About Jacqueline Sarsfield

I am a fun loving individual who loves travelling and meeting new people. My particular passion are the animals here at Rock Cottage and the beautiful unspoilt landscape. My interests are walking, photography & cooking. I love to go walking around this part of Ireland and exploring all the beautiful sites. My passion is to go to the local farmers' markets and cook with locally grown produce.

Jacqueline Sarsfield purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jacqueline Sarsfield chose Schull

I spent much of my childhood here in Ireland having been born in Dublin. I moved full time to Ireland in 2014 from London.

What makes this cottage unique

Having rented Rock Cottage for over a year, I decided to purchase this beautiful place and continue with this well established holiday accommodation business. The gardens, paddocks and surrounding hillsides are stunning, particularly the 360 degree view from the top of the garden overlooking Dunmanus Bay, The Sheeps Head and on the other side the hills and Mt Gabriel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This is a spacious excellently equipped three bed cottage in a lovely pretty and quiet spot. Inside it is stylish, clean and comfortable - host Barbara has thought of everything and was really helpful and friendly !





There is one large bedroom, modern good sized kitchen, modern bathroom and comfortable lounge / diner with open fire in addition to full oil central heating.



This is a great area for seeing a beautiful quiet and natural part of Ireland without the tourist coaches. Cork and places like Kinsale are easily accessible for a day trip.





We would recommend Rock Cottage without hesitation"

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

A great location - the property is ideal and very much became our home from home. Barbara was a great host and made us feel very welcome. The area is fantastic for walking particularly along the Sheep's Head Peninsular - try the Cahergal Loop. Mizen Head and Baltimore well worth a visit. If the weather is kind whale watching with Nic Slocum form Baltimore harbour is a must

Wunderschönes Cottage in wunderschöner Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 2 wunderschöne Wochen in Rock Cottage verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr gemühtlich eingerichtet und es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht. Das Anwesen ist sehr gepflegt und von dort aus kann man sehr viel unternehmen. Die Besitzerin ist sehr nett und sie gestaltet den Aufenthalt sehr unkompliziert. Wir haben von dort aus u. a. Mizen Head Station besucht, den Ring of Kerry und den Ring of Beara erkundet, man ist auch schnell in Baltimore, wo man bei Nic tolle Whalewatchingtouren buchen kann. Es war einfach toll und wir hatten einen unvergesslichen Urlaub. Wir kommen wieder!!!

Ort der Muße und des Genießens

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in den letzten 11 Jahren so viele Male auf Rock Cottage, dass ich garnicht weiß, der wieviele Aufenthalt es dieses Mal war. Auf jeden Fall war es das erste Mal im Winter und über den Jahreswechsel. Und es war phantastisch. Das Cottage ist wie geschaffen für eine Auszeit vom Alltag, als ein Ort der Muße, des Genießens und des zur Ruhe kommens nach einem anstrengenden Jahr.

Das Cottage liegt in West Cork, für uns dem schönsten Teil Irlands. Wir lieben die Landschaft und können garnicht genug davon bekommen. Die schroffe Felsküste, das Meer, die schönen Strände, der leuchtende Stechginster, die hügeligen Wiesen und natürlich die sattgrünen Weiden, auf denen zufriedene, glückliche Schafe grasen.

Apropos Schafe: Die sattgrünen Weiden hat man direkt am Haus. Hier leben sehr zufriedene Schafe, Esel und Hühner im Einklang mit Hunden und einem Kater. Und alle bereichern unseren Aufenthalt auf Rock Cottage - jeder auf seine Weise ;-)

Das Cottage verfügt neben einer ekzellent ausgestattenten Küche über ein Wohnzimmer mit Eßbereich und Kamin, ein geräumiges Badezimmer mit Dusche und einem Schlafzimmer im Dachgeschoß. Alle Bereiche sind liebevoll mit Bildern und Büchern dekoriert, so dass wir uns jedes Mal auf Anhieb wie zu Hause fühlen. Ein Fernseher, DVD-Player, eine Stereoanlage, ein Wi-Fi Zugang und ein Fön sind natürlich auch vorhanden.

Unser Dank gilt Barbara, der Besitzerin von Rock Cottage, die uns in all den Jahren eine liebe Freundin geworden ist. Danke für all die schöne Zeit, die wir auf Rock Cottage verbringen dürfen.

Unseren nächsten Urlaub haben wir übrigens gleich gebucht. See you in July ...

