We had a lovely time in the cottage. A great location, near enough to Castletownshend to walk to the two pubs for an evening of very enjoyable drinking/eating and music and there was a wonderful view - when it wasn't too overcast to see the sea (ha ha). The cottage is tastefully decorated and comfortable. The only problem - and quite a big one - was that the second bedroom had a damp problem and the bedding smelt very musty, as well as all our clothes by the end of the week. Castletownshend is a good base for visiting the beautiful sights nearby - e.g. Baltimore and Lough Hyne to the South and Unionhall etc. to the north - and also very easy to get to Skibbereen for supermarket shopping.
