“FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in April 2017
2
people found this review helpful

We spent 4 long stays at "Shorehaven" and we always return there with the same longing and pleasure. This fully-equipped and comfortable cottage is a balcony over the sea. This is the perfect place to visit the magical Burren and the fantastic coasts of Loop Head. Mike is a mine of information about the whole county of Clare and Tina is the perfect landlady, considerate in the slightest details of your comfort. The library of the cottage is rich, useful and multilingual.
As for the daily shopping, there is a grocery-pub-post-office in Quilty and a very well-stocked "Super-Valu" at Miltown-Malbay (about 4 kms from Quilty).
We particularly appreciate the closeness of the sea, sunsets, colours, the smell of iodine, fresh air, shore-birds, seals and sea-otters which have been our daily universe during our holidays! We have been spellbound at first sight!
"Shorehaven" is the place to let our mind sailing between sky and sea!

“Shorehaven”
Reviewed 13 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Mike and Tina are excellent hosts!! The cottage was a very relaxing place to be. We had plans to explore the area but enjoyed it there so much we spent one day just hanging out in the sun room.
Hope to stay again one day!!

“Wonderful gem in Ireland!”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was the absolute cat's meow! Seeing the pictures in this site makes me "homesick" for it now that I'm home. Tena and Mike are excellent hosts. This cottage has everything and anything you could need or want. One day we stayed in just to enjoy the ocean, rest and re-energize before hitting the sight-seeing road again and it was just perfect!

“Cosy and welcoming with dramatic sea views.”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just back from a refreshing and relaxing break at Shorehaven, Quilty. We arrived to find Mike waiting for us with the heat turned on and a
warm fire blazing in the living room. A welcoming basket of wine, bread and cheese stood on the kitchen counter beside a blue pottery jug filled with bright yellow daffodils and vibrant red rose hips. We could see that Tina had been busy too! Mike discussed our itinerary with us, showed us some maps and gave us advice on routes, spots to visit and best places to eat. From the conservatory we could see the dramatic backdrop of the incoming Atlantic tide only metres away. It was hard to believe, even from Shorehaven's website, that a house could be so near the sea! We were fascinated and wanted to spend hours simply gazing at the view. The weather was wild and damp but this added to the drama of the seascape. Huge waves rolled in over the rocks, the spray gently touching our faces when we stood on the terrace. We were glad to get this opportunity to experience the wildness of Co. Clare and could only long for a return trip during the Summer. It reminded us so much of holidays we have spent in Brittany ... only better.
Tearing myself away from the fascinating view, I could not recommend the cottage itself more highly. It could not be more comfortable. Everything we needed and more was there. It was indeed a home away from home. It is minutes away from some excellent restaurants/hotels but if you feel like cooking, there are lots of pots, pans, cutlery etc .
We loved our break in West Clare, nestled in our cosy cottage in the quiet seaside village of Quilty, on the cusp of all the well known iconic tourist spots of West Clare. We were loathe to leave when our weekend came to an end.

We do our best to make the cottage as welcoming as possible so feedback is always appreciated. We look forward to your return visit and hopefully it will coincide with some sunshine. Thanks again, Mike and Tina

“Not a great choice”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

The owners are so very nice but have to be honest and give poor marks for the property. First Quilty is not exactly charming and the area of Shorehaven has perhaps seen better days. Upon arrival looked very sketchy and the home obviously a family get away as it is so cluttered and messy. We were very happy to have left after two nights. Feel bad because the owners very helpful and kind but could never recommend this house to a friend for fear of losing that friend. Perhaps we are too particular as both my husband and I along with sister and her husband prefer paying for rentals for the guests and not the well lived in second homes that are not geared to paying guests. Will say the sunsets were beautiful. Just know what you are really getting for your money.

Thank you for this review, Jane. Naturally we are sorry that Shorehaven did not fulfill your expectations. We are disappointed on a number of fronts. Firstly, this review differs substantially from your review on our guest book.Secondly, we are disappointed that you did not voice your reservations in person on your departure,but we recognise that you are entitled to change your mind in hindsight.
With over 70 positive reviews, ranging over the many websites that we advertise in, this first negative review was shattering. We set about looking at the cottage with 'fresh eyes'.
Yes,we do have a collection of teas and coffees to welcome weary travellers. There is a large 'library' of DVDs and CD's, of various genres, to help our clients relax and we do have scented candles and insence sticks. There is a collection of books and magazines of various european languages available and games and puzzles to while away a rainy hour. The cupboards contain essentials that harried travellers might possibly forget. We are sorry that your interpertation of 'cluttered...messy' clashes with our view. During our years' of world travel we have always found the clinically sparse a little too anti-septic for us. Jane, we value our client's feedback as much as you value your friends, therefore we would gratefully appreciate a detailed email of your suggestions.Your comment re.'just know what you are getting for your money' is hurtful. YOUR money got 2 nights in a self catering cottage with welcome basket and fore-mentioned 'messy' assessories for less than you would have paid for a dingy 2 star motel room. Yes, maybe your expectations were a little too high for your money's worth.
We wish you and the extended Lambert family good health and happinness. We hope that your sojourn out west to Quilty and Shorehaven did not upset your vacation unduly and hopefully you will return to Ireland, if not Shorehaven, in the future.
We are glad that you do not have issues with the sunsets as we have no control of that aspect...just yet:-)
