“A memorable stay at Herons Cove Cottage”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We recently spent a marvellous week at the charming Herons Cove Cottage.This very attractive cottage overlooks Roaringwater Bay & the garden runs down to the waters edge.The owner,Kathleen,couldn't have been more helpful & met us in the village to lead us down the meandering road to the cottage & even had left us a "welcome hamper"!The cottage itself is really most attractive & very well equipped.We were a group of 3 adults & 2 children & there was plenty of room for all & it was well equipped.Outside there was a choice of different seating areas with wonderful views over Roaringwater Bay & a pathway leading down to the waters edge where the children discovered a swing & a hammock!
I would readily recommend Herons Cove Cottage for your stay in West Cork.

“Really beautiful spot so peaceful”
Reviewed January 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in Herons Cove last July, 2 adults and 2 children. It is a beautiful peaceful spot. The house is decorated in wonderful taste but also with kids it is perfect, loads of room, so comfy and lots of games and books etc. they enjoyed. It is a truly gorgeous house but still perfect for kids too. The peace is wonderful, away from everything, complete relax. We also got to see some local wildlife, the odd fox etc.. It is out a very windy proper country road so we would recommend to potter about and head off for your days outing and then come back and enjoy the house, rather than driving the road numerous times each day. I would recommend it highly

“A delightful Christmas in a cosy cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We spent a delightful Christmas week here. Warm and cosy with a wonderful view over Roaring Water Bay. Very friendly and helpful owners. The weather was very kind to us and we were even able to sit outside on the deck watching the beautiful reflections of the hills in the water. The cottage is perfectly located for day trips around the three nearby peninsulas of Mizen, Sheep's Head and Beara. All well worth a trip; each has different and varied scenery although the North coast route back via Healy pass on Beara was especially spectacular. For a local meal out we recommend Budds in Ballydehob.

“Stunning location, cosy cottage and helpful host.”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A lovely comfortable cottage located in a beautiful place providing magnificent views over the river and wonderful quiet starry nights. Everything you could need and want in the cottage, hard place to leave with the log burner glowing but well located for forays into the fabulous landscape of West Cork. Kathleen very helpfully met us in Ballydehob to guide us to the cottage and was welcoming and friendly.

“perfection”
Reviewed November 11, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is a great place to stay in a beautiful part of the world. The location of the Cottage is ideal, with stunning views. The cottage itself is extremely well equipped and furnished with style and imagination. Kathleen provided a very warm welcome and was on hand for queries but was never intrusive. A really special place to stay in gorgeous surroundings.

“Real Irish peace and tranquility”
Reviewed October 13, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife and I spent 4 nights here, the photo's that Kathleen has taken, do not do the cottage justice.
It is superbly equipped, cannot think of anything extra that you will require.
If you like to be isolated yet within distance of the local town this is the ideal place to rest.
Ballydehob has 1 shop which is also the petrol station, this is a little bit dear but there are 2 restaurants and 8 pubs.
We visited 2 of the pubs, they where very very friendly, had a good chat with the locals and we found we where very welcome.
