    About this property

    This charming, coastal semi-detached cottage is situated overlooking the harbour in the heart of Carrigaholt, a delightful little fishing village on the southern side of the Loop Head Peninsula in County Clare. This character cottage has been lovingly rebuilt on it's original site and now offers all the modern comforts you could ask for during your holiday, whilst still retaining some traditional features, including a large feature fireplace. The ground floor comprises of a bright and airy double height dining/living area with full-height glazing and sloping glass roof, a large fitted farmhouse kitchen, and a sitting area with a warming woodburning stove. Upstairs, three lovely bedrooms complete the accommodation, including one that boasts an en-suite shower room. There is a spacious gallery area with extensive views to the west over the salt marshes of the estuary, with a wide variety of bird life to watch. For those hazy, summer evenings, the doors of the dining area can open out to the rear patio where you can dine alfresco or simply relax with a glass of wine. The quiet village of Carrigaholt is home to a selection of friendly traditional pubs, a Post Office and a shop, all of which will greet you with a warm Irish welcome. The village pier serves local fishing boats and sea angling tours, as well as award-winning dolphin tours that operate regularly within the estuary, which is home to one of Europe’s largest dolphin pods! There is also a sandy beach where you can enjoy an afternoon swimming, lounging or snoozing, whatever your preference! The Loop Head Peninsula offers visitors a mouth watering slice of breathtaking coastal scenery with postcard views in all directions. Why not venture out to the Loop Head Lighthouse, or visit the nearby seaside village of Kilkee, which is a popular family spot with a sandy beach, clifftop walk and a selection of eateries and cafes? A fantastic location for your Wild Atlantic Way vacation!

    The small, picturesque fishing village of Carrigaholt is located at the mouth of the Moyarta river, which flows into the River Shannon estuary, in County Clare. The village has a ruined castle, a shop, pubs and restaurants. There is also a beach, which is ideal for swimming, along with sea fishing opportunities and boat trips for dolphin watching.

    "The village of Carrigaholt is small, friendly and picturesque. The locals were lovely everywhere we went on the Loop Head Peninsula, they were genuinely happy to see us and our 2 kids got royal treatment wherever we went. Old Pier House itself is just beautiful. Perfect for families, lots of space to spread out, all the facilities you need and all the comforts of home. We happened to stay during the amazing weather at the end of June and enjoyed every minute we spent in the house, patio doors open, warm breeze coming through, plenty of games to keep the kids entertained. We would definitely love to go back there, even if the sun hadn’t shone for us, the house alone is wonderful. A perfect holiday destination."

    "Had the pleasure to stay at the Old Pier House in September . The house has been built and designed superbly and within minutes of arriving it felt like home . Even with 7 of us in the house it never felt cramped due to the space the house had to offer . ( especially the kitchen / dinning area ) . Location wise its excellent with the 3 local pubs and the Long Dock restaurant no further than 2 minutes walk away . All in all it was a fantastic week away and I have already booked for next year and look forward to staying in the Old Pier again ."
