Beautiful pink gate cottage
We just spent a week at this property. It was perfect for us as a couple but also has enough room for two other couples or a small family. We decided to keep it all to ourselves as it was so peaceful d picture perfect. The views to The Blaskets from every room and the beautiful gardens and proximity to Port Magee made it a very special experience. We cycled around Valentia and drove to Waterville for lunch one day. Also spent time at Balinskelligs beach. There’s a wonderful garden and cafe there. Thanks Doris and Tim. We’ll be back! Mark and Sinead

A gem of a cottage on Valentia Island
We had a wonderful stay at Pinkgate Cottage. its truly remote and away from it all yet very cosy and a 10 minute drive to the nearest villages Portmagee on mainland or Knighstown on the Island. The owner of the cottage was a gentleman and very welcoming. Would certainly recommend this cottage as a superb location to stay and explore the coast locally. Waterville, Derrynane and the Skywalk in Kells Bay were well featured on our list.

5/5 Excellent

Incredible cottage in incredible location
This is one of those top echelon of cottages I have had the pleasure of staying in. The location is close to perfect, overlooking the ocean and the rolling fields. A walk away is the incredible bray head, and a short cycle away are the villages on the north of the Island. The cottage itself is very well stocked, with a great kitchen for those stay at home dinners, good heating, high water pressure, and pleasent rooms. Tim was a great host and gave me useful tips for even more walks, and his art in the house only added to the enjoyment. The garden includes lovely furniture for those rare days when its sunny :) Will be back without a doubt.

Perfect getaway in a lovely part of Ireland
Tim and Doris’s home on Valencia was the perfect getaway. Their home is warm and lovingly restored with all the perfect touches. I found it an imaginative ambiance. We enjoyed cozying by the fire in the evenings, making meals at home and soaking in big bathtub. The house is within a few kilometers of Bray Head which made for a most perfect and scenic hike. I enjoyed picking wild blackberries on the road to Bray Head. While on Valencia, we enjoyed visiting the lighthouse, the quarry, Skellig Michael by boat and knights town. We’ll definitely look forward to returning and staying at no other but Pink Gate.
