“We had a wonderful week in Ballyvaughan Co Clare in June. The house was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed. It is in a very pretty setting and has the most wonderful views from the windows overlooking the bay and surrounding countryside. Our week there gave us time to explore Co Clare and surrounding regions in a relaxed and unhurried way and enjoy the friendly locals and their way of life. We found Marie and Lorcan very hospitable and helpful. They left our home in perfect order and were a pleasure to exchange with. If you love history, stunning natural environment and a gentle pace of life this is the exchange for you.”

Where is it?
Our house is located in a peaceful setting looking westwards across the shores of Galway Bay, within walking distance (1.2km) of picturesque Ballyvaughan village and 500m from Bishop's Quarter beach. Ballyvaughan is one of the most vibrant villages in Ireland's Burren Region, a picturesque seaside village overlooking Galway Bay to the front with the stunning Burren mountains to the rear. Ballyvaughan is located on the Wild Atlantic Way, a world-famous coastal route that includes the renowned Cliffs of Moher (www.wildatlanticway.com). The property is 45kms from Galway city with a full range of amenities and attractions for visitors.
The Burren Region has been a centre for famous Celtic artists and poets. From traditional music to limestone caves to ocean kayaking, from golfing and fishing to prehistoric monuments and hill-trekking, Ireland's Burren Region has something for everyone. This plateau of North-West Clare is internationally famous because of its beautiful limestone landscapes and the remarkable flora of the region as well as its rich archaeological heritage. The area also hosts 70 wedge-tombs, the most famous of them being Poulnabrone, ring forts, caves and castles.
A car is recommended for full exploration of this lovely part of County Clare. We can do a car swap.
Our house is 70kms from Shannon Airport. It takes 80-90 minutes to drive from the airport to our house.
