The Manager, Margaret, told me the cottage had been completely refurbished and was just being opened up again for bookings - it is beautiful!! The views from the cottage is over the Atlantic Ocean and they are stunning. The photos on the website just do not do this place justice - its twice as good. The cottage has everything we needed for this to be a memorable holiday and we will definitely be back to this part of Ireland.

I don't think I have ever been anywhere as beautiful as this little slice of heaven before! The cottage was immaculate and had every appliance we could need during our 5 day stay. Whilst the cottage itself is old, the appliances are certainly not. We were able to wash and dry clothes, enjoy hot showers and baths, and store all of our food in the fridge with no worries at all. The cottage is situated in the rural village/hamlet of Ahakista and the true beauty of this area is that it is totally unspoilt. There is no noise pollution, just the sounds of birds and animals. The scenery is spectacular and everything you could need is nearby - from woodland, seaside to shops and restaurants. The children spent 5 days running around outside away from technology and the lure of TV, forgetting about the worries and pressures of school. My friend and I managed to read, colour, walk and explore and enjoy every second of our children. Listening to them laugh and play, engaging with nature and reading together is something that cannot be compared to anything. No amount of iPads, TV's or phones can even begin to match this type of joy! The cottage was cosy and warm, we made use of the lovely fireplace and spent a lot of time searching for fairies in the garden! We woke up to rabbits on the grass and the friendly dogs belonging to the neighbours sitting by the benches. We took walks to see the donkeys and to the nearby pub for lunch, we took spectacular walks to see the stones on the hill (the name escapes me!) and we read stories with our tea and toast. We left the cottage rosy cheeked, healthy and wishing the 5 days could go on forever. Cottons Cottage is our new love and I recommend this break to anyone and everyone. Artists, authors, parents, children, couples, workaholics, hikers... no matter who you are or what you do then Cottons Cottage is an absolute must!

Well situated for a peaceful getaway while being in reach of town with shops and restaurants. The 'private' beach was only a few minutes down the road and offered protected water for swimming and relaxing the day away.
