Fabulous holiday, lovely hosts, great cottage, amid the cows. A find for us.

  • 5 of 5

An adventure from the start, how beautiful is this area! Loved the cows, and the countryside. Very quiet - just what we like. The hosts are most welcoming and helpful. We had a great week exploring the area.

Lovely cottage with great view and lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was all I could hope for and we felt at home immediately! Dunmanus bay is beautifull at any time of day as well as the rest of the surroundings, we can also recommend the Sheepshead walking and the Ring of Beara! Violet is a great host, helpfull and generous (and a great cook!). We surely would recommend it to friends and want to come back ourselves also! There is still so much to see en enjoy!

Lovely and secluded but with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at Fortview Cottage for 3 nights on the last leg of our 10 day Ireland trip this past June. We stayed at 2 other cottages during the trip and this cottage was the most lovely. It has that rare combination of up to the minute conveniences (e.g. Wi-Fi) and rustic authenticity (e.g. salvaged stones exterior). And we loved the location at the edge of a pasture with our own cows to watch and many country lanes to explore. The Connells were helpful but unobtrusive, the place was spotless, the welcome wine was a classy touch, and we would not hesitate to return and to recommend the cottage to others.
