  • Thoroughly Delightful

    "Cooga Cottage is a perfect, relaxing vacation destination. My sister and I stayed here during the Spring and although we did not have a car we were perfectly happy to relax and enjoy Doon. If you wish to sightsee, you will need a car as the town of Doon has only a couple small grocery stores, some pubs, and a church. Everyone we met in the town was kind, helpful, and welcoming. My sister and I especially enjoyed Anne's grocery store where everyone was polite and friendly and we could buy fresh scones. The cottage itself was a complete joy to stay at as it is: - equipt with every comfort and convenience possible (and more) including a spacious bathroom, complimentary shampoo and conditioner, multiple hair dryers, excellent quality appliances including a dishwasher, well equipt kitchen, plush furniture and bedrooms, sewing kit, vacuum cleaner, and tea. - Upon arriving the cottage was clean and Tom was welcoming and had supplied chocolate treats, milk for tea, and a bouquet of daffodils from the gorgeous and meticulously kept yard (for summer visitors, the yard has fruit trees). He also gave us a tour and told us the history of the cottage, which deepened our appreciation for it. - Tom went out of his way to help in anyway possible, had labeled where things go, and had an in-depth guest book which included grocery store hours, bus schedules, emergency contacts, instructions about the trash, compost, and recycling, etc. - The price was a great deal and Tom was fair and generous with the cost of utilities. - The cottage is obviously well-cared for and its beautiful and cozy decorations make it truly feel like a home away from home. Our time at Cooga Cottage was a complete joy and we highly recommend it to any traveler who values relaxation and comfort."

  • Most Marvelous!!!!

    "Just a quick note to say how wonderful our stay in Dingle was. The listing is accurate, the owner wonderful to work with and the peninsula breathtakingly panoramic. Many a evening spent watching the surf as the sun set behind the cliffs. The home was immaculate and quite spacious. Dingle was great for food and music. A rental car is a must but affords opportunity to explore the entire area. We hope to return."

  • Lovely cottage, friendly hosts

    "Sadly we were only able to stay one night in this gorgeous character cottage but we will definitely be back. The house is clean, cosy and well equipped and the hosts were friendly and helpful recommending places to eat locally and even preparing food for us on our arrival. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into ensuring that guests feel very welcome while staying at the cottage and have everything that they could need to enjoy their stay. We stayed with our toddler and the additional living room was great for us to be able to pop him into bed and sit and relax without having to worry about waking him. The upstairs living room would also be great if staying with another couple or teenage children where everyone might appreciate having their own area to relax on an evening."

  • 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)"
