“The Wonderful Lobster Cottage”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My wife and I stayed here for a week last September. Mary was waiting for us when we arrived and showed us around the place. It was even better than we expected. Very comfortable and quiet and right on the waterfront we walked to town most every day for sight seeing and groceries. The kitchen was so nice and convenient we took advantage of the great local food and the English Market in Cork and made many meals at home.
The private parking and easy access to the main road made driving to near bye towns and beaches easy and fun.

“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I have stayed here before, and due to the great time I had back then, naturally I decided to book this cottage again when I fancied another break in Ireland.
The cottage is clean and tidy, and it is great value for money.
Getting here is quite easy and pleasant as Cork airport is about a 30 minute drive away and the local roads that serve this coastal town give great views of the Irish countryside.
One tip from me though... Go and try some good old Fish n' chips at the nearby restaurant!
I'll definitely be returning for another stay again soon.

“Adorable House with a Great Location”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

2 Lobster Cottage is just adorable and has a wonderful view of the harbor. It is in walking distance to the town center, which made exploring and meals out easy. If you are a runner, like ourselves, there are also great runs to the two historic forts. We had a great stay in Kinsale!
