Warm, Cozy, Inviting home. Nestled in the quiet countryside surrounded by fields and trees. Only 1.5 mile from the local village. Large garden with lots of Trees, a very tranquil and relaxing environment.
One double room available.
Non Smokers only.


I have two lovely dogs - a very clever 8 year Border Collie who needs a long walk once a day and medicine added to her food twice a day - there are lots of walks all around the area. My other dog is a minature yorkie who is currently 15 years old and mostly just sleeps all day. I have a poochi-pouch so when you go walking you can carry him - he's light as a feather! and you can let him down for a few minutes here and there to explore etc but he cannot walk for any long distances. He's very healthy but we're just minding him now that hes getting old : ) There's a dog run attached to a building on the property that I put them in if I'm leaving the house during the day - they sleep in the house at night.

I have quiet a big garden where sections of the the grass will need to be mowed, its not a big job, but I'd like to keep it neat so it would need to be cut every few days.

It's a quiet and tranquil setting, just over one mile from the village where there's a local shop that sells all the basics and a little more. There are two larger towns nearby (10 minute drive), Scarriff and Tulla both have smaller supermarkets, fast food, pharmacies, cafes, butchers, community garden cafe etc
The neighbours are a short walk up or down the road and are all very friendly.
It's very peaceful and not too many cars pass up and down on a daily basis. The house and land are mostly surrounded by trees.
I try to buy fresh produce as much as possible to cut down on plastic wrapping. A local organic farmer has a shop not too far from our house which is stocked up everyday with fresh in-season vegetables, teas and fruit all at great prices!
Regarding the rubbish/trash/recycling you produce, there is a local drop off centre that charges a small fee by the bag for general waste and also for recycling. There is also a local bottle bank where you deposit any glass jars or bottles free of charge. I usually try to make those trips once a week so no rubbish bags are left outside around the house.
There is a holy well across the road tucked away a little of the road. Mostly surrounded by farms so there will be cows in the surrounding fields. We've a red squirrel who lives in one of the trees and a fox couple who are regular visitors to our garden as well as rabbits & hares, lots and lots of all types of birds and pheasant families too - really its just all wonderful and we're so very lucky to be living here!

Lots of Tourist spots in Co Clare - in East Clare where our house is, is the one of the centre points for Traditional Irish Music in East Clare, there are lots of sessions happening every weekend in most of the towns and villages nearby.
We are very close to Lough Gur which has many tourist and historic spots to explore.
Also west Clare isnt too far away with its fabulous beaches and also of course the Cliffs of Moher being a massive NOT TO BE MISSED attraction.
Ennis, Limerick and Galway are not far and have lots of shops, markets, museums, cultural spots to explore.
