Book this home

Ardgroom Co. Cork

 

A very special, private home set above the sheltered shores of Ardgroom harbour, Pipers Cottage is surrounded by its own 11 acres of pasture and woodland with its own shoreline and private beach.

But more than that, it’s glorious secluded location and stunning private views makes Pipers the perfect spot to simply unwind and enjoy and explore the extraordinary natural power and beauty that is here in Beara.

 

A Musical Rest..

The house is built within the grounds of the 19th century home of Canon Goodman, the ruins of which provide a magical backdrop to views over Ardgroom harbour towards the Kerry and Caha mountains.

Glorious mature stands of beech, oak and plane trees line the drive and stand proudly in the surrounding meadows. We will tell you later of the great and good Canon, but first to the home, Pipers.

To set the scene, here are just some of the views from the house, sunporch and garden: private, intimate, glorious, unchanged and special.

Pipers is a kilometre and a half from the village of Ardgroom with its excellent shop, cafe and pub (Village Inn).

The home provides modern and comfortable accommodation for up to four in two bedrooms, one a double and the other with twin beds.

The south-facing terrace overlooking the harbour is well sheltered and is an absolute sun trap. A glorious spot to spend the day with the cows grazing on the green hills beyond and wonderful and often rarely seen seabirds and wildlife hunting in the waters below (Gannets, Terns, Guillemots, Sandpipers, Great Northern Divers, Herons, Sea Otters and Hares to name but a few).

The terrace entrance leads into the open plan living area through a convenient and spacious porch.

The living area comfortably accommodates six around a Scandinavian wood burning stove that combines with central heating to ensure maximum snugness on those very occasional dampish days !

Leading from the dining area is a fully equipped modern kitchen. Bright, a delight to use and spacious with views out into the surrounding gardens.

The back door into the house leads from the kitchen providing easy and direct access for car loading and unloading. A well-equipped laundry is also provided next to the kitchen

Bedrooms

The stairs to the bedrooms lead from the living area to a landing above with the master bedroom to the right and the second bedroom to the left.

The master bedroom is spacious and cosey. Three windows offer lovely views across the harbour to the hills and mountains beyond.
The sky light above the bed ensures that the room is always well and softly lit. And on the odd blowy night allows you to really hear the wind. Just magic.

The second bedroom consists of two single beds.

The bright and airy bathroom at the top of the stairs provides a power shower with lashings of hot water. Compact, spotless, with all that you need.

 

Pipers was built in 1900 but has been sensitively modernised while remaining true to its proud Beara roots. The house is full of lovely touches which reach back and connect you to the years gone by.

Beara has many fine resident artists and potters. Their work is exhibited in Kenmare, Castletown and Bantry or better still, follow the booklet “Beara Art Trail” and you can visit them in their own studios. Well worth doing, as they are close by.

So now to Canon Goodman; who was truly well named.
Pipers is situated in the grounds of a former rectory that once was his home.

Born in Dingle in 1828 he spent a life-time devoted to the well-being of Ireland and all its people. A fluent Irish speaker from childhood his life was one of service, education and music. Indeed he became renowned for his playing of the Uileann pipes.

His unique collection of over 2000 traditional Irish melodies for the pipe in volumes known as ‘The tunes of the Munster Pipers’ are now housed in the library of Trinity College, Dublin.

It was while in Ardgroom that the Canon commenced this collection.
And so it is that Pipers Cottage came to be named in memory of a very remarkable and good man.
His funeral in January 1896 was of “enormous proportions” and bore testimony to his life of devotion to Ireland, its people and music. “His generosity to the poor left him without wealth at the end. Yet he died rich, for money could not buy the esteem and respect of his countrymen which were without limit or reserve.”

Reflect on this exemplary life, listen to the message in the Piper’s call as you sit by his once fine home and take in, as he surely often did himself, the unspoilt beauty and peace of Ardgroom harbour with Collorus and the Caha mountains beyond.
It has changed little in 200 years and remains an inspiration.

The fine old stone buildings around the Canon’s former home to-day form a beautiful sheltered quadrangle ideal for outside dining. A barbeque is of course provided.

 

Restrictions

Smoking – No, sorry!
Parties – The owners regret Stag, Hen, Wedding or 21st parties are not admissible.
Children – The property is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
Pets – No, sorry!

