Holiday Home by the Sea home swap

Our holiday home is in Spanish Point, 2 kms from Miltown Malbay, in Co. Clare. The cottage overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean, and the sandy beach of Spanish Point is only 2 minutes' walk away.

This simple holiday home has two living areas, joined by an open-plan kitchen and dining area. The three bedrooms (one en-suite) comfortably sleep five. There is also a small patio area ideal for barbecues and outdoor dining. It is one of 10 cottages built as holiday homes in the early 1980s, and was extensively renovated in 2005.

Activities within a short walking distance include golf (see below), fishing, swimming and surfing. The Armada Hotel is just next door, while the many traditional Irish pubs of Miltown Malbay are a couple of kilometres away. To fully enjoy the area, a car is advised (nearest car hire - Shannon Airport, 40 minutes away).

About the location

The Armada Hotel is just next door, while the many traditional Irish pubs of Miltown Malbay are a couple of kilometres away. To fully enjoy the area, a car is advised (nearest car hire - Shannon Airport, 40 minutes away).

The area is famous for its scenery, and for traditional Irish music and pubs. Within a 30 minute drive from the house are the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin (with boats to the Aran Islands), the Burren (scenic landscape, great for cycling and hiking), the Ailwee Caves, Lisdoonvarna Spa town and many other tourist attractions.
