Clean & tidy with an old world rustic charm, lovely open fire which we didn't need to use as the weather was brilliant. Kathleen the host very informative and helpful with details of local sights and directions. Great base to explore the Beara Peninsula which has some of the most outstanding views I have ever seen. Close to both Bantry & Glengariff which are lovely towns. If you do one thing while visiting the area, drive the coastal road from Glengariff-castletownbere-eyeries, onto Lauragh, drive up over the Caha Mountains past Glanmore Lake, view from the top is immense with more jaw dropping views on the way down over the Healy pass.

Comfortable bedrooms and excellent kitchen facilities and equipment. Assistance and response of caretaker was superb. Located next to an absolutely delightful (very short but challenging) and beautiful golf course. Excellent shopping with a couple of kilometers and convenient to the larger community of Bantry. We frequently rent homes for a week or two and this was among the very best.

With 4 large bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms it met our needs very well. This is a traditional Irish home and reminded me very much of my childhood holidays to Ireland. The views are stunningly breath-taking, the lounge and two of the bedrooms look out over Bantry Bay and Widdy Island. It's a short drive to Glengraffi, which has a few shops, pubs and some excellent restaurants. Prefect retreat, very peaceful. Great walking and site seeing, friendly neighbours if you get to see them. The owners are really lovely and helpful. We will definitely return.
