Love living in this remote and spectacularly beautiful area of West Cork. Happy to share my space for a brief time with travellers, holiday makers, seekers and trippers and their children and animals.
We had a lovely time at Ally's home in Beara Peninsula. It is an old house but adequately done up for our standards. We slept really well in the double bed which was clean with -importantly!- a nice hard mattress. The shower was fine and private. Ally was not at home when we came but had made sure we knew how to get in and asked us to make ourselves at home and use whatever we liked in her kitchen. The views from her house are beautiful and Ally (and her gorgeous wee Jack Russell) were friendly and engaging throughout our stay.
Ally is an amazingly warm host who made us feeling home in her old farmhouse. She helped us with many tips and offered a rich selection of organical food for breakfast. The view on the ocean and the mountains, the rough landscape and inside the cozy warmth of the fire place, Allys easygoing way and her cute little dog we will keep in our mind and think about whenever we remember our holidays in Ireland.
Ally was a very welcoming host and even though she had some troubles with her car and couldn't meet us, she arranged everything very well so we could come into the house. The room itself was very nice and the view to the ocean was just gorgeous. Would recommend Ally's place to anyone who would like a getaway to a calm place away from the city.
Ally hat uns sehr herzlich bei sich aufgenommen. Sie hatte einige sehr gute Tipps für das Wandern in der Umgebung. Ihr Frühstück war ausgezeichnet, alles von hoher Qualität und von Biobauern der Region. Ihr Haus bietet einen traumhaften Blick über die Küste zu einer Insel mit Leuchturm. Ihr Hund ist sehr an Gästen interessiert und ein netter Begleiter. Sehr zu empfehlen!
We did not see Ally, but she was helpful when communicating with us via message. Her house was beautiful, great location next to a retreat and only a mile or two away from Castletowmbere. She has a meditation room that you are welcome to use and the shower had great pressure. I would recommend staying with Ally. I was dissapointed when I didn't get to meet her, I think I would of liked her.
Yes, me too Chaz, would love to have met you. Next time perhaps! Safe and happy onwards journey
