Interaction with Guests
The couple who look after the house are very friendly and well informed on the local area. They have a family of their own and live locally. They will be happy to guide as much as you need.
Mill Race House is in the outskirts of the delightful and small village of Durrus. The town has real Irish charm to it with a selection of pubs and restaurants and a local shop where you can collect all necessities. We would be delighted to recommend local bars and shops to renters. Durrus is also located in the heart of the countryside and right along the coastline so there are plenty of outdoor activities to be done without getting into a car.
The best means of transport is by car. There are local friendly taxis and buses can be taken from Bantry to other locations. There are parking spaces with the house and these fit 2 cars. We would suggest renting/bringing a car, however if you choose not too then local taxis can take you too/from the airport.
Other Things to Note
You are right on the coast so take advantage of what there is to offer such as fresh fish, swimming and the countryside.
This was my grandmothers house and I am very fond of it so please do look after it. Smoking is not permitted in the house but there are two gardens and ashtrays are provided. Unfortunately we do not allow pets.
The house is a beautiful country cottage located in the picturesque village of Durrus, it had a really nice feel about the place, it was clean and well equipped.
The house was within easy walking distance of the village shops, pubs and playground. Bantry is only a ten minute drive away.
Emer our host made us feel very welcome meeting us on arrival and showing us around the house and explaining what there was to do and see in the locality, which was plenty because West Cork is a great place to holiday with children.
We had a lovely stay at Mill Race Cottage. Harry was extremely responsive and helpful in our correspondence leading up to our stay, and the house was just as described. There's plenty of space, a wonderful, large garden patio, and a gigantic binder full of things to do and see in the area. While the town of Durrus is not on the shore, the location is great as a base for exploring local towns. The woman who manages the property while the owners are away is fantastic and was a huge help to us in helping us get settled and providing recommendations.
