We had a fabulous 2 weeks in your lovely apartment. It combined taditional village street living with contemporary apartment courtyard. Nora, you have been extremely supportive wiht yur time and everything we needed including fresh linen & towels.
We thoroughly enjoyed Rosscarbery & surounding areas & will definatly return. We will highly recommend this apartment to our frineds. thanking you so much, Kind regards & Best wishes.
We last stayed at this apartment 7 years ago.
We love Rosscarbery and the location of this apartment could not be more central. Although a car is recommended to visit the many beautiful spots in the Rosscarbery area, being in the town square the apartment is literally two minutes walk from restaurants, bars and shops!
Nora gave us a very warm welcome back with freshly baked scones, jam, etc., waiting for us on arrival.
The apartment is well equipped - especially the kitchen which, though compact, is well designed and has all you could want if you prefer to cook for yourselves rather than venture out.
We had a great time and would happily recommend this apartment.
We stayed in this apartment with our teenage children. It was our first time in west Cork. We found it to be a great location and the town of Rosscarbery was a perfect haven to rewind in with it many eateries and pubs. We found Nora a great hostess with her vast knowledge and many contacts even sourcing us GAA tickets for the hurling. Would highly recommend this property and town. We will definitely be returning.
My husband and I spent a total of 24 days touring Ireland. Our most delightful time was spent in Rosscarbery at this charming apartment and town. Nora helped make this so by her warm welcome (homemade scones and jam, a warm loaf of brown bread, and tea and lemon tarts). She was also very helpful with local information - nearby towns and sights to visit, etc.. Just around the corner from the apartment was a grocery store, several pubs and a couple of small eateries (the Chinese food was surprisingly very good). This was a GOLDEN FIND and someday we hope to return.
The listing description was accurate regarding the apartment and the community. The photos were accurate as was the description. My husband and I stayed for five nights and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The apartment was spotless and well appointed. Nora was super - she gave us wonderful suggestions as far as sites to see and information about surrounding areas. We traveled a bit to other towns and toured the Waterford Crystal Factory, Blarney Castle, Cobh Heritage Museum, (golfed) Old Head Golf Course in Kinsale, drove through the Ring of Kerry, toured the Tower Castles and Killarney. One of our favorite past-times was walking out to the ocean and roaming the nearby cliffs.We found the Locals to be very friendly. There were several local eateries that provide excellent food and wine.
As a hostess Nora was outstanding as well as the scones, and treats she had stocked our kitchen with before our arrival. I especially appreciated being able to do laundry in our apartment since we had been traveling for a spell prior to our arrival in Rosscarbery.
I would give this a 5 star and recommend it for a wonderful holiday.
Our week long stay at Croi an Bháile was the highlight of our 3 week visit to Ireland. Our warm welcome by Nora (including her fresh, homemade scones and brown bread and fruit) was just the start of an enchanted week we will never forget! The apartment is more beautiful than the few photos on the website can reveal, and everything we needed was right at our fingertips. Nora has the apartment so nicely furnished and everything is in pristine condition. The natural light from the skylights was wonderful and kept everything cheerful even on a cloudy day.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the small town which is in a perfect location for a home base from which to explore the southern coast of Ireland. Despite its small size, Rosscarbery has every convenience needed to ensure a comfortable stay. Anytime we dropped in at Nora's shop down the street she was happy to chat with us and she had great suggestions about places to see and things to do locally. We especially enjoyed the hill walk at Carrigfadda Church, which we would never have known about if she had not told us about it.
We would highly recommend Croi an Bhaile as a delightful place to discover Ireland. We will never forget our lovely visits with dear Nora or our magical week in Rosscarbery. We are already trying to figure out how soon we can return!
A beautiful haven in this beautiful town. I have been coming to Rosscarbery for many many years with my extended family. I would highly recommend this apartment. Beautifully furnished with everything you require for a home from home vacation. Nora the owner is a fantastic host, so welcoming, and happy to assist with any issues you might have. A true gem in the heart of beautiful West Cork. My two children were delighted with the "hidden house", that we stayed in. I would be more than happy to recommend this house to any of my friends.
