There was four adults and four children and never felt that there wasn't adequate room. Our children range in age from 18months to 8yrs and it was safe and child friendly. The bathrooms are very modern and clean. Would have no problem recommending the property.

                                                                                                    Wow, what a wonderful week we all had. Our family travelled from three locations in England and met up here in this impeccable house in such an idyllic location. This house is in such a peaceful location, we didn't hear any noise other than nature. The views across the sea in the distance we beautiful at all times of day. We spent most of our time in the sun room, coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon and chilled drinks in the evening. We were so lucky to have wonderful weather all week (apart from a sudden hail storm on the Sunday) and so we took advantage of the large garden where we played cricket with the children (and the grandparents sipped drinks on the decked area). Clonakilty was a 10 minute drive away and we often popped there for supplies from Lidl and Scally's. Also in Clonakilty we visited the model village (enjoyed by the children and the adults) and took a train (on wheels) ride around the town. Beaches were also on out to do list and we particularly enjoyed Inchydony (where we enjoyed a mean at the hotel there on our last night - expensive but worth every penny). A short walk from the house was a lovely quiet pub where we enjoyed a pint (or two) of Guinness (quite superior to the Guinness in England). If you're here with children, the playground isn't too far to walk to and kept ours amused for an hour on a particularly warm afternoon. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all slept very well. We particularly loved the balcony doors. The children made good use of the toys in the garage and we found the rotary line so that we could wash and dry clothes. (Double peg it all though! It's breezy!) This home is great for family reunions especially if you have children with you. Everything is effortlessly close to hand here which makes it feel like home. Thank you so much for providing for us a wonderful home for a week in which we spent more time than elsewhere. We are all keen to come back again. Though it'll be hard to beat this amazing holiday that we still talk about almost two months on!

It really is a special place. This is our third summer in your wonderful farmhouse and each year as the children are getting older, we enjoy it more and more. We had another fabulous fortnight unwinding in the peace and tranquility of the River House. My parents are from Mayo but I think they are transferring their loyalties to West Cork after their second visit. Fantastic food, weather and a beautiful house - what more could you need. Thank you again. Best wishes Aoife & Declan (Jack, Sam & Danny). PS : The nespresso machine was a great addition - made the mornings a lot easier...:)
