Beautiful thatched cottage
A lovely thatched cottage close to Cork city but far enough away to be peaceful and feel well in the countryside. We had a very comfortable stay with every need catered for. Would have no hesitation in recommending as a base to see the sights of beautiful county Cork. David and Eilis were fantastic hosts who ensured everything was perfect for our stay

Irish Dream
This Irish Cottage fulfilled all our Irish dreams! Eilis and David were magnificent hosts who wanted our stay to be the best we ever experienced, and they did not fail. The cottage and its surroundings were even more beautiful than the photos on VRBO. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a taste of true Ireland. Thank you Eilis and Dave.
