Fermoyle Cottage is situated beside Fermoyle Farmhouse in an idyllic, little green oasis surrounded by the spectacular Karst Scenery so characteristic of The Burren, or Na Bóirne, Place of Stones in Irish. The house is a spacious bungalow, with three spacious bedrooms and a very nice family bathroom with a corner bath. I loved the bath. The dual aspect master bedroom had an ensuite and a dressing room. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could want should you wish to eat in. We went out most evenings, there are plenty of places around but you needed to drive to restaurants and the supermarket.There was a lovely triple aspect living room with a television, books, videos and toys for young children. There is a beautiful beach in a sheltered little cove within walking distance. On a warm summer's day, the water is warm and gorgeous to swim in. There is also a surf school if you are feeling energetic and surf boards and wet gear are for hire at reasonable cost. Lots of fun rock pools for the kiddies. There are lots of other available activities in the area within an hour's drive. We went on a day trip to the Aran Islands and hired bikes and had a really fun afternoon cycling around and taking lovely photos. There is a sheep farm in Caherconnell with very impressive sheepdog demonstrations, the dogs were very sweet and really lovely with the children who were there. The Aillwee Cave and its history is very interesting as is Caherconnell Fort. The Cliffs of Moher is a lovely day out with some really nice shops and a cafe. The people of Clare have a long history, which they can trace back to at least 5000BC. They are friendly, warm and welcoming. My husband, myself and family had a really lovely, memorable family holiday in their midst.

If you are looking for peace and quiet out in the country side, this quaint country cottage style of accommodations is for you. The owners are amazing and very accommodating. There is plenty of great sites to see: Cliffs of Moher, Poulnabrone landmark portal thumb and the countryside charm. The lodging is Spectacular: warm, clean, comfortable and affordable - all out in the Irish countryside- plenty of fresh air. There is short and long term accomadations depending on your needs ( schooling)! Easy in and out. Absolutely loved it here and will return! Thank you!

Ok, this is not airbnb so I assume I'm allowed to express my own opinion here. To be clear, we stayed in Fermoyle Farmhouse, which is only one of the 4 self-catering options on offer. Let's start with the welcome - there wasn't one. One receives messages and instructions via airbnb before one arrives. Once you have entered the cottage one is then 'met' by a type of tablet on which you check in (and out) and can communicate with the outside world. ("This is Major Tom to ground control..." ) Getting the picture? All much too sterile and impersonal for my liking. On to the cottage itself. It was spotless - so a big thumbs up to the cleaners - although the ash collector from the wood fire hadn't been emptied in a while. The whole place has been well renovated and has a cosy, if slightly 'bunkered down', feel to it. The highlight is the master bedroom; it's quite large and has a lovely high ceiling which, of course, gives it a light and airy feeling. The bathrooms are perfectly fine, however, one can't help but notice that a fairly loud water pump comes on when one uses them. My son, who slept in the smallest of the three bedrooms, says he was woken by the sound of the pump during the night. The kitchen is tiny but functional. We did appreciate that the proprietor had stocked the kitchen with a litre of milk and other food basics including breakfast cereal etc - a nice touch we thought. The eating/living area is charmingly decorated but really quite cramped. Really good coffee comes from a strangely positioned capsule coffee maker. It sits in the middle of this area on top of a low bookcase! Weird! Reminded me of my days working in an open-plan office. (Oh, and don't trip over the extension cord when you walk in the front door!) When we went on a long walk that started at the end of the road to the property, we discovered the cottage that we probably should have booked. It's another one in the Fermoyle portfolio. I had a peek through the window. It's big. It's spacious. It has biggish windows which have actual views. It has a big outside area where one could sit or frolic and the kids could play. We made the mistake of going for the 'charming', renovated farmhouse (and had to put up with its drawbacks), instead of opting for the somewhat less charming but probably much more liveable newly-built(?) cottage. C'est la vie. Although, if I really did go back to this area I would actually prefer to stay somewhere on the coast and in a cottage/house with a view of the sea!

