A lovely warm & friendly few days at The Cove. Stunning countryside and amazing beaches. Compact accommodation, but perfect for a simplistic stay. Comes with a friendly cat who sits outside your door! Great place to unwind.

“Incorrect photos and details, Fantastic location”
Reviewed May 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We arrived at about 8:30 PM. The chalet is right next to the main house. The description says it has a 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms but it only has 1 bathroom, a double room and a single bedroom. The rooms are quite small. It is a hall cum dining cum kitchen with a common bath. The shower cubicle is tiny. Those white garden chairs are nowhere around. I think the photos need to be updated of the chalet and not the main house with the right details as it can mislead travellers. The best thing about the place is that it is in a wonderful location. You can walk straight up to the ocean and the scenery is just breathtaking. Luckily we had good weather unlike the previous day and we spent the day at Connemara and the Kylemore abbey. The heating is on a timer and only the owner has access to it. Same goes with hot water. There is a toaster, oven, microwave, fridge. NO internet inside the chalet. The only network you get is Vodafone. In some areas tesco, and lyca. Did I love the location? Yes. Did I like the chalet? Not much. Will I stay there again or recommend the place to somebody? No.Neither was the house nor the welcome warm.

“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful time at The Cove during our honeymoon. Our lodging was very cozy, with all of the amenities you would need to make an amazing meal and fully relax. On top of that, being directly next to the water created some picturesque moments. Would highly recommend this location.

“lovely location, friendly welcome, however photos were misleading”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

luckily our stay was amazing due to the weather. we expected the lounge to be bigger with a log burner in as photos on the web showed. as it happens the weather was glorious and we didnt need it, although we used the electric heater due to the heating being on a timer out of our reach and seemed to only be on of an evening for a short time and not in the mornings. if the weather was rubbish we were looking forward to cuddling up in front of the log burner and would've been bitterly disapointed. there needs to be proper details as to which photo belongs to which holiday let, the holiday let is a semi detatched, and the b&b (with the log burner i am assuming) is the larger house next door. lovely friendly lady, we had a lovely time, however the reason wasnt the holiday let it was the weather and scenery.
