The location was amazing, looking out onto the bay. We were fortunate with brilliant weather for the majority of our stay, and we made the most of it by seeing as much as possible and doing lots of walking! The house itself was fantastic, very well equipped and warm even on the cold winter nights, the large fire was particularly nice. We have already recommended it to our friends!

The Manager, Margaret, told me the cottage had been completely refurbished and was just being opened up again for bookings - it is beautiful!! The views from the cottage is over the Atlantic Ocean and they are stunning. The photos on the website just do not do this place justice - its twice as good. The cottage has everything we needed for this to be a memorable holiday and we will definitely be back to this part of Ireland.
