Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Superb location
The chalet is very compact. It took some discipline and organisation to make our stay comfortable. The bed is very comfortable and the shower and bathroom are very good. It would benefit from additional storage, even some shelves or coat/clothes hooks. It was, of course, great value for money.

A piece of heaven
We loved our stay in the chalet. It was idyllic. Jackie and Jonathan were great hosts, there when we needed them but never intrusive. The chalet had everything we needed and more. Sitting having breakfast in the company of the donkeys was our piece of heaven. We couldn't recommend Rock Cottage more strongly.

5/5 Excellent

Rock Cottage Rocks
Very friendly reception. Everything catered for by Jacqueline and Jonathan. The location was perfect for us to relax and enjoy our short stay. The cottage and grounds are fabulous with very friendly animals (dogs, donkeys and ponies). Will definitely return.

5/5 Excellent

This was our first experience at Glamping. We arrived with open minds ready to make-do no matter. Our experience was just amazing. It became for us an enchanting oasis in an area of West Cork with which we were unfamiliar. We couldn’t have selected a better location. It was central to all. A magnificent compact dwelling, artistically furnished with a delicate, yet tasteful awareness of all that is beautiful in nature. Thank you Jacqueline for our most memorable trip to Schull and surrounds. We loved every moment.
