Description

We built our dream home with all of the things that we wanted - space, light, comfort, peace, privacy, countryside. It is really a home away from home rather than holiday rental. Nestled in hazel woods, our home is modern, spacious and flooded with light even in the depths of winter. Every window has a view of trees, mountains or sky! We are set in 4 acres off a green walking road with complete peace and quiet. You can step onto the karst landscape of the Burren just steps from the house. Our house is set into a gated courtyard with private garden and south facing deck to the front of the house. There is plenty of parking in this courtyard. Sage, rosemary, lavender, thyme grow along the raised beds as you enter the house - perfect to nip out to snip for your supper!

We have recently changed one of the ensuite bathrooms to make it more accessible and it is now fully adapted for people with disability or mobility issues. Most of downstairs is wheelchair friendly including access

This house is an ideal getaway for families with young children, families with pets or indeed a romantic escape!

The house is warm and comfortable with solar panels providing heat and hot water (with gas as backup if needed). A rain water recycling system provides water throughout the house and is properly filtered so makes a wonderful cup of tea! A cedar sauna (heated by wood stove) is hidden in a ruin close to the house. Four double bedrooms (3 ensuite) offers plenty of space for family and friends. One of these bedrooms also contains a single bed and a cot.We've recently added a sofa bed in the mezzanine area as some of our visitors requested an extra sleeping space for their teenagers. This is in an open area but we find it works well for young adults!

We live in a cottage onsite so if you need us we are there, but otherwise we leave you to yourselves to enjoy the house...if you need babysitting, information on the area, tips on local restaurants or events just ask - we can even make reservations/enquiries.

You are just 2km from the small village of Ballyvaughan with its many pubs and restaurants offering great food and atmosphere. Ten minutes down the road you are at the sea, another 5 minutes brings you to the beach. Just a short drive away are the Cliffs of Moher, Lahinch for surfing and golf, the Dolmen is 10 minutes away. Aillwee Caves and the Birds of Prey Centre is a 2 minute walk away. Shannon airport is a 55 minute drive and Galway and Ennis are approximately 45 minutes by car. If you are a fan of walking and exploring the countryside you can head off into the mountains for hours just by walking out the front gate.

Location description from owner

The Burren region

Spectacular landscapes, wild Atlantic vistas, stunning sunsets on Galway Bay, long sandy beaches, surfing hot spots, swimming with a wild dolphin, discovering archaeological treasures, rock climbing, pot holing, boat trips to the Aran Islands, traditional Irish music, jaw dropping Cliffs of Moher....this area truly has something for everyone!


The Burren,Co. Clare is a marvel for walkers, and the location of the village of Ballyvaughan on Galway Bay provides ample opportunity for kayaking, swimming and fishing. Three beaches are just minutes away by car. The landscape is really stunning karst landscape and is truly magical.Writers, artists, musicians and poets have all made this area their home - this is really an inspirational place in which to live.

Ballyvaughan itself is a small village with lots of nice pubs (traditional music in a number), organic farmers market in the summer and nice restaurants (L'Arco, The Tea and Garden Rooms, The Soda Parlour, An Fulacht Fia, Gregans Castle Hotel Restaurant).

Ballyvaughan

The house is on the edge of the Burren National Park with direct access to the mountains from the driveway of the house. Considered to be Ireland's flagship heritage landscape, from flora to fauna. geology to archaeology, agriculture to community. So what do people think about when they think about the Burren? For many, it has to be the flowers. No surprise there, as the region hosts a spectacular array of over 70% of Ireland's native flora, including 22 of our 27 native orchid species and the much-loved blue gentian, compressed into what is just under 0.5% of our national land mass. This extraordinary flora supports an equally diverse fauna – from feral goats to pine martens, elegant butterflies to snake-like slow worms.For many people it's the archaeology that is of most interest in the Burren: with over 500 ring forts and over 80 known Neolithic tombs, the Burren is very well endowed in this regard, resembling &one vast memorial to bygone cultures;.For other people the main source of attraction is the landscape itself, the unique panoramas of grey that provide such a stark contrast to Ireland's proverbial &;forty shades of green. The Burren hills are teeming with such geological oddities as labyrinthine cave systems, disappearing streams and lakes, tiered hillsides and oddly dissected pavements.The Burren also has a wonderfully rich and vibrant culture, possibly captured best in the fascinating agricultural traditions that have evolved in the area over thousands of years. The physical and anecdotal evidence of this remarkable story of human interaction with a landscape still lingers in the Burren - a cultural resource of enormous significance.

“A Holiday of Luxury”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2016

What an amazing house and setting, and wonderfully friendly owners. Nothing was too much trouble. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly want, and more. Little touches around the house made us realise just how much the owners exceeded our expectations. Cannot recommend this holiday accommodation highly enough.

“Absolutely Perfect”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2015

We had a wonderful stay at this vacation rental. We traveled to Ireland to celebrate my mom's birthday and this accommodation was the perfect fit for us. It was very spacious and allowed us all to have our own space. We traveled with a six and ten year old and they loved exploring the area. There were plenty of children's games and puzzles to keep them occupied when they were winding down for the evening. The location was perfect and the town of Ballyvaughan offered so many great restaurants and shops. It was also centrally located for us to visit other areas of Ireland with minimum travel. This vacation rental was so close to the Burren which all of us were very happy about. Ciara was so wonderful to us and was always available for any questions. She also gave us excellent recommendations of things to do and restaurants. We loved this house so much and if we were to travel to Ireland again we would definitely stay here!

“An ideal place to get away from it all!”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2014

We chose to stay in Ballyvaughan, having been before, and desperate for a bit of wilderness and fresh air. We could not have found a better place. The McGraths did everything to make us feel very welcome, communication was easy and they are very charming people. The house itself is stunning, incredibly comfortable and ideal for families. it is stylish, modern, clean and just a wonderful haven of peace and tranquility. Walking boots are a must, as the Burren rocks are on your doorstep. There is plenty to see and do in the local area and just appreciating the unspoilt beauty every morning was enough to get our children out of bed and out of the door! We have every intention of coming back.
