Teeroneer

Teeroneer is surrounded by the green, hilly landscape of County Clare, Ireland. This holiday home, situated near Lough Derg in the east of the county, was built on the foundations of an old stone cottage. The modern timber building is framed on two sides by the remains of the cottage – a stone gable wall and a retaining wall – and is protected by mature, leafy trees. Anchored in its surroundings, the house conveys a grounded sense of security – and yet is also imbued with a bright, open atmosphere.

The ground floor, which features the living room with a sitting area by the fireplace, and a dining area and kitchen, opens out to the landscape with floor-to-ceiling windows. The lowered level of the kitchen, with the floor merging seamlessly into the kitchen worktop, creates a generous sense of space. You can see right through these living areas into the landscape outside. From the two bedrooms (both with a balcony) and the bathroom on the upper floor, you can also see far out into the lush countryside. These views and the limited set of materials used – wood, glass, concrete and stone – define the quiet, natural ambience of the house.

What to do

County Clare offers a beautifully varied landscape, from green hills with quaint villages to the wild Atlantic coast. The house is situated near the village of Tuamgraney on the Graney River, which flows into nearby Lough Derg (Ireland's third-largest lake). Lough O'Grady in front of the house is the perfect spot for fishing, canoeing and bird watching. Hiking in the Slieve Bearna and Slieve Aughty foothills takes only a few minutes by car.
The area is famous for traditional Irish music, especially the nearby village of Feakle, where the Feakle Festival is held every August. Burren National Park is just an hour's drive away and offers some of the finest preserved archaeological landscapes in Western Ireland. Other attractions include the Wild Atlantic Way, Loop Head Cliffs, Cliffs of Moher, Shannon River and the Aran Islands. The medieval town of Galway is 90 minutes north by car.

Why we like this house

A refuge in nature that combines openness and transparency with a feeling of cosiness.

Nature lovers and those seeking tranquillity.
