    “Was a brilliant holiday in this beautiful little cottage.”

    Even though it was beginning of October the weather was beautiful. And at the end of the week we were treated with some brilliant photos during Storm Callum. Totally safe as the little inlet was sheltered and we were able to get some videos of the stormy sea from the window. Loved the open fire. Made it very cosy. Perfect bolthole for getting away from it all yet close to shops in Skibbereen. Good bus service to Cork city. WiFi good if you have O2 but scanty on Vodaphone. This is my 2nd visit ...
