The Old School House is a self catering property in a beautifully restored historic property. It has unrivalled views of Liscannor Bay at top of hill just before St Bridget's Well. Just two miles from the cliffs, accessible for walkers. Great place for discovering all that Clare has to offer.

The space

The unique Liscannor paving steps to the property have many tales to tell. Until the 60s it remained as a local school. Since then had been a home, hostel and more recently a recording studio (good acoustics).

Guest access

This is a self catering, self contained home. You will have use of new kitchen and dining facilities. Perfect for home dining. The front of home has a sheltered area with views of bay for morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The rear is sheltered and private ideal for barbecues. There is ample off street parking for several card.

Interaction with guests

You will have use of facilities that does require some understanding of the domestic appliances to use. We provide a manual to understand how to use them. I have an apartment next door and may be there from time to time when I am happy to share/advise. Otherwise this property suits independent travellers that enjoy a private beautiful space with modern facilities. I have included all the things I like to have when on holidays. So there are sun loungers, TV and VCR incase of poor weather and proper kitchen facilities.

Other things to note

This is an old restored building. It has been modernised with heating and insulation. It is very cosy especially with stove lit. All the same it does not heat like a modern home so if you wish to have heating running all day there is an extra charge for excessive consumption that is monitored accordingly.

I arrived on time and the host chose not to meet me but rather leave a key. This was fine except that the host accused me of having more people just because we used multiple towels and beds. It was a rainy and windy two days and we had to walk to the Cliffs of Moher in the rain. My fiancé and I are also avid runners and hikers so we didn't let the rain stop us from being active. I think the host wanted more money from us for "more people" that they suspected of being there. If you want to police the property then meet the guest upon arrival. Other than the dissatisfied text I got about the towels and linens the property was great for my fiancé and I. It's a long walk to the Cliffs and food so expect to make a trek if you are not going to be driving in to town. If you are going to the Cliffs it is free if you don't park. The parking fee isn't by car but rather by persons in the car. It's a racket so avoid it if possible. Safe travels to all!

Beautiful little old school house that has a rustic vibe, yet is outfitted with modern appliances that make your stay very comfortable. And walking distance from the Cliffs of Moher. Thanks Grellan and Stephanie!

This house was one of the highlights of our trip. Such a beautiful place to stay. Just minutes from the cliffs - it was perfect for our group.

I live in Ardee and have two daughters. I have been visiting Clare for 30 years and the last four years staying at the School House. It is a beautifully restored school built in 1848.
