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.
