Deelin Mór Lodge
from £346 /night help
House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 11
As you wind down the drive towards Deelin Mór this remote spot charms and envelops you. Surrounded by Burren hills, with panoramic views of the valley, the house appears as you round the bend and pass by the bee hives. Design-led, bespoke and nestled at the heart of a 300 acre organic farm, Deelin is out of the ordinary in every way. From the outside you see an Irish Georgian Hunting Lodge with huge sash windows fill the house with light and views. This traditional exterior belies the modern and simple interior. Reminiscent of an art space with high ceilings, white walls and limestone and oak floors, the large comfortable furniture and soft furnishings bring colour, warmth and comfort to the simplicity of the design. Underfloor heating warms your feet and open fires warm your heart. Deelin is a special place, a home which welcomes you as a long lost friend and invites you to relax as if you were in your own home.
The house is perfect for groups of friends or family to get together, but it has also hosted a romantic getaway for two, two honeymoons and a 25th wedding anniversary. As the home of a family with 5 young children it is a great place to bring your kids who can run around the garden without the worry of road traffic. Private and secluded, it's a perfect retreat from a busy life with lots of local sites on your doorstep if you don't want to travel too far; if outdoor adventure is your metier you are surrounded by walking & cycling routes and activity providers (surfing, fishing, climbing, kayaking, caving, riding, snorkelling etc); or if you want to travel slightly further afield we are centrally located and an easy day trip to Connemara, the Aran Islands, Galway, Limerick, The Shannon. Alternatively relax over a good book in the Library, watch a movie from our large selection or play one of the many games supplied.

The Province of Munster region
North Clare is famous for its mix of mountain, coast, lakes and rolling farmland. Delicious seafood, great music and 'craic' and numerous festivals - Lisdoonvarna's Matchmaker, Kilfenora's Father Ted Fest, the Cruinniu and Cuckoo festivals in Kinvara (across the border in Galway), Ballyvaughan's Burren in Bloom, Corofinn's Festival of Finn and the Burren Winterage festival to name but a few. It's an archaeologists' dream with burial tombs, ring forts, tower houses, hidden villages, fullacht fia. There are caves for exploring, mountains to climb, lakes to swim in, surfing and sailing, riding and kayaking, cycling, hillwalking. And when you get tired there are homely pubs with delicious Guinness, great seafood and welcoming fires.
We are located in the centre of the Burren - an area of outstanding natural beauty, a unique floral landscape, home to the Burren National Park and a UNESCO Geopark. Within this incredible landscape the house is situated on a 300 acre organic farm, nestled in the mountains and with panoramic views of, and direct access to, this incredible landscape. In 'the middle of nowhere' but centrally located for local villages, sites and activities as well as the delights of Connemara and the Aran Islands, Deelin Mór offers unique access to everything the wider area has to offer while being secluded and private.

"Most amazing house - perfect getaway"
We had the most amazing stay at Deelin mor this summer.
The pictures that look great on the website can't describe the house. It is amazingly beautiful and yet so practical even with a baby. Everything is well thought and makes you feel instantly at home.
The area around the house is incredible, we took great walks everyday, a week is perfect to discover the Burren. The house itself is among beautiful farmland (even if the bull was a bit scary... Would recommend to access the house by car rather than by foot when he's here !!!), you can enjoy it from the garden and don't even have to leave the property to feel deep in nature.
Finally Helen is a great hostess, she had stocked the house with delicious local food and bath products, and had even baked us bread (better than you could buy anywhere in the area). She was very friendly and had great advice : what to do, where to have food, drinks etc...
Only regret : the house is so big we regretted not to have invited friends to enjoy it with us.
We definitely want to come back, and strongly recommend this incredible house.
Thank you so much for this lovely review. We would love to have you - and your friends - back and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
Despite the sign (a legal requirement) the bull is really pretty docile and is settling in well to his new role of prospective father, though you are right to always be careful around farm animals. Hopefully he'll be very relaxed next time you come - or come in winter and he and his mates will be up the mountain and far away!
Thanks again for the review. We are delighted you enjoyed the house and the area so much and that it compared well with your more normal summer holiday spots. Do please come again.

