The space
Druid Cottage' is a small but spacious renovated cottage from the original Farm Dairy and is an ideal ‘Home from Home’ space for a Staycation and with broadband internet its also ideal for people working from home in need of a change. Artists, writers and digital nomads have enjoyed long stays, working while also taking in the sights and find the East Clare walking trail refreshing for mind, body and soul.

The cottage is an airy open plan space with a well-equipped kitchen off the main room with full sized cooker, microwave, Lavazza coffee maker, kettle, toaster etc Tea, coffee and the usual condiments. Seasonal Organic vegetables can be bought on a stall across the road, run on trust, you just put the money in an honesty box on the table. Unpasteurised milk, cheese and yogurt can also be bought from the organic farm which is a small walk up the lane.

The bedroom is a mezzanine/loft bedroom. Please, take note of the rustic and securely fixed wooden ladder as seen in the photos. The bed is a comfortable mattress on the floor as the height of a full bed would be too near the ceiling. There are also single beds one in the loft and a single day bed downstairs.

Bathroom is also off the main room with shower, toilet and wash hand basin, towels, toilet rollsand soap are provided.

Washing machine and dryer is not included in the price because many guests do not require these facilities again there is an honesty box by the machines for you to deposit your contribution. Iron and board and a small hairdryer in main room clothes closet.

Heating is Solid fuel and electric. 5units per day is included in the price after it cost 1 euro per unit. Meter will be read at beginning and end of stay. Wood is available t service stations or local grocery stores and hardware merchants. If you forget to buy fuel, there is a bag of wood by washing machines and again, the donations box is useful.

This cottage is a much-welcomed home base after a long day of exploring. Sit outside on a summers evening or warm your toes by the cozy wood-burning stove. Suitable for the loan traveller or a couple but not so great for children under 12 years old. I live next door, respect my guest’s privacy and individual loan travellers have the comfort of knowing that they are not entirely alone, on this calm country hillside. With concerns for everyone's health we leave 48 hrs between guests to allow for extra and sanitisation. We have also minimised some soft furnishings and extra kitchen utensils to enable easier cleaning but if need anything please ask and we will facilitate where possible

During the winter season this cottage is available for long term letting for an agreed price.

Guest access
The entire cottage is for you only with the small garden included.
Parking is alongside my car at my front door.
Key safe is by the door, door opens out, light switches inside on right and you will find the Cottage manual with local information.
Please text when you arrive and if you have any questions or need knowledge of the area, we are happy to advise.

Other things to note
It is very IMPORTANT FOR people arriving from outside Ireland to check our Irish government Pandemic guidelines, especially before booking. Check the Irish Government websites for the latest updates on Covid 19 restrictions in Ireland.

Smudge is an elderly and very friendly cat but please do not feel obliged to entertain her, it is best that she is outdoors so that she doesn't pick up habits from guests. She also has her very own apartment with 3 beds to choose from and constant supply of food!

During Covid 19 you can supply your own bed linens and towels but please inform us if you are also bringing your duvet and pillows.
