Great location to get away from everything!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great little cottage! Me and my wife spent a few days here and it was a very neat cottage in a great location. The pictures don't do any justice to how nice the surrounding scenery is at this cottage! It's right off the Ring of Beara so if you fancy a drive with stunning scenery then this is an even better location for you! Ardgroom is just down the road where you can get some supplies if you forgot anything.
All in all a great cottage and very helpful owners. Never had any problem contacting them and they were very helpful with any inquiries. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone!

The rustic charm of a beauifully renovated cottage has everyting that you need and more to have an enjoyable stay. Ideal location for lovely long walks with amazing scenery.Nice and snug with an open fire if you wish. Local manager near- by should you need them. The weather was perfect, yes perfect no rain whatsoever that also enhanced our trip!

Un lieu idéal...

  • 5 of 5
Lieu idéal pour des vacances loin de toute agitation. L'anneau de Beara est magnifique et nettement moins touristique que celui du Kerry !
Le cottage est fonctionnel, grand (8 couchages) et Mike est un propriétaire charmant et accueillant.
J'y retourne l'an prochain !

Irischer Sommer in Molly´s Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Sehr schönes, einladendes Ferienhaus am ruhigeren Abschnitt des Ring of Beara gelegen, in unmittelbarer Nähe eines kleinen Piers, mit malerischem Blick auf die Bucht. Kein W-Lan und TV war für unsere Kinder eine Wohltat, und gelegentlichen Zugang zum Internet bietet das Post Office im Ort.
Spaziergänge und Wanderungen liegen direkt vor der Haustür und tropische Gärten und beeindruckende Naturparks (wunderschön: Gleninchaquin Park) sowie Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind einfach mit dem Auto zu erreichen.
Vielen Dank an Barbara und Mike für die sehr aufmerksame und liebevolle Betreuung, wir fühlten uns wirklich gut aufgehoben. Die Bootsfahrt mit Mike war ein Erlebnis für alle.
Das Haus hat ein kleines, voll ausgestattetes Zusatzgebäude für 2 Personen. Das nächste Mal kommen wir dann mit den Großeltern.
Wir können diesen wundervollen Flecken Irlands mit Ruhe, Natur und freundlichen Menschen jedem empfehlen.

Ruhe pur

  • 5 of 5
Nach einer langen Autofahrt von Dublin fanden wir Molly's Cottage inmitten der typisch irischen Idylle. Und dort passt es auch genau rein ;-) Das Cottage teilten wir uns mit 6 Mädels zwischen 20-27. Es war total spaßig abends zusammen zu kochen und dann gemütlich zusammenzusitzen. Die Erholung war bei der Ruhe, die einen dort umgibt, voll und ganz gegeben. Mit dem Auto erreichten wir viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, wenn auch nach längerer Fahrtzeit, aber das ist in Irland ja nicht ungewöhnlich. Mike gab uns Tipps zu Ausflugszielen und sorgte dafür, dass wir es bequem hatten und sogar das nebenliegende, zu der Zeit freistehende Cottage zum duschen nutzen konnten. Letztendlich nahme er uns mit auf eine kurze Bootsfahrt, bei der wir Seelöwen live bewundern konnten. Danke nochmals! Eine Oase für Leute die sich entspannen und abschalten möchten.

Mollys Cottage - ein Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5
Mit dem Ziel in Irland Erholung und Langsamkeit zu tanken haben wir (zwei Erwachsene, 2 Kinder 8,11) drei Wochen in Mollys Cottage verbracht. Schon beim Ankommen haben wir gesehen, daß die Fotos in keinster Weise geschönt sind, sondern den traumhaften Ausblick und das authentisch irische Feeling wiedergeben. Uns hat außerordentlich gut gefallen, daß in dem uralten, mit viel liebe wieder aufgebauten Cottage keine unnötigen Extras eingebracht wurden. Wir haben täglich in der Küche gekocht, häufig Wäsche gewaschen und die Wäsche, wie in Irland üblich draußen aufgehangen. Der Eigentümer hat uns freundschaftlich willkommen geheißen und stand immer für uns zur Verfügung, wenn es Fragen oder Wünsche gab!
Das Haus ist direkt am Meer. Wenn man den Steinstrand entlangläuft (bei Ebbe) findet man in Richtung der Landzunge zu einem feinen Sandstrand, den man für sich alleine hat und der wunderbare Muscheln beherbergt.
Das Einkaufen in Ardgroom ist im Dorfladen möglich, der alles notwendige hat und in dem man nach einer Woche wie ein einheimischer gegrüßt wird.
Das Ferienhaus hält alles was es verspricht - das irische Leben mit irischem Komfort! Ich kann es von ganzem Herzen empfehlen.

Ich freue mich schon auf das nächste Wiedersehen mit Barbara und Mike!
