“Idyllic”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We have stayed in this beautiful home on several occasions over the past few years with our growing family and each time have been broken hearted to leave. The cottage is a true home away from home with every possible comfort and convenience. The gardens outside are paradise for children where they are safe to roam through the meadow, hideout in the treehouse or while away hours on the trampoline, swings or at the football pitch. In fact it was often difficult to persuade them to leave to visit the stunning nearby beaches and countryside. Inside the house we spent many cosy evenings by the log fire, or gazing out the picture window at the stunning views beyond. A visit to staigue fort cottage is refreshing and rejuvenating for body and soul and we cannot wait to return

“A lovely cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We loved Staigue Fort Cottage. It is a well equipped, family friendly house, with a lovely garden and in a fantastic (if slightly remote) location. The views were fantastic! Nearby, we particularly liked Derrynane Bay, which was a great beach for the kids to go swimming or body surfing, in a relatively safe environment (it is a blue flag beach with lifeguards). We also liked Sneem and Denmare even more so. The drive to Killarney may be a long and winding road but the views on the way through Killarney National Park are spectacular and well worth the trip. The only minor complaint from my duaghters (11 and 13) were that there was no wifi; however we considered this a positive! And they got their "fix" whenever we went to a pub or cafe (the nearest one is the pub/museum at the bottom of the lane). Overall a lovely cottage in a lovely place!
