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.

Myself & my boyfriend are just home from our wonderful stay in river lodge 1 for our 5 year anniversary. Peter & Anna were an absolute pleasure to deal with and the cottage was amazing. I would highly recommend cottages for couples and we will 100% be returning. Had the most relaxing time and looking forward to planning our next visit already!

Stayed in the Newbridge cottage, we wouldn’t reccomend more , fabulous location and the house is absolutely gorgeous. Lovely gestures such as Prosecco on arrival and other fine details were much appreciated and we can’t wait to come back.

Just back for a beautiful 2 day stay in Treehouse 2. Anna and Peter were wonderful to deal with from easy booking to step by step instructions and all the little finishing touches they added. Treehouse 2 was clean, cosy and well stocked with all necessary amenities, ample towels & a fully functioning kitchen, a beautiful bath, large walk in shower, stunning views, Netflix, WIFI and of course a hot tub. 5 minutes drive from the town boasting small cafe's, pubs, restaurants and a friendly rural atmosphere. Perfectly secluded for a romantic trip, we will defiantly be returning. Couldn't recommend Cottages for couples enough! Andrea & Lee.

Cant find fault with any aspect of our stay in Courtyard Cottage 2. Everything you could want for a short stay. The bed was so comfortable, the jacuzzi sublime and the hot tub, what can I say, with the stars up above and birds singing in the trees we had to drag ourselves out of it. Have no problem highly recommending Cottages for Couples and will definitely be back. Might want to review recommending 3 in 1 takeaway. The food was vile.

We had a wonderful, quiet and very cosy weekend at Riverbank Cottage. It was the perfect place for our Minimoon! Everything we needed was there and it's only a few kilometres to Skibereen town to stock up on provisions. Highly recommend.

Just back from 2 nights in Courtyard cottage 1. Gorgeous stay from a lovely note on arrival , a nice bottle of Prosecco waiting for us and a hot tub with the most stunning view. The host were so helpful before we even arrived we didn’t have to contact them once during our stay. Everything you need inside the cottage no need to be leaving ❤️ Will definitely be returning ❤️

Just back from a fantastic weekend there, everything was spotless clean and had everything you need. It was so relaxing and you don't even have to leave, as the takeaways deliver right to your front door. Will be returning.
