The Cottage at Knockatureen

Kilkishen, County Clare

The Cottage at Knockatureen, meaning "tower of the small hill", is a cozy, traditional 200 year old thatched stone cottage adjacent to Loch Clonlea, one of the many lakes surrounding the village in County Clare. Situated on an acre of green, with lush gardens and fruit trees, the self-catering cottage has immense charm and character; quietly secluded and yet within walking distance of Kilkishen, a small town with two local pubs. The cottage is only 20 minutes from Shannon Airport, close to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and minutes from Ennis, the lively, genuine market town of County Clare.

Overall Rating: Best " "- Suzie Thompson Vacaville, California My husband and I just returned from a three week stay in Ireland at "The Cottage at Knockatureen", a charming recently renovated thatch cottage. It had all the modern conveniences, but still retained its original flavor. A two bedroom cottage with a modern kitchen, dining room and a lovely sitting room with large fireplace, this cottage is about 20 minutes from Shannon Airport, a mile out of the little town of Kilkishen in County Clare. We were within a day's drive of the Burren, Gallway Bay, and fifteen minutes from the famous Bunratty Castle. We found it a delightful, relaxing way to spend a vacation, exploring all the interesting countryside by day, and reading by the fire in the evening.

"The Cottage", is a perfect blend of the "old sod" charm of an Irish cottage with the modern conveniences necessary to make your stay not just pleasant, but "grand altogether". The carefully restored interior, with its old Irish slate and pine floors, as well as antique pine ceilings and whitewashed walls, is furnished with antiques and period pieces. It will take you back in time to the age when the Celtic peoples worked the land by day and returned to the warmth and cheer of the hearth by night.

The "Cottage at Knockatureen" asks merely that you enjoy your stay, keep it neat and tidy, take good memories with you and leave only your footprints behind.
