It was a great experience staying at this eco-house. great to see good environmental designed houses being built in Ireland. Tara was a great host who was thoughtful and considerate.
We really loved the wildness and beauty of the area and the view from the front garden out to the sea.
A beautiful, peaceful place with a friendly host who knows the area very, very well. We enjoyed the space and light and sea views, walks from the doorstep and drives further afield to stunning places nearby. We would love to go back one day. We came back very relaxed even after a short stay...
Accueil simple et chaleureux. Nous avons passé une semaine dans un environnement magnifique, des balades superbes à proximité (petite plage de galets à 10 min à pied).
La maison est propre et confortable mais pas forcément adapté avec un bébé de 15 mois. C est parfait pour un couple. Nous sommes très heureux de notre séjour dans la maison et notre fille a adoré le chien du voisin ! Merci
Myself and my friend we had a wonderful time staying at Tara's eco-house. The house, the location it's very unique and so relaxed. Tara is a very good host, she gave us instructions how to get to the beautiful beach and filled in the fridge with some food. I recommend this property to all my friends wanting to go to the West Cork as it makes your holiday memorable. I will definitely go back there anytime! :)
I spent two and a half days in the sunny eco-house with two friends of mine. The location of Tara's house is great and we liked the simply furnished granny flat. We had a great time in the nature of Cappaghglass and around. We enjoyed especially the small empty beaches nearby and hiking to Schull.
Tara welcomed us friendly and explained how to get to the beaches. And the bread she provided was so delicious!
Wir hatten eine großartige Zeit bei Tara. Das Haus hat einen unwiderstehlichen Blick über die Bucht und eine wunderschöne Umgebung. In 10 min Fußlauf gibt es eine einsame Bucht, die wir fast immer für uns allein hatten, Tara hat uns Kajaks und Fahrräder geliehen. Wir sind 10 Nächte geblieben und trotzdem war es viel zu kurz.
Wir waren im Granny-Flat untergebracht, ein einfaches, fast spartanisches Apartment, das durch seine Schlichtheit und Reduktion auf das Nötigste einen großen Charme entfaltet.
Tara war als Gastgeberin sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Da sie in der Zeit viel unterwegs war haben wir sie allerdings nur wenig getroffen.
Wir würden uns jederzeit wieder für einen Aufenthalt bei Tara entscheiden.
This lovely house with the charming Granny flat is located in an area ouf outstanding beauty and has got a big, sunny garden with views to the sea.
Staying there has been absolutely lovely and Tara cared for us very well and even showed us the way to her `private´ little shelly beach! We´ll definetively come back there next time we´re in Ireland!
Thank you so much!!
