Quaint stone house with a sublime view. Enough room to sleep our 8 comfortably. Julie and her boys are lovely and available when problems arise, and the farm dogs are a mischievous bunch that kept us from missing our dogs back home too much. Our group of city dwellers was invariably amused when the cows were moved from pasture to pasture and loved it when they were in the front yard. Many happy memories here.
Just returned to the states after a 7 day stay at the Cuckoo tree house. THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. The view you seee upon pulling up to the house is enough to keep you content. But if that's not enough the house is perfect. We stayed the majority of the trip with 8 people and 1 young child. Julie the owner was accommodating from the get go. Making sure we had the proper necessities for the child in the house. The house layout is perfect with a big open kitchen and living room. It hardly felt like 8 people were there. The double sitting rooms, both with fireplaces offer extra space if needed. Each bedroom is perfectly sized and comfortable. It was great being able to walk up to see the cows and animals. The house is perfectly located close to several shops restaurants and pubs. And many activities to keep you busy. So if it's a big group or family traveling or a couple on a romantic retreat this house will meet your needs.
We are just after returning from our stay at this beautiful house and surroundings..one of the best family holidays we have had having 4 young kids with us and my parents,there is something to do for young and old. Waking up every morning going outside and having a spectacular view right on ur doorstep... Julie was just so helpful in every way could not ask for a better host and we will defo be returning to stay here.. what a beautiful place every day u would find some place new and was always like a big adventure..
My family and I had a lovely time, the owner is very friendly. The house was clean and cosy when we arrived and very welcoming. Amazing views and many wonderful places to visit that will keep you busy. Would highly recommend it to everyone. Great place for a holiday.
Just back from a weeks stay at Cuckoo Tree House. This house is in a fabulous location if you wish to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Quiet and away from the street, but yet only ten minutes drive from Glengarrif, where you have pubs with music on most evenings and nice restaurants also. If you fancy a dip try "Zetland Pier" again only ten minutes from the house, beautiful clear water and also a small cove beach which is also great for a swim. Our kids wanted to be there morning, noon and night !! Julie and her boys will look after you, but we needed nothing, everything was provided in the house that you will need. Also, the working farm is a great distraction and the kids especially loved "Titch" & "Mitch" the family owned pony and donkey, who were never apart. If your thinking of West Cork for a holiday, go no further that CUCKOO TREE HOUSE, you won't be disappointed.
Waking up every morning to the spectacular scenery was amazing and the peace and quiet was great! The local town of Glengarriff is a 5 minute drive away and has lovely bars and restaurants to aquaint everyones taste buds and the bars usually have traditional live music being played. The house is not far from the sea if you want to go for a quick dip or to even try some fishing. The house itself is very modern and there is always someone nearby if you have and queries. An admirer of animals and a break from the city, it was nice to see the chickens, pigmy goats and donkeys on the nearby farm everyday. Hope this of help to anyone considering Cuckoo Tree House for their holidays.
