We stayed here for a family get together over Xmas and New Year. The house is fantastic. 6 large ensuite bedrooms, 2 large living areas with fireplaces and a kids room which worked really well for us as we had 3 toddlers! I would highly recommend staying here as a base for exploring Cork or just to relaxed in country...

Absolutely AMAZING, u need to experience it for yourself. Welcoming delicious homemade treats and blazing stoves. Such a yummy dinner made with love with fresh ingredients. The house is even more gorgeous than pictures. Short stroll to the beach. Beautiful unique rooms. Hope I get to return someday soon.

Wow - thank you so much for your great feedback and comments. We really appreciate it. Keep spreading the word and hope to see you back again! Best wishes, Kela & Stephen
