You get what you give …
I spent 4 nights in this delightful cottage recently and loved everything about it. It is warm, cosy and very romantic. Sancta Maria is located within walking distance of Union Hall and right beside the gorgeous harbour. It is an ideal base for exploring West Cork.
Aileen was the perfect host, she provided us with all the necessities and was available to us whenever we needed but gave us all the privacy we wanted to spend our time away together. On leaving Aileen presented us with a beautiful book she compiled with her husband containing stories and art work by a variety of artists with connections to Union Hall.
I would highly recommend this cottage and can't wait to return again.
Nice little house, Aileen was very very nice,and Anne and I
enjoyed West Cork.
Aileen was extremely welcoming and we greatly enjoyed our stay. Aileen went above and beyond with her assistance to us and Union Hall is a delightful quiet village and a lovely place to recharge. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed
It was a very relaxing stay with everything we needed to enjoy a week in Unionhall. There was more than enough space for the 3 of us and with the outside space it was perfect. I particularly enjoyed the fire place (it might even be a bit chilly in August). The location is generally great and I wish we could have stayed longer.
This listing was exactly as described and very lovely. I couldn't have been happier with my stay and would not hesitate to stay here again. The location is ideal and a very short walk to the pubs in town. It was very quiet, cozy, and an utter delight. And the fireplace was very welcome in the cooler evenings. Aileen left a beautiful book she wrote explaining the history of Unionhall. It was very nice and will be a great memento of the trip.
This is a wonderful place to stay! Aileen and Paul are the perfect hosts and the cottage has everything you might need including a log burner which was very comforting when the evenings were chilly. There is always something interesting to see down by the pier, not least of all seals when the fishing boats come in. There are lovely walks on the doorstep and a wealth of places to visit in the area. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to be back. Thank you Aileen and Paul!I
Accueil formidable, Aileen a été très disponible et très serviable.
Aileen and Paul were so helpful and generous. The house was perfect for what we were looking for with all the necessities and that little bit extra. The view from the garden is spectacular and its a two minute walk away from the pier.
Nous avons séjourné 11 jours magnifiques dans cette maison. Le logement est simple mais propre avec un petit jardin très agréable et une bonne literie. Il n'y a pas de wifi ni tv mais cest ce que nous recherchions. Dans le petit village situé à environ 400 mètres il y a 2 pubs avec le wifi. On peut y boire et manger très correctement. Il y a également une épicerie où l'on peut acheter tout le necessaire. Toutes les personnes rencontrées (commerçants, pêcheurs, habitants) sont très sympathiques comme souvent en Irlande. Les paysages autour de Union Hall sont magnifiques. Attention sur les routes ! Elles sont sinueuses et relativement étroites. Préférez la N71 pour les déplacements. Je n'oublie pas Aileen et Paul qui sont des hôtes formidables et d'une grande gentillesse toujours là pour nous aider mais qui savent rester discrets. Je conseille cette maison pour tous ceux qui veulent profiter d'une nature splendide et d'une grande quiétude.
We spent three weeks in this lovely cottage while we were doing our Assistant Teachership at primary school in Union Hall. It's a good place to stay to discovere the south coast. Aileen and Paul are just gorgeous and we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage has everything you need. It's a good place to relax. Thank you for all your help and all the good advices. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Nos ha encantado recibirles en nuestro alojamiento.
Nos han parecido una pareja muy especial y nos encantaría volver a tenerlos.
Saben perfectamente lo que cuesta mantener un alojamiento por lo que han respetado las normas al 100 por 100.
Recomiendo a todo el mundo que los acepten.
