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
The caretaker was very friendly, helpful and welcoming when we arrived. The house is beautiful, very well maintained and equipped.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was really lovely with all the facilities we could need. The location is in the beautiful countryside of Ahakista, a perfect spot to relax. It is very close to the village where there are a couple of lovely spots to eat and drink. I really enjoyed the food in the The Herons Rest Cafe and Arundels. The tin pub is also close and a really unique spot. There are not many shops nearby so I would recommend stocking up on your milk etc as your passing through Durrus. I thought the communication from Mary was excellent and Ciaran was very good at meeting us and showing us things to do with the house. It is a fabulous penninsula. We brought our bikes and cycled up to the sheeps head. There are stunning views. We also done an amazing hike on the sheeps head way and visited baltimore for a sea safari. You wont be short on things to do! You do need a car though for the longer journeys. A bike is good for getting around the penninsula. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
This property is dream worthy. It has a beautiful view and quite surrounding. The house is flooded with natural light and has a lovely interior. Each bedroom and room is fully equipped, with a homely feeling. We really enjoyed our stay and the surrounding countryside. Kieran was very helpful and close by if we needed help. I would love to come back to this property again.
I agree with others on saying the house is so much better than the photos. The family fell in love with the house and the view was amazing there in the Sheep's Head peninsula.
Fantastic is right! Too big for the 3 of us but we loved it anyway. Gorgeous home inside & out. Fantastic area for country walk, including actual hiking trails through beautiful landscape of Sheeps head peninsula stunning. Easy access to Beara peninsula also for day trips, we explored all of both peninsulas. Super awesome. Caretaker Kiern was fantastic, easy to contact and very helpful & responsive. Super super comfortable beds & great views. Loads of wildlife in area, even in yard. We saw a fox in the front yard & a pheasant in the back yard. We had everything we needed. You turn heat on & off when you need it & pay for oil & electric at time of departure, Kiern came quick when we called to take the readings and our 4 day stay cost 20 Euros, paid at time of departure. Fantastic value. If you have a large group of people this place is perfect. We had a fantastic dinner at ?? Very close, by at the harbor ,views of the boats , great food & service. Loads of option in nearby beautiful Bantry. Bantry house was great tour. Stunning area. We highly reccomend this place. Sheeps head peninsula is really off the beaten path, easy to drive even though most roads are nearly single lane, absolutely no tour busses. We hiked a lot and absolutely loved it.
Great staying, beautiful view and quiet .
Absolutely fantastic house, big bedrooms, large living room, huge kitchen, beautiful garden with an amazing view on the bay! We loved the house and its surroundings, did twice the long walk around Sheepshead, went to horseride at Bantry, enjoyed whalewatching in Baltimore and had a lovely lunch in Ahakista. All in all a wonderful holidays thanks to the location and the equipment of the house. Thank you Mary.
My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights in this accommodation. The house was spacious and nicer than we could have imagined. Kieran the caretaker welcomed us, he was very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay and will hopefully be back. Great house and location.
This was our second time staying at Mary's house, and it was wonderful again! Mary is a great, very gracious host, and her caretaker Kieran was always friendly and available to help us out during our stay. The house is so spacious and comfortable, with beautiful views to the sea. We love waking up to see the green hills and blue water, the cows walking behind the house, and one morning there were sheep grazing out front! It's a perfect spot for a quiet retreat!
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!
