Selborne Cottage

Sunrise over the estuary

The cottage is located in a special conservation area surrounded by natural beauty and a very important location for bird life with a diversity of habitats including mudflats, salt marsh and associated wildlife species and plant species. From the terrace of the cottage you have a splendid view of the Shannon estuary with historic Scattery Island and across to county Kerry. Watch the sunrise and sunset over the estuary from the terrace or from the shore line!

Loop Head Peninsula is surrounded by the River Shannon to the South, and by the Atlantic Ocean to the North with a majestic coastal scenery. The Shannon Estuary is home to more than 100 dolphins which can regularly be seen from the coast or on dolphin watching boat tours from Carrigaholt, just 10 mins. away. The rugged beauty of the area is largely unspoilt - so much so that the area can boast of having the purest air in Europe offering many exciting outdoor activities (see next page). The Loop Head Peninsula was the overall winner of the competition "The best place to holiday in Ireland" by "The Irish Times" in 2013!
The Loop Head Peninsula
The town of Kilkee is just 7 kms. away and one of the country's most popular seaside resorts with quite a few natural amenities around its horseshoe-shaped bay. The safe sheltered sandy beach is protected by Duggerna Reef, which is a natural wonder itself with some large and small rock pools full of marine life, and which are popular bathing spots. Breathtaking cliff walks offer splendid scenery. This cliff scenery all along to Loop Head Lighthouse is one of Ireland's greatest natural attractions.

Pollock holes in Kilkee

Kilrush is a market and heritage town with access to the Shannon River through a modern Marina. One of its most interesting attractions is historical Scattery Island, an Irish landmark which can be reached by regular boat trips from the marina (

The coast road from Kilkee to the North brings you to the amazing scenery of the Cliffs of Moher and the limestone region of the Burren.
