It’s a couple of hours from Cork airport so further away than we thought, and longer if you get lost as we did. If you happen to miss the turning you come in on the wrong direction and do not see the sign for the cottage. Needs one on the other side. Directions should cover the possibility of missing the turn off and taking the next. Advised not to use satnav but I’d say use it or google maps. There is a pub called Teddy O’Sullivans about 3 miles away which is a good walk or about 10 mins driving. Very friendly. Nothing else until Kenmare so it’s driving everywhere. Views are beautiful and it is very peaceful. Cottage is well equipped but surprisingly, there was no welcome pack so make sure you have basics with you or shop in Kenmare before you arrive.
We had a great week exploring the beautiful and wonderfully friendly Beara Peninsula with Dove Hollow as our base. Dolphins spotted - through the 'bins' from the bedroom window. Cottage is tucked away "behind the hill" and gives a real opportunity to switch off.
