    “This beautiful cost house is set in idyllic countryside - if you want peace and tranquility this is where to go .”


    The stillness apart from birds and soft rain was just Bliss. The house is well stocked with everything you need and very suitable to walkers and people with dogs - a good porch to leave walking gear as you come in and slate kitchen floors that are very forgiving . And even Irish soda bread awaited us. Plenty stocks of everything we needed for a week. There were three adults and a dog and we had ample space . Mary and Lorcan the proprietors could not be more helpful and are very accessible. Excellent location for exploring the breathtaking Mizen Head , the wild Sheep’s Head and wonderful Bantry Bay and the Ring of Beara and all the delightful islands nearby . A stones throw from delightful and colorful Ballydehob with its excellent pubs and cafes and if you need a bit more , bustling Skibbereen is about 15 minutes away - The Church restaurant is recommended but booking is advised especially on the weekend . We would definitely return and were sad to leave .
