“A treasure in Beara!”
Reviewed May 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The Old Pub Cottage is full of character and you really have to see it to discover what an amazing treasure it is. Thank you so much Eileen and Robert for you kind hospitality and thoughtfulness. The cottage has been restored with such care, love and attention. It was relaxing, cosy and so clean. We loved sitting by the log stove at night and looking out at the amazing mountains.. a view to be appreciated and admired. The cottage is a perfect location to explore Beara Pennuilsa. Pet friendly our our little Westie loved her stay at the cottage and her adventures. It felt like home from home and so tranquil. Highly recommended and really it's impossible to fault. We will be back again, that's for sure!

“Easter in Lauragh”
Reviewed April 22, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

The Old Pub Cottage is a perfect little Irish cottage, nestled in the high mountains of Lauragh, with beautiful mountain views, and hill walks within easy reach. Eileen & Robert made me feel v welcome, with a blazing fire in the stove, and a fresh pot of tea. They also left lovely gifts of wine & treats for me and my little dog, v thoughtful.
Lauragh is an ideal location for exploring the Beara peninsula, and a good launch pad to head further into Kerry and explore the Iveagh peninsula or Sheeps Head.
It was lovely and peaceful and private, lots of birdsong, and the chorus of new lambs bleating across the hills. I had a lovely time, and Eileen & Robert have restored their old family home with love and care and craft.

“The most beautiful cottage in County Kerry”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Old Pub Cottage is an original old pub from the 1700s that has been beautifully restored by Robert and Eileen. The location is divine and the scenery magical. Robert and Eileen are the perfect hosts. They had the fire going and a lovely cup of tea ready for when we arrived. They provided wonderful advice on the local area and knew all the best places to visit.
The Beare penninsula is magnificent and we spent 3 days visiting the Ring of Beara and the remaining time visiting local villages.
I highly recommend Old Pub Cottage to anyone who want to visit the Real Ireland and the Beara Penninsula is an experience not to be missed.

“Cozy, very comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings with warm welcoming hosts”

We loved the cottage, that was cozy welcoming and had everything we needed. The welcome was exceptional. Eileen and Robert did everything to make us feel comfortable, with a warm fire going on arrival, with a nice cup of tea and goodies. Even a bottle of wine! Seldom did we see such welcome. The cottage is in beautiful surroundings, it is quiet, but enough to do nearby. We were with a couple and a friend. We can recommend this lovely cottage for anyone wanting to get to know the Irish Atlantic Coast. Eileen and Robert also provided us with information and tips on what to do. In one word, wonderful

We had a great week in The Old Pub cottage. Thanks a lot to Eilleen and Robert for their warm welcome and their kindness. The cottage is nice to live in, very quiet and very well equipped. We stayed in the beara peninsula all the week. A lot things to do and to visit : in particular, we were impressed by the beautiful scenery at the Dursley Island and the EWE sculpture garden between Kenmare and Glengarriff. Olivier, Lysiane and Timothée.

“Really restful visit”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely stay in Eileen and Robert's cottage. The inside was very cosy while there was a sunny external dining space overlooking the valley-since the weather was so nice we had most of our meals out here. Eileen also provided a high chair and travel cot for our one year old. We cycled around the nearby lakes and coastline with bikes from Pedals and Boots which was about a mile and a half away (which also does nice coffee and carrot cake). Would recommend for anyone looking for peace, quiet and beautiful scenery-Looking forward to our next visit to the Beara Peninsula!

“Lovely and cozy”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a heartwarming welcome by the owners Eileen and Robert with Tea and fire in the oven, fresh flowers and on the beds we were surprised by gifts. This was a very good start for our stay. The house is lovely, cozy and beautifully restored. It is also very well equipped and clean. We enjoyed every day in the cottage. The location in the middle of beara peninsula is practically for trips in all directions. We surely will come back.
