We have just returned from a 40th birthday celebration. We stayed in the Boathouse and the courtyard cottages. The island is so peaceful and a great place to chill out...shame we were there for only the weekend as we didn't get chance to explore as much as we wanted. Make sure you take a torch as it gets very dark at night! The Boathouse is lovely - there is one twin room upstairs but the stairs are tiny so make sure the people staying up there can manage them and there is only one bathroom to be shared amongst 6 unless you let them use the ensuite! We placed an order for food via Fields of Skibbereen and they provided everything we asked for BUT they choose all the expensive options and gave us 2 of everything if they were on 2 for 2€ when we only needed one therefore charging us alot more than we expected and we had to leave alot behind! I would recommend swinging by Lidl or costcutter on your way through Skibbereen. Also make sure you bring swimming hats (they do provide them but they are used ones!).All in all a great weekend!
