We are 10 minutes from Durrus where there is supermarket and good family restaurant open all year round. You will be on the doorstep of the Sheepshead way- fantastic way marked walking routes all over the peninsula. Arundels on the pier does pub food at weekends and all summer.
Annabel was a great host and the house was perfect. Our son loved the amazing gardens, the pigs, fish and the dogs. The area was fantastic and we had a great time.
A super warm welcome on a blustery February evening. The cottage is warm homely and full of wonderful imaginative pieces some created from salvaged driftwood. We loved the towel rail in the bathroom. You'll have to come and see. Fresh flowers around the cottage and fresh herbs to cook with are touches that take the cottage out of the ordinary. The pigs and the dogs molly and mikey lightened our mood no matter the weather. Annabel's art is full of colour and joie de vivre that makes this place a unique wonderful place at the edge of the world. Mick et Celine
We spent five fantastic days in Ahakista, that is a very calm and beautiful place on earth. The house was really comfortable and we had a great view on the sea. We liked the sweet dogs and the funny pigs, which liked our compost. Annabel and Klaus were very hospitable, helpful and pleasant. To stay there a few more days was a big wish from us when we must left. We will surely come back one day.
Had an amazing stay - fantastic location and a beautiful cottage, full of character. The cottage has a hugh enclosed outer area which our dogs took full advantage of. Thanks Annabel!
We had a relaxing stay in the cottage. The weather was poor for a couple of the days, but that made it perfect for staying in by the fire. The house was lovely and warm and suited the two of us, and two cats, just fine. We managed to get one day walking in, and highly recommend the area for spectacular scenery.
We spent a long weekend in the cottage to take a break from the city, is a perfect place for this. The cottage is very cosy and warm, and you have everything you need, even a nice selection of DVDs in case you are not lucky with the weather, though we were. Annabel and her husband were both very nice and approachable, we also enjoyed the company of their dog Molly who got along very well with our own. There is a pub within walking distance to enjoy a very well served pint of Murphys while overlooking the see. We definitely recommend this place and will come back at some stage.

Beautiful Tranquil Location in West Cork. Lovely picture postcard cottage with lovely gardens. Annabel met us on arrival and showed us around. A gentle, unintrusive host. A great location for a relaxing break. Amazing walks in the area.
