We opened our home to guests about 18 years ago. It was actually a friend from England who started my journey into bed and breakfast. He was a keen fisherman and as Co Clare is an angler’s paradise with lots of lakes with good catches, he asked me would I be able to accommodate eight of his friends, who he was taking on a fishing trip. I said okay, I cooked their evening meals and really enjoyed keeping them, so it started to become a yearly event and Hillview Farmhouse B&B was born!
I was born in the area and know it well. My parents actually live next door and I have a great interest in rural tourism, so I’ll be able to provide you with lots of information on our region. Our location in Ennis is popular with angling, cycling and walking enthusiasts. We provide storage areas for walking and fishing equipment and bait. Clare is famous for traditional music and we have some great venues that we will recommend to you. We know the best restaurants too. Whether your passion lies with horse-riding, heritage and culture, bird watching, nature trails or you just want to enjoy Ireland’s beautiful landscapes, Hillview Farmhouse is the ideal base for all these activities.
