Very Good

“Gorse Cottage exceeded my expectations.”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2017

Beautiful location with wonderful views, the house truly was a home from home with everything imaginable supplied - from cleaning products to tin foil. I had a lovely 2 weeks here, it is a beautiful rural setting, but close enough to Doolin Lisdoonvarna and Ennistymon for shops, restaurants, Spa at the Falls Hotel. 2 of our party took a day trip to the Aran Islands, we enjoyed fine dining in Sheedys Lisdoonvarna, Ballinalackin Castle and Cullinans in Doolin, some great music sessions in O'Connors Doolin and Nellies in Lisdoonvarna. House is very spacious with 2 living rooms (each with a solid fuel stove) as well as central heating. Power showers were great. 5 bedrooms (2 singles & 3 doubles) ideal for 2 families sharing. So much to do locally from walks, sightseeing, entertainment, relaxing with a good book ( reading material and music CD's supplied) - best house ever, loved it and hope to return.

Owner's reply: It was lovely to read about the good times you had in Doolin and surrounds. Cullinans in Doolin is also one of our favourite restaurants in the area. Ballinalackin Castle is great too. We haven't tried Sheedys in Lisdoonvarna but have heard it's maybe next time. Thanks for sharing some of your tips for the area. There are so many good places to eat these days that it's hard to go wrong. Hope you can all make it back again sometime soon.

“Fabulous base for exploring and enjoying the delights of Co. Clare!”

We were a family of 4 adults and 4 children who really enjoyed staying at Gorse cottage. The cottage is a stunning house and is exceptionally well equipped for a rental property. There were amble toys and books for evening entertainment for the kids. Ted was so helpful in suggesting places to go and he was soot on with all his recommendations! Thanks to Cindy for the superb directions to the property and for a great holiday in Co Clare!

Owner's reply: Really happy to hear that you had a nice stay. That's very important to us and makes it all worth while. It's a grand spot alright. Thanks so much for the kind words.

“Great house, great location.”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

House is exactly as advertised - lovely and comfortable and great location if you want to get away from it all but still only be a few minutes drive from lovely bars, restaurants etc. Plenty of space with the 5 bedrooms - we never even used the second living room with the tv because the living space off the kitchen is so comfortable! Would highly recommend.

“Lovely homely house from which to explore west and north Clare”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2012

Modern but characterful house, spacious, lots of natural light, great views to both Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands. If you're looking for a peaceful break to recharge your batteries, Gorse Cottage fits the bill. Two or three pubs close by in Doolin with good food and music as well. Get one of the local guides (we recommend Mary Howard) to show you and explain the Burren. If you're a cyclist, do the coast road to Fanore and Ballyvaughan, it's a lovely ride.
