This lovely house was well kept, homely and the garden was very well maintained.. The house was tucked away under the beautiful mountains including The Priest's Leap and was central to all the west cork peninsulas of Crookhaven Peninaula, Sheeps Head and The Beara Peninsula. We toured the peninsulas on the dry sunny days and went to nearby Glengarriff/Ballylickey on the showery days when the sun was out. Loads to do there including a trip to Garnish Island, The Ewe Experience, Quills Woollen Market and onto Molly Gallivan's in Bonane. The house was comfortable and spacious for our large family and the wifi and Smart TV were wonderful bonuses.
Really enjoyed the stay! The house is big with ample of space. We were two families with a total of 9 people and you could have fit in more. Overall, the house is in good repair and clean with a nice garden around it. There are even proper hiking trails and walks accessible right from there! There is absolutely no mobile phone reception in that spot which can be a blessing and a curse. The internet did work reliable however. I would have only one wish, that the kitchen would be furnished a bit better. We had for example only 6 breakfast bowls between the 9 of us and glasses were a similar issue. There is plenty of cutlery though. Access to amenities in the area is great too (Bantry and Glengarriff are only about 10 min away). Overall a really enjoyable stay! Thanks.
