Eden Cottage Countryside Retreat

Family-friendly holiday home in Ennis with hot tub
Relax and unwind in an Idyllic Irish Retreat. This is the perfect traditional countryside home from which to explore Western Ireland! Eden is large yet cozy, complete with all modern amenities. Tucked on a hillside, trees dot the edges of the beautiful one-acre yard.

The Space:
Open the door. Eden Retreat wraps its arms around you from the moment you walk inside. This home is an ideal hideaway for one or more couples traveling together. It’s also a great lodging for families and friends to gather.

Eden consists of a lovely main home and detached cottage with full bathroom. A 1,000 square foot covered deck surrounds the cottage, a portion of which is covered for all-weather enjoyment.
The main house features a spacious and inviting open-plan common area with kitchen, dining area and large comfortable living room. The 40" flat-screen TV has Sky satellite service, including subscription Sport & Movie channels. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with showers in the main house.
The hot-tub cottage is a cheerful, bright space featuring an indoor hot tub encased in sandstone. The cottage has its own bathroom with shower, and may be used as a fifth bedroom on request. A full height, queen-size (and very comfortable!) air-bed will be dressed and ready on arrival should you need it.

This home is the best of both worlds. Peaceful and quiet, Eden is tucked on the outskirts of Ennis, a charming and bustling market town, and the capital of County Clare. Only 20 minutes from Shannon Airport, 30 minutes from Clare’s rugged scenic coast, and 3 minutes from the M18 motorway linking Galway & Limerick, Eden’s location is ideal for exploring the best of Western Ireland.

The stunning, peaceful ambiance of Irish nature is one step outside your back door. A custom-paved patio, perfect for parties and lounging, awaits you. Gracious sandstone walls and wooden steps lead through terraced lawns and flower gardens.

Eden welcomes children of all ages! There is an extensive wooden play set with slide and swings in the back yard.

Eden Cottage Retreat is nearby all major attractions on Ireland's stunning west coast, including: The Cliffs of Moher, Galway City, The Aran Islands, Doolin Village, Bunratty Castle, Adare Heritage Village, Cork & the Blarney Stone, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. The long sandy beach and promenade at surf-mecca Lahinch is just 30 minutes away.

And don't worry, Eden offers a speedy Wi-Fi connection!

Guest Access:
Guests will have the entire House & Hot-Tub Cottage at their disposal. Eden Retreat comfortably sleeps 9 adults.

The Neighborhood:
Eden Retreat is located 4 miles north of the town of Ennis. Ennis gets its name from the Irish word “inis” (island) because it is virtually surrounded by the River Fergus, a melodious presence throughout. The streets of Ennis are narrow and charming, with many areas pedestrianized. There are plenty of locals here—Ennis is no tourist trap—and you’ll hear voices that are raised in laughter or storytelling in bakeries and bookstores alike. The Friary at the bottom of Abbey Street was founded by the O’Briens in the 13th century. Many of its original features survive. It’s breath-taking and has a textured silence that speaks through the centuries.

Why the Owner Chose Ennis:
The main attraction in Ennis is the locals’ love of traditional Irish music. The town is renowned as a hub of 'trad' music, and musicians of the highest quality are on display in the pubs of Ennis throughout the year. It often seems that those in town who can't sing or play an instrument are very much in the minority! Ennis is located near all the best attractions in the West of Ireland including the Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Galway, Limerick, Cork, the Blarney Stone and an array of beautiful beaches.

Getting Around:
Eden Retreat is just 15 minutes from Shannon Airport, 2.5 hours from Dublin Airport.
There is ample private parking on-site.
As the house is not served by public transportation (other than taxis), having a rental car is essential.

Other Things to Note:
Electricity and Heating Oil Usage are included in listed rates

Interaction with Guests:
The owners of Eden Retreat have worked in the travel industry for 20 years, and are delighted to share their wealth of local and countrywide knowledge with guests.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, stovetops, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Eden Indeed
Our family of eight spent four wonderful days at Eden Retreat. The house is nicely appointed and equipped. We could all eat breakfast together in the dining area off of the kitchen. Our teen had her own lair in the house that has the hot tub. The yards are beautifully maintained. Moreover, the retreat is well located just North of with convenient access to West Clare and The Burren. Highly recommend.

Family week in Ennis
We had a wonderful week at the Eden Retreat in Ennis. It was a home base as we traveled to the west coast and Limerick and all around. Our kids loved the different books, toys, games and even dress up options and we loved that there was plenty of space to have down time, as well as super comfortable beds and a nice kitchen and dining area. We also loved the hot tub and the patio yard area. It was perfect for our family of 6. Would definitely return!

We took my mom for her 70th birthday, Ennis Retreat did not disappoint . The house was perfect, the views from the home were breathtaking . Quick trip into the quaint town of Ennis. Short drive to the Cliffs and about an hour to Galway . Mark is a perfect host, responds so quickly to any question. I would recommend his home to anyone looking for a little country but close enough to the pubs, cafes and restaurants . - One minor suggestion, house needs a full length mirror for us ladies to see our full outfit before going out on the town .. lol

Lovely Home for a large group
This lovely home located just 10 minutes outside of Ennis was the perfect home for our large group of 9 adults. Communication with the host was prompt. Check in was great and got late check out no problem. Home accommodated all of us with enough bathrooms as well. The guest house with the hottub was great for one of our couples. You have sheep in your backyard which is very Irish. If you are touring around the west coast this is a perfect location. Would recommend this lovely home for small or large groups. Thanks so much for everything.

We all had a wonderful stay, great for touring County Clare. The house is very cosy.
The house is everything it said it would be and more. What a lovely county to explore with rugged coastline, forest walks and tourist trails… Clare has it all. Then to have a tot-tub to come home to in the evening, sheer bliss, what more can I say.

Relaxing retreat
We booked this property in January because it had hot tub and we were planning on an Irish rainy holiday, as it turned out it came in very useful to cool down in the evenings. We were three generation family and plenty room for all. A short run to Ennis for outside dining and had many takeaways outside on the deck in the cool of the evening. The nearby lake was a great attraction for kayaking etc and Lahinch about thirty minute journey. A very enjoyable Staycation

An amazing property in an amazing location! The house looks great online but it’s the small touches in person that make it perfect! Would highly recommend and am already in the middle of booking a second stay later this year! Can’t wait to go back!
