"This is no ordinary self-catering cottage! If you need a retreat from the whirlwind of modern life, this is it. Not only is the cottage idyllic, but Patti and Chris go the extra mile to make guests feel so welcome. I would recommend Mount Kid Cottage just for Chris's deliciously nourishing food and Patti's warm welcome alone!
Our four night retreat at Mount Kid cottage was perfect. We arrived after a long drive from Belfast to be welcomed with open arms by Patti, Chris and their dogs Pepper & Alice, who soon made friends with our collie.
Hearty, nourishing, local food; a hot tub under the stars and a field of cows looking in the kitchen window. This place is good for the soul.
This review doesn't do the place (of the people) justice - you've just got to go and experience it.
Thank you Patti & Chris for your warm welcome. We will be back in Mount Kid soon I hope."

An oasis of peace and tranquility in the tree tops!!
"Our family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers have stayed twice at this wonderful property and are smitten. It is tucked away in the rolling hills north of Ballydehob village but only 6 or 7 minutes drive from there. A splendid, panoramic view of Roaring Water Bay and the West Cork countryside dominates the vista over tree tops from the floor to wall window of the lofted accommodation. This is spacious, very well laid out and equipped and so comfortable with a huge dining table to entertain at. Outside there is a beautiful natural wood to explore, ducks, geese and hens clucking and quacking around and a giant bbq/spit area with lovely views. The owners are very helpful and friendly and Albert the 2nd, their new gander, is much more benign than Albert the 1st was although his female companions are definitely territorial. To sum up this is a must stay place if you are visiting West Cork where you can relax, switch off and chill in comfortable but enchanting accommodation at tree top level and appreciate to changing view as the 4 seasons pass by the panoramic window, typically for Ireland all in the one day!!"

"We recently stayed at this home in Rosscarbery. We had 3 couples who were celebrating our wedding anniversaries. It was our first trip to Ireland, and this home and the surrounding area couldn't have been better. The home is very comfortable and secluded, but close enough to Rosscarbery and a lot of wonderful sites (beaches, castles, Ring of Kerry, restaurants) that it was the perfect place to stay. We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace one night, everything was top notch, including a lovely view of the countryside from the house. Nora greeted us and welcomed us with homemade Irish scones and fresh coffee -what a wonderful way to be welcomed into this lovely country. We would highly recommend this home and this area of the country to use as a home base for seeing the southwest part of Ireland! (oh, and don't forget to visit Nora's craft store in Rosscarbery - it's top notch)"

Beautiful property in lovely, peaceful surroundings
"Lovely, spacious property, very clean and well presented although a bit off the beaten track. Would have liked map co-ordinates to put into SatNav as took a bit of finding in the dark and driving rain! Definitely need a car but ideal base for touring. Enjoyed closeness of beach and the weather was gorgeous after first day!"
