5/5 Excellent

A quiet comfortable country idyll
We all enjoyed our stay here during July’s unusually Mediterranean like weather, nestling just beyond the edge of the Glengarriff Nature Reserve, surrounded by tumbling countryside, forestry and native wildlife, we had very little or no complaints. A bright modern home, with plenty of room and all mod cons. A great location to take in the Beara peninsula whether it be on foot, by bike or car. Not to mention Glengarriff town, the nature reserve, Pooleen Woods, Barley Lake and the quiet country surrounds themselves. Be warned that you need rely on your own mobile data connection for internet but even this was capable enough (3G only speeds with mobile phone mounted as high as possible toward the externalities) so even the kids still managed to get their daily YouTube fix ! I can recommend this property without hesitation.

Beautiful and tranquil location.
Property was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Paul and Bernie were great to deal with. Extremely helpful at all times. Amazing location, so peaceful. River at end of garden to explore and rocks to climb which kids loved. Pooleen lake just down the road which is magical for swimming and exploring. Absolutely amazing stay. Will definitely be back again.

Wonderful house in exceptional woodland setting.
The house was impeccably cleaned for our arrival with a great welcome from the caretaker. The setting is the beautiful Glengarriff Nature Reserve, totally peaceful and with wonderful woodland walks such as the amazing Waterfall Walk within a short distance. Glengarriff town, Garnish Island , swimming in the river in the woods, lunch in the Eccles Hotel, so many great experiences in our stay at the River House :)
