Interaction with Guests
Meet and greet and then the place is yours.
Note: Minimum booking 1 week during July and August.
Cahore is a unique location. With the sea, pier, the Strand bar on the hill, stunning cliff walks and 20 miles of sandy beaches at the other side of the cliff walk, this place is like something from an Enid Blyton novel. It's ideal for families (crab fishing and jumping off the nearby pier is a holiday tradition for kids every summer). It's romantic for couples and a restful retreat for those who just want to get away from it all.
You need a car. There is no public transport. The nearest town is Gorey, Wexford and there are buses and trains that com from Dublin. It is possible to get a taxi for the 15 minute journey from Gorey but a car is recommended.
No smoking and general respect for the house and belongings.
Ruth was a brilliant host and Seaside Sanctuary was a really great location, with amazing views and great hillwalks and beachwalks. Would definitely recommend for a weekend away!
From the well-stocked fridge to the ready-to-light peat fire, Ruth could not have made us feel more welcome in her wood-scented waterfront cottage. We were travelling with three teenaged boys, and both the seaside location and cottage itself were perfect for our needs. We took full advantage of Ruth's excellent DVD collection and found her light-filled seaside home uplifting and easy to relax in. This is a mid-century building with a number of fixtures that date back decades (including a slightly idiosyncratic hot water system that kept showers rather on the short side) and felt like the much-loved holiday home of a creative family.
Such a plesaure to host you guys Hettie and I was delighted you managed to make the most of the few days you had here. My mistake not talking you through the boost system for the hot water. Sorry about that. You're right it is a bit idiosyncratic. Love to see you back here again sometime.
We spent a lovely weekend at Cois Cuan. The house was charming, with all essentials and lots of extra touches, huge selection of books and dvds. Location was superb, right beside the sea, lovely and quiet, gorgeous beach walks close by. Ruth made us feel very welcome, left us a bunch of goodies to enjoy. We'd love to return some day!
Ruth's place in cahore point is really special it is literally 20 steps to the beach. The kids couldn't believe their eyes when they saw how close and how lovely the location was. days walking It's lovely and airy and Ruth left us some
Goodies too in the fridge so we didn't have run out immediately and buy some. Ruth was so easy to contact and her DVD collection is great! You really can't beat this location and we
Loved the hot outdoor shower after our morning swims! Great walking around the area and swimming catching crabs it's perfect!
Just back from a lovely stay in Ruth's house. Location is fantastic with beautiful views of the sea, in fact you can even hear the waves from your bed!
We have a 7 and 11 year old who both loved swimming on the beach, jumping off the pier and crab fishing. Lovely beach and cliff walks too.
Really comfortable and relaxed stay.
