This beautiful holiday home is an original, restored 1800’s coastal stone cottage – offering exceptional views and ideally positioned to let you savour all the attractions and natural beauty of Ireland’s West Coast.

This is without doubt in my top 5 places to stay in Ireland. I have been fortunate to stay in some nice places but this is just fantastic. The view as you look out the patio door is hypnotic as you watch the waves and the scenery continuously moving. The accommodation is 5 star, the attention to detail is wonderful...
