  • 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.
