    About this property

    This stone-built, end-terrace cottage is situated just a stone's throw from the harbour in the heart of Carrigaholt in County Clare. With original features throughout, this charming Carrigaholt cottage was once a restaurant and pub and has been transformed to provide contemporary but traditional accommodation for friends and families wishing to discover the beautiful sights that Clare has to offer. This cottage in Carrigaholt has three bedrooms, two with original stone feature walls which exude the character of this cottage. The spacious fitted kitchen has everything you need to display your culinary skills while the kids chill out in the sitting area with sliding doors to the rear patio and garden. After dinner, you can retire to the sitting room and absorb the history of this cottage with its shutter windows, stone walls and feature fireplace with multi-fuel stove. Step out of the front door and you're in the heart of the village and within walking distance of all amenities, whilst to the rear you can relax in the tranquil garden. Well known for its fishing harbour, Carrigaholt also has a shop and several pubs where a warm Irish welcome can always be found. There is also a beach nearby where you can enjoy swimming and maybe some dolphin watching if you are lucky! Within a short drive is Loop Head which offers breathtaking coastal scenery. The seaside town of Kilkee is also nearby and has a fantastic range of pubs and restaurants all offering excellent seafood dishes. This cottage in Carrigaholt is the perfect character retreat for your Clare getaway.

    " It's in a perfect position in the village, with very friendly neighbours and business owners around. Wifi is available in the pub just a few moments away. Fabulous fish shop a short walk away (Sealyons). We enjoyed a trip on the boat to see the dolphins, the booking office is right opposite the house. It's an excellent place to stay. "
    Mr Robinson ‐ 1 May 2019
    " Everything required under one roof to make our week a lovely experience. With the blessing of good weather the location was ideal for a relaxing break, a village with 3 pubs, throw in a seafood restaurant, a fast food outlet and glorious seascapes and great accomodation....what more could you want (maybe two weeks). All the pubs were great to have a pint in (especially Carmody's bar, a fine pint of Guinness and hospitality) and all within walking distance of Bidsie Bricke's cottage. Would we go back again...certainly. "
    Mr Kavanagh ‐ 1 May 2019
    " Warm welcome from Caroline. Found everything clean and ready, and the kitchen was very good. The fact that there was no en-suite bedroom didn't bother us, but it may be an issue for some. Friendly neighbours, especially across in the post office. And an excellent restaurant up the street. Hope to come back sometime. "

    "It's not a 5-star hotel but has all the charm and comfort expected in an old stone cottage. The location was fabulous. Close to Killkee with it's beautiful Cliff Walks, beaches, stores & restaurants. LoopHead peninsula is a hidden treasure. The cottage was everything we had hoped it would be..... comfortable, clean & cozy. The backyard is private and the bay is right outside the door and a nice place to sit after a day of touring.

Mary, the keyholder, was wonderful! The comment about cobwebs is misleading.... may have seen a couple small ones but not unlike those that show up in my own home. I agree the addition of WIFI would be nice for researching the next day's activities. A simple coffee maker also would be nice. Cell phone coverage was hampered by the thick stone walls but stepping outside solved that problem. Would recommend this cottage to anyone booking an Irish holiday. "

    "A well equipped house in a lovely, friendly village."

    "We chose Carrigaholt for a week for a bit of peace and quiet and the unspoilt wild we had read about. The large stone cottage used to be a restaurant and has a lot of original features. The beds are comfy, the lounge spacious and the wood burger on hand if you want to cosy up. The place wasn't entirely spotless but a few cobwebs did not deter us. There is no wifi, but that's sometimes a good thing. The post office across the street is great, and the postmaster will help you with any questions, even supply you with eggs and local produce should you fancy it. He get 5* in our experience. The cottage is also ideally located at the end of the small street where right next to the little oyster bay which gets the afternoon sun. Lovely village, lovely cottage and lovely stay."

    "A very relaxing holiday in a well-loved and comfortable family home. "

    "Had a wonderful stay, we have 3 three children from 2 -6 years and the house and garden were very child friendly. We were looked after very well and the locals were friendly especially Pat in the post office who brought freshly baked scones to our door. Mary made sure we had enough of everything and even called during the week to see if we were enjoying our stay. We loved the original decor of the house, It is an ideal quiet location for a relaxing break with views of the sea. It was close to beaches for collecting seashells and Kilkee with its cliff views and Loophead lighthouse. There is also a local fish shop where you can buy fish caught fresh earlier in the day. The Long Dock Pub with its wonderful food and welcome is also worth a visit. We hope to return again next year."

    "Had a warm welcome on arrival and the location was perfect. The cottage was a great size and very comfortable. We loved the beautiful lounge and multi stove, and the playroom was a great addition."
    - Mr Mcmillan, July 2018
    "Problems with the water were dealt with in good time and we really enjoyed the relaxed nature of the cottage. The village itself was very welcoming with lots of quiet, peaceful things to do. The exceptional weather certainly helped but we would be glad to re-visit Carrigaholt and this perfectly well-equipped cottage any time, and in any weather! Not sure who ' Cottages' are, but we'd highly recommend Hogan's Cottages, if this one is anything to go by. We thought we were renting via Hogan's, which we presumed was an Irish company. Is it simply a subsidiary of a larger, non-Irish company? For some reason that seems like a disappointing shame, yet sadly typical of today's hoodwinking culture. Ho-hum, we had a good holiday, although we'd rather have contributed more to the Irish economy."

The house is perfect for a relaxing family break and we will be back next year. The owner laid on everything that we could have needed for our stay and even sent a newspaper cutting of local walks to the house addressed to me - really thoughtful. Carrigaholt is lovely and friendly and is in a perfect spot for exploring the west of Ireland without being overrun by holidaymakers and screaming kids. We managed to watch dolphins swimming about by the castle, took part in the tractor run and enjoyed each of the 4 pubs in the village."
