About the property

Experience the true magic of West coast from Fuschia Cottage. Its location is remarkable in that from the front door you see the broad Atlantic, to the left of you the Cliffs of Moher and on your right hand side the barren Burren landscape.

Fuschia cottage is a family owned and run vacation rental and this is very evident in the hi spec furnishing, level of comfort and cleanliness provided. The owners, Frank and Marian Sheedy, greet all their guests personally on arrival and are always available to assist in any way to ensure their guests have a really successful holiday. The high level of repeat business bears testimony to this fact.

This house has been built to maintain the old world charm of a traditional Irish cottage whilst supplying all modern conveniences that today's discerning traveller requires. It resembles home from home which probably explains why so many guests return year after year.

A sunset viewed from the patio outside Fuschia Cottage is one truly magical experience and not to be missed. Check out our sister property at ID 1256294

The cottage consist of 4 bedrooms - 2 queen size doubles, one twin and one single - two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, sitting room with natural fuel stove, sun lounge, patio with BBQ, gardens and ample parking off the street.

One will find abundant entertainment in the trips to the Aran Islands, visit Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Caves, Doolin Cave, horse riding, swimming, surfing, hill climbing, exploring the Burren. Doolin village renowned for its traditional music has an incredible amount of fantastic restaurants and craft shops and is only a 10 min drive away. Always a pint and a bit of craic to be had there.

Our sister property The Wildberry Cottage is just a few minutes away that also boasts the same wonderful views and sunsets.

Wonderful week in a beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Fuschia Cottage we were taken aback with the stunning views across the Atlantic. It was more than we were exxpecting. Frank and Marian couldn’t be more welcoming and fresh baked goodies made a great start to the week. The cottage is well kept and set up as a home rather than a rental so has plenty of character. Lots of sitting areas both inside and out to make the most of whatever weather befalls you, always with a great view.

In terms of location, there is plenty to do and see within a few minutes drive. If we didn’t have 3 small children we would have loved to explore the wilderness and the nightlife more, although we would have needed more than a week!

Amazing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing property with breathtaking views and all the comforts of home. We couldn’t have been more impressed with the cottage, it’s location, or the amenities. If you’re looking for a home away from home while traveling then this is the place. Frank and Marian are great people who were extremely helpful in detailing the area. This cottage is a must stay!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The Fuschia Cottage exceeded our wildest expectations during our week in Doolin! The cottage boasts panoramic views of the countryside, the ocean, the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Burren to the south and the beginnings of the Burren to the North. It was comfortable, charming, and cozy with absolutely every detail taken care. This 'Irish cottage' was spacious with four bedrooms, kitchen, living room and sunroom which allowed us to settle in during our week there. Marian and Frank were cheerful, courteous and incredibly easy to deal with. To top it off, we were even welcomed with a basket of Frank's homemade scones, brown bread and candy when we checked in. This is an absolute winner!!!
