Our home

WE ARE LOOKING TO GO ON HOLIDAY DURING OUR OCTOBER BREAK 26 OCTOBER to NOVEMBER 3 .Our house is available the first two weeks in July as well as in October.Our home is a 3 bedroomed Terraced houselocated in a fishing village called Kinvara which is set along the west coast of Ireland.Kinvara is recognised one of the most beautiful villages along the wild Atlantic way.Kinvara is a traditional fishing village with a number of restaurants and old style Irish pubs.Traditional Irish music is played weekly
.The medieval Dunguaire castle hosts banquets throughout the summer monthsThere is a pier and beach nearby to go fishing,swimming, and walking.
Kinvara is beside world famous attractions like the Burren and Cliffs of Moher both world UNESCO world heritage site.
The name Burren comes from the Gaelic, it means 'a rocky place'. The burren is an area 252sq km which stretches from north claret to south Galway .It borders the towns of Doolin, Ballyvaughan Kilfenora, Gort and Kinvara.
The Burren is a carboniferous limestone landscape which was laid down 320 millions of years ago when a shallow warm sea covered Ireland, during this time marine plants and animals died and began accumulating in horizontal beds on the sea floor.There are many cycling,walking and hiking trails,for the more adventurousness there is potholing and caving.
The Burren is a paradise for botanists as it has unique Flora as alpine and Mediterranean flowers exist side by side.
There is a wealth of historical attractions dating back 5000 years with each era leaving an imprint on the landscape from over 90 burial sites of the stone age to over 250 ring forts and filch fiadhs(cooking places) of the Celts , the holy wells, round towers churches and high crosses of the early Christians,castles and tower houses left by the Normans.
The landscape of the Burren depending on the time of year type of weather and even time of the day is an ever changing kaleidoscope of colours from the reflections of the sun on the limestone pavement to the vibrant green hills and valleys speckled with hazel bushes