We loved this place. We each had our own comfy warm room, 2 single ladies( Mom and Auntie) and a young couple. Many walks in the surrounding area...so beautiful......very near the ocean if you wanted a longer walk...... situated in "The Burren"...interesting rock formations everywhere.

Booked this beautiful accommodation through booking.com for a New Year visit away from home and to say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Regular contact from Jessica before our stay and arrived safely on Dec 30 th as a family of 7 . We had the cottage (absolutely adorable ) and a double room booked in the farmhouse . Both accommodations were cosy and quaint and we were made to feel straight at home ....although our home isn’t located on the picturesque Atlantic way coast road . Spent time in Doolin as recommended by the owners had a great meal at Maganns bar on our first night along with a good old Pint of the black stuff in the only local pub in Fanore Odonnahues ( landlord really friendly ) Explored the coastline and visited the Cliffs of Moher about 30-40 Mins away by car ( this is a must do ) breathtaking scenery on New Year’s Day . Returning back to our cottage was always a delight in the evening after a day of exploring relaxing in front of the log burner . My only disappointment is I can’t seem to find the accommodation available again to rebook . Highly recommended and eager to return:) Thank you for an amazing start to 2018

The Fermoyle Farmhouse was probably the bed & breakfast accommodation we liked most during our 10-day visit of Ireland. Unlike what other have reported we had no problem whatsoever finding the Farmhouse, the route is well-signed. The Farmhouse is charmingly, peacefully and somewhat remotely located in the Burren, step out of the door and you can make magnificent walks and enjoy the highly interesting, deserted karst landscape. The owners were very friendly and helpful, our room was really great, breakfast was very good. The communal space with fireplace was cosy and pleasant. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would have loved to stay somewhat longer. Literally and figuratively: a hidden gem.

Wow!!! Not only are you soaking up fabulous views and a piece of history..the hospitality shown to me was above and beyond. After very, very, very wet two day on the Burren Way…I was soaked to the bones, tired and hungry. When I finally found Fermoyle (another story), I was in heaven! A peat fire was lit for me to dry my drenched gear, Jess kindly provided me with dry pasta and sauce as I bypassed any store on my walk, tea was made and I was in heaven watching the rain and mist. The history and hospitality was second to none. My biggest complaint was I was only there for such a short, short time (I commence my walk the next day). The place is cozy and was a bit tight when the other four guests arrived. Five people in the shared areas was ok but luckily we all got along well and it was just fine. As a walker, it can be confusing to find the farmhouse. As a driver, might be a bit easier. A word of caution…be sure you know your directions before you head to there. But boy it's worth it.

Large, beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location. Very comfortable. The kitchen is fully supplied, and the house seems like it recently renovated. Jessica was very reachable, and replied our request without hesitation. We were six persons, and the place was large enough.

We used this B&B as a base for 1 night to attend the lisdoonvara matchmaking festival. The location was not ideal for the festival as it was hard to get taxis as it was about 15KM However it was worth it to stay in this fabulous B&B. It was quaint yet catered for every need including wifi. The breakfast supplied was ideal and more generous than expected. The owner was also extremely helpful. The beds and rooms were comfortable. We had a great stay and would recommend it to everyone its beautiful part of the country where everyone should visit.

We stayed in Fermoyle Cottage for three nights in May and found it to be extremely comfortable. Fermoyle Cottage is a newish self catering cottage several klm's from Fermoyle Farmhouse. The cottage is set amongst farm fields and is very quiet. It is very well appointed with excellent WiFi and Jessica went to no end of trouble for us to ensure bedding was as we required. It has three bedrooms, two are ensuite with baths and separate shower stalls and there is a third bathroom as well with a shower. The beds in the ensuite rooms are what we would call standard doubles with two single beds in the third room. There is a living room with sofa and chairs. The only negative comment is that the blinds in the main bedrooms are white and do let a fair amount of light in. Some heavier curtains would be a great advantage. Given the opportunity we would certainly stay at Fermoyle Cottage again
