Perfectly equipped and more than enough space for our group of 6 adults. Perfect starting point for trips to the "points of interest" all over the peninsula. Many thanks to Carol and best regards from Germany

The owners have spared no expense in refurbishing this old farm house with the highest quality appliances (kitchen and laundry), bathroom fixtures, bedding, decorations and it even had a pool! We didn't have the weather to utilize the pool, but we did enjoy sitting by it and taking in the spectacular ocean views! The size of the cottage fit our family of 4 perfectly (kids' ages were 6 and 8). We added the studio to accomodate another friend traveling with us. We traveled to all three peninsulas (Beara, Sheep's Head, and Mizen) by car for daily hikes. The scenery was spectacular with lots of cliffs (much nicer than the Cliffs of Moher!). We dined in the town of Bantry which is filled with wonderful restaraunts. The owner, Julie, was delightful to work with right from the start of the booking. She also gives you loads of information on things to do and restaraunts to go to. At the end of the day, it was always so wonderful coming back to the cottage and collapsing in those beds or sitting on the leather sofa next to a roaring fire in the stone fireplace. We had a wondeful stay on the Sheep's Head peninsula and highly recommend this property.
