  • A little piece of heaven on earth!

    "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."

  • Great time at Cahergal

    "Loved staying here ! Four women, each with our own bedroom and bath is a luxury. Noreen and Michael were so good to us. Noreen made us scones and two kinds of bread. We got to meet some of the neighbors. Beautiful farm, lovely neighborhood, great location, super hosts - what more could you want ? If I come back to Ireland, Cahergal is definitely on my list."

  • Fabulous home!

    "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)"

  • Outstanding

    "We had a party of 9 adults and Lisheen House was perfect. Ideally located in the Burren national park, with gourmet pub and art gallery an easy walk away, the house is beautifully furnished and ultra comfortable for all times of year. Mary and Shamus are warm and hospitable and there to help whenever needed. Lisheen is a very beautiful holiday destination."
