Really Lovely Property in a Delightful Area: Great location; very private yet close to all amenities. Village Pubs; (Ross's pint of Guinness is second to none) some have Music most weekends. Fabulous dining experiences available; from Pub Grub to Gourmet Restaurants - the Michelin star 'Good Things Cafe' witih regular cookery classes during the off season - all within a short walk. Lovely pebble beaches a few minutes drive along the shore, sandy beaches 10 to 30 min drive. Wonderful walks; from a leisurely stroll by the sea to miles of gentle hill walking along The Sheeps Head Way.

Sheep's Head Delight

Sheep's Head Delight
  • 5 out of 5
This home was everything we hoped for and more. My wife and I, our 16 year old son, and three others (niece/ 2 nephews age 17 to 24) stayed for a week, and couldn't have been more comfortable. Plenty of places to sit and read, play cards and chat. Impeccably clean and well maintained, with a warm greeting from the owner on arrival. The house is on the lovely Sheep's Head Peninsula, with beautiful views of the bay, and the sounds of sea and the country (sheep on the other side of the hedge!) An easy walk into town for newspaper and bread in the morning, and a pleasant stroll home from one of the delightful pubs in the evening. We'll definitely be back--soon, I hope. West Cork is an undiscovered gem, with all of the beauty of the Ring of Kerry, Dingle, etc., but none of the crowds and tourist buses. The village of Durrus is thoroughly pleasant and real, nothing touristy about it. The nearby town of Bantry has good restaurants and pubs, and always something going on (the West Cork Literary Festival the week we were there.) Just a wonderful experience!

Charming property in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
I have no hesitation recommending this property - it felt like a home from home and is very well equipped. The view from the garden is stunning and the village is only a 5 minute walk away (bring a torch if you are planning to return after sunset!). The owners - Nuala and Fintan - are very helpful and easy to deal with.

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
Had used Owners Direct before and was pleasantly surprised. Nuala's property was amazing. The description was spot on. We had a fabulous weather which made the view of the bay even more stunning.

The village is as friendly as they come. Ross's Bar best pint in town, The Sheeps Head the best food.

The six of us that stayed were comfy, plenty of room and a large kichen with ample seating for all.

Nobody had any complaints. I would reccommend not only the property, but County COrk/Kerry and Skibereen Golf Course alsol.
Thank you Nuala & Fintan for a wonderful experience x

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
This bungalow was the best! It had everything and anything you could possibly need or want right at your fingertips. My family and I enjoyed our stay so much that we cannot wait to go back. The sooner the better!!! The owners were fantastic and so delightful. They gave us a warm welcome and when we got to the house they had a bottle of wine, bread, cheese, butter, milk and juice waiting for us. It was everything they said it would be and more. The village was great and the people were friendly and helpful. We could not wait to get back to the house after a day of sightseeing just to relax in front of a cozy fire and a comfortable bed. I would recommend this bungalow to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the ambiance of a small village with all you could need and want. Thank you for making our first trip to Ireland a special and memorable one.

Perfect In Every Way!!

  • 5 out of 5
It has been my parents dream to visit Ireland. We stayed with them at Nuala's and Fintan's house for 1 week and it was perfect in every way. The pubs were just a walk away and the food at the Gateway was superb. The house accommodated the 4 of us nicely and the views were some of the best in all of Ireland. Dave and I challenged ourselves to a walk up to the Durrus Cheese Factory our last day and were not disappointed. The owner greeted us as if we were neighbors and sold us the cheese we had come for. The walk is very scenic and is about 1.5 miles 1 way...although it will seem quite a bit longer than that! The location was perfect for day trips to The Ring of Kerry, Kinsale and Midelton for the tour of the Jameson Distillery. We all slept so well each night. The beds were very comfortable and warm. Fintan met us upon our arrival in Durrus at Ross's Bar and made us feel welcomes immediately. Wine, fresh bread and butter along with milk and juice awaited our arrival at the cottage. The Good Eats Cafe is just around the corner...perhaps we'll take a class on a future trip! If you choose to stay in this fabulous Ireland retreat you will not be disappointed! Make sure to stop into O'Sullivan's and enjoy a pint with Daniel and Angela...Say hi to the from us and enjoy!
