“Wonderful Wonderful Dangan Lodge Cottages!”
Reviewed 15 February 2009

In Summer 2007, my two siblings and I took our mom to Ireland for her eightieth birthday. We stayed at Dangan Lodge Cottages (in County Clare) for one week, after spending time in Dublin. We booked through RCI, and were absolutely thrilled by the charm of Dangan Lodge Cottages. We were very comfortable during our stay and the manager/staff were very helpful.

The location is good for day excursions in southern and western Ireland. We visited Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Dingle Peninsula, Cork on separate days, coming back to Dangan each night to sleep. The Dingle trip was a long day, but was doable. To stay at Dangan, it is essential to have access to a car, because it is located in the middle of the countryside.

Ennis is a small city with local charm, restaurants/pubs, internet cafes, and is only ~8-10 miles away. We grocery shopped in the nearby town of Tulla (~2 miles), and enjoyed breakfasts in our cottage, and also some of our lunches/dinners on bread, cheese, deli meats, and of course, the Guinness beer! We enjoyed local sightseeing in Ennis, as well as Knappogue and Craggaunowen castles, both of which were only ~5-10 minutes away.

Our cottage had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large living area with kitchen (with washing machine and dryer). The washer/dryer helped a lot with minimizing our luggage (we only brought enough clothes to fit in a carry-on bag for each of us), but do not operate as efficiently as ours in the USA. The capacity is smallfor both the washer and the dryer, and the time to cycle through is long! So, if you are traveling light, you have to plan accordingly and start washing small loads of laundry throughout your week-long stay at Dangan.

We loved our stay at Dangan Lodge Cottages. It was a perfect place for our family while we enjoyed the country of Ireland.

My sister, best friend and I took a trip to Ireland over St. Patrick's Day 2008. We booked accomodation through RCI with Dangan Lodge Cottages in East County Clare. The cottage was fantastic. It was in the countryside and the scenery was extremely beautiful even though we weren't there in "high season".

From the time we booked the owner/manager Gina Sivyer was very helpful. She allowed us to vary from the RCI policy and let us rent from Friday to Friday vs. the standard Saturday to Saturday term. Gina met us at the cottages upon our arrival and gave us everything we'd need immediately (as we were nothing short of exhausted after a transatlantic flight, etc.). She left us with detailed driving directions to get from the cottage to neighboring villages with pubs, stores, and supplies.

We had a two bedroom cottage with two baths and a large kitchen, dining room and beautiful stone fireplace. Plenty of room for three adult women. Everything in the cottage met our American expectations for comfort--plenty of hot water, heat, modern appliances and parking. The only complaint we had was that there was no phone in the cottage itself. There is a payphone in a booth on the property but there were a few days that the phone was out of order and it got cold trying to call family back home. Also, I would say that you shouldn't even try staying at this cottage unless you've rented a vehicle for the duration of your stay. It is remote (part of it's charm) and is not a walkable distance from things you would need.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Dangan Lodge Cottages. A big thanks to Gina and her staff. It was a perfect base for us to make daytrips to the West Coast of Ireland!