 

Pipers Cottage is a very special place. And it continues to reach out and touches all those who have had the good fortune to track it down and stay in this lovely place on this beautiful peninsula.

If you would be so good.

 Piper’s Cottage is new to Unique Irish Homes Summer 2021. If you visit and feel the need; let us know how it went…

The Cottage is deeply appreciated by past guests…

 

“The place is very special. The cottage the best bolthole ever. We could not have asked for more. And the views…………!!!” 

(Sept 2017, Neil and Alan, Lancashire UK.)

What a beautiful cottage Pipers is. On the website it looked great already, but in real life the views, the atmosphere and the house itself are even better.”

(May 2015, Dick, Carolyn and family. Boston USA)

“We could not have picked a better place to stay in Ireland. These wonderful views from the terrace and cosy cottage will stay in our hearts forever.”

(July, 2020. Karin, Radic, Vaclav. Pila Czech Republic.)

 

Out & About

 

Isolated but not remote, the Beara Peninsula defies analysis.
The sea, the air, the history, there’s so much to explore …

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 

The nearest town for basic requirements is Ardgroom just 3km away. Close to the village there is a picturesque stone circle, one of a plethora of megalithic monuments to be found in the region.

For more serious shopping, gourmet restaurants, and an informal farmers market on Wednesdays, Kenmare is a delightful 30 minute drive back up the Bay.

The rugged Beara peninsular is shared by counties Cork and Kerry – Cove Lodge is balanced on the border. The Ring of Beara road twists its way around this headland, exposing colourful hamlets in its path. Narrow, but with minimal traffic, it is a splendid tour, and the views are spectacular. For Cyclists or walkers the Beara Way offers a safer route.

Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

At the tip of the peninsula a spur off the loop road continues to Ballaghboy. From here you can catch Irelands only cable car for the ten minute ride to Dursey Island. The rickety car carries six passengers (or the equivalent in sheep) about 250m above infamous Dursey Sound, where strong tides make travelling by boat hazardous.

photo – Nigel Cox

With magnificent views stretching from the Skelligs to Mizen Head, only a handful of inhabitants brave this wild and windy island. Dolphins, whales and innocent basking sharks are frequently seen in the surrounding seas.

The Caha Mountain range runs down the spine of Beara, and Hungry Hill is the highest of its peaks. The panorama at the top is of course staggering, but the route is a bit all-terrain and needs fine weather.

To cross back to Cove Lodge, don’t miss the Tim Healy Pass. This zigzag road is worth it for the wonderful scenery, and is one of the classic Irish Car Rally stages.

photo – John Gibson

For a period during the 19th century copper mining was the major industry in the area, and much evidence still exists in the small town of Allihies where there is an interesting museum.

Castletownbere on the southern side of the peninsula is Irelands largest white fish port. The harbour is deep and is reputed to be one of the safest in the world. Sheltered by Bear Island, it has a long military history.

The tiny Garnish Island, just off the town of Glengarrif demonstrates this in a series of gardens flush with rhododendrons, azaleas and other surprising plants.

There are ample sites for fishing into deep water straight off the rocky Beara shoreline. Glenbeg Lake, is also teeming with trout and the short Glenmore river spate is extremely prolific, with runs of Spring Salmon coming in March, and Sea-Trout in mid June to late July.

How to get there – Car advised…


By Air: Cheap flights to Kerry Airport (Farrenfore) Cork, Dublin or Shannon.
Kerry Airport – approx 1.5 hour from house.
Cork Airport – approx 2 hours from house.
Shannon Airport – approx 3 hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings from Pembroke/Fishguard to Rosslare.
Stena Express – 120 mins (summer only from Fishguard)
Swansea/Cork Ferry is 2 hours from the house.
Rosslare Port is approx 4.5 hours from house
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is approx 4.5 hours from house

In the centre of the house, the refectory-style dining area flows directly onto that sunny terrace through sweeping glass doors that slide.

The space is shared with a stylishly handle-free fitted kitchen in slate-grey, separated by a large preparation island.

Beyond the kitchen, and a step down, is an expansive and double sofa-ed TV room, with that second corner wall of glazing.

