( unlike other money grubbing holiday homes which charge for hiring towels etc ). Lovely garden, fabulous views .. Donkeys, rabbits, Shep the Collie Dog, swings for the children. Such a sweet cottage and a wonderful host Agnes. Scones and Jam for us on arrival. We were so lucky to have had nice weather which was a bonus. The only extra we paid was Euro 20 for electricity. Also free wireless internet. Would highly recommend. Thanks again Agnes. O'Neill Family. Dublin

The weather was great and the views from the cottage were superb. Anyone who wanted a quiet and peaceful stay, this was an ideal cottage. Plenty to do and sea within a reasonable distance with the nearest town about a 10 minutes drive away. The cottage was clean and tidy and had everything that you needed for your stay. Walter and Josephene were perfect hosts. We had visits from their pets, the goats and the pig. The cows greeted us every morning over the fence. The local pub in Schull was great and the food was super.

Its an ideal spot for messing around by the water, beachcombing, taking the odd cold dip and bird watching. We wanted a week of not doing too much and this was the perfect spot. The accommodation is super, the outdoors almost enters into every room so you really feel the fresh sea air. We didn't really see anyone while we were there and this suited us. The Mizen head Peninsula is stunning for exploring and you can easily just spend the week in this one area. It's so nice, I really don't feel like telling too many friends how lovely it is. It's so unspoilt. If you're arriving late in the dark, I would advise to take a look at the detailed directions as the roads are small and you can easily change route. The gateway could easily be missed too. The property is clean and nicely furnished. We were hoping there might be a small welcome basket with bread, milk etc for the morning as we had quite a journey getting there and were too late to get to a supermarket as it was bank holiday too. That would have been a nice touch as we've experienced that before.
