Fodor's Expert Review Loop Head Lightkeeper’s House

, Co. Clare, Ireland

With 300 degrees of coastal views and little else but ocean between this retreat and New York, Loop Head Lighthouse is the place to rewind and charge batteries. In keeping with its past, the house is simply furnished with white Shaker furniture, timber flooring, and traditional brass beds. Price per night is €225 (minimum stay two nights) and the house can accommodate five people.
