    Loved this place! Very comfortable room. Greeted by gracious owners. The grounds are whimsical with a sort of hippie vibe! Loved it! Work out area for those wanting to pump some iron. Close to to Lough Hyne where we did the night sea kayaking! ( highly recommend this )

    Great place to stay for a quiet, out of town experience. We had a relaxing hot-tub at the end of the garden, then, borrowed a guitar (they're hanging on the wall) to have a cozy music session by the log fire. Had a great time chatting to our very friendly and knowledgeable host, Des, who made us feel very welcome. Remember to bring a beer with you. If you forget, Skibbereen is only 10-15 mins away by car.Would love to stay again.

    A lovely guesthouse in the countryside. The hosts were wondeful and had the sweetest dogs. It's fairly remote, but the perfect escape if you're looking to get away from the bigger cities.
