Absolutely brilliant getaway for a family.

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from our trip to Ireland and couldn't wait to tell everyone what a great stay our family had at Loughbeg farm. Walter and Josephine were excellent hosts and the farm and cottage are just gorgeous and very well maintained. The location is stunning and the people of the area are amongst the friendliest I've ever met. On our first morning we woke up to find cows staring in our windows and goats trotting around near our front doorstep... our two year old daughter couldn't believe her eyes. In addition to all of the farm animals the owners allowed us to pick our own veggies from their greenhouse. If we ever return to Ireland (which, I sincerely hope we do) we'll definitely be coming back to Loughbeg farm.

Loughbeg Farm is hard to beat!

  • 5 out of 5
Loughbeg farm is the perfect place for a lovely family holiday. As the other reviewers have said Josephine & Walter are extremely welcoming with lovely fresh veg, eggs (duck and hen), chocolates , homemade biscuits etc on arrival. The cottage is lovely really bright with wonderful views over the farm and countryside with everything you need for a home away from home - including sky tv and plenty of games, books and dvds for children and adults alike. Our daughters aged 8,6 and 2 had a marvellous time. The older 2 were up and dressed early each morning waiting to go to help milk the goats and feed the hens, pigs, ducks and geese. We did the hill walk each day too visiting the horses, sheep and of course Tootles the donkey on our way back. Schull is 5 minutes away by car and has lovely shops and restaurants. We dined extremely well too on the freshest duck eggs (which our 2 year old particularly enjoyed), Goats cheese and of course the delicious goats milk ice cream. Our 2 year old was also extremely fond of Josephine's homemade biscuits. There is a lovely sheltered garden with a swing and slide for the children to play in. There is also a great Sunday market in Scull. It is also very easy to tour West Cork. The sheep's head drive, Bantry and Mizen Head are well worth visiting, along with beaches a short drive away on Barley Cove a bit further. So when it comes to a holiday location as our 6 year old said - Loughbeg is hard to beat! Thanks again for a wonderful holiday and see you next year.

Cottage outside Schull in West Cork

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely, peaceful, restful week in this gorgeous cottage. We are a family with 3 children aged from 7 to 12. We received a warm welcome from Josephine and Walter and their family. We particularly liked the basket of home grown vegetables and delicious chocolates from a local 'chocolaterie' in Schull together with a bunch of lovely wildflowers and an informative guide on West Cork.

The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and the front of the cottage faces away from the family house and farm and gives a beautiful view of the lovely rugged West Cork landscape. On a fine day its lovely to sit out with a cup of tea or glass of wine and feel undisturbed. We enjoyed lovely long walks on Walter and Josephine's farm as well as in the local area. The children enjoyed walking around and looking at the animals - the pigs were a special favourite. They loved feeding them and missed them the most after we came home!

The cottage is well equipped with everything for cooking, cleaning and entertainment with Sky television as well as an Internet connection just in case you might want to check your emails! .

The cottage is only a few minutes drive from the village of Schull. There are lots of pretty shops to wander around and restaurants. We liked the New Haven restaurant and the Creperie. The food was delicious and the atmosphere very relaxed if you are travelling with children.

Schull is good base for exploring West Cork as it is only a short distance to beaches and other pretty West Cork villages. If you are not travelling and want to sit at home with a good book than Josephine and Walter's cottage is the perfect place. We had a lovely holiday - our only regret was that we had not booked a longer stay. We definitely hope to be back.

Family exploration of Southern Ireland

  • 5 out of 5
We were looking for a quiet, rural location near the coast and this cottage was perfect. The cottage provided everything a family with teenagers required - internet and Sky cable channels, room to spread out and also lots of opportunities to explore the fantastic countryside. We particularly enjoyed our walk up Mt Gabriel, fantastic views and a sunny day. Driving around the Ring of Kerry was another great day and we enjoyed the cheese from the local Sunday market.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from staying at Josephine and Walter's lovely cottage. It was very clean, well equipped, and they could not have been more welcoming. Our dog just loved the company of the resident 3, and we just loved to be able to relax and enjoy this beautiful part of the Irish coast. We stayed an extra night we were so "chilled out" and our only sadness is that we couldn't stay longer. A lovely family and a lovely home. We would recommend a stay here if you want to enjoy some stunning scenery, the convenience of an attractive and friendly town nearby but the peace and quiet of a farm stay.
