About Jacqueline Sarsfield
I am a fun loving individual who loves travelling and meeting new people. My particular passion are the animals here at Rock Cottage and the beautiful unspoilt landscape. My interests are walking, photography & cooking. I love to go walking around this part of Ireland and exploring all the beautiful sites. My passion is to go to the local farmers' markets and cook with locally grown produce.
Jacqueline Sarsfield purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Jacqueline Sarsfield chose Schull
I spent much of my childhood here in Ireland having been born in Dublin. I moved full time to Ireland in 2014 from London.
What makes this Cottage unique
Having rented Rock Cottage for over a year, I decided to purchase this beautiful place and continue with this well established holiday accommodation business. The gardens, paddocks and surrounding hillsides are stunning, particularly the 360 degree view from the top of the garden overlooking Dunmanus Bay, The Sheeps Head and on the other side the hills and Mt Gabriel.

Rock cottage was really great.
Very nice cottage with everything you need.
We have stayed in a lot of locations in West Cork and Rock Cottage is the best to date. Lovely hosts and beautiful location.
This cottage was everything we could have asked for and more. Great location to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, beautiful beaches on your doorstep and quaint towns to visit. The owners Jacqueline and Jonathan made us really feel welcome and gave us ideas on where to visit, eat etc. We had amazing weather which was the icing on the cake. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
Delightful property. Very quiet and peaceful. Well appointed with every detail provided.
We enjoyed our stay so much we are already planning a return visit. Jacqueline and Jonathan were very friendly and accommodating. The cottage is lovely, cozy, and well appointed. We truly enjoyed our peaceful stay and absolutely loved the grounds and all the friendly sheep, donkeys, dogs, cats, chickens, and ducks. Mr. Daisy, the cat, is our new best friend! Many thanks, Jacqueline and Jonathan, for your most friendly hospitality. You provide an awesome travel experience that far exceeded our expectations and we are looking forward to an extended return visit.
