Cloghaun Luxury Homes is a meticulously restored late 1700s Irish farmstead comprising the main house, The Hawthorn (sleeps 8) and The Hazel (sleeps 4) situated just outside Doolin, Co. Clare, overlooking the Aran Islands and Galway Bay on the Wild Atlantic Way. These two properties are available for short and long term stays and can be rented together, or individually.
These properties have been in the Howard family since the 1830s and in 2017 were lovingly restored by a fifth generation member of the Howard family. The standard of accommodation in both properties is exceptional, and has to be seen to be truly appreciated. The restoration successfully marries modern conveniences with style and luxury, while also retaining many original features.
These luxurious holiday lodges are a three minute drive from the Atlantic Ocean, seven minutes drive to Doolin and are adjacent to Ballinalacken Castle Hotel. They are the perfect setting from which to experience Ireland’s majestic Wild Atlantic Way and to explore the unique landscape of the Burren, designated a UNESCO world heritage site. This area of Clare has lots to offer, be it fishing, hill walking, golf, horse riding and much more, all set against the beautiful local scenery. Among the many local attractions are the world famous Cliffs of Moher, Doolin and Aillwee Caves and Poulnabrone Dolmen.
