BALLYVAUGHAN, CO. CLARE
CLARE COUNTY COUNCIL
The tourism complex comprising hotel, adjoining wellness centre, conference centre and 20 holiday houses sit on the edge of idyllic Ballyvaughan village between the Burren and the Atlantic Ocean. A sensitive approach to development was required. Impact from the road side is minimal, and the use of stone fuses the buildings together with the dramatic site. The architectural style is contemporary yet sympathetic to local traditional buildings.
