Accommodation was perfect for us, because we love old cottages and as seasoned visitors to the area, we knew the village already. All our requirements catered for. Perfect base for those exploring the area. Car is a must plus a good pair of walking shoes, if you want to get the most out of your holiday.

We were very near the Beach and all the nearby touristic attractions. The Kids loved the experience and are still talking about the Holiday weeks later. The House was so comfortable and had all the facilities and comforts you would expect at home. We had a huge Garden area to the side of the house, which proved to be a safe play-area for the Kids. Also in the Village we had access to a Kids Playground, which we used most days. We loved the Pilgrims Palace Restaurant in the Village Centre, food was Fab and very well priced. Also don't leave Rosscarbery, without tasting the Food in the nearby Celtic Ross Hotel, a few minutes walk from the Holiday Home. Try the Chowder, you wont be disappointed. Must not forget to thank our host, Siobhann who went out of her way, to make this a remarkable and memorable Holiday. All in all a very rewarding and pleasant Holiday.

This house has maintained its old style charm, as well as having all the mod cons and was exceptionally clean and had all the home comforts. The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely welcoming touch. Ideal quiet location with parking, 5 minute walk to great seafood restaurants, bars and bay area/beach of Bantry town so no worries about driving home after a few pints, Taxi only 5 Euro from town to house . Great vantage point for touring West Cork, Wild Atlantic Way and Beara Peninsula. Owner extremely helpful and approachable. Would highly recommend for both a summer or winter break..
