Ceol Na Mara description

Holiday home
This single storey wing of the owner's house is set in a wonderful coastal position at Spanish Point. Set at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, this property offers superb accommodation with two en-suite bedrooms able to sleep four - with sea views as well as a welcoming sitting room with sliding doors. Outside, the property boasts a patio area and a large front lawn, leading to the cliff edge and overlooking a sandy beach. The property is also within a mile of the village's traditional pubs and is close to the amenities of Miltown Malbay, Doolin and Lahinch.

Situated on the west coast of County Clare in Ireland, the village of Spanish Point takes its name from the Spaniards who died there in 1588 when the Armada was wrecked during stormy weather. Today, the village consists of many holiday homes, several pubs - some of which offer live Irish music - a lovely beach which is popular amongst swimmers and surfers, and a nine-hole golf course - one of the oldest in Ireland. Just three miles away is the small town of Miltown Malbay, providing a selection of shops and pubs, whilst the seaside town of Lahinch is also close by. Visitors can enjoy the Cliffs of Moher - located to the north of Lahinch - which offer superb views of the North Atlantic and the Aran Islands in clear weather.

County Clare has so much on offer; boat trips, quirky pubs, seaside resorts and a great tradition for Irish music, all set amidst spectacular scenery such as the towering Cliffs of Moher and the fascinating landscape of The Burren.

Absolutely stunning views and top notch accommodation. The location is fantastic. I would recommend this location to any and everyone, and fully intend to stay here again on our next vacation back to Ireland.

Very friendly hosts. We felt at home and loved the cottage very much. We had a great view of the sea and our daughter loved the ponys. A good place to stay.

We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely house on the west coast and we found the real Ireland! The owners were the most friendly and helpful hosts you can imagine! We entered as strangers and we left as friends! For adults and children this amazing property is the perfect place for a perfect holiday! We will never forget it and would like to come again one day and say thanks a million!

Having such an uninterrupted view of the Atlantic Ocean from the superb cottage was wonderful. Waking each morning to that, was a memorable experience.

Ceol Na Mara is set overlooking the sea and the owners were welcoming and available though not intrusive. Everything about the cottage ensured a relaxing holiday.

Thank you so much for the lovely time we spent at Ceol Na Mar! The owners are so welcoming and did everything to make us feel at home. The property is stunning with a perfect view of the ocean. With little kids you could definitely enjoy the ponies as well, and of course Spot the donkey! From the house you can drive up and down the West Coast and get to see Ireland at its finest. Some major tourist-attractions are perfectly suited for a day-trip! Well, as you can read, we enjoyed our stay and recommend it to everybody!

Beautiful view, had a very relaxing stay. Kids loved the freedom of the garden and being able to see the ponies and donkeys in the adjacent field.

The situation of the property has a wow factor - lie in bed gazing at the Atlantic with sunset and stars at night. An ideal situation for exploring County Clare.

The quality of the accommodation is excellent and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. We would rate this property probably the best we have stayed in. We enjoyed one of the best holidays ever.

This property is the best I have ever stayed in. The owners, garden and views were out of this world. We would have no hesitation to revisit, well recommended.

A truly wonderful experience, the cottage exceeded anything you could wish for in a holiday accommodation. The owners were welcoming and knowledgeable and now can be added to our list of friends. Facilities were excellent and the view of the ocean a serene experience. Highly recommended - we will return...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Ceol Na Mara at Spanish Point and had a wonderful time. The cottage itself has been well looked after and provided all the essentials we needed for our break. The cottage is located next to the sea, with sea views from the living room across the garden; these views are stunning in the evening when the sun is setting out west. What we appreciated the most about our stay here was the warm hospitality we received from the owners of the cottage; they provided essential guidance on the best way to see Clare, helped us out when we needed it, took us on an night out to an Irish pub (was a great night) for all this we are very grateful. I would definitely recommend Ceol Na Mara as a place to stay to see the natural beauty of west Ireland and Clare.

What a fabulous holiday! The owners were lovely people, very friendly and welcoming, made us feel totally at home. The cottage was perfect. A little bit of heaven. In a beautiful location overlooking the sea. We could not have wished for a better place to stay, we will definitely be returning!

