"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."

"I vividly recommend staying at the cottage in Bantry. My stay there was enormously enjoyable. The house is spacious, airy, full of light and, above all, peaceful. As a writer, I just needed an inspiring place where to create and the cottage was perfect for that purpose. It was so relaxing to have a chance every day to face the Bantry Bay and feel a direct contact to nature, isolated from everything else. The private beach is so handy and pretty. The views from each room are excellent and the colours and sounds of the bay are breathtaking. The house is perfectly equipped. The owner and caretaker were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Bantry village is a three minute drive and from the house it is possible to take very pleasant walks. Other villages and towns are not far and can be easily explored. I am definitely going to stay in this cottage again."

Beautiful well equipped property, perfect for a family holiday
"What a wonderful property! This spacious house provided us with a beautiful home for the week, it was so much more than just a house for the holiday. The house was welcoming, bright, immaculately clean and well furnished with everything you could possibly need, both indoors and out. The layout is great with lots of bedrooms and plenty of space for eating and relaxing. The garden and patio were perfect for active children to run off some energy as well as a place to let adults relax outside. Our party was a mix of ages and the house suited us all. It has been generously equipped with bedding, towels, plates, cutlery and definitely has the feel of a loved home, not an impersonal holiday let, we literally wanted for nothing, it is a most comfortable property. We were a large party so also hired the associated studio which also offered great accommodation and the combination of the two properties provided a fantastic, generous space and facilities for us enjoy a thoroughly memorable holiday. The location is great for exploring West Cork, with easy access to Cork City or a short drive to the beach. Nora was brilliant, very knowledgeable and very friendly and helpful, from the start of the booking process through to wishing us a safe journey home at the end of the stay, her help was much appreciated."
