Der Garten ist herrlich mit vielen schönen Ecken zum lesen oder einfach die Aussicht zu geniessen. In der Umgebung gibt es genug zu sehen, man kann schöne Wanderungen machen und wer möchte ist in einer guten Stunde in Cork. Was einen Aufenthalt in Mulroe Cove aber vor allen Dingen auch sehr angenehm macht ist Stephanie, unsere Landlady. Sie ist herzlich, sehr hilfsbereit und vor allen Dingen sehr sich selbst. Mulroe Cove House, aber eben so das Boatshouse und das Studio können wir jedem sehr empfehlen.

The photos on the site don't do it justice at all! The beach was by my doorstep and as a winter swimmer I was delighted to have a private beach ten paces away. The house was comfortable and well thought out. I can't think of anything to fault here. I could have spent my entire holiday looking out the window.
