cozy, comfy, beautiful region

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what I needed. Comfortable, clean, quiet, warm with the wonderful pellet stove, comfy bed. The kitchen was impressively stocked with any equipment an enthusiastic cook would need. The surrounding area is full of great natural beauty--you'll need a car to see it, though. Jane and her husband were helpful and welcoming (yummy soda bread!), and attentive to needs and questions. I would rent from them again, and would recommend to friends. Thanks for a restful week!

Recreative stay in a tidy, very spacious "little" cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in the cottage of Jane and Jim. The cottage is on their premise, there is even a BBQ Grill available next to a small pond behind the house. There is also a small private terrace available from the living room. The cottage consist basically of 3 rooms, a bathroom, a very spacious bedroom in the second floor and a living room with an open kitchen. Everything we needed was there including free wifi ,-)

Everything was very tidy and Jane and Jim are very friendly and helpfull. We need glutenfree food and Jane even took the extra mile to provide some glutenfree bread and some goat butter and milk to make sure that we have something there in the fridge that we could eat just in case we will not find anything glutenfree on our way! Good place to start tours to Cork and the "Ring of Kerry".

Wunderschönes und gut ausgestattes Cottage in Irlands Südwesten

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage ist absolut empfehlenswert; sehr gut ausgestattet und räumlich großzügig geschnitten - ideal für zwei. Die Gastfreundschaft von Jane und Jim Green ist taktvoll überwältigend mit großer Freundlichkeit und Herzlichkeit. Allein die Begrüßung mit frischen Nelken auf den Küchentisch und selbstgemachten Soda-Brot, Butter und Eiern ist besonders. Die Bedienung des Holzpellet-Ofen ist einfach und das Feuer vermittelt eine gute und warme Atmosphäre. Die eigene mit Hortensien und Palmen eingewachsene Terrasse erweitert bei geeigneten Wetter den Wohnraum. Für den Fußmarsch nach Durrus (10 - 15 Minuten) gibt es sogar Warnwesten, die auf der Strasse ohne Gehsteige sinnvoll und wichtig sind. Das liebevoll eingerichtet Cottage ist gut zu finden, auch wenn es keinen extra Hinweis an der Strasse nach Crookhaven gibt. Ca. 500 m nach dem Ortszentrum die Ausfahrt L8722 (nach links abbiegen) mit dem Schild JO-AL’S B&B nehmen und dann am BB vorbei bis zum Schild Ardogeena-House (rechter Hand) fahren. Beide Häuser - Familie Green und das Ferienhäuschen haben mittlerweile einen hellen grünen Anstrich. Es ist ideal gelegen um Süd-West Cork zu entdecken.

Vielen lieben Dank an Familie Green - wir kommen gerne wieder.

Little Gem in Durrus, West Cork

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a 5 night stay at Ardogeena Cottage which provided the perfect base to explore the beautiful West Cork countryside and Sheep's Head Peninsula. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. The memory foam mattress ensured a good night's sleep in the king bed which was located in the upstairs bedroom. There was always plenty of hot water and we made use of the washing machine once during our stay. It was lovely to relax in front of the fireplace at night with a glass of wine and plan the next days activities. Jane, the owner, greeted us on arrival and presented us with a home-made loaf of brown bread and 4 fresh eggs from her chooks. The cottage is completely private from the main house and the private courtyard would be lovely for eating outdoors in the summer. I have no hesitation in recommending Ardogeena Cottage for your vacation in the Durrus area.
