Guest Reviews

This is a spectacular property finished to a very high standard with every possible convenience. Stunning views across the bay. Comfortable beds and beautifully decorated. We had a wonderful week with family. Mary was a very attentive host and was always available to answer any query. The kitchen is well equipped and everything was in excellent condition. I cannot recommend this property enough for anyone who wants to stay in Kilkee with added luxury.

Mary September 2016

We had the pleasure of spending three nights in Mary’s cliff side cottage. I traveled with my two children, husband and a family friend. There was more than enough space for all of us. While the view is definitely the highlight of the cottage, the cottage is in impeccable condition with great care taken to every detail. The cottage is so beautiful and comfortable we did not want to leave.

The cottage is located in a nice quiet area and is one of two houses located right on the shore. From the cottage it is a short walk to downtown Kilkee and Kilkee beach. We also enjoyed a longer walk to the magnificent cliffs of the Clare Coast. Mary is a generous and gracious host. Before our arrival she sent a list of recommended activities for the area based on our interests. Upon our arrival, Mary greeted us at the cottage and walked through the well documented instructions. She stocked the cottage with treats to eat and drink and she even made a delicious loaf of Guinness Bread. We arrived in the evening with no plans for dinner and Mary quickly called and arranged for a delicious dinner at Murphy Blacks. Mary made us feel completely welcome! If you have the opportunity to stay at Mary’s cottage, I would highly recommend it.

The perfect cozy cottage

We had an amazing time at the cottage. The owners have done an amazing job with all the interiors and the colors as well. We all had the impression that a lot of love went into this home and we truly felt like we were staying in the best place around here. We felt very welcome from the start and they even managed to have a highchair and a cot there and also went to the trouble of buying a sleeping bag for our son. That was very much appreciated. We found everything we needed, the beds were super comfortable and there really wasn’t anything we were missing. There were flyers and lots of information about things to do around the area and we all very much enjoyed being so close to the beach. The week definitely went by too fast and we would happily have stayed longer.
