We found the house exactly as we expected from our previous visits, and we were very warmly welcomed by the lady who does the caretaking and provides the keys. We encountered nothing adverse during our stay - the broken DVD player that was reported by a previous guest has been replaced, so that we were able to entertain ourselves indoors even on the rainy days, of which there were of course a few, this being West Cork in September! This year we visited the Bantry Agricultural Show, last year it was the West Cork Chamber Music Festival. There is always something cultural and interesting going on in this area, and in between times there is always the Murphy's!! Wholeheartedly recommended.
