Mike & Julia were extremely welcoming and helpful hosts. The location is amazing with a beautiful view over the peninsula. The cottage was perfect for our stay and had a well equipped kitchen. It is in a great location to explore Sheeps Head and Mizen head peninsulas but is also a great place for a relaxing holiday. Thanks a million for a lovely stay.

Mike & Julia welcomed us when we arrived. The accommodation had everything needed for a comfortable stay and was nice and warm on arrival. The enclosed garden area was a handy place for our dog Bailey to sniff around. It was lovely to see all the animals on the land around the house. Very relaxing stay and a good base for walks on Sheeps Head peninsula.

Fantastic in every way! The photos don't do the location or property justice. Gracious host and hostess... Friendly and interesting but also give their guests space. The cottage was spotless upon arrival. Modern and bright with the most stunning views from the garden of the mountains and waters of West Cork. The garden was just charming and our dog, Troy loved to potter around. We enjoyed feeding the chickens and admiring the ponies and dogs on the property. Great location to sight-see and sandwiched nicely between the larger town of Bantry and beautiful Ahakista. We loved it and highly recommend Swallow's Roost and West Cork.
