What you will love about this home
We have a lovely, private, 4 bedroom detached family home, situated in a small peaceful village near the west coast of Co. Clare.
On the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen/diner that runs into the sunroom, a separate living /TV room, entrance hall, a downstairs double bedroom with ensuite, and a small WC under the stairs.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one ensuite, a single bedroom/office, an airing cupboard, and a family bathroom.
There is ample parking outside the front, and plenty of storage for bikes and other sporting equipment in secure (hidden) sheds at the side of the house.
At the back of the house is a mature south-facing garden that is a sun trap, with comfortable garden furniture to ensure you can get the best of the sun from early morning to last light in the evening.
What you will love about this neighborhood
We live in a small peaceful village, situated just off the Wild Atlantic Way, and 8km outside the historic town of Ennis.
Co. Clare is home to a number of amazing historic and natural attractions, including the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Bunratty Castle.
Our house is just 2 minutes walk from the local village shop, a family-run restaurant, and a fine example of a traditional Irish local pub!
We're lucky to be a short distance from a tonne of natural amenities, with numerous beaches, hiking trails and golf courses within less than 30 mins drive.
We also have a collection of more than 200 board games available for those days that you don't want to leave the house (yes, it sometimes rains in Ireland), and we have Stand up Paddle Boards and buoyancy aids available for those days you want to hit the water!

The Willie Clancy Festival - Miltown Malbay
Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy is a week-long summer school in traditional music and set dance held annually at Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare.
The first and biggest of such events, it commemorates the town's best-known uilleann piper, Willie Clancy, and has been running since just after his death in 1973. The idea was initiated by Clancy himself, and implemented within six months by teacher Muiris Ó Rócháin in collaboration with CCE's timire ceoil Séamus Mac Mathúna and local musicians Martin Talty, Paddy Joe McMahon and Junior Crehan.
The school is focused around the teaching of instruments and set dancing in formal classes, but stresses the value of the oral/aural tradition.
In its fleadh-style volume of music-making in bars it has become something of a Mecca in the music, its retinue of up to a hundred and fifty teachers, and hundreds of improving and competent musicians, dancers and singers drawing in thousands of listeners.
The school addresses the cultural and intellectual side of traditional music by the inclusion of daily workshops on singing and the tradition, afternoon lectures and evening recitals. The 'Breandán Breathnach memorial lecture', given by various authorities in traditional music, opens the school, a music tribute at Clancy's grave, launch of albums and publications in traditional music follow.
Scores of impromptu sessions accompany these organised activities, nightly set dance and céilis complement a routine of morning classes given by top players on uilleann pipes, flute, tin whistle, concertina, fiddle, button accordion and set dancing. [Classes in harp, banjo and harmonica have been added in recent years.]
