a half to the most distant one.

The legendary semi-circular, cliff edge stone fort of Dun Aengus on Inis Mor is thought to date from around 1,100 BC and is a truly unique spectacle. Bikes can be easily hired on the islands.

The rugged Cliffs of Moher, confronting the Atlantic’s salty onslaught for aeons, are probably Ireland’s most celebrated natural attraction, and not to be missed. At just over 200 metres high, the views are breath-taking.

Beneath the Cliffs, enormous waves born of distant Atlantic storms race towards the coast. Big wave surfers travel by jet-ski from Doolin to catch the wave known as Aileens at the bottom of the Cliffs, which can be over 35ft high.

For the serious sea cliff rock climbers, Ailladie on the coast just north of Doolin is popular.

The strange karst landscape of the Burren area in northern Clare, consisting of limestone slabs divided by crevices (or grikes) is famous for its remarkable collection of animals and plants, including orchids and the European Pine Marten.

This is Ireland’s most important cave area, where only one river manages to reach the sea without being swallowed into a sink hole. More than 35 miles of cave passages have been surveyed and some can be explored for nearly seven miles.

JRR Tolkien was enlisted in 1949 as an external examiner for The University of Galway, regularly staying over at Ballyvaughan. Some say that it was this Burren landscape that was the inspiration for The Lord of the Rings writings.

Excavated in 1986, Poulnabrone Dolmen is probably the most photographed of some seventy Neolithic tombs across the Burren region. The bones of 18 adults together with 6 children were found, dating back to about 3,600 BC.

There are frequent festivals to watch for across the county, including such gems as The Father Ted Festival in April/May. If you are familiar with the TV series, it was mostly filmed in North Clare.

How to get there – Car advised..

By Air: Flights to Dublin or Shannon airports.
Dublin Airport – about three and a half hours from the cottage
Shannon Airport – is just over an hour away.

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is about three and a half hours from the cottage
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is approx 4 and half hours from house.
