“Well equipped stunningly located cottage with uninterrupted views of the sea.”
Reviewed August 20, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a week here with our two boys and we found the cottage was a perfect base for exploring the beautiful mizen. We enjoyed mornings watching wildlife on the bay and evening watching the sunset and gannets feeding off the cliffs below. The cottage was a sanctuary of calm and comfort. We would love to go back again for more. Goleen the nearest village is lovely and has all you need for groceries etc and nice cafe and seafood restaurant. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who loves being near the wild sea and who likes exploring.

“Book if you can!”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was one of the best holiday homes we ever had. It is spacious, clean, well equipped (very comfy beds) and just beautiful. Wooden floors and doors, wooden open kitchen. The biggest room in the house with the kitchen, dining table and living room has a very high ceiling and the best: a fantastic view! With bad weather you can watch the water splash over the rocks - just great.
The owners and housekeeper are extremly nice and helpful. The drive there is a bit adventurous when you come from a big city but is now a nice holiday memory.

“Great holiday home!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned home from spending a week in this beautiful bungalow! The views are spectacular! It is in quite a remote position but we got used to travelling up hill & down dale to get to it. The wooden furniture adds to the character of the place.

“Magical”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a magical stay in The Cottage, Golleen. The Cottage has the most amazing setting overlooking Dunmanus Bay. Everyday brought a new and amazing view from yachts, small boats, watching the waves beating against the rocks of Cantys cove. The drive to the property is an adventure passing sheep and cows. It is so peaceful and beautiful. There are beautiful beaches nearby and the locals are so friendly. The countryside is the most beautiful I have ever seen I highly recommend. The property is unique wood flooring through out and every convenience, all the kitchen seems to be a bespoke build. Fabulous.