Great Super Quiet Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit in the area and loved the home! It was a bit cool in the evenings so we had a lovely fire in the small fireplace each evening.

We loved our stay in this beautifully renovated old stone home! Perfect for a couple who would like some peace and a change from hotels or B&B's on thier holiday!!

The kitchen facilities met all our needs and we always had breadfast and dinner back at our "home away from home" after driving to the Beara Pennisula (our favourite), Mizen head and around, Sheeps head for a hike, and to the ring of Kerry (oddly our least favourite)...

You can easily pick up groceries on the way home in Schull or Bantry (which had great shops both).... and we were lucky to get the summer Market on Sunday in Schull for some great local supplies our second day in the home.

The owner, Barbara was always very helpful, explained how everything worked and offered herbs from her garden as needed.

It is dead silent at night as you are on a farm about 10 km from town... a short drive to a pub etc. each direction!!

A peaceful break in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Our break in Rock Cottage was out of this world - Dunmanus Bay is one of Ireland's most unspoiled corners, and Rock Cottage is tucked away from the world on an estate of story-tale beauty and seclusion. We were delighted to be able to bring our dog Scooby, who made new friends with the resident dogs at this pet friendly venue. The well equipped kitchen enabled us to make the most of the fine food products for which the area is noted. We'll be back!

Erholung pur im Rock Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wir konnten es kaum erwarten endlich mal wieder in Irland Ferien zu machen, um Land und Leute und natürlich das feine Guinness zu erleben.

Unsere letze Reise, damals noch ohne Kinder, liegt doch schon etliche Jahre zurück doch eines war klar wir wollten wieder einige Wochen im Rock Cottage verbringen! Ob es unserer Tocher 2 1/2 und unserem Sohn 6 wohl auch so gefallen wird, wie uns?

Schon bei der Ankunft wurden wir von den vier freundlichen Hunden von Barbara stürmisch empfangen und nach kurzer Zeit haben unsere Kinder mit den Hunden Freundschaft geschlossen. Im Verlauf der nächsten zwei Wochen sollten sie dann noch einige Kunsttücke dazulernen.

Auf dem riesigen Grundstück, etwas zurückversetzt von der Hauptstrasse und somit absolut ruhig, leben auch noch so an die 30 Schafe, zwei Esel und natürlich vier Hühner sowie ein Gockel. Jeden Morgen durften sie die Hühner aus dem Stall lassen damit sie die frischen Eier einsammeln konnten. Was für ein Erlebnis für unsere Kinder.

Da Haus ist gross genug für uns zwei Erwachsenen sowie die beiden Kinder. Im Schlafzimmer im oberen Stock (2+1) hat auch ein Gitterbett für unsere Tocher prima Platz.

An jedem zweiten Tag haben wir die Umgebung erkundet und ausgedhnte Wanderungen unternommen. So z.B. an den schönen Strand in Barleycove der auch für Kinder ideal ist und anschliessen im malerischen Crookhaven einen feinen Fisch im Pub gegessen.

Ein andere schöner Ausflug geht zum alten Leuchtturm Mizen Head das ein spannendes Museum beherbergt. Wir lieben diese Stelle, besonders auch wenn es so richtig windig ist und die Wellen an die Klippen schlagen.

Viele schöne Ausflugsziele liegen ganz in der Nähe so der Sheeps-Head oder die mit einer Seilbahn erreichbare Dursey Island.

Das Besondere am Rock Cottage ist die unvergleichliche Lage, etwas abgelegen, eine kleine Welt für sich. Der ideale Ort um sich zu erholen und die Zeit mit einem Buch zu geniessen. Auch weil man sich um die Kinder keine Sorgen machen muss, sie tauchen immer wieder auf, wenn sie irgend was spannendes entdeckt haben.

Liebe Barbara, wir haben es sehr genossen deine Gäste zu sein und können es jedem empfehlen der die Ruhe sucht.

Wir kommen sicher wieder zurück.

Stunning views of the Atlantic and its beautiful sunsets can be seen from the top of the garden. The property is within easy access of Schull, only ten minutes drive away.

We can offer deep sea fishing trips as well as fly fishing (booking by prior arrangement). Other activities include golf, swimming, tennis, and cycling. There are many trails for walking and hiking, particularly on the Sheeps Head where you can hike through miles of breathtakingly beautiful landscape. or if you prefer water sports, golf or maybe whale watching or cruises to the islands , all available locally. The area has charming little towns and villages with festivals, country markets and music in the evenings in the local pubs.
