Setting aside a delightful cottage sourced through Sawday's guide, where the only problem was damp, which did not suit my husband's asthma, The Phoenix is the best holiday cottage we have had in Ireland.. We have known Castletownshend for a number of years, but only visited when staying with members of my husband's family or elsewhere quite nearby in West Cork. The tranquility was very much needed and much enjoyed as was the steepness of Main Street. It was important to find somewhere which felt homely rather than being run purely as a holiday let and The Phoenix lived up to our expectations. It was well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Eimear, our 15 month old puppy, loved it too! We have already plotted a return visit!
Really lovely spot, the village is beautiful.. The house was great, v clean and spacious. Only thing I would change; the couch is terribly uncomfortable
We loved this house on the village street.. It was very well designed and appointed and we found everyone very helpful with any inquiries we had.
Fabulous house, spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you would need. Loved the open fire as weather wasn't great, the garden is huge with plenty of garden furniture and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Patricia was a pleasure to deal with and we will be booking again very soon.
Spent a fabulous week here over Easter. Lovely house, really well equipped and laid out. We were 2 families of 4 x 19 year old & 4 x parents with dog & the Phoenix house worked very well.
Really super location with the Castle, Mary Ann's and best of all Lill McCarthys on the doorstep.
So much to see in area - beautiful county!
We had a lovely week exploring West Cork. The cottage had a lovely airy feel, although we needed to put the heating on, well it was March and the weather was at times wild raining and windy! We made the most of brighter spells. The bed was so comfortable!
