nice place a bit basic and would have been nice if host could have left a drop of milk for us on arrival, this place isn't exactly over run with 24hr stores.
Fabulous holiday, lovely hosts, great cottage, amid the cows. A find for us.
An adventure from the start, how beautiful is this area! Loved the cows, and the countryside. Very quiet - just what we like. The hosts are most welcoming and helpful. We had a great week exploring the area.
Lovely cottage with great view and lots of privacy
The cottage was all I could hope for and we felt at home immediately! Dunmanus bay is beautifull at any time of day as well as the rest of the surroundings, we can also recommend the Sheepshead walking and the Ring of Beara! Violet is a great host, helpfull and generous (and a great cook!). We surely would recommend it to friends and want to come back ourselves also! There is still so much to see en enjoy!
Lovely and secluded but with great amenities
Our family of 5 stayed at Fortview Cottage for 3 nights on the last leg of our 10 day Ireland trip this past June. We stayed at 2 other cottages during the trip and this cottage was the most lovely. It has that rare combination of up to the minute conveniences (e.g. Wi-Fi) and rustic authenticity (e.g. salvaged stones exterior). And we loved the location at the edge of a pasture with our own cows to watch and many country lanes to explore. The Connells were helpful but unobtrusive, the place was spotless, the welcome wine was a classy touch, and we would not hesitate to return and to recommend the cottage to others.
A wonderfull and very lovely cottage!
We enjoied our honneymoon-holliday in the fortview cottage! It is absolutely wonderfool and charming, tastefully furniged and with a kitchen where you find all you need for preparing the meals.

At the cottage we enjoyed the garden and all the animals arround and the absolut silence! Violet Connell ist a very charming land Lady she helped us a lot and was always so friendly!

We still enjoy remembering every day this wonderfull holliday! thank you Violett trusting us and for all you have done for us! this was the best holiday and the right place for us!!
