Glengarriff home in West Cork
The house met our expectations with plenty of room for 7 adults. The property had stunning views with a good location for day touring.
Fantastic house with stunning view. Really spacious and comfortable. The photos don't actually do it justice!
Mostly perfect, but...
The house is perfect for 3 couples with large BR's on the main floor. There is an additional BR and bath upstairs that would better suit kids but could handle adults, just not as comfortably.
House is spacious and well appointed, especially the kitchen.
We were 3 couples, there for 2 wonderful weeks, touring, cooking in, just enjoying the scenery.
Our only complaint is the very poor internet service which was not working for several days, then very sporadic and slow service afterwards. I would recommend against this property if you need reliable internet.
The TV had very limited channel selection...satellite or cable is much needed at the property.
Thank you for your positive comments about our holiday home and glad you had 2 wonderful weeks, it is a very special place indeed.
We would love to improve the internet service and regularly look for ways in doing just that, however this is the only service available out side the bigger towns and cities in Ireland. Fibre optic broad band, which most of us take for granted is just not available yet, but isn't that part of the charm of visiting rural Ireland.
There is cable TV in the house but again we are not blessed with the many channels we all take for granted, most people spend the time marvelling at the sea views and wildlife from the kitchen and lounge as they relax after a wonderful day touring West Cork.
Vacation in Paradise
Beautiful and well maintained home in a lovely setting. Very close to splendid town of Glengarriff. Could not give it a higher recommendation.
We so enjoyed our stay at The Courtyard! It’s a lovely home, very roomy. There were 6 of us, and we had plenty of room. This is my fifth trip to Ireland and my third to the Glengarriff area and I so enjoyed this home with its delightful ocean view and lovely gardens. I hope to return to the Courtyard in the future.

The house is 1 km from the famous village of Glengarriff, which is 20 km west of Bantry, 30 km east of Castletownbere and about 20 km from Kenmare. Glengarriff itself is a wonderful village filled with good restaurants, craft shops and several traditional Irish pubs offering complimentary traditional entertainment at night. The entrance to Glengarriff Harbour is guarded by the world famous Garnish Island with its tropical gardens. There are boat trips to the island every twenty minutes during high season. The whole area is highly influenced by the effects of the gulf stream current which gives this area a sub tropical climate, indeed the house has both Bananna and Olive trees in the lush gardens. Another attraction 100 meters from the house is the Bamboo park, a botanical and horticultural paradise. Glengarriff is also home to the largest harbour seal population in Ireland, the seals can be viewed from the house or from the many nature walks within the village boundaries.
Golf: We have two golf couse's in the immediate area, Bantry Bay Golf Club which is open to visitors and is a Cristy O'Conner Jr. designed park land course with 14 of the 18 hole's having spectacular view's over Bantry Bay. The second course is Glengarriff which is a 9 hole park land course with spectacular view's over Glengarriff Harbour. The club president is the film star Maureen O'Hara who can often been seen in the club house or down in the village of Glengarriff.
There are a further 3 course's with in about 20 km of Glengarriff.
