Perfect cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the cottage. Beautiful views, very clean, and well equipped.

The Beara peninsula is amazing, and took our breath away. Certainly not as touristic as the Ring of Kerry, but definitely worth visiting.

We'll surely come back for a longer stay.

Comfortable cottage in good location

  • 5 of 5

Spring Well Cottage was the perfect holiday home for the two of us, perched in a picturesque ideal for exploring the area.

The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and very 'easy' to live in. The kitchen was well equipped with plates and cups etc and cooking items and the cooker was efficient, a bonus was the dishwasher. The wifi was perfectly usuabke for emails and social media use and a DVD player was available, I would suggest that you take some of your own favourite films, the collection at the cottage was not a kRge as some other places we had stopped.

We have stopped in the area on numerous occasions so knew what to expect from local amenities, but we were sunrises at how well placed the footage was for access to local pubs,cafes and restaurants the nearest being only 15 minutes drive away.

Communication with the owner and caretaker was very good and reassuring to know that someone was on hand if there were any problems, of which we had none.

The peace and quiet and the fantastic vista made this the perfect place, whilst not being totally isolated either.

We plan to return and holiday at Springwell sometime soon.

Fantastic place. Stunning views. Close to fantastic hidden beach and many walks. A week is not long enough.

Would highly recommend it. Very good value.

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.
