The location was ideal, right in the middle of the town.
The house was huge and the host was accommodating.

We stayed at The Barracks which is a unique and historical place to stay. Gail the owner is lovely, we had a fantastic welcome. Gail had prepared afternoon tea. She has decorated the place in a vintage style which is my thing. We were in the centre of Rosscarbery and really felt we were part of the community. It is a beautiful place. The locals are friendly. We had fantastic weather. The Barracks is situated near lovely cafes and restaurants. We sat out in the evening. The Rosscarbery family festival was on so we really got the Irish experience! My son went to the open air disco in the square. The barracks has everything you could possibly need. There is an outside area and a bbq. Thank you Gail we had a great time and hoping to come back.

“Perfect for our needs”

Very well presented and elegant townhouse set in the middle of this historic village square. Loads of personal touches and high specification of extras. Very handy (walking) for pubs, restaurants, kayaking on the lagoon and the supermarket. Short drives to watersports, golf, and sightseeing tours. Only limitation would be the confined back yard which is shaded a good deal of the day. Lovely and very attentive owners.

“A beautiful house in an excellent location”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A beautiful house, full of character. Was perfect for our 3 night stay with 3 young children. Gail supplied everything we could possibly need or want and all we had to bring was our clothes. We can't wait for an opportunity to return. Rosscarbery is a wonderful place, full of charm ... A great place to relax and a base to explore West Cork from.

“The Old Barracks is a place to come back to again and again and I plan to!”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Old Barracks evokes the spirit of times gone by whilst providing all the equipment for a comfortable, modern holiday home. I loved it. Being in the centre of the village is very convenient for shopping, eating out and pubs with music. There is an excellent bus service to Cork City (great if you want a day in Cork without the hassle of taking a car) and services west to other coastal villages and towns. There are lovely beaches a pleasant stroll away and all sorts of water sports nearby. Coming back to The Old Barracks after a long day out is like coming home. Thank you Gail for your hospitality and generous welcome pack! I'll be back!

“A great addition to the rental market in Rosscarberry - a lovely home from home”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a great place to base yourself for your break in West Cork. The house has two good sized double rooms, sitting room, dining room, well equipped kitchen, and a good family bathroom. There is a small rear garden complete with a picnic table. There are futons for a further 3 or 4 folk, but the place is best suited to two couples or one family.
The place has been set up to feel like a home from home, it feels comfy and welcoming. Gail sets you up with a great welcome pack, so you need bring nothing with you other than clothes.
Rosscarberry has excellent, pubs, restaurants and a hotel with a leisure suite you can use (for a daily or weekly fee). It is also an excellent base for touring West Cork, cycling or walking. Its a great home from home.
