We loved our stay at Aileen's cozy and perfectly-located cottage. A short and lovely walk to town, right next to the harbour, a lovely patio to enjoy the sun and morning coffee. We also enjoyed laying out on the lawn. Very comfortable beds as well and such peaceful sleep! I would definitely stay again :)

Really lovely family-friendly house and area. Incredible having the old pier and little beach a stones throw from the house! The house is kitted out with every kitchen appliance or utensil you might ever need. The living space is bigger than it looks in the photos! Lovely little area to have your coffee outside too with beautiful flowers surrounding you. Great base from which to explore West Cork. A short walk brings you to local shop, pubs and coffee shop. Would highly recommend for couples, families or friends!

The setting is particularly beautiful, both in terms of the immediate environs of the house and the local area. The welcome and communication afforded by the host are exceptional. The value is good and the house is very clean and well-cared for. We really enjoyed our stay, and hopefully will have a chance to return for another.

The cottage at Union Hall is in a perfect spot for exploring West Cork. The village is very friendly and not crowded with tourists. Aileen provides a wealth of information on the area.

50 yards from the sea overlooking Union Hall old harbour, stunning location with glandore in the distance. If it's a nice walk, a quiet pint by the sea or spot of fishing/kayaking or sailing this place has it all and topped off by wonderful firndly owners of this property definitely worth a visit.
