Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Wonderful cottage in rural location
We had a wonderful week at Brook Cottage. It is perfectly situated near the irish westcoast and the famous Cliffs of Moher. Lots of things to see and do close to the cottage. Thanks Margaret for the delicous scones & jam on our late arrival! We can highly recommend this lovely cottage, it is fitted with everyhing you could need, beds are very comfy, WiFi worked perfect too (inside the house😉) I hope we will be back soon! Warm regards, Sonja

Quiet and beautiful!
We loved every minute in Kilfenora and Brook cottage! What a lovely place to spend your time. The cottage has everything it needs to take a break from the hustle of every-day life. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are comfy, there is a washing- machine and a dryer - great for a family vacation! And lots to do nearby. Great hiking trails in the Burren, beach in Lahinch, Ailwee Cave, the Dolmen ... And thanks to Margaret for the warm welcome with Scones and Jam!

Great family holiday home
Great house in a remote rural location. House comes with all linens, cleaning products and all kitchen equipment- a home away from home. The house is very well kept and immaculate. Margaret and PJ are lovely and couldn't be more helpful. Kilfenora is largely closed down due to Covid but other nearby towns have great outdoor dining options. House is very well located as a base to tour Clare or to just relax. Mobile phone coverage is poor which may be an issue for some!

Exceptionally well kept, clean and renovated cottage. It is in the perfect location for everywhere on our itinerary.
The cottage was located in a very quite area so it was very peaceful. At the same time it was very close to all places that we wanted to visit - the Cliffs, Fanore and Lahinch beach, the Aran Islands, the Burren etc. Our 2 boys loved the cottage especially the stream and the wooden bridge. As the weather was excellent the week that we stayed it was idyllic. The hosts Margaret and PJ were excellent and provided us with everything including a BBQ and outside stove. We would stay here again as we had an excellent holiday in Co. Clare.

Exceptional
This really is an exceptional rental house. It is well equipped, comfortably furnished and immaculately clean. Response from Margaret to our initial query was very prompt and she and PJ gave us a warm welcome. It is in a very peaceful, rural location and only minutes from the village and a short drive to larger towns. We would highly recommend it and look forward to a return visit.

Just back from a very enjoyable break at Brook Cottage it is a beautifully very well restored clean country cottage. Margaret and her husband PJ met us on our arrival and departure and we're available for anything we needed . The cottage is in the perfect location to explore the local well known town's. The house is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. One of the best rentals we have stayed to date. Lahinch Lisdoonvarna Doolin all within easy reach of the cottage. Thank you both for having us.

Relaxing cottage stay
Brook Cottage was such a relaxing, peaceful getaway. Everything was super clean and tidy, and we enjoyed watching the cows outside our windows! Margaret and PJ were super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect for getting away from it all
The cottage was well kept and comfortable and the location was ideal for exploring the Clare beaches and the Burren. The kids really enjoyed it, and enjoyed meeting the neighbours - a donkey and pony. The hosts were also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
