My husband and I stayed here for a night on a weekend trip with another couple. We stayed in the cottage next to the main house, which was a decent size for four people and 2 dogs. We got the bigger bedroom so were more comfortable than our friends, who had a smaller room with two twin beds. Both rooms were ensuite and the showers were decent. Everything was clean bot nothing too fancy. I was pleasantly surprised to see instructions on where to recycle, compost and dispose of your own waste, so they are making an effort in that department. Getting into town was a bit of a hassle as we didn't exactly know where we were going and had to turn around a few times, but we figured it out easily enough. It took about 15 minutes to drive to Kinsale and, once we got there, we had a few awkward turns due to detours because the whole town centre was torn up to repair water pipes, I believe. It was nice to have our own kitchen and sitting room, as well as tons of land to tire the dogs out on. The host was a bit flighty- it was their first weekend putting their boat in the water so they were in and out running around. We didn't do breakfast since they were so busy and she couldn't remember what price she quoted for us so make sure to bring an email confirmation when arriving! No real complaints- it was worth it for a quiet weekend getaway.
