Fabulous cliff side cottage
We booked Cliff Cottage in Kilkee, County Clare, for a family birthday celebration in May 2018. We flew into Shannon Airport, hired a car and drove the short distance to Kilkee. On arrival we parked up in the space provided outside the front door and were greeted by the delightful and welcoming owners of the cottage who showed us around the property – and what a property it is!
The cottage is a pleasant enough addition to its street scene but it keeps its real secrets for the bay side of the house. Three enormous windows permit the large living room and kitchen area unparalleled views over the stunning bay at Kilkee. These windows leave the living room wonderfully bright and airy and it was a real delight, whether eating a meal or relaxing in the comfortable armchairs or sofa, to have such a stunning panorama to enjoy. Bay views are further enhanced by the existence of a large patio that stretches from the windows to the harbour rock formations themselves. As with the rest of the house the proprietors have thought of pretty much everything and chairs and table are available for sitting out on the patio in good weather.
We spent a week at the cottage and at no point did we identify anything additional by way of equipment that we needed in the kitchen. The owners seemed to have thought of everything and their welcome pack of goodies was much appreciated. All the kitchen equipment was great quality, modern and, as with the house in general, spotlessly clean.
The cottage is wonderfully well appointed and equipped with high quality, modern, appliances. It is stylishly decorated throughout in pastel tones. The living room and kitchen form the natural hub for the house with bedrooms and most bathrooms reached by an interconnected, naturally lit, passageway.
In keeping with the rest of the house the bedrooms are very comfortable with those on the bay side again having great views over the town and harbour. The bathrooms are similarly well appointed and equipped and, as with the rest of the house decorated in a modern and attractive manner.
The owners made themselves available if we needed them and always responded quickly to any messages we sent or requests we had.
All in all, Cliff Cottage played an absolutely central part in our enjoying a great week’s holiday in the lovely town of Kilkee in beautiful County Clare.
