Location description from owner

The Province of Munster 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

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.

“Best Vacation Rental Experience That I Can Remember”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

My family and recently rented "Salty Gables" while visiting family in Ireland and I must say the pictures do not do it justice. The views from from the sunroom are spectacular. You overlook the towns of Lahinch, Miltown Malbay and rolling green hills along the Atlantic Ocean. The home is beautifully appointed with personal touches from Bert and his family. We cooked meals and enjoyed great memories with family from this home almost every night. The home is truly a sanctuary and Bert could not have been a better host. We also rented a home in the Liscannor vacation homes and although the home provided all the basics it was nothing compared to Bert's home. Liscannor is a small farming village on the West Coast of Ireland close to some amazing sites such as the Cliffs of Moher, St. Bridget's well and the Arin Islands. You have several pubs in town, Vaugh's restaurant and a great bakery. That being said if you are looking for more variety and shopping go to Lahinch or Ennistiymon, both a short drive away. I go back with family every year or two to Ireland and this will be my first choice for future stays.

“The wonderful Wild Atlantic Way!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

A wonderful introduction to the west coast of Ireland. The house is spacious, well-equipped and enjoys to-die-for views over the sea. During our stay, we regularly saw a pod of dolphins frolicking in the sea below. It was amazing to watch them in the wild, and captures the magic of the west Coast. Bert, our host, was extremely welcoming, attentive and a fantastic source of knowledge regarding things to do in the area. The Wild Atlantic Way has so many things to offer. Our favourites were visits to Ailwee Caves, Craggaunowen Castle, Doolin and possibly the best bakery in the world within walking distance of the house. Our whole holiday was wonderfully relaxing and so stress-free. Flying into Shannon Airport, meant it was only a short drive on quiet roads with stunning scenery to get to Liscannor.

“Cozy and comfortable in rather harsh weather conditions.”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

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.

“Very relaxing well appointed home for short or long stays.”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2013

The owner of the property was very helpful during our stay. We enjoyed the awesome view of the bay immediately at the end of the lot.

“Well equipped House with fabulous views”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

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 !”

Reviewed 8 May 2012

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.

“Stunning views”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2011

We stayed in Salty Gables for 2 weeks at the end of August this year. The views over Liscannor Bay are simply stunning, to wake up and be able to lie in bed and look over the sea is special! The house really is a home from home, all you could wish for. The only thing we missed were being able watch more than 4 Irish tv channels, especially with children. But that didn't deflect at all from the house. We had a fabulous holiday, we could tell the forecast by looking out over towards the Aran islands. We had beautiful sunsets in th evenings accompanied by swallows swooping and diving over the garden. We can highly recommend Egan's and Bay Fish and Clhips - but not if you're in a hurry as everything is beautifully freshly cooked!
