“A Slice of Cottage Heaven!!!”
Reviewed 24 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had the wonderful opportunity to call Four Directions Cottage home for 3 glorious nights. Mick and Laraine were fabulous hosts who went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay...and we definitely did!! After a long day of driving from our first stop along the Wild Atlantic Way, to Castletownbere, we arrived at their cosy cottage. From the moment we stepped into the cottage, we felt at home and had a wonderful care package of homemade bread, farm fresh eggs, butter, tea, and jam waiting for us. What a treat!!! It was the perfect location with easy access to great hiking, too many points of interest to list here, and great pub/restaurant food. We would highly recommend their place to everyone!!! There was also a binder in the cottage that was LOADED with information and recommendations of things to see, and do. Our only regret was that we had to leave. When we are fortunate enough to return .... we know exactly where we'll be staying again. Cheers Laraine and Mick for making our trip to Ireland even more special by treating us to your home and hospitality. Thank you so very much for everything.

“Amazing views and a lovely host!”
Reviewed 26 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cosy and very clean cottage is at a stunning location, the view is magnificent! The cottage is really well equipped, it has everything you need; butter, eggs, milk, soap, books, dvd's, everything you wish for. There are a lot of leaflets with information about the ring of Beara in the cottage so you can plan trips in the area. The sheep in the surroundings are an extra bonus, especially if you can't sleep. Castletownbere is a 10 minute drive away from the village where you can buy your groceries, so a car is an necessity. Laraine and Mick are always at your service if you have any questions. They make a big effort for your perfect vacation. The only thing they couldn't manage for us was the weather....

“Great cottage, great location”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our family of 4 (with 2 boys aged 13 and 8) enjoyed a wonderful week in Four Directions Cottage. The cottage is old and extremely cosy, with wonderful attention to detail. The boys loved sleeping in the loft space and spent lots of time reading in their cosy beds. The location is perfect for walkers like us: a little further up the country lane where the cottage is situated starts the climb up Hungry Hill. We also enjoyed walking parts of the Beara Way on Dursey Island, and visiting lovely Derreen Gardens. The views over Bere Island from the cottage are amazing. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and we really appreciated the small touches (fresh flowers in the cottage, starter pack with milk and bread, wood for the fire). Would love te come again one day!
