Great family holiday house

  • 4 out of 5
We (2 adults and 3 kids) spent 2 weeks in the cove in July. we have been to Baltimore many time but not in this house before.
The location is fantastic - right by the cove so very safe for the kids and when the tide is in a great place to canoe and swim . Very safe and whatever the weather the kids amused themselves there.
The house was great - lots of space with a large garden and plenty of garden furniture. Inside very spacious with everything you could need and more! Great space to hang out in if the weather is not good. The centre of the village is only a short walk away.
Great place - recommended!.

Fantastic house within a stone's throw of the sea.

We stayed here with friends who rented the adjoining house. Everyone was delighted with the standard of the accomodation. The houses are very homely and well equipped. Everything from deck chairs, picnic blankets and a fire log for the open fire was provided. Frances also provided useful basics such as soap, dishwasher tablets etc for the kitchen. The houses were clean and well maintained with lots of nice touches such as nautical pictures, a supply of books, magazines, binoculars, and even a few DVDs. The bedrooms are comfortable, with plenty of bedding provided. The houses are heated with storage heaters, which warm the houses well, but it was cold on the first night as the houses hadn't been used prior to our arrival. The upstairs bedrooms & bathroom heat up quickly as the heaters upstairs provide immediate heat.

Both of the houses have identical kitchens, which are extremely well equipped & very comfortable dining rooms, which open onto patios where there are picnic benches. There are also picnic benches in front of each house. The location of the houses is ideal for all ages as it is directly in front of a little cove. You can sit back & read the paper or your kids can play about in the water. The garden of the house is safe, with gates which can be firmly closed in order to prevent small children from escaping!

The houses are less than a 5 minute walk from Baltimore village, so you couldn't really get a better location. En route to the village there is a lovely playground, which looks out at the sea. There is a small shop in Baltimore village & the nearest supermarket is Supervalu in Skibereen.

We would highly recommend these houses as an excellent location for holidays for all age groups. Also, while you are in Baltimore, treat yourself to a trip on Con & Mary Minahane's 50 ft yacht - Baltimore Yacht Charters. Don't be put off by the cost online, give a phone call & they will do their best to accommodate you. You will be treated to Mary's homemade scones & jam when you stop for a break.

All is all, this is a great holiday rental, which is homely, comfortable & relaxing. It provides a great base for touring West Cork & also provides the perfect place to kick back & relax.

Wonderful house with fabulous view

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this lovely house for one week in May 2011, first attending the great Baltimore Fiddle Fair Festival and subsequently using Baltimore as the starting point for many one day trips into the wonderful landscape of southwest Ireland.

The house is wonderful. It has a very very well equipped kitchen, plenty of seats inside and also outside. We used to start our days with a self-made irish breakfast in the morning sun enjoying the sea.

The pubs and restaurants of Baltimore are all in walking distance, to walk to the village center at the harbour only takes five minutes. Prices are reasonable and the local fish is excellent.

We particularly enjoyed the walk to the beacon on a quite stormy day, but Baltimore is really a very good starting point to explore southwest Ireland. And Frances' house is a really nice place to relax in the evening, either at the fireplace or after a short walk with a stout in the pub.

Ideal holiday location in Baltimore

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spent a great relaxing holiday in this superb house. We know Baltimore well but only recently discovered this property was a holiday house.

The house was even better than we anticipated, very comfortable, well maintained and equipped. Great lounge, very well equipped kitchen, excellent dining room all made our stay very enjoyable. Nice touches are the wide selection of books, DVD's, binoculars to watch the seals, herons and other wildlife found just over the hedge in the Cove. Furniture and fittings are of super quality, the open fire excellent.

It is rare to find an owner who was as helpful and kind as Frances who went out of her way to ensure our stay went as smoothly as possible providing service over and above our expectations. Fantastic Irish hospitality!

Baltimore is an excellent holiday location whether you want an 'all action' holiday sailing, diving, powerboating, walking, visiting the islands or if you want to just 'veg' and watch the world go by enjoying a steaming bowl of chowder or crab sandwich and a pint of the 'black stuff' sat on one of the barrels outside Bushes in the square just a short walk up the road. The square is just 5 mins away from the house but I recommend you allow much more time though because you will soon find yourself pausing to take in the fabulous views, watch the boats in the harbour or the ferries scurrying betwen the islands or chat to the many friendly people you meet on the way who are always happy to spend a while chatting or sharing a joke.

Although you do not need to venture away from Baltimore and could happily leave the car 'at home' during your stay there are many great places to enjoy a meal or a pint. We have many 'favourite places to eat and visit' but there are so many excellent places mentioned in the visitors book at the house you will have to come back many times just to enjoy them all. We also ventured up to Killarney this time via Bantry. The trip over the Caha Mountains and the switchback drive down through the Killarney National Park from Kenmare are something else, but make sure you stop at the shop at Molls Gap, the view from the restaurant is amazing and the cream cakes something else!

My wife and I have and will continue to recommend this house to friends, family and anyone reading this review. It's location on The Cove, a short walk from the village square ensures a peaceful holiday in one of the best places in Ireland.

Baltimore Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I and our three small children (ages 18 months to four) recently stayed here and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. The living area was spacious and the kitchen very well laid out as well as being bright and airy and very well equipped. There was plenty of safe outdoor space for them to play and having the sea across the road provided a lovely view as well as being great fun for them with plenty of opportunities to paddle and play with their fishing nets. The house was well located within a few minutes walk of Baltimore village. I would also recommend this as a possible rental for two families who wish to holiday together.
