                                    Another wonderful holiday at the River House

                                    5 of 5
                                    Dear Coleen and Charlie I just want to express my thanks again for allowing us to stay once more in your beautiful house in Skibbereen. It really is a special place. This is our third summer in your wonderful farmhouse and each year as the children are getting older, we enjoy it more and more. We had another fabulous fortnight unwinding in the peace and tranquility of the River House. My parents are from Mayo but I think they are transferring their loyalties to West Cork after their second visit. Fantastic food, weather and a beautiful house - what more could you need. Thank you again. Best wishes Aoife & Declan (Jack, Sam & Danny). PS : The nespresso machine was a great addition - made the mornings a lot easier...:)
