A Slice of Paradise in County Cork
Submitted: January 14, 2008

Our stay at the House at Libeen will always be one of our best travel experiences ever! Our group of six people (three teenagers and three adults) were overwhelmed by the size and beauty of the cottage and its setting amidst the most stunning scenery we encountered during our two weeks in Ireland. The home is spacious, spotless and restful. The glass conservatory overlooking the little rabbits on the lawn, the surrounding mountains and sea was our favourite spot to rest after day-trips to the nearby beaches, quaint villages or a hike through the countryside. The owners were terrific in recommending places to eat and tour. We loved the farmers' market in Schull, the shopping in Skibbereen, wild surf of Barley Cove and the famous crab sandwiches in Crookhaven. The Mizen Peninsula is rugged, beautiful and captivating, and the House at Libeen is perfectly situated to explore it. We've rented other homes in other parts of the world, and this was by far the best! We will definitely return one day.
