Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The position and views with this property were exceptional. Tranquil, unspoilt and relaxing. The manager Mary was also a lovely, helpful lady who answered all of our questions. The property it’s self is well built but it does need some TLC and Mary mentioned that all the windows are to be replaced next year . The kitchen is well equipped and the use of a tumble dryer and washing machine were very helpful to us. The beds were comfortable but some extra electrical sockets and mirrors are needed for guests to be able to dry their hair. There is a separate annexe to one side of the house which is ideal for grandparents etc.

Das Haus eignet sich sehr gut auch für eine größere Zahl an Gästen. Die zahlreichen Schlafzimmer mit anschließenden Bädern sowie das zweite Wohnzimmer ermöglichen einen entspannten Urlaub. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und liebevoll eingerichtet. Vom grossen Wohnzimmerfenster aus blickt man direkt aufs Meer. Weitere Pluspunkte: offener Kamin im Wohnzimmer, Billardtisch, Tischtennisplatte und Veranda mit Meerblick. Wir (6 Erwachsene und 7 Kinder) haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt!

Beautiful house in great location
The house has wonderful common areas, generous bedrooms, great extras (sauna, pool table, table tennis) and a stunning location --the view is fantastic. Highly recommended!

A perfect spot
We have spent a most memorable three weeks in Ardnagashel House and cannot recommend it highly enough. A fantastic secluded position with the sea so close that when the tide is in, looking out of the huge windows makes one thing you are at sea. Wonderful birdlife outside the door - we even had a deer come within metres of the house. The sea is great for very bracing but safe swimming. The house is warm and snug when you need it and light and airy at other times. All the rooms are absolutely fine with excellent showers etc. Nearby is everything you need - fantastic walking to suit all, exotic gardens to visit etc. Provisions all easily accessibly in Ballylickey (excellent supermarket at the petrol station) or in Bantry. A really great holiday location!

Wonderful remote spot for a large family
The house is located directly on the Bay and is the ideal location for an extended family. We enjoyed our stay very much. Enough space for everyone, no neighbours to disturb, equipped with everything you need (including two large fridges and two dishwashers), and a great view. The combined living / dining room is exceptionally large and very comfortable. The park is an Eldorado for all plant lovers and great for a walk. Bantry, Sheep's Head and the Ring of Biara (recommended: the Healy Pass) are nearby. Moya helped us a lot by answering our questions and Mary and Martin (the housekeeper) were always available. Many thanks to everybody. Hasso Kaempfe

A Magical Week with Extended Family
What a wonderful place to stay! Before we arrived I was concerned that the house couldn't be as lovely as portrayed in the photos, but it exceeded all our expectations. The view of Bantry Bay was mesmerizing and could have kept us there all day. Moya, the owner, was helpful in every way and responds quickly to questions. The house was fully furnished and met all our needs. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The children had a great time exploring the lovely grounds and playing on the beach. The property manager, Mary, was responsive and quickly helped us with any concerns. We have stayed at several VRBO locations, and Ardnagashel House is superior. I'm sure your group will find it better than described. It is a perfect location because it's private and isolated and yet very close to a bustling town, Bantry, with everything you need. There are many attractions in the area. We hope to return and can't imagine a better vacation.
