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.

Amazing place
We stayed at the chalet 4 nights with our pet cat. The place is lovely with great views and has a unique location, close to many spots to visit, like Mizen Head, Bantry, Barleycove and much more. Also, Jacqueline and Jonathan are awesome hosts, super friendly and always available. We definitely want to go back!

Beautiful experience
The cottage is lovely and everyone is very friendly ( humans, dogs, cats and donkeys!). You will find everything you need in the kitchen. The bed is very comfortable, towels are 5 star hotel level. The surrounding area is stunning. We are planning to go back soon!

Delightful, dog-friendly weekend retreat
Our three-night stay in the chalet was delightful. The space was cute and clean and it was lovely to have a private outside area where we could dine and relax in the evenings (occasionally in the company of our neighbours, two friendly donkeys). Jackie and Jonathan were both friendly, welcoming and generous hosts. The walks on the land were an unexpected treat. We brought our dog, who had just as good a time as we did. She loved playing with Saffron and Elsa and we felt at ease knowing that the property was so enclosed and safe. We would happily return. Thank you!

The perfect warm and cozy accommodation in one of the world's most beautiful environments.
This chalet along the Wild Irish Way in West Cork may be small, but it packs a lot of value in that space. It has everything you need, including a well-appointed kitchen and wonderful shower with lots of hot water. The bed is comfy, and the view in all directions is marvelous. It is perfect for the solo traveler, but is also suitable for a couple. The surroundings are unbelievably beautiful and the owners Jackie and Jonathan could not be nicer or more helpful. As someone who has traveled extensively in Ireland for more than 40 years, this is easily one of the very best places I have ever stayed. If you want to know the real Ireland, avoid the usual tourist haunts and stay here. You will never forget it!

4 days in heaven
What an amazing place! Jonathan and Jackie were superb hosts and the place was fabulous. Clean and tidy with everything we needed inc a dvd library for damp days. Dog friendly too which was a massive bonus. We had fun staying in the chalet, walking the grounds and feeding the donkeys. 4 days was too short though Katie and Brian
