Great Irish Getaway
The property is as beautiful as the pictures. Everything was clean, tidy, and ready for our stay. Jackie & Jonathan are very friendly, helpful, and attentive hosts. With the main house, just across the lawn and car park, they were always available when needed. We had a wonderful stay and would like to return, because it was such a positive experience!

Our summer vacation in Rock Cottage
Our second time in Rock Cottage, it was again a great place to stay because of the beauty of the cottage and surroundings, the friendly owner and neighbors and the many activities offered in the region. I hope there will be a third occasion :-)

A rare find and secret gem
It is rare to come across a place so perfect. Jackie and Jonathan go above and beyond with anything you need, and have created a little piece of heaven in Ireland. The house has everything you need, and is spotlessly clean and tidy. Outside is equally charming from the vegetable garden and fresh eggs from the resident chickens and ducks, to feeding the donkeys, and having friendly and loving dogs and cats roaming the property, and joining for walks. If you are planning a trip to the Atlantic Way/a break in the beautiful west coast, you would be lucky to stay here. There are some many beautiful places to see, places to eat and lots to do - that Jackie and Jonathan will recommend. I have travelled all over the world, and Rock Cottage will be one of the treasured places to always remember and return to.
