Clifden House

Clifden HouseClifden is a listed, early Georgian house hiding on the wooded shore of Lake Inchiquin, the southern boundary of the remarkable Burren region. Abandoned for many years, the house is slowly being coaxed into compromise with the twentieth century. The resulting mixture of gentle ruin and epicurean comfort somehow sidesteps time.

Bernadette is passionate about cooking and her organic fruits, vegetables and meats come from the garden and the nearby family farm. The River Fergus flows through the stableyard and, along with a host of lakes, provides trout and pike fishing. Shooting, riding, hunting, golf, walking and the great wealth of natural history of the Burren are all on the doorstep. Shannon Airport is just 20 miles away.
