                                                              We had a very comfortable and peaceful stay. 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.

                                                              A beautiful cottage set in ideal surroundings!

                                                              Rock Cottage proved to be exactly what we were looking for, and more! The owners Jackie and Jonathan, made us feel very welcome to their idyllic piece of West Cork as well as allowing us the opportunity to meet their growing menagerie including donkey's, ducks, chickens and cat. While the cottage offers all you need for home cooking, it is also within a short drive of a variety of decent restaurants serving great food, Blair's Cove House and The Herons Cove in Goleen to name a couple. If you are looking for a peaceful escape, complete darkness at night and waking to birdsong, look no further. My wife and I agreed this has to be our best Holiday Cottage experience to date, in arguably the most beautiful part of County Cork.
