Mullaghmore

The holiday home is located near Tubber in the Northeast of The Burren in Co.Clare overlooking Mullaghmore and the surrounding Burren landscape. To the South lies Corofin, noted for its traditional music pubs and an angler’s paradise surrounded by lakes including the picturesque Lake Inchiquinn. Splendid Dysert O’Dea Castle is only a couple of minutes from Corofin.

Mullaghmore mountain - the sublimely beautiful heart of The Burren - is only a couple of minutes from the house. Geological evolution over millions of years has arranged this landscape in such a way that today it is recognized as one of the most distinctive landscapes in Europe. The region is of outstanding significance also in terms of wildflowers Arctic/Alpine/Mediterranean flowers growing side by side. Find an overview of the Mullaghmore walking trails here, or download a map here. The green roads in The Burren region are also the perfect way to explore the area and its hidden secrets on foot!

Mullaghmore

15 Minutes away to the North is Gort with supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and cafés. Designed by Ryder Cup star, Christy O' Connor Junior, and officially opened in August 1996, Gort Golf Club is an 18 Hole Championship Golf Course, set in 160 acres of picturesque parkland. The course lies within 200 yards of the historic monastic settlement of Kilmacduagh, beautifully situated against the backdrop of The Burren. The collection of church ruins is considered to be one the finest in Ireland and originates from a monastery founded by St.Colman in the 6th century. The round tower is one of the largest and best preserved in the country, with a height of 34 mtrs.

A couple of minutes from Gort is Coole Park, the former home of Augusta Lady Gregory and a one-time centre of the Irish Literary Revival. It was a favourite haunt for the Irish poet W.B.Yeats. The house was demolished but an autograph tree inscribed with the initials of George Bernard Shaw, Yeats and many others still remains in the park, which is now a natural reserve with forest walks and lakes. Yeats himself lived at the Castle of Thoor in Ballylee, about 6kms from Coole Park. This castle has been restored and contains a museum.

20 minutes away is the small stone harbour of Kinvara (sometimes spelt Kinvarra) which sits at the southeastern corner of Galway Bay. The charming village is filled with vividly painted buildings. Dunguaire Castle (Irish: Dún Guaire), a towerhouse of the Ó hEidhin (O Hynes) clan, is located to the east of the village.

Certainly The Burren is the main feature of the area but there are many other sights worth a visit: Poulnabrone Dolmen, Ailwee Cave, the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands which can be reached by boat from Doolin or from Galway. This lively city does not only attract through its shopping centres but also through the cultural activities, the cathedral and - last not least - through the Galway Horse Races. It also the gateway to the romantic wilderness of Connemara.
