Salty Gables is a modern well insulated home which exudes warmth as soon as you enter. The decor is tasteful and relaxing and there is an immediate sense of being in a home as opposed to a rental property with furnishings and accessories which reflect this. There is a full electric heating system throughout when required and the living and bedrooms are well laid out with ample space.
To the north of the county, the rugged Atlantic coast rises nearly 700 feet above the sea in the shape of the Cliffs of Moher. A couple of miles away, you'll find an amazing Karst limestone region called the Burren, which features caves, underground streams and rare alpine flora. The area also has plenty of fascinating archaeological sites, including the 5000-year-old Poulnabrone Dolmen.
Charming villages like Doolin, Fanore and Ennistymon are famed for their traditional music sessions. Clare is an ideal destination for those in search of the outdoors; sea, lake and river fishing, walking and cycling and of course golfing are all popular activities in the county.
Liscannor is a quiet fishing village where time moves at it's own pace and where people have time to meet and greet. It does however, boast of one very famous former son - John P Holland, born in Liscannor February 24th. 1841 - who was the inventor of the submarine. What would he think of all the surfing activity that now abounds on his former 'doorstep'.
Situated just a couple of miles from Lahinch is yet another small small friendly holiday centre and world famous golfing mecca. Lahinch nestles at the head of Liscannor Bay beside a 2 km long beach of golden sands. It is ideal for bathing and swimming and many water sports including surfing. Nearby Liscannor bay is the perfect spot for a variety of other water sports including kite-surfing, wind surfing and sea kayaking. Nearby Kilkee is renowed for its diving and the Kilkee Dive Centre is fully equipped and caters to both beginners and experts.
The old Irish name for Lahinch was Leacht Ui Chonchuir - the tomb of O'Connor - the chieftain of an old local Celtic clan, who according to tradition is buried here.
It has two 18 hole golf courses. The renowned championship course celebrated in 1992 its foundation 100 years ago.
Even though it is intimate and unspoilt , Lahinch has a whole range of modern amenities and services including indoor pool and aquarium, pubs and restaurants. In holiday season the whole place is alive with music and dance.
It is an ideal centre from which to explore North Clare, including the Burren, one of the world's most unique lands.
