Excellent location, only a few miles from Mizen Head.. Beautiful views in every direction. House was very clean, beds were comfortable. The owners live next door, and they (and their dog and cat) are very friendly, and at the same time, they leave us alone to enjoy our holiday. Very peaceful and relaxing.
Shopping: there are some small shops at Goleen, Schull and Ballydehob, but if you're looking for Aldi, Lidl, or Supervalu, go to Bantry (16 miles away) or Skibbereen (20 miles away). Bantry doesn't Aldi, but it has the other two supermarkets.
