Welcome to Cottage Kennels

Based in Quinn, Co. Clare, Cottage Kennels provides boarding for all types of dogs in our spacious, fully equipped kennel facilities. We have a family run business and have been operating for over a decade, serving the needs of our local community and building up a loyal customer base. We take the utmost care to ensure all dogs are housed at our facilities are kept in a safe, comfortable and cleanly environment, and we will always endeavour to accommodate any special requests. We take up to 28 dogs at the one time, with individual kennels being provided for each dog. In cases where multiple dogs are coming from the same family we can house these dogs in the same kennel.

Each kennel features comfortable dog bedding, water bowls and, if required, a heat lamp. Our purpose built kennels are regularly cleaned to ensure sanitary conditions. During their stay, dogs are exercised twice daily in our spacious fields which feature adequate boundaries and fencing.

At Cottage Kennels we always take down the details of each dog housed here, including contact information for their vet. We have a good working relationship with all local vets but will always aim to bring a dog to their regular vet should any issues arise. We recommend bringing your own food but we also have dog food available.

At Cottage Kennels we accept dogs for short or long term stays. If you’re interested in housing your dog in our kennels, please contact us.



Before a dog can be housed in Cottage Kennels we require that it has received up to date vaccinations. This is for the safety of your dog and of all the other dogs staying here. Ask your vet for the most suitable vaccination programme for your dog.
