    “My husband and I have just spent two fabulous weeks staying in 'The Schooner' on the Mizen Peninsula and what a wonderful holiday it was!”

    The cottage is spacious, light and airy, with fantastic views overlooking the sea and even the Fastnet Lighthouse from our bedroom window! The raised decking with comfortable outdoor furniture, was a great place to sit with a glass of wine and appreciate this view, even in October but if the weather got a little too cold (or wet) there is a sun room that shares the same view.

    The cottage is spacious, light and airy, with fantastic views overlooking the sea and even the Fastnet Lighthouse from our bedroom window! The raised decking with comfortable outdoor furniture, was a great place to sit with a glass of wine and appreciate this view, even in October but if the weather got a little too cold (or wet) there is a sun room that shares the same view. The cottage has extensive, private grounds, making it a quiet 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday without being isolated, as the Mizen village of Goleen is only a ten minute walk away (most of this through the owners' property and then along nice, quiet country lanes) where there is a butcher's shop, Post Office, General Food Store, Tourist Information, several pubs and the very fine restaurant, The Heron's Cove. 'The Schooner' has a well-equipped, large kitchen with plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans and has a well-stocked towel cupboard, so no shortage of fresh towels. The large, bright sitting room with a wood-burning stove, was a great place to get settled at night and this room has a long table with benches, which would be ideal for playing board games as a family. There is also a cozy sitting room off the kitchen, which has large comfy sofas and a coal fire. In the bedroom there was ample cupboard and wardrobe space and our bed and pillows were very comfy and we were offered fresh linen at the end of our first week. We found the cottage to be very warm and toasty, even on quite chilly days. The central heating heats the house quickly and when turned off, the house retains the heat very well. The bathroom downstairs has a bath and shower and the shower has a powerful jet. The upstairs bathroom has a bath and twin basins and a large well-lit mirror, which we found an added bonus, as the bathroom lighting in most holiday cottages is quite poor. We found 'The Schooner' a gem of a cottage to stay in, not only because of its situation and the fact that it is a beautiful cottage to relax and unwind in but also because of Brian, who was there to greet us, show us around the cottage and explain things to us and was full of interesting information about the Mizen and South West Cork but also because he went out of his way to help us with any queries we had during our stay and was ever so helpful and very friendly. All round, 'The Schooner' is a winner!
