“Herons Cove ”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Another stay at this lovely cottage. Perfectly appointed and in idyllic surroundings. Lovely to wake up to watch the seals in the bay and sit on one of the three terraces of a warm evening, or light a fire on a chilly one. Thanks again Kathleen!

“Herons Cove provides absolute peace and tranquility”

Kathleen met us in Ballydehob on our arrival and led the way to Herons Cove.
Location is private, with stunning views over Roaring Water Bay. Access to the foreshore is via a slightly descending grass pathway.
The cottage was presented to us spotlessly clean and very well appointed .A welcome pack of tea coffee milk was very much .appreciated.
The warm welcome that we received included our small terrier type dog being allowed to stay.
I would most certainly be happy staying at Herons Cove again

“Delightful cottage”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Spent the last week in June at Kathleen's cottage. Everything you would want to have a relaxing break. Peace and tranquility with beautiful views over the bay. Ideal location for touring the many sites of West Cork.
Highly recommend a stay, I brought my dog Dexter who was also welcome. Thank you Kathleen. Will let all my friends know

Great location to get away from it all. Cottage, grounds and location are excellent and Kathleen and Tony couldn't be more accommodating in ensuring we had everything for an excellent holiday. We will be back.

“Picture postcard perfect.”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Imagine a picture post card perfect cottage: roses around the door, views over the bay, beautiful countryside, this is Heron's Cove Cottage Ballydehob. Add to that all the necessary conveniences for a comfortable 21st century stay and you have what must be one of the best holiday cottages in West Cork.
Our time was too short, but we will return.
Thanks Kathleen and Tony for the kind welcome.

“Lovely cottage on the water amazing views!”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage was perfect! Kathleen the owner met us in town and showed us the way.
She was so kind to leave us a welcome basket of goodies and lots of info of the area. The cottage had everything you needed and decorated beautifully. The views from the cottage were amazing. So quiet and peaceful. Great central location to travel and see south of Ireland. And come home everyday to a a cozy bed. Lots of wonderful hiking trails. Great place to stay to explore beautiful southern Ireland.
Thanks again Kathleen and Tony!
