The house itself can easily accommodate a lot of people with plenty of bed space, lots of different communal spaces and a huge garden at the front and at the back. A well equipped kitchen and separate dining room, 2 bathrooms and an ensuite toilet, plus a fab library on the upstairs landing with great views over the countryside. The owners have made the house very comfortable, with TV, internet, games and a wood burning stove. The house was easy to get to ( from London!) with a short flight to Cork and a pre booked car from the airport took us @ an hour, good roads and very little traffic. Theres lots of useful info about local activities, places to eat and pubs for the craic. There's lots to do locally. One of our favourite days was spent off the west coast near Baltimore on a whale safari - we saw dolphins and humpback whales which we will never forget. 2 of the adults are keen swimmers so we also spent time at the glorious local beaches on the Atlantic Way. Other highlights included the stone circle at Drombeg with incredible views over the fields down to the sea. West Cork has great places to eat, Clonakilty and Skibbereen are nearby and great places to visit - especially as when we were there the 2 Irish rowers were the cause of great celebration. Overall highly recommended for a great family holiday or with friends, with lots of activities for everyone in a great house, in a great location.
