We thought we were in paradise! it was THAT good.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Springwell Cottage for Christmas - and all I can say is WOW!!! 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.

New Year in Ireland

  • 5 of 5

What can I say. We wanted a get away from it all New Year and we certainly got that and more. We found this on the website and liked what we saw but when we arrived it was totally overwhelming. The cottage has just gone through a total refurbishment and is amazing. It had everything we needed and was so comfortable.The views from the windows was stunning. Have to say Margaret (the Manager) was so friendly and helpful. We loved the log burner and we were just happy to relax in the cosy surroundings. We have booked to go back in the summer to explore this beautiful part of Ireland.

Erholsam und ruhig

  • 4 of 5

Schönes Haus, ruhig gelegen. Wir hatten eine sehr angenehme Zeit dort verbracht.

Einzigste Nachteil war leider die Hygiene, das Bad war leider nicht so sauber (Haare in Dusche), Kellerasseln im Bad (4 Stück) und im der Küche war die Bestwckschublase dreckig. Sowie in den Schränken mehrere tote Spinnen.

Owner's Response: The cottage is thoroughly cleaned on the departure of guests and in readiness for the arrival of the next guests. Any insects, i.e. spiders etc., can come in to a house anytime, I don't think you can class this as poor hygiene. Both bathrooms are also thoroughly cleaned and if there was indeed a stray hair in one of the bathrooms then I can only apologise for my oversight. You contacted us twice via email during your stay and no mention was made of this, indeed your group of young friends were delighted with the cottage. This detached cottage is beautiful inside and out situated in one of the most outstanding areas of South West Ireland and has entertained happy guests for many, many years

Wie im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, ein herrliches Cottage zum ausspannen und erholen. Die Ausstattung ist super, es ist alles da was man braucht und der Ausblick über die Beara Peninsula ist "amazing".
