Super friendly communication with owners. Amazing location. Beautiful. Our boys loved having the beach in the back garden. I loved the views. The cottage itself was too dated for me. I think it would be possible to keep the charm of the original cottage and update it significantly inside. It felt dusty and the downstairs bedroom smelt a bit dank and that was in summer. Its a shame as I loved the location.

A landscape that defies description. Photographs do not do it justice. The dark skies were a treat with the milky way visible on a clear night. The owner was lovely and could not have been more helpful prior to our stay. Whilst the property manager was also lovely and very helpful. We hope to return. in the future.

The view from the West Cove property was incredibly beautiful. My kids didn’t want to come inside. All they wanted to do was play by the water, collect rocks, and explore! Catherine, the property manager, was also a friendly host who made us feel welcome. A wall heater was not working, but it was promptly fixed by Catherine’s husband. The property is old though and in need of updating. The walls need new paint as flakes of paint covered the countertop when the breeze blew the curtains against the wall. The beds were a 3 out of 5 for comfort. Downstairs toilets took some effort to flush. Some of the amenities could use an update — the tv and dvd player are very old and outdated. The dvd selection was misleading as we planned to watch some kid movies with the family and many were empty boxes. The communication/check-in aspect was new to me. I was trying to communicate via the VRBO app messaging tool as usual, but owner was using email, and we missed some important communications. We straightened that out though. One suggestion I could make is it would go a long way to have either a small welcome basket with some amenities or at least a warning that you need to bring supplies. For example we had to buy our own garbage bags once we realized there were none provided. We stayed here for about ten days in the off-season. Be warned there is not much to do unless you come in the summer. After day four we were ready to move on. Most everything was closed in Caherdaniel. Sneem and Waterville are a little more lively, but are about 20-30 minutes away. Kenmare is about 45 minutes or more for a proper grocery store and good shopping. In total, it was okay for our family, but wasn’t the most comfortable or amazing place we stayed. It is not recommended for a romantic getaway until efforts are made to modernize. We made some great memories though and soaked in the views.

We had a great time. The whole family loved it. We enjoyed watching the seals in the morning and going for walks in the area. A great place to stay.
