Perfect

5 of 5
This cottage was everything we could have asked for and more. Great location to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, beautiful beaches on your doorstep and quaint towns to visit. The owners Jacqueline and Jonathan made us really feel welcome and gave us ideas on where to visit, eat etc. We had amazing weather which was the icing on the cake. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Loved the stables. Clean and comfortable. Lovely ‘home’ to return to each evening after touring beautiful west Cork. Jackie and Jonathan very nice. Loved the dogs and the donkeys.
