Welcome to Suaimhneas. The cottage is situated on its own private enclosed grounds which provide ample parking, safe playground for children and secluded area to relax and sunbathe or enjoy an open air picnic and view the scenic countryside.Combining the best of both worlds it has every modern convenience and all the romantic appeal of a traditional cottage.The interiors are finished in natural wood which creates a warm welcoming atmosphere. Suaimhneas is approved by the Irish Tourist Board. It 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, and Glengarriff is 12km away and is the gateway for touring both the Beara peninsula and the Ring of Kerry.

Very Dissappointing

  • 1 of 5

After reading the glowing reviews for this property, this was booked for a family stay, however, we had a very different experience to those who had visited before us.

Unfortunately the cottage was very damp, musty and had not been cleaned prior to our visit.

Overall a very disappointing experience, and we could not commit to staying more than the initial night in the cottage due to the above.

I have had to submit this as a one star review, as unfortunately a review cannot be submitted with no rating which was my preference.

Owner's Response: This reply is totally unwarranted and unmerited. I have advertised with Owner's Direct since 2008 and have never had a complaint in fact many of my clients are repeats. I pay particular attention to the cleanliness of the property including bed linen and towels. The building is a sound structure well insulated. If the client had informed me of the problem I would have done my best to rectify it. Unfortunately I did not meet them as they kept changing time of arrival all evening and I eventually agreed with them where to find the key.

A QUIET PEACEFUL ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth stay and was up to it's usual high standards with the added bonus of beautiful weather. The property was spotlessly clean, everything in good working order and this time we did not even light a fire. The owners as always very welcoming and hospitable . Travelled a bit further afield this time but not dissappointed finding more beautiful places to explore. Even saw the "Giant" in Limerick!!

Thank you again and alrady looking forward to next year

Lovely Warm Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring the West of Ireland and this cottage was ideally situated for us. The cottage was lovely and comfortable and had all the facilities we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms could be warmed with storage heaters. We found we didn't need to use them much as we lit the fire every evening and this provided plenty of heat. There are 2 pubs within a mile of the cottage and a garage with a well stocked supermarket about a half hour walk away. We would recommend this cottage for those wanting a relaxing time away from it all, also for those wanting to explore this beautiful part of Ireland. Thank you Kathleen and Jack for your most warm welcome.
