Area Situated on the west coast of County Clare in Ireland, the village of Spanish Point takes its name from the Spaniards who died there in 1588 when the Armada was wrecked during stormy weather. Today, the village consists of many holiday homes, several pubs - some of which offer live Irish music - a lovely beach which is popular amongst swimmers and surfers, and a nine-hole golf course - one of the oldest in Ireland. Just three miles away is the small town of Miltown Malbay, providing a selection of shops and pubs, whilst the seaside town of Lahinch is also close by. Visitors can enjoy the Cliffs of Moher - located to the north of Lahinch - which offer superb views of the North Atlantic and the Aran Islands in clear weather.
Region County Clare has so much on offer; boat trips, quirky pubs, seaside resorts and a great tradition for Irish music, all set amidst spectacular scenery such as the towering Cliffs of Moher and the fascinating landscape of The Burren.

Our 2nd visit to Bluebell cottage, this time with a one year old! We had a lovely relaxing time, garden is great for the dogs, very safe. The garden is well kept and was abundant with butterflies and bees which was great to see.
Inside the facilities are good. Big open, airy space. Travelcot and highchair were good quality and the cooking facilities are excellent.
One minor negative, some of the door handles need tightened up.

What a fabulous location! 5 minutes walk into Miltown Malbay, great tourist places to visit, and 2 minutes from the beach for fabulous refreshing walks - still missed.
The facilities at Bluebell Cottage were just stunning and the cottage itself was so welcoming and warming. If you want peace and quiet - it's here, but if you wanted all your friends to visit - this is the place to invite them! The owners were so welcoming and no question or assistance was a bother. As said, we still miss it and have told lots of people about it. Would definitely stay again.
Everything about the Cottage was really great, very clean, spacious and comfortable.. Located in the heard of Co. Clare, it is easy to get to anywhere within 30/45 mins max. Finbarr the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating, providing very tasty scones, milk etc.. Overall a super place to stay.
Lovely cottage that is well equipped and within a short drive to local amenities.. The owners were friendly and welcoming and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay in a beautiful part of Ireland.
The cottage was superb.. The heating system was incredible (we stayed in February), the house is extremely well appointed with extra towels, two tv's (we've small kids so this helped prevent rows on wet days), great kitchen and entertaining space. The location is excellent for a West Clare holiday, 10 mins to Lahinch and the Cliff's, 20 minutes to Kilkee and the Loop Head trail. We had a couple of minor issue's and Finbarr arrived and sorted them out within the hour! We will be back and we'd highly recommend this cottage - absolutely five star space and service. We rent in West Clare usually about three times a year and I think we've found our home from home...
This is a great holiday rental.. Very comfortable and good location. The owner met us and showed us everything we needed to know and also left some homemade scones which was lovely. We would highly recommend this cottage.
An excellent cottage, definitely a four star property, it always has more than what we need.. It is so well equipped. A perfect location for Spanish Point and Lahinch beaches and for touring around Clare. Such friendly owners. I would definitely recommend it.
Bluebell Cottage is amazing! We had a pleasant surprise after a long drive from the ferry port across Ireland. The owners were there to greet us with freshly made scones and jam which were very much appreciated, what a welcoming touch!
The picture on the website doesn't do it justice, as round the back there's a beautiful large extension finished to perfection, with tiled floor throughout. It is a light and airy space with a comfortable lounge area and a roomy kitchen / dining area tastefully done out. .....actually we wanted to live there!!
Lots of interesting little decorations around and a lovely garden at the back. Bedrooms all good and spotlessly clean.
We visited Ireland for a wedding and this was the icing on the wedding cake for us...Many thanks.
Fabulous cottage with all the amenities you could want.. Thoughtful owners. Larger than we'd expected with a big garden which our dog loved to play in.
A great family cottage with everything you would want to make your holiday. Location perfect. near the beach and village of Milltown Malbay. Plenty of space for our dog to run around. Finbarr very welcoming
Having had bad experiences with cottages booked in the past (not via Sykes) I was infact very dubious about booking another cottage.. However Bluebell Cottage was more than one could expect. The cottage was stocked and supplied to a very high standard, internal finishes and cleanliness were excellent. The owner provided a welcome pack on arrival and gave a thorough handover. I would definately book this cottage again.
Delightful cottage and owner went over all the details very throughly when we arrived..
We had a wonderful stay and the Cottage was the icing on the cake. The house was beautiful, a real home from home! I would highly recommend this Cottage - a real luxury.
Absolutely loved this cottage. It has been finished to a really high standard and has everything you could ever need. The cottage was so cosy and is ideally situated within walking distance of the beautiful beach at Spanish Point. The owner gave us loads of info about places to go nearby. Can't fault this place at all and would definitely return if they will have us again!
We liked everything about our holiday from the moment we arrived till the day we left. Bluebell cottage is so beautiful, we could not ask for anything more. We had a wonderful time in a wonderful place, Irish hospitality at its best thank you.
It was a great touring location and lovely to have somewhere nice and comfortable to come home to after a great day of sight seeing.
An excellent cottage and well furnished. It felt like a home away from home, will book this cottage again.
We stayed here for one week in june, the facilities available were excellen. The house was v well equipped, with all mod cons. There were plenty of towels, bedding etc. There was a lovely outdoor ate a with a new barbeque, the kitchen was fully equipped....with beautiful home made scones on our arrival. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our stay with our 6 month old baby. A really lovely holiday home!
Very well situated, extremely clean. Prompt and helpful response from our hosts. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
My partner and I spent a few days down in Spanish Point earlier this year at Bluebell Cottage and had a fantastic time. The cottage was lovely with great original features. Only a few minutes from the beach and golf club and the owners were very nice. I'm sure we will be going back.
Open plan living with loads of natural light coming in through the kitchen / dining room. Beautiful setting, beach and countryside. Brilliant holiday.
This cottage is perfect in every way.
I loved the location and the quaint comfortable cottage.
I could not fault the property.
Bluebell Cottage was wonderful, we received a very warm welcome, had everything we needed for our stay and will definitely come again!
The perfect place for a family holiday.
A fabulous property. It was clean, comfortable and very well appointed. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the welcome we received was first class We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends and family - in fact we would positively encourage them to take a holiday here.
The Cottage surpassed my best expectations by far. The owners made us so welcome. The location was ideal, a short drive to the local beach, local town, local golf course and a fuel station just down the road. What else could one want!
