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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The River House exceeded all our expectations. We ...
The River House exceeded all our expectations. We stayed here for 1 week & happened to get the best weather that week compared to the whole summer. We travelled with our 8 year old, 6 year old and 13 week old baby. The house and grounds offered us all that we needed for our break away. We took our shoes off on arrival and only put them on again when leaving which gave us great opportunities for grounding. We made great use of the river, plenty of fishing and bonfires and s'mores. We were able to bring our baby on all our little adventures which was incredible my favourite adventure being sitting under the chestnut tree reading while he was sleeping in the shade. We completely slowed down the pace of time, emersed ourselves in nature, played with our children everyday, I'm the comfort of a stunning farmhouse offering us the cool temperatures in the kitchen and sitting room and the warm evenings/nights in the sunroom. Our children loved the trampoline but loved the fishing, rock climbing and family time just as much! Would highly recommend staying here to reconnect with nature, family and oneself. There was a beautiful feminine essence to this home. You'll understand what I mean when you get here. Highlight was the outdoor bath!

La casa è in un punto meraviglioso completamente a contatto con la natura e vicino a punti da visitare. L'unica pecca è stata la pulizia che non ci è sembrata fatta molto bene,.

Beautiful old house with character
Loved this house - gardens, river, art and beautiful homely kitchen and conservatory . Amazing location too! Enjoyed the peace and tranquillity and access to river swimming and nearby lough Hine.

Loved our week at River House!
We loved the location, house and gardens. Very well equipped house with lots of quirky and interesting artwork everywhere. Loads of books, games, dvds and the kids loved the huge trampoline and goal post in the garden. The fully working bathtub outdoors was a great surprise! Would highly recommend!

A place for moments...
A unique house in a unique setting with a unique atmosphere. The house welcomes you with an intimacy that is immediate. There is no settling in, there is only settling down - quickly wondering how you can spend as much of your time here as possible within what is already too short a time. We will be back...

Ireland Magic
This property is one of the best I have ever stayed in. It was faultless and the perfect place to spend time with friends. It was close enough to Skibereen to get provisions but , trust me, once you arrive at this place , you will not want to leave. I have deliberately kept this review short as one of the things I loved the most about exploring the property was the constant sources of great surprises. You will not be disappointed with this property

The River House
The River House near Skiberreen, West Cork, Ireland was the highlight of a 9 day stay. What a pleasant location in the middle of dairy farm country, along a small river, and isolated just enough to not be disturbed by traffic or noise from anything but Mother Nature. There were 7 in our party, six adults land one toddler and everyone fell in love with the house where we looked forward to returning each evening. Easily met our needs for alone time or family meals. Highly recommend this one of a kind rental for long or short tem vacations.
