Property Features

Bright capacious interiors…

Cool white walls and warm oak tones, together with coffee-and-cream neutral fabrics, combine to create a spacious ambience throughout this home. Tall floor to ceiling windows lining the rear of the house flood morning light into the open plan living areas, and along the hallway.

Kitchen, dining and seating areas join seamlessly together to form a central hub at the western end. The tobacco granite hearth with contemporary glass fronted fireplace, echo the granite surfaces in the kitchen area.

There are dazzling views from the living room across the ocean to the Aran Islands. Glass double doors open through from the dining area to a quiet sitting room – just the place to curl up on the sumptuous sofa with a good read.

Furniture has been carefully selected, with the oak theme following through to the breakfast bar and solid doors. Modern rugs, paintings, and tasteful objets will delight guests.

If you want a bath, there is a luxurious bathroom with marble floor to ceiling, at the end of the hall. As with all the bathrooms, it has under-floor heating.

From the dining area, sliding double doors open onto a broad stone slab terrace – no better place to plan the day’s activities over a breakfast barbeque. The remaining rooms of the house emanate from a broad corridor with tall windows overlooking the terrace and rear garden.

Two double bedrooms off the opposite side, are beautifully fitted out, with ample built in wardrobe space, and oak furnishings. Both have ensuite shower rooms and views out to sea. A dressing table alcove cleverly links the second bedroom to the hallway.

A dog-leg oak stairway halfway down the hall, leads to the another double bedroom with expansive oak panelled headboard and a velux view. A single bedroom occupies the opposite gable end upstairs, with a bright WC on the landing serving both.

The cottage is equipped with everything you would expect from a luxury home, and has good mobile phone signal.

Outside

there are views in all directions. The cottage, and three quarters of an acre of private landscaped garden align effortlessly with the surrounding terrain. The quiet cul-de-sac road is virtually traffic free.
Relish the mid-summer sun setting over the Aran Islands from the circular stone garden table with a glass of something white.

Out and 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.

Things to do

The Locality

The house is located above Doonagore Castle and just 1km from the village of Doolin at the northern foothills of the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. The castle has a legacy of brutal treatment of Spanish Armada survivors in 1588.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.

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.

Built in 1835 by local entrepreneur Cornelius O’Brien, as an observation point for the hundreds of tourists who even then visited the Cliffs, the tower bearing his name is unmistakeable on the headland.
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.

Beneath the Cliffs, enormous waves born of distant Atlantic storms race towards the coast. Big wave surfers travel by jetski 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.
