About our home

Featured in several interiors magazines in 2015, this house was designed by award winning Swiss Architect Jean Claude Girard. It is a renovated farmhouse with a unique modern twist. Located on the crest of a hill 25 miles from Shannon Airport and only 2 miles from the coast & beach, it has a sense of peace and calm that only good architecture & a wonderful location can bring.
The concept of the house was always to be a place of sanctuary, away from the bustle of city life, and it does that beautifully. If the weather will allow, it can sometimes feel like the south of France on the terrace. The Irish weather however usually does not comply, so for that reason the house was designed to meld inside and out together.
The living area is dominated by two of the biggest domestic windows in Ireland, allowing you to fee as if you are right in the middle of nature no matter what the weather. You can watch hares, and Pheasant pass only meters from the window. Best of all you can watch the sun go down right in the living room.
This "Exquisite Isolation" however is an illusion. The house is located only 10 minutes from the town of Kilrush, which has all the necessary shopping, including Tesco & Aldi. Furthermore its served by a Farmers Market on Thursday and has wonderful local butchers & Bakers & fishmongers. For golfers, the world renowned Doonbeg Trump International Golf course is only 10 minutes away as it Doughmore beach a haven for surfers. This is a great base to spend some time in County Clare all the key attractions like the Cliffs of Moher, Willie Clancy Week, Bunratty Castle, The Burren, Lahinch, are all within less than an hours drive. Furthermore the nearby village of Cooraclare has 3 of the best pubs in County Clare, but I might be biased.
The house has an open GAS fire and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. Upstairs the bedrooms and bathrooms are served with wall heaters digitally controllable. The House does not have Cable TV or any televisions. However you can stream media no problem using our projector from an IPAD or PC. But vegging in front of the TV in a bedroom won't be possible here.
