Countryside Cottage with style!
Within walking distance of Bally Vaughan shopping, we found this lovely cottage spotless and very comfortable. The well appointed, eat-in kitchen made breakfast a snap. Our favorite part was taking coffee in the morning with a visit by the neighbor's cows. They would walk up to the stone wall behind the cottage and look in at us, as if to say "Good Morning", and then wander away eating the grass. Lots of song birds and wildflowers in bloom made for a lovely stay. Thank you, Marie!

Lovely, peaceful stay in excellent accommodation
What a lovely property and host. Possibly the cleanest,most well equipped house we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Everything you could possibly need topped off with a fantastic welcome gift, which included the all important tea and biccies. Nicely situated on the edge of the village so lovely and quiet but within very short walking distance of local pubs, restaurants and cafe. A real treat . We had a lovely time here and will definitely book again

Perfect spot
A lovely clean, neat, quiet and peaceful house, with a view from the living room of fields and nearby limestone hills, yet within minutes of Ballyvaughan for local shops and restaurants. Walks from the door (first 200ms on the main road) to quiet farmland and after a couple of miles Ailwee Cave - lunch and back home! Great central spot for touring any part of the Burren. Third visit and no doubt more to follow. Highly recommended.

A very enjoyable and educational holiday.
We enjoyed a family holiday in this very comfortable, clean and well equipped home. There is an outside area with garden furniture to relax in and enjoy the view and also off road parking. The owner Marie is very friendly and can inform you about the village and places of interest to visit. She kindly left us with some home made scones/jam, a bottle of wine, smoked salmon and soda bread. What a welcome ! The cottage is a few minutes walk to the local Spar convenience store and souvenir shop with tourist information. A few minutes walk around the corner and you will see the sea. There are several bars and restaurants in this small village and also a village hall where there is a farmer's market on Saturdays and a craft sale on Sundays. Pop in and meet the locals. There is always a warm welcome to enjoy. I would recommend Monk's at the Pier for the excellent menu. Enjoy sitting outside with a view of the sea. You may enjoy some lively Irish music in some of the bars. We had such a wonderful holiday enjoying the panoramic views along the Wild Atlantic Way, the Burren and especially the Ring of Kerry. Orchard cottage was a fantastic base for our touring holiday.

Suberb accommodation in an ideal location
Well equipped, bright, beautifully furnished, comfortable house, a short walk from the village. Perfect location for a Burren holiday and the wine, brown bread, cheese and smoked salmon were a lovely bonus! Can't wait to make a return visit.

Excellent in every way.
The house was perfect, so clean and bright with lovely furnishings. The owner had thought of everything and we really appreciated the welcome pack of locally smoked salmon, butter, milk, tea, brown bread - and fresh scones which she replenished during the week! We loved being just a short walk away from the village which was so picturesque and had excellent eating places. The walks and scenic drives were most enjoyable - even the Ailwee Caves being within walking distance on a most peaceful road track with some of the very special Burren flowers to be seen along the way. Flaggy Shore was another special place. All in all definitely to be recommended.
