The cottage was scrupulously clean and in a very beautiful place.. The little coves about 15 minutes walk down the hill were the best places for swimming we have ever been to. Everyone was friendly and helpful. When the cooker broke down the landlord got it replaced the next day, even though it was bank holiday weekend and he was off on a trip himself. We love swimming, kayaking and walking, but if you wanted more of a driving tour and visiting attractions then this is also a great location, for both West Cork and East Kerry.
