    “The property was described as 'luxury' but I'm sorry to say it isn't once you step inside.”

    While the house is impressive externally and internally the rooms are exceptionally spacious, the creature comforts are very much lacking. While it sleeps 10, the lounge only seats 7 (the best room in the house), and only 6 can sit around the dining table in the kitchen/diner - which is a huge room with lovely views but lacks furniture and in particular comfortable chairs to sit and relax in. The majority of the crockery had seen better days - plates and bowls faded, odds and sods, chipped; cups/mugs are plentiful but a lot of them are heavily stained. Cooking utensils as in egg flippers, wooden spoons etc had seen far better days. The kettle looked very old and tired and certainly needs replacing. No washing up bowl and the sink plug doesn't stop the water from draining away quite quickly. While there's a dish washer you still need to do some in the sink. The tumble dryer filter hadn't been cleaned for ages and was thick with fluff. The sweeping brush had had it's handle snapped in half. No basket for taking washing out to the line. A number of light bulbs had popped before we arrived. The mattresses in the bedrooms were passed their best and the duvet itself, after we stripped the bed before departing, was very old. It was hard to tell if it had been cleaned. The pillows were the same. The majority of the flooring is tiled which is sensible given the house will probably appeal to those who like the out doors but a few scatter rugs would have made it feel a bit more homely. If you're looking for budget accommodation for a large party and don't mind the negatives then you'll probably have a great time. Putting all of the above to one side, the location is superb.

About the location

ADRIGOLE, COUNTY CORK

Castletownbere 10 miles; Glengariff 11 miles; Bantry 22 miles.

The small, scattered parish of Adrigole is strung along the head of a shallow inlet, on the scenic south coast of the Beara Peninsula. To the north of Adrigole looms Hungry Hill, the highest of the Caha Mountains, and to the south, Bantry Bay, ideal for fishing, sailing and diving. With the Beara Way running through it, and the high mountain roads in the area, Adrigole is perfect for climbing, hill walking and mountain biking, as well as a round of golf on the courses at Bantry, Glengarriff or Castletownbere, all with great scenery. The Healy Pass is on the doorstep, or enjoy Glengariff, while further afield is the vibrant city of Cork, where you can discover Blackrock Castle, Cork Opera House and the old city Gaol. A lovely location, ideally situated for discovering Ireland.

Note: Max 10 adults.
