Second visit for us and had a lovely week even with ropey weather, love Fanore beach and the cottage is a great place to relax when the kids have gone to bed. Thanks for all the extra bits that make it a home from home, other highlights, garden at Burren perfumery, shells at Bishops quarter beach and Linnane's seafood bar at New Quay.

A beautiful home from home with everything provided - even binoculars and umbrellas. A fascinating area with lots to do. We spotted dolphins by chance on a visit to Loop Head Lighthouse. Hope to come again soon. Mr and Mrs Andrews, Oct 2011
