Pepie and Nigel have recently restored the cottage to a high standard. It has three bedrooms, very spacious kitchen/diner and living rooms.

Oil central heating with a solid fuel stove in the living room and solid fuel range. Ample parking all in a secluded location.

It is located about 10 minutes drive from Miltown Malbay and Spanish Point.

The Trump Golf Club hotel at Doonbeg is the closest hotel but a bit pricey.

Kilrush is our nearest significant town. If you’d like to be in the middle of Kilrush, Crotty’s Hotel is a pub/hotel in the town square.

It can be noisy especially in the weekends and since it changed hands the comments we get are less favourable
