Self catering cottage, the Burren, County ClareAn ti glas (The Green House), 7 miles from Ennis, the heart of rural County Clare, is a fully restored traditional Irish farmhouse on a working Organic smallholding. Renovated sympathetically using natural products, this self catering holiday eco-house is situated in rolling countryside on the edge of the Slieve Aughty mountains.

The self catering holiday cottage sleeps up to 5 people. Two large double bedrooms and a comfortable sofa bed ensure a good night’s sleep for all, whilst the wood burning stove in the living room brings a warm and cosy feeling throughout the year. A large sofa in the living space is the perfect haven for catching up on your reading and light is well received from both sides of the house. A modern, well appointed kitchen houses a spacious dining area and wood burning pellet stove. An immaculate bathroom enables you to soak away the hours in the bath. A good shower is also provided. The utility room means you have all mod cons.

Adjoining the self-catering house is a quirky 1 bedroom holiday apartment converted from an old granary. A fabulous spiral staircase leads you up from the kitchen/diner and bathroom up to a comfortable living room and double bedroom on the first floor. Another wood burning stove in the kitchen / diner makes for a cosy addition to An Ti Glas.

A truly green holiday house, the heating for both properties is provided by a wood pellet burning stove, solar panel heats water and waste water is treated by a reed bed system. During the renovation we made use of natural products wherever possible, including hemp and lime, natural paints and double glazed larch windows and doors.
