        Wonderful country house!

        We had a wonderful time at this beautiful country cottage. The house is generously sized and we had plenty of room for our family of four to spread out, and yet still spend most of our time all together. The location is fantastic - remote enough to feel out of the way, yet close enough to towns for convenient grocery shopping and sightseeing. Every room has beautiful views of the bay and Sheep's Head peninsula. We filled our time with day trips throughout the area, but we were also very happy to sit in the cottage and relax in the peace, quiet, and natural beauty of the area. We will try to be back!

        5/5 Excellent

          So beautiful and handy to town and the countryside.

          Especially loved walking to the standing stones for a “spiritual “ experience. Shopping in Bantry and restaurants were great. Will be back.


            Nice cottage in great location

            We would be awarding our stay 5 stars were it not for several maintenance issues that we encountered. The cottage is well built and has great views of Dunmanus Bay. However lack of attention to preventative maintenance by the owner meant that we had to deal with several issues, the most serious of which was the potentially defective oil-fired central heating system. Thanks to Anna, the very helpful and positive housekeeper, these were mostly dealt with quite quickly. Note that the charges for electricity and fuel oil are quite a lot higher than their cost to the landlord and could add up quickly, if the weather is not cooperating. To be fair, in our case, the landlord agreed to reduce what we owed by more than half. The prepay WIFI system costs can mount up, and requires access to an Irish Freephone number, which our US cell phones could not call. However, the local store in Durrus will let you use their phone to make a prepayment.


              Great location off a very quite road

              Great location - in a lovely landscape with great views - off a very quite road, close to Durrus, and within easy striking distance to Ballydehob and Skull or the Sheep's Head. Pretty standard Irish holiday home: clean and well maintained, just as shown on Trip Advisor really.
