“Margaret was a delightful, warm and friendly host.”
She took pains to ensure we had all we needed and was available to us throughout should we need anything extra.
She took pains to ensure we had all we needed and was available to us throughout should we need anything extra. She went well beyond anything we would expect including making us bread, cake and apple crumble, delicious and enjoyed by us all. We could have done with mirrors in two of the bedrooms to do hair and makeup but this did not mar our holiday.- Christine, June 2022

“We had a fantastic time in Ireland made all the better by our host Margaret and the cottage.”
The cottage had everything you would need and more. It was comfortable and immaculately clean. Margaret looked after us like we were part of her family, she left us soda bread, cakes, fruit and more. The only problem about the stay was we had to come home. This is by far the best property and best host we have ever had.- Diane, June 2022

We had a fantastic week there.- Julie, August 2021

Margaret was a perfect host- welcoming and available without being intrusive. The facilities were excellent- the waterfall shower in the on-suite was amazing! There was no microwave but we managed. The house was quite remote- it seemed to be an hour away from everything!- but the views were spectacular. I would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable holiday with a bit of sightseeing on the Beara Penninsula thrown in- Lisa, June 2021

“Location was simply superb surrounded by those mystical mountains and unforgettable scenery in Beara Peninsula.”
Caha Cottage exceeded our expectations, it was a beautiful house, so comfortable, clean, and particularly spacious with fantastic views. The property had been thoroughly sanitised. Everything required for family holiday was provided Margaret was an incredibly gracious and welcoming hostess, there was nothing she did not consider. A most welcoming 'starter kit' was provided together with home made queen cakes. Margaret went through, in great detail all the necessary information required to ensure a smooth and trouble free stay at Caha Cottage. She was available throughout our stay to answer any queries and surprised us mid week with the most delicious homemade tea brack! I would highly recommend Caha Cottage for your holiday.- Mary, September 2020

Plenty of room for us all to spread out and relax in, easy to spend a day in without going anywhere. 360 degrees of amazing views from every window.

All four bedrooms are very spacious with comfortable beds, a wonderful well equipped kitchen and two large reception rooms. Margaret was the loveliest kindest lady and her delicious home baking welcome treats were very well received. It is such a special place and we will definitely return. A trip to Bere Haven restaurant is a must for delicious food and views.- Fiona, August 2020

Wonderful views of the mountains and only a short drive to Castletownbere for shops and pubs or the other way to the pretty village at Eyeries.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Margaret is a lovely host, very accommodating, and so easy to deal with. A pleasure to stay here, and we can certainly give the highest recommendation to other guests.- Brid, July 2019
“Beautiful and expansive house in a very picturesque area surrounded by mountains with a view of the sea in the distance.”
Quiet roads all around ideal for walking. Large private garden which was ideal for the kids to play in safely. Within 5 to 10 mins drive of the villages of Eyeries and Castletownbere which have good shops and pubs. I would not hesitate to recommend to all.- Brian, July 2019
“Margaret and Paddy are wonderful friendly people who could not do enough for us.”
The accommodation was brilliant, including the very comfortable suites. If only I had this at home! This would be a lovely home to relax and take in the views and people who like walking. If you want to go touring the countryside you may find this a little far out but take advice from Margaret as this may save journey times. I would love to go again to spend time with them and enjoy the house.- Carol, June 2019
“WOW! We were very impressed by the building, the location, attention to detail, the incredible comfort and the very friendly Margaret and her husband who were there to help at the the start and throughout our stay.”

On arrival Margaret had baked goodies for us and the essentials like milk, tea etc all provided.The house is located in a beautiful area it is very quiet & scenic with lovely safe walks off the main road.It is situated between the village of Eyeries and the town of Castletownbere. It is an ideal house for anyone who wants to tour the Beara Peninsula. You can take a short ferry trip out to Bere Island or visit the town of Kenmare that is 40 mins away. Caha Cottage is a beautiful, clean, warm house with helpful hosts so I would recommend it 100%. K.Burke- Karen, June 2019
“Caha Cottage was brilliant.”
Pictures were accurate, check in was easy and the little touches were thoughtful. There was milk in the fridge, some homemade bread in the cupboard and fresh fruit. The house is large, warm and inviting. Two fireplace stocked with wood ( although the house is warm enough that the a fire is not needed) The bed is extremely comfortable and the ensuite shower is a dream. The location is rural but Castletownbere is quick 7-8 minute drive where there is everuthing you need. This was a perfect holiday.- Natasha, January 2019
“Firstly I would like to thank Margaret again for her incredible hospitality, along with her son Liam.”
The communication and helpfulness leading up to our trip, the welcome and the support and advice during the trip, were all fantastic! The most beautiful location; where the house is situated, the towns nearby and the small stops along the coast on day trips out. Castletownbere is a lovely town - everything you need is there and it is only a short drive away. Supermarket with fresh produce, pubs and restaurants, small shops and extremely friendly people! We took walks along the country lanes around the house, the scenery and relaxed environment is brilliant. We went as a family of 7, including a toddler, for 10 days over Christmas and New Year. Margaret decorated the house for us for the Festive season which was beautifully done and very special! The house had absolutely everything we needed. Especially for the little one, there were games, books, a high chair and a cot! We were greeted with freshly baked bread and muffins, there was milk and butter and some cereal to start us off with. The kitchen is well equipped if you love cooking. It had all the essentials and more. And lots of fridge and storage space! The house as a whole was so clean and tidy. It was cosy and warm. The living areas have lovely sofas and the televisions are Smart TVs. There is also a DVD player. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage space to unpack clothing. The beds were super comfortable and there was an abundance of towels and clean bed linen (and extra pillows!) The bathrooms well equipped - showers were lovely and there was also hand wash in each bathroom. Everything in its place. Beautiful home, lovely hosts and a perfect location. The warmth and hospitality made our trip! We will definitely be back.- Elsje, December 2018
“Caha Cottage was an amazing house.”
Very clean, comfortable and spacious. Had everything we needed and more.. Arrived to freshly baked wheaten bread, muffins, milk etc to start us off. Margaret even had games for the kids and cards to entertain us. Margaret went above and beyond. Very kind and helpful. The location was 5mins for Castletown bere. We had an excellent Halloween break.- Ciara, October 2018
“We could not recommend Caha Cottage enough!”
It is a beautiful and very comfortable cottage where everything has been provided to a very high standard to ensure an enjoyable and relaxing stay. The cottage is situated in surroundings that provide amazing views of mountains. It is so peaceful that the evenings are incredibly relaxing especially if you use the wood burner! The cottage was also handily situated only 15 mins away from the local town. Our experience was made even better because of Margaret who looked after us during our stay. Margaret was very friendly and went out of her way to help us or offer advice when asked. We had a brilliant holiday - the Beara peninsula is an incredibly beautiful place which we really enjoyed exploring. We even had a few days further afield such as Killarney (about 1.5 hours away), Sneem (1 hour 20 mins) and Kenmare (1 hour). On the Beara peninsula we recommend Gleninchaquin Valley Park, Bere Island and, if you’re into it, a trek with Lios Lara riding stables (only 5 mins from Castletownbere). At the end of our 2 weeks we wanted to stay for another 2!- Matt, October 2018
