This 130 year old cottage, lovingly restored and full of character, retains its original stone finish - inside and out. Set on an acre of landscaped garden, it was the former home of Michael Brennan, a local blacksmith.

房源

The ground floor, finished with Mexican Terracotta, covers approximately 35 square meters with underfloor heating. Two mezzanine floors have been added and floored with beautifully-grained Honduran pitch pine. The high ceilings and roof beams remain exposed.

The lounge area centres around a multi-fuel stove. Within the original stone wall, there are many interesting details to be found. Above the fireplace, there is an old-style drying rack operated by a manual pulley system. This is anchored with a 'calf-hook', a feature in old farmhouses used for tethering young animals during long winter nights.

The mezzanine loft twin room overlooks the lounge area and is accessed by a spiral staircase. The two double bedrooms are located behind the chimney breast, the upper being accessed by an open stone stairway.

The bathroom comprises a shower, with exposed copper plumbing fixtures, toilet and handbasin. Solar panels provide ample hot water all year round.

The landscaped gardens are very secluded and south-facing. There is off-road, gated carparking for 3 vehicles.

房客使用权限

Guests have access to the entire property including an outhouse which contains a freezer and washing machine.

The property is not wheelchair accessible.

There is a covered fresh-water well which you are requested not to interfere with.

与房客的互动

Mary, our neighbour, will welcome you upon arrival. She will show you around the cottage, is a mine of local information and will be your point of contact during your stay.

其他注意事项

Guests should be aware that, in keeping with the secluded nature of this cottage, and, indeed, the region, there is patchy cell-phone coverage and no internet connection. Wi-Fi is available in Keating's Bar in Kilbaha.

There is no microwave in the property.

Guests are welcome to light the solid fuel stove during their stay. We will provide a starter pack of firelighters and briquettes for the first evening. Beyond that, you will need to supply your own - there's a list of local suppliers in the house manual in the cottage.

While our family have holidayed here with toddlers and young children for many years, we would ask parents to note that there are two mezzazine floors, one accessed by a spiral staircase and the other by open stone steps. Given the nature of the stone work, there are sharp corners throughout the cottage.

As our heating and water system is a modern addition, you will notice exposed copper plumbing throughout the cottage. Due to the age (and with the aim of preserving the character) of the structure, it has not always been possible to insulate the sound of this system, particularly the water pump, as much as we would like. As a result, things occasionally do go ‘bump in the night’!

The property is gated.

We allow well-behaved pets to visit, however, there is an additional charge of €30 to cover additional cleaning. The house is enclosed with a low wall (a meter high) around the perimeter, a gate to the front (the road) and one at the back that leads to the garden. So, provided your pet isn't an escape artist and doesn't jump walls, you shouldn't spend your weekend tracking them around Loop Head! The garden is only bordered by a posted fence and hedge, so not as secure for pets - we usually advise they be supervised if they're in the garden.

The location of the Old Stone House is great. It is so quiet and peaceful and beautiful. We were able to quickly get to the coast road and drive the coast road. We love the sounds of the wind against the windows and the beauty of the area. Aoife is a wonderful host and Mary, the neighbor was a delight.

Wonderful location! Just a beautiful environment to be in! The locals couldn't have been friendlier. Thanks to Mary for checking in on us. I would love to return here!

The house in Lower Cross is wonderfully cozy, perfect for exploring all over the phenomenal Loop Head peninsula. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, the beds have plenty of woolen blankets, there are books and games to spare, and the shower has great water pressure. Still, as lovely a retreat as Aiofe's stone house made, the wonderful people we met while taking our time around Loop Head were the absolute highlight. Not just communicating with Mary the neighbor, but taking up Helen at Keating's recommendation for Bridges of Ross at sunset, gabbing over tea with Ailish and Liz at Kilbaha Gallery, trying the lemon curd ice cream at the Long Dock, and everyone at Foley's and The Lighthouse Inn-- the people we met were deeply welcoming. And the landscapes are unparalleled. Can't wait to come back.

Though this is far out, this cottage is unique and exceptional. We still enjoyed the cliffs of moher and area from there and the extra driving was worth our cozy stay! The loop head lighthouse cliffs were also amazing and the Keatings pub in Kilbaha was a great stop after a long day!

This place was very cozy and was so close to the Atlantic coast. A bit hard to get to, but once you do, it is so worth it! I wish I could come back!

Although I'm from lovely rainy Ireland, I take every opportunity to explore other parts of the globe! Armed with my camera, I enjoy the path less travelled and living as a local. I try never to visit the same place twice but, every so often, Portugal, Croatia or Malta will draw m…