Throughout the home internal views provide clean, fine perspectives out to the garden and vistas beyond; eclectic paintings charm; and underfloor heating ensures a comfortable ambient temperature.

Bedrooms

The first of two large double bedrooms is located on the ground floor, with an ensuite bathroom equipped with monsoon power shower.



Stairs from the entrance hallway reach a landing accessing two kids bedrooms – each with a pair of bunk beds. Alternatively, one of these rooms can be set up with two single beds.

A shared family bathroom with bath and modern power shower, is also off the landing.

The master bedroom is south facing with fantastic views to the Kerry mountains, and its own ensuite shower room.

“Everything is Perfect…

…- we’ve already decided we’re not going home.  We both have very busy jobs so the peace and tranquility here is just so therapeutic.

The setting is just wonderful, sitting watching the weather come across the hills on an evening is just perfect.

The house is perfect. There is nothing I would change – and I’m an architect so i can be quite fussy!

The kitchen is so well equipped with proper knives that you can actually cook rather than trying to work out what you can make with a spoon.

Everything is really easy to use – although it took us 3 days to find the cutlery drawer at the top of the dishwasher, but that’s probably because we’ve switched our brains off now.

All the coats and shoes and bags hide in the utility so everything is kept relatively tidy for us.

The only issues we have is who is going to get to the window seat first and how quickly the days are flying by.

And the recommendations are really helpful – we’ve already tried Jacks and have had early evening drinks at the golf club.

I’m sure you’ll have plenty of good reviews following ours, this holiday is wonderful.
Thank you very much for letting us stay here.”
Elisa B , 2022

We really enjoyed the house…

…thanks, and it worked so well with two families. It was generally well stocked! Our American friends enjoyed it as their first experience in Kerry and of Ireland…
Thanks so much,
Penny B, 2022

 

Out & About

 
Anywhere along the Ring of Kerry you will be spoiled for things to do, and nowhere more so than in Glenbeigh. Often referred to as “the Jewel in the ring of Kerry”, there are truly amazing blue flag beaches for surfing and kiting, fabulous golf courses, incredible lake and river fishing and brilliant restaurants.​

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 

​Just over half an hour from Killarney on the Ring of Kerry, itself one of the highlights of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, Dooks is home of one of the country’s most charming golf links and one of three magnificent beaches that straddle Dingle Bay.

The house is adjacent to both.
Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

With a charming clubhouse and bar, Dooks is one of Ireland’s oldest and more challenging links. It is also home to the protected Natterjack Toad, the only species native to Ireland which features on the club’s logo. They are active at night with a very loud and distinctive mating call.

Dooks beach is just a stone’s throw from the house and looks directly across to the seven glorious kilometres of sand-spit that is Rossbeigh Strand. Ideal for swimming, windsurfing, sailing, horse-trekking, and sea fishing. It also has an excellent children’s playground – Tir na Nog

Directly across Dingle Bay is the extremely popular narrow peninsula of Inch Strand – 45 minutes by car.

The local town of Glenbeigh, just 4km from the house, is a corruption of the Gaelic word meaning “valley of the Birch trees”. Here you will find a small supermarket plus a number of excellent pubs and restaurants.

Caragh Lake in the hills above, above is a beautiful expanse of water 4 miles long, set among broom and heather with majestic mountains for background, it is well known to anglers for excellent fishing.

Coomasaharn Lake, the largest of the lakes in Glenbeigh, is enclosed on three sides by high rocky mountains protecting it from modern polluters and is known for its trout fishing.

Strange things happened when the last Ice Age receded – some creatures became marooned- and this is one of the lakes in Ireland which has the Sliver Blue Char, a rare example of a remnant fish from that period.

Like the Connemara Pony of Galway, the Kerry Bog Pony originated in Ireland. The breed developed physical characteristics including an unusual footfall pattern, which helped it move on soft ground such as peat bogs. These ponies are known for hardiness and an ability to survive in harsh conditions.

Near the village is the ruin of “Wynne’s Folly”, a castle mansion built by Lord Headley Wynne in 1867. The barbarity and brutality of these land owners in pressing the locals for funds is notorious.In the late 1880’s there were numerous evictions, as tenants were just not able to afford an increased rent of a massive 50% in most cases, to pay for the construction of the Wynne castle.However, Wynn eventually drifted into insolvency, and he made his exit from the Glenbeigh. In 1921 Republican forces burned the castle to the ground and it was never rebuilt.

