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
7-8 people: €175

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.

Absolutely loved it!
This cottage was exactly what we were looking for! The views and atmosphere were amazing! There is no tv but we did not miss it at all enjoying the lovely fireplace, conversation, games and coziness instead. Easy access to the Cliffs of Moher and Doolin - a charming nearby village.

Even better in person!
I stayed at The Bridge House with friends and a friend’s little one and we had a fantastic stay! It was exactly what we were looking for and more. We loved the fireplace, the fact that everyone had their own bathroom and space and we appreciated all of Deirdre & Joan’s suggestions. We put many to good use. Anna was very helpful at check-in and we knew she was nearby if anything came up during our stay. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, it was just as we hoped it would be!

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!
