I like to travel to many different countries, America being one of my favourites. Some of the foods I enjoy are Chinese Cuisine, Fresh Fruits and a variety of Vegetables
Mary's home is wonderful! We kept increasing the length of our stay because we were having such a great time there. The home itself is lovely and spacious, and you can't beat the views of green hills and the beautiful bay. It's a very quiet, peaceful area, about 25 minutes outside of Bantry. Mary is a great, considerate host, and her caretaker Kieran is great as well. I highly recommend staying here for a scenic, peaceful getaway!
We stayed at Mary Moloney's house in Ahakista for a week in August. It's a very large and very well appointed house. The photos on her profile did not do it full justice, huge rooms and very well finished. Fully equipped kitchen with two ovens a stove, microwave and all the equipment. Good WiFi, DVD, satelite TV. Lots of room outside for the kids to run around safely. The house sleeps 8 so it would be brilliant for a family gathering or a group getaway.
Of course the biggest positive is the location. The Sheepshead peninsula is a fantastic place to get away from it all. You are off the betaen path and you one of the best hiking trails in Ireland literally out the back. Annabel down the road runs the Heron gallery and cafe and there is also food on the pier and the famous Tin Pub. Great food up the road in Durrus.
It is a classic holiday home so there aren't any games or books to rummage through, bring your own. Also no public transport so it would be very difficult without your own transport.
Brilliant house, great location.
Myself and my two children had a wonderful few days in Rossnacaheragh at the end of July 2013. The house is absolutely beautiful with an amazing location, of the mountain to the rear and a view over the bay to the front. The pictures really do not do justice to the house, which is absolutely beautiful and much larger inside than it looks from out. Incredibly well equipped with a dishwasher, towels, toilet rolls all provided.
Kieran the caretaker was a delight. All in all I could not recommend Mary's beautiful house highly enough.Thank you, Mary
Thanks so much to Mary for a wonderful stay at her house which really does live up to it's title - "FANTASTIC 4 bedroomed detached house".
Excellent facilities, lovely location, helpful caretaker; all add up to a very enjoyable holiday experience.
Great time had by all.
My wife, 5 year old son, 22 month old daughter, and my parents stayed at Mary's beautiful stone cottage for 8 nights over the Easter holiday and it was just fabulous. The house is extremely large, well put together and has all of the amenities that you could ask for. Mary and Kieran (the caretaker) were lovely hosts and we would highly recommend staying her (and we will definitely be back again).
The surrounding area is beautiful and it is a great location to explore the Southern part of Ireland.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay.
Had a wonderful stay at Mary's listing. The house is very large and extremely clean, with everything you could possibly need for your stay. It is very close to the sea and Ahakista where there are fantastic walks, great pubs, friendly locals and amazing scenery. There are towns close by, if you want to have a change of scenery, such as Durus, Kilcrohaine and Bantry where you can have amazing food. Mary is an extremely diligent host, who contacted me prior to arrival with detailed directions and even made sure on the day of arrival that I would contact the caretaker to arrange the key pick up. We were also contacted while on the way there to make sure we knew how to get there and luckily they did, as we had almost made a wrong turn. The communication between the host, caretaker and us was extremely good and hospitable and I would recommend this listing to anyone, to enjoy the beautiful scenery of West Cork and enjoy the comforts of home at that same time.
