in ierland ist alles moglich!

  • 5 of 5

We hebben een geweldige week gehad in de lieflijke, comfortabele en prachtig gelegen cottage van Harro en Gisi. Het veelal prachtige weer heeft ook meegeholpen, maar zelfs bij slecht weer is het een hele fijne plek om te zijn! Omringd door een prachtige tuin kijk je vanuit de cottage uit op de baai. Sheeps Head is een prachtige schiereilandje met leuke dorpjes, lieflijke baaien en ruige heuvels. Vanuit Sheeps Head kun je gemakkelijk naar het al even mooie Mizen Head en naar het ruige Beara. Genoeg te zien, te wandelen en natuurlijk te rijden over de Wild Atlantic Way. Het is werkelijk 'amazing' om de Atlantische Oceaan te zien!

Het was heel aangenaam om Harro en Gisi te ontmoeten! en om de verhalen te horen over hun belevenissen in Ierland, 'wo alles moglich ist".... We hebben ons hart verpand aan Ierland en in het bijzonder aan deze plek, mede door de ontmoeting met Harro en Gisi.

We hopen echt hier weer terug te komen!

Dunmanus Bay Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed in such a beautiful cottage in such a lovely setting! The cottage itself was so charming and comfortable-perfectly laid out-and the property was a joy! The views were incredible and Harro and Giselle were gracious owners. We loved the area so much! Wish I was back...

Relaxing Retreat on Beautiful Sheep's Head Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

We intended to stay just a night or two but ended up staying four at this lovely cottage, on gorgeous Sheep's Head Peninsula. The owners were charming and friendly but equally respectful of our privacy. We were welcomed by the sight of the Canadian flag flying high to show us the way to the cottage - a wonderfully eccentric habit of the owner to welcome guests of many nationalities. The cottage is exceedingly well equipped and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and hospitality included access to a wonderful culinary herb garden. The master suite with its skylights to view the night stars was wonderful. The area is lovely with many signed walking trails. One of our most memorable stays in our entire month in Ireland. Thanks so much!

The most stunning view of Dunmanus Bay on the peninsula!

A most romantic, traditional stone cottage,architectually designed and built. Beautifully appointed with king sized bed in a large loft, with high ceilings, and a sitting area, wood floors throughout and some antique furniture. Large French doors open to a lovely garden filled with exotic trees and flowering plants, lovingly maintained by the resident owners of a large stone house on the grounds.

The charming village of Ahakista with it's harbor in only a short walk away, surrounded by quiet hills and boreens for walking and cycling.

It's only a ten minute drive to the quaint village of Durrus with it's four pubs and grocery shopping and only thirty minutes to the town of Bantry with it's fine shops, restaurants and weekly outdoor market.

This idyllic refuge is a place you'll come back to again and again.

Fishing pier 5 minutes walk from the house; go fishing with the owners boat.In addition, the local pup is serving fine diner
