    “The holiday was lovely, and I would recommend the cottage to anyone, my only two problems were with Sykes.”

    My first problem was that there was no email address in the contact details so Sykes could only be contacted by phone. With Covid this proved incredibly difficult and time consuming. By providing an email address you could make your customers lives so much easier. ...

    My first problem was that there was no email address in the contact details so Sykes could only be contacted by phone. With Covid this proved incredibly difficult and time consuming. By providing an email address you could make your customers lives so much easier. (I imagine it is also very hard on your customer service staff continually having to deal with people who have been on hold for hours.) My second issue is that you were renting Irish cottages primarily to UK customers, without mentioning on your website that they would be required to self isolate for 14 days on entering the ROI. You have links to the UK government websites on your site but not the ROI one and when I finally got through to your representative he was completely unaware of this requirement. I live in Ireland myself and was reassured when your rep told me that the people in the house the week before me were also Irish, which was the only reason we went ahead with the holiday. However when we got there I asked the neighbours and they confirmed that there had been non-nationals staying in the cottage over the summer who did not appear to be quarantining. The first they probably heard about the requirement was when they arrived in Ireland. I have already spoken to your rep about this before we went on holiday, hopefully you are now putting this information on your website. Other than that everything was lovely - great cottage, great caretaker, excellent customer service rep when I eventually got through to him. My only problem is with how you are managing the business and I'm afraid on that basis I absolutely could not recommend you - sorry! Best Regards Gervaise

The property

Carrigaholt 3 miles.

This charming cottage is a breath of fresh air, located within the picturesque location of Carrigaholt and wrapped in sea views.

Hosting three bedrooms, this retreat is ideal for a set of couples or a group of friends to visit at any time of the year.

Enter into the porch and through to the sitting room where you can rest throughout the day and enjoy some peace and quiet.

The characterful fireplace with electric woodburner bring warmth to the room, so you can feel right at home from the off-set.

Two double bedrooms are knitted together with patterned bedding, and the freestanding wardrobe and bedside tables compliment the layout well.

The second room comes complete with an en-suite for your convenience.

If you are looking to house an extra guest or simply somewhere for the children to stay, the single bedroom is equally as pleasant.

Further round a utility room holds those essentials you may need and a family bathroom hosts both a bath and a shower, elevated by all white fittings that go hand in hand with the black tiles.

Lastly, a well equipped kitchen is a homely place to prepare breakfast through to dinner with enough space to socialise.

French doors open to a courtyard so you can wander outside and take in this magnificent location.

The village of Carrigaholt features a ruined castle and offers a shop and a handful of pubs, and a restaurant.

There is also a beach, which is ideal for swimming, along with sea fishing opportunities and boat trips for dolphin watching.

The town is also the starting point for the Loop Head Drive along the rugged Atlantic coastline, which offers breathtaking coastal views.

Everything you need for a heart warming stay.
