                                                          A wonderful castle in a magical setting!

                                                          Rincolisky Castle is a perfect retreat for a beautiful, peaceful and memorable holiday. We enjoyed our holiday in this charming, high-quality castle-tower with our four children (between 7 and 16) very much and we will never forget this wonderful, relaxing days. To sit on the top of the tower overlooking the ocean, the blue sky and the green hills let us do "nothing", just relaxing and admiring. The castle is beautifully furnished and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking with the high-quality Aga oven. Slow down and enjoy! Children had a lot to discover on this huge garden-ground and enjoyed the boots you can rent with the castle. It was a refreshment and a "renovation" for body, soul and spirit. It was so good, I'd prefer to keep it a secret! A truly memorable holiday.

                                                          A Fantastic Week

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          My wife and I spent a week of our honeymoon in this beautiful cottage just outside Skibbereen. It was a pleasant respite from hotels and moving about to have a set home to come back to each night and prepare our own food. Aside from issues with the lack of cable and internet, it was a beautiful oasis on an overall fabulous trip. We loved the experience so much that we hope to return someday either together, or with our future family.
