Great Place in a quaint town
This is a great property. We had ten people and we stayed 3 nights, during the first week of March. It has very generous bedrooms and bathrooms. The view is outstanding.
We had been traveling all day so we unfortunately never met Seamus in person. However, we talked through messages and text. He was kind enough to go to the house before we got there on a rainy night and warmed it up. He had music on and both fireplaces burning, it was a great way to walk in after a really long day.
The property is a great base for a lot of activities on the Atlantic coast. We visited Galway, Ailwee Cave, the Cliffs of Moher, and the Wild Atlantic Way on day trips. The town of Ballyvaughan is a lovely villageand Seamus’ place is a great base. If you’ve got a big party this is a great house .
Seamus’ day trip suggestions were excellent. The trip to Clifden along the Wild Atlantic Way was one of the highlights of our trip. His suggestion about Monks restaurant right down the street was also great. Their seafood chowder was spectacular.
We would enthusiastically recommend this property for any large group. It’s a winner
We spent 3 nights in this beautiful property. We were confined to the house during the red alert and we were so cosy with both stoves going.
Fantastic property and really well equipped. Spotlessly clean. Seamus and Mary were the perfect hosts
A family (8 adults & 5 children) weekend break in Mid Feb 2020.
Lisheen House provided plenty of space for all 13 of us without ever feeling crowded. The openplan kitchen, dining and family room was perfect for meal times and relaxing in front of the huge firestove either playing board games or watching a movie with the kids. The upstairs lounge with the smaller stove lent itself to quieter more relaxed atmosphere for later in the evenings - excellent. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds. There is a pub/sea food restaurant about 100m down the street at the pier, which we visited on several occasions over the 3 days. Although Storm Dennis was also visiting Clare, at the same time, we did manage visits to the Cliffs of Moher, Galway City and local walks. All in all a great time had by all at Lisheen House. Seamus Marlborough, our host, was very responsive with any requests before our visist and was friendly and welcoming on our arrival and took the time to go through all the key info regarding house facilities and local amenities.
I would definitely stay at Lisheen House again if visiting Co.Clare in the future.
Seamus was a great host. Greeted us upon arrival and thoroughly explained everything.
Great place for a large group. Wonderful floor plan, lots of room for either privacy or mingling. All the rooms are super comfortable. It was so helpful that there was a good supply of fire logs and we thoroughly enjoyed the fireplaces.
Seamus was a delightful host and very helpful. Highly recommend!
Family celebration of 5 siblings !
I must begin with Seamus - the property owner. From my first contact he was responsive to any questions in a very timely manner, both before and after our arrival. He was informative and helpful throughout our stay. It was a special treat to meet Mary his wife. The fresh baked apple tart she dropped off was delicious, The house is every thing that is described in the summary. It is located on a dead end with a couple of other homes nearby and overlooks Galway Bay and the Connemara Mountains. There were several pastures around the neighborhood filled with sheep and cattle. Very pastoral! Inside the house is roomy yet cozy . We loved the sitting room with many large windows and a fireplace for gathering in the morning and the evenings. Rainbows actually appeared on 4 different mornings. The kitchen / dining areas was comfortable and fully equipped. All 5 bedrooms with en suite were perfect for our group of 5 couples. The town of Ballyvaughn is about a ten minute walk from the house . It is an absolute delight! There were a decent variety of restaurants, pubs and shops. We visited most of them more than once. We stopped in Ennis for grocery shopping initially - selection and prices were better than the small market in town. However, we did shop the small market in Ballyvaughn as needed . We found that the quality of the meat and baked goods was very good and that we could find just about anything we needed. Don't miss the local Farmers Market if you are there on Saturday - the cheeses were divine. Everyone we met in the village was warm and welcoming. We felt like we became a part of the village while we were there and believe that we truly got to experience the Irish way of life.No hectic on and off the bus, prescheduled tours ,etc. We all commented that it was an absolute treat to be able to slow down and take it all in. Seamus recommended a local driver for us who provided airport transfers from Shannon Airport and several days of sightseeing. Again, the best part was that the sightseeing was at our pace. Oliver was always available.We concentrated our sightseeing to the Wild Atlantic Way , Galway , Doolin , Aran Isles and Cliffs of Moher.
I would highly recommend this property without reservation for an immersive holiday experience on the beautiful western coast of Ireland.
I was raised on a dairy farm that was unique in that we processed and packaged the milk ourselves and distributed it throughout much of County Clare. We sold that side of the business in 1998 but we still live on the farm where we now raise beef cattle. When I married my wife Mary, we built a new home on the farm and since then we totally renovated the old farm house I grew up in and started doing self catering. We now have three beautiful homes in different locations for self catering and enjoy meeting new faces all the time. We have made a lot of new friends over the years ,some of them return on a regular basis. When the opportunity arises we enjoy having a good chat over a glass of wine or a pint of Guinness with our guests. Seamus & Mary Marlborough
Owner purchased this House in 2003
Why Owner chose County Clare
When the site that this house sits on which is over one and a half acres in area came on the market in 2002, we saw an opportunity to change our lifestyle. Even though we were no longer processing milk, we were still producing it and selling it to a large processor. At this stage we needed a change and decided if we accuire the site and secure planning to build on it, we would stop milk production and concentrate on self catering. To get a site with access onto the shoreline is very unique in Ireland. We paid dearly for it , but after employing a good architect , we ended up with an excellent end product specifically designed for self catering
What makes this House unique
The best thing about this house is its location. From the moment you enter the front door , you have views of the ocean and when you stand at the front door and look out you have views of the Burren Hills. Another benefit is that it is less than a five minute walk into the picturesque village of Ballyvaughan. The house itself is a unique desigh with a great sense of space and comfort.
