A Shining Example

  • 5 of 5

Basically for our first trip to Ireland this cottage exceeded our expectations. On arrival the owners greeted us with a welcoming bottle of red and a fresh-baked artisan loaf. And things only got better. The cottage was a delight. Beautifully furnished and comfortable. If the proof of really great accommodation lies in the ability to feel truly relaxed by doing nothing and just admiring the view, then this is just the cottage. Would I recommend it to friends? Naturally. But it was so good, I'd prefer to keep it a secret! A truly memorable holiday.

The most amazing home next to a working lighthouse in Cork, one of the largest harbours in the world

  • 5 of 5

Geez, I don't know where to start. The house itself on its own rights is stunningly beautiful. Then add that it sits up on a promontory next to a working lighthouse with the most incredible views of the Cork harbour and you have a vacation spot that is one in a million. And you're surrounded by history! The neighbors property has two old towers that were used as communication sites to signal ship arrivals in the 19th and 20th century. Marconi used them to test his radio technology and the tallest tower was the one that received the first messages that the Lusitania was sinking..... Can you believe it! The people living in the area are so friendly and gracious. And the owners of the house are the best hosts. They actually check on you to make sure everything is ok! In a five star rating world this place is an easy 10. We couldn't believe how fortunate we were to find this home. Easy driving distances to all the hot spots in the area. Great hiking paths along the coastline. Lovely villages along the way with great pubs and spectacular historic sites. We used the house location to drive to Waterford, Wexford, and the city center of Cork. And then we would come home to a peaceful, pastoral home on the sea. What else can I say. If you have an opportunity to be in that area of the world.....Stay there!👍👍👍

A ringside seat to watch Hurricane Ophelia

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days including the day that Hurricane Ophelia hit Ireland. Roches Point was the windiest place on the mainland. The seas were very dramatic and the wind was unbelievably strong. We felt perfectly safe in a very solid lighthouse keepers cottage and had the best location to view the amazing weather.

The house is really great - spacious, very warm and comfortable. Malcolm was an excellent host.

As everyone on here says - the views are amazing - especially in the midst of a hurricane!

Stunning views says it all! Tremendous place. 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic place. We had a great time. The place has stunning views just under the lighthouse. It's like being on a boat. We even saw Alex Thompson on his Hugo boss boat go out. The place is spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The view of the Celtic sea was amazing. We enjoyed watching the sea and the ships. The property was nicely renovated with everything we needed. The neighborhood and lighthouse were very interesting. The neighbors were lovely
