“Absolutly wonderful!”
Reviewed October 2, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

The Old Pub Cottage is brilliantly located and beautifully done. We found it to be warm, cozy and a comforting place to come home to after long days of exploring the Beara Peninsula and surrounding region.
Eileen and Robert were wonderful hosts, very kind, informative and cared very much that your stay would be as comfortable as possible.

“Old Pub Cottage, Lauragh”
Reviewed September 24, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

We had a fantastic holiday to the Beara penisula, and the Old Pub Cottage was the perfect place to stay in order to discover the surounding area. The cottage itself was full of character and was lovely especially when the fire was going at night. We were overwhelmed by Eileen and Robert's hospitality and we're made to feel very welcome and at home. They gave us great advice about where to visit and left alot of books and leaflets with information regarding the Beara penisula and other sorounding penisulas. This meant We were in a position where We always had something to do and wish we had more time to see even more. We both thoroughly enjoyed our visit and stay at the Old Pub Cottage and would recommend it to anyone who would like to experience or explore the south west coastline of Ireland. We would both love to go back one day. Thank you very much Eileen and Robert for looking after us during our stay and ensuring we had such a good holiday, from Peter and Megan.

“A Wonderful Piece of Irish History”
Reviewed September 23, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The Old Pub Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The owners, Eileen and Robert are spectacular hosts - they thought of every detail to make my experience at the cottage delightful. They met me at the cottage personally to greet me and give me a tour. Eileen had a hot pot of tea waiting for me when I arrived and an overflowing snack basket that included two Irish beers. Robert had the fire going to create a warm and welcoming arrival, and plenty of wood chopped for me to have fires every night during my stay. The cottage itself is a work of art, with exceptional woodwork throughout and little decorative touches to create an authentic cottage feeling. I especially love the fact that Eileen and Robert took such care in transforming this place from an actual old pub to the cottage it is today. I like knowing that their work has preserved a piece of Irish history, which you'll learn more about if you stay here. As for the cottage's location, it's fantastic. Very convenient to the vast assortment of experiences that are available on the Beara Peninsula. I especially enjoyed visiting Derreen Gardens (5 minutes from the cottage) and having dinner overlooking Glanmore Lake at Josie's Lakeview Restaurant (only 10 minutes away and open all year). Finally, I appreciated the close proximity of the Old Pub Cottage to a modern day pub - Helen's Pub at the Kilmackillogue Pier. In summary, this is a fun and charming place to stay, with stellar hosts as part of the package.

“great accomdation in a stunning area”
Reviewed July 8, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This is a gorgeous cottage and Eileen & Robert are lovely hosts. The views from the cottage are wonderful and the location is perfect for exploring the extraordinary Beara penninsula and beyond. The cottage is set back from the winding road and surrounded by mountains and suffused with the sounds of birdsong, it has been lovingly restored to create a great living space which is a joy to be in. Highly recommended...

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed March 28, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We can not compliment Robert and Eileen enough for our stay with them. From the minute we arrived til the day we left we enjoyed every part of it. The cottage itself is so unique and incredibly well maintained. We were never stuck for things to do and places to see during the day but enjoyed most getting home, lighting the fire and cooking some fresh fish at the cottage every night. We brought our little dog with us and even he felt at home from the minute he arrived (especially with the fire lit for us on arrival). We were sad to leave and even stayed an extra day. Can’t wait to return in August. Thanks again and see you soon at ‘The Old Pub Cottage!’

“The Old Pub Cottage”
Reviewed March 21, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We really enjoyed out stay. The cottage had such character and was exactly what we needed. The stove was very warm and cosy in the evenings but upstairs could be cold but we just turned on the heaters and it was fine. Eileen and Robert were so welcoming they had the fire going and a pot of tea waiting for us on arrival they also told us a bit about the history of the cottage and nice places to visit during our stay. We would really reccomend the Old Pub Cottage to anyone who is looking for a nice peaceful break.
