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.
The County Galway/County Clare region
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.

"Location and Wonderful House"
Wow! First the location on Lisconner Bay is incredible. The view from the well appointed glass porch across the bay brings you both the rural feel of Ireland and a great view of downtown Lahinch. Wat… More

"Cozy and comfortable in rather harsh weather conditions."
Bert, the owner, greeted us with a welcoming and informative tutelage of the workings of the cottage and the area. We spent a week at "Salty Gables" with another couple celebrating both our 50 year wedding anniversaries. The weather was rainy, chilly and windy, but the views were outstanding watching the surf pound against the cliffs. The accommodations were comfortable with a cozy fireplace for warmth and atmosphere that we took full advantage. We were supplied with all the amenities that enabled us to live as easy and pleasant as being in our own homes.
We took many day trips and found the sights interesting and beautiful. The surrounding pubs and restaurants were delightful and always an enjoyable refuge from the weather. We all recommend this a satisfying and enjoyable place to stay If it didn't cost so much to get there from the US we would love to try it there again, only in the summer.

"Well equipped House with fabulous views"
We had a lovely week in predictably unsettled weather. There is a wealth of places worth visiting in the surrounding areas. Highlights are cliffs of moher, Bunratty castle, beach at kilkee and the surf at lahinch. Kids loved the playpark in lahinch. For eating out ' The stone cutters kitchen ' on the way to cliffs of moher is family friendly and serves good food- there is a play park on the grounds and they have free wi-fi. Vaughn's in liscannor is pretty special and they have a good kids menu. Best burger and chips in a long time from Bay fish and chips in the village. The house is in a development of holiday homes but has a prime location with fab views. It is well equipped and you feel encouraged to make yourself at home. There is a good sized garden for the kids to have a run about in.

"Home away from home but more fun !"
Our brief stay was too short and great fun. We came for the golf and were not let down. Salty Gables was perfect. Spacious, comfortable , relaxing and light filled. Such a pleasure to be outside and hear nothing but the water.The hosts were friendly and helped with suggestions for dining ,directions , etcetera. Egans was a hoot, Vaughans was great fun and good food, Doolin was not too far to have a great dinner and enjoy the music. We played golf 5 times in 5 days and all were fantastic.Within driving range for a short stay are Lahinch, Doonbeg, Adare Manor, Galway (* great treat especially for the price ) .We had a great time all around.
