“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in this cottage for two weeks in August and would recommend it without hesitation. Excellent communication with the owner and plenty of information regarding local activities and sights. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and really well equipped. A car is necessary and we had wonderful day trips to local beaches, towns and villages. There was no problem keeping the two children occupied and feeding the horses at the end of the garden quickly became part of the morning routine. This is a lovely part of the country with beautiful scenery and good restaurants. The local surf school at Ballinskelligs beach was a major hit for the kids " The best summer camp ever". Overall a lovely holiday, great accommodation and highly recommended.

Delighted the kids enjoyed their holiday. Everybody is happy if the kids are happy. The area, restaurants and beaches are amazing and it definitely is a great location to get away from it all. Hopefully you will get a opportunity to come back.

“Perfect, Ideal and stunning views”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We searched for a cottage in Ireland with a private hot tub for a week over new year and came across cuanbeg. I can say we are over the moon we did. It is in an ideal location for a quiet family break, the cottage situated on it's own with the most stunning views all round. It's a short distance away from everything you need from supermarkets to restaurants and pubs. The hot tub is ideally situated to get the best views. With having 2 young children it was great and spacious and they could make as much noise as they liked without disturbing anyone. There is so much to do (more in the summer as things were closed for the winter season as we expected). The owners of the cottage were super and went out of their way to accommodate our every need, especially for the kids and the communication was fantastic from beginning of booking to the end of the stay. I would recommend this to anyone for a break away from everyday life and you can be in a relaxed, heavenly place with views you can not even imagine from Coastal and beaches to mountains and hills. Definitely a place we will look at going to again in the future.

“Fantastic house in a beautiful location. We had a lovely time.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband, myself, our two teenage children and my husband's sister had a wonderful stay at Cuanbeg. The cottage was welcoming. The weather was wonderful. We had a fantastic day on Derynane Beach, a day on Valentia Island - beautiful - and a magical day on Skellig Island. Loved this part of Ireland and would definitely return. We enjoyed seeing John, the farmer tend his cows and when my husband vanished for an hour we found him at the bottom of the lane chatting to John. Very friendly, laid back place. Of course, due to my daughters insistence on booking a cottage with a hot tub, this was our highlight on returning after a busy day, to sit in and enjoy the bubbles and the view.xx

“Fabulous Cottage, Fabulous location, Fabulous people”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

My husband and I spent a weeks holiday at this cottage in May 2013. We have to say that it is probably the best standard off self catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in. The cottage itself is in a beautiful location, with no overlooking neighbours and with a stunning view of the Irish countryside. The fixtures and fittings inside the cottage are second to none. Everything is fresh, bright and of excellent quality, particularly the kitchen, which has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The best feature of the cottage though has to be the hot tub, definitely the best view from a hot tub that we have ever had. Total relaxation. Rosin and her family, who help to look after the cottage, were so friendly and helpful. We would recommend this holiday rental 100%.

“Perfect house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 19 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent a very nice and relaxing holiday in Cuanbeg. The house is clean, well equipped and furnished, and the jacuzzi was a really enjoyable 'plus'.
Gillian was very helpful, alongside with John, who was there very quickly to help us with any problem or question we could have. Highly recommended rental !
