The cottage is just under four miles from Killimer, where ferries travel across the Shannon Estuary to Tarbert. The cottage has two bedrooms including one with a double bed an en-suite shower room, and one with twin beds. There is also a bathroom. The open plan living area is well-equipped with a kitchen, dining area seating four, and there is also a sitting area with a sofa and two arm chairs by an open fire. There is ample off road parking outside, and a shared garden to the front and rear of the cottage. A bench can be found in the front garden and guests are welcome to explore the orchard and pick some apples. Donkeys often graze in the orchard too, and are also free to roam the surrounding land. With several beaches and golf courses nearby, and County Kerry easy to reach with a 20-minute ferry ride across the estuary, Orchard Cottage is the perfect holiday base for friends and families all year.
The coastal town of Kilrush is located near the mouth of the River Shannon in the south-west of County Clare. An historic town, one of the listed Heritage Towns of Ireland, Kilrush was once an important Shannon port and is today home to a modern Marina and Heritage Centre. Take a boat trip from the marina and explore the lovely waters of the Shannon Estuary, with its many picturesque riverside towns and villages and resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins!
County Clare has so much on offer; boat trips, quirky pubs, seaside resorts and a great tradition for Irish music, all set amidst spectacular scenery such as the towering Cliffs of Moher and the fascinating landscape of The Burren.
