live and let live
My wife and I enjoyed an eight day stay at this clean & comfy cottage near Midleton, Cork. ((website hidden) map Ballynaskeha). It was exactly as described: a very private stone cottage in a rural setting, well appointed inside with modern renovations, kitchen, washer/dryer, approx. 18-20 minute drive from facilities and stores. A car is a must & a GPS for visitors is highly recommended, as many of the surrounding roads are unmarked narrow twisty country lanes.
Minor quips: Hot water (which may be solar heated) was not available for our last morning shower. Weak Wi-Fi from the main house disconnects often.
Eleanor’s house is behind the cottage and she is a very accommodating hostess, ready to provide you with local information. If you seek privacy and an “away from the hustle & bustle” country setting, this cottage is ideal.
We wanted a quiet cottage in the country as a base for touring Cork and other counties. This cottage was perfect allowing us to be self-contained We loved the cottage and the spacious shower and bathroom was much appreciated. Having Eleanor next door was helpful for local knowledge.
