“Slice of heaven and true hospitality”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I truly don't know where to begin. Richard is a born people person and has been by far, the most outstanding and wonderful host I've ever had. To start talking about his sense of hospitality and care would take pages upon pages. Even prior to arrival, he was full of recommendations for outstanding restaurants (knowing that I was a chef and found this part of my stay important), at which I have never had such magical meals, recommendations for things to see (the area in one word STUNNING) and made sure that we had all the info we needed to feel that our vacation would be a good one. He waited for us in his car just to make sure we had arrived at the correct turn off so led us to the cottage (whose pictures simply don't do it justice). We were in a car accident 1.5 hours away and Richard even drove all the way to pick us up to ensure we wouldn't be stranded. He and Yvonne invited us into their own home and spent time with us as if we were old friends. We shared our stories, countless episodes full of laughter and ended up sharing one of the most magical vacations I have ever had. Anyone who comes in contact with Yvonne and Richard are truly lucky and anyone who stays here will leave feeling as if they have just seen the most beautiful territory on earth.

“Fantastic Location, Fantastic Service”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Richard and Yvonne were great hosts, the boat house is very comfortable (almost too comfortable!) and we really enjoyed our stay. Best night sleep in a long time. Great rustic feel to the accommodation as well. Pet friendly as well for our assistance dog

Loved our stay

“Honeymoon”
Reviewed 11 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Cedar Boathouse was where we decided to go after getting married in Kerry. It is a very peaceful cabin with a log fire and it was the perfect way to relax. The views and sunsets from the house were great to look out on while having something to drink in the evening. The family that run it are also very friendly with friendly dogs and cats to match! They were always on hand if required to offer useful advice on the best places to go and things to do in the area. It was the perfect place to explore Baltimore and the surrounding countryside from. We highly recommend this as a place to stay for a relaxing, fun holiday. Thanks, we'd love to come back!

“A fantastic corner of Ireland to stay in!”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We enjoyed 3 fantastic days/nights at Yvonne and Richard's Cedar Boathouse. We received the warmest of welcomes - including a lit fire! - and the house was thoughtfully set up for our little family (cot, stair gates, toys, minimal items within reach of small hands).
The location is ideal: it feels remote and has lovely views, but is only a short drive into pretty Baltimore, and a bit further (15 mins) into the supermarket/cafes/restaurants of Skibbereen); but the real draw card is the surrounding scenery, coastline, nearby lake, and opportunities for walks and views and peace/quiet.
As hosts, we couldn't fault Yvonne and Richard, who definitely went over and above our expectations. They were wonderfully warm and friendly, with lots of local ideas and advice - as well as providing an excellent babysitting, taxi and laundry service, and being very kind and unphased by us changing plans due to a poorly baby.
We'd highly recommend the easy ferry trip across to Sherkin Island, a walk around Loch Hyne, and a meal at Casey's.
Thanks again, Yvonne and Richard - next trip we'll settle in for a longer stay in your beautiful house, and corner of Ireland!

We spent five glorious relaxing days 13 to 17 Feb with our wee dog in the boathouse. Richard and Yvonne are wonderful hosts. Their girls are gorgeous. Thier 2 dogs bailey and bobo were an added delight for us. (Think bobo and madrah had a holiday romance). Richard and Yvonne are personable and professional. Really knowledgeable about the area giving great advise. We were greeted with welcoming text and directions on our journey there. Arrived to a warm welcome from relaxed Richard and a rose in vase from Yvonne. Lovely touch.(for valentine's) The boat house is warm and cosy. Full of wonderful homely touches. It has everything you need and more. We had the best night's sleep. We love to walk and explore. Richard recommend cliff walk which is a must. Beautiful. Great location and hosts. Highly recommend. We will be back. Thank you Richard and Yvonne.
