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.

Invited Guests
During our short (but very enjoyable) stay at Killard Cottage, Aideen made us feel more like invited guests and less like paying customers - a rare quality indeed. Also, if you would like to experience the Wild Atlantic Way scenery of 'The Banshees of Inisherin (2022)', then starting your own personal journey in Doonbeg is an excellent choice.

Great place to stay
Visited this gem for a week in July- just what we needed after a frantic end of school year. Quiet with super views. Well maintained and nothing too much trouble. Would definitely go again.

Lovely Cottage, Lovely Spot
Really nice cottage, felt very at home during the trip. Very quiet location. Cosy but modern house. Great spot to explore the west coast of Clare. Very close to great surfing locations and there is a sandy beach just down the road from the house (Silver Strand). House was equipped with lots of soap and hand sanitizer which was nice and house seemed very clean when we arrived. Aideen and Jim were very helpful during our stay and were very friendly and accommodating people. We would definitely visit again. Suggestions: Would recommend WiFi password printed in info booklet A Bluetooth speaker in the house would be very nice

Perfect cottage in wonderful location
Killard Cottage is a gem My wife and I spent a week there in July . Everything was as described, or even better. Comfortable, modern and very well equipped, spotlessly clean and above all cosy . A great base for visiting Clare's spectacular coastline. Make sure to see the Burren and don't miss the cliff walks in Kilkee Doonbeg is close by with several restaurants. We ate in Morrissey's twice ( book in advance ) Major supermarkets are situated in Kilrush so self catering is easy Aideen our host was superb .Very helpful ,friendly and professional. She lives across the road so there's no issue collecting keys etc. Was there anything else we needed ..not at all . Go and enjoy!

Excellent accommodation in idyllic setting
The cottage is tastefully decorated, full of character and has all the modern comforts you would need. It has superb sea views and is ideally located to tour county Clare. I would highly recommend a stay in this cottage.

Our Favorite Cottage in Ireland
My sister and I knew we wanted to be near to ocean and in driving distance to all the beautiful sights of westcoast Ireland and that is exactly what this cottage provided. A walk to White Strand beach, and a short drive to the Cliff Walk of Kilkee. Darling cottage, wonderful hosts, beautiful views. (We especially loved being able to use the sweet fireplace and see the ocean from each of our beds! We pray we'll get to go back! (:

Delighted to welcome both of you to Killard where you had easy access to all the sights. Our solid fuel stove is very popular amongst our guests who enjoy the ambience it creates when they return to the cottage after a day's adventure. No doubt you will return some day. Best wishes Jim & Aideen

Killard, Doonbeg Co. Clare
Aideen and Jim were fantastic hosts of Killard Cottage in Doonbeg, Co. Clare. They were warm and friendly and gave us lots of information on local amenities and attractions. They responded immediately to any queries we had. The cottage was fully stocked with everything you’d have at home and was super clean too. The little touches like biscuits and logs for the fire were a real treat and it demonstrated how much our hosts wanted their guests to enjoy their stay. Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely cosy cottage. Miriam & Donal
