Mary Kelleher’s Fergus View is one of the great County Clare destinations, a hospitality star for the Banner County.
And Fergus View is not just a star, but has been a star for more than five decades, for Margaret Kelleher first opened the doors of the house in 1962, with her son and daughter-in-law, Declan and Mary, taking over the running of the house in 1978, so Declan and Mary themselvs have offered perless hospitality for four decades, in addition to offering superb cooking for their guests.
Like everyone who has stayed in the house, we have unforgettable memories of staying in Fergus View, and we even made a television programme here, as part of our series “McKennas’ Ireland”. Mrs Kelleher took the hassle of having a television crew in her house capably, and unflappable, in her stride. But then, that is what she does with everything, and everybody, who has the good luck to turn up at the house, high on the hill overlooking the river Fergus and the village of Corofin. And that is what Mrs Kelleher has done for four decades: Fergus View offers something unforgettable, the pure drop of Irish hospitality.
