Co Clare’s staycation appeal is eternally on the rise and now there’s a new luxury accommodation option in the form of Cloghaun Homes. Situated just outside Doolin, the 1700s Irish farmstead was brought back to its former glory last year and now comprises two lodges. Choose from The Hawthorn, the main cottage, which sleeps up to eight, or The Hazel, originally the cowshed, which accommodates up to four. With the Aran Islands, the Burren and the Wild Atlantic Way on its doorstep, the luxe bolthole is set to be an idyllic getaway for holidaymakers this summer. cloghaunluxuryhomes.ie.
