  • An absolutely spectacular peaceful experience in private luxury

    "Having travelled the world with our jobs we have stayed in many places that promise but don't deliver. This wonderful piece of architect hidden amongst a magnificent 11acre garden behind high secure gates delivered everything and much more than the site boasts. Immaculately clean with 6 star finishes wherever you turn offers privacy with all the mod cons you need. On my return to Australia next week I will be recommending this as a must stay for anyone who is visiting this beautiful part of the world. The design inside and out is outstanding yet has a very homely comfortable feel a very hard balance to find. Thank-you for the excellent experience from booking to checking out. Rating from 1-10 is a 12!!!"

  • 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!!"

  • Beautiful, modern and well furnished house.

    "The house is exactly as listed. It feels very new and is very modern in its amenities. It was thoughtfully furnished with lots of nice extras like games, movies, music CD's, etc. The owners, Chris and Olive were wonderful. They also own a restaurant within walking distance which had the best food of any place in town (and we ate at them all!). We even had a glitch with our flight home and they rearranged some things to let us stay an extra night. The house is 5 stars and was very reasonable compare with similar properties we looked at."

  • Beyond our expectations

    "It was the first visit to Ireland for my partner and my first as a tourist (not family). We could not have been happier with our choice of Old Parochial House for location, great accommodation, and most of all Alyson and Sean our wonderful hosts. They took the time to make us feel welcome and at home and we enjoyed several chats with advice on places to visit and history of Ireland. Our balcony looked out over the fields of a neighboring farm, which thrilled David who had grown up on a farm here in Canada, and every evening we were able to enjoy a glass of wine and bathe in the peace and tranquility before dinner. Thank you both for making our week in Co. Clare a memory to treasure. We would both highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to spend some time on the west coast and enjoys country living. We found it easy to make day trips to Connemara, Dingle, Cork, Limerick, Ennis, Burren etc. The quiet really was deafening!"
