About Stephanie Gahan
I was born and raised in Dublin, later after some study and travel I settled in Co.Clare where I raised my children and now have adorable grandchildren. I love adventure and presently staying as much time as possible in France, where like in Ireland I love to hike coastal paths and hillsides, gathering inspiration for my soul and designs.

Stephanie Gahan purchased this Cottage in 1991
Why Stephanie Gahan chose Feakle
I enjoy renovating this 300year old property which although situated on a quiet rural hillside in East Clare, it is a fantastic hub for Shannon airport, Galway city and countyside, the amazing 'Wild Atlantic way,' the Burren national park, Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, Castles, Megalithic sites and much more. The area is peaceful and the cottage is welcome return to after being out and about exploring the landscape or visiting the nearby towns and cities and all that te Mid west has to offer.
What makes this Cottage unique
I love this area with it's friendly quiet farming, artistic and healing neighbours, clean air, nature, good food, space, calmness, small roads and country walks. Also a hub to all that the Mid west has on offer!

The perfect place for a quiet week off the grid
This small cottage is like a cozy refuge to get away from every-day life. It is so quiet out there, you almost won't believe it. And yet (if you have a car) you can get into town in 10 minutes. Being quite central in Claire County, it also can be a good starting point for day-trips around the country.
Our Druid cottage stay.
Loved being in the country instead of a busy city. Very peaceful. Great cottage. Very friendly and helpful hostess. Would recommend to any one.
I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay and recommendation but could not help noticing the 1 lonely little Star. Please email me if you have any recommendations on where I can improve, it would be great to receive your feedback!
This little cottage FAR exceeded my expectations. It was an absolutely perfect location, and made a great ‘home base’ from which to explore the area and take in the traditional music for which East Clare is so well known. Steph was a welcoming and responsive host, and I hope to come back; it truly feels like home!
Delightful stay in East Clare!
Sweet cozy cottage in a fantastic rural area. So many walking routes nearby, and Steph has plenty of suggestions for ways to get out into the landscape and history of the area. Steph is a very caring, thoughtful host and a pleasure to talk and visit with.
Thank you Elisabeth for your time and choosing my cottage for part of your stay in Ireland, would love to see you back again sometime in the future.
Excellent country cottage, peaceful setting
The Druid Cottage was and excellent choice for exploring Clare and Galway, although somewhat cool outside, the cottage was always plenty warm with the peat fueled stove.
Cozy, peaceful, rejuvenating haven after busy tourist days!
Druid Cottage is a peaceful haven! At first we were concerned that it seemed far from everything but actually it’s just far enough!!! Tucked against a hill in farm country...a short walk up the hill and there are gorgeous views of the hills and valley and even the lake. We loved that Stephanie recycles and composts and there’s an organic farm stand at the end of her drive. Stephanie went out her way to make us feel welcome and gave great advise on things to do and see, places to shop and eat. We were so sorry to leave and hope someday to return! Thank you Stephanie!
Thank you Vicki delighted you enjoyed the space and hope to see you return again anytime.
