Ballyvaughan Holiday Cottages are three bed self-catering holiday homes located in the centre of the beautiful village of Ballyvaughan in the heart of the Burren. They are just minutes from excellent seafood restaurants and traditional pubs situated in Ballyvaughan village.
Bordering the spectacular Burren National Park and Connemara, Ballyvaughan Holiday Cottages is a great base for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts. You can arrange to hire bicycles in the village and explore the karst landscape of The Bureen. Home to over 70% of Ireland’s native flora, The Burren supports equally diverse wild life – from wild goats to pine martens and a wide variety of butterflies. It is also rich in archaeological features including over 500 ring forts and more than 80 Neolithic tombs. Beneath the surface is a labyrinthine cave network, disappearing streams and lakes.
There is plenty of outdoor activities on offer locally including diving at the Burren Adventures Dive Centre, rock climbing with Nigel Calendar, sea angling and horse riding. Dolphin and whale watching is available at Carrigaholt just over an hours drive away. For those interested in caves, the Aillwee Caves offers a fascinating stroll through an underworld of beautiful caverns and also has Burren Birds of Prey Centre attached to it.
This part of Cunty Clare’s Burren coast is famous for good surf and there are a number of excellent surf schools in the area including Lahinch Surf School which is a 30 minute drive away and Aloha Surf School at Fanore. Fanore is a magnificent Blue Flag Beach, just 20 minutes from Ballyvaughan.
The charming fishing village of Doolin is 25 minutes away and ferries leave regularly from Doolin Pier to the Aran Islands they also offer trips to view the famous Cliffs of Moher from the sea.
Ballyvaughan Holiday Cottages are the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful landscape of the Burren, the rugged coast of County Clare along the Wild Atlantic Way and southern Galway.

We had the most glorious week in thatched Cottage No. 4 in Ballyvaughan, lovely restaurants, great pubs, fantastic sunsets, what is not to like. We will try and get back again for more chill out time and peace and quiet.
