We wanted for nothing except more sunshine! It was a delight, morning and evening, to sit at the dining table admiring the stunning view. Coming back to the cottage, after our walks and drives, was a pleasure. We highly recommend the local Emlagh Loop walk. 6k, taking in beach, bog and forest. Would return in a heartbeat.

House has bedrooms and bathrooms on main floor and upper floor. Good, well-equipped kitchen. Large loft area good for kids. Washer and dryer work well. All rear windows have excellent water views. Easy access to Portmagee (launch point for Skellig Michael boats) and all of the peninsula. Nearest towns of Ballinskelligs and Dungeagan are very small and offer just a few services. Waterville, just 10 minutes away, has more services and shopping. Killarney National Park only 40 minutes away. Owner was communicative, easy to reach and offered good suggestions of where to go and what to do. Wifi was generally good, but signal weak in some parts of house. Beware special rules regarding trash and recycling bags. Overall, good value for the money. Strongly recommend.