The Dingle Peninsula is littered with much, much older monuments, mostly cross-pillars and standing-stones, and it would take at least three days non-stop to visit everything worth seeing, but if you pass one – have a look, because these carvings put the a in ancient.

image Snalwibna

Tearaght Island, the most westerly of the Blasket Islands, at the mouth of Dingle Bay, is the most westerly point of the British Isles, and the closest point in Europe to America.

Nobody lives there, it is essentially a bird sanctuary, but the stories of a community living on the edge of the world have become classic writing throughout the world.

Killorglin 19km away is the first town on the Ring of Kerry. First, because coaches touring the route are obliged to travel around in one direction to avoid congesting the narrow roads.

The town is renowned for holding the three-day annual Puck Fair – the oldest traditional fair in Ireland, in which a live mountain goat is crowned King, and then put into a small cage on a high stand in the middle of the town square for the duration of the festivities. Starts 10th August.

How to get there – Car advised…

The bright kitchen, doubling as a dining room, occupies one end of the house. Modelled in a simple rustic style with a wood burning stove – though the cottage is never cold, there’s lots of fuel available from the estate.

For occasional reading, bridge games, or Monopoly there is the green room, across the tiles of the entrance lobby.

Terracotta red cabinets and vibrant parrot blinds bring strong accents of colour to the ivory white interior.

The utility room and boot lobby are off one side of the kitchen while cottage stairs rise from the other end to a dreamy double bedroom in the loft. Understated, with traditional furniture and floral fabrics, typical of the restrained decor throughout this home.

The house is equipped with everything you would expect from a five star home. An Eco friendly air source heat pump provides the central heating. If you have a particular requirement, be sure to tell us…

We have just arrived back

…from our lovely break in the south.
We wish to extend our sincere thanks to you, the Thompson family and all of the team at Woodhouse Estate for such a fabulous stay.
Stewards Cottage was beautiful, exceptionally well equipped and immaculate (congratulations to your cleaning staff). The estate is fabulous (even in the rain) and playhouse was a real hit with our children!
We hope to get a chance to stay with you again soon.

Helena and Alan, August 2020

We had an amazing time in Stradbally earlier this month.

It was our first time using the website and while it obviously all looked very high spec, we were pleasantly astounded by just how nice it was. And also, how helpful June and Ted were and were always on hand if we had any questions.
The cottage was both homely and elegant and was a pleasure to stay in and come back to after a day out and about.
We will definitely be in touch again for Steward’s cottage and others. Thank you for helping us to have such a lovely holiday.

Shane & Jenny, July 2020

We had a fabulous week in Stradbally…

Cathy gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived. The cottage was very comfortable & lovely touches like fresh flowers & freshly baked scones on the table – well what more can you ask for.
We were blown away by the whole estate, I don’t believe there is enough focus on that on the website. It was a wonderful surprise to discover the beautiful surroundings and particularly the walled garden. Stunning! The location is just second to none & we spent the week exploring all the lovely beaches & coves along the copper coast. We can’t wait to return to stay in the gatekeepers cottage next time!

We stayed at Steward’s cottage in Woodhouse.

We had a fabulous holiday. The Cottage was only beautiful.
We needed nothing…
Everything was provided.The Cottage was  and the care and attention to detail was exceptional.
The grounds and walled garden were spectacular.

Well done to everyone.
-Susan, 2021

We returned from Stewards Cottage last Sunday

after spending 4 nights in what can only be described as an absolutely wonderful and truly magical place to stay. June welcomed us and guided us through the cottage and the grounds. The cottage itself was excellent with everything you could possibly need but also beautifully decorated giving it a homely and welcoming feel. It is perfectly located to discover the copper coast, cycle the greenway and enjoy the culinary delights of the surrounding towns and villages.
The hidden surprise and treasure was Woodhouse and the grounds of Woodhouse. It was a privilege to be afforded to stay in such a wonderful place, roam the grounds, enjoy the walled garden, fish in the river, stroll the cove, for the kids to play in the place house and to learn of the history of Woodhouse in the museum. In this I discovered an ancestry connection with my maternal grandmother to the owners of Woodhouse in the 1700’s. Marianna kindly spent time with me going through the family history and we are going to stay in touch to delve further into the family connection.
We will definitely be returning to Woodhouse and we most certainly will be using UIH for all our staycations. I have already recommended both Woodhouse and UIH to family and friends. Thank you for all your assistance.

