The location is also superb, right on the waters edge overlooking the bay. We didn't get the best of weather this time around, however the fact the the house itself offers so much in regards space and view it is easy to relax and chill and look out over the mussel beds with a glass of wine. The proximity of Durrus and Bantry make short trips out for lunch and dinner an attractive option and it is a great base to explore further afield down to Mizzen head or around the Sheep's head peninsula or up to Glengariff. Well worth a visit, I thoroughly recommend it and we will be back. Also Chris and Debbie are very welcoming and warm hosts and very helpful (but unobtrusive). The week flew in as usual. Might need to book longer in future! all the best Gerry
