Another, Joseph McHugh's, is a famous traditional music venue and the third, Egans, is an atmospheric pub with sun-filled beer-garden and an excellent pint of Guinness.

"Home from Home"
A house with lots of character and Irish charm. A very warm welcome was had - despite a 10.30pm arrival from us. Sara had prepared a home made soup and had baked some fresh soda bread with a few other essentials placed in the fridge ready for our arrival. Very subtle touch but really appreciated- particularly being 6.5 months pregnant at the time and having been travelling for several hours. The Coach House is quaint, clean and conveniently located to the main street in Liscannor - I would say a three minute walk to fish and chip shop around the corner and 5 to the local pubs. Four pubs to choose from and we made sure we surveyed them all! Most evenings we actually drove into Lahinch which was literally a 7 minute drive up the road. Again many a good evening spent here! Coach House is perfectly located for the Cliffs of Moher- 5 minute drive away and we also found the Coach House a good base for our many driving tours/ visits. We went to Connemara- quite a way but stunning and well worth it- the Ocean Road, Nags Head, Ennis etc etc. We had a good idea of the things we wanted to do before we arrived however found the information pack kept at the Coach House also really useful for ideas of things to do etc, including some maps. Another really nice touch. All in all I'd say a lovely scenic village, some lovely views from the Coach House, a good location and a very clean and hospitable environment. Sara and Steve made it very clear we could contact them should we experience any difficulties or if we wanted any local advice/ suggestions. We would go back. Well done Steve and Sara and thank you!

"An excellent getaway holiday!!"
We went to go to Shannon to begin a new relationship and this experience could not have turned out better for us. We are so thankful that Steve and Sara could be part of the start of our life together! The location is great being within an hour of Shannon airport and right near the water and great pubs. It was truly a beautiful stay in the area with the land being so green. And the Cliffs were just majestic and a short walk from the Coach House. The proprietors Steve and Sara could not have been more friendly and helpful. They helped to arrange our transportation to and from the airport. They even offered on several occasions to take us to nearby towns for shopping and sightseeing. In fact, on our first day we discovered that a glass jar had broken in one of our bags leaking sauce on most of the clothes in that bag. We asked where to get the clothes cleaned and Sara graciously offered her washer and dryer for our use. They were outstanding!! Later that same day she brought over the most amazing loaf of bread to us hot out of the oven. We rationed it for days because it was incredible! We would highly recommend this as a destination and there are not better people to be staying near. It is like having friends nearby! And so of course, we had to make a point to drink a pint or three with them. We look forward to our many trips back over the years and we will always choose the Coach House!! Thank you guys for making our Ireland experience unforgettable!!

"Very friendly hosts, nice and cosy house! Very recommendable!"
We were quite late booking, so we went for The Coach House because of its brilliant reviews - and it turned out, this house is a lucky strike! Although we arrived hours later than we had planned, Steve and Sara welcomed us very warmly and a loaf of fresh bread and some Irish butter were waiting for us in the kitchen. The house exceeded our expectations by far! The two sleeping rooms, as well as the living room, are clean and lovingly equipped, the kitchen offers anything you might need for cooking. A folder with useful information about possible activities in the area helped us to organise our day trips. All in all, we felt comfortable right away and didn't really want to leave after our four nights stay. Next time we will be in this corner of Ireland, we will certainly contact Steve and Sara again!

"An excellent Holiday"
A perfect tranquil hideaway in a beautiful coastal location in one of Irelands prettiest Counties. We arrived to a friendly welcome by the owners and the smell of a home baked loaf made especially for us. We had our own space and privacy but local information, ideas and recommendations were always available from out hosts. The house was comfortable and very well equipped, a lovely mixture of the artistic and the practical. Plenty of choices of pubs and restaurants in the village as well as a gourmet fish and chip shop – the best fish and chips we have ever tasted. It’s a great location for touring the Burren, Cliffs of Moher and the idyllic County Clare countryside. We stayed for a week in July and had a ball. We will be back.
