Historic Private House Accommodation in the Burren

MV1Welcome to Mount Vernon, a lovely Georgian Villa of great charm and interest. Built in 1788 on the Burren coastline of County Clare, the house has fine views over Galway Bay and the surrounding area.

The well proportioned reception rooms contain fine antique furniture, comfortable sofas, paintings and interesting artifacts collected from our extensive travels, all set off by the calm green and gold motif of the rooms. Open fires in the sitting room and library add a warmth and welcome to these lovely rooms. The library opens onto a sheltered terrace and a walled garden of rose beds, herbaceous borders, fruit trees and some immense trees believed to have been a gift from George Washington.


Mount Vernon is Located on the Wild Atlantic Way
