Sheedys Country House

Sheedy's Country House is a small family owned and managed house, situated in the village of Lisdoonvarna, on the edge of The Burren. Originally a stone farmhouse, John's great grandmother Alice opened the house to guests in the 1930's. John and Martina now take great pleasure in continuing on this tradition. Set in its own gardens and amongst the breathtaking scenery of The Burren, Sheedy's Country House enjoys a perfect location. The original house dates from the 17th Century and is the oldest house in the village of Lisdoonvarna. The Cliffs of Moher are just 8 minutes away. Doolin, Aillwee Caves, Lahinch and Doonbeg Golf Courses are all within a short driving distance. The Burren Way offers the perfect opportunity to breath in the fresh Atlantic air and unwind the mind.
