The County Galway/County Clare region
County Clare is situated on the west coast of Ireland, with Galway to the north and Kerry south of the Shannon, and the beautiful Loop Head Peninsula to the west. Querrin Creek is located in the heart of the Loop Head Peninsula.
West Clare encompassing the area west of county town Ennis is largely undiscovered by tourists. West Clare is famous for the Loop Head Peninsula (Irish Times best place to holiday 2013), the unique Burren area, traditional music, a spectacular coastline and the quality and diversity of its seafood. Lisdoonvarna has achieved fame, or notoriety, with the annual bachelor festival, while the nearby Cliffs of Moher can equally thrill and scare!
Carrigaholt, adjacent to Querrin Creek, has Dolphin Watch, daily boat trips to visit the largest inshore pod of bottlenose dolphins in Europe. Situated in the Special Area of Conservation, boasting a long sandy beach, excellent pubs and restaurants, and watched over by a 15th century castle, Carrigaholt is a firm favourite. Kilkee is a Victorian resort, graced by a semi-circular promenade and strand, awe-inspiring cliff walks, an 18 hole golf course and memories of Richard Harris, a long term resident. For the serious golfer, Doonbeg has a new links course designed by Greg Norman and listed in the top hundred courses in the world.
Nestling on the shore of the Loop Head Peninsula, overlooking the broad Shannon Estuary and the rugged Kerry coastline, lies Querrin Creek. Removed from the stress of everyday life, this luxurious retreat offers sweeping horizons, towering Atlantic skies and the myriad flora and fauna of this E.U. designated Special Area of Conservation.
Located within easy reach of Carrigaholt and Kilkee, the discerning guest will find a wealth of taste and experience in these two very different and very picturesque coastal villages. Sandy beaches, cliff walks, seafood restaurants and traditional pubs abound. Music mingles with turf smoke, guinness complements luscious oysters, and lively conversation imbues the visitor with a sense of belonging and well-being.
Dolphin watch from Carrigaholt, the Loop Head Lighthouse museum, marine activities in the Kilrush Adventure Centre, a nostalgic 'Percy French' West Clare Railway excursion, Doonbeg Golf Club, the recently discovered Viking graveyard and the famous Cliffs of Moher, are but a few of the experiences on hand to make a memorable holiday in Querrin Creek.

"A great location and beautiful accommodation."
We stayed at the beginning of July and the house is beautiful and in a nice quiet location which is perfect for families with young kids. Great communication from the owners and we would have no hesitation in staying here again.
We are delighted that you and your family had such a good holiday at our cottage. Very pleased also that you found everything to your satisfaction in the cottage. The area is indeed beautiful and there is lots of space for children. We do our best to make the cottage as comfortable and well equipped as possible. We hope to welcome you back. Thank you.

I am really delighted that you and your family had such a good holiday at our cottage and that you found everything to your satisfaction. Our previous guests had mentioned that the washer/ dryer was not functioning perfectly and the only immediately available replacement was a washing machine. I am sorry that you had no tumble dryer during your stay. Again I am really pleased that West Clare and the area lived up to your expectations.

"Beautiful house, scenic location and great value for money"
House was lovely and clean when we arrived. Bed linen all ready in every bedroom. It is deceptively spacious house with four bedrooms and yet none of them are box rooms or seemed cramped. We made use of the patio and barbecue and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfect house for at least up to four children if not more- it is often hard to find a house to accommodate a larger family. Perfect holiday house.
I am delighted that you and your family had such a great holiday at Querrin Creek. I am very pleased that you found the cottage clean, warm and inviting. It is lovely area and well deserved of the recent award of 'The best Holiday Destination in Ireland'. Thank you for your generous comments.

I am really delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and that you found our cottage clean and welcoming. I appreciate that our guests are tired on arrival and hope a moment with a welcome cup of tea and the beautiful views of the Estuary helped you to unwind and relax. We are thinking about WiFi for next season and looking at options. Thank you for your kind comments and really glad that you had such an enjoyable holiday.

"Comfortable house in lovely, peaceful setting"
Our family had a wonderful week at Querrin Creek - the cottage is well equipped, comfortable and very tidy. The location was peaceful and scenic, and not far from town for supplies. We found it an excellent base for exploring the west coast area, with plenty to see and do near the cottage and further afield. Summer evening walks by the estuary were a lovely way to end each day. We enjoyed the house and the area so much we would have happily have stayed on indefinitely.
I am delighted that your holiday at Querrin Creek was such a great experience for you and your family. I am also very pleased that you found the cottage comfortable and well equipped. I like my guests to feel 'at home' and have a relaxed stay and glad that you had such a positive experience during your stay. The area is truly lovely and you certainly seem to have enjoyed the many tourist attractions that are on offer. Many thanks.
