Interaction with guests
You won't see us, the owners of Crab Cottage, as this is our holiday home too! However we have excellent and friendly longstanding caretakers who are available and live nearby if there is any problem. The relevant contact numbers are displayed in the house. We have a comprehensive manual of how to operate all the appliances etc. In addition we have written our own guide to the local area based on over 30 years personal experience of visiting West Cork.
