The Stone House - Wild Atlantic Way

Family-friendly holiday home in Fanore
This house is truly a remarkable work of art. It was built to resemble an old stone barn and does so beautifully.

On the bottom floor there are two bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms. One bedroom has a king size bed while the other has a queen. There is a study just outside the master bedroom with a twin bed. Upstairs you will find a magnificent Great Room. At the one end there is a seating area in front of a gorgeous stone fireplace. At the other end you can sit and take in the Aran Islands, Galway Bay and breathtaking sunsets through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The second twin bed is a daybed at the end of the room with the fireplace.

In the center of the room, there is a kitchen area with an antique table that comfortably seats 12 people. Also, hidden behind the fireplace, there is a powder room. The entire house has under floor heating which is truly decadent in the cool Irish countryside.

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. Fanore is not as renowned for its surfing but does have 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 Doolin has many incredible restaurants and a fabulous craft store just down the road from the church (The Doolin Craft Shop). And if you need to get out of the countryside and into a city, Galway is just an hour away. It’s a wonderful city. Despite its small size you can find most anything you need there. If you’re looking for a great bottle of Irish Whiskey or an unusual bottle of wine, go to The Vineyard then stop by Sheridan’s Cheesemongers where you will find an amazing selection of cheese from around the world. But for those who wish to explore Fanore, you will find gorgeous scenic walks and some of the best angling in the country. And if you want to see things from s different angle, go horseback riding. You’ll love it.

The house is just up the road from O'Donohue's Pub, a small grocery shop and a fabulous restaurant (Vasco). All of them 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

The maximum number of guests is 8. If there are more people staying in the 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.

This house and the quaint little town were both incredible. We did not want to leave! And the bed….soooooo comfortable. We are so thankful to the hosts for sharing their amazing home- The Stone House. So tastefully decorated and the views were to die for. A special thanks to Anne for welcoming us and checking in with us during our stay. We cannot wait to go back! Highly recommended! You will not be disappointed!

A wonderful stay. Hope to be back. You can never rely on the sun in Ireland but being that close to the sea allows you to enjoy the elements and the setting, come rain or shine. Lovely pints of stout in ODonohues for the grown ups and nooks, crannies and hiding spots for the kids to explore in the garden.
