Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bren and Paul



Just to let you know we had a fantastic weekend. The house is just amazing, I knew it would be gorgeous, just never expected it to be so big. The weather was fantastic, the kids were out from 7.45 on Friday morning, and were still on the go at 7 that evening, We went to Kenmare on Friday, which was beautiful. Saturday we got the kayaks out and were out for the entire morning. All tired today and the hour less yesterday didnt help.

We were all convinced we were going to win the lotto on Saturday night, and we had made up our minds that we werent leaving if that was the case....it didnt happen!

Thanks a million again

Not Just A Home Away From Home...BETTER!

  • 5 out of 5
When planning our first trip to Ireland, my wife and I reviewed many, many, MANY rental properties. "The Court Yard" met all our criteria; size, location, amenities, price and favorable reviews of past guests. This house is large for our group of four - me, my wife, my sister and her husband - but it appeared to offer everything we would require. And the owner, Brendan O'Sullivan, was extremely accommodating and quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our arrival.
Quite naturally we were anxious about whether or not this house would deliver everything we wanted. After being there only a short time, and definitely more so since we've left, we all agreed...this house is AWESOME! It's large, but "homey"; it's well appointed and very tastefully decorated; it has a terrific water view, especially from the combined lounge and sunroom; it's located in a charming village; it made a terrific "home base" from which to make day trips - Garinish Island, Kinsale, Bantry, the Ring of Beara (stunning scenery!!!!)
And the house keeper, Noreen Murphy, couldn't have been nicer - greeting us when we first arrived to go over the house's features and provide some tips on the area...and checking in on us during our stay to make sure we
were comfortable.
The floor plan is spread out...we took a 'suite' on one side, closet to the water, and my sister and brother-in-law took one on the other end. And we all agreed this is a great house for larger groups, maybe 1 or 2 families with kids - they certainly wouldn't be on top of each other (the kitchen alone is BIG and a really great stop to gather/hang out!)
All in all, we can't sat enough good things about "The Court Yard" - our group gives this a 10 out of 10!

Great family holiday house

  • 5 out of 5
This a really special place particularly if you make use of the immediate access to the sea and kayaking with seals. It is also a great base for exploring the area. The house has plenty of space and worked extremely well for a grown up family with their own partners who could walk in to the village to be independent but also come together in the evenings.

Fantastic location for a large family holiday, with genuine separate space for 4 couples. We had a fantastic time using all the great features: barbecue on terrace, cooking in great well-equipped kitchen , kayaking on the bay with seals, slumbering with books in the lounge, watching films in the TV room, lazing in spa bath tub, walking into restaurants and pubs in glorious weather, and playing golf. Heavenly!

Perfect House for a vacation in a nature paradise

  • 5 out of 5
Our party of six can only say - fabulous! Based upon the online pictures the house was more than we expected. The four bedrooms were spacious and well equipped. My husband and I (the seniors of the group) enjoyed a large bedroom with separate patio which was to the back of the house, giving us solitude and privacy. The other two ground-floor bedrooms, as well as stairs to upstairs bedroom (which was large and offered spectacular views over the bay from its dormer windows) are all close to the kitchen/ outdoor patio area, the hub of the house.

The gardens were lush, the outdoor patio and grill were put to work on most evenings, although we also enjoyed the raised and glassed-in upper patio. The trampoline and kayaks were a hit - we all enjoyed rowing around the area, approaching the seals, tipping over into the water for a cool-off.

We mostly ate at 'home', glorying in the quiet and the view of the bay. We did our shopping either at the unbelievably well-stocked and friendly Spar in Glengarriff (great for picking up sandwiches before a hike but also for 'you-name-it' little items such as candles for a birthday cake!)) or in Bantry, which has everything. Our Glengarriff restaurant of choice was the Martello.

Some unlisted features of the house:
- The separate internet room. The wi-fi allowed access from all over the house, but this extra room was quiet and separate and perfect should someone have some serious on-line sessions in mind, or just wanted to have a direct connection.
- The separate TV room was not overly used but was on occasion a sanity-saver, a place where two teenagers could disappear into the giant bean bags and watch a DVD.
- The 'laundry room' was on the ground floor, nicely ensconced behind hallway double doors, it was eminently convenient and at the same time invisible.

We are hikers so we were looking for something more than the lovely walks in the nearby national park, which, by-the-way, we also enjoyed. The Bera Way was a bit elusive and also too much inland; we didn't want to loose sight of all that water. We discovered Bere Island, which offers breathtaking hiking (wear good hiking shoes and take water) best starting with the ferry from Castletownbere. Once across, head for the lighthouse and keep on going for a hike of any length you choose (we walked for about 3 1/2 hours then looped back to our starting harbour but there are many options available). You walk through a nature paradise and views of the

Wunderschönes Haus in großartiger Lage

  • 5 out of 5
Großes Haus, das perfekt für eine Freundesgruppe oder auch zwei Familien geeignet ist. 4 Schlafzimmer, alle mit eigenem Bad.
Große, gut ausgestattete Küche, die zum Kochen einlädt und gemütliches
Wohnzimmer mit Wintergarten und herrlichem Ausblick auf die Bantry Bay.
Entspricht 100 % der Beschreibung. Glengarriff ist zu Fuß gut in 10-15 Minuten
zu erreichen und die herrliche Umgebung lädt zu Ausflügen ein.
Wir haben die Zeit hier sehr genossen - vielen Dank noch einmal an Brendan und
auch an Noreen (house keeper) für die herzliche Gastfreundschaft

Large house that is perfect for a group of friends or two families. 4 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. Large, well equipped kitchen, perfect for cooking and cozy living room with a conservatory and magnificent views over Bantry Bay. Corresponds to 100% of the specification. Glengarriff is easily reached on foot in 10-15 minutes and the beautiful surroundings are ideal for excursions. We have really enjoyed our time here - thanks again to Brendan and also to Noreen (housekeeper) for the warm hospitality

Beautiful and large home

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful and well designed home that facilitated 4 couples. All bedrooms were ensuite, which made for privacy among the couples. The kitchen was fabulous and allowed plenty of room for 8 people to help cook. We enjoyed watching the seals from the spacious windows in the back of the house. We were only 5 min. from the shopping area, and it was a short drive to the main road. We enjoyed sightseeing, going as far as Blarney Castle the week we were there.

The house is 1 km from the famous village of Glengarriff, which is 20 km west of Bantry, 30 km east of Castletownbere and about 20 km from Kenmare. Glengarriff itself is a wonderful village filled with good restaurants, craft shops and several traditional Irish pubs offering complimentary traditional entertainment at night. The entrance to Glengarriff Harbour is guarded by the world famous Garnish Island with its tropical gardens. There are boat trips to the island every twenty minutes during high season. The whole area is highly influenced by the effects of the gulf stream current which gives this area a sub tropical climate, indeed the house has both Bananna and Olive trees in the lush gardens. Another attraction 100 meters from the house is the Bamboo park, a botanical and horticultural paradise. Glengarriff is also home to the largest harbour seal population in Ireland, the seals can be viewed from the house or from the many nature walks within the village boundaries.

Golf: We have two golf couse's in the immediate area, Bantry Bay Golf Club which is open to visitors and is a Cristy O'Conner Jr. designed park land course with 14 of the 18 hole's having spectacular view's over Bantry Bay. The second course is Glengarriff which is a 9 hole park land course with spectacular view's over Glengarriff Harbour. The club president is the film star Maureen O'Hara who can often been seen in the club house or down in the village of Glengarriff.

There are a further 3 course's with in about 20 km of Glengarriff.
