“Comfortable stay in a beautiful quiet locatoin.”
Reviewed April 9, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The apartment was very comfortable. It is one building, with three apartments and a common area. Therefore, would be great if you were traveling with other families. It is located just at the entrance to the Gap of Dunlow. This is great if you are looking for a quiet location and planning on spending time in the Gap or if you have a car. However, it is about a 20 Euro cab ride (no public transportation) to the city. I enjoyed the location as it was nice to be able to take a quiet morning or evening walk, even if we were doing other activities during the day.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed January 27, 2018 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed two nights in the two bedroom section. The location was very convenient and we walked to Kate Kierney’s for dinner both evenings. The pony trap did indeed meet us at the cottage. It was a comfortable place to stay.

We stayed 3 nights in the Gap of Dunloe Suite, Chrissie made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the suite is as good as the pictures and previous reviews.

The location of this cottage for exploring the Gap of Dunloe cannot be understated, it's a 5 minute walk to Kate's Cottage where you can organise pony and trap rides, boat trips and return bus journeys. We walked the Gap of Dunloe and caught a cart ride home, the scenery is breathtaking even in poor weather.

The suite has shared use of a washer and separate dryer, very handy when you arrive home in wet clothes. The power showers within the suite were also a welcome relief and always supplied with piping hot water. We stayed with our 10 month old son and would note for other travellers that there isn't a bath in this suite, we made do with a washing up bowl and it wasn't a problem for us. The suite has a fully equipped kitchen but no microwave, we managed just fine as we had sterilising tablets for the baby bottles.

In good weather travellers can sit outside the rear of the suite in a semi private seating area set aside for the suite, parking is also plentiful and secure with good outside lighting.

The towels and sheets were very white and very fluffy, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have stayed in beside our own!

“Good location, large size, good amenities”
Reviewed May 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Right in the Gap of Dunloe and walking distance to the pub. Good kitchenette, but no shopping close by so bring your own supplies. Quiet and modern. Laundry facilities. Responsive host.

“Lovely little apartment in a quiet and pretty setting”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We enjoyed a couple of nights at the Buglers Cottage, Gap of Dunlop suite with our two children. The suite has everything you need, comfortable beds, modern decor, just enough space, remarkably 2 bathrooms with super soft towels (maybe too soft!), and an adequate kitchenette with hot plates, fridge, pots and crockery for basic meals and breakfasts.

Finding the cottage is a little tricky, but best thing to do is head for Kate Kearney's Cottage (which is actually a pub/hotel!) in the Gap, and it's on the same road not far away at all (indeed, an easy walk for a convenient and pleasant pub meal and live music some nights).

It was a good base to explore the Dingle Peninsula (just a pity about the weather!). We Drove from Cork via the Wild Atlantic Way to the Gap on our first day, then did Dingle and did a lovely walk to and around the waterfall in Killarney National Park on our way back on the 3rd day (don't stop at the waterfall, allow for the extra 45 minutes and walk up the steps to enjoy the beautiful views and forest - it's a little steep for the first third, but worth the effort).

We were in town on the weekend of a car rally, which we were told would be noisy, but we weren't too affected by noise (perhaps the cottage is super sound proofed!). The only hassle the rally meant to us was that we didn't anticipate the crowds in Killarney itself over the weekend, so ended up not spending any time in town.

Note, the rooms do have double beds only (not twin) so that might be an issue for some families/travellers. We were able to make it work! The hot water also takes a little while to come through so be patient! Also, the kitchenette could do with a fry pan, or just plan to cook soups and pastas for dinners!

The lovely caretaker was friendly and helpful with local advice, and kindly posted a forgotten item back to me without any hint of hassle. Exceptional service!

Thankyou for your review. Unfortunately the rally is noisy, you were lucky it didn't affect you too much. I didn't realize their wasnt a frying pan in the kitchen, I'll get one bought right away.

Kind regards