Out & About

This stretch of Southern Coastline known as the Copper Coast, just buzzes with undiscovered gems We just can’t list them all, so here are a few of our favourites…

 

For unique ways to experience the hidden gems on the Copper Coast we recommend you contact Waterford Camino Tours
Here are some of our favourites…

The Locality

 

The tranquil village of StradballyGold Medal Winner in the Tidy Towns 2019 awards – is a short walk out of the estate, and has a grocery shop and a couple of pubs, but for a full range of shops, Dungarvan is a 15 minute drive along the coast and is your best bet.

Above Stradbally, there is the substantial ruin of the largest medieval church in rural Ireland. It contains a fortified presbytery, probably built for protection during the disputes between the Powers and Fitzgeralds, whose boundary lands ran through the area.

Mahon Falls is a dramatic 80m waterfall nestled in the Comeragh Mountains surrounded by breathtaking scenery. There is a car park near Lemybrien 15 minutes away from the house with a not too strenuous hike thereafter, so don’t miss it.

Road Bowling is a traditional and popular local sport that requires hours of practice and technique to master. 28oz steel balls are rolled in turn for just over a mile along bendy roads from Fenor to Annestown.

photo – euheritagedays

About half an hour away, the magnificent Lismore Castle with its long and distinguished history, has splendid gardens open to the public during the summer months, and compelling cultural events are held in the town throughout the year.

They’re mad about cycling in Dungarvan, and it was here that the first cycling club in Ireland was founded in 1869. The local club went on to win the first ever bike race in the British Isles. They still have the cup to prove it.
Here too you will find King John’s Castle, an Anglo-Norman fortification ( 1185) would have originally been entered by drawbridge. It is undergoing reconstruction but there are guided tours, an audio-visual show and exhibitions during the summer season.

This region known as the Copper Coast gets its name from the copper mines that were active in the 19th century. It is a sometimes stormy shoreline that has more than its fair share of ship wrecks.

Tramore is about 35 minutes away, and is a popular resort for tourists in the summer. It has a 5km beach, sand dunes looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean, and a well deserved reputation for surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing.
Clonea Strand is much closer; one of the finest blue flag beaches in the region, and also has a growing reputation as a good surfing beach.

Waterford, about 45 minutes away, is Ireland’s oldest city. Originally a Viking settlement, it is now a major port with much to see and do. Glass, or crystal, was manufactured in the city from 1783 until early 2009, when the factory there was eventually shut down. There is a great annual Viking marathon in June.

How to get there – Car advised…

By Air: Flights to Cork Airport, Waterford or Dublin.
Cork Airport – approx 1.5 hours from house.
Dublin Airport – approx 2.5 hours from house.
Waterford Airport – approx 1 hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings from Pembroke/Fishguard to Rosslare.
Stena Express – 120 mins (summer only from Fishguard)
Rosslare Port is approx 1.5 hours from house
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is approx 2.5 hours from house

Cliffs and Caves; Castles, Curraghs and Ceilis

County Clare

The dramatic Atlantic sunsets that wash this home have not changed in the two hundred years since Castle View was built. The round Rapunzel castle itself – some 400 years older – still stands watch over the six generation farmstead.
Prominently situated on the Burren Way between Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher, there are stunning views of the Aran Islands and the ocean beyond, from this large Regency country house.

 

An elegant vintage family farmhouse

Solid and symmetrical, the old farmhouse has been completely renovated recently, with many of the original features lovingly preserved.

 

Rooms are voluminous, with lofty ceilings edged by moulded cornices.
Roller blinds on curtain-less windows emphasise the impressive doors, architraves and panelling that are original to the house.

The ornate fireplace in the living room is filled with a neat flush fitted stove – both practical and complimentary.
Exposed timber flooring and pastel painted walls are common to all the rooms.

The large contemporary kitchen has plenty of room for a beautiful six seater dining table – not unlike the one in the more formal dining room.