Hopefully it will be for a little longer and we can point you in the direction of a few more of our best walks and local delights!

"Perfect weekend or week getaway"
Went just for the weekend - very 'doable' from London (into Shannon). If you want to combine spending time with friends/family together in a beautiful house, in a completely rural location, … More
So pleased you enjoyed your break from the rat race with us! Yes, we are very easy to get to from London - only an hour's flight to Shannon from one of the many airports. Next time give Ryanair a try. It's very functional and extremely cheap if you book at the right time. The early flight on a Monday morning means you can enjoy a full weekend here which allows you to properly relax - from my own experience I know that Friday to Sunday goes far too quickly! We very much look forward to your next visit - you'll have to come back for surfing in the summer!!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Deelin Mor and that it helped you 'fall in love' with the Burren. It had the same effect on me, so I completely understand! You and your friends would be welcome back any time. It was lovely to host such a fun group who looked after and respected our house so well.

"Amazing house in the heart of West Ireland"
Helen and her husband, the house hosts where extremely attentive. The attention to details was incredible! From the flower arrangements from flowers from their garden, to a welcome package of local food and chocolates which were delicious!
This is paradise for both young and older kids! For the youngsters (and oh well, also us, the oldest ;) ), they have a trampoline right outside the house. They also have toys, loads of kids friendly movie and Ruby, the star! Their super well behave dog!
And for us, a library, a great spacious kitchen and the pool table on the basement.
We all fit so comfortably (6 adults, 4 kids 5,10, 18 & 21). Rooms are great, and there are plenty of bathrooms for everyone. But the best of all is the master bathroom! You can miss a long relaxing bath in that gorgeously design bathroom!
I would recommend this house to everyone!
Thank you so much for this lovely review. I'm so glad that the efforts we go to to make guests feel welcome and at home are appreciated - it makes it all worth while.
From our point of view we enjoyed hosting you and your family very much. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the house and found enough space to bring the family together for a proper break. I really hope you decide to repeat the experience in the not too distant future! Ruby is missing you greatly and will welcome you back with wagging tail and lots of excited hopping about.
With kindest regards
Helen & Enda (and Ruby!)

"Beautiful, modern, spacious house in untouched wilderness"
We booked the house as a party of 8 over Easter weekend at the last minute when our booked choice fell through. We couldn't have been happier to arrive at a house that was much better than our original! The house easily fitted the 8 of us (four couples) with large bedrooms and a huge kitchen where we spent most of of our time.
The area is beautiful and we went for long walks in the hills around the house and spent a few days exploring the area for local delights like a chocolate shop and fishmonger. With easy access to Kinvara (20 mins) and galway (45mins) it was a great base for the weekend.
The owner Helen was the best part of the house. She was able to give us tips hunt down the best food and sights in the area as well as making sure the house was ready for us from the moment we arrived even laying in a full breakfast for our first day! The is one of the best holiday properties we have rented, and we have rented a lot.
Negatives - be aware that there is no wifi and only one proper shower though we made do with the additional bath and rough shower room downstairs
I'm so glad that we could accommodate your party at short notice and that you enjoyed your stay here so much. We do our best to make our guests feel welcome and to give them as much access to local food, amenities and culture as possible so I'm delighted that you felt looked after in this way and that you were comfortable in and enjoyed the house and its surroundings. We hope that you will come to stay again at some point. Kind regards and many thanks for the review.

I'm glad you and your girlfriend enjoyed the house so much. It's a great spot to really get away from it all, and we've had a number of guests who like just hanging out and watching the stars / cows / clouds drift by so you're not alone. Yes, mobile reception is poor (O2 is non-existant; vodafone better in parts) but hopefully the landline meant you could have contact with the outside world if you really needed it, and it does mean that the stresses of everyday life stay where they belong and out of your break! We very much hope you will come and stay again.
