We have stayed in Ahakista for the past four summers, the last three at Hillcrest Farm as we really can't find anywhere better. If you like peace and quiet then you will definitely find it here. The view, which can be enjoyed from the patio, overlooks Dunmanus Bay and is beautiful. There is a lovely, mature garden, full of character, trees and shrubs everywhere plus a really useful washing line! Also plenty of parking space. The house is comfortable and well equipped, clean and well maintained with plenty of useful kitchen items like cling film, food bags and bin bags. There is plenty to do on Sheeps Head alone. Our particular favourites are Ahakista beach and The Tin Pub, Kilcrohane Pier where the children love jumping into the sea, The Heron Gallery for lovely food and beautiful art, and walking out to the lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. We are also able to bring our little dog here, and she loves it just as much as we do, making friends with Shep and some of the other local dogs! Thanks again to Agnes and Joe for welcoming us to their lovely piece of paradise.

The property is clean and comfortable and the owner Stephanie is friendly and helpful. The views from the property are spectacular and we loved being able to get onto the beach and into the water within a minute of leaving the apartment. Stephanie helped us to hire a kayak for our granddaughter which she absolutely loved, and we found the water to be comfortable enough to swim in, which we did every day. We found it necessary to hire a car and enjoyed the many small towns and sights that largely make up this part of the Wild Atlantic Way. The scenery is amazing, the people very friendly and we found no shortage of places to stock up on supplies, or to have lunch or afternoon tea. We always enjoyed returning to the boathouse where we had Dunmanus Bay to ourselves apart from a heron that visited daily. It is hard to put into words the peacefulness and calm of the area. Without doubt we would recommend it to others, and we hope to revisit ourselves before too long!

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.
