Superior accommodation, lovely welcome

5 of 5
The Stables are just as lovely in real life as in the photos, perhaps more so. A reassuring newness is tastefully dressed in a warm, homely decor, cute and cosy. Our hosts were most friendly, calm and helpful, the facilities are well managed and the complex of buildings (and animals) has a wonderful charm. Bathrooms and kitchen are all pleasantly modern and the timber stove kept us aglow all night. We stayed in January when many amenities and cafes are closed but the surrounding landscape more than compensates in its stunning beauty. We found a handful of good restaurants still open, cruised the peaceful, empty roads by the sea and marvelled at the winter sun slanting over Sheep's Head and Barleycove beach, two nearby locations that should not be missed. Ultimately, we wanted to stay for longer. It's difficult to find self-catering accommodation of this standard in Ireland and we hope to return.

Amazing Location

5 of 5
The view was spectacular - even though the weather wasn't great for our visit it was amazing to watched the rain clouds move across the bay. Some fantastic sunsets as well. The house was very comfortable, warm, clean and cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you are likely to need when cooking for large groups and the welcome pack was very useful. Nice to know the owners are only next door if there were a problem, but not at all intrusive. It's a great base from which to tour and explore the surrounding area including Sheep's Head and Mizen Head, Bantry, Kinsale, Cork and Cobh. Schull and Barley Cove Bay and were our favourites! I would highly recommend this holiday accommodation.
