The Bridge House - Wild Atlantic Way

Family-friendly holiday home in Fanore
For anyone who has ever been to Ireland, you know how truly relaxing it can be. But for those of you have been to the West coast you have also experienced the true magic of this country. This house is in a remarkable location with the Aran Islands in front of you and the Burren behind. Virtually every window has a postcard view. And although the views are spectacular, the house has a warmth all its own. The moment you step in the front door, you will feel like you are home. Maybe that's why we have so many people come back year after year. Or maybe it's the truly wonderful friends we have in the area who make you feel more like family than a visitor.

Three of the rooms have king size beds with bathrooms en suite. The fourth room has two twin beds with a bathroom just outside the door. The living room has a gorgeous hand carved stone fireplace and two-story ceilings with skylights.

For those of you who wish to leave the house you will find abundant entertainment. There is a gorgeous sand beach just down the road. For the golfers in your group there is a world-class golf course just a few towns over in Lahinch. Also in Lahinch you will find some of the country's best surfing. (And, although Fanore is not yet renowned for its surfing, there is a surf school every summer.) And for those of you music lovers, Doolin is just one town over and is renowned for its traditional Irish music in addition to many incredible restaurants. But for those who wish to explore Fanore, you will find amazing scenic walks and some of the best angling in the country.

The house is just up the road from O'Donohue's Pub and a small grocery shop. All are within walking distance.

**Please be aware that there is a cleaning fee to be left in Euros on your move out day and is calculated using the number of people in your party.

1-2 people: €100
3-4 people: €125
5-6 people: €150

Additional €50 per pet added to cleaning fee.

The maximum number of guests is 8. If there are more people staying in that house than your reservation specifies, you will be required to pay the cleaning fee for the number of people who stayed. If you exceed the maximum number of guests, we will hold your ENTIRE security deposit. No exceptions.

Perfect family vacation space
We stayed at the bridge house for a week at the end of August with our 2 adult children and a teenager. The space fit us beautifully as everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. The house itself is quaint and charming with breathtaking views of the water. The people at the small general store up the road couldn’t be nicer and the pub across the street was perfect for a quick meal. If you’re comfortable driving on the left side of the road and the narrow streets, there are plenty of things to see and do within a 30 minute drive. We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely return to this same house! Thank you Joan and Dierdra for your hospitality!

Lovely rustic and comfortable house
The house was very comfortable with 4 bathrooms, a good kitchen and eating area, a comfortable living room and amazing views. Close to the ferry and great pubs in Doolin, Ballyvaugn, cliffs of moher and Fanore Beach. Our teens took surfing lessons at the beach.

Beautiful Irish Country House
The Bridge House was even more beautiful in person than in the pictures! It was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. It was great for our 3-generation family trip, and we loved the beautiful, peaceful location.

From the location of the home, the views and the amount of space was perfect! We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed the local beach, walking to the pub and local convenience store, short drives to Doolin and Cliff of Moher. Just simply perfect!

Comfort and Elegance by the Fanore Beach
This property is wonderful. The furnishings are elegant, the kitchen easy to cook in and the location can't be beat. We love the quiet walks from the house down to the beach and then up and down the coast. O'Donohughe's is a perfect local pub and the shop across the street will offer many of the things you might need. Anna is a perfect property manager; easily accessible and full of great suggestions. Go to Cahill Bridge Garden! Anthony's in Doolin for dinner (the Thai clams are outstanding!) We would definitely like to stay here again!

Stunning views from a toasty house
The Bridge House was even nicer than in the photos. It's clean and spacious and cosy. Even though the wind howled at times outside we were toasty within. The beds are comfortable and the showers had great pressure and the baths were a treat. It was lovely to be able to light the fire on a dark winter's night. The kitchen was well equipped for us all to do some cooking and enjoy a meal around a large table. There were plenty of comfy of chairs for us to nestle down and read in. The only thing to be aware of is it is an open plan house so there is no soundproofing in the main areas. We loved the high ceilings and sense of space though and the bedrooms are spacious with stunning views out over the sea. For a winter's break it was a real pleasure of a house to be in. We stocked up well before we arrived as we knew the big grocery stores were 30 - 40 mins away by car but the local shop is an easy walk away as is the pub. It wasn't open when we arrived but did open for a spell around New Years. Fanore Beach is stunning. We also enjoyed walking to the cliffs of Moher from Doolin and hiking over the Burren. The scenery in the area is spectacular as is the ever-changing light. Our hosts were really accommodating. We had a tripped switch at one stage and Anna got it sorted immediately, even though it was New Years Eve. So thank you to our hosts and we would recommend it as a stay.

Excellent stay at Fanore
Bridge House is fantastic accommodation in a beautiful area. The house was spotless, facilities excellent. The bedrooms were very comfortable, each with their own character. Anna was really helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks Deidre and Joan.
