“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This little cottage on the Beara Peninsula was the perfect hideaway for us. Eileen and Robert met us on arrival and had hot tea and a roaring log fire made and a basket of treats on the table. They were so welcoming and friendly, and it is clear how much they love the area. The cottage itself is adorable, and we enjoyed sitting in front of the fire every night (many thanks to our hosts also for unlimited logs).
Couldn't recommend this cottage/part of Ireland more and will definitely be back. Thanks again.

The cottage was absolutely lovely, even nicer than we had expected based on the photos. Fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms, antique and/but very comfortable bed - everything very cosy. Owners - extremely helpful and hospitable. They provided everything that we needed and offered their help and guidance at any time.

The neighbourhood of the cottage is stunning. Green hills, mysterious forests, beautiful coastline. We were focused on hiking but everyone will find here something interesting.

This is our third time staying in Lauragh and first time in the Old Pub Cottage. We found this cottage perfect for us and our dog Meg. The stove is brilliant. The cottage has a brilliant view of the mountains and we even had our breakfast outside on Sunday. We met the local cat who took a shine to us. Eileen and Robert are second to none, friendly as ever, fire on and the kettle on which is truly appreciated after a long journey down. Would totally recommend it and will be booking again in 2016.

“Lovely cottage, wonderful hosts!”

The Old Pub Cottage is a wonderful 19th century structure that has been lovingly restored by Eileen and her husband. It's a gem of a cottage in the hauntingly beautiful Beara Peninsula, near stunning landscapes like the Healy Pass and Gleninchiquin Park. Eileen and her husband (who run a small store near the cottage) were waiting for us when we arrived, having prepared tea and snacks for us. They were gracious and helpful hosts, with suggestions for dinner and hiking locations. I would recommend them and the Old Pub Cottage without reservation. You won't be disappointed!

Seldom have we been able to say that we could find no fault at all with places in which we have stayed. The old pub was as close to perfection as any potential guest is ever likely to find ; Eileen and Robert were quite charming, and although all good things must come to an end, both Barbara and I were quite sad to be leaving two people who in such a short time had become friends.
Tips and guide lines ? any future guest need do nothing more than to look in the red guest book, if you think this an over simplificatuion, NOT SO ,

“A warm welcome in a cosy cottage in a beatiful area!”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed our stay in this cottage very much! After a warm welcome, we enjoyed the cosy living room with a fire place, books and ideas for things to do. We slept very well in this quite area. During our holidays we travelled by bike and car in different areas in Ireland. We were impressed by the nature of Beara. A lot of options for beautiful walks, bike tours and nice villages. Our stay was too short! We hope to return to the cottage in the future!

“Nice place, nice people, a great adventure...”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We are family - travelling with young kids... and a dog. All of us, older and younger, humans and animals, we were very happy with the stay in the cottage. Everything is provided as promised, clean and welcoming. The cottage, its self, has a bit of history to tell - a good break from our 'plastic' world...Surroundings are special - wild and rich in walks, lakes, mountains, waterfalls... Ocean is not far away... The weather wasn't at its best, after a long walk a cup of tea and fire in the range was a nice treat - the owners provide as much fuel as you need to keep you warm. Nice place, nice people, a great adventure, what do you need more?...
