  • Exceeded Expectation.

    "My family and I stayed at this property for a week. I live in the USA and my family live in England so we decided to have a family vacation in Ireland a place I had always wanted to go. The house is in a cul de sac with views of the ocean. it was quiet and views are stunning. My brother and I got up and went for walks along the quiet roads with spectacular views every morning. The house is located in a convenient location for all of south west Irelands tourist spots. We visited Kilarney, Blarney, Beara pass, Mizen head, several others all in good driving distance. The house has everything you will need, a lovely bedroom with en suite bathroom downstairs and 2 great bedrooms upstairs. We drove up on arrival down a country lane and all of a sudden you come out onto this view of the ocean with cliffs and an island right in front of you it just takes your breath away, just gorgeous. I would highly recommend this house to stay in. Linda the owner was very very helpful and I would go back again in a heartbeat. The photos do not portray the beauty of the place, you will be very happy when you get there !!"

    "This home in Kinsale met all my expectations, and believe me they were high. Declan and his family are nothing but kind, helpful, and considerate. The home is beautifully maintained, roomy, and comfortable. We had a large group of adults and children and never felt cramped. The location is exceptional. Somedays we walked into Kinsale and enjoyed the town with all its shops, friendly people, and great restaurants. Other days we we took long walks on all the trails around this home or just enjoyed the beach and sites nearby. Kinsale is also a great stepping off point to tour around. We did a lot of touring and I can honestly say there was not one location I saw on my travels that I would have preferred to stay. My family took this trip to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary and we could not have chosen a better spot."

    "I have visited Ireland many times since 1980, our first trips we toured all around the island. Then my husband and I started staying in cottages in the West Cork area. When you rent via internet you have to trust that the property will be as pictured. The Jewel Box exceeds its description because you can not put in words the feeling derived from its views and the peace sitting in the sunroom watching and hearing the waves on the beach. I used the binoculars to watch the shorebirds and keep tabs on a very large heron that fished along the stream in the field by the beach. I didn't do as much driving this visit because I found great walking and gorgeous scenery right outside the door of the cottage or close by in Bantry and Durrus areas. It was convenient to be close to Bantry. I could buy a pizza at the Brick Oven (the best) and have it back to the cottage while it still was hot. Lots of good restaurants within a short drive. There are recommendations in the Welcome Book which are spot on. I did visit a couple holy wells because I enjoy the historical and mystical aspects of Ireland. One well west of Macroom and another just down the road. Crookhaven, Mizen Head, and Barley Cove beach are close and worth the trip, especially O'Sullivans at Crookhaven. The cottage is well maintained and has the comforts of easy living. I enjoyed the woodstove on cool days and the sunroom could be as warm as Florida. Tim and Eliza were helpful in getting me settled and staying in touch. I hope to return and bring a family member along. I certainly would recommend the cottage to friends and family. I am fortunate to have found this treasure and appreciate the owner's responsiveness to inquiries. One more thing most important to me since I traveled alone is that I felt very safe in this area of Ireland and the cottage in particular."
