this is one of the reviews that you don't really want to be doing because you want to keep the secret of the place to yourself! But Josephine and Walter really deserve to have the word gotten out about their place, so here goes:
We spent a week at the holiday rental in July, with our 2 girls (6 and 8). The house is very comfortable and also beautiful, with wonderful views and all set up for a family of 4, including tons of board games which my 8 year old loved.
My 6 year old loved "helping" at the farm - mainly carrying the (slightly terrified) ducklings from one cage to the other. In the evenings, we would have a family walk with the resident billy goat, and the kids both were so charmed with it they insisted they'd rather have a goat than a dog. There are paths on the property that lead to some nice ocean views, through the goat pasture, and it's great fun for the kids. There's also a playground, and there were 2 nice dogs, which is a plus with my kids.
In short, we liked it so much we would love to return. The town of Schull is nearby, where they have a fun farmer's market and a bunch of restaurants and boutiques that make for fun strolling. Barleycove beach is a short rive away. For smaller children, there is another great beach even closer than Barleycove.
thanks for a great stay!
