We had a wonderful time in the cottage and area. The cottage was very comfortable and cosy. The area was very peaceful and quiet. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We had a perfect time in a perfect place. Thanks a lot to Eileen and Robert and we hope to come back with the rest of our family next year.

“Comfort in a place of paradise”

We're home a few days now and I'm still lonely for the mountains around Lauragh. We had a fantastic time,with all our comfort needs met in the cottage, two very gracious and helpful hosts are Robert and Eileen. Beautiful clear frosty days for lots of exploring,we had huge appetites and made a huge fire each evening when we returned to the cottage. It was the stress free,fresh air and exercise giving break I badly needed. We will be back.

“The Perfect Cottage!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Our stay at Valley View Cottage was so comfortable and perfect in pretty much every way! We were greeted by Eileen with a pot of tea and a fire blazing in the grate, and she was full of advice about what to do during our stay, both rainy and sunny options. The cottage is ideally situated, it's remote enough that you get to appreciate the full beauty of the Beara Peninsula, but it's only a 20 minute drive to Kenmare, and only about 5 minutes from Lauragh. We spent plenty of evening's just relaxing at the front of the cottage with a home cooked dinner, overlooking the stunning views, but I would also whole-heartedly recommend Josie's restaurant in Lauragh - it was the best food I have ever had, and the service was also excellent. The only regret that I have about the cottage is that we didn't stay longer! I would definitely go back, and would recommend it to anybody.

“Tranquil Cottage”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The hosts were wonderful from the beginning with a fire and a well earned cup of tea. Very comfortable cottage with stunning views of the mountains. An ideal retreat for a couple who wants a quiet vacation. All amenities in the kitchen and a great base for sight seeing.

“A warm , generous welcome”

What can be said that hasn't already been said about our hosts Eileen and Robert. They are without doubt the most generous welcoming couple that we have rented from, nothing is to much trouble.
The cottage is clean and comfortable with plenty of space, and lots of little extras. We found it a great base for the many walks and drives on the Beara.

We had the most amazing holiday here. Mr and Mrs O'Shea are the kindest hosts we have ever rented from. A roaring fire and pot of tea on arrival and really useful advice on places to visit. The cottage was perfect and even though it was very rural, it had quicker internet than we do in Bristol!
It was the perfect location to explore the ring of beara. We went on magnificent walks and even got to see dolphins.
We will definitely be visiting again!
