A reall gem

  • 5 of 5

I booked Ardnagashel for a cousins' reunion - Canada, England, Scotland (12 of us) - so needed lots of bedrooms with a comfortable and large lounge space and a decent kitchen. Ardnagashel proved to be the ideal house and the setting made the reunion even more special. The privacy, the view, the comfort were all more than expected. We'd come back here without any hesitation.

Perfect spot to explore the beauty of West Cork

  • 5 of 5

Over two glorious weeks in July, I enjoyed the company of a range of friends and family relaxing and soaking up the glorious view of Bantry bay at this lovely property

The house was perfect, enough room for us to all have our space with the comforts of home. We availed of the abundance of local ingredients and cooked up a storm every evening in a well equipped and pleasant kitchen.

Enjoying a coffee or a gin & tonic while looking out over the clear waters of the bay every day was both restful and uplifting .. none of us wanted to leave.

We were lucky to have had glorious weather which meant we swam every day in the beautiful bay .. chilly of course but so gorgeous we found it hard to drag both children and adults out of the water !

Stephanie, the property manager, was a joy and went to great lengths to ensure we had a wonderful stay.

I cannot recommend this property enough and am already thinking of when we might come back !

Beautiful Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

Great home with spectacular views. We had a lovely 4 night stay with plenty of space for seven adults to spread out. The fire place was a plus to get the chill out of the air. If you are a nature lover this is definitely the house for you with plenty of acreage to explore. Great outdoor seating space as well. Stephanie was so nice and helpful with our many questions about what best to see. Just a 5 minute drive in either direction to the small towns of Bantry and Glengariff. Having a grocery store close by was a plus. If you are traveling with a large family this is the house for you!

Idyllic tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot for a relaxing break for a large number of guests. We had 12 in the house for 4 nights and always seemed to have loads of room without ever getting under each others feet. All bedrooms are ensuite with very comfortable beds. The living room is very peaceful, directly overlooking the bay. We had great weather so sat on the picnic bench outside quite a lot. We even had a BBQ one day, which Moya's husband very kindly put together for us (very helpful !). The kids spent quite a bit of time on the little beach, (they even went for a dip in the arctic bay !!) aswell as exploring in the woods behind the house. All in all, a great stay. so good in fact that 12 members of the same family didn't feel like killing each other after 4 days under the same roof !! :).......Bantry is a 10 min drive one way and Glengariff the same the other way so perfect location all around. This is def our new way of spending time with a large group as everyone enjoyed it so much

Stunning location and a great welcome

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful location. Stephanie had some scones awaiting our arrival and had put some Easter eggs in the grounds for the kids to find. The games room was an added bonus that we were not expecting. Everyone was extremely friendly. The house was very comfy with plenty of room for our extended family and the wifi quality was good. The surrounding countryside is spectacular and my wife and I enjoyed kayaking around to Garnish Island on one of the days. Hope to go back again some time.
