GREAT IRELAND VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Ireland several times and this was by far my best experience. The house is in a great location, putting you within walking distance to the town, the water, and hiking trails. Additionally, you have spectacular views of the bay/rolling mountains from seemingly every window.

As for the house itself, it's nicely sized with plenty of space, good property (meticulously maintained landscaping), modern amenities (washer/dryer, modern kitchen, etc), and very clean.

Owners were great and easy to deal with. Seemed like very nice people.

I would definitely recommend this property to any friend or family member planning to travel to Ireland.

The hiking trails are great, and there are some good golf courses in the area. You'll make fast friends at the pubs, and the locals will even expect you to sing some Irish ballads with them around closing time. All in all, there was no shortage of fun things to do.

If you go to Ireland, this is the place to stay.

WONDERFUL SUMMER EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Excellent Irish country house in the quaint village of Kilcrohane. Spectacular accomodations with wonderful views. Close to the town and only a short walk to the water. The quintessential Irish vacation experience. Would highly recommend.

AN UNFORGETTABLE PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Had an unbelievable time at Dunmahon House. A beautiful home with great space and top of the line everything. Really loved cooking in the kitchen. The weather was perfect and the people were so friendly. The peninsula is breathtaking. A very relaxing and refreshing stay. The Sheeps Head walks, swimming at the pier, bicycle rides, tennis, and golf kept us very busy during hte day and the local pubs gave us a great time at night. The food was delicious too! Especially the fresh seafood. I'll definitely be back!

WE FOUND HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this beautiful home 3 - 4 times and each time have discovered more magical sights to see. Kilcrohane is a charming village and we have met many wonderful people there. We enjoyed the food at the Bayview as well as their musical nights.

We would recommend this home to a friend only if we are not able to visit ourselves!

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our 4 boys aged 9 through 13 just returned from a woderful week at Dunmahon where we truly enjoyed our experience. The house is as advertised - large, airy, beautiful views and extremely comfortable. The weather was excellent during the week, although the weather in the rest of the country was not - a frequent occurrence I hear, and the views on those blue sky days were just spectacular.

The tennis court was a great diversion, and the large lawn and extensive shrubbery was also much enjoyed. Proximity to the village was a wonderful plus and we enjoyed sending our boys over the road to Frank's for the paper and other basics. The hiking was great and we climbed to the top of the mountain and also enjoyed a little fishing - the mackerel remain safe from our determined but largely uninformed efforts.

In general we loved it, and while access to the water is plentiful, a beach for swimming in the area would have been a bonus.

Pam the house manager was wonderful and always available to answer questions and provide input.

WHEN HE GOT IT FINISHED,SURE HE CALLED IT DUNMAHON

  • 5 of 5
Joan and I have done some fairly extensive international travel over the years , including the Swiss and Italian
Alps, the Costa del Sol, and even the long boats on the Mersey Canal in the midlands of England and the Great Wall of China. But of all these fabulous treats, none has been as exciting, yet relaxing, as our stay at Dunmahon in the peaceful village of Kilcrohane on the wild and beautiful Sheep’s Head Peninsula in West Cork.

We were privileged to be with a small, diverse group of Irish traditional folk musicians from Connecticut, USA, so, at the end of the day, we would do what we liked to do best, we would play our favorite tunes of Ireland in the glassed sunroom on the side of the house.

There was no lack of space anywhere. We could eat in the dining room or the sunroom, or the intimate “pub room” for that matter. The bedrooms were spacious with spectacular views and the hallways were wide and stately, We loved the many nooks and crannies for cozy reading and the large kitchens where we always had nice Irish breakfasts before starting out on our day‘s adventures.

We did a lot of hiking on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula, especially down the end by the lighthouse. Also, over on Mizen Head, there were so many interesting sights to see, we would always run out of time.

Luckily we were there when the folk concerts were being held in the Bantry House in the town of Bantry, about a half hour up the peninsula. Ireland’s best musicians were playing and singing there at the time, including Christy Moore, who lived just up the road from Kilcrohane.

We loved the quiet, friendly town of Kilcrohane with its cozy pubs, stores and restaurants, just a small stroll up the rhododendron-lined drive of Dunmahon.

We would love to experience this all again, so we hope nothing ever changes.
