We enjoyed a fabulous family holiday in Johannahs's Cottage
Johannahs Cottage is a cosy country cottage set up on the hillside overlooking the spectacular Derrynane Beach. It has the added bonus of being on a working farm ( though the cottage is set apart from the farm ) .Michael ,the owner and farmer, is always available with recommendations of where to visit and eat out and to provide bags of peat for the stove. Our children especially loved the farm dog Marco and enjoyed feeding Glick the pony .
We would recommend this cottage if you are looking for a rural experience in a spectacular setting .
