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 County Galway/County Clare 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.
