Area Situated on the west coast of County Clare, Spanish Point takes its name from the Spaniards who died there in 1588, when the Armada was wrecked during a storm. Today, the village is composed of several pubs offering live Irish music, a lovely beach - which is popular for swimmers and surfers alike - and a nine-hole golf course, which is said to be one of the oldest in Ireland. The small town of Miltown Malbay is only three miles away and provides a selection of shops and pubs. Also within easy reach is Lahinch, which caters largely for surfers. Visitors can enjoy a trip to the Cliffs of Moher and the north of Lahinch – both of which offer superb views of the Atlantic and the Aran Islands. Ennis is also within easy driving distance and boasts unusual shops, bars, restaurants and a lively Irish music scene.
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.

The home was extremely dirty.. As a party of 8, myself and another guest arrived early before the rest. We spent two hours having to clean everything before the rest arrived. Utensils in the kitchen were filthy, the table mat had food left on it from previous guests, we could not sit on any chair in both the kitchen or living room due to dust. Under the duvet in one bedroom we found 3 dead woodlice, very unappealing having to sleep in.
The house is ideal, plenty of space and in a good location, but the hygiene was absolutely awful. We were hoping to make this a regular trip but unfortunately we will not be back over the poor level of cleanliness.
The house was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for - had a great week and really enjoyed staying there! Thank you :)
What a fabulous cottage in a great location for us!
Terry the owner was lovely nothing was too much trouble. The garden is ideal for children and pets (next time we will bring the dogs)
The drive was big enough to accommodate 4 cars and gates could be closed to keep children in lol, very child friendly with high chair, cot and child gate provided.
2 lovely downstairs bedrooms for the older generation and the bathroom has a jacuzzi!
Will be back in October to see the family.
Serene House was fantastic and our host Terry was really welcoming and helpful.. Would definitely stay again. The only drawback was lack of wifi, otherwise 10/10.
We all loved the location, it was near enough to lots of fabulous locations but also very private. Just what a group of women needed to relax.
