Staying at Rossbrin was exactly what our family was looking for. Coming from Hong Kong, we wanted something isolated but not isolating; secluded but not remote. Whether taking the short talk down to the coast or the scenic drive into Schull, the Addeyhouse is ideally located in the area of fine dining, scenic drives, and cultural/historic sights. My young sons (ages 5 and 7) loved the expansive yard and animals. My parents and I enjoyed the fabulous sea views, quiet, and access to fresh food. The house was tidy and cozy, with ample room for the five of us (three adults and two children).
Renting a car in Cork, we enjoyed the beautiful drive to Rossbrin and found the house without much difficulty. (When Nick sends directions like, "...turn right at the cow and keep going past the black dog..." you know it is going to be a great location.) Day trips included a boat to Cape Clear, driving to the Ring of Kerry, Mizen Head, numerous castles and stone circles, Baltimore, dining at The Bunratty Inn... it was all lovely. We look forward to the day we can return.
