4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A great cottage in a beautiful location. Well equipped and homely. We had a baby and two childten and it was a perfect home from home. The only down side was having to dispose of rubbish yourself due to the absence of refuse collection in the area. Other than that we had a lovely time there.

Management response:

Thank you very much for your kind review of Muddy Cottage. I will mention the refuse collection in our listing, I hadn't thought to do that before. I hope it wasn't too much of a nuisance and that you found the recycle centre in Skibbereen ok. Jana

I don't think I can add anything to previous reviews for this property. It is exactly as described and the reviews are accurate. We enjoyed our stay, loved the cottage and it is ideally located for touring West Cork. It is very well equipped and does feel like a family home not the usual rental. Communication with the owners through...

Management response:

Thank you for your review, so glad you enjoyed the area and Muddy Cottage.
