“Cozy Vacation Cottage”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Blue school and cannot recommend it enough. The price was a bargain for what we received---a comfy bed, plenty of space for both of us, a well appointed kitchen, and a quiet, serene getaway for our trip. The location was great for day trips to beaches, West Cork, and County Kerry.

“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I was suprised by the misses with a weekend away to the blue school. The cottage has a very good atmosphere. We arrived late in the evening in february but Ina and Jean Luc were waiting for us and gave us a warm welcome. The cottage was pre-heated and clean. It is equiped with everything you could think of. The bathroom is rather small but has a very good shower. The living area is spacious. The cottage is close to the village of Clonakilty and this gives you all the possibilities from a good breakfast to some shopping and very nice pubs. The area surrounding the cottage gives you enough adventure. If you like hiking there is a good book for sale in the local bookshop.

“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 for a stay in May 2011

A delightful and well appointed studio apartment and much thought has gone into the facilities. Ina and Jean Luc are friendly and helpful. The apartment was easy tto book even from Australia and easy to find. The location is great for exploring the surrounds.

“Great holiday - accomodation was perfect for a quiet, romantic break”
Reviewed December 6, 2012 for a stay in October 2011

We stayed in The Blue School studio cottage in the first week of October 2011. We flew to Cork with Ryanair and rented a car for our week's trip. The cottage was well located to explore the region, as well as having beaches, pub, supermarket a short drive away. The cottage was just what we were looking for - somewhere quiet, private, but with all the comforts of home (and wifi for a little bit of work). In summary, we really couldn't fault it- it was peaceful, pretty and we'd definitely recommend it to other couples.
