( unlike other money grubbing holiday homes which charge for hiring towels etc ). Lovely garden, fabulous views .. Donkeys, rabbits, Shep the Collie Dog, swings for the children. Such a sweet cottage and a wonderful host Agnes. Scones and Jam for us on arrival. We were so lucky to have had nice weather which was a bonus. The only extra we paid was Euro 20 for electricity. Also free wireless internet. Would highly recommend. Thanks again Agnes. O'Neill Family. Dublin

The property is absolutely charming, well-appointed, and beautifully situated with uninterrupted views overlooking the sheep's head peninsula. It is easily spacious enough for large family groups. Unfortunately, the property was not quite right for us. Eileen the property manager was extremely responsive to our needs and offered to move us to a nearby property (Ballyvonane House), which we accepted. This is a stunning property, fitted to a high spec, suitable for a party much larger than our seven, again fabulous views. The location (of both properties) delivered all the quiet and seclusion we craved, and dark night skies, perfect for star-gazing, whilst also being close to a host of good restaurants - Blair's Cove and O'Connors are a must! We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

The house surpassed all our expectations; it was spacious, comfortable, superbly well equipped and had magnificent views. There were lovely walks from the house, basking seals on the rocks in the bay and a little beach within walking distance. Eileen, our caretaker could not have been more helpful and provided us with all we needed for 5 young children. We would recommend ordering an online shop to be delivered on arrival day, a visit to Bantry market and Bantry House, Barleycove Beach and Schull harbour. We also booked Clovis Ferguson of GubbeenGreens to come in and cook dinner for us adults.....highly recommended after long days on the beach and entertaining the grandchildren. And the sun shone every single day, it was the best holiday we have ever had.