A Regency reeded leg mahogany table, brings a timeless indulgence to the dining room, warmed by the wood burning stove tucked into its recessed hearth.

An outstanding feature here is the enclosed cooker set in a cave-like archway of rough cut stone.

Not only are all the bedrooms comfortable and generous, but there is no getting away from those unique views of the blustery landscape which are a part of every room.

Chequered black and white retro-metro tiling defines the family bathroom.

Outside

Barely one tree dares to raise a shoot in such a Spartan landscape of crashing waves and crying birds. Garden has a different meaning here, where paths meander into the distance to follow the cliffs along this brink of Europe.

We had a wonderful stay in Castle View House

The location was perfect – close to the village, restaurants, bars, etc. And our gateway to the cliffs was just outside the door. The house was very comfortable and homely. Sally could not have been more helpful.
We hope to return someday. Castle View was the perfect setting for a relaxing and fun holiday.

Frances Finn, September 2020

The house was lovely…

the hostess very gracious and helpful, and the location was ‘food for our dreams.’ Very beautiful vistas and very near the famous Cliffs of Moher, in the middle of a cattle farm; the lovely cows came up close to the house but I never heard a peep out of them. The house is historic with thick walls and has been beautifully renovated with updated finishes. We very much appreciated the washer/dryer as we were on a two week trip. The hostess baked us some brown bread and left us a bottle of Prosecco which we used to make Mimosas for breakfast (hair of the dog). The castle tower next door gave us a reference point when venturing out; we said Rapunzel was coming over for tea.
We enjoyed the pubs of Doolin and walking up to the Cliffs.We found pub food much better than expected with a ‘farm to table’ focus. We ate at the Ivy Cottage and it was very good. We shopped in Doolin as they have beautiful local gifts for sale. We also drove thru the Burren region. We didn’t have time to venture to the Aran Islands. Our only regret was not planning to stay longer.
So we must return!

Lori Pegram, September 2019

We had an absolutely fabulous weekend at Castleview House.

The house was more than I had ever expected. It is bright, comfortable and extremely tastefully decorated. The location is incredible with stunning views of the castle and the sea. The house is a stone’s throw from the village where we enjoyed first class food and one or two very enjoyable pints.
Castle View is very well equipped and Sally has thought of everything from hi-viz jackets for the homeward walk from the pub, to beach towels for swimming or surfing. There was an array of games, books and CDs for indoors entertainment and a basket of logs, fire lighters etc for the wood burnings stoves for cozy evenings in. There was home made bread, jam and a bottle of wine to welcome us as well as some basic essentials in the well equipped kitchen. We couldn’t have asked for more.
I booked the house as a surprise get away weekend for my husbands birthday – there was us, our three adult children and a couple of their partners. There was plenty of space for us all to be together (and apart when we wanted). Sally was an absolute star and managed to keep the surprise element going until the very moment she snapped on the lights in the delightful kitchen.
I highly recommend Castleview House to anyone who wants to get away, enjoy the sea air and kick back and relax.
Thanks Sally for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Alison Hollinshead, October 2018

We absolutely loved our stay…

Everything more than met our expectations. My guests were very pleased with their new home for the week. We loved that it was so close to the cliffs…that the trail was right outside of our door. We enjoyed the ability to walk into Doolin and all of the attractions there. The home was exactly as pictured, very well appointed and spacious.
Sally had homemade bread and jams waiting for us! We loved that it was surrounded by pastures full of cows! We named several of them! The beauty was breathtaking and it will be missed.

Jackie Bell, July 2017 – Florida

We had a wonderful time at Castleview house…

the house is in such a nice location and we enjoyed every moment of our short stay. It is a beautiful place to relax and just have a good time. Especially the kitchen really impressed me, it brought a lot of memories back. We spend most of our time together in the kitchen.
Thank you very much for the providing a nice place to stay for us, we will return and proposed it to our friends and family.

Family Koze, September 2017

Staying in Castle View House was by far the best part of our holidays in Ireland.

We’ve been met by Sally Nagle with such tremendous hospitality and warmth that we felt at home immediately. The house is in excellent shape, meeting the highest standard and perfectly equipped with every possible amenity a family needs for great holidays.
We were traveling with three generations and all agreed that our stay simply couldn’t be better. The kids keep saying that the best part of their holidays was the great white house by the cliffs. And the adults agree. For us, waking up with a direct view to the Atlantic in this cosy house was a once in a lifetime experience. We’re grateful for that.
We can highly recommend Castle View House for families with children.