Our hosts have over thirty five years experience in the hospitality trade so the welcome was wonderful, we got on so well that we have become great friends and made arrangements to return next year. The accomodation was superb and the furnishing excellent . The view to the rear of the property out to sea was breathtaking a beautiful sunset every night . There was plenty of places to go to in reasonable distance. The cliff top walks were amazing The friendly Irish people made our holiday complete.

The owners were wonderful and very helpful. We would absolutely recommend this holiday. 'The Armada Hotel' does very good meals.

In 'Coel Na Mara' the music of the sea accompanied the peerless views from the comfortable modern cottage. The friendly owners were always ready to help but respected our privacy. This was very good value and we would stay there again.
April 2015
This beautifully and generously furnished cottage was beyond our expectations! The views of the Atlantic from the master bedroom and sitting room, the distant sound of the crashing waves, sitting out in the evening in our own outdoor sitting area was magical! Our hosts, Sheila and Raymond, live in the attached cottage and could not be more accommodating without being overbearing. Warm and generous with their time and very knowledgable. Perfect place to relax and unwind. We have traveled through Ireland on many visits. We made day trips to Kerry, Galway and of course, Clare. The Cliffs of Moher are only a short drive away. Just lovely! Will definitely be back! USA

This is one of, or perhaps even the BEST cottage I've stayed in in Europe. The most spectacular views are non-stop with the front yard stretching to the cliff top of the Atlantic, it's centrally located on the west coast, so for touring each day (as we did), it's a prime location to access many of Irelands "things to see". The cottage is immaculately clean, and has everything you could possibly need. Our hosts, Raymond and Sheila were two of the friendliest people I have ever met, and were very helpful in planning our day trips with directions and suggestions on the "must see" list. I fully plan to return someday, and will make Ceol Na Mara our home when we do.

Ceol Na Mara is cosy cottage on Spanish Point (a short drive to Lahinch). The owners couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. It is small but perfectly formed with each bedroom having its own en-suite shower room and a really well equipped kitchen. There is a lovely view out to the Atlantic ocean and a beautiful well-tended garden. Although small kids would need to be supervised, the garden (with swings and goals) was ideal for our 2 kids (8 and 10). It's a 10-15 walk to the Armada Hotel and other places to eat out in Spanish Point. The only downside is that wifi is only available outside, which isn't great if it's raining or you want to use a laptop.

Although the weather was rainy (what else is new...) we experienced Ireland at its best. Very friendly people, spectacular sightseeing, delicious food etc. The cottage was nice and cosy and we were very well looked after by the owners next door. So it was perfect. Thanks for a jolly good holiday to all involved.

We wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Ireland staying at Ceol Na Mara in Spanish Point, County Clare. It exceeded all of our expectations! This was our first trip to Ireland and this was the perfect location. The views from this house are truly amazing and the accommodations were perfect for us. The owners were also very nice and gave us great recommendations for places to visit and restaurants to dine at.

My husband and I have just spent a week in beautiful Spanish Point and were so lucky to have found Ceol na Mara, the most perfect location in which to stay. The house itself is spotlessly clean, fully equipped and so comfortable. The garden is a huge bonus, just a beautiful oasis in which to enjoy the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, cliffs and even the Aran Islands and all whilst enjoying a glass of wine on your own patio. What more could you ask for! Except that there is, the owners themsevles. Such friendliness and hospitality is hard to find, but definitely not at Ceol na Mara. Just perfect!

The accomodation was good, as per the brochure. it suited our requirements. it was a quiet spot and a good jumping off point to visit a number of places. The facilities in the cottage were good. the owners were very helpful. It had a spectacular view of the ocean. Least liked - TV going up in smoke. Quickly replaced!

This property was absolutely outstanding in quality, hospitality and surrounding area, views are out of this world.The owners are an outstanding couple, they generally cared for all our needs, very genuine and sincere people, this helped make it such a good time for us, especially as one of us was unwell for part of the time, again a special thank you to them for that,it was greatly appreciated.Everthing about the place was spotless and extremely well maintained, we would nor hesitate to return there.

We just finished our stay at this cottage and it was a true little piece of heaven. The owners met us at the local hotel to guide us to the property. Driving in to the parking area took my breath away! The views are stunning and it was a great base for touring the area. The owners are very friendly yet not intrusive. It was great to have them nearby if needed. We were sad to leave and hope to return again one day. Only tip is to make sure you get good instructions on how to run everything if you aren't used to european electricity.
