Great location90% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Close to the village but quiet and secluded. The house is a home and full of interest . I love my garden and the hillside around and that at night it is dark and quiet [rather than traffic noise I hear a fox bark or an owl hoot up the hill] We have two cats.

Lovely breakfast with home grown creations! We ran into unforeseen challenges on our way to Joys and arrived later than we had hoped. Joy was admittedly cross with us for arriving at 9:00, as they go to (Email hidden by Airbnb) munication was tricky for us coming from Dublin as…

Response from Joy:
I don’t usually agree to first timers staying . So sorry I did. What an awful and unfair review...six positive words and the rest! I wasn’t cross, I was hurried because I had gone to bed and was on the phone to my son when you arrived after nine. During the evening I had been worried that you might have had an accident. You led me to believe that you had just flown in and before going to sleep I sent you a text sympathising since I had done the San Francisco flight . I told you to sleep in . The next morning ( when we treated you both with warmth and kindness) it became clear you had spent the previous day in Dublin. The room isn’t damp ( no one has ever mentioned it before ) and Terry the cat jumped in through the window once . There is a sign in the room saying not to leave the window open too far in consequence. I don’t have a smart phone but I think you could have texted me once during the day since my mobile number appears on Airbnb once you book.

Beautiful home, adorable puppy, and great spot to explore south western Ireland from. Joy was a delight to meet and speak with. If you are curious about the type of home this is, I had to wake up and leave at 0330 for a flight and when I was leaving (Joy woke up to say goodbye!…

Joy’s place is tucked up in the trees about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Leap and is a perfect little resting place between adventures. Joy’s hospitality is outstanding and you’ll be sure to have fond memories of your stay.
