“I wanted to take Sweep the dog and Mutt the sheep home with me”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2014

Mag had a peat fire going in the cottage when we arrived! Mag and Eugene were most warm and helpful with any questions. The dogs came to visit us daily when they figured out we had treats. This is a real working sheep farm and while visiting you realize the sacrifice these people make to keep this huge place going . Its a 24/7 operation. Very educational as well as a wonderful peaceful retreat. We treasure our memories here.

“Rustic Living”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

If you like Rustic, then this place is for you. Mag is a wonderful host and she made sure we felt at home the moment we arrived. The stone cottage is about 100 years old and is basic accommodation but still warm and cozy. We still had all the modern essentials such as dish washer, washing machine etc but without the time burners such as internet and cable TV. The open fire was great and the bed very comfortable. Our little hire car managed the bush track to the house and the view is breathtaking. A little hint... take most of your supplies with you as the major stores are a reasonably long drive away. Make sure you venture to Josie's for at least one meal. You won't believe how remote it is and how good the food and view are.

“A peaceful, tranquil piece of heaven”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2014

My mother and I took our first trip to Ireland and wanted to spend some time near the Beara Penninsula. Mag's cottage was absolutely amazing...completely equipped with everything we needed for two days of rest and relaxation. The beds were really comfortable and allowed for some actual sleeping in, and each room offered skylights that showed off the amazing view each morning. The only thing we felt needed a little attention was a slightly lumpy couch, but we made do! I would highly recommend arriving during daylight hours as it was hard for us to find at night only because of it's isolation (though it's up the hill from Mag's place so we felt totally safe). Mom and I both felt so at home at the cottage and loved that we were staying in a place with a long history. If we ever have the pleasure of going back to beautiful Ireland, we wouldn't hesitate at all to stay here again.And the sheep that I kept referring to as goats were awesome too! Thanks Mag, for your friendliness and for the best experience we had on our vacation!

“Un sentiment de serenité au bout du monde”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2014

Un cottage hors du temps, une vraie bouffée d'oxygène. Nous sommes arrivés de nuit dans ce cottage.Au réveil, quelle belle surprise...La vue est magnifique et le cadre est enchanteur, une vue sur la mer et la lande, des moutons qui gambadent autour de la terrasse, un lieu magnifique. Le cottage est très cosy, bien équipé, et la cheminée donne une ambiance douce.On se sent de suite chez soir chez Mag, et son accueil est à l'image de la maison, chaleureux. Concernant les services autour de la location, tout est présent.Une pompe à essence à une dizaine de Kilomètres, un village Casteltownbere qui présente tous commerces nécessaires, et un environnement sauvage et naturel. Tous les ingrédients sont présents pour passer un bon séjour... A noter, le cottage est au bout d'un chemin qui grimpe, un peu isolé (pour notre plus grand bonheur), mais il faut être vigilant...N'oubliez pas non plus votre adaptateur électrique !!! Merci à Mag pour son accueil et son cottage, parfait

“Little Piece of Heaven”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2013

Firstly let me thank our wonderful host Mag and Eugene for working so hard to make sure the cottage was ready... and for going beyond the call of duty when our car was disabled. The cottage was the highlight of our trip to Ireland it was our home away from home and had everything anyone could need,the ever changing views from the cottage are memories which I will forever remember when I think of Ireland. The Beara peninsula is a great location to see the real Ireland away from the more tourist areas. the mountains, the sea views are amazing and just a short drive from the cottage the not to miss Healy Pass over the mountains and the Stone Celtic Ring with amazing views of the mountain valleys. Having traveled around the world I can say that the Cottage is the one place that I will return.

“Excellent place!”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

Staying at the cottage was one of the coolest experiences I had in Ireland! The location is fantastic and waking up to sound of sheep is really nice. It is a very short drive to town where you can find plenty of restaurants and pubs. There are also plenty of small villages to explore and the Beara Peninsula is beautiful! It is a little less touristy than the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle Peninsula which makes it the perfect getaway. I cannot recommend this place enough and I definitely plan to return!

“Very Highly recommended!”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

Don't hesitate to book this cottage, it's the perfect getaway. The Beara peninsula is stunning and there is so much to do and see. The cottage is very private and cosy with everything you could need. The views from the cottage are stunning and the patio is perfect for al fresco drinks or dinner. In cooler weather it's lovely to get the wood burner going. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. They have great tips for places to visit. You won't be disappointed with either the area or the cottage.

“Terrific stay”

Reviewed 1 May 2013

I stayed for 2 nights at this wonderful cottage. It is surrounded by amazing scenery of the Beara Peninsula and hill sheep (with lambs while I was there.) The cottage had everything needed for a stay. It was cozy and the wood/coal stove worked so well, I turned off the electric heat. The owners are very friendly and were available to help in any way. There are several small stores in the vicinity for buying grocery basics and if you are there for a longer stay, there are larger markets in the town of Kenmare, about 15 miles from the cottage. It is remote, which is what I was looking for, not a busy village location. It was handy in that I could go into Kenmare or drive over the beautiful Healy Pass to visit the town of Glengariff. The quietness, views, scenery and comfort of the cottage were exactly what I was looking for. And, my dog stayed with me, making it a perfect stay.

“Splendid isolation!”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2013

This fantastic and authentic cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all. All the peace you could want, yet with all the assistance you might need from the very friendly and helpful owners Mag & Eugene. Situated on the north side on the stunning Beara peninsula the views from the patio are second to none, overlooking the sea to the magnificent Macgillycuddy's Reeks beyond - even Carrauntoohil on a clear day. There is so much to explore on this beautiful peninsula which is half in Kerry and the rest in Cork. The spectacular Healey Pass which crosses Beara begins just a few Kms from the cottage and within 10 minutes you can be overlooking Bantry Bay. There is wonderful food to be had and the Guinness at the harbour bar could well be the best in the country... Having been to the cottage numerous times now we think it is perfect, rustic but complete with dishwasher & dvd! In the evening a wood/turf fire burning brightly in the ample stove makes this a perfect cosy retreat. Enjoy!

“We had a delightful time at this quaint little cottage.”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2013

We enjoyed our stay from the warm greeting of Mag as we arrived to our farewell as we left. Mag and Eugene were so friendly. The cottage was clean and welcoming with a fire in the wood burner and wine on the table as we entered. The views were never ending from our cottage and beautiful inspite of the drizzly weather. We had a great vacation. Loved the sheep!
