Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi James,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I was away for a few days.

We had a ball at Skellig Cottage. The weather was shocking so we got great use out of the house. The layout was fabulous. Everything was spotlessly clean and anything we needed was there. We even made use of the barbeque (in very extreme conditions).

We enjoyed it so much we were thinking of heading back there again for New Years Eve, if its available.

Thanks again for everything James. I'll be in touch re New Years Eve at a later stage.

Amazing place. Beautiful and spacious house in a spot with ever changing views over the bay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen area is huge and the views from the windows are really amazing. Its a 180 degrees view of the bay with ever changing vistas. No matter what the wheather is.

We found it hard to leave the place after only one week.

The house is well equipped, with several sitting areas. Only remark on the downside is that some kitchen appliances start to show some tear and wear.

Nice surpise was the availability of a Nespresso coffee maker with a milk frother for a real cappuccino. So bring the cups of your own liking for a perfect coffee ;)
