The Merchant’s House Heritage Holiday Homes

These unique holiday homes overlook the Market Square in the lively harbour town of Kilrush, County Clare. Lovingly restored and beautifully furnished, these Kilrush homes offer wonderful period charm, boasting a number of original features dating from the property's beginnings in 1811 and subsequent history through the intervening 200 years. In 1963 the Fleadh Cheoil was held in Kilrush and The Dubliners played in what is now the kitchen of The Merchant’s Store. The timberwork and coving are faithfully presented in a style akin to that enjoyed by the milling merchant who first called the property home in the early 19th century. Antique furniture brings a certain level of luxury and visitors can take a step back in time and relax in the original cast iron clawed leg bath found in The Merchant’s House. For those that appreciate easy access to the amenities of a town, this Kilrush cottage townhouse is centrally located, perfect for the many shops, pubs and restaurants while the town is also home to a small beach, pier and marina. Kilrush is situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, a scenic driving route, which incorporates pretty coastal villages, walks and surfing beaches making it ideal for people of all ages whatever your taste of things to do. Upon leaving Kilrush, the Clare coast lays claim to some of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland while the spectacular Cliffs of Moher are less than an hour's drive. Whether you decide to explore the sights of this beautiful part of Ireland or to indulge in some traditional music and a pint of 'the black stuff' in one of the many welcoming pubs in the town, you can be rest assured that your charming Kilrush cottage townhouse will be waiting to welcome you home at the end of another fantastic day.
