A true Irish country cottage with absolute "suaimhneas" (Gaelic for tranquility).

My wife and I stayed at this country cottage for 7 nights in late April, early May 2013. The cottage is called "suaimhneas", Gaelic for "tranquility", which, ironically enough, is the same name that we call our cottage in Ontario, Canada. We, of course, use the "non Gaelic" word.
Our stay was nothing short of "delightful". The setting, location and accomodations were beyond our expectations! The open fire with a start up supply of wood and coal was so thoughtful. And, the warm and welcoming invitation by Kathleen will alway remind us of how genuinely friendly the Irish people are. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. When back in your area, we will certainly look forward to a return visit.

Perfect Peaceful Getaway Location

Our second stay at Suaimneas was as memorable as last year. An ideal location at the heart of beautiful West Cork . So much to see and do with perfect hospitality at all places visited. Kathleen and Jack are ideal host and hostess with many nice touches that make your stay a pleasure. We are already planning our next holiday. We would also reccomment Irish Ferries as the way to travel with fuss free and propmt saings
Owner's Response: Thank you Roger and Gill for your kind review. Delighted to have you holiday with us again this year.
Hopefully other travellers will read this review and decide to holiday with us.

Comfy, cosy Cottage!

We had a wonderful stay, this is truly a lovely cottage - clean and beautifully decorated. Everything is laid on for you. There was coal and logs for fires (so cosy) and everything we needed in the kitchen. The cottage is close enough to town (an easy cycle or long stroll) but it is so quiet and peaceful. The location of the cottage is perfect for visiting all the area attractions - Glengariff, Bantry,Garnish Island and pony trekking were easily accessable from here. We loved our busy days and cosy nights in by the fire. We didn't want to leave!

A charming cottage

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage is spacious and comfortable with a lovely wood-burning stove, great for the chilly evenings. We were grateful to find a roaring fire on our arrival - thanks so much for that. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming, ensuring that we had everything we needed. The location was perfect for us - we were visiting relatives in the area and the cottage was a brilliant base from which to explore the area. We hope to be able to return soon and wouldn't hesitate to book with Kathleen and Jack again.

Suaimhneas is located 1km from the village of Ballylickey which is nestling on the edge of beautiful Bantry Bay with the backdrop of the Caha Mountain Range. Here there are hotels, award winning restaurants and pubs, supermarkets, and it is on the bus route. There are several little bays and inlets where you can swim and fish. The cottage is 7km from the maritime heritage town of Bantry, one of the principal towns of the lovely south west coast of Ireland. The mild climate that is enjoyed here is due to the presence of the Gulf Stream. Glengarriff is 12km away and is the gateway for touring both the Beara peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. Kenmare 36km and Killarney 72km. A visit to Glengarriff would not be complete without a trip to Garnish Island with its renowned Italian Gardens. Suaimhneas is the ideal location for touring the peninsulas of Cork and Kerry and to experience the culture, heritage and history of this unique region.GPS for the house is N51*44' 07.6' and W 09*26'01'
