“Comfort, coziness, hospitality and beautiful countryside”
Reviewed June 30, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Ellie's Cottage at the Beara Peninsula was the high point of our ten day stay in Ireland. Eileen and Robert (owners) were awaiting us and had a fire going in the lovely fireplace, along with a hot pot of tea and a basket with biscuits and chips ready for our use. Our arrival was hugely delayed because of a navigational error on my part and we didn't arrive until 10 pm. Granted, it was still light out, being in Ireland, but the fact that Eileen and Robert awaited us was indicative of the kind of kind people they are!

Ellie's cottage is just off the road as nearly all of the residences we witnessed during our stay. One can walk to a coffee shop, Pedals and Boots (where they have a variety of GF items for those of us who must be GF, as well as lovely hand crafted items for sale), but be sure to bring a reflective vest, as is the norm for the folks who live there and walk along the roads. One can also drive to Josie's for dinner. Josie's is a short distance; however, American drivers be warned: the drive is spectacularly beautiful but you will likely never be able to achieve the speed limit as the Irish do. They are clearly used to driving on the left in mountainous country!! One can also walk to the church where you will find a path that goes through a forest that is nothing short of magical until it clears so that you come to the views of the mountain peaks and the Atlantic ocean.

The cottage itself is warm, inviting and comfortable. It has all the conveniences of home. The new bathroom Robert installed is just beautiful. The kitchen has all modern features AND a lovely little fireplace for the coziest old world feeling. The living room has an additional wood burning stove and a spectacular view of the mountains. The gardens surrounding the house are cozy and charming, as well.

The best part are Robert and Eileen themselves. Their love of their countryside is contagious and as a result, we had the BEST adventure on Bere Island. You'll definitely want to enjoy Castletownbere where you'll catch a ferry to Bere Island. It is a real working port with fishing vessels and a lovely bustling town. Stop at the visitors center on Bere Island. A tall, lean young man with startlingly blue eyes will direct you to the walking path to see the lighthouse. Be sure to look at the photography at the visitors center-it's his work. Put on your hiking shoes, bring some water, and get ready for a true adventure scaling the mountains to see the staggering and indescribably beautiful views that await you.

Can you tell how much we loved it there? Be sure to get Robert and Eileen to share the history of the house with you. We have nothing like it in America. My husband and I feel like we found two friends in Eileen and Robert-their warmth, hospitality and lovely cottage were the best part of our stay in Ireland. We plan to return.

“Great hospitality”
Reviewed June 16, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Eileen and Robert made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived with a nice fire and a pot of tea. They are both really lovely people. The cottage was a comfortable base to explore the Ring of Beara and take some lovely walks.

“Fabulous location”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This lovely cottage was in a perfect location, with the opportunity to sip wine out the back while gazing on fantastic views. Having toured the Beara Peninsula, we felt that the cottage was in the best corner of the area. There are great walks to enjoy - up Knockatee mountain and the range from the Healy Pass, and good places to eat close-by. On wet days, the facilities in the cottage are a real home-from-home, with Eileen and Robert providing plenty logs for the fires, and a modern kitchen equipped with all we needed. Lovely cottage and lovely owners.

“The owners are very friendly but the cottage ,except for the ktchen, hasn't been attended to for years.”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location is good. The owners are very friendly and helpful but the cottage is in a very poor state. Especially the bathroom and bedroom are damp, smelly and very old. The kitchen is nice and new.

I'm very disappointed to read this on trip advisor as the note you left in my guestbook is totally different. I quote. ( We had a wonderful week in this lovely place . we enjoyed every minute of it). Also you left without paying for the oil and electricity. . Eileen.

We arrived without a car; due to Eileens kindness that was no problem. She fetched us at the busstation in Kenmare and drove us to the cottage. And how nice and cosy it was in it: the fire was warming the kitchen, and a busket full of things was ready to be eaten or drunk. We found everything we needed during the week. And when our son arrived with his family in their camper, they could stay before the cottage and use it without any additive costs! Thank you so much!

Hello Esther and Jüerg. We were so delighted to have you stay with us here in the cottage. You were our first guests from Switzerland and we loved to hear you whistle in the mornings. It was a big change for us to have guests with no car however all turned out excellent. Best wishes always. Eileen and Robert.
