“Lovely Stay in the heart of West Cork”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We came to Ireland for the Easter weekend to visit family and we were really impressed by Kilcoe cottage. Really easy to find in a beautiful location.

The house was very well equipped with amazing cooking facilities and large modern fridge freezer. The layout of the house was perfect with beautiful en suite bathrooms in both rooms. The claw foot bath in the en suite of the main bedroom was amazing. Definitely recommend relaxing in there with a G&T and a nice book!

We didn't get to explore the surrounding area as much as we would have liked due to time constraints but the trip to Mizen Head and the drive down there is well worth it. We also did a walk down to the pier in Kilcoe which was great to do with the kids.

There are some great pubs and restaurants in the area with beautiful food and we had a great and wonderful slightly windswept weekend!

Many thanks to Sharon for sorting the booking and for Niav for helping us to settle in. You really feel like you are being well looked after and help if you need it is just a text away.

Really lovely weekend, will definitely be coming back!

“Very Enjoyable Stay”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We hired the self contained end cottage which is quite compact but well appointed and offered pretty much what we required. We are a family with two small children so absence of space wasn't too much of an issue. End cottage is cozy and modern and I can see how it might appeal to couples who fancy a secluded break in the remote countryside. Sharon was a friendly host and her son helped us with our bags. Dogs very friendly . Would definitely go back and would certainly recommend. [We booked via Air b n' b]

“Fantastic honeymoon break!”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just returned from spending a lovely 10 days in Kilcoe Cottage. The location really is idyllic, with it being a few kilometres out of Ballydehob, it gives you the peace and quiet but easy access to so many other places and really show cases West Cork in all its beauty.
The cottage really is a luxurious home from home and has everything you need. Relax in front of the TV and play some games, or enjoy the tranquility of the garden in the good weather. The BBQ and hot tub work well in both!
The small touches, wine, cheese, tea, coffee, fresh bread, toiletries, all went a long way to making it a thoroughly enjoyable break. We will be back!

My family say I'm almost impossible to please when it comes to holiday accommodation but even I could not find fault this time! Gorgeous house, very well equipped and immaculately clean. Fab bathrooms and comfortable beds. Peaceful and private and only a short drive from the lovely village of Ballydehob. You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Try Buds in Ballydehob for great food, all locally sourced and super tasty.

“Fabulous-highly recommended!! Second visit and won't be our last!”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We first stayed in Kilcoe Cottage at Easter and had such a wonderful time that we booked again for an October visit. It is an absolutely perfect spot for a rejuvenating break. The house is beautifully furnished and very well equipped-everything is thought of. The underfloor heating and woodburning stove keep the place wonderfully cosy and there are squishy sofas and comfortable chairs for relaxed chill time after days spent exploring the many fantastic places West Cork has to offer.
The beds are extremely comfortable and have lovely quality bedlinen, pillows and duvets. Bathrooms are well stocked with quality towels and bathrobes and the claw foot bath in the master en-suite was a real treat. Sharon is an excellent cook and on both visits we availed of the Flexi-Extras food ordering option and ordered soup, main and and dessert-all absolutely delicious. It was also such a bonus not to have to cook after a long journey. Highly recommend doing this.
Kilcoe Cottage is an ideal place to stay-Sharon, Mark and the boys are so welcoming yet never intrusive and are on hand should you need anything. The dogs, Tiny and Brock are so friendly, but not in a jumpy way-just a happy tail-wagging way -so that even our very dog-wary 8 year old was perfectly fine about popping out to play with them. The house itself is warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean, very well cared for and tastefully decorated.

In short, go to West Cork, stay in Kilcoe Cottage-you will have a wonderful time!

Thank you so much for your very kind words. We thoroughly enjoyed having you here and are delighted you found it good enough to come back a second time. Our plan was to make the house a home away from home with a few little extras so we really love it when people appreciate it. Thanks again, Sharon.
