  • A comfortable farmhouse in a beautiful location.

    "We stayed at Tig John for three nights right before the New Year holiday. We had some travel delays the first night so did not arrive until 10:30 pm. Eileen, the property manager/caretaker, was fantastic and very flexible in helping us make arrangements to get the keys. When we got there we were delighted to find a house that has clearly been loved by generations. There was an ample supply of peat for the stoves, and space heaters to help beat the winter chill. I think the only complaint I had was that, although the kitchen was well stocked, i struggled a little with lack of counter space. The beds were very comfortable and I highly advise that you try to climb the hill behind the house. It's a bit of a climb, but well worth it. The views are amazing. A couple of things we learned: - Finding the house for the first time after dark can be challenging. Try to get there before nightfall. - Starting peat fires can be challenging (even with instructions). Be patient and keep trying. The stove in the sitting room is much easier to get going. - Eileen is a font of information about things to do/see locally. :)"

  • Cozy and wonderful

    "The moment I stepped into this cottage I knew it was perfect. Stone cottage, adorable kitchen with wood/peat-burning stove, beautiful bedroom off the kitchen and lofted bedroom atop. The cottage is surrounded by lush greenery and fields where the sheep graze. Oh, how I love the sheep! This is the second time I have stayed at the cottage. I love it and can't wait to return. Truth be told, Ireland was not on my bucket list but I had an opportunity to travel with friends. After that trip, I vowed to return as often as I could. I first went in August and returned a few years later in February. The weather in August was fabulous. The weather in February was rainy but it didn't matter one bit. The rain made it even cozier. We still hiked Sheeps Head Way over the top of the mountain to glorious views of the bay (an easy walk or short drive to the trail). I found my favorite pub in Bantry, but there are many to choose. The food and hospitality of the Durrus and Bantry folks were fantastic. Day trips abound to spectacular sights like Mizen Head, Garnish Island and so much more. Thank you for letting me relax and restore in your beautiful cottage. To get a chance to breathe...and to breathe that fresh Irish air...I have never slept better in such peace and tranquility."