Out & About

 

North Clare is not just a unique landscape with its walks, cliffs and golf, there are wonderful restaurants and of course great music sessions too

We just can’t list them all, so here are a few of our favourites…

Here are some of our favourites…

The Locality

 

The house is located below Doonagore Castle and just 5 minutes walk from the village of Doolin at the northern foothills of the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. The castle is now a completely restored private home, but it has a legacy of brutal treatment of Spanish Armada survivors in 1588.

Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

Doolin is known as the capital of traditional music in Ireland, and most of the social activity in the villages four main pubs caters to this, with skilled musicians stopping for sessions as they pass through. County Clare is particularly home to the concertina.

This is also the nearest point to the Aran Islands and ferries depart from Doolin harbour regularly as well as sightseeing trips below the famous cliffs. Trips to the two smaller islands of Inisheer at 11km or Inishmaan are make for terrific days out, but to appreciate the cliff fortress of Dun Aengus, a stop-over on Inishmore makes sense.

The Cliffs are home to enormous numbers and a variety of nesting seabirds, including the only mainland colony of breeding Atlantic Puffins in Ireland, a species on the decline elsewhere in Europe.

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.

Lisdoonvarna, the next nearest main town, is home to one of Europe’s largest annual matchmaking events. Attracting over 40,000 romantic hopefuls, bachelor farmers and accompanying revellers. The current matchmaker is Willie Daly, a fourth-generation matchmaker.

 

Peaking at 213 metres high, and stretching south for nearly eight km, the dramatic Cliffs of Moher are probably the most visited tourist site in Ireland.

photo – Tobias Helfrich

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. But for most surfers, the seaside town of Lahinch just 8km from the house, is the place to be. Here you will find a magnificent beach where in 2006 a world record for the number of surfers riding on one wave was achieved.

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.

How to get there – Car advised..

By Air: Flights to Dublin or Shannon.
Shannon Airport – less than one hour from house.
Dublin Airport – approx 3 hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings from Holyhead or Liverpool.
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is approx 3 hours from house

A glazed entrance porch, annexed asymmetrically to the granite stone frontage, directly accesses the kitchen end.

The elegant breakfast bar echoes the pink granite of the counters, and neatly partitions the cuisine.

French doors relinquish the sitting room for the chequered stone gallery that skirts the building, surveys the landscape and invites a barbecue.

There are curious peek-a-boo slot windows in the gable end walls, and a slate-black wood burning stove to bring cosiness to the sitting room of an evening.

Louvered blinds and mellow timber tones feature predominantly.

The sleeping accommodation is found up the open-string stairs, where a passageway divides a chic ensuite master bedroom from a commodious twin.

A separate shower room services the second bedroom. Marble tiling accords a contemporary styling in these rooms.

Note that there is a separate Gate Lodge on the demesne that sleeps two, and is available elsewhere on this Unique Irish Homes website.

“We had the most wonderful break in stunning surroundings”

with wall to wall sunshine! We loved the cottage and grounds, spent lots of time walking around  the estate, along the river and through the woodland. We loved the privacy and the peaceful setting. It was a total rest for mind and body.

We found lots of places of interest within a short drive and visited Jerpoint Abbey, The Kennedy Homestead, Mount Congreve Gardens and Duncannon. After a few days though we found we were enjoying our surroundings so much that we just wanted to relax and enjoy nature where we were staying (as well as the resident otter, swans, heron, ducks, horses, sheep and goats).

My husband enjoyed having access to his “own” river and could just pop down in the evenings to fish which was a real treat for him. He says it’s a beautiful stretch of the Nore and enjoyed fly fishing but alas didn’t catch anything! 

-Anne M, 2021

 

 

We hope to return before long!!

I cannot say just how much we all enjoyed our recent stay..

-at this beautiful house.

The accommodation was beautiful in itself with so many lovely touches present on our arrival such as a stocked fridge with fresh farm eggs, butter, cheese and milk as well as a chilled bottle of prosecco! A full to the brim fruit basket was such a treat and we were so grateful to find coffee and tea there on our first day.
