The Sanctuary exceeded all our expectations, a beautiful property, in a wonderful location.. Super well equipped and comfortable. More DVDs, books, CDs and videos than you would ever be able to watch, listen to, or read. You really don't need to bring your own entertainment. The garden is amazing, the woodland slightly overgrown, but must have been a real treasure in the past when the owner lived there. There is a stream running through the rear of the land, this is so lovely. Also a large pond with ducks and moorhens. The nearby Blackwater great for fishing. We were seeing foxes, pheasants, rabbits and many garden birds. Nice to bring a feeder with you. The foxes really appreciate some peanuts and an egg or two. They were lovely to see. Some fabulous not to be missed trips whilst here is the Ring Of Kerry, Blarney Castle, Torc Waterfall, Jameson Distillery, Fota Arboretum and wildlife park, Ballycotton cliff walk, Mitchelstown cave, Mohon Falls, Mallow Castle White Deer, Cliffs of Moher. There are so many beautiful beaches, a week isn't enough really. We will definitely return some time in the future and can't imagine a better place to stay. Postcode for the property is P51H254 and a small red sign points you towards to the road the property is off.

The place is gorgeous and spacious.. Great location for tourin southeast Ireland. Difficult to find. must use satnav coordinates and TURN at the brown fence and then drive 200 meters on a dirt road. Green fence is on the right.

The Sanctuary was perfect for us.. Very spacious inside and out. The kids really enjoyed the garden, the huge attic playroom and the orchard(especially the apples). Also a huge library of dvds was available. Good location for day trips

We loved our stay at The Sanctuary, and it was a god start to see the environment, as well County Cork and Limerick, as Tipperary.. So much and beautiful things to see, lovely holiday.

A super property in the Irish countryside.. The bungalow was well equipped, warm and comfortable. All the rooms were of a good size and nicely furnished. The gardens are huge and very pretty, with short walks that can be done all on site. The local village has a small shop and chipper. Some nice local forest walks and lovely places to visit a little further afield. I’d highly recommend this property.

We could not fault the inside cleanliness of the property at all.. However, we did think that the outside painting of the bungalow was looking a bit tired. Also it would have been nice if there was a toaster in the kitchen. A very enjoyable place to stay.

Could not find the place, despite trying to follow the extreemly poor directions, ending up knocking on a strangers door for directions.. Once we did manage to find the property, we were unable to find the key. Having spoken to the owner, we were subsequently informed that you have been told of this problem, but have failed to amend your listings. Very Poor Show Sykes!!

The Sanctuary was a real find.. It was secure, well equipped and a great place to relax, whether staying in or going out. The local town of Killavullen was a stone's throw away, and the house was within an easy drive of Mallow and access to main roads.

This place was beautiful.. However, it was missing most of the necessities. There was only one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom (and they were partially used). No trash bags at all. The ad said wood was provided for the fire place, but there was no wood, at all. The washer was EXTREMELY tiny, and had only enough laundry soap for 2 loads. The stove was difficult to operate. It was an electric stove with digital buttons. No matter how I tired to press them they wouldn't respond. No Staples (food wise). Only had salt and pepper. No paper towels or napkins. We had ants starting to come in and invade the house. We never found the gate key pad for the inside of the property. so we had to climb the fence to get to the outside key pad to the gate every time we wanted to leave. I was very disappointed with the lacking necessities. The house was very nice as far as being decorated and painted over problem spots, but didn't quite hot the mark. So sad because this place could be so much more then what it was. Maybe the care takers aren't paying enough attention to this property, or maybe they are scrimping too much. Invest a little more in the Staples (a little extra tp, napkins, paper towels, trash bags, laundry soap, seasonings, cooking oil, wood, etc...) And this place would be perfect.

Everything went so well; Directions; Facilities; Instructions were great.. The location was wonderful, for anyone wanting to be on their own in natures own setting this is the place. There are great walks in the 15 acres. The house is very well appointed, whilst there was only the two of us (My Wife and I) It would sleep 6 comfortably. Worth every penny !
