Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We spent our fifth wedding anniversary in Ilen Cottage. The cottage has everything you can possibly need and it's comfortable, clean and cosy. The hot tub is amazing and as film lovers we absolutely loved the cinema room (also because the weather wasn't great when we were there). Communication with Peter and Anna was easy. They've created a beautiful place. Next time we would love to try one of the tree houses!

We stayed in Treehouse 1 in Skibereen. We had a wonderful time, very quiet and private. It has everything you will need and a hot tub to unwind at the end of a lazy day. You have all the facilities to cook in or order food in. We took a taxi to Skibereen and ate in the Church restaurant one night and that was a lovely treat too!

Originally booked pre-covid myself and my partner eventually managed to re-book and go in Aug 22. Very helpful and understanding correspondence with the owner in resolving this. The cottage itself was lovely and well stocked with streaming services, sky tv, bluetooth speaker and unexpected champagne on arrival, all tied with lovely personalized welcome notes. Not to mention the hot tub! The only upsetting part was i forgot the oil for my morning fried eggs! All around great to deal with and in a quiet, peaceful location.

Stayed in the tree house for 2 nights and I have to say it was definitely well worth it. Absolutely spotless and some lovely small personal touches made it very special. Peter and Ann have the place beautiful. Perfect break away for any couple. I would highly recommend cottages for couples. M&M

Just back from our second stay at Cottages for Couples, stayed in Courtyard Cottage 2. Everything was immaculate. Such an idyllic spot. Quiet and peaceful. All the necessaries in the cottage on arrival for a cuppa and a bottle of prosecco which was very kind! The hot tub was bliss even in the rain and the jacuzzi bath was amazing. Loads to do in the area too. Peter and Anna run a wonderful unique spot for a cosy break away and we’ll definitely be back next year!

Peter and Anna have made a fantastic place to stay! We stayed in treehouse 1 and it was such a treat, I hope we will get to come again! They have made a lovely, luxurious accommodation and adding personal touches just makes it more special. The hot tub was a real treat. Definitely recommend!

Myself and my husband stayed for a few days for his birthday! We stayed in Newbridge cottage which was walking distance into town. The cottage itself was immaculate. We loved the chill out area and the cinema room. The hot tub was also fab and we made great use of it. I would highly recommend it.

Having waited so long to visit cottages for couples due to our wedding having to be postponed, I can honestly say it was so worth the wait. We couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon. The hot tub is a real taste of luxury, Peter and Anna are great communicators, with loads of little nice touches when you first arrive. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone that wants a nice quiet relaxing time with all your usual home comforts like sky, and Netflix. West cork is so beautiful, especially when you get the weather we did! We will definitely return and can now see why these cottages are so sought after. Hopefully we will be speaking to you again soon Peter and Anna, thanks again. Kevin and Sarah from Dublin.

We spent the weekend in Lassanroe barn and it was just spectacular. From the bottle of champagne waiting for us on arrival to our own private hot tub outside we couldn’t have asked for much more. It was the perfect weekend where we got to unwind and relax. Thank you Peter and Anna.
