It has the added bonus of being on a working farm ( though the cottage is set apart from the farm ) .Michael ,the owner and farmer, is always available with recommendations of where to visit and eat out and to provide bags of peat for the stove. Our children especially loved the farm dog Marco and enjoyed feeding Glick the pony . We would recommend this cottage if you are looking for a rural experience in a spectacular setting .

The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The seven of us could spread out and not get on top of each other when we were in. The views from the house were great over Valentia Island where we visited the Skellig visitor centre and walked up to Bray head. We also climbed Carrantuohill, an hours drive away, hard work but worth it for the views. Another highlight was cycling the Gap of Dunloe after taking the boat from Killarney with the hire bikes. It is just worth noting that the roads are not that fast so it can take a while to get places. Would recommend the house without reservation.
