“Perfect cottage in an ideal setting”

This is an absolutely wonderful cottage set in beautifully landscaped gardens on a private site. The cottage is on the owners land but is totally separated and only shares an entrance with them. It is completely secluded and private. Access is given to all parts of the 4 acres so there's a beautiful vegetable garden with a reading room / summer house that's perfect to relax in. There are also some goats and donkey on the grounds which we found really cute.. We absolutely loved our stay here because it's totally removed from the chaos of everyday life but also easy access to all amenities. The house is spotless and has a lot more amenities, utensils etc that I've ever had in any holiday home. They've also just opened a B&B next door, which I'm sure will be very successful. Even though the weather wasn't on our side we still loved our stay. The owners are very friendly and welcoming with a lovely welcome pack of home backed scones and cream waiting for us when we arrived. The usual everyday basic food is also provided as well as all cleaning products. All in all I'd recommend anyone who wants to get away from it all to stay here.

“a Perfect cottage.”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This cottage is beautiful and it had everything that I could possibly think of wanting. Mochael and Sheryl have such pride of place and it is evident in the lovely details in the cottage. I was travelling with a friend and we received such a lovely welcome when we arrived. I have been to ireland four times and this is the most beautiful of all the accommodation. I would highly recommend it.

“Perfection :o)”

We stayed for New Year, arrived late (2am) and Mike waited up for us, bless him. Sheryl had left us a delicious cream tea and the place was warm, cosy and welcoming with fresh flowers everywhere, and fruit in the bowl. The whole cottage was like something out of a Laura Ashley magazine, very tastefully done. Location was great a five minute car journey to Baltimore with a handful of restaurants and a shop, a large supermarket 10 minutes away in Skibereen to stock up on all your goodies. A special mention to The Sibin Bar which is 2 minutes away you MUST visit, home made food and great staff. The Loch is simply stunning a 3 min drive away, all in all a beautiful cosy base to explore west Cork, but the true stars are the owners with their Irish hospitality shining through, thanks guys we hope to see you again one day.

“Peaceful Country Cottage”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

We first stayed at this cottage last year (2012) and enjoyed it so much that we came back for a two month stay. (September / October). The cottage is tastefully equipped with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is also well stocked with cooking utensils and enough plates, cuttlerly etc that we were able to entertain friends who were also visiting this part of Ireland.

The welcome you receive upon arrival is like meeting old friends or family. There are fresh scones awaiting, fresh milk, eggs that come from the 8 hens and other necessities to get you started.

Being located close to Lough Ine is a bonus. There are wonderful walks that take you on a loop from the cottage and around the lough. The walk is about 90 minutes but do take the time to chat with fellow walkers that you will meet.

The cottage is well situated in that it is close to Skibbeeren and it is an easy 15 minute drive. If you are there on a Saturday do take in the farmers market. There is good shopping in the town which also has a heritage center.

There is much to do in the area and the cottage owners are very knowledgable and more than willing to share that knowledge.

“A gem in Lough Ine, Baltimore!”

This was a gorgeous cottage that had been featured in an Irish interior design magazine. It oozed charm and was beautifully furnished; the owners had fresh flowers artfully displayed in the cottage, along with a welcome pack of scones, butter, jam, strawberries and freshly whipped cream. The property was delightful, complete with an adorable donkey and three goats, chickens and a cat named Bert. The area is one of the most peaceful and beautiful in all of Ireland. We can't say enough about our week at Lough Ine; it truly was one of the nicest cottages we've ever rented--we are already looking forward to returning.

“Cosy, peaceful - perfect”
Reviewed 27 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have just spent a week at this cottage and it was superb. Really cosy, comfy, clean, well equipped and in a lovely quiet spot near Loch Hyne. Our daughter was very happy as there are lots of animals around - a donkey, goats, hens, cats. The owners of the house were very welcoming and very helpful. The cottage is near both Baltimore and Skibereen so although it is in a quiet location it is also close to everything you need. We were sad to leave - it had started to feel like home!
