“Great place to stay - exceptional views”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We hired this property to meet up with our extended family and what a good choice it was! The view from the property is wonderful - looking down Dunmanus bay to Mizen Head. The weather was wonderful, we had wall to wall sunshine for 5 of our 7 days and the other days though cloudy, were warm and comfortable. The property itself was perfect - lots of space to move about. The sun room was where we spent most of our time, being June the light lasted until 11pm in the evening. The beds were comfortable and warm and if you are a fan of quiet nights then this is the place for you. The peace and quiet has to be experienced to be believed. The grounds surrounding the house provided plenty of wildlife to keep us interested. (if you can pull yourself away from the views of the countryside and sea) I had not seen a hare for many years and woke up one morning to see one grazing on the lawn, along with our resident rabbits, blackbirds and thrushes. We had a wonderful, peaceful holiday in a nice house with beautiful views and weather. What's not to like about this place?

“Spacious cottage with sea view”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I booked the cottage for two weeks in August/September 2014. The stone cottage is very spacious and has a winter garden and a terrace with a beautiful sea view. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need during your stay. During our stay we had luck with the weather. Two weeks no rain! Having breakfast every morning on the terrace :-)

Very close to the cottage is the city Bantry. There you have supermarkets, fish shops (selling local fish), pubs and some excellent restaurants. Every Friday is a big farmer market in Bantry where you can buy products from local farms.

We made daytrips to Cork, the Ring of Kerry, Dingle, Kinsale, Mizen head etc. All is an maximum 1 ½ hours driving distance. But most we have enjoyed the long and breathtaking walks around the sheep’s head which is only a few kilometers away from Durrus.

We will come back for sure!
