Our home is in an idyllic location overlooking the Slieve Bearna mountains with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. You’ll feel right at home and love the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. We’ve all modern conveniences without losing the old-world charm. Excellent walking trails, lots of outdoor activities. An ideal base for exploring Clare’s many tourist attractions including Cliffs of Moher, Burren, Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, Craggaunowen, Ennis, Galway and a host of hidden gems.

Ambienti
As one of our guests reviewed "We all looked forward to this vacation, but none of us expected what we experienced: a glorious, well-equipped, home, with so many delightful nooks and crannies, not to mention the great collection of books and games, great beds and bathrooms, and a terrace with views from one's dreams".

Our home in Glendree was designed to bring the "outside in" and a run of French doors, multiple skylights and large expanses of double glazing throughout the house all serve to capture the view, solar warmth and light.
When guests step into the bright, spacious, open plan living room for the first time, invariably, there's a big 'wow!'

When we’re home we like to spend some of our time with family and friends – walking, talking, cooking, dining . . . and at other times quietly reading, listening to music and watching movies. Our high quality cook’s kitchen sits at the centre of how we live and the big tables, wall of books, cushy sofas and reclining chairs in front of a fireplace and a big screen ... all help make you comfortable and relaxed.

When it's wet outside, guests love our plant-filled conservatory and when the sun is shining, there's the terrace overlooking the valley complete with firepit, cushions and fluffy blankets to make you as comfortable outside as we know you'll be inside.

A stream runs through our back yard orchard and can be heard from the terrace. All around you there are green, rolling hills, hedge-lined lanes, and moss-covered stone walls and cottages – all made for quiet, contemplative walking or if you feel like it - more active hiking, cycling, fishing, riding, biking or exploring the many award-winning Irish tourist attractions within an hour's drive.

Our house is a real mix of the old and the new. A complete renovation and extension of the main house was undertaken in 2008 and two years later, the old dairy or 'cowshed' as the kids call it, was connected to the main house and converted into an stylish, private retreat area sleeping four or five complete with separate entrance, wood-burning stove, sunken lounge and large screen TV. The original 300 year old cottage still stands proudly next to it and has more recently become a studio for three local potters.

We find many of our guests, despite the best touring plans and our proximity to major tourist attractions, simply relax and stay close, enjoying our home and close environs.

FEAKLE VILLAGE, home of the famous Feakle Festival held each summer for over 35 years now. Here you’ll find Peppers Pub with traditional Irish music sessions every Wednesday and Sunday nights, and Shorts (Lena's) Bar with the longest running session in Ireland – every Thursday night for nearly 50 years - great craic! The Pepper’s publican, Gary Pepper, will even arrange a minibus to come and collect small groups from the house and take you to his pub for a pub dinner and some music. Very, very quiet during the day. Everything happens behind closed doors at night except for Peppers which is always open!

TULLA VILLAGE, home of the famous Tulla Ceili Band, is also where you'll find a well-stocked Supervalu supermarket with fresh crusty bread baked throughout the day and a decent selection of wines, the Holly Tree Café, an ATM in the supermarket, and a Saturday morning Farmers Market in the old Courthouse.

EAST CLARE WAY scenic walk, a 172 km loop through forests, bogs and magnificent scenery. Pick and choose sections of it to suit yourself, the weather . . . your fancy.

12 O’CLOCK HILLS WALKING TRAILS. Very poplar.
There are two main trails – 5 & 8 km. Scenic walks including pine needle covered paths through the forest with river and streams. Amazing 360 degree views from the top of the summit walk.. Information boards at the two trailheads with route maps, difficulty levels, safety info etc.

CRAGGAUNOWEN ARCHEOLOGICAL PARK & Open Air Museum. Situated on 50 acres of magnificent wooded grounds, the park interprets Ireland's pre-historic and early Christian eras and features a stunning recreation of some of the homesteads, animals and artefacts which existed in Ireland over 1,000 years ago.

KNAPPOGUE CASTLE: built in 1467, it's a magnificent example of a medieval tower house and has long been the seat of the MacNamara clan.

ENNIS TOWN: A picturesque, narrow-streeted, historic market town. Totally worth a wander though. “As the capital of a renowned music county, Ennis is bursting at the seams with pubs featuring live sessions almost every night of the week.

CLARE EQUESTRIAN CENTRE: at Clare Equestrian Centre they provide the quintessential experience of horse riding in Ireland and cater for all levels and disciplines.

Also offers evening entertainments: such as the Medieval Banquet and the Traditional Irish Night held in the converted Corn Barn in the Folk Park.

LOUGH DERG, for Holy Island visits, a peaceful picnic by the banks, a looped walk around the lake or a river cruise.

COOLE PARK near Gort - over 1000 acres of beautiful woodlands and wetlands and, in the early 20th century, the centre of the Irish Literary Revival.

THE BURREN: a vast, moon-like area - one of Ireland's most compelling landscapes. Cool grey rock etched with crevices and cracks tumbling down into the wild blue Atlantic Ocean. Has inspired artists, writers and poets for centuries.

CLIFFS of MOHER: entirely vertical with a sharp edge. Views are tremendous incl. the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. You can hear the booming far below as the waves crash. Take the time to go into the Interactive Exhibition in the Visitor Centre – we love it!

CLIFF WALKS: There several spectacular walks to be done starting at the Cliffs of Moher going to Hags Head, Doolin or Liscannor. Check local updates. Stay on the marked pathways.

POULNABRONE DOLMEN (a Portal Tomb): A prehistoric portal tomb, dating between 4200BC and 2900BC in the Burren.

DOOLIN – where you can catch the ferry to the ARAN ISLANDS as a day trip or longer.
Going to the Islands is totally worth the effort – a real authentic step back in time.

LAHINCH GOLF CLUB We’re not golfers but apparently this is a hidden gem and according to one critic, it’s ‘a course that you will find yourself grinning at while you are playing and you'll look back with an even bigger smile.’

LAHINCH SURF SCHOOLS: several to choose from. One even offers offer free sauna, jacuzzi and steam room with every surf lesson. Very popular summer activity.

AQUASPLASH Inflatable Water Park is located on Lough Derg at Dromineer. One of the largest floating aqua parks in Ireland. Also kayak and SUP hire.

AND . . . SAVED ONE OF THE BEST FOR LAST . . .

GALWAY CITY: a thriving, bohemian, cultural city with labyrinthine cobbled streets, colourful shop facades and busy café & bar culture and it’s the renowned Festival Capital of Ireland. Start at the bottom of SHOP STREET, have fish and chips at McDONAGHS or chowder at the QUAYS and then slowly wander enjoying the plentiful buskers up and into Eyre Square.

Hi.

We're Australian born and for the last few decades, we'd based ourselves and our children, now grown up, in the beautiful traditional music heartland of East Clare, Ireland. We travelled a lot as a family and lived and worked in lots of interesting places. You'll get glimpses of where we've been in our home through our collection of books, art and quirky objects. We love music, cooking, reading, exploring, hiking and making things - sometimes for function and sometimes just for fun or beauty.

We now spend most of our time back in Australia to be near aging family. We have a good life and are grateful for what we have. We also love to share it with family, friends and respectful guests.
