Craggy Cottage beside Fanore Beach in the Burren on the Wild Atlantic Way
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews

Ideally Located Burren Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location of Craggy Cottage is simply stunning. With great views to the beach (200M) and the Hills of the Burren on the doorstep, it is a peaceful and serene place. The cottage is nice, but simply furnished and is very comfortable indeed. The upstairs lounge gives great views over the sea and the sunsets are stunning! Within easy reach of most things in this area, we found the location ideal. You get used to the fact that the ATM is 15 miles away! The kitchen was well equipped and needed nothing else in it. My only criticism is that some of it is looking tired. The shower had mould in it and could do with a deep clean. A couple of fixtures are hanging off the wall. The TV cable was faulty and we had to tape it up to make it work. It even had a VHS player still attached! These are minor points, but could turn a great place into a stunning place

Spectacular location, brilliant house.

  • 5 of 5

This place is brilliant, a perfect location for walking, cycling and wild swimming. Fanore beach is stunning and this is the closest house to it. A good kitchen if you want to cokk but the local pubs and restaurants are really good. Plenty of live music in Doolin.

Amazing Cottage, Specatacular Views, Wonderful Locals

  • 5 of 5

Cottage and the owner Joe were great. The local pub has trad music, friendly staff and great pub food only a very short drive down the road. The fish and tackle shop is great. Rent a pole and go out and fish for Mackerel and Pollock. Having a full Kitchen is fantastic when on holiday and can't beat being able to fry up fresh fish. The upstairs living room is the best part of the house with views of the ocean and beautiful coastline. We were able to easily get to Doolin for Ferry to Aran Islands, hike of the cliffs of Moher, hike Croagh Patrick, and tour Connemara all from this location with ease. Don't miss out on this place!

My daughters and I really enjoyed our stay @ Craggy Cottage. Lots of room and a beautiful view every morning. Joe was very attentive to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Would recommend Craggy Cottage for exploring the west coast for sure.

Beautiful home in an impressive landscape

  • 5 of 5

Incredibly beautiful....this gives our vacation apt description .

The house is very comfortable and clean. It's like "coming home". The kitchen is completely equipped. Even the most mundane things for cooking are available.

The house is next to Fanore Beach. Where we went everyevening after an impressive day (at the cliffs of moher, at Tullamore Dew, at Doolin......) to let the day fade away. The house gives you a good starting point for your excursions.

Having a car is recommended.

Thank you, Joe and Rena, for allowing us to be in this wonderful place.

We are sure to come back again!

Outstanding, even better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

We were met by the owner, Joe Casey, who kindly explained the use of all aspects of the cottage. He also supplied us with some unexpected food and supplies. The cottage is positioned with an unobstructed view of the "Wild Atlantic" Ocean.

The cottage was clean and well supplied leaving nothing to chance. We look forward to returning to this very location and will recommend it to anyone interested in a great and relaxing stay on the west coast of Ireland.
