Ashleigh House is the former homestead of the Meaney family. It is located in the lovely little village of Barefield which is just a 7 minute drive from the main Co.Clare town of Ennis. This town is one of Ireland's jewels - known as the capital of Irish music -you'll not struggle to happen upon a cosy pub in winter with a big fire surrounded by traditional musicians and the uniquely Irish fun and chatter known as craic that goes with it.
This area of Co.Clare is sorrounded by history and within a short drive of Ashleigh House you have the majestic castles of Bunratty and Knappogue with their nightly (not to be missed) mediaeval banquets and also at Bunratty the spectacular Folk Park where you can take a guided tour.
Also the thriving Limerick city is just a 35 minute drive from the house.
A three hour drive from Dublin airport and a 20 minute drive from Shannon airport, the house is in the heart of one of Ireland's most picturesque counties – County Clare. 45 minutes to the east you will find the lake district of the mid-west and its surrounding mountains. 30 minutes to the west is the blue Atlantic with its multitude of beaches, towering cliffs and quaint fishing villages.
Ashleigh house has five main bedrooms, two sitting rooms and a conservatory. All bedrooms are en-suite, centrally heated and adorned by an open plan kitchen. A flagstone patio to the south of the house makes the perfect area to enjoy good weather should you be lucky enough to encounter it! The attention to detail, heart warming hospitality and excellent base location sees visitors returning to Ashleigh house every year.
