When booking the Cave Cottage, you really have no idea what you're in store for. You see the pictures, read the description, look at Google Street View, etc, but you really don't know what you're in for until you get there. For us, it was more than we'd imagined. The setting is idyllic; water on one side, fields on the... More

The road to the cottage is already breathtaking. You drive right by the water and during the magic hour a beautiful orange inundates the view. We found the key to the cottage where expected, everything was spotless and we immediately felt welcomed. The instruction book to the cottage provides useful information about the nearby village, bus routes, things to do... More

Four of us stayed here (all adults) and we chose it because the setting sounded perfect (and was very lovely) on the bay! The problem was that the bed in the downstairs room was broken (slats down in the middle) and so it was really difficult to sleep which is a major problem if you're going away for a relaxing...

We went to stay in this idyllic little cottage for five nights and certainly did not want to come home. Its ideal location situated a few steps down to unspoilt bay coupled with the breath taking view of rolling hills behind it made it what dreams were made of for us. Internally the cottage was clean, warm and comfortable offering... More

Cave Cottage is my favourite rejuvenation spot, the stillness and quiet is just magical. Breakfast by the water, walks in the Burren, oysters in Morans, sea swims and sitting by the cosy fire, its so good for the body and soul! If you want a relaxing get away, close to the city then this is the place. The cottage is... More

Just like in the movies, this adorable cottage right in front of a sunlit bay was everything I had imagined and then some...surprises. I spent months looking for the real Irish experience. I was just about to give up - it seems the old emerald isle has decided to replace its rustic manors with Motel 6 dumps that cost the... More

My husband & I came to Ireland on our honeymoon in 1973 and discovered a country full of stories, wonderful friendly people and stayed in gorgeous old cottages and hotels. Every turn of the road was met with a 'wow!' and every person was a friend. Ireland has changed a lot since then. There are freeways, traffic jams, big corporations... More

I stayed in Cave Cottage as part of a driving holiday around Ireland. I found Cave Cottage after many hours of trawling the net looking for a cottage that was typically Irish. I immediately fell in love with the place, and that was just from the photographs. I was travelling with three other adults so i had to wait for... More
