Description from owner


SANDHILLS HOUSE, which has a 2014 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, is a new, family run, 3 bedroom self catering holiday home, which has been finished to high specifications. It is located beside the family home, on a quiet country road in heart of the West Clare. The design of the house ensures that guests have ample privacy at all times but also have the advantage of having the owners nearby should guests have any queries or just want to call in for a chat or need someone for childminding!

The house is a five minute walk from the 2 mile long sandy Doughmore Beach. It overlooks the 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th greens of Trump International Golf Links Ireland (Doonbeg). It has 3 bedrooms, 2 on first floor which are ensuite - king ensuite; double + single ensuite. The third bedroom is located on the ground floor adjacent to the main bathroom, ideally situated for elderly guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with integrated appliances and is stocked with the basic essentials, i.e. tea, coffee, sugar etc. Bed linen, bath towels, beach towels & tea towels are supplied. Solar panels provide the hot water. Free WiFi available. Flat screen TV/DVD combi with free to air channels & radio/CD player in the living room.

There is a large enclosed landscaped garden and a fresh supply of herbs from the herb garden, right outside the kitchen door, for those who enjoy cooking. Ample private parking for several cars and lock up storage facilities for bicycles, golf clubs, surf boards, fishing rods, roof boxes etc.

Children are particularly welcome at Sandhills House where they can enjoy the freedom of the quiet countryside; endless fun on the beach, a visit to the farm and playing in the garden. We have a trampoline, swings, slide, swingball, goalposts, a go-kart, a selection of books, toys and games and buckets, spades & fishing nets for the beach which children are welcome to use. Travel cot, stair gates, high chair, safety bed rails, car booster seat, black-out blinds and socket covers are available for families with very young children.

Trump International Golf Links & Hotel, where guests can enjoy a round of golf, relax in the White Horse Spa, dine in the Ocean View Restaurant or enjoy a drink in Trump's Bar, is only a five minute drive away. Sandhills House is the perfect location for anyone attending a wedding at Trump International Hotel and we offer guests complimentary transport to and from the venue.

Getting around

Our house is located in a rural coastal area on the Wild Atlantic Way, mid way between the Cliffs of Moher and Loop Head - an ideal base for touring the area. The most practical way of getting around to see all the sights that West Clare has to offer is by car.

Interaction with guest

We live right next door and are always on hand to personally welcome guests when they arrive and to show them around; we are always available should guests have any queries or just want to call in for a chat or need someone for childminding. The design of the house ensures that guests can enjoy ample privacy at all times. We also enjoy taking guests to some of the lesser known beauty spots, that they may not find otherwise.
