We found the house exactly as we expected from our previous visits, and we were very warmly welcomed by the lady who does the caretaking and provides the keys. We encountered nothing adverse during our stay - the broken DVD player that was reported by a previous guest has been replaced, so that we were able to entertain ourselves indoors even on the rainy days, of which there were of course a few, this being West Cork in September! This year we visited the Bantry Agricultural Show, last year it was the West Cork Chamber Music Festival. There is always something cultural and interesting going on in this area, and in between times there is always the Murphy's!! Wholeheartedly recommended.

Nit picking - could do with some TLC as it was slightly tired and for example, the oven could do with in depth cleaning. Extra hand towels wouldn't come amiss (luxury). Kenmare is a grand town with a buzz and plenty of bars, cafes and shops. There are also several supermarkets for supplies. Owners v helpful. All in all a really good holiday.

The location is also superb, right on the waters edge overlooking the bay. We didn't get the best of weather this time around, however the fact the the house itself offers so much in regards space and view it is easy to relax and chill and look out over the mussel beds with a glass of wine. The proximity of Durrus and Bantry make short trips out for lunch and dinner an attractive option and it is a great base to explore further afield down to Mizzen head or around the Sheep's head peninsula or up to Glengariff. Well worth a visit, I thoroughly recommend it and we will be back. Also Chris and Debbie are very welcoming and warm hosts and very helpful (but unobtrusive). The week flew in as usual. Might need to book longer in future! all the best Gerry
